    To me, the paint job looks somehow different. And in my opinion, i think this is a fake but i might be wrong though..:)

    I communicated with the seller and ask for sample serial numbers, he got mad and started insulting me... :p Still cannot provide me with serial numbers!

    Anyway, fake rackets are very prevalent here in the Philippines!

    i recall one time when my aunt&cousin borrowed my overrun A-300 for a playing spree at marikina.. accidentally collide with her doubles playmate.. weve noticed that its not merely hollow but there are some thread or i think vibration-proof material inside the racket.. same as my neighbors originalMP99 was broken this april., in my own opinion Original and Overrun have same materials although it dey differ in paint finish just like buying smuggled Guess jeans and Girbaud @ greenhils same material but packaging is different.. and overun can hold up @ tension 28 w/ my titanium strings, same on my original A-300,, dats y i badly need a Armortec300 overrun for my practice games.and doubles game.,, i use my orig only on tournaments, i dont want it to be broken by my doubles-partner lng noh.:rolleyes: ..

    hey dude u have mentiond about the site that sells overrun rackets? do they have Armortec300?? may i know where is the site? coz i bought my racket to our PRO trainor bfore wen i was playing at makati..but i cant contact him any more and havnt seen her for some time.. thnx dude:cool:
