    That's funny... They're selling a k6-1 team with the specs COMPLETELY effed up as a Kblade team. Lol...

    Thing is, this isn't even a guy in China, this is a guy in the USA... Thing is, the 6-1 (if it is that) actually looks kind of genuine...

    You guys sure you're not off base here?

    Please explain for other TTWers why those are fake....

    ...plus, you could be needlessly freaking out sellers who may have a legitimate item.

    BTW I found this hillarious on item 320277104133
    Description

    The [K] SixOne Tour 90 delivers a professional level of [K]ontrol and feel built into a lighter tour frame for easier maneuverability. It has been specifically designed for the [K]ompetitive player who desires the winning edge. The dense 18x20 string bed further enhances control and feel for advanced players. Weighing a full 1½ ounces lighter than its predecessors, the [K] SixOne Tour 90 improves maneuverability without sacrificing power.

    thats actually there LOL

    the weight does not help his case too much
    + he listed as a kblade

    but maybe...not likely

    checked that one out. Definitely fake. Specs would seem more right (on both) for the six-one team. Though the second listing has it with a 90" head... Oooops. Actually wonder if the first might be legit, if it's actually the one pictured. The throat is more right on that one, though something still seems off.
