Sorry If this is in the wrong forum......My buddy bought some PXG irons on ebay. They are the satin ones and not the black ones......After having them for a while, they started to rust.....Now, a month later, they are rusted very bad....Not just the faces, but the back of the irons.....solid rust spots that almost look like there is no finish on them......Anyone else ever see this or have any idea why......I am thinking they may be fakes.

If not taken care of properly and the face finish is worn then yes they will rust like all "irons".
The backs should be ok however...maybe clean off the rust and then maintain properly.

Betting they are fake or been left out in the weather for some time. No quality irons, PXG, Taylor Made, Callaway, Titleist ect. are going to have the backs rust as bad as you are implying under normal use and care.

Here is an example of PXG fake 0311 GEN1 irons on Ebay:  These are directly from the Chinese producer of these.... zxz golf clubs factory
https://www.ebay.com...6fffe2ad3|iid:1

Here is the link to the same on Aliexpress for this company:
https://www.aliexpre....42bb78dex9lW8l

While these are "new" fake PXG older GEN1 irons, I have seen used fakes like these on Ebay!
I have never seen any model other than the 0311 GEN1 or the 0311/0311T wedges.

And YES I have reported these listings many times to Ebay and PXG...and they remain.

I wanted to follow up on this......My buddy now tells me that the seller said he refinished them because they had been played in the desert and had some wear......Looks to me like they were not refinished, but had the finish removed, or made to be raw, more or less....He tends to buy stuff on ebay without using a lot of caution.
