from the engraved serial, it looks genuine but that alone can not be used to determine its authenticity

The arc 10 comes in orange grip?

Grip should be red but I guess it is the white balance of the camera that shows it as orangey ?

Hi Johnny P,
I not a good person to judge your racket..but seem abit weird. First is the SP(Singapore), meaning it is for asia/asian region distribution. How come it reach to your region?
Also i'm doubt about the manufacturing number, it seem unlogical numbers. As you can see, mine is an Carbonex 21SP bought in Malaysia.. that why it is an SP version. Futhermore, research on the year of the model. For example, ArcSaber i think it is an 2007/2008 racquet models. Mines is carbonex series started in early as mid 80's i think. But still, carbonex series are still the favourites, therefore YONEX keep making them. I bougt my carbonex about 3 weeks ago(26/09/2008).
Mine is 080785SP - year 08 month 07 batch no. 85 = 080785SP
Your seem to be over dated i think. As i said, maybe i'm wrong. Refer to other members here. They surely handy to help.

That is a misguided reading of the distribution code. The first two numbers are the day, followed by the month, and then the year after 2000, along with a random number that may not have a defined purpose or real significance to us. The codes look fine.

His codes do look fine though. It's hard to tell from the pictures if they are real or fake.
For your Carbonex, it's Manufactured on the 8th of July 2008. For the SP region (Asean region for Sunrise) and it's a pretty sweet deal for you! you just got yourself a 2 month old racket!! Straight off the manufacturing plants and not kept in some warehouse..

Btw, to address your doubts Johnny, it's not 1p, but IP. IP = distributed in indonesia

I agree with Smichz. No doubt! Just play focus on your game, don't bother about the genuinity issue anymore.
Yes my Carbonex is so fresh when i bought, still got the that fresh smell.
But now only got my hand smelly smell at the grip.
BTW, CAB21SP is good racket! For 'old-school' fellow who like classical touch with that metallic hitting sound.
