    Sorry but it's a fake.

    The serial number doesnt match its manufactured date.
    But it's surprisingly close.

    Avenger,

    Are you able to re-verify this?

    Regards

    Sam

    shaft serial: 9213059
    cone code : 180302CD

    price : ca 100$
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    you also scared me a little bit. if this one is fake, then it would be the first fake CD racket (a code that almost 100% clean from fake rackets)

    I didnt scare you lol. I was pretty stunned myself. That was very close. haha. Plus the fact that he bought it from a major sporting store, so it was bizarre that it could be fake.

    It's my understanding that SP stands for South Pacific not Singapore and therefore it is possible to get a SP coded racquet in Hong Kong? I could be wrong thought...can someone clarify please?

    Ya, that's incorrect. SP stands for Singapore.

    The alphabets within the cone code, represents the country of distribution.

    No problem, glad to help. But still be on the lookout for other signs of a counterfeit racquet as well, since serial checking is not the surefire way to authenticate a racquet.

    no.. even the good one will cost them around $15-$20 (or maybe less?) to make
    they sold it here (in Indonesia) for around $25 but if you check online, I think if you buy it in bulk you can get it for $10? or $11

    this one is fake.. a lot of gifts are fake. maybe because they underestimate the price of a racket or they think they can get cheap item by going to certain online shop and get like 50% discount
    can't blame them. they want to give you a racket, however they don't know a thing about it.
