Thanks.<p>Did you buying the 500 from a sporting goods store? Was it used or new? If new, was the price similar to what other retailers charge?<br>It's hard to tell from logos/markings cause they can be faked as well. Go into a store and compare the balance/weight/paint-job.<p>MCL

    You pointed out the "fakeness" of the racquet yourself monster. The Arcsaber series did not come out in 2005.

    Owh alright i dont really know the timeline of the product because all i know its just Arcsaber, i just want to own my self a really good yonex racquet but after reading lots of fake products in the market, it really scares me somehow if i would consider buying it online ... Thanks for pointing out. I think the best is going to a yonex authorised dealer one day...

    Thanks and sorry for the stupid questions ive asked... =) Cheers

    In my opinion, why buy online when there are so many racket shops in Asian countries such as Malaysia.

    almost all ebay yonex sellers are fake.
    go read it up on this forum, tons of people have posted discussion since year 2000.

    There should be online stores in the UK as well. I'm sure you can find them in other subforums here at BCF.

    I think i have to agree with you cooler... id only found out about fake yonex racquet after joining this forum reading most of the discussion. I've never owned a Yonex racquet and after trying out my friends yonex carbonex which is the stiff racquet and i start to like it rather than my current which is the flex type.

    Yeah actually ive browsed through the buy and sell section here, i dont think i'll be going back to ebay anymore too risky, btw thanks for all your advice here =) appreciate it...

    Its not a good idea to buy from ebay unless you do your homework. There are sellers that sell genuine rackets but its always better to buy it from a good reputable store to avoid any hassles.

    buying from BF sellers is alot safer than ebay.
    the cheapest racket is the one that fit your need.
