I heard there are many fake babolats made in SE Asia, they're made from titanium, and very hard to tell because they have the same painting work...Anyone heard of this? How can you tell if its fake?
Thanks.

I have a fake head lm prestige mid if anyone wants it. balance - about 30 points head heavy. headsize - looks to be around 100 sq.in (but supposedly a mid)

The PJ is pretty accurate. The seller told me it was an lm prestige mid. Here are the differences b/w it and the original

1. beam width = 23 mm
2. headsize = 100 sq.in.
3. balance ~17 inches from buttcap
4. weight ~ 300 grams
5. writing on throat - pretty much the same as the reg. except you can tell someone has messed up the alphabets - someone who does not know english!!

I am giving it away but not for free! You need to atleast cover shipping charges plus ~$20 sound reasonable?
