Hi guys, would love you oppinions of this racket and if its legit.
I can get it for 1300 SEK (~200USD) and its used only once (according to the seller) Seems to be a fairly good price if its the real deal but not in the mood to get a realy expensive copy. Here are some photos i got from the seller.
Thx in advance

can everyone specify, instead of leaving out, the two most important pieces of information?
- where you bought it from?
- how much?

According to the seller he bought it on a trip to Hong-Kong about 1 month ago.
He wants to sell it for ~200 USD (1300 Swedish kronor). What he paid i dont know

The number combination of the shaft and cone code is possible, then it would be 211202SP. Pictures look alright as well. Price is probably 20 euro more than what he paid depending on where exactly and it is used and you have no warranty but you save on shipping cost ...

Agree with demolidor, the shaft serial & cone code checks out. Seems genuine.
However, i'm a nitpicker. Noticed a difference with the paint job, typeface alignment at the shaft. The wording, Voltric 80, has alot of whites below VOLTRIC. This is in comparison with a genuine piece that is with me now. Also, the color of '80' numbering should be in champagne gold, however this cannot be concluded from photos. Pic below for comparison.

kenee: is that a SP version?
Looking at the photos in this thread
It looks like its more white on that one aswel. Not 100% sure but maybe some small diferences in the paintjobs for SP and none-SP, i will post some better pictures once i get the racket

please check mine too
Sir I bought it from an unusual source as they were giving it to me at very low cost and that has no PBSI mark or any Sunrise hologram..It has only Yonex hologram...
Shaft no. 7654500
Cone code: 201202JP
And it looks like a new and original (might be) and same as all pictures got from internet..
Have doubt please help me to clear this...
If needed then I can post some pictures of this racquet...
