    The lettering of the "ISOMETRIC SLIM HEAD" decal is far too big, too.

    1. The serial number looks way too low for the date of manufacture (Oct 15, 2009)
    2. Both the serial number and cone code look stamped instead of lazer etched. Lazer etching gives a much neater and smaller number.
    3. The price is 1/3 what they retail for.

    I think he had a valid question. all you stated in the first reply was that it was fake with no explanation of why. Even if all you said was "I have a real one and it looks different" would have been sufficient.

    Its a fake, sorry mate :mad: Some decal wording are the wrong size, wrong font, doesnt look like the serial has been lazer etched and the SN looks to low.

    A lot of these are sold on ebay with the pretence of being 'a clone made in the same factory' or a 'different grade'. No such thing, all a lie to sell fake junk that will not perform like the real racket.
