    Default Yonex ArcSaber 10, Fake or Not? [PiCS]

    Since my last racket broke and I started searching for a new one, I somehow managed to find my way to this one sell&buy site in my country. A person who has thousands of positive feedbacks given is selling a Yonex ArcSaber 10 for 80 [EUROs], which in dollars is 107 USD. Im wondering, can this racket be a fake one? I searched multiple pictures of fake rackets from the internet and followed guides to spot a fake racket. Judging by the pictures, it looks real and legit.

    These are the pictures:

    It does look legit, doesnt it?

    Im just wondering whether the bag looks totally legit and the paper thing on the racket. I couldnt really find SO MANY matching pictures, many arcsabers had that different bag and paper on them before taking it off from the racket.

    So whats your opinion guys?


    Thanks in advance guys!

    A "JP" racquet doesn't have JP on the shaft. Secondly a JP racquet doesn't come with the ArcSaber bag but a universal black soft cloth bag:
    And thirdly the letter O on the plastic wrap is the wrong font by the looks of it (too round). Interestingly the serial seems plausible again (maybe from Maylam99? There's a reason those auctions are private )). The font of the black sticker on the plastic wrap is incorrect as well and I don't think the plastic bag is the proper one either ...

    Thanks for the tips guys! This was very useful since I wasnt sure whether it was a fake. I kind of had my own suspicions aswell but I couldnt prove them really.

    great! Now I know that its a fake and Ill start looking for a more expensive one and a legit one.

    From 3rd picture ... you can see that the YONEX logo is not in the middle of the joint.

    i bought a racket and am wondering if it is fake as well
    it had the same packaging over the grip with the bar code.
    as well as the JP ending the cone code
    check for the alignment of the words to the right of the arcsaber 10 logo on the shaft

    hope that helps!

    and how did you upload photos to your post?

    This is definitely a counterfeit...a few clues (there could be more)
    -JP coded racket...with Chinese product tags...pamphlet etc
    -JP coded racket should come with the cloth bag
    -JP coded rackets do NOT have JP on the shaft
    -font seems off...too much spacing in between each number...could be just the angle
    -the sticker on the handle...the font looks different
    -look at the t-joint, the symbol seems off centered...

    what if the serial code is legitimate? Still a fake racket?

    nothing. there is no extra writing on the shaft.

    only SP and CH rackets have extra "SP" and "CH".

    those are just check items. even if it passes all check, it can still be a fake. but if it fails one, then it is for sure a fake.

    a $107 ARC10 is a bit on the high side, but still too low.

    Just to clarify, it's on the gripsize/weight sticker, on the cone. It's called the "SG" mark (it has nothing to do with Singapore though)

    Always thought that one day, counterfeit rackets would come with serial/date codes that actually make sense. Like the others have said...having a legitimate serial/date code only means that its passed 1 of the many indicators for genuine rackets.
