Looks like counterfeit G400 woods are starting to show up in trade in sections. Came across a fairway wood with a very bright orange weight on the bottom, different front size and style, miss aligned lettering on the bottom of the head, and an obvious sound difference so bad it sounded like banging a metal trash can with a stick. The shaft was completely different Alta shaft and a fake Golf Pride MCC with lines of cord completely exposed down the grip and a pronounced seam. I tried to find information online about these, wanted to see if they were posted about already but I couldn't find anything. If it's still there I'll get some pictures.
