    Hi,

    I'm wondering how to identify whether a racket is original or fake? I came across an ArcSaber10 for around AUD$80 and I'm not sure if it's fake or not. But what I know about that shop is, it sells racket from time to time only (it's a grocery shop) and it only has one particular model. Also, the price are always the same regardless of the model. I've used the Cab15 and Nanospeed my friends bought there and I'm pretty sure they're not fakes since it feels the same as the originals that I used before. But I've never used an ArcSaber10 before so I can't really tell. Can anyone tell me how to identify fake rackets? Thanks a lot.

    1. if you saw that in ebay, 99.9% is fake.
    2. check out the cone code or serial number, cone code will tell the manufactured date. example; 120681AU means produced on 12 June 2008. Arc10 comes out in year 2008.
    3. font of the serial number/cone code
    4. grommets, original grommet is different
    5. paint job
    you may check out our ebay's thread to learn something to spot the fake.
    :)

    look at the serial numbers. if you want a real one, don't get it off ebay (even tho you can by genuine off ebay). to make it easy just buy em off badminton stores.
