Did I buy a fake x12?

So a few weeks ago I was at a established local golf shop and they had an x12 for a great deal so I bought it. Ordered heavier weights for it and noticed the existing 15’s were hollow! I weighed them and they are 8g each! I have compared this side by side to real 15g weights and the font is different also. The putter looks spot on though but I then found x12’s on that stupid Chinese fake site. What do you think?

Look at the bottom of a REAL Phantom PUTTER... the sole has grooves in the real one, yours doesn't. Most likely fake. Sorry

Not sure why you are going back to something this old. But I did determine it is real. The little milling ports underneath the weights are to even out the head weight. I compared it to a new in plasti

Why not call Cameron and email pics.

 

The weirdest thing to me is the drilling under the weight ports. That speaks to me like someone trying to lose weight and leave it looking stock. I’d say it’s real with aftermarket work.

Scotty does that in all his putters that removable weights.

I compared it to a new in plastic one at a retail store and had a few store owners and the guys at the Cameron Collector all confirm it is real.

Even with weights that are half of the advertised weight?

Looks real to me. How does it putt? That should tell you.

it rolled it great! loved the bright alignment lines and high moi, i just needed something with a little more toe flow. Switched to an T5w 1.5 and had 10 rounds at 5under par or better! i've been a loyal Cameron user since my first TEI3 NP2 i got for Christmas in 1997. I've seen some fakes before, this was not a fake, it just didn't work for me.
