I'm not the best at spotting fake grips on the bay. Anyone with a better eye than me know the authenticity of these?

    I also am not great at spotting fakes, but basd on his negative feedbacks I'd be a bit cautious.

    What is this “feedback” thing you guys speak of?

    Can’t tell if you’re being a smart *** or not, but it’s the sellers reviews on eBay

    Judging by the lettering on the butt, I would say fake.
    The lettering on genuine Z's is much narrower, and the Z-GRIP in the bottom is centered. Also, there should be no flash around the center hole.

    Don’t promises of feedback returning count for anything?

    There's money to be had with fake grips?

    Considering they likely cost less than 50 cents per grip to make and they sell a batch of 10 of them for over $60...I'd say yes.
