TM Burner TP "8XXXXX" serial # vs. "TXXXXX" serial #?

While I frequently agree with the master-dissenter...
I don't know about this one. If it was advertised as Tour Issue with an 8xxxxxxx B stamp and came from the tour (which B stamp indicates it did and often happens - retail stock, tested for tour, etc.) then why isn't it still tour issue? It sounds like the product was not misrepresented in any way at all and you didn't do enough of your own homework on the front end.
That being said, there is a larger questions here... is that type of product (retail on tour) "tour issued"? I say yes it is. It's not TOUR ONLY, but is tour issued.

They do this when they pull a retail head and test it for tour use. most likely this was a head that was tested for a mini tour guy, so really it has the retail CG location just was tested to make sure it was conforming. i would try to get your money back if you were buying it under the impression it was tour issue, because the tour heads do have slightly different cg locations.

Any club with a B stamp was meant to be used in a PGA, top level USGA, or college event. These heads are 100% the same as a TXXXXX serial head just stamped differently. The heads are measured and weighted.
With comments like that you are going to get a ton of sellers with disputes filed and paypals locked. I know for 100% certainty this club pictured below came from the Tour department at TM.

Only way to ensure is knowing the source of your head, or getting a build sheet with matching serial.
If you aren't getting a fresh head built to the specs you want, then save your money, and get fitted for a retail head.
The only TM head I can distinguish is a 282.
