How do you know?

the only way to find out for sure is to buy it and check it out or see if seller will send or post hi-res pics - there is no way to tell from the posted pic. i would besurprised if turns out to be other than genuine.

How do you know?

1. he's a power seller. people who sell fakes are usually banned or delete their account before coming close to being power sellers.
2. 100% feedback from over 200 items
3. he's sold the racquet before and no one's complained about it
4. the racquet is 3/8 and not 1/4. fakes are almost always 1/4.
5. he also seems to have a variety of items. people who sell fakes generally only sell one or two models.
6. it's being shipped from within the US and the seller does not appear to be working from China.
7. he's using paypal, so you can get your money back if it does turn out to be a fake.

this isn't 100%, but i'm pretty confident that it's legit. If I were in the market for an extreme, I'd probably buy it. however, it wouldn't hurt to be cautious and ask him for a pic of the authenticity sticker.
