    I've bought shafts and grips from him, maybe one club, always positive in my experience. Looks like he gets a lot of liquidation stock or excess inventory, because once in a while there will be a ton of the same club, and then they're gone. Previous discussions about him have been mostly positive from what I recall.

    I also had a good experience with him. I think there was another thread that stated he inadvertently sold a batch of fake clubs that were tucked in with a lot he bought and resold. Not sure on that though. <br />

    You are covered by Paypal and eBay either way so with that much positive feedback I wouldn't be too concerned

    There are so many threads asking if this guy is legit on here. I think one uneducated buyer probably just wanted a refund and left him that one negative feedback about fake items. I have bought from him and he is 100% legit.

    Legit. Has some hard to find stuff and sells most everything at auction, which can be a great deal if what you want isn't well known.

    Buyer beware! Ksouth9 is selling fake stuff. I have checked his 2015 Adams golf Idea Tech Hybrids and the 2014 adams golf xtd driver, against some at the local pro shop which is an Adams golf authorized retailer. They were almost identical but the font of the serial numbers was slightly smaller and were slightly thicker. Also the shafts were fake which we only realized by looking at them with a magnifying glass. The font was ever so slightly thicker and felt slightly different to the touch. The grips (I'm assuming) were also fake because they had a very strong rubber smell where as the real ones didn't, and lastly the head covers had a strong "spray paint" like smell but other than the smell they were completely identical. The 6-pw didn't have any serial numbers (which is normal for this set) so they were indistinguishable from the real ones, but once we proved the 4 and 5 hybrids to be fake,there seemed to be no reason to continue looking for evidence of the short irons authenticity. Also another strange thing, the two hybrids that I have had identical serial numbers, but the two separate brand new packages that they opened for me at the store had different numbered serial numbers on the hybrids from the same set, but we weren't certain if that is normal or not. Regardless, the size and shape of the serial numbers were an absolute smoking gun in terms evidence to prove the authenticity (or lack thereof) and I will put sum pictures on here when I get a chance. There were several differences on the driver, including the serial number size shape and shade of gold, and many things stood out on the fake shaft. I will post those picks when I get a chance. Lastly due to the non cooperation from adams golf (which is now Taylormade) I am unable to "prove" to Ebay's standards that they are indeed counterfit, so I am forced to return them to the seller in order for my refund. So if you buy either of these items from him you are going to possibly receive my returned fake clubs.

    I'll crack you over the head with my VR pro combos I bought from Ksouth and see if you can tell me if they really are an authentic forged iron.

    I recommend anyone who buys anything from him takes thier club to an authorized retailer (i.e. the local pro shop) and simply compare the two, specifically the serial numbers and the weight. If I knew how to put pictures on here I would simply show you the difference based on my only two purchases...

    Adams having heads with the same serial is nothing new. Nothing looks off in your pics.

    I have had nothing but good service from him. And as for the "differences" you are alluding to, I say they are nothing more than differences in production date or place.

    Like I said, the Xtd driver was alot easier to spot... And the serial numbers on the 2015 Hybrid Irons are alot more distinguishable from each other in person then this picture (the color size and feel) but the 2 and 4 at the beginning are slightly smaller and the thicker on the club to the right. The shaft and club head in the first two pictures are undeniably different, showing you my first hand counterfit experience with Ksouth9<br />
    . That's all I wanted to show people who think about buying from Ksouth9. And judging from the last couple posts, I suppose this is the part where a bunch of angry guys start "trolling" and say that I'm the one being a "troll", and as for everyone else, I hope it helps someone not get ripped off.<br />
    <br />
    By the way the fake driver is the top shaft in picture one, and the two fake club heads are the right clubs in pictures 2 and 3.

    I don't believe those are counterfeit by any means. If it was a different production run some things may be a little different looking. Maybe someone who is a expert can chime in and tell you otherwise they look fine. What happened when you filed a claim? What did he have to say?
