    I'm new to this forum but anyway I'm hoping for some help to identify this. I posted a request on here [http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...uiries-(no-ebay-s-or-online-auction)/page24]; but I've gotten any respond yet. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question? Pardon me if I'm in the wrong place.
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex Voltric Z-Force
    shaft serial: 3931339

    cone code : 161123US
    source : gift from a friend
    price : US $180
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    Additional info: Both of the codes don't look really clear. I actually have to bring the racquet to the sunlight to read the digits. ( I later found out from this forum that Yonex even uses white paint on white surface? this is what makes me feel less worried because the VTZF's cone is in white, but still need your help to make sure.)I later checked it with my friend. She bought it off ebay via a seller named: viviennecat0. However, his/her name appears in the shipping address as well as my paypal history as "Ai Ting Cheng"(this chinese name sounds so suspicious that the racquet might be a fake one :(.) This is the link to the racquet [http://www.ebay.com/itm/330864844787?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649]. The only thing that makes me less worried is the racquet was shipped to me from California. This is the 1st time I ever try BC so pardon me if there's anything I'm doing wrong. Appreciate y'all help.

    I much appreciate y'all for replying to the post. Here is a few more images of the cone code. It literally took me 30 mins just to get these. I had to rotate the racquet to correct angles so the camera can capture the code. I don't think I can take pics of the shaft code in anyway. I'm waiting for the last confirm before get it strung :)

    Thats simply what happens when the cone/shaft is white. You can rub some dirt in there if you want to see the serial more clearly :)
