How To Spot Fake Golf Pride New Decade Multicompounds
Comparison Pics of genuine versus counterfeitI was checking one of our local on-course shops and found they were selling Golf Pride New Decade Multicompounds.
At first glance, they looked like the real deal. But upon closer inspection, I noticed some flaws which leads me to believe they are counterfeit. I then Googled about counterfeits and yes this grip model has been copied a lot.
I decided to post some of these pics to help you guys spotting the genuine article from the imitation. I guess it really is important to purchase from an authorized dealer. The fakers have definitely upped the ante, as you can see in the first three photos - the originals and the fakes are virtually indistinguishable.
For two photos without comments, can you guys spot which ones are genuine and which are not?
The other photos have my comments.
I also brought out the green for reference because the green had the text in the grip cap reversed - same for all the other colors except the red one.
Later, I will post pictures about the weight difference of the grips if there are.
