    Not only that, but this "879191JP" represents the production date and distribution region, in this case the 87th day of the 91st month of 2009 (87/91/9) ;) destined for Japan (obviously not in this case since it's just a fake from China). The one item left looks pretty dodgy as well looking at how crooked the yonex logo is printed on the bag. And unless adult toys are the object private feedback is to be frowned upon as well [​IMG].

    I'd suggest a search of the forum before posting... plus for that price you might be better off buying from mybadmintonstore.com but up to you if they are legit.

    This is indeed the correct place for eBay purchases. Due to the number of fakes on eBay, easily 95%, it's the "enter at your own risk" teritory.

    In this case though it looks good [​IMG], answering nmop7584's question at the same time. These items are in NA already for roughly the same price so it's either or really. The only benefit you'd have ordering from the place druss mentioned is that you can choose your own string and tension to your preference (don't know if they go above the recommended tension).

    :D That's it. The release date for Yonex Arcsaber Z-Slash was 19 September 2009 if I remember correctly. Definitely September 2009 ... production started in August 2009.

    They coulda at least make it less obvious. It couldn't of been produced in 87/91/09 do you think?

    http://shop.ebay.ca/maylam99/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

    Just curious if anyone has bought from this guy before? Cant tell if his stuff is real, the price is set just so that its about 50ish below retail but not so cheap that its instantly considered fake, i've read some of the feedbacks, while majority of the people gave positives, some did say they've gotton fake rackets.

    heads up and all feedback are appreciated

    cheers

    [​IMG] Stay well clear ;). You'll probably find some more info if you use maylam99 as a search term ...

    maylam99 product description:

    "This Selling Price is Whole Sale Price direct from wholesaler Taiwan clone made A-Grade "

    yet it has almost perfect looking
    "The laser series number is 74946xx ~ 74947xx / 180282 JP."


    fakes looking more authentic and fakes seller getting more real!

    Why even take the chance.... www.mybadmintonstore.com is $194 shipped... that ebay site is $164 shipped. That's only $30 USD difference.

    It doesn't say the clone description for the ArcSaber 7. I don't think it used to say that for any of his stuff. He's been selling these for a couple of years now and haven't really come across others, one or a few max with US cone code perhaps. The serial number doesn't check out but if you were to come across these in a store you'd never know it (but if I remember correctly there were still some difference noticable).

    Wel maylam is selling JP ones after all ;):D

    That would be a fake [​IMG]. What's the seller's eBay ID? / online store so others are warned [​IMG].
