    so have the Panda tried out the strings?

    I would not trust DX. I purchased an item (not badminton related) from them a while back - they said the item would arrive with X amount of business days. It did not, so I submitted a customer service complaint on their website to follow up regarding the item - supposedly they would respond within 48 hours, they did not. I submitted a PayPal claim and got my money back instantly. At he same time, I ordered the same item else where on Ebay and got my item within 3 day from the seller.

    The item eventually came from DX but it took way too long. Customer service from DX finally responses later and asked me if the item arrived and I said yes - but I got my money back already. Their English is not great, seems like broken English or English as a second language.

    The thing is that it was more than two weeks and they failed to respond in a timely manner. They did not give me tracking info either.

    Based on that, I had to do PayPal claim then I got my money back, but hte item eventually came, like over a month later.

    Got my 3 packs of Nanogy 95 (1 grey and 2 white).
    Well, at the very least the packaging is flawed. The "cuts" were not straight, some discolouration and two of the packs were "open" at the bottom. I took some pics (see below link)

    https://picasaweb.google.com/adidasc...eat=directlink

    Other than that the strings "seems" fine (have not played with it yet).

    These could possibly be authentic string sold in bulk due to packaging issues (just speculating). Still not sure either way though.

    i got my 5 pack too.

    aside from the non right angle packaging, the graphics and fonts are also less sharp on an A/B comparison.

    i haven't have time to open up the strings to compare directly.

    as for packing issue. i don't know. i was told that Yonex strings are all properly made in Japan, so the chances that some get leaked to China is a bit low.

    maybe these are good for stringing cheap rackets.

    Guys these are FAKE FAKE FAKE!! (Yonex Nanogy 95)
    I received my package of 3 today and everything about it screams fake.
    The font is off, the coloring is off, the packaging material is terrible, there's no proper stickers on the package and there's no yonex text on the strings. I also read on the DX comment section that Nanogy 95 only comes in cosmic gold and was never produced in black. DO NOT BUY!!

    Guys. Already warned you earlier. The meagre savings is not worth the risk unless u use them in bulk. Putting fake questionable quality strings on our prized rackets is a no no. Stringing them on lesser rackets also can't bring about much pride and confidence.

    Might be original strings that does not pass QC.

    Well i guess they arent original BUT how do you guys think of the strings? even if they arent leg. they still could be playable, and even be good.
