but if you are paying so much for a bag, you'll want it to be genuine, right? It's not like he paid SGD25 for it or something Razz

Is the bag supposed to be exactly the same between the below link and the pictures?
http://www.progolfjapan.com/28008_002832/

I see a few differences like the length of the "TaylorMade" on the side, shape of metal ring for the umbrella, hood color etc.

the seller also has a low feedback score of 108...which typically i would not trust.

can u get out of this sale?

don't buy. It is fake.

Spot the difference. See the handle. The real one has red colour undergrip for the handle. The pic that was posted is grey.

he did not mention its genuine and even stated "made in Asia"

no choice be the bad guy and

ask him to ship to Singapore for US$30, If he agrees despite his clear instruction 'NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING', 100% fake. If he mentions extra shipping cost, act blur and say 'i though its US$30 shipping only. Either way make excuses until he turns nasty then stop dealing with him (can send his email to ebay saying you will not deal with unreasonable ppl)

just tell him you did not realise his instruction 'NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING' so you gracefully and reluctantly give up the bag.

worst case, abandon that eEbay ID. Better than paying US$200++ for a fake bag

Better ask TFP. He's an expert in TM stuffs. Hahahaha
Anyway, china has a great deal of fake bags going at S$140 each for this type of quality.
Was there and surprise that they looked almost the same as real.

I sure hope so, cos I bought one fake TM cart bag from one of the forumers here (who did not mention that it was a fake) and when I got it, it was so obviously fake Sad

No biggie, I gave it to Eric to be donated to anyone who wants a cart bag but no budget to afford one Smile
