    It is fake [​IMG]. Indicated in red, the cone code for year 2011 will never have shaft serial starting with 7 ...

    It is not, but even for 2010 the shaft serial should not start with 7 ... The "0" at the 6th number means something else and should at least start with "2" for rackets sold in the stores. Shaft serial starting with 7 is from somewhere in 2007-2008 ...

    From the pics they look fine to me if they are the ones from ingleside and san jose ... Wouldn't buy that story though about pre-strung with BG70Pro and never used :D. For one the tension is over warranty so could never have come "pre-strung" from Yonex.

    Thanks :D, I am somewhat curious about that string that was strung on the Yonex Arcsaber I-slash as it looks a bit thick or weird o.0'', but I think the arc saber 10 looks fine. Also does the serial # seem to be fine though?

    For those, looking for a reply. Normally we would only be straight to point out those that is obviously problematic. Those that looks fine, we would take some time to check it out.

    But otherwise, all these above seems fine.

    So relax, no need to keep re-posting. I've been quite busy lately, sorry.
