PXG Anyone Actually Seen or Owned Fakes?

I thought I was fortunate to be in right place at right time and picked up a set of Gen 1PXGs. There were 2 weights missing so I bought aftermarket ones but they were too big. I sent to PXG and they told it was a fake. They were shipping it back and I got an email saying their legal team had it and would be in contact.



That was 10 days ago. I have sent several emails and have been told they haven’t decided what to do.

Here are my questions. All but one club swing weight right at D 1/2. I have a loft and lie machine and could adjust these easily. Not as soft as Mizuno but no problem adjusting. They did not have foam filler but one weight port is open and these are hollow.



Wouldn’t fake be cast and hard to adjust and not be hollow? I think something is off but why is PXG holding it ? Anyone who has seen fakes know if they are hollow? Thanks.

    Do you have any photos of the irons you sent into PXG? Where did you purchase the irons? Sharing any photos you may have and the purchase listing would help.

    Will post pictures or try to tomorrow. A guy brought them in a local shop to trade them in. I don’t actually know him but he like me is a regular at this shop. I also know he is a policeman say I thought he bought at a good price. I gave him more than shop was going to give in trade.



    I did read post listed above. Mine have rounded W and forged is in italics. These do have different color paintfil that he did. I just don’t think fakes would be hollow but that is just a hunch. I also think this has PXG puzzled. Don’t know why they won’t ship it back. I can understand they don’t want me selling but is it illegal for me to own them?

    I think I remember someone scratching off some paint from a few heads and there were PING logos underneath.

    I’d be surprised if they return the club(s). Most manufacturers destroy fakes to keep them out of the market. Hope things work out for you. Why don’t you contact the seller and work something out with him?

    Ok here are a few pictures. To me the W looks rounded on edges. Tried to get picture of weight port that shows it hollow. Same port on all clubs are this way. Others have solid back.

    Also just cpm’d shafts and there is 3-4 gap between clubs. I was told these are Rifle 5.5s but no bands. I wouldn’t think they would put real shafts in fakes and would also think fake shafts would com all over the place. But at this point don’t know what to think.



    I have seen seller at shop several times but not since I bought them.

    Q. Do they have serial numbers on the hosel? All pxg clubs have s/n.



    Q. The "W" appears to be the font on the fakes....bold not standard.



    Nothing inside...fakes as the real gen1 have material inside.

    If you look closely the clubs in the last picture of that listing they actually have the red pant fill.



    ....and I don’t understand something. If they are hollow they 100% fake. Everyone understands that, right?



    PXG has every right to destroy them. If they were cool about it they would say they are sorry and offer a nice discount on some new ones as a type of reward.

    Thanks for the help. I am willing to bite the bullit as I am pretty sure guy trading them in didn’t know they were fake. He is a regular, a policeman. My son is a firefighter and not saying there aren’t bad ones, but I will give them benefit of the doubt.



    If PXG wants to keep it that is fine. I wouldn’t play them and would not try to sell them. I live in an area with abundant copperheads. With spring not far away I have several new snake killers. Lol.



    Just hate this is where golf is headed. I know there are fakes on most high end clubs. But with price of PXGs, maybe more want to try to counterfeit them. In long run it really hurts resale on these in comparison to other club lines.

    Bought a set of 0311 irons, brand new on Ebay, and thought the deal was too good to be true and it was. Got to looking at them and they have the closed top 4 iron font. Paint job was a little sloppy...white paint splattered in grooves other than the bottom groove...and then the tell tale undersized grips which I've seen on fake Titleist MB irons in the past. Going through the return process now. Seller claims he won them in an auction and sold them because he's left handed which could be true based on his past sales/purchases being left handed clubs.

    Do the 0311xf irons have a serial number on every hosel? (5-GW)
