    There is simply no way he could have bought it at JJB. Because in that case the cone code wouldn't end on CH (for China) nor would it have a hologram sticker covering that area which in itself is not typical for one that ends on CH :D.

    squash_mart, you should not doubt this seller :)
    very good service
    he is also member in this forum (with name RKEP eric)
    I could say that he sells legit racket

    P.S: don't forget to buy overgrip or replacement grip from him
    when buying a racket he will give you 3 over grip
    but if you need replacement grip or another overgrip you could order it from him
    he has his own brand which is RKEP (very famous for being good quality and cheap)

    for replacement grip, if you like Karakal super PU, you should try RKEP G05 (Ultimate)
    or for something less tacky but comfortable, try power master, G06
    for overgrip, go for Elite, G09

    sorry for doing advertisement here, I am not affiliated with eric / squash_mart
    but many people do says their grip is one of the best in the market (good quality and cheap, what could you expect more?)
    that's why I recommend it (factory grip is BAD even from Yonex one)

    on the cone code: month 88?
    definitely a fake..

    Thanks, but could you please say what it is about the serial numbers that makes it a fake, as I'd like to be able to 'prove' it to the seller.

    Thanks. . .

    first, the bag is definitely fake
    second, Yonex racket did not come with plastic bag (like in the picture)


    the main problem is that cone code:
    cone code is date when the racket being made
    DD MM Y X and 2 code of distribution

    090755CH
    it means that this racket is made at date day 09, month 07 (July) 2005 for China distribution.
    do you see anything strange? if not I will tell you, Voltric 70 did not exists back then

    also even if it does exists back then
    move to shaft serial
    shaft serial is one of a kind number that will tell this racket is racket number XXXth that Yonex made
    in your case, this racket is number 2222722 th racket that Yonex made

    this shaft serial is really low, maybe back then in 2000, whereas the cone code said, this racket is 2005 production (which when voltric did not exists)
    or this is a 2015 racket? racket from future? lol..

    I have a question regarding the above. Does the racket production serial number always increase (ie from new model to new model) or does it ever get reset and start from a lower number whenever a new model is out? Basically what I'm asking is what would be the serial number for a Yonex Nanoray 700RP, would it carry on from the 9xxxxxx, or could it be that the production serial numbers for the Nanoray 700RP start with 2xxxxxx. Hope you understand what I'm asking, thanks
