    both fake, without a doubt. It may play just like an authentic frame, but they are not authentic.

    The wilson is definitly a fake. I can tell only from looking to the bag. The white bar in the upper a lower part of the bag should end after the 'o' of 'Wilson' an they end before the 'o'

    <40 bucks for a Babolat. lol. there is no way in hell this could be real. even for wholesale, these frames cost more than that just in manufacturing.

    I'm a bit surprised they are creating fake KPS88's as it's turned out to be a not-so-popular frame.

    BTW... whenever you see a professional frame being sold strung in grip sizes 2 or 3... it's probably fake.

    There are tons of threads just like this already. It's common sense.

    Trust him on this one.

    Bud KPS88 is always a popular frame because is the re-incarnation of the PS6.0 in 88''.

    I think you're looking at the price for either 6 or 10 frames.

    This is always the giveaway on the Babs. All the fakes have regular grommets in the throat rather than the Woofers. I've yet to see a fake Babolat with Woofer grommets or even grommets resembling them.

    Oh... and forgot to mention that the bag of the KPS88 doesn't have a '(R)' of registered trademark after the (K) Factor. The (R) should be on the 1 o'clock of the last R of (K) Factor.

    I should have said Kfactor bag :)
    Those comparations are made with the bag of my ksixone.
    At TW the ksixone doesn't come with bag but in my country they come with bag.

    You guys mean to tell me the seller isn't just trying to hook us up with some great pricing with 6 frames for just a little more than the price of one? Put on your best pair of running shoes, and run fast!

    You should only buy a racquet from an authorised dealer.
    If you're stupid enough to buy one off the bay then you deserve to be ripped off.

    the head ones are pathetic, i looked up some liquidmetals to see what they would look like, they look so bad, only an idiot would fall for the fake head LM and FXP series, they did a decent job with the MGs but wow they really sucked on the heads haha
