Fake Apacs Visible Hollow 1800?
I just bought a Visible Hollow 1800 for $105 SGD from a small backalley shop one the 2nd floor of queensway shopping centre in Singapore..
After i bought it, I discovered that the racquet does not comes with a hologram sticker like my friend's APACS racquet (of different model) on the cone. There is also no serial number embossed on either the cone or the shaft of the racquet. Is this normal?
This racquet is also supposedly rather stiff as mentioned by reviews in this forum, however i tried bending the racquet and found that it flexes extensively, especially between the cone and the shaft.
When I was about to make payment, the Indian shop owner further informed me that their NETs machine was faulty, and requested I pay cash. After i paid them, no receipt was given.
The shop owner then gave me an APACs bag (the big type) but it looked rather old. Upon reaching home i also discovered that there are several crack lines at the head of the racquet where the string enters.
Did i buy a fake racquet? Please advice!!!

lesson to be learned?
don't buy manufactured goods from "small backalley shops"
there's a clone for everything and since it is a clone for a cheaper racquet, quality would be lacking even more..
clone or not, any racquet with cracks is bad so...

Why do you buy racquets from small backalley shops? Always buy from reputable, racquet sports only, and authorized dealers.
