Is this the real racquet?

Does this racquet look like the real pure drive GT or the fake to you?

From that angle it is nearly impossible to tell. We need to see pics of inside the butt cap among other things...

Based on a number of things, I would say it's a fake. I wouldn't be surprised if tennis warehouse's lawyers are already all over it considering it's pretty much an exact rip of their site.

Pretty much. It looks like an identical copy of the TW website...

those prices are a dead give away >>>

I remember back in the 1980's a guy ran something similar, mail order and cheated a lot of people, they didn't even get a racket for their money, but the tug or gimmick is the very low price and that will generally grab some people looking for something for nothing, their own greed get's them.

"If its too goo to be true, it probably is!"

Remember that most high end manufacturers whether its tennis racquets, electronics, cars, etc. have M.A.P.
In a nutshell, M.A.P. is a voluntarily price policy agreement a retailer enters into with a supplier. According to the agreement, which varies in details from vendor to vendor, the retailer can sell an item for any price they wish, but may not advertise the item for an amount less than the Minimum Advertised Price. These agreements help level the playing field for both the small retailer and the giant retail chain. Retailers agree to M.A.P. contracts because the vendor makes it worthwhile for them to do so. A retailer who abides by the agreement can count on getting early shipments of new products, and generally enjoys an "Elite" status.

Many Chinese and African companies impersonate real and reputable businesses by purposely using similar names. In this instance, rackets-rackets seems to impersonating a CA. business named Racquets Rackets.

CHEERS!
