A. FAKE: Look at the shape & position of the Titanium muscle. Nothing like the real thing.

 

 
B. REAL: Check the definition on the TiMuscle, size and position in relation to the sole. Not much in common with the fakes.

Those aren't even a good attempt at a fake.  There's too much that looks wrong and sloppy.

True. But stick them on ebay without closeup 'photos and at a low price and some poor soul is gonna get stung. What made it obvious to me was the sloppy paintwork on the Mizuno emblem.

That's why you dont buy stuff like that on Ebay. Stick to either stores, or online reputable online retailers

I wouldn't say you shouldn't buy from eBay alltogether. There are many reputable sellers there.
Some retail stores also operate on eBay.

Rockbottomgolf, Global Golf, 3 Balls and I'm sure many more legitimate businesses have ebay stores.  I just think it's important to watch who you buy from on ebay.
