    Between the baseline and netcord.
    Mostly for the popular racquets there are fakes. I don't except to see any fake Wilson K Factor KZero's. They're just not hot sellers like a BLX PS 6.1 90.

    Does It Hit Fake Balls? Or Is The Brand Name A Fake?

    There are a lot of what I call "Legal Fakes" out there too. Go to big sports chains (Big 5, Sports Authority, *****, etc). A manufacturer, say Prince, may sell them the rights to make one of their discontinued rackets. I've seen Triple Threat ThunderBolts, Prince TT Rips, to name two. They completely bypass Prince USA. They buy the rights to make certain, usually popular, frames. But, they have no obligation to make them to the specs of the original. There were no Triple Threat ThunderBolts in the first place. Quite a scam if you ask me.
