FAKE R11

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 

My friend is in china and he is getting me the R11 for 80euro and a scotty cameron newport 2 putter for 30 euro 

What the chances they are not fake?

And my friend wouldnt know if or not it is fake .dont mind if they are cos thats pritty cheap but there goin in the bin if they are no good...................

I'd guess about 0%.  Does Scotty mfg in China?

I'd say the chances of them not being fake are about 1 in 10,000 or less.

 

I'd give 50/50 that they will be somewhat useful and probably 90% they are in the bin in 12 months, but that is based on the bin in my garage!

Yeah, they're fake... and you shouldn't be good with it no matter how cheap they are.

Why would you want to pay anything for fakes unless you just plan to showcase them or try to sell them to someone else as real?

I think people are simply using logic: at those rates, they're not gonna be authentic.

You can not buy a real Cameron or R11 in china at any price.... Even the so call "authorized " stores sell fakes because the margins are huge.

30 euros for a legit scotty......what golfer would ever think this is a legit/real scotty cameron? so fake. maybe someone who is in denial thinking they have found a great deal. please don't waste your money.

To the OP;  I'd love to see pics of the R11 he got you. 

 

Or the Cameron for that matter.

I guess I don't understand your point.  There is no doubt in my mind they'll be counterfeit (fake).  This seems like a torrential waste of money, unless you're primary concern is hitting like a Melvin and looking like you've got top-notch gear.

 

The products you'll receive may look like an R11 or SC Newport, but will perform terribly.   110 Euros is not 'cheap' either (equivalent to ~ $150 US Dollars).  For this amount of money, you could buy a genuine clubs that are engineered and tested to perform. 

 

So... what's in it for you?

Superficially they'll look OK.

The problem is obviously the insides and the shafts. The driver will not perform well.

As far as the putter goes, as long as the loft and lie are OK, it would probably be OK. IT's not as if there's that much technology there.

It seems to me that apart from supporting an illegal and immoral industry, the OP, seems to want to impress his golfing friends more than he wants clubs that work.

More disturbing is the idea that he indicates that he's not even sure they are fake. There is no possibiity that they are genuine.

I got an email from Nigeria the other day.  Not sure if the millions reserved for me are legit.......

You may consider forwarding it to the original poster?  Sounds like he enjoys a gamble.

I was referring more to the driver than the putter.  Yeah, I suppose putters would be a bit easier to "mask".  The obvious shortcoming of fakes is the performance. 

 

I'm about positive that a fake R11 would have a couple pretty obvious, yet subtle flaws to it in regards to appearance alone, let alone the obvious differences in performance. 

 

Hence why I would like to see pics of the "cheap" R11. 

 

And yes, why anyone would want to still spend decent money on something that they probably know themselves to be fake is beyond me.  It's illogical.

haha.  It's only 110 euro.  Isn't that about $150? 

 

You have no problem throwing away that kind of money?  Ok.........

 

And I certainly am not worked up.  You do whatever you want. 

 

(I'd still be interested in seeing pics)
