    Default Is this racket fake?

    Hi, my friend just recently bought a racket off of ebay and it is a Armortec 800 Offensive for about $85 US. He was wondering if the racket was fake because the person that sold it off of ebay said it was an earlier model and was not fake. Just to make confirm that its fake or not, I need your guys thoughts and opinions about this racket. Thank You.

    fake indeed. that is the worst paint job i've ever seen. look at "Offensive" and how ugly the lettering is.

    tell your friend to get his $85 back and save up another 85 for a real AT800OFF lol. =D
