    Default Do APACS fakes exist?

    Hi All

    I want to buy some rackets off ebay off racket sport who seems fine but I just wanted to know if there were known cases of APACS fakes or is it all generally related to Yonex high ends?

    thanks,

    That guy's rackets aren't fake. Many people from this forum have bought from him, including me, and we all say that they are completely genuine APACS rackets.

    In reply to your question, to date I have yet to see a fake clone racket (ie Fleet, Apacs, etc). The only fakes I have seen are Yonex ones. Given the higher margins of the Yonex brand that would be logical.

    However, if margins on another popular brand become too much I'm sure the fakers would happily paint their rackets in whatever scheme is needed. the question is, does the GLOBAL badminton market have another Tier1 brand like Yonex?

    I think people would try to make fake yonex rackets because they would make more profit than making a fake apacs racket.

    Hi guys....

    confirmed from Apacs Malaysia... FAKE Apacs do exist. Personally, I have not seen a fake one yet ...

    Fake apacs usually from Malaysia and Indonesia.. Since Apacs is very popular there.....

    I think this hologram sticker is for only recent rackets made. i got a few old ones without the hologram sticker.

    making Apacs fakes won't gain profit, since the original one is quite cheap..

    Default Fake Apacs

    Yes .. . really want to have a look on those FAKE Apacs ...

    Out of the topic, Yonex seems don't have any patent on their technology and paint job. Check on their web-site, there are no TM on whatever technology they use in their badminton/tennis rackets. Are they joining OPEN SOURCE stream....?

    LOL
