    Arrow ?sumai03?

    I recieved an AT700 from sumai03 a couple of days ago. But I have little suspicion on it.

    The serial/distribution code is printed

    The 4UG5 sticker, the "~" is abit to close to the numbers

    The X on the word YONEX doesn't look neat

    Looks fine to me. Sumai is also one of the reputable sellers on Ebay.

    Yes I have heard of sumai03's reputation. But I always thought the codes were laser engraved.

    Looks engraved to me. Also please keep in mind the fit and finish of TH coded rackets is not always perfect. Performance-wise I don't feel there's much, if any difference but cosmetically I've consistently found slight flaws or inconsistencies...

    ...it's nothing to worry about.

    Based on if this is authentic or not. Also, the Serial/distribution code is printed.

    How do you mean "printed"? In your picture it looks like it's etched. Can you take a better picture or explain more in detail?

    Your picture doesn't clearly show a difference because that's what I have experienced with TH rackets. In fact the 8400 looks more suspect.

    Find another TH coded racket from one of your friends and see if it's the same or contact Sumai03 and see what he has to say.

    I think your TH racket is fine.

    In fact, I have a great idea: go to your local authorized Yonex Dealer and see if their racket has the same etching. If so, you're all set. If not, then you can: you like.

    Both rackets are laser engraved, noting to worry about. The lower end, the style looks a bit different but nothing to be converned about.

    However, if you want to see a difference between a counterfeit racket what their engrave looks like, have a look at these two for example.
