    Hi. I just bought an arcsaber 100 ltd from ebay here:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/120828996911?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_1701wt_1185

    and I am having some doubts about the genuinicity of the racket so I would love your guys help :)

    Here are some pictures. Notice that in picture 2, the part where the shaft connects with the cone doesn't look so smooth and in picture 5, the prints of the weights are a little bit far to the left side, not centered. Also, the serial number and weights are engraved, but doesn't feel to be engraved as deeply as my genuine yonex voltric 80. Thanks guys!

    Also, the paint job on the frame head is kind of rough when you run your fingers across them, I don't know if this i normal or not...

    based on the picture, I don't think it is counterfeit..
    however I didn't check the shaft serials and cone code (too old for me, and too lazy to research it)

    if i am not mistaken the 100 limited came out about 2 year at the most .. and your cone says 180102

    which is January 18 2002.. thats is way wrong

    i have a very big hunch this is a fake

    it does, but sometimes people sell it without cover (and they bought the cover)
    or they ran out of cover and give them the normal one
    or the seller keep the bag because it is limited edition bag and sell it separately
    as far as I know, it is very rare (to the point I never saw one) to have fake CD code racket

    Id say its genuine regardless of the non-matching bag. everything else seems right
