Man looks fine to me as well. I just got a flexpoint radical midsized version, I realize its not the same racket as this one but it looks the same pretty much. I'm debating whether I want to string it now or pass it on to someone else cuz I'm enjoying my PS 6.0

Man mine is redish too and I got it from a reputable sports chain in Canada. I'm actually kinda indifferent with how it looks, but then again I prefer boring looking frames lol.

Ya i'd say it looks like sports car red although I can see under certain lighting and in photos it is orangish.

Dang well the dirty thing to do would be to retract ur bid. Or not pay for it even if u win, resulting in u getting a non-paying strike. If ur not confident don't take it man.

Ya I hear u. I am 27 now but I remember spending most of my part-time work money on rackets in highschool and ever dollar counts. Everything else went to court fees etc.

Nah I doubt it man they are all the made in China now. I wish they were still made in Austria like the Ti Radical a few years back.

It is not a fake, looks exactly like the FXP Rad Tour that I used to own.

Besides that, the demand volume for the Rad Tour is not high enough for counterfeiters to consider producing it. They would rather copy Babolat and Wilson.

I don't know what color this frame is supposed to be, but I do know that TW has wrong white balance (shifted colors) in many of it's product images. It is especially annoying with apparel which turns out to be different color when you receive it.

check the users feedback, simple as that. Also, if he started his account like a day or two before he started the auction, you should take caution

it looks ok to me, it might be because of the bright lighting

same with rackets. the colors are generally brighter in the pictures. take a look at the rds001 or mfil200. in real life, they're no where nearly as bright.

Right before anyone had replied I read this thread.
Sadly I was unable to post since I had JUST REGISTERED AT THAT MOMENT (which by the way took 3 days to validate me X_X).

Anyways, I was demoing that exact racquet, and YES IS NOT A FAKE.
Looks identical to the one I have right now next to me.

Note: Oh and by the way, this forum is great.
Can't wait to learn from ya guys a few things here and there.
If any of you who has some experience is willing to chat with me (a total noob) using aim, msn, or yahoo messenger, send me a PM. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.
