Fake Golf Pride New Decade Multicompound Grips
Posted 18 February 2013 - 05:30 PM
The smell is sour vs rubber, the feel is slightly harder, smoother, and less tacky, and the upper portion of the grip's textured channels are deeper than the real NDMC's.
Here are some photos I took of the culprit and two authentic grips (purchased from Golf Galaxy and a direct from Titleist install respectively).
Now my only worry is the authenticity of the shaft. The seller is highly reputable and I even searched on the forums here before buying my first shaft from him and everything sounded good. I've since bought a second shaft for a different driver from him as well and that grip seems to be authentic (just a standard GP tour velvet). But the fake grip is troublesome.

One thing I noticed with the Fakes is how much thinner the material is. Give them a flick the fakes will fold over with barely any force, while the real deal stays
Thank you for giving a detailed post like this!

Where did your's ship from in Canada? Mine was purchased off a Canadian reseller as well.
The real ones don't smell "funny" they smell like Rubber... the Fakes smell like crappy paint.

In my case the seller never requested shipping them back... they are terrible grips which they paid likely $2-$2.50 per grip. In a set of 13 if they sell them for around $90 USD so around $7 per grip. If they sell 10 sets they're making $57 - $65 per set.
IMO I wouldn't purchase another set of NDMC's off eBay unless I knew 100% they were legit by additional pictures. The set I received even had the exact same bar codes/UPC number as the real deal.

VISA told me I am not to send the grips back to the seller because I would be participating in the act.
I actually just found a great deal of REAL Golf Pride grips from RockBottomgolf.com masters code came to $8.46 each with 1-5day shipping.

So you "work" in the golf industry yet condone the purchasing of counterfeit product that hurts the industry? I hope, for the sake of anyone directly affected by your work, that you aren't handling orders or any paperwork as your grammar hasn't improved in the two months since your first very strange post.
