    Default Arcsaber 008 fake?

    I just bought this arcsaber 008 and some of my friends are saying it's weird or not real and I wanna know just in case! Thanks!

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    racket model: Yonex Arcsaber 008 (Or is this something else?)
    shaft serial: 6421376
    cone code : 230414CD
    source : "What's Your Racquet and Ski, Calgary Alberta Canada"
    price : $130 CAD
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    My friend's said it was fake cause of how it loooked and how it didn't say where it was made at the bottom of the handle. Here's a few pictures of it. I don't really know what to take pictures of, so I just took a few pictures of whatever I thought looked important:

    $130 CAD??? That's almost double what I paid for my 008 almost a year back! It may or may not be an original but it sure is a rip off! Or is it so that rackets are normally double the cost in Canada as compared to Germany??

    May be $10~$20. $130 CAD is about the regular sale price for ARC008 in CAN.

    Well here's the link of the website I bought it from. Its one the more reputed Badminton handlers in Germany.
    http://shop.badmintonversand.de/shop...oducts_id=2126

    Its price is given as 54.99 Euros which roughly translates to $72 CAD. Whats weird is that I paid 49.50 Euros for the same racket from the same shop last year in April!!! I guess the popularity of 008 just went up!!!

    Oh wow that's so much cheaper! But did you have to get it strung and stuff? Cause that costs more, and mine came pre-strung.

    I
    bought mine, arcsaber 008T (limited edition) around 2 years ago and cost me around 66 (104.6 CAD) including string NBS95

    the normal one should be cheaper..
    and now they have arcsaber 008DX.. (I really want this one lol..) and it will cost 72 with strings and grips ($114.1 CAD)
    yeah, it's still below your price..

    Yup, mine came pre strung as well! Although there still are some other websites where you can get it for the same cost with your choice of strings and tension!
