    What do you think?

    Is this Fischer Vacuum Pro 90 original of Michael Stich or is a "fake", "no original"?

    Thanks

    That's a real one. From 1992-1993 or so.

    Faking famous tennis rackets is more a thing of the last 10 to 15 years or so.
    Golf and badminton equipment, mainly Yonex, has been copied for a bit longer. This late 1980's, early 1990's icon was never copied IMHO. Besides, if it was, it would show. Back then it was much harder to get the decals and PJ just right.

    My sense is that it's not a fake because the detail of the grommets (wider and laid flush with the frame) would be too expensive to replicate for the purposes of selling fakes.

    Agree, these are the grommets used since the first Vacuum models such as the Vacuum SC etc.
    The strip is divided into 4 or 6 parts.

    IMO this racquet has a unique control and feel. if you are able to hit the ball in the sweetspot you won't get disapointed...
