    Ok, I messaged the owner and he said he paid 25 quid for it. I'm pleased he hasn't got ripped off, but what does everyone think is a safe tension for ZM65 with it?

    23x25 I think will be good for it.

    25 and he thought it was REAL!?

    What string is in it? Or what did he use before normally? You could go lower with ZM65 if his old string was a thick one ...
    It might very well even be able to hold 26lbs.

    It's the metallic colour of the material underneath the paint that is the issue, it's still graphite right?

    Oh yeah I see now. Can't tell from such a small pic, might want to scratch it off even more to check if there is graphite underneath but most likely should be.

    On a sidenote: the gold hologram sticker is also a textbook example of a fake. Just compare it to the one on your 8DX, it's not transparent or much less so than it should be ...

    It flexes like graphite and isn't cold like a metallic surface is, probably just a primer.

    Yeah that's what it looked like to me as well from what I could see

    I think I'll wait for my custom supports to arrive first.

    Supports arrived this morning so I've just strung the racquet. It took 26lb better than the genuine Arc11 I did 2 weeks ago.

    Well that's surprising for me considering it's a fake

    Well I'm no longer surprised as there is so much material in the frame, the balance point is over 310mm
