    I am selling two of my rackets.

    One is a slightly used Arcsaber 7 for $120 cdn.
    I have used this 3 times in total and in brand new condition (no scratches).
    It has a new grip (red) and strung at 25 lbs (yellow color).

    I also have a brand new nanospeed 9000 that I am selling for $140 cdn.
    This one has never been used and still have a cover on the grip.
    It has been strung at 25 lbs.

    You can buy both of them together at $240 cdn.

    local pickup only - Richmond/Vancouver area.

    I'm not trying to ruin your post but you should mention:
    -serial, date code
    -weight, grip size
    -type of string

    NS9000...is it a S or a X?

    I think you should post pictures to prove that they are legitimate racquets. The serial number seems low for an Arc7, which was introduced in the 4th quarter of 2007.

    Very strong feeling that the Arc7 is a counterfeit based ont the serial number alone and agree with ryim.

    not quite sure Matt, that's what it says in the sticker. perhaps thats the tension capacity of the racket.

    Sorry, I took that part out. I mis-read it as "Kilos" instead of "Kilograms" since the units is typically mentioned in grams.

    It looks like both rackets is counterfeit because when you mentioned sticker that gave it away because the racket's sticker does not mention it's weight in kg, it's mentioned in U followed by the grip size. Also the the racket's recommended tension is also listed there as lbs.

    Here is an example using my JP coded rackets. It's a not a sticker thou because Yonex has implemented to laser engraved with the weight/grip/tension information since July 2008 productions.

    sorry to confuse you Matt,

    There is an engraved 3U followed by a 5G in the racket as mentioned in my second post.

    The tension is also noted in lbs and then in kgrams just underneath it.

    I think it's better to wait for me to post some pictures before we start accusing this as fake.

    thanks!

    The racket info is now engraved as of July 2008 as I mentioned above. Most likely this is used as a new security feature. Rackets produced earlier than July of this year will have the sticker.

    There is also a logo there, which only applies to JP coded rackets in the picture above.

    I'm also a little surprised the batch number of the arcsaber is a little low. are these rackets SP coded rmd888? usually there shouldn't be stickers covering the serial numbers as well.

    waiting for the pictures though ^_^

    BTW, even though it says I'm in Mississauga, my hometown IS Vancouver and Richmond so I will have a few people that can make the transaction for me while I'm here. I'll be arriving there in one month from now.

    This might be a dumb (or smart question) - Why are you selling such a high end Yonex model for only $ 140?

    Can you post the FULL serial code PLUS the cone numbers?

    Keep in mind, I wish to buy this item but will ONLY buy the real thing.
