    Fake. It comes in a Nana bag. Rule of thumb is about 90% of ebay rackets are fake.

    True, but it's assuming the consumer/customer knows what they are buying, that goes without saying what the implications are ^.^ :D

    For that price plus s/h, you could buy a new th coded from sumai or tum on ebay. Sometime you can fine a real good used one on buy and sell forum. don't go cheap and try to save $20 and get cheated for $150.

    but after a check, careful one, it isn't too hard to pick them out as fakes... but hey, they are QUITE GOOD I mean in terms of faking the real ones... so buyers becareful... if buyer isn't like us who are all equipment freaks... will get tricked easily.. haha

    has someone even mentioned the serial codes? o_O...forgive me if i read it wrong though...besides the fact, it is true...if going for a racket, best to never buy from ebay at all...better to buy from a shop with warrenty :p
