    from a non owner of a yonex racket i think it looks quite legit. The serial code looks ok, and theirs no stickers on the serial codes so.... Don't take all of my advice though you might want to ask someone a bit more experienced int his matter

    I didnt know that JP coded rackets have 'JP' imprinted on the shaft

    But I see a Chinese warranty card/manual in your photos?

    First check if the serial code is legit by going to the " post YOUR yonex serial numbers here - read post#1 first!" and check if your serial number and cone number is lasered and not ENGRAVED. And by the looks of where the cone connects to the shaft, it doesn't look smooth in which it should be. Can you post a picture of that?? To me, it looks fake and for that price?? I doubt it. Ask yourself if you would sell a new genuine arc10 for 100$? If you say no, why would he?

    It's a fake. JP racquets don't have "JP" on the shaft, and the sticker for 3UG5(?) should be laser engraved, as newer racquets should be.

    fakey fakey.

    don't buy.

    All yonex genuine racquets don't have such a tag hanging at the frame.

    sweating ...... those chinese and taiwanese really good in making fakey.

    True, the part in which the shaft connects to the cone made it look fake but i thought maybe it's just dust cause he said he din't use it for 2month. Im not sure if the serial number is engraved or laserd. He said it was bought in hk from the yonex store and it came with the manual and everything you see on the first pic.

    it is definitely a fake.

    1) the serials are all wrong, the shaft code should be much higher for a racquet produced in Nov 2008.
    2) JP racquets shouldn't have JP printed on the shaft, only SP racquets have that. (i wonder why that is though?)

    Well if they can make fake rackets they can make fake manuels aswell( much easier then a racket ) And look at the second and third picture (at where I was talking about) the pace where the cone connects to the shaft should be smooth and red, but it's white not matching the racket.

    its definitly fake. Even if everyone's said it i'm still gonna back it up. I've seen a fake Arc10 before, and the paint is the exact same colour as this. Its not shiny or darker red. And its got a sticker thing... my weight and grip size is laser engraved.

    Is the weight and grip size lasered on only the arc10 & 9? I would think so because they are the only ones made in 2008? My at700 2007 doesn't have it laser engraved...

    It's racquets made around the second half of 2008.
