Question FSA Carbon Pro Seatpost (genuine article?)

I recently purchased an FSA Carbon Pro seatpost from Ross in Cartimar for P1.7K+. It is basically aluminum with a carbon-look finish. The bolts in the clamp are supposedly titanium according to the store owner. The logos are laminated and the product labels look geniune. The store owner says that it is original.

Upon arriving home, I logged into the FSA website and coulnd't find the seatpost in their product lineup based on pictures. Why is that? Could the one I have be a previous year model? I would be perfectly fine by that. I just want to be sure that I didn't buy a fake.

Below is what the seatpost looks like. Did I buy the real deal?

Nice seatpost you got there, sir!

You may be right with your theory--that it might just be an old model of some sort. You can try googling for some images or information that might help you out with your worries. But it really looks cool, sir...

I trust ROSS, so I would say that's genuine but either an older model or an OEM model.

Might indeed be an older model or an OEM that came on built bikes.

If you bought it from Ross I'm quite sure it not a fake.

I'm a suki at Ross as well and I know them for carrying genuine brands. I just couldn't help thinking that a fake "might" have found its way into their shelves. Thanks for the reassurance guys. I now feel more at ease. :)
