    as far as i know , we can identify whether the VT racquet are genuine or not by the thickness of it shaft.. the genuine raquet has thinner shaft than other conventional raquets.

    Fake z force Physical characteristics

    My friend brought in a fake z force today, it was obviously a fake:

    I noticed straight away the shaft was way thicker than a normal votlric shaft (inc VT70/80 Zforce) The frame near the throat was also more thicker (not as aerodynamic).

    The paint job was good but still off, the grey bit near the throat was more a more prominant solid grey and because of the thicker frame it stuck out.

    The voltric signage on the inside of the top of the frame was not shiny (unlike real z force) and more of a dull grey, and it was also somewhat fuzzy (e.g. not printed clearly).

    To top it off, near the shared grommit, the racket had a small chunk of the frame missing on the inside.

    It was more of a mid flex than extra stiff.

    It played ok as a racket, but did not play like a genuine z force.
