She has an R1 tip up now. I wonder if it is real?
I saw her R1 tip today while looking at some R1's in comparison to others selling on there, always weeding out the to good to be true people and the Power sellers that have connections I have met and they have real accounts and just are about pure volume for 20 bucks vs making 399 a driver and profits in the 125 dollar range or so! From what I understand as I know a guy out west who does business on ebay and has for 15 years, I am not going to mention his name but will edit the post with his name if he has no problem when I speak to him tomorrow! I know him to an extent and do not want to throw his name around on a forum as I feel that is rude unless it is to help others not buy fakes, this guy is legit but he, from what I understand gets to write off on taxes the final value fees through sales on ebay when doing taxes, plus he is an authorized dealer for a good bit of companies and has his own physical golf store you can go into! Her R1 tip looked real and like i said it could be 50/50 with the products but I am not trusting it!
You know ebay has ruined it for a lot of people trying to do good sales for a nice price from fakes and has changed a lot in the past decade! I do my homework when buying off ebay and I always contact the person and ask to get their credentials to confirm if they claim they are this or that and always read the neutral and negative feedback I can see for the past year! I know a few places on the bay that actually buy bankrupt golf stores or property in general and get the contents in the business or home and sell the equipment dirt cheap as they got everything in the property for dirt cheap and have had a fake pop up hear and there they knew nothing about because it was a used traded in product that the previous shop owner may not have even known was a fake, they did not know golf stuff that well,but gave full refunds even for the return shipping and destroyed the product, not put it for sale again like her and another guy in a thread about this type of thing!
There are people 50-75 percent of the time that are unaware they are even in possession of a fake until someone with experience and knowledge spots it, not always a on purpose deal, but this gal and some others are the ones doing this non stop making a business of it and by golly if they do not know they are fakes by now after my buddy and others have contacted her and the other guy mentioned in a thread similar to this then something is wrong but a good bit like the R1 sleeve mentioned looks legit as can be!
