Hey All,



I’m seeing a couple AP3s with Flighted PX. These shafts have been discontinued for some time,

so why would a real AP3 have them installed. Especially if they came from Titleist?



https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Titleist-718-AP3-Iron-3-PW-Set-Project-x-5-5-Rifle-flighted-Stiff-RH/173632307121?hash=item286d4abfb1:g:ztgAAOSwrGVb5huq





https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-AP3-718-Iron-Set-4-PW-W-BONUS-3-IRON-Project-X-5-5-R-shafts-8-piece-set/253969934781?hash=item3b21c9a9bd:g:lawAAOSwGUpb4yVh



Titleist does not offer these shafts as upcharges so are these fake?



Been looking for a PX AP3 so that’s the reason I brought this up.

    Both sets are fake.



    PX labels not even close to being authentic.



    Stay away. Stay far away.

    Second that. Plus the shrink wrap on Titleist clubs is almost always very smooth and clean.

    I like that they give the manufactured date. That is impressive

    I guess I should have noticed the chrome project X label. Thx guys!

    Someone bid on that first set, I feel bad for whoever that was.

    the first set is up to 820$?!?! I can't wait for the final price...someone is going to love these clubs once they find out how fake they are.

    The grips are fake, the even mention it in the ad. Staggering

    That second set you linked looks really good if it's a fake. Looking at the back of the hosel, the club head even has the brushed part of the hosel to a tee. Something I don't think counterfeiters would even bother doing...

    I thought so at first too, but the P and the R have rounded inner holes, maybe its the camera angle? But then the seller knowingly put fake grips on them and he even says so?

    You cannot order flighted with AP3s so why were these shop displays? If you owned a shop, why did this guy need to order grips online?

    Why take the chance? But to each his own, if anyone on this forum bought one of these, I would like to know how they ended up.



    For me, I am holding out for some AP3s with Project LZs which is an actual order-able configuration for these clubs. Flighted? These things have been discontinued for some time.

    Are the shafts listed on the titleist shaft fitting page different that the ones on these?

    They offer Project X 5.5 and the labels look the same as the fakes.

    Titliest offers normal Project X 5.5s.



    Flighted 5.5s are not the same.

    (2) things.



    1. Yes, the shafts listed on the Titleist site are different than shafts listed on eBay. Project X =/= Project X Flighted.

    2. The shaft labels listed look nothing like a 'real' PX Flighted. The font is WAY off.



    Here is a real PX Flighted shaft

    correct I have the "Real Ap2's" with 5.5 but non flighted. The font as stated above is way off and the wrappers on the heads are off as well.

    I do not own AP3s myself, so I am not an expert on the heads.

    Sort of the reason why I started this thread as I was looking for some AP3s and then I notice these items.

    I just went to my local golf store and looked at an AP3.

    The SN looked nothing like what was shown in those links.

    Hmm, I cannot say for sure, but it did not look like the ebay links.

    They have multiple 4 irons so I will look at all of them when I can get back over there and take some pics.

    Another 5.5 Flighted w the seller not even showing the shaft band up close.

    But the band is VERY blue which is probably fake.

    I would ask for close up before bidding.
