    It's not worth it to buy a fake racket. The grommets are terrible, the feel is bad, there is no warranty, and usually it has no utility, unless you have a reason to show off the cool racket to your friends while secretly suffering while playing.

    I'd say it's WORTH to buy less-famous brand racket for $50 instead of buying fake rackets. Apacs, karakal, wilson, dunlop, hart, astec, flypower, kason, oliver, joobong, etc..etc... but still are 100% authentic. it's already less worthy enough to buy low-end rackets from yonex/lining/victor although they are claimed to be 100% original made in China but passed QC, nevertheless fake ones.

    I highly doubt a fake FB would play anything close to the real thing. The real thing is a very light racket at ~73 grams. I can't see the fake meeting that specification, at which point you're dealing with a totally different racket.

    If you're after an Arcsaber, there are ones in the Arcsaber range that should be in your price range; I believe the 002 should be affordable. But even then, you might be able to do better as arfandy has suggested by exploring other brands.

    For cheaper alternative that looks like Arcsaber FB you can consider Flex Power Saber Blade and Apacs Sabre Light racket.
