I need a set of Ping yellow/gold grips and I have hear through the grape vine that Ping is getting out of the grip business. Whether that is true or not Ping grips are terribly hard to find unless you send in your clubs. I was wondering if these 13 pack sets on EBay that come from china are the real deal. 15 years ago I would say they are knockoffs but since
99.9% of everything is made there - I’m not shocked either way. Thoughts?

    Golfworks? Also doubt ping would stop with making grips. They changed over to Tour Velvets/360s but the ID grips and ping man putter grips are still popular.

    I wouldn’t buy them.
    I just got burned on some fake Winn grips. They looked pretty close to the genuine article but the wrappers were not right and the grips stank (obviously not the same compound).
    Pay a little more and get genuine from a solid retailer.

    While lots of golf equipment is now made in China, virtually no legit golf equipment is sold directly from China.

    For grips most of them are made in Taiwan actually. So if they coming from China almost certainly fake.
