So far there are no fake stuff selling in Singapore openly. The real deal is very easy to identify because the finishing is very detailed (of course it also depends on which brand). Even the AAA copies I see from China can't match the quality.

Better call God's Helpline. You may have been shortchanged by quite a fair bit.

There is an article in the GolfAsia magazine this month that featured fake clubs and their distribution network. Looking at the pictures, cannot tell real from fake.

Few years ago I saw a set of AP2 in China. The finishing is good, the feel is solid and no hint of fake. The price? S$300. Go figure...

Surprise to see the war instead of a thx to SC for the advice. War

am not good in differentiating the club. But in my work, the only advice for my customer is -
PLS buy from only AUTHORIZE distributor to make sure you get a genuine part. Very Happy

A fake item can copy everything as real, until it is disassemble to know inside out.
Good luck!!!

Talk about patriotism......jeez...! I'm a Singaporean and working in Singapore but residing in JB. I love my country and I also love the place where I reside, Malaysia......Thank God..., I'm getting the best of both worlds.....(and also the bad....) I've traveled in Malaysia alot and been to a number of their pro shops and trust me most of the items they sell looks legit and these pro shops does'nt just sell but give good advice. So please, don't judge a book by it's cover. To me Malaysia is a beautiful country. BTW, I think HF still plays golf in JB, correct me if I'm wrong....CHEERS!

speaking abt fake stuff. Go see taniya, even more fake sc covers for abt $40-$60, despite on the 3 flr, there's a sc custom shop which sell the real cover.

Anyway, if the price is too good, always walk away.
