    I just bought this ArcSaber10 off www.badmintonshoponline.us
    I tried the racket at my local club today, and everyone was saying it's fake. I dont know whether to beleive them or not.
    I think the grommets might be fake (are they) it's JP coded. Im australian. I dont see how it could possibly be fake. The store is ment to be legitimate (right?)
    and the racket seems to play well. Are all my friends (that have Nanospeed rackets) just speeking through jelousy or something?
    Hmm, i dunno, i dont think its fake.
    Here are alot of pictures i took of it.

    can u take a photo with better light or use a better flash with lower ISO? the colour from the first photo looks less metallic than it should be, but hard to tell, the rest looks pretty good, unless mine is fake too :D

    It's genuine. Either A, they are jelous, or B, they "think" they know how to detemine a genuine racket but they really don't.

    looks clean to me~..your friends' knowledge on fake rackets seem to be minimal

    the onli weird part about this is where the tie off was..although it doesn't really matter..but..it just doeesnt look as "pro"..lol

    Since im Australian most people say its fake because its JP coded.
    One person is trying to tell me that its fake in Australia, but if i were to move to Japan it would be real whilst im in Japan.
    Another person says that its not a bright enough red to be real, this same person says that there's something wrong with the t-joint.
    Funny story about that actually. It plays very well, and a person that was saying it was fake, and useless said that he wanted to use it for a match just to "see... how the strings go" he says that my racket is only good because its strung with Nanogy98. I think that he just cant take no-longer having the best racket their... haha

    I think they don't know what they are talking about or they are just jealous.
