I don't like the looks of the script in Titleist. What do you think?

They did a show on Golfchannel about this. It's damn near impossible to tell! I had a buddy that had gotten a fake 910 driver once off Ebay...we would never had known until the local pro checked about it and it turned out to be fake.

That's a start, but real serial numbers are used by counterfeit makers.

If in doubt leave it alone, and if the price is too good to be true then it prob. is!

Font looks a little less precise than Titleist typically has. It's nearly impossible to definitively say real or fake based on these photos alone though.

Unless the savings is very significant, just pass and go buy one from someone reputable.

If you are buying it off someone, I would bail and look for something more reliable.
If it's a crazy good deal, than it's too good to be true.

Nothing like getting near the green, chipping, and thinking "Is this wedge real?" as you chunk one 4 feet

Whats the practical difference between a real voley wedge made in china and a counterfeit wedge with same shape, weight and mass distribution of a vokey also made in china? )grooves tolerances maybe!?) Graphite shafts are anotehr story but shaped pieces of metal.. Not trying to defend counterfeit products here of course, just pointing at that marketing s*** that leads us to want to buy a vokey over any other wedge manufacturer.

I say buy it, have faith in it, pretend its the real overpriced thing that you got for a deal and chip like you never before with it!

Materials, balance, craftsmanship, swing weight...etc.  That's what you pay for, not scrap metal in a shape.

I would be willing to bet that the actual shape (more importantly the grind), weight, etc. will not be the same as an authentic vokey. The shaft will also probably be a piece of garbage.  Oh and the grip will probably smell of gasoline.

The 'L' in the script looks significantly different.  Could just be the photo quality, but I would bail.  There is a reason you are questioning it.  ;)

That’s supposed to be “glare” from the sun on that image. The saw on the actual wedge will be solid in person.

It’s crazy that people would go as far to make a fake wedge....$150 product? I prefer to buy wedges new, more than anything in the bag. Just want them to wear my way, and know exactly how much wear is on them. I understand it could get pricey replacing every 1-2 seasons, but these are your scoring clubs, and probably do get a slight advantage playing a fresh wedge over something bagged for long length of time (rounds pending) have seen 1 season wedges at my course from a few guys who play quite a bit with a dent (actually a wear mark) from practicing short game so often.
Back to OP, I understand getting a deal, but again...maybe consider every two seasons your gonna need fresh wedges, if you play a lot, and buy new planning for expense. Nice as well because you will have a practice set to not put wear on gamers if you keep in rotation.

Looks to me like someone redid the paintfill, let it dry, then scuffed the excess with a scotch brite pad. Doesnt look fake to me but if i had questions id check out the serial with titleist. I know fakers use real serials but im sure titleist knows of this as well. If theres too many questions just find another. They made a billion of these wedges so they arent exactly hard to find.

SM7s are $175 each.  I'm retired on a fixed income. Love to have new clubs often, but ain't gonna happen. If I made money playing golf, I might consider it. I don't. I just beat up on 20-handicappers.  Used is fine with me. The wedge is question is lightly used. When I receive it, I'll call Titleist with the serial number. Owner told me the golf country club where he bought it. I asked him about paint fill and he was offended. lol.

Just to put an ending to this thread, I received the club yesterday. It looks nothing like the crappy photos the seller took. It is practically new, in great shape, and authentic.

Thanks for your input.

I've had worries before due to pictures. Hell once I bought a fairway wood where the pictures had a couple sky marks, a worn grip, and a scratched up sole. The club I received was new in the wrapper. I contacted the seller and he said "bank error in your favor, keep it". Turned right around and sold it :)

Just to put an ending to this thread, I received the club yesterday. It looks nothing like the crappy photos the seller took. It is practically new, in great shape, and authentic.

Thanks for your input.

I've had worries before due to pictures. Hell once I bought a fairway wood where the pictures had a couple sky marks, a worn grip, and a scratched up sole. The club I received was new in the wrapper. I contacted the seller and he said "bank error in your favor, keep it". Turned right around and sold it :)

LOL. I bought a set of MP-32s online for $30 because the seller listed them as "Nizno Golf Drivers." Other buyers just passed them by. You can make a nice profit off scores like that. :)

I bought a set of CG10s that I later found out were probably not genuine. Gamed them for a few seasons. Holed out quite a bit. The only issue I had was my 52 always went farther than it should have and spun a lot more. So yeah, it probably wasn't 52 degrees and the grooves were probably illegal but it was a good deal. After that I just pay the premium from reputable sellers.
