    Hello,

    I know you said UK only, but I'm paying top pounds for the Fu Haifeng one.

    Been looking for it for months.

    Could you send it through the post to Paris? (I'll also pay for the shipment)

    Thank you,
    Cédric

    just be careful with these! they are not original li ning rackets.. No malice to @Valxen, I'll stand corrected if I'm wrong, but I'm 99.99999% sure these are not original

    It will be helpful if others can comment on these

    @giggle do you have any evidence or reasoning to suggest my rackets aren't legitimate?

    I just think it's a coincidence that Cedric posts to buy your FhF LN at this time too.

    My price may be lower than yours but the original I paid was considerably more than I'm selling them for. My reason for sale is I prefer my 88S

    Only a ‘coincidence’ because he bumped up your thread and I happened to notice it.. as stated above, I really don’t like to be the bearer of bad news, especially to ‘tarnish’ your thread, but the uneven grommets, poor quality plastic wrap on the grip are easy tell tale signs. I’ll post some photos of my own n9ii when I have the time, probably tomorrow or the next day.. again, I emphasise that I mean no malice to you, but I would like to highlight this to others for educational purposes.

    And of course if I am wrong, I’ll stand corrected and my most sincerest apologies will be offered

    Poor quality plastic wrap? If the camera and lighting has influenced that il have to take some more pictures.

    I look forward to seeing yours for a comparison

    I'm not experienced enough with LN rackets to comment on authenticity from pictures but I have bought/sold/traded with @Valxen a few times and never had a problem.
    If the rackets aren't genuine then I think the fault would be with the store rather than him.

    Where did you buy the rackets @Valxen?
    If its one of the larger badminton retailers then the authenticity shouldn't be an issue.

    In UK we don't usually have fake rackets unless bought from other regions.

    The 2 unstrung were bought from Sheer Sports in Northampton via their eBay store

    If they are not legitimate then I will pursue a trading standards claim with the store. I'm looking to see if there's a serial number checker type thing I can use similar to Yonex

    The used purple one with strings was bought from tennisnuts.co.uk

    Anything from Tennisnuts would be authentic, I cant comment on the other store.

    This link may help to check authenticity

    Well, if you do a google search on 'li ning n9ii fhf', you'll see clearly that the original grip is supposed to be white.

    And if you do a google search on the product code of your fufu racket 'li ning aypd218', you'll see clearly that its not the right product code anyway.

    Lastly if you do further research on this particular model, you'll know that there are 2 versions of this racket. the international version, and the china version. the difference is that the international version has an individually numbered laser etched serial number on the shaft near the t-joint of the racket, and the Chinese domestic version actually has the CP logo on the cone (this is absent on the intl version).

    Anyway, this racket is supposed to come with a kick ass neoprene racket sleeve, and there was an option to buy it together with some fhf limited edition bag, which I didn't care much about.

    Pictures coming soon for you gentlemen.. You be the judge..

    I'm by far no expert with Li Ning so have no idea on the versions, grip colours and covers.
    Hopefully @Valxen can do the authenticity check and if there's an issue he can return them to the shop for a refund.
    Ive never known UK shops to sell fake rackets so it will be interesting to see if that's the case.
