How rare are Ping BeCu from Japan?

Hi all,



If you saw my last thread, you know I have a few older clubs that I’m looking for information on, in which google wasn’t much help.



I have 2 ping becu wedegs, zing and a zing 2. Serial numbers end with two letters and last letter is J. From my searching, these were assembled in Japan. Is this rare to find in the states? Google didn’t have many people asking about Japan Ping clubs so I’m not sure. Note the shaft bands are red and blue instead of red and black. Not sure how well this shows up in the photos. Second shaft band says “Japan”



If they are not all that rare, the fact that they are brand new (with some shop wear) makes them pretty rare at least!



Thanks for your thoughts on these. This is my first time seeing these

    you can call Ping on Monday and give them the serial number and they should still have it their computer files. Plus they may be able to tell you where they were built.

    Thanks guys, I already checked the numbers with Ping. They are legit. I’m just curious if they happen to be very common to come across, or if they happen to be pretty rare to find in the states.



    Thanks

    Pretty sure importing Ping clubs into the US from Japan is not "very common." The opposite I'd say. Not sure why anyone would do that all all other than maybe some service man or the like.

    I have run across BeCu wedges in Japan shops, but never really looked for them in US. Never really paid attention if they had made in Japan markings when I saw them. In terms of rarity, I've probably seen a couple dozen or so Eye 2/Zing/Zing 2 wedges in past 8-10 years of casual browsing at multiple shops in Japan. So not impossible to find, but also not very common.
