    if you open a new thread, you need to include pictures in it, esp with LTD version, there is no way for us to verify it without picts

    Why do you think it's fake?

    What I usually look for is if the code is engraved, if the date of the cone code makes sense with when the racket came out, hologram, and most importantly the actual characteristics of the racket like the stiffness, headweight, and if that's in line with the original it's based on. Ask someone to try it or you try someone else's to compare.

    If clones bothered to make headheavy stiff rackets, I wouldn't bother using Yonex or Victor and so that's the main way you could determine a real one from a good fake. (Durability isn't really an issue because Apacs has 4U clone rackets that can withstand 30 lbs. tension for <$50US).

    But the prob is the racket not with me. I buy from a seller at SGD290 but i need to ensure it's genuine. Since we haven't deal yet. So i think i should get more opinions from others professional to verify for me.
