    I sold my MX80 a month ago to someone on the forum. He just told me that my racket's fake. It was a 4U, TW-Coded racket that I bought off a reputable store in Singapore.

    Can any kind forumers help verify?

    Here's what the buyer told me about the racket:
    - felt lighter than his friend's 3U MX80
    - felt more vibration when hitting when compared to his friend's MX80
    - he's used it less than 3 times
    - his friend bought his 3U MX80 it from Chris in AMK

    I've attached pictures of the racket for verification. I'm generally peeved that my racket has been called a fake and want some closure.

    Thanks for reading.

    I'm quite familiar with the store owner so I got it at S$170.

    Coz I didn't buy it from him, so it won't be a nice thing to do :)

    What are some of the sure signs of identifying a fake Victor?

    I'm sure having 3 games and your personal 'feeling' can't count as legit reasons.

    maybe you can email Victor's regional distributor and give them the serial to examine the authentication of the racket just like Victor Ina (Indonesian Victor distributor) did in other thread....otherwise we have many experts here for assistance

    Yup, I've dropped the Singapore distributor an email, and hope that the experts here lend their wisdom to this issue.

    Just feel that it's unfair to ask for a refund a month after you bought a racket with claims that you feel that it's fake.
