counterfeit AD333 or refurbished

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I play the Srixon AD333 ball. Yesterday I bought a new box on a golf sale.


I noticed that the design of the box was different. When I opened the box, the print on the ball was also a little different. I also noticed that there were some characters (72 and LE) moulded in some dimples and that the design of the dimples was different.

I think these are not genuine AD333 balls but either they are counterfeit, refurbished or an older version.

Can someone shed some light here.

kind regards,

Koen

I've seen a lot of golf balls with things in the dimples. Pro V1x, etc.

Do you have some "known good" AD333 to compare them to?

It's unlikely someone would counterfeit a $25 pack of balls. They usually target the high-end ones.

Bridgestone has changed the design of their boxes a few times over the past few years. I wouldn't worry about it.

Golf ball manufacturers tend to change the box and some of the print on the ball from one model year to the next so you can tell if you are playing a 2011 version or the 2013 version for example. For instance, the newest Pro V1 balls have gray arrows around the side stamp where as the previous model had black arrows.

Wow, I learned all about counterfeit clubs from some threads on this website ... but I was not aware that they were also out there making counterfeit balls!

Yikes!

Thank you for your comments.

played a round with them yesterday. Sound and feel were the same as with the 'known good' AD333. I had the feeling that they didn't go as far as I'm used to, I guess that was caused by me not hitting them as solidly as I should....
