I recently purchased this from a member here. The "Accuracy and Distance" looks small, exactly like the fake OP posted. Thoughts?

Real? Rec'd this as a replacement as the original shaft I bought on the BST broke in half in shipping.  No idea where this one came from but hopefully it's real.

That one looks fake. No overlapping white under the Tour AD and the text looks off on the "S".

I just received a black and white version and was concerned. Call pro choice golf shafts and read the serial # to them, they'll have it in their system of real and will tell you color and specs. If they don't have record of it, it's fake.

could the dot for the "i" be rubbed off?  I'm curious as in the BST and on eBay, that's what I look for.

This is not true from the last time I spoke with Bill at Proschoice. The shafts made before GD left the states aren't as easily tracked by serial numbers

Found this guy on eBay. Pro clubs I believe in Arizona. Looking at these pictures would you say these are fake or legit???

Has the heatwrap label, lettering on shaft like it should, stickers from Graphite Design, and is sold by one of eBay's best seller? Jeeze I wouldn't want you to have to think for yourself once.

I was worried because it's missing the tour ad di 7x label but other than that everything else matches up. Thanks goondawg.

In your first pic it looks like I can see where the white label overlaps. If yours has the white line running down the white section where it overlaps it is legit. From the photos provided, nothing looks off

Newbie here, I really learned a lot from you guys.  I recently bought a MT-7s off ebay and it looked legit due to the white line, holograms etc...  When I pulled the grip off, there was no etched serial number, which kinda freaked me out.   Some pics to Bill confirmed that it was in fact a real shaft.  I'm only posting because someone mentioned that the mt's would have the etched sn, which isn't always the case.

just bought this off of the BST. I think it looks real, just wanted to get some confirmation from some people to ease my mind. It looks like there is a white line though the white part and the holograms are there. I can't see the serial # and logo b/c the grip is installed. Thanks for the help!

Real. That is the line where the heat wrap/silkscreen gets folded over in production.

Hey guys, quick question.   I have a DI7 that has WDI7A-X underneath the grip as opposed to my GP which has WGP7-X.  Is this an indication it is counterfeit or senior flex? Or just an older model?

Hey Boys

Just picked this up second hand. I figured you guys could tell from these pictures. It does NOT have the circular logo anywhere on the shaft. It appears to have the silkscreen fold and an etched serial number.

It's real. Also whomever gouged the shaft during grip removal should be more careful.

Looks good. Overlap is present and shading in between the stripes looks accurate
