    Why do you think it could be fake? Looks genuine to me.

    Well, firstly I´m not sure and I just thought to ask and.. the price was ~65£
    and secondly.. it feels different from the DK one I bought from the genuine store in DK.

    Maybe different string, tension, racquet-weight, grip, production-batch...
    65£ should be ok, i saw some old colour at700 available for less than 60 £ from a german store. Where did you get it from?

    Well, same grip, strings, tension and everything, just the GR one seems a bit lighter, oh well.. the problem might exist in the user end aka me ;D

    Could it be possible that the one you have is a 3U and you're comparing it to a 4U?

    Well, should have added that I´m not a newbie player =p and no I don´t have different size racquets, that´d be stupid :)
    But there was an information leak at some point so.. I thought perhaps there were some people here who would see the things I don´t, since.. I´m not that much concentrated on racquets ;d

    I too think it's genuine. Paintjob looks neat. Grommets seem to be the right ones, also fonts and text on it look real. The codes are pretty well lasered (at least if my eyes aren't deceiving me), and the overal racket looks genuine. I'd say 99% genuine.

    Matt's saying that it might be 3U and 4U you are comparing as racquet weights not racquet sizes.

    Yup, that's what I'm asking. What are the weight class rackets of those rackets being used for comparison?

    Different sized rackets for the same racket? = counterfeit!!

    It looks genuine to me... And euh the price... Over here in Belgium i'm about to buy the 900 or 700 and i looked it up... AT 700 available @ 100 €, that's about 65-68 £ so i don't think that's a problem.
