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!

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.

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?

Or the Cameron for that matter.



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)

    • Found this link looking at Tiger and his new swing. Michael Jordan makes some very good points about why the term "GOAT" doesn't make sense. Smart guy.
    • I think we were.  Yes, this is a GREAT feature, long overdue Some people even make Snaps (snapchat) while driving.   
    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
