Totally fake if you look at the cone code in the picture. The balance and stiffness ratings are all wrong. Then warrantied tension is 2lbs less than it should be for a 3U. I don't know if I'm correct or not but I'm pretty sure they didn't make G3 for the asian market much less the Taiwanese market as it indicates TW code on the spec sheet at the grip. Hell it isn't even made in Taiwan. The blue butt cap like that in the picture is only for rackets that are manufactured in Taiwan. The 12 has always been made in China.
