there should be 2 holes you will feel if it is not authentic...also that marking would be at the underside of the wing towards the middle....

if there isnt anything in there...then its real....

replica fiberglass wings have two breather holes on the underside of the part of the wing that connects the left and right sides. thats the holes quicksilver is referring to. these holes are there to prevent the fiberglass from warping during the hot summer days, it lests the hot air excape from inside the wing. authentic ones dont have this.

you are right about this. i've seen replica ITR wings have no markings or stamps of any kind. however, real ITR wings feels much solid and well made than the replica ones.

so we are talking about 2 holes other than the drilled holes for the wing?

also.. if i DONT have the 2 breather holes.. do i for sure have a genuine wing?
