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.

im a student actually staying in UK... so a nearest dealer is quite a distance away either by train or bus. That is the reason i thought of buying online... =)

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

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...
