    Are you 100% sure? I also noticed after a few good hits with it, the yonex logo on the strings started to fade away quickly, by the end of the game, there wasn't a logo anymore

    stencil will not gonna last forever (it is just a string with ink on it..). and high end racket does not come with string. usually your seller will string it for you (some do it for free and usually with set it at 20-23lbs). they will also be the one who do the stencil / logo for you
    so it is not Yonex's fault if the logo on your string fade. it will always gonna be like that

    *I never asked my stringer to put logo on my string. it will make the string dull

    actually this is not true

    European territories of high end Yonex distribution coded rackets (such as UK, FR, GR, etc) all come pre strung with BG-65Ti at about 20-22 lbs and stenciled.

    because the factory strings are the BG-65Ti, expect the stencil to fade away quicker due to the Ti coating

    the stencil will last longer if it was spray on BG-66UM or other non slip textured strings

    I lived in the UK before, and as far as I know, ALL of the website that I saw offering free restringing. that is such a pity that Yonex wasted a lot of money on restringing their racket.. maybe another member can verify if Yonex really strung their high end racket in Europe.

    maybe you misread what I wrote: only low end type racket (such as nanoray 20, or arcsaber 002) that usually is pre-strung
    all of high end racket such as arcsaber 10, VT80 will come without string.
    Yonex will not gonna waste their money on string since they know almost all high end racket buyers will gonna cut it straight away and upgrade it with better string and with their tightness preferences (better player will see 20-22lbs is really low esp when the racket has been there for months even years.)

    and I am saying "it will not last forever" which means someday, soon or later it will gone (in PeterGade99's case, it is sooner).
    if the buyer played with it straight away without waiting for the ink to dry, then the chance of the ink fade away is really big

    I bought a few UK coded rackets from eBay and got it shipped to Canada due to being sold cheap.

    NR700RP, VT80 as well as the VTZF

    all three came prestrung with BG65Ti and stenciled with red YY logo.

    though I am not sure if the older rackets were prestrung cine the three rackets I bought were release of recently.

    just curious, how do you know the rackets were pre-strung but not by the sellers?

    I do not know. But most stringers will not go the extra mile to stencil your racket except if you are sponsored.

    also according to Paul Steward review of the VFZF, it also came prestrung
    (At first I thought Ingot a fake UK coded VTZF lol)

    All UK High End rackets come pre-strung, if you purchase from any website such as directsportseshop or tennis nuts, you'll see it says the rackets already come pre-strung, you can either get a custom restring or £12 off etc.

    This is just what happens in the UK, not sure about the whole of Europe but for Asian countries they come unstrung

    This is probably due to there being more players of higher standards in these countries which would never play with the 20-22lbs factory string and would get it restrung with their string and tension etc.

    Whereas in the UK when players buy them, a lot of them buy them because they want a high end racket and would use the strings already on them

    Exactly. And it applies to certain other European territories as well. All of the ones I own that has an European distribution code comes prestrung with BG-65Ti

    and yes, in Asian and North American territories, all Yonex high end rackets comes unstrung.

    hell, the last time I bought from directsportseshop, they didn't even give the £12 coupon option. so it is much more rational to get the stringing service.
    maybe it changed over time

    it is kinda funny that UK players want to have their high end racket with string in it.
    it means:
    string on a racket meaning the racket needs to hold the tension even before they are being played, for months even years. which means it will weaken the grommet.
    when being left for months, 20-22lbs will go down to 16-18lbs.. which is really bad considering they are paying for high end racket. plus it makes them looks quite clueless even thought they buy a high end racket, they still cannot find the right tension for them

    of course, all of the above might be wrong if actually the seller is responsible for your factory string. that means Yonex will supply the BG65Ti, and then when the buyer opted for factory string, the seller will string it for you

    because in the directsportseshop, they said it is either use factory string OR get £12 voucher. I am still not sure why I cannot get the £12 voucher if I choose factory string

    I will inquire about this to directsportseshop now
