Has any one purchased one of the blacked out PS97 counterfeits from China off of the bay?

I purchased one and it just came in yesterday. It weighs 11.5 oz. I can post some pics and compare it to a real PS97 that I'm stringing for a customer if any one is interested.

I love the disclaimer on the listing

**Disclaimer. I am not claiming these rackets to be any brand. I just compared them to a model of Wilson because other than the lack of branding present anywhere on the frame, and the custom weight and balance, they are identical. The feel is very similar, but with just a tad more heft and stability.**

How badly does it play?
It actually doesn’t play too bad. It’s definitely not head light and it does have some heft to it in stock form. It has a weird leather grip and there really is no indication that it is a wilson other than the PW but like the listing said the buttcap is all black and wilson isn’t engraved in the head guard. The only wilson is written in the specs in the throat the Wilson W isn’t there like on the PS97. Also the PS is not on the bottom of the hoop just the 97 painted on. You can tell there was some effort put into making the racquet. I’ve played with the 2015 RF97 before..and they seem to play similar. I’ll take some pics and post them soon.
