Can anyone tell if this is fake or not? I can't imagine any reasonable scenario whereby someone  who knows nothing about table tennis would be in possession of a new set up like this to sell on ebay.

Looks a bit fake (Too Clean for second hand) story doesnt add up: don't know what it is or value but then also having barcode info etc at bottom. Best to stay away

Usually, the first thing you check out is the seller's reliability.  In this case, he's got a 100% rating with 1900 transactions.  I'd call that very good, making him reliable.  

It's apparently penhold handle.  Maybe it's fake, but at that price, it would still be worthwhile.  I'd buy it if it was a full handle (shakehand grip).

It's an auction: how do we know it's not going to reach $160 (its reasonable value if not fake)? if that happens, will it still be suspicious? maybe there is a reserve. Still, assuming it's genuine a blade, how does it land into the hands of a seller who does not know tt material? I would bet on some sort of estate sale, the owner's dead, Jim.

Looks perfectly legit handle. I think it is lost and found bag story or simply stolen stuff. Handles original to me. I play FL, otherwise would bid.

Serial code checks out fine. It's for retail in Shanghai. Consistent with the seller's claim.

zeio, are there new places to check out Butterfly and DHS serial numbers?  Might be worth a thread.
