    Default Real or fake Apacs Virtuoso Performance and Apacs Stern 800 Power

    Hi All,

    Could you all please help me out in identifying if these 2 rackets are fake or original. I am a bit worried looking at the stickers. I think the sticker "2011 Superbrands Malaysia's Choice" on the Stern 800 Power and "2012 Superbrands Malaysia's Choice" on the Virtuoso Performance should be holographic, but mine are printed...What scares me is that this is quite a reputable shop, so am wondering what is happening here ?
    Thanks

    Hey bro, I have a apacs racket at home. The super brands is imprinted instead of being a holographic. Where did you buy your rackets? So far, apacs has been too affordable to have fake rackets.

    Ic Ic, no problem. Your rackets look like they have been parallel imported from Malaysia. So far, I have only heard of malaysia and singapore coded apacs.

    I've had that question about the UK flag too.. in addition to UK flag on one side, what's shown on the other side? do they have any coutry based code or abbreviation, like Yonex has?

    I like apacs racquets, but just dont understand why they need to put a UK flag on them.

    Yep, counterfeiter wouldn't waste time and effort faking APACS racquets cos they are so affordable (relatively compared to YY).
    Also KPH is one of the reputable badminton shops in Melbourne so you shouldn't need to worry when you buy stuff from them. Look up KPH on FB and you'll see. : )
