    How do you determine that a racket is fake?

    weird stringing patterns (ie 16x19 on a frame marked 18x20), bad color, specs that are way off from what they are supposed to be, no warranty card.

    having the weight vary by too much like about 20 grmas is a huge error to determine is fake.

    You have to perform several voo doo rituals and then pray hard and finally wash the racquet in youth elixir.Hope that helps.

    It costs less than you'd expect to pay.

    Bring a photo of racquet and all kinds of scale with you... It will help.
