    Normally when I see a chinese name or address, then I automatically think fake. But then I look at all positibe feedback and the chinese seller does not attempt to hide his identity. Also, the picture of the certificate looks authentic.

    But then the price is too low for a babolat aeropro drive. I am told they wholesale at $115 per.

    when I looked at the bids on e-b-a-y, it says private listing - bidders identities protection. seems weird....dont buy out of asia. this looks fishy. check out the bids, its all the same person and in private.

    The link doesn't work just to let you know. Man I wouldn't trust ****, after all, a large volume of illegitimate rackets are sold on E-B-A-Y and taking a risk like that leaves you on the lower end of the stick. You said that the seller has numerous positive feedbacks, but do remember that E-B-A-Y sellers can force buyers to leave a positive feedback if the buyer decides to return an unwanted fake racket. That is blackmail plus a blend of the old bait and switch or hit and run, you pick.

    Just have some patience and search for one on TennisWarehouse from a user with positive references, a decent grammar structure and syntax and your bound to find an Babolat Aeropro Drive, in addition, a more guaranteed transaction.

    Cheers from California. :)

    I say fake. It's my understanding Babolat racquets do not have that little tag attached by the plastic wire. I have never seen one on any Babolat I have purchased or looked at authorized resellers. It's kind of hard to tell but the grip looks like a crappy wrap job as well. I'd steer clear of this one and pretty much any racquet sold out of China.
