Are these authentic PXG irons?  I really like the color combination of the black heads with yellow shafts.

1.  Do they have serial numbers?  If not then they are fakes;
I looked at the listing but did not see S/N...ask the Seller for pic of S/N.

2.  Look at the "FORGED" lettering...is it Italics?  If so, then that is real as many fakes use normal lettering.
These look proper as the letters are in Italics.

Here is an example of fake 0311P irons now available on AliExpress….
(NOTE:  These PXG irons on AliExpress are all solid heads;  not hollow and filled like the real deal!)

Another check is the "W" on the pitching wedge sole.  The real PXG iron will have a W with rounded points, whereas the Fakes have points that are blocked looking (ie the Sellers).  The fakes tend to have fonts that are more BOLD.  Look at the space in the "0" in 0311XF; now look at the same in the 0311P.  More space in the real 0311P.

Based just upon the W formation, I would expect these are Fakes.

I think fake. 0311XF letters look too fat, and the sole weighting has only 6 screws instead of 7.

Good catch!
Certainly in this case there are only 6 screw weights on the sole!  Obviously these are fakes due to that fact.
However, don't assume if it has 7 weights it is then real...…….

These have 7 weights and are fake as all on AliExpress:
These are GEN2 fakes!

One can report them to eBay, and I suggest everyone here do just that (I just reported them to eBay). Near the bottom of the listing there is a link to “Report Item”.  Help hold up integrity by reporting fake items when you see them!

I have reported dozens of PXG fakes to Ebay over the past couple years.

NOT once have I seen the listing removed!

But perhaps if more report them it might help.
