hey guys, so i recently purchased a titleist 913 f 15* blue stiff shaft from this ebay seller: http://myworld.ebay.com/tmac4110/&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2754
anyway i originally tried the club at a demo day at my local driving range and fell in love, was killing the ball long and straight. so me being my normal self looked for the fairway wood on ebay hoping to find a great deal on it. ( i was very careful to pick the right seller because i have done tons of research and read tons of stories about people buying fake clubs)
luckily i found this club slightly used being sold for around $175. although i was cautious of the low price, i did my research on the seller and found no red flags so i went ahead and bought the club anyway.
the club arrived 5 days after purchasing it (on a friday) and looked great out of the box. so far i was very happy with my purchase because everything looked and felt real.
the next day (yesterday) i took the club to a shop to get it re-gripped (it had a tour wrap midsize which i replaced with a ndmc whiteout std size). after waiting the appropriate amount of time to let the grip dry i went to the range to test out my new toy.
suffice it to say i was not pleased with the club. it didnt feel all that different from the original club i demoed at the titleist demo day however every ball i hit was low and not at all what i was expecting. it is very possible that i just had an off day with my swing and this could all be in my head but i just wanted to hear your guys' opinion on whether or not the club is fake?????
the club its self has the titleist authentic silver hologram sticker at the top of the shaft however it doesnt have any of the other stickers that (in my experience with titleist clubs) come on the shaft such as the black sticker at the bottom of the shaft that says the club was assembled in the states. now it is very possible that the seller or previous owner just took them off because he or she didnt like how they looked but it kind of made me start to worry if the club was actually authentic.
if any of you guys have any info or ideas as to what i should do please let me know. anything will help
ps the seller has a 14 day return period so please let me know asap so it is possible to return this if the club is in fact fake.
