With a clone ( Winex, Apacs, etc etc ) or a genuine Yonex, you can be sure that chacteristics of one type of racket are replicated into the next ie One 3U Arc10 feels the same as another 3U Arc10.
And if it doesn't matter if it's a fake, then does it matter what brand it is as long as it feel good in your hands?
As said when you first asked questions about ebay, if you don't want Yonex price, then buy another brand. If you want the Yonex look, without the Yonex price then buy a clone.
Why pay for a Yonex look, with a clone price, without the standards? Unless the words Yonex painted on the racket matter that much.

It's difficult to know. The next time you change the grip, look at the original grip. It should have arrows/Yonex pattern.
Here is a link to the guide I wrote. Self promotion =p

The orginial grips of some latest rackets (e.g. Arcsaber 10) have yonex logo pattern. Fakes have the plain red grip. - oh it's a thing i easily can check. where should it be, on which side?
So, ask the seller regarding the authenticity of their rackets - if is it enough that seller should reply about authenticity at the web-page?

I am not sure about other countries, but I have not seen anyone who sell fakes in Australia (ebay.com.au) described their rackets as "Genuine", but mostly as "Brand New" and "Made in Japan OEM".
The link you provided shows very clearly it is fake. The moment you see tags hanging from the racket frame, that should give a big warning sign. I think all rackets now come with a logo with the size of the stringbed strapped around the frame by means of an elastic string.
The original mini-bag is just another give-away. Can't top laughning when I saw the bag. Have you seen the original Arc10 bag? It's shape is like a boomerang, which of course is specially designed for the Arcsaber Line. ("Arc" & "Saber"). The design of the original is also much better, not to mention the bag should be made of canvas. (Not applicable to other models though, only Arcsabers). Most fake sellers have their bags designed exactly the same way as the orginials minus the canvas. This one fails so bad
The grip does not have Yonex pattern. The price is too good to be true.
That sums it up pretty much.
Anyway, if it suits your play and style, then that is all it matters. I used to buy clones years ago as they are more affordable. However, when I decided to buy multiple rackets of the same model (as I play more frequently and so willing to invest more $$), Yonex have more reproducible rackets i.e. same feel and weight (quality control). Try buying 4 clones. If you are lucky, or unlucky depending how you look at it, some of them may feel different from the others. It is better for you to buy clones than fakes. Why? I think it is more "morally-right". On the other hand, it is still "morally-wrong".
I just realised it is getting out of point. Regardless, I hope this helps.

I think this thread is great but I can't understand why we don't have a sort of blacklist for sellers that have sold fakes? If we made a list, surely it would make it easier for people to find out if their seller had sold fakes before and would save repetitive questions.

The best thing to do, is for people should know what they are getting into before buying. If they end up with a counterfeit, it is their fault for failing to understand what they are purchasing.

Can someone help me figure out if this is a legit racquet?
Also, since this is a CH model, would it be as good in quality as a JP or SP?
Thank you in advance.
