i just recently bought the same racket frm e#b#a#y but for 130 aus (bidded) not buy now . I assume its real because it had the original price sticker with all the barcoding on the plastic.

Ezekiel

ooo im not sure about that because iv never seen a wilson n-six one with a white grip.... odd does it say micro dry on the grip?

mine says 4 1/4 on the buttcap

Ezekiel
03-03-2006, 12:59 AM
sorry .. yea mine says 2 with 4/14 on the other side

Fishbulb
03-03-2006, 01:03 AM
Mine doesnt say micro dry grip on it, but maybe it does seeming i havent opened it?
But it does say No. 2 and 4 1/4 on the butcap.

i also noticed that your authentication sticker has like many W's on the top.... mine doesnt..... yours probably came from a different factory im not sure....

had a hit with it yet?

Ezekiel
03-03-2006, 01:04 AM
well mine says micro dry grip even thought the plastic is still on it

Fishbulb
03-03-2006, 01:08 AM
Yeh ive had a hit with mine, it feels great. Its strung with sigmum pro poly plasma as well.

You may have the newer version, what is the colour the wilson "W" and its background above your grip?

Ezekiel
03-03-2006, 01:08 AM
i found another difference

you no the very last pictur of the list? look right at the bottom where the W is. Right above that... seems like the white paint is too far down going to the W. that area should be red until the top

Ezekiel
03-03-2006, 01:10 AM
hmm seems to me urs look newer than mine because never in my life iv seen a white replacement grip on a n-six one team ....

My W is white and the back ground (square part) is Red.


i mean as long as it plays fine u dont need to worry about anything

Fishbulb
03-03-2006, 01:13 AM
Yeh i do think i have a newer version. It's apparently fresh from the factory that supplies wilson racquets to all major stores

Ezekiel
03-03-2006, 01:14 AM
o since you mentioned that......... its probably real

Ezekiel
03-03-2006, 01:15 AM
are you from australia?

Yeh man, Sydney.

I just took the plastic off the grip.
The handle is actually black and it does say micro dry.

The paint on the plastic made it seem white

my guess that it is a fake, check the string pattern, i'm sure i counted 16x18 but on the throat i think it says 18x20, for some reason fakes always seem to have incorrect stringing patterns. They also seem to have 4 1/4 grip sizes, if you took the grip off you could see if there is a grip pallett underneath or some chinese writting.

nagaul

sorry definately a fake the pattern is 16x16

Why is there a 16x18 pattern on a team?

And the small wilson logo below the throat, I don't know, it could be a newer paint job, but it looks fishy to me...

DADYO

And also, the "Wilson Quality" hologram sticker doesn't have any serial number on it... Quite suspicious...

At the top of the head inside the hoop, the PS is white. Shouldn't it be yellow, or red or something?

EDIT: I was right. Look:

The 289 gram version has a white one i believe. I'd honestly like to say Fishbulb its real but i honestly dont know

legolas

it looks kinda fake when you look down the paint in the throat

Fishbulb
03-03-2006, 11:41 AM
The wilson hologram does have a number on it, its: k352074
The new nsix one teams are supposed to have a white PS.

What do you mean about a small wilson "w" below the throat?

brucie

I dont think its aTeam the Team frame is not like that its like the heavy 95 but the heavy 95 has a yellow PS is it 332g or 289g

Fishbulb
03-03-2006, 01:20 PM
it is 289g

I'm from Aussie land too, Melbourne. Had a look on ****, and it looks like half of the racquets on their are fake. Even the ones with very good feedback.

Damn, you got a fake one, also string pattern is 16x18 when it should be 18x20. Also the PS is the right silver colour but string pattern is a giveaway its fake. Also put your finger where the throat and hoop meet. i.e near the middle of intellifibers and if the head drops down forward and is head-heavy then it is even more fake.

Ezekiel

Fish mentioned it felt great so fake or not, seems to me he feels satisfied....

Check with Wilson, tell them you may have found a fake. Give them the # on the hologram sticker, they should be able to tell you if it's legit or not based on that.

It did feel like a good racquet. But it was Head Heavy which determines that it was fake. I managed to get a full refund off the guy i purchased it off. I will be buying a genuine one from tennis warehouse Australia.

Thanks for everyones help

Hey Jeremy,
I thought you used the racquet?
Anyway, i want to also have a feel of the Head Liquidmetal Radical MP. Ive heard that is a good racquet as well. Since im about a ntrp 3.5 i have to find a racquet that suits my style.

Fast Swinging and aggressive
Topspn forehand
Topspin 2 Handed Backhand

I am open to suggestions

Thanks
