    just bought a new 'old' model voltric Z force today, need help verify:

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex Voltric Z Force
    shaft serial: 6059957
    cone code : 160412SP
    source : small local shop, Penang, Malaysia
    price : US$ 57 (plus string and grip), without is USD$ 40
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    With the price, I suspect is a fake, tho I really hope it's not, or either it's an old model so they sell it cheap. Thank you

    Avenger is this 2001 or 2011 :0 sorry a bit confused... Yeah the price is too good to be true and if it's 2001 it's fake for sure but wait for someone better then me to confirm like shinichi or avengerrrrrr

    this is why cone code is important. there is no such thing as Voltric range in 2001. if it is 2001, then it is fake
    if it is 2011, then it is also fake since the shaft serial is too low for 2011 production
    it is a fake racket (as you know from the price)

    Thank you Exert & Avenger....

    it's really disappointing, but I guess I can be relieve that I did not pay premium price for a fake, still, some money is wasted...*frustrated*.... Before this, I was looking at 'Gosen roots aermet 2800' , it was locked inside a glass cabinet, (that's in another store) and I guess that one is the real deal, cost about USD 90.

    well, I walked into the store and told him that I was looking for a badminton racket, and he told me the good ones are at the back....damn! the laser engraving and paint job looks so convincing. No point asking for a refund with this kind of small shop, once money change hand, don't even think about it, unless you want to get into a shouting match or a fist fight. lesson learned... ask for reputable shop recommendation in the forum then buy.
