Hey guys,

Ran across an iron set I liked the look of, Honma TW737 V, from a reputable seller(Ksouth9). I watched for a day or two and decided on the ones I wanted. When I finally started bidding, I noticed something strange, which is Ksouth has a bunch of these iron sets, but he always has exactly 26 sets for sale. It seems like as soon as one set ends, another just like it(or maybe the same one) goes back up for sale. Does he have a lot of the same irons or are the same sets recycling? I won the second set I bid on but I guess I'll try to contact him to see if he actually has them before I pay, I don't really want to play the refund game. It's weird either way.

If it isn't crystal clear, the second screenshot was taken after the auctions from the first SS had ended.

10,000+ positive feedbacks? I wouldn't worry about it all. Some vendors just have different ways of doing business. There was a thread here a while back about the different ways. Nice irons, enjoy them.

If I make a run of 25 or 50 custom head covers I’ll list that I have 5 for sale. When those 5 sell I list another 5. Let the feedback be your bobber.

Seems like a lot of trouble for someone that isn't known for selling fakes, but maybe.

It could be a result of selling limits.

Ebay only allows sellers to list a certain amount in dollars and units. If one set sells and therefore lowers his total listed, he has room to list another set.

I’m sorry I wasn’t saying this sellers product was fake, I was referring to the AliExpress link.
Seller feedback says to me they are the real deal in that qty.

My guess is he’s got a bunch of sets but doesn’t list them all at once to avoid flooding the market and competing with himself.

They do this all the time with all different brands of irons.....I'll bet they sold 500 sets of Mizuno Easy forged irons for example.

I did something similar when I used to sell semi-rare items. When I limited my own auctions more people bid. When there were multiple items up people kind of took their time with things

KSouth9 is pretty well known around here with a good reputation.  They're one of a handful of accounts used by a pretty large B&M golf shop that seems to get a lot of liquidation stock.

I got a set of Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged from them with absolutely no issue... listed as "slightly used" to get around Mizuno MAP pricing, but arrived brand new in the Mizuno packaging.

He’s legit, and he has a ton of inventory. Bought a set of Cleveland wedges new in the wrapper and there were 4 other identical sets selling at the same time I got mine. I verified with Cleveland.

He does this frequently because of the amount of inventory he has.

I wouldn't have any qualms purchasing from him.

On GolfWRX alone, there are many posts spanning years that share positive feedback on him.

For instance, a quick search turns up just a few like these:

I have bought a number of items from ksouth9 with no issues. Several were as you described (tons of auctions with the same stock photos). If the clubs are brand new from a reputable seller who moves a lot of inventory, I don't think using stock photos is a big deal -- you'd never expect Dick's or Golf Galaxy to post photos of the exact item.

Every item has been exactly as described and 100% authentic (including, for example, iron sets shipping in the manufacturer's box).
