Grisham posted here about some Ebay irons and it became evident that they are indeed FAKES.
http://www.golfwrx.c...8#entry18445768

These were the GEN1 PXG irons and now we are starting to see the GEN2 irons show up in China, ie AliExpress.

These are VERY GOOD copies!  Take a look at these pics and try to tell which is the real and which the fake.  Yes, I noted in the pics which they are, but very difficult and the differences have become much more difficult to discern.

1.  The fakes now have Serial numbers;
2.  The number of screws is correct;
3.  The wedge W looks ok;
4.  The fonts are slimmer and better matching;
5.  The placement appears similar.

BUT.……...
1.  The 0311XF may be further from the top edge in the fake depending upon pic angle;
2.  The PXG symbol may be further from the two toe screws in the fake;
3.  The font in PXG may actually be a bit too thin.

List anything more that you see.  Remember these fakes are cast, solid heads not hollow/filled like the real PXGs.

AND the answer is...………...

Well the FAKES are very good...……...BUT they made a fatal error in these!!

1.  Simply look at the faces and if they have a lower groove that is painted white then they are the fakes.
2.  The real PXG GEN2 0311 XF satin iron faces do NOT have the white groove.
(Note:  The extreme dark GEN2 actually do have the white line.)

Here are the pics

Why would anyone buy PXG irons on EBay? Isn't a big part of their value the custom fitting? Another lesson that golf clubs are one of those items that need to be purchased from a known, trusted seller, even if you have to pay a little more.

Personally, I liked the white line on the Gen 1s and wish they hadn't gotten rid of it.

It's Ping-esque, like a lot of the PXG features due to the engineers.

Thanks for posting all of the info on the fakes.  I sure wouldn't buy a set off ebay, hardly comfortable buying any golf related items on ebay.

Well as I said the real GEN2 PXG in black do have the white lower groove....here ya go.
Unfortunately, these are not real...total fakes.
Very difficult to tell these from the real ones!
Yes, it appears they do have S/N.

PXG GEN 2 0311P …… FAKES!
Again, solid cast heads and they are very close to the real deal.   Expect them on Ebay soon.

PXG heads only should come in plastic with three stickers on them, including the weight of the head.....

To tell the difference, request head weights...they should be close these weights:
These are the "P" heads.....
