    Default Is this Yonex NS9900 Fake?

    Just got this from Hong Kong paying HKD$1020 for the racket. hkd$990 for the body + hkd$30 strung (BG85). I bought several Yonex rackets before and this one is a bit different so please help to identify if this is fake or not. Thanks in advance. Pictures below:Name:  IMG_0161.jpg

    since it is from HK, i am guessing it is from Kin Yee / Emmy as that looks like Kin Yee / Emmy style pattern:

    That's right it's from Kin Yee. I live in US and ask my friend in HK to make this purchase. Is this shop a reputable retailer?

    haha.

    don't worry. Kin Yee is legit.

    sometimes the most useful information is the exact shop where you get it from, as well as the price.

    That's amazing someone can identify the shop/stringer by just looking at the pattern of the string. I've come to a right place.

    Looks like the stringer skipped the second last cross on the bottom (you can see the shared grommet above the last string that has no cross string in it). Probably something the stringer does all the time and if you know the location the racket was bought you could make a good guess....

    Of course it helps that some guys on here have 100+ rackets...

    according to Emmy, they have been doing that for decades.

    what would be even more amazing is if one can identify the stringer from the way they tie the knots, and how they route the tie off at the corners. i swear i used to use this stringer in HK and he routes/overlaps all the tie offs exactly the same way.

    My only complaint is the cheap cover because I saw at some other forum that the ns9900 comes with a nice cover.

    I got an Armortec cover for an MP10 so I kept my mouth shut
