Just want to give everyone a heads up.  Ordered some grips on ebay without doing some research first.  Well the guy I bought the grips from has perfect feedback.  Come to find out he's in Malaysia, but the grips ship from China!  Stay away from him, the grips are fake.  I emailed him after emailing back and forth with other eBay members who purchased from him.  I requested to cancel my order and get a refund.  I got the refund.
His name:  Bazaar88,  Toolhaus info

Here are some guides to show how to spot fake Golf Pride grips.  http://search.review...Fake-Golf-Grips
Some of his pictures are in these guides.

I bought a set (13 pcs) of Blue Multi Compound from him about a month ago and from another seller like a year ago. Now that you mentioned it I think mine are definitely fakes. But honestly they're okay to use though. For $49 (13 pcs) I think it's a good deal and they don't really affect that much. It's not like I agree with fakes or anything, what I'm saying is for that price you get what you paid and they're totally fine. You're going to replace them after a season anyway. But this is just me and of course you can choose whatever you want.

So these are fakes from Bazaar88 ?

And this ones are the real ones?
http://cgi.ebay.com/...emZ350019665434


Iīm looking forward to buy some new grips for this season. The GP New Decade Multi Compound seems really nice, but i donīt want to buy fakes. This Bazaar guy has 100% feedback - I donīt really know how to buy legit ones for a reasonable price.

Here in Germany _one_ GP New Decade costs about 20$ - so I thought for regripping a whole set it would be cheaper to buy something from the US "bay".

Donīt know what to do now, any suggestions where to buy "cheap" original New Decades? Or any other grip recommendations? (need standard size grips with a more firm than soft feel that also play well in wet weather)

First link are fake GPs.  Check out these links to find out how to tell:  http://reviews.ebay....000000005085243
http://reviews.ebay....000000004633750

I don't mind using fake grips, but I was told they were real.  Also have it in email of him saying they were authentic.  I just don't like be lied too.  I will just spend the $85 and get real GPs.

I just purchased some of these grips a little over a week ago. I wish I had done my homework before buying them. I am done purchasing golf equipment from Ebay. This absolutely has to stop. DO NOT PURCHASE FROM   BAZAAR88

People need to realize that basically, FEEDBACK MEANS NOTHING.  100+ feedbacks could easily mean 100+ people that got fooled, 100+ people that wouldn't know fake if it was in their lap, 100+ people that are NOT hard-core golfers that know the ins and outs of all things golf like the members of GolfWRX.

I try to avoid buying on eBay whenever possible, especially for items that are notoriously knocked-off.
