    Fake racquets are unfortunately common place now. I see many fake K90's and K95's on the big auction site. A few posters here have gotten scammed in the for sale section. I've also seen some fake babolats.

    Are most of the fake racquets on the market Wilson and Babolat? Has anyone see any Princes or Heads?\

    Edit: the title should read "What fake racquets have you seen on the market?"

    Saw a head Flexpoint prestige mid and a flexpoint radical MP (and an OS) on some random Chinese website. They were clearly fake.

    Pure drives and Aero Pro Drives are apparently popular to counterfeit

    I've had a fake n6.1 95 Team which cracked after 2 hours play, but then the real ones weren't much better...
