    The only fake indication from the pic that i can see is the grommet, it does look that neat. But i could also caused by the stringer. Perhaps you can provide closer and clearer pics for us to see more detail.

    Are the codes number engraved or printed? The production code indicates the racket was produced on 18 Aug 2008, i cant remember exactly when was Arc10 was released, maybe someone can confirm?

    Tie Juetsue, you probably should check the codes with these guys:

    what do you mean by printed--- it is cut into the metal if thats what you mean. when you move you fingers along the code it is dented in. Is that engraved?

    What additional detail(s) would you like? If you did not copy the wrong shaft serial, and date code...then it must be counterfeit.

    From what I can see, it looks genuine so far. The grommet holes at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock looks like my Arcsaber 10.

    the fakes are getting better, having similar looking gromments doesn't mean it's real

    Tie juetsue, take a closeup pic of the serial numbers, and another pic on the bottom cap.

    The engraved specs (regarding weight and grip) are a likely sign that your racket is real, as well as the serial numbers, but it's best to check with the link that Yoppy posted to get a confirmation on the correct serial.

    Most likely the racket is legit. Cheers!

    Got nothing better to do than pestering this young lad :p?

    It is a FAKE [​IMG]. That serial number belongs to something late 2009 not August 2008.

    Sorry Tie juetsue the racket is likely to be fake. The print inside at 3 and 9 oclock are defenately different than the real one.
