jdm counterfeits on the web

the fakes are getting more blatant, some look real some don't. part of the reason why some look real is because the photos are REAL! once item is shipped they will do a switch and you will get something different. same swap modus operandi is done in eBay as well. be careful and if its too cheap its a fake. usual tells on the bay are high end shafts mixed with fake heads. so many guys have been tricked.

Some of the club members here have ordered Titleist wedges (SM6) for $99 dollars a set (!!!) and actually think they are playing the real thing.
One of them also bought a Scotty Buttonback for $140.
Apparently Katana iron sets can be had for $569 or something like that.....
I can understand that such blatant forgeries be openly marketed when there are people who buy them and have convinced themselves that they are the real thing.

Those UT's look well made (shape wise ) .... If I didn't just compare it with a pic of a real one,  I would have been fooled.
