    the number always goes up
    yes they reset it in Feb 2011

    Yonex reach 9999999 in feb 2011
    then they reset it to 24XXXXX (or 23XXXXX)

    when is yonex nanoray comes out? I forgot
    usually they start their production 3-4 months before the release dat (could be as far as 6 months before)

    if the nanoray comes out around august? most likely it will not carry 99XXXXX number
    it will carry 2XXXXXX

    I'd be more concerned about an Ebay store not having a physical outlet than an actual store having an Ebay outlet ;).

    shaft serial: 7653891
    cone code : 171202JP
    source : Tradera Swedish equivalent to eBay
    price : US$80
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    fake, the shaft serial is too low for the cone code (2010)

    for 2010 cone code, the first number of the shaft serial should be 9

    while this one is 7

    if the seller says: this racket is from 2000, then he is lying, arcsaber 10 does not exist in 2000

    based on shaft serials and cone code, it's a FAKE racket
    based on picture inspection, I can confirm that this is definitely a fake racket

    I'm tired to explain it every single time

    I will copy paste it

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

    shaft serial: 7641636
    cone code : 111024JP

    based on cone code means:
    this racket was made by day 11, october 2012 or 2002 for jp distribution
    jp is japan, why it is in sweden?
    then there is no way it is 2002 because arcsaber 7 did not exist back then
    if it's 2012, this racket must be from future because we are no in april 2012

    the grip from the photo is def fake. yonex racket does not come with string
