I just got a new nblade 106 off of e-bay. What do the holograms on these look like? Then one here has a matte finish like the rest of the outside of the racquet, and you can feel that it is stuck on and not printed on. Also, are they supposed to be colorful in light? This one is not.

-cheers

These are cell pics unfortunately.

The hologram on the first shot has a matte finish, not glossy. The second pic shows the yellowed grip, and the 3rd and 4th pics show the less than stellar centering of the Wilson logo on the throat.

Looks real, The sticker on my Nblade is matte as well and though it has slight color in light its not as pronouced as the shiny stickers.

Looks real to me.. looks exactly like my nBlade (MP), although I must say that my nBlade has a different color of Wilson logo above the grip. The logo above the grip on my nBlade is golden like in the hoop and has the same color as the "wilson" letterson the side. But maybe that's just the picture or maybe it's because I have a midplus instead of OS.. :neutral:

Yes, your nBlade looks real enough, though the only way is to verify the hologram number with Wilson...

Wilson's QC on their paintjobs have really deteriorated since the nCode series with logos not painted on straight, colours bleeding into one another and paint chips falling off (on my nCode Six-One 95). Even the KFactors I've seen have the same problem and this is one area where my Babolat wins hands down...

Btw, your pictures show something interesting. Notice on the handle you have a sticker showing the grip size i.e. 4 1/4 - L2? L2 denotes the US version - Light Size 2 grip. Mine is an Asian version with USL2, which denotes Ultra Super Light Size 2. And yes, the Asian version is lighter than the US counterparts (which was discussed in another thread). Cheers!
