Can someone confirm this is real... everything leads me to think yes but I always love second opinion.

I'm not an expert, but a quick google for "scotty concept 2.5" brought up these photos from the 2016 Nedbank Challenge. Looks like the same putter just with the paintfill removed from the sightline and some heavier weights?

I am no expert on this, but comparing it to others it looks 100% legit.

If it's fake, it is a very very good fake.

Depth of etchings looks different to me. One is noticeably deeper and sharper (I'm assuming this would be the real one).

Good eye but that could very well be a lighting/photo difference. One is taken indoors, one is taken outdoors with much more light.

Also, there could be black shiny paint fill that was in one and removed in the other.

The engravings on the sole look off to me, and not due to the lighting.  They appear to be wider than on the nedbank putter.  I'm leaning fake.

Also, if you look at pic 2, the bottom edge of the T looks to touch the circle. In pic 1, there is a clear space in this area.

Real or fake, Iíd never buy a $2,000+ putter based on average pics at best. And only 3 of them! Get me high quality pics from every angle on these or no deal.

I'm not sure about this one, but every Circle T I've seen the Circle T stamp on the face is much more centered". This seems too high and to the right. If you look at the one in the other pics (taken outside) you can see what I mean.

I would not be buying this unless it came with a COA and much higher quality pics.

Man, seeing those pics side by side does make something look off. Would seem worthwhile to me to get some pictures with decent lighting at least.

Seems like the side parts of the circle should be flatter, see pic vs example. Also the etching doesn't look as fine IMO.

I will say the fakes with inserts I've seen, the top right corner of the insert if looking at the face, has been far more squared off and not rounded like real Scottys. Take that for what you want, but I'm leaning towards real.

I'll take your word for it, but out of curiosity I messaged the seller. LOL at his response "I'm sure..."
