Hi, this is my first post on Badminton Central. I have been on here for about a year without an account looking at posts about all kinds of things.
I was wondering if anyone could help me at identifying a racket. I was thinking about buying it from a club member. It's a Voltric Z force but I don't know if its real or not because I have never held a Z force before. When he showed me the racket, it felt fake because of the matte finish (I have read about the quality of decals and paint being low on the z force). The serials (to me) look good, and you can barley see them unless you look very hard.
Extra info: He says that he got it brand new but does not come with the racket bag (this is why I'm suspicious).
Just my two bits worth, but upon closer inspection, picture 2 and 3 are of two different rackets. Picture #2 with racket on grey surface is a fake as the string pattern/grommets is not that of the Voltric Z Force. Hole A7 (top seventh hole from centre) should be a horizontal string but is not. If you zoom in on picture #3 of racket on wooden bench, you will see that the A7 grommet runs a horizontal cross string, which is the correct pattern for the Voltric ZF.
Why did you take picture of two different rackets for this exercise..? Very confusing... So yes, picture #2 fake racket, picture #3 real racket.
