FAKE NETS FOR LL Removable Limbs C3PO:

Characteristics on fake nets:

-Smaller arm holes
-The circular outside edge line on the arm hole is not smooth as it should be (seems hand cut)
-Wrong material, too glossy (look at fake1)
-The rectangular inside cuts are hand made
-The heat seal goes all the way to the top
-Wrong heat seal mark

This is how a LL Net must look like:


Very Happy

Good spot, Ozio!  Thanks for warning us. Very Happy 


Is the pattern of the holes the same as on the Ledy net?

Ozio, was this anyone in particular trying to sell or you just happened across one from a private buy? It is a dang shame that now these are being faked. I suppose it was a matter of time until they started in on the ledy line with repro crap.......all the more reason to buy from reliable sources.

I can't see your picture buddy but no, the pattern is totally different and it's pretty clear it was made with a blade by hand.

A good friend found and told me about them.

Great Info Ozio

I have noticed a couple of these going for high $$ recently which is a shame if they where fakes.

Thanks
