I bought this used and I think it might be fake. Can you guys see if there are any tell tail signs of a fake here? I'm really concerned because it was quite cheap so I'm starting to think it is fake, but I'm not sure how to tell a genuine one from a fake.

Album is below, sorry about the crappy phone photos!

Picture of the serial number would be the last bit of info I would need.

As far as I know there aren't any fakes with the new hologram lense. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Ah I don't trust myself to glue the rubber back on, so I don't think I can get a photo of the serial until I change the rubbers.

I guess this one might be OK, then.

Still worried because it was really cheap, but if nothing stands out, may e it's real or just a good fake.

looks real to me, should have seen the front to be 100% shure but it looks just like mine. Smile

The serial number is just to the right of the handle on the forehand side, you'll only have to lift the rubber label a bit to be able to see it. Probably does not help though, and it does look genuine, so perhaps just count yourself lucky. Thumbs Up

Real. No fake for the hologram handle ones yet.

Viscaria is a fantastic blade with arylate for vibration damping and carbon for speed , power and larger sweet spot.

But imagine Butterfly using the same design for a large-head but with only carbon & arylate on offensive side but with high isolation middle layers and high vibration and top-spin deadening layers on defensive sides.

But as I said in another thread Butterfly probably has little time to waste on small chopper market investigating this design while they can spend their time for larger glue-sucking booster market blade designs.

I have a sanwei two face which is pretty much what you describe. Wasn't too expensive. It just collects dust, though  

Re-impact make two speed blades also... But they're exxy
