    I doubt if it's a genuine racket as:

    1. The paint isn't great and fonts are weird.
    2. The grommets are not in consistent quality (if it's original)

    The grommets look funny because the racquet has been strung before. The grommets are worn out and need replacing. In other words: this is a used item. The model is a low-end model that certainly exists in northern Europe, and it looks like the racquet in the pictures. And we seldom (never) see fakes of low-end models, so my guess is that it is authentic, used, and probably not worth buying unless you get a really low price.

    In SE Asia, fake Carbonex are popular. You will see red Cab21, red Cab9Tour, Iso head Carbonex, ....etc tons of fakes in funny forms. ;)

    It just drove me crazy when I saw people in my gym have those.....
