PostSubject: Real and fakes, how to tell?   Thu Apr 14, 2011 11:24 am

Hi peeps!

I've heard that there's such a thing as real and fake goods in the market.
Is there anyway to tell the difference?
I'm especially looking at TaylorMade 2.0 irons.

Any advises and or comments would be very useful.

Thanks in advance peeps! p(^o^)q

Yes I believe and I know people who collect putters too. Same like you collect watches and one day you decide that you dont like horology anymore. What do you do? you sell. does it mean that they are fake? Not necessarily lah.

Well... some of them are selling their Scotty's because they might have switched to the Zen putter...
As for the person that might be selling his/hers 5 Scotty putters... I am sure they are genuine and maybe they have a valid reason to sell them

Just buy from TM Cathay or Mandarin Gallery.
You can be sure it's original and authentic.

Hello, anyone knows how to tell if a R9 460 driver is authentic ?

If you use the wrench to turn the screw for the shaft adjustment and it does not produce the click sound, does it mean the shaft is fake?

I bought a new SuperTri
use the wrench 3 times , theres click sound
but after the 4th times , no more click sound but can still feel that the wrench still works

I went back to the shop and they change one wrench for me and now got click sound again
a friend who has Taylormade told me the wrench may still work even without the click sound
