I bought this recently on ebay and the only giveaway to me is the weight. It weighs at 85-86g. On the other hand I read fake korbels are heavier.  Build quality looks pretty good.

Why do you think it might be fake?

I thought it was a bit lighter than usual. Ordered it from a US eBay seller. A Japanese seller showed me his blade (same Petr Korbel FL) was 100g. Once I peeled off the sticker on the box the underlying serial number did match the one on the blade. Seems like it's genuine after-all :D

Added Nittaku Fastarc G-1 MAX on both sides and it feels great, well balanced and I like the weight, a bit head heavy. Feels 100x better than Yasaka Sweden Extra with Mark V 2.0 (I was able to sell it on eBay). Very happy with this setup, my first proper custom setup, always played with cheap pre-assembled rackets before.

the quality looks too good to be fake.
