    I have looked at this guy before on behalf of another forum query. The photo of the person holding the camera, on their 'About me' reminded me.

    As I recall this seller sells fakes at high prices. In my opinion, I would not proceed.

    If you wish to proceed, ask the seller to provide top to bottom pictures of the actual racket ( including serials) allocated to the auction.

    Me, I would look elsewhere. IMHO, of course.

    Found it - this seller was discussed in post 2917 on this thread.

    The yonex logo on the cap is stick on. You tell me if it is genuine?

    Simellis - Where did you quote weiming_1984 from? Also, are you referring to the Yonex hologram sticker? If so, that is not an indicator.

    Weiming_1984 - From those basic pics and a few other clues, I have my doubts as to whether they are genuine. I would look elsewhere, or else ask them for full photos from top to toe with serials.

    racket model: Arc Saber 10
    shaft serial: 7494731
    cone code : 180282JP
    source : Ebay ,Maylam 99
    price : $125.00

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Yonex-ArcSaber-10-JP-Red-65Ti-Badminton-Racket_W0QQitemZ250376322234QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item250376322234&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A4|65%3A10|39%3A1|240%3A1318



    The shaft serial looks a tiny bit sketchy, but I need a second opinion.

    otherwise, I'll be getting http://cgi.ebay.com/YONEX-BADMINTON...55145QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262

    There's a typo in your cone number. Should be 300572SW.
    Without full photos, apart from the few small ones I've seen, I'd say it looks genuine to me. That's assuming the seller sends the one in the photo.

    Since the deadline is inching closer: personally I agree with klc28 and would buy it and pick it up in person and if possible pay cash although you can always claim a refund with paypal as far as I know(?).

    Nothing wrong with it at first sight. Don't you have the other numbers like above? (shaft & cone; you now have the cone code)

    From the NS8000 auction: "This Selling Price is Whole Sale Price direct from wholesaler Taiwan clone made A-Grade"

    And for the 9000 "JP" ones: "This Selling Price is Whole Sale Price direct from wholesaler Taiwan clone made A-Grade."

    those rackets are so fake. the number on the cone is very different from the original one especially for the number '2'.
