    Default How to spot fake high end strings?

    A seller is selling me a orange Bg80 Power. I thought Bg80 P only has white or yellow.

    the font of the string name on fake string usually will stretch a lot after stringing. on original one, you can still read every single font on the string after stringing.. well at least at 24-25lbs still ok.

    I only encountered fake strings once. They basically snapped at around 24lb tension.

    Couldn't really tell any difference in the packaging and the string in it's coiled state looked authentic.

    usually, the biggest 2 factors are:

    - price - too good to be true?
    - source - taobao? ebay? sellers from Chinese mainland?

    a few years ago we saw someone selling some NBG95 for like $2 a pack from taobao. it was obvious fake but we bought some for fun anyway. they are like fishing lines.
