    5 sets for £15, seems too good to be true? BG65ti and BG66. I thought it was quite a good price, but the seller also sells clone racquets* and that set my spidey sense tingling. I can take it or leave it, I just thought I might try some other strings at that price.


    *And dodgy cheap electrical goods with faulty wires according to the feedback.

    The strings will definitely be fake. When i first started stringing i brought packets from several sellers at less than £5 a pack and they were clearly fake when compared to genuine. The fonts on the packets will not be as sharp and often i found the barcode on the back had the wrong colour on it. The strings awful too.

    Thanks chaps.
    I'd probably rather have a second reel of rkep anyway.

    Sam, I think I know which seller you're actually talking about, and I purchased from him before and they are definitely fake

    The tell-tale signs of it being fake are actually present in the pictures he supplies, but he insisted to me they were real until I asked what would happen if i wanted a refund if I found out they were fakes!

    I've been looking at these too! As usual, if it seems too good to be true... Think I might have to put in another MBS order instead :)

    I don't think I need to ask a mod if I can put a link here. Just be wary of buying exactly 5 packs at once. If I wasn't in my phone I'd quote the Monty python holy hand grenade sketch about counting to exactly 3.

    ^ That was one guy i brought from who was selling fake string and also innaybrandnoo2012 or something like that. I did leave negative feedback but ebay removed it! If i remember correctly both had plenty of good feedback for their string but when i recieved it was clearly fake.
