Looks like a mint older model, or is it a newer version?

Does it have bumperguard? Honestly it does look like a fake to me. I have never seen a 1-stripe like that.

I have an one strip, but it didn't have the print "Graphite" on the bridge...

correct. Not only that, the "Prince" is printed in green, not in golden color. I suspect this one is a fake.

It looks like my hitting partners POG Pro, but that would be a 15 year old racquet. That one looks a little too good to have that kind of age on it.

Where is the PRINCE printed in green? I just see PRINCE printed in gold, as usual.

flea bay item 230369151435.
"Prince" is green.
Only starting the 4-stripes the color becomes golden. Before that it is always green.

I think he is referring to the original one stripe which has "Prince" and "Graphite" printed in green. Also, no where does the word "oversize" appear on the original.

This is not a fake - it's from a reputable Japanese seller.

There is another Japanese site I found which was selling a couple of the exact same model second hand (now sold). On this site they weigh the racquets and list the actual weight. These two were 337 and 338 grams respectively strung. They also had one with green Prince writing which was 346 unstrung. I wonder if this one was a lighter version for the Japanese market?

Doesn't look fake to me. An older fellow I play with sometimes has 2 of those rackets. Ive never taken a very close look at it but this one looks just like it. His has the 1 green stripe and gold prince.

it has the TW-issued POG LB pj on a POG OS. i wonder if this is a new ongoing pj for the Graphite. maybe just overseas? the "tour" monicker has been around for a while now.

If you know the seller is legit then why don't you ask him, instead of asking here. Very few here really know the rackets made/sold in Japan. I can only assure you that based on what I have seen this one has never been sold in China/US. That much I can say. Maybe only sold in Japan. Again, why don't you ask the seller.
