sorry but how do you read the date for 2010 since the Y is only one digit

I would also like to know what the serial number should be for 2010 produced rackets, since my friend got a Arcsaber 8DX and the code is 170202TW and the front page says 0 is fake...

I got an Armortec 300 at badminton alley, not sure whether or not it is real. It seems real in every aspect except that when I asked the stringer to string it at 24 pounds, she seemed unsure and told me that the higher the tension, the lower the power and made me string it at 23. What do you guys think

It is true, however, the higher the tension, the lower the power.
I'm wondering if the older rackets follow the same guide lines for spotting a fake. I was never in any doubt, that my old Aerotus 65 was authentic, but I don't see any serial # on the shaft and the serial # is only a 5 digit number. I purchased this racket in the early 90's - probably '91, or '92. Despite being that old having been played with countless times, it's still in very good shape. All the graphics and lettering are still very clear and nice looking. My wife has this old racket that she bought in the Philippines and it was supposed to be a Yonex Ti8, but I thought it was curious, that her racket is only half as old as the Aerotus 65, but 95% or the graphics and writing is gone. You can still see some faded stuff on it, but nothing legible. That and the suspicious 3 digit "SP" serial number have me figuring it's a fake. I really think the Aerotus is authentic, though.

Can some kind souls enlighten me?
In the weekend, I bought 1 pcs of AT700 Old Color, which I spotted and bought as these days it's rare to see a old color AT700 retailing in the shop. The retails shop which I bought from is definitely a legit shop in S'pore and the owner told me that this AT700 has no distribution code and these rackets are meant for player (which I guess national players). It also has the standard Singapore distributor's label covering the cone serial no.
When I take a swing at the new racket (not played in the court yet), I could feel that it is more heavier than the IP one I got. Hope someone can give me a clue.

have fun in ur baddy and dont dance to the fakeness of ur racket u just bought...
u will be much happy to enjoy ur baddy that way...

agreed, but when we pay a lot for a racket, we must be expecting genuine racket as we pay with 'genuine' amount of money. somehow we must check the genuineness of our racket and take further action so the fake retailer wont cheating around freely, unchecked.
plus, when we want to sell our used racket in the future, we know that we are selling genuine stuff (thus higher price we can get)..

When he said there is no distribution code. You need to ask to pill off the sticker to verify the cone code. If the racquet has SP painted on the shaft with any other distribution code. Then it has a problem. Even if it for national player, it has distribution code.
Check if the racquet is 3U. You might be used to 4U already and feel the racquet is heavier. Or may be the string is different.

Many manufacturers will do very realistic fake, you say they can do not distinguish between these, then how to do it?

Hi guys, I recently bought a ArmorTec 900 Power Lee Chong Wei model from datawan Pahlawan in malacca. I bought it at RM259 but after A while I noticed some very small dots of black paint on the bright orange finish near the built in T-joint. Serials are laser engraved but stickers are peeling off. There is also smell of paint near the head, particularly at the black paint finish.It also carry a SP code. It's a 3UG4, 19 to 24 lbs. I highly suspect this racket to be a fake, but still not quite sure as this is my first time paying that much for a racket. Someone please enlighten me!
