    I have two new stick, but i am not sure that this are real ones, look at the pics, after the Babolat in the black there isn't a white line, normally that has to been there, and the specifications are on the same side of the racquet, what has to be one at every side.
    Real or fake?

    From looking at the pics, the racquet looks 100% authentic.

    I bought 1 from the **** long time ago. Luckily i bought 1 from my local tennis shop before i bought that one, and when i got it i compared them and found out the one i bought on the Bay was a faked. Here are some details (I'll go with the faked one to the real one): Grip 4 3/8 but feel smaller than the real one with 4 3/8, the length is a little longer than the rean one (27.28 in), the paint is a little darker than the real one, and not as shine as the real one, the bumper looks cheap and the word Babolat on the bumper is totally different than the real one, the Babolat serial number sticker is dark and ugly than the real one and it seems to fall off easily than the real one, and last but not least: stay away from anyone who sells "Pre-strung" Babolat Pure Drive GT, cause the real one brand new never have string on it.

    Hope you guys use these information to check the pictures carefully before buying. Take care.
