    actually, the first picture gave it away. the paint job was the culprit. in the second 0 of the "800", the paint should be half red, half orange, unlike the fully orange in counterfeit 800s.

    That must be a very good fake i must say. The sunrise sticker and the cone plastic is so real.

    nah, there are much better fakes out there. the PBSI sticker error is way too obvious.

    Think about the details how to determine a counterfeit and genuine racket. Your answer will be found there.
