Did the seller give you a receipt from where he got it?
07-18-2013, 02:44 PM #4
No he got it from his friend is the only thing he said, is it fake? The balance point is right at the Z.

With stock grip and strings, the BP should be around 315-320mm. I've not seen or heard of many CD coded fakes, but you'll have to wait for some of the code monkeys to verify!

Seems right it was made on the 5th of march 2012 and everything looks good.

Thanks for your insight though, the flex is really stiff btw and I tried twisting the head but couldnt do much so I'm guessing it has the built in T joint.

racquet looks good to me.
code is within range for authentic racquet.

All and all genuine. The butt cap, engraving, rainbow authetication sticker, decals and "soft tribal paint" and codes all seems to be good.
Also, you should take the pics in better lighting so we can see the color of the butt cap and the rainbow authentication sticker better...
Also I have yet to see a fake CD racket as well...
Mostly are JP, SP, CP, CH, TH fakes you find online.

CD coded VTZF doesn't have the PBSI logo or something?
07-29-2013, 06:21 PM #12
Only the SP coded rackets have the SP on the shaft and PBSI logo on the cone. WITH EXCEPTION OF THE SP-coded Voltric Z-Force 88 Ltd Edition, which does not any neither markings.
All the CD, US, UK, GR, TW etc do not have any coded designation marking on the shaft nor PBSI logo etched on the cone.

Okay, thanks! Now I know

cant see the code clearly. is it laser engrave?
07-29-2013, 07:10 PM #15
Because it is hard to see, it is laser engraved since the cone is white with deep engravings.
A good way to see laser engraving on the cone and shaft on a VTZF is to take a pencil and scribble over the code area
Also since it is CD racket, with all the right butt cap, logos, paint quality etc, the racket is already said to be authentic

I seen this in http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...First!/page942 racket model: Yonex VOLTRIX Z-FORCE
shaft serial: 3676337
cone code : 060822SP racket made in 6 august 2012 but the shaft serial is high. is it fake?

The Voltrix is probably the typo. But the shaft and cone codes looks okay. Also the 580 RM sounds reasonable as well.
But to be sure, we would need to see some pics determining the engraving, the soft tribal paint, the decal quality, the font quality, cone quality, shrink wrap on handle, Yonex Rainbow authenticity sticker, butt cap color and clarity, grommet quality as well as grommet alignments, original Voltric grip, measurement of the shaft in diameter.
Lol I probably over exaggerated, but over the internet, with all the above information, you could probbaly guarantee you have a Genuine VTZF
