    I would guess its fake because I do not believe the last number of the cone code can be 0. There cant be a "0" version ... it has to be at least 1.

    SP is not printed on Shaft; SP is only printed on Cone. I,m in the process of finding a camera phone cable to attach to computer. Then I will upload the pics as well.

    ArcSaber 10 Pics


    As promised I am uploading the pic. I also suspect that its a Fake Racket. however, I am surprised at the material used in the manufacturing of this racket. It has a very firm feel and doesnt feel fake at all.

    The PBSI logo is not correct, should be without S & P.

    G3 grip size is pretty rare for 4U plus the Yonex logo on the T-Joint looks crocked as well.

    Checkpoint 1: Yonex ArcSaber 10 4UG3 ?!? -> FAIL [​IMG]

    It was only available in 2U and 3U and perhaps only in Europe in a 2UG3 and 3UG3 combo. Have never seen nor heard of a 4UG3 combo, ever ...
    Sorry to break it to you but this clone has many tells and seems quite a low grade one because of it. Definitely not worth a quarter of what you paid for it ...

    Thank You all for your valuable inputs. I spoke to the person from whom i bought the racket. He is my friend's colleague and he said he can return the money. Saturday I will meet him and hopefully collect my money back. Once again Thanks
