    I finally had some authentic NBG95 to compare with and the DX string is definitely fake. Everything about it does not match the characteristics of NBG95.

    It's not so much about the quality, it's about something trying to be passed off as something else. I pay for a specific string then I want that specific string.

    Wink spot the odds

    ok guys, a little game for you all..

    just received a few packs of NBG-95 from DX (with the help from a foreign source), i place the order to DX and they did not send me anything and had to claim my money back in PayPal, guess DX were smart enough to smell something...

    scanned the front and back of the packaging, spot something straight-away? (hints: two obvious differences if you have seen or bought a genuine pack of any version before).

    also notice the packaging. the "cut" at the bottom of the package is not 90 degrees.

    by the way guys. DX is a website that sells cheap stuffs. The keyword for Fake/counterfeit is "Designer". As for Yonex products, they are fake for sure. As far as I know, NBG95 does not exist in black

    Just got my order as well... The real NBG95 has a distinct smell to it (kinda nasty if you ask me... sort of plasticky)... Tried stringing it on a crappy racquet and I realized that the the strings don't stretch at all... More indication it's fake

    UKers will know it as Germoline - I quite like it.
