Just bought this new M3 from tgw.com which is an authorized online retailer from taylormade.com.  I noticed that the line on under the M3 logo isn't straight.  Could it be fake or defective?  Or am I just being paranoid?  I just wouldn't think that taylormade would sell a club with a small defect like that.  The rest of it looks good to me.

I've bought from TGW for years. They're legit. I think just something TM quality control missed. I wouldn't worry about it.

Really? Why doesn't wrx just create a "is this authentic or not" thread to keep this crap from coming in here every day?

TM just doesnt have good quality control. If you arent happy, send it back. TGW can send it back to TM as defective due to some dumb paint job. They have heard crazier, Im sure.

Its purely cosmetic. Why would TM not sell this club? Can you post more pictures? It doesnt even look that bad!

Bingo. Using the correct forum for the correct type of question. And its not even a question the search function could have answered.
I think getting advice from guys who are sitting at the computer in their underwear while taking a break from porn is a very solid way to choose clubs. - bluedot

With the driver costing $500, I would at least expect them to put the sticker on the right way

you're good, as others have sad purely cosmetic.  i bought the spider arc literally the first day it came out ($300+ after customization from the tour department) and the paint between the head and the face insert was shotty.  they offered to replace it real quick so im sure they'd do the same for you. again, no one would have EVER seen it, no impact on play, can't even see it if you looked for it, but i knew it was there and i knew how much i just paid...
