: There are alot of fakes, but if you know what to look at you'll be able to spot a real one. First, all parabolan comes in a box which is affixed with a sticker. Real and fake boxes look almost identical, so it is a bit tricky. The sticker on a real box will be indented to break apart in 3 pieces, the fake simply is printed with a dotted line (no actual cut in the sticker). You'll also find 3 stripes on your box (red, green, blue). The fake has these lines too, but at the terminus (bottom) all 3 lines are NOT level with each other. The real box has these lines perfectly level. Other than that, you may have to use it to tell if it's real. These fakes are first class (packaging anyway).
