    Exclamation Fake Yonex Arc ZSTH (JP coded)?

    Hi all,

    Need further confirmation on the authenticity of this Jp Coded Yonex Arcsaber Z Slash (TH)
    that I bought earlier today from a fellow bcer at SGD180 (The price has more or less suggested its authenticity). I've uploaded a couple of pictures.

    From the pictures, the buttcap looks kinda weird to me. The original red grip as well, the aarow on the grip seems to be larger than normal. Lastly, I'm not sure if this racket has started it's production on the 28th of Oct 2009 (As suggested by the cone serial) since it was released in April 2010 or so. Needs help to clarify/confirm my doubt. Thanks.

    P.S: I've posted my shaft and cone serials on the check your serial thread. But decided to upload a couple pictures to help in the verification. Sincerely apologise on posting twice.

    Just to clarify on the shaft and cone serials as the picture is a little blur.

    Shaft serial: 8785769
    Cone serial: 281093JP

    Hey there I had a look at your racket and it does look somewhat weird. Does the shaft at the end of the Arcsaber Z slash logo have the words Taufik Hidayat on it (picture 3 - can't quite make it out)? Anyway, I can take the same pictures you've taken on my ARCZTH tonight so you can do a proper inspection along with the code verifications.

    SGD180 is not even enough to buy a SP coded ZSTH, too good to be true for that price for a JP coded ZSTH.

    Could you upload other side of the cone that showing the specs?

    A very good point which you are totally correct about. The serial and cone code used were quite normal for the regular version fakes but now that you mention it are totally incorrect for this version. Production only started in May 2010 and only released end of July/ August ...

    Hi,

    Arsnic: Yes there is. Basically ive compared the frame to images I can find online it kinda seem identical. But the aarow printed on the grip seem somewhat larger.

    Night kid: Yes I did mention that the price is what convinced me the most that it'd highly fake and that's why I need advise around here.

    Avenger: There is no racket bag that comes along. I thought Jp coded rackets are suppose to come with the cloth bag.

    Its my mistake as I did not check properly on the serial and assume that it's sp coded as I was rushing for time. It was only after the deal that I realize it's Jp coded.

    Whats the texture of the grip like? Usually the quality of the PU grip can give the racket away very easily. Just my 2cent.

    The texture of the grip is fine but the arrows on the grip seems much larger than it should be. But anyway the codes have already proven it's authenticity. Thanks for all the prompt reply.

    The bcer id is PaShuttler1980. So just a gentle reminder to all those dealing with him. Per his friend iffara, he will be dealing his arc10pg to someone else tonight so hopefully that guy did not fall into the same situation like I did.

    This is an interesting "questionable" Yonex racquet seeing that it even came with the cloth bag and grip band (the rubber thing at the bottom of the plastic cone) which are exclusive JP racquet features. Is it 3UG5 by the way?

    One last thing for you to do is to strip the handle of the plastic and leather grip all the way down to the wood. Lets see if it has the Yonex specification and barcode sticker on the wood.

    Yes, it's 3ug5. But the codes are basically the most important evidence to it's authenticity. Has been verified fake.

    The barcode on the wood of the racket, is also very important to determine the rackets authenticity. That is your last chance to determine wheter or not the racket is legit. Personnally I think that the cone codes and serial is too early for when this racket came on to the Market.

    The cone code already tells the whole story, nothing else even needs to be checked. This limited series was far from being in production at the time of the cone code ...
    Still, it would be interesting to see further details on this fake although I would leave it as is and get me money back (from the local seller, email address and hp number available in the buy & sell section ).
