REAL OR FAKE CALLAWAYS RAZR X

14 posts in this topic

on a found a guy kijiji who is offering a set of Callaway Razr X irons. He told me he bought the at GolfGalaxy in Beverton OR.  He gave my the 8 iron to checked out.  They came in individually wrapped plastic bags with a sku # and a bar code. If I called GolfGalaxy does anyone know if they could verify them.  I have read alot lately on counter fit clubs, but looking for some more things to look for to detect if there real of fake.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Get the serial number from them ( usually on the 6 iron ) and get in contact with callaway to verify them

How much is he asking for them?  That will be a big clue. The serial numbers can be faked off of a real set, so even that isn't a sure thing.

Price is not a great determination when dealing with used. He could price them at what the real ones should be priced at used and someone may never know the difference.

True, I'm just saying serial numbers isn't the be-all end-all of finding fakes either.  Serial numbers can be duplicated, prices can be right there with new/used or rediculously cheap, incorrect ferrules, improperly aligned shafts, slightly larger or smaller fonts on the heads, paint fill colors slightly off, lighter overall weight, SW way off, etc......

To the OP - does he have the receipt or other proof of purchase from Golf Galaxy from when he bought them?

He has nothing.  Told me he left the reciept on the plane.  Nothing from the original purchase.  I got into contact wirh callaway today and they cant find the serial number in their database. They said it doesn't mean there fake.  May have been built at in a fitting van or at a demo day.  Also took them into Golftown today and had the guys in there hit em and inspect them.  There opinion is there real or the best knockoffs they have ever seen.  The golftown employee said he wouldn't buy unless I could get the serial number to check out.

Thing Im gonna stay away.  I would be crushed if I got them and found out later they were fake.

Unless he paid cash he should have a credit card receipt or Golf Galaxy should be able to look it up.  I don't know how they are in OR, but in NY Dicks Sporting, Golf Galaxy and Golfsmith have frequent buyer programs where every purchase is recorded and tracked for rewards, promotions, etc.  If he can't provide any form of proof and Callaway can't validate the serial number I'd stay away.

So, he bought a set of Razr's, took them for a plane ride, got out his sales receipt to look at it on the plane and then "forgot" it, didn't take the clubs out of there packaging and he wants to sell the clubs to you?

With that little amount of information I'm just a little bit suspicious.

That's hilarious! I just walked away from that same guy about 1/2 an hour ago, at the Sheraton Cavalier. Very suspicious character. When I said I was calling Callaway, he just left me with the 8 iron in my hand. He called back 10min later, and I told him to come and take it back. How many sketched out kids buy their Dad's a $700 set of irons on a whim? This kid couldn't even afford clothes, and looked like a crackhead.

I'm just kidding - seems like a good guy in a bad circumstance. Having the complicated story doesn't help his cause. They felt good to me, just didn't want to get stuck with fakes like previous poster mentioned.

Thats too funny.  Did you find them on Kijiji for sale.  He was very shady looking probably into the drugs.  Im guessing you didnt buy them?  Also from Calgary?

If callaway can't verify them I would not buy them! I have a set of razr x irons for sale right now and I have the serial numbers off the clubs and the receipt.

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
