    This website looks extremey shady. I hope I never get a used racquet from somebody who bought it on here. Why can't all of these fake sites get taken down? It seems like these are the kind of sites supplying all of the fake racquet sellers on that big auction site.:confused. They are selling a brand new babolat aeropro drive for 75 shipped! Hmm for some reason I don't believe they are a licensed dealer.

    From their address, it is located in a place where there are many merchants who sell used stuffs such as windows and beams from traditional houses, paintings, etc. Even these things are fakes because they would bury the stuffs in soil for a few weeks so they may look like very old. I have been to that place.

    There's another site:
    http://www.****soho.com

    Stuff there looks more realistic? But still $55 for a Babolat! Could they be factory defects or five fingered factory mechandise?

    I visited some of the "black" markets when I went to the Philippines and saw some of those kiosks. I was wondering how in the heck they were selling racquets and nike shox for $20. I talked to the merchant and he said the mechandise is either overstock, factory seconds that didn't pass quality control, or are prototypes that were used in R&D. Most of the goods are manufactured in Asian factories where black market trade is very prominent, especially near the Nike or Wilson 'sweatshops'. I bought three Nike shox running shoes (NZ, turbo, monster) and they are no different from what you see at American chain stores at the mall. I was looking at some of their racquets and decided to pass since I noticeable felt weight differences within the same racquet, or saw skewed paint job differences (for example, one N6.1 had a matte finish while another was glossy). Goods that are not made in Asia, like some of the Lacoste polos "made in France" or the Dolce & Gabanna "made in Italy" were blatant fakes made in China though.

    yeah, its true, in some parts of the Philippines, there are markets with genuine designer clothes and items, because of overstock, and so and so as you said. Yet, the hardest part is finding where they are.
