    This racket belongs to my friend..I'm not sure it was genuine VT-ZF, because the specification racket at 'cone' crosses the PBSI logo..

    well, to tell you the truth, I don't know
    the first time I see PBSI logo like that

    and I cannot verify the cone code and shaft serials if it is covered like that
    however if we assume that the cone code is 20012XSP (day 20, month 01 2012)
    then the number is more or less right

    So, what should I do to ensure the authenticity of the racket..?
    Should I release the sunrise hologram stciker to see hidden cone number?

    I just bought Yonex Voltric z-Force yesterday in Hong Kong at ESL Rackets & Sports megashop. I paid $1400 Hong Kong dollar for it. - shaft code: 3342318- cone code 1403?? Last couple of digits are hidden.- 4U, 19-26 lbs. This code is not touch the printed PBSI logo.- Sunrise sticker code: S3307741I hope my racket is genuine one:

    I thought I might chime in here: bought a pair of ZFLTD from MBS, and the PBSI shield does cross the stringing specs. To me it looks like the PBSI design was placed there before the engraving was done. In any case, your racquet looks genuine to me. The Sunrise serial should be at the bottom of the sticker and should not be holographic (at least that's the way it is on mine)...I don't have anything else to compare to since these racquets are the only SP racquets I own.

    I don't think you need to worry about yours. $1400 is normal HK price for VT-ZF if yours is limited edition (Olympic ltd) or you paid 100 sth more. So I think you are good.

    just want to be sure, why there are price different for yonex PBSI rackets and Japan or others yonex made rackets. here they sale most rackets are PBSI, but when i check the web it cost more than what is selling in my country without PBSI logo. Are our rackets sold here different grade, than japan or other countries, are there grade a clone or other grades?. and i know it is genuine but is there a grade to it?

    really confuse with price.

    Yonex dosent make clone or other grade. That the fake one. It being discuss here several time that JP version are meant for JP market. In Brunei, we are using the SP version. There is no grade for a genuine only quality control

    Other way to tell and its something noticed on the fake Voltric Z is the string pattern. When stringing mains (Vertical) the yonex pattern skips A7, A9 and A11. When you have a fake Voltric Z, you will find that the grommets are not drilled in their proper spot, they end up having to miss A8, A10 and A12 respectively. Hope this helps but I've found that this was a quick tell tale sign of a fake. I noticed this when stringing someone's fake racket and had to keep counting thinking I had missed a grommet or something......

    From the pics, everything checks out fine. The VTZF in question appears to be genuine.

    PBSI logo, butt cap, laser engraving, shrink wrap handle, and the barcode on the handle all look fine..

    Hi folks, i understand that the original VTZF is matte and not shiny/glossy. What about the VTZF LTD? Is it also matte finish? There's a used TW coded VTZF LTD that i'm looking at, but the shaft and cone seem to be glossy (from the pics). Is it a fake? (also there's no PBSI logo)

    Thank you :-)

    LTD is glossier, not matte.
