    I asked the kason dealer n she told me about this serial thing,n i'm willing to share it with all of the kason users.

    The serial code divided into 2 parts.
    The first one is like the distribution code.By this,we could find out which part is it distributed.Mine is from china,guangxi,as i bought it in guilin.

    The second part is the manufacture code,which begins with a letter.
    The 1st letter is the year,as A is for 2001,B is for 2002,and so on.
    The second letter is the month,as A for Jan,B for Feb,and so on.

    The other numbers on the end is the numbers of rackets made.
    For example:My TSF300A, GB0129CH it means it is made on 2007 Feb,n it's the 129th TSF300A racket made on 2007.

    It appears that kason also has the country code,like CH,KR,HK,etc on the end side of the serials,and as i was told by the dealer,the guarantee is only valid if it's CH.

    That's it for now.I'll update the info once i got more.

    Hope it'll be useful.



    Just follow the pattern:

    --------------------------------------
    RACKET MODEL:KASON TSF300A
    SERIAL CODE:25674687 GB0129CH
    SOURCE: Kason dealer,Guilin
    --------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------
    RACKET MODEL:Kason carvel u-3
    SERIAL CODE: 25674687 FJ1491CH
    SOURCE: Kason dealer,Guilin
    --------------------------------------

    Unlike Yonex where the serial numbers are important to determine fake numbers, are there any fake Kason products as well?? Kason shoes are quite nice and affordable..

    Yonex serial numbers r important to determine whether it is fake or not..where as for kason,it's basically just giving some infos for the buyers,so that they know when was it made,etc..as back then kason still dont have any big issues about ppl faking their products.But yes,my kason retailer told me that they've found out in some part of china,esp guangdong province,they sell the fake TSF.So,maybe the serial numbers on kason's racket might be useful these days.

    From what i heard from the most kason shoes users...yes,they all said so..even though they might have felt a bit of feet sore for the first days..

    Do u have any kason products on u?

    When did u buy those?All the kason rackets which manufactured after 2001 should have serial numbers.R u sure it's real?Btw,Kason TSF300A supposed to be manufactured after the mid 2006,in china,while urs r manufactured in may 2006.It's probably fake..unless if it is manufactured kind of earlier in u place.
    How much u bought those?

    Scrub my previous post stating my Kason racket's serial code, they sent me the wrong one in the mail :crying: (they actually sent me the TSF 300 D instead of the Attack version) so that serial is incorrect.:eek: Although I have to say I was well impressed with the physical appearance of the Defensive version, very striking red paintjob.

    Will post the proper one when I get later tonight.:rolleyes:

    Smichz, I bought my K-Max from racketsupply.com and the other two from BC members. I have no reason to believe that the 300A is fake based on the serial number explaination or by the paint. My friend just bought a 300D from racketsupply and his serial number starts with FK####US. According to what you said his racket shouldn't have been made yet (K=2011). I have attached some pictures of my 300A.

    jono88, I think you should read Smichz's explanation again. According to Smichz's description, the first letter is year, the second letter is month. F = 2006 K = 11 (Nov).
