    Hey Guys,
    Was wondering if you could help me decipher a little mystery. I originally thought I purchased an unlabelled tgk237.1 but now i'm not so sure. Take a look at this frame...at 1st I thought it could be a knock off but know I'm not sure what to think...see below.

    So you can clearly see the paint job is miticulously accurate but it's missing where the tie off holes are suppose to be. Also the micro gel decal is slightly off in the inner hoop.

    So I immediately thought chinese knock off until I took off the pallets off the TGK237.1. The TGK237.1 has a different label 'BUT' the label also has chinese characters in it....and i'm sure this one is legit.

    Below is the retail hairpin label. The only label with 'NO' chinese written on it.

    Oddly both the mystery stick and tgk had little strips of white paper (long gone from wear and tear) with exact weight measurements and balance etc cover with tape. So both have been customized to an extent it seems.

    As for weight

    Without the anything but the hairpin (no silicon) the specs were like this.

    TGK237.1 - 233g Balance of 33.3cm
    Mystery frame 239 Balance of 33.7cm
    Retail MG prestige mid 250g (still got the grommet on so i didn't get an accurate measurement).


    So anyone encounter a frame like this before? It came with a legitimate TK76 pallet. I'm puzzled since most chinese knock off have resin and no pallet system.

    I know you experts must know something.
