Fake golf clubs in retail stores ? How to avoid them ?

Recommended Posts

I've gone to this local golf retail shop in MA.

Since it's not a big chain retail store like golfsmith, I started to worry about the set of golf clubs that I purchased.

I didn't receive any official warranty cards or anything like it (is it normal ?).

I started to worry, because I recently heard about many fake clubs sold all over...

It's a pretty big local store...

Anyways, is there anything that i can do to ensure that these golf clubs are legit ?

or should I go to a store like golfsmith ?

I bought women's callaway xhot golf clubs..

Thanks

Contact the manufacturer and ask them if the store is authorized. Provide a serial number from the clubs. They should be able to tell you if you're good to go or not.

I've heard of people ending up with fake clubs from eBay but a local retail store? Geez....you can't be too careful I guess.

Thanks, I called them and that store was not in the list of the authorized stores...

That's why I posted this writing up here.

Today, I called Callaway and verified that these serial numbers are legit.

(of course, the serial numbers alone are not sufficient, but they're pretty close I think...)

The best way to avoid replica is to go on the Manufacturers website and look at the retailers list.

When it's too cheap it's also a great indicator.
