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.

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)

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
