    Appreciated if you can help on identifying this new racket just bought from ebay seller mysportsshop. I tried the racket today in the play. Feels a little heavy and not sure if it is genuine. This seller is usually commended as selling genuine rackets from Taiwan and shipped in USA. That is the reason I bought from him. Thanks for the help.

    Fake one, stay away ;) I don't think there is anyone on eBay selling genuine "JP" cone code rackets.
    The bag is fake/wrong, the box doesn't exist, the stickers are wrong, the lettertype is wrong for the numbers, etc. etc. ...

    Thanks!
    He writes: "This is Original YONEX Racket (Class G), Maybe you would ask, why it so cheap ?
    Because this is not Japan retail version, But it's original racket frame, just printed in china, so it get the same quality as original. there is comes with a box case and lint cover bag as you can see in the picture."

    It was a little bit strange to me, because I never heard for that thing: "original racket frame, just printed in China".

    that's 100% fake

    there is no such thing as class G Yonex racket
    it is same with the rest, it is a clone racket

    real Yonex does not come with box, and the soft cloth bag racket looks pretty fake
    the grip, sunrise sticker, and "30t" sticker, all fake and wrong

    So here my post again in the right forum. i bought te racket from ebay small ad. The seller stays in collogne.

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex ArcSaber 10 Peter Gade
    shaft serial: 7618184
    cone code : 260303JP
    source : ebay (germany)
    price : EUR 90
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    An here some fotos.
    demolidor already said, that its fake because of the serial. but i post some fotos, because i think the fake is very good. The fake has the red point on the fotos

    Zje Screenshot with the shaft: the size of the letters is absolute identical, the difference refers to the optic of my camera

    111IMG_2109_2.jpg 111IMG_2117.jpg 111IMG_2108.jpg 111IMG_2119_2.jpg 111IMG_2112.jpg 111IMG_2120.jpg 111IMG_2124.jpg

    Thanks for the photos. You can see all the little differences, the biggest being the colour and the green buttcap letters for Japan (not to mention the colour and the less than perfect YY logo). And the YY logo on the t-joint is a little too high as is the signature. And of course the grommets look cheap. And the black stripe on the shaft looks like it is running longer towards the t-joint?
    And of course in the last pics the holes should be in exactly the same spot. For the serial number it can never start with a 7 for this model. The last time a serial starting with 7 was used is in 2008 (long before this version existed) ...

    So which eBay seller should be avoided ;)?

    In particular '1.2'. In this case the shaft serial is far too low to correspond with the cone code or vice versa cone code too recent ...
    In fact, now that I think of it, at the date of the cone code this model was out of production already ;).

    Can someone help me with this one:-

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yones Voltric 80
    shaft serial: 9591392
    cone code : 110405SP

    source : ebay
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    The date on the cone code seems ok, 11th of April 2010 but what about the rest?
