    I don't think I've ever seen a fake Victor. That being said if you have access to the same model racquet you are buying then bring it and compare. Bear in mind that Victor has two factories, China and Taiwan and there are small differences in the product between the two.

    lol i think so too, i asked the seller whether it's genuine (subtly) but there's still no answer from him. one way of knowing whether a Victor racket is genuine is by looking at the butt cap. 1st batch is black and bulging, 2nd batch onwards is blue and flat.

    For yonex can check the serial no. but victor, im not sure.

    Worse come to worst, feel and remember the logos and marking on the racquet in the store before meeting the guy. Some design can only me done with expensive machine hence, u might able to spot a slight difference with the fake one.

    Normally they can fake the design and paint.. but the material is not.

    I have seen and feel the fake A900P before. When you hold it, you can feel it is different with the orig. the orig is more heavier, the head is oso heavier, and on the shaft it printed "power" but the fake one appeared as "amortec" instead.

    hope this help abit

    My Victor Bravesword 08 did have a serial number and country code. You just have to find someone who can distinguish between the fake and real racket.

    If it says WICTOR on the shaft, it's a fake.

    40 Pounds is about 1910 Taiwan Dollar. I got mine from Taiwan last year for 2400. It's really kind of low. Look at the 2nd picture from the bottom, if it is faked, they even fake the genuine certificate label from some kind Chinese product control assocation. :)

    维克多都是一些低档拍子为主。应该不会有假货的波。
