Is this Arcsaber 10 real or not?
I have recently bought an Arcsaber 10 for $50 and have no idea if it is fake or not. The codes seem real enough and laser engraved but it is missing the stickers on the side of the cone but I am not sure if that is enough to call it a counterfeit. The grip does have the yonex logo imprinted on it. The paint job is crisp and clear and the"O' compared to "0" is also fine. I have tried comparing it too multiple pictures on the web and I an't tell a difference. Can someone also tell me the difference between a the real butt of the racket compared to fakes. I have seen genuine matt finish and shiny finish. The color of it is the same as the nanospeed that i own. So... Can someone tell me whether it is genuine or not based in this info?

Oh and the code on the cone is: 010312CH
the shaft code is: 6088570

Slightly used but thats why i am asking. Probably fake, a really well done fake if it is, but I would like to make sure just for peace of mind.

50 dollars? Most likely a fake... Even if it is used, it usually goes for above 120

Guess I'll have to save up the hard way. But none the less, it definitely isn't that bad for a fake. It is even balanced and the length is correct and is much stiffer than th nanospeed that I own. But it was too good to be true. Thanks for helping!

$50 for a high end racket is a very big red warning that the racket is fake ($50 is still too low for second hand racket)
that's good if the racket has OK quality
that means you are lucky and got something nice
but for many people, they will have to deal with cheap fake racket
one time a person tried to sell me a racket (arcsaber 10 or AT900P if I'm not wrong) and he bend the racket like hell (I'm sure he didn't know arcsaber 10 and AT900P supposed to be a stiff racket)
