Just bought a brand new set of TaylorMade r7 TP irons.  I'm 99% certain they are legit but I would like to run the serial number (which is on the 7 iron) with TM to confirm.

Does anyone know if they will do this?  Do I just call the customer service 800 number?  Can I email the question?

Thanks.

Just call the general TM customer service number.  

Yes - they will confirm if the serial number is legit and what the set makeup should be (in my case r7 TP irons, 3-PW, SG S300, TM golf pride tour velvet grips).

Yes and they are friendly about it. They asked me what specific set I had (called about irons and a rescue), and when it matched up, they said enjoy the purchase. Nice people over at TM...

It is rare, but sometimes counterfieters will go to golfshops and copy serial numbers for drivers sitting on the rack.  Then they put the # on the head or hosel and then when/if people call in, they get the typical "yep, that club checks out."

Just something to think about.  Be sure to check out the paintfill, markings, scoring lines, etc, if you think your club is a fake.

Keep in mind that a legitimate serial number does not guarantee that your set is legitimate as the numbers can be copied from legitimate sets. Kind of like a legitimate license plate on a stolen car.

I am aware of that.

Sorry to bring up this old post...but no need to make a new one.

For R7 TP iron owners out there, is the paintfill in the back of your irons orangish or more yellowish?  I've noticed these two different colors in the cavities, with the orangish colored ones coming from ebay.  I checked out a set in Golfsmith, and it was more yellow.

If you check the Taylormade website, the color shows more orangish.

I picked up a set off Ebay and just trying to avoid fakes here, as I have a couple red flags.  The golf pride grips smell just a bit like tire rubber and the cavity shows the orangish paintfill.  They came from WillPGA.

Thanks!
