Fake SIM Max?


Recommended Posts

Just bought a SIM driver off eBay (seller had good feedback and it was priced well).  Just got it and I’m not sure if it’s the real thing.  The serial number seems etched onto the hosel, but looking at the face of the club, the screw holes are painted on.  Is that a giveaway?  I’m going to return this regardless, but I’ve attached some pics.  What does everyone else think?

It is a fake.  Taylormade never paints the speed injected ports.  The real drivers have actual ports with torx screw slots.

Wow, that's so wack.  Message the seller and tell him to refund you immediately or you will report him or her to ebay.  I was sent ProV1x balls years ago.  They were horrendously bad for counterfeits.  Messaged the seller with pics comparing his to authentic ones and he apologized and immediately refunded me no questions asked.  He didn't want me to report him and leave him bad feedback.

Thanks all.  I just reported it to ebay.  Dont want this guy stringing me along for weeks saying he'll refund the money.

Don't forget to send them comparison pics of yours vs. the real deal that way they have proof to go after the seller.

I took it to the range and something seemed off.  Didn’t have the same flight as my M3.  
 

the ****** is trying to fight me on taking the return, of course.  Says he thinks I am trying to keep the authentic club he sent and send back my fake.  Unbelievable!!  Any tips to make sure I get my money back?

Hi OP @Titleist212: Are you able to give us details ie name of eBay seller (ie as a PSA, to help us avoid the risk of buying from same seller)? Wasn’t sure if is allowed/against forum rules here? Thanks

So spill how was the flight and distance? 

 

For sure to answer your issue...thats a typical tactic on Ebay for scamming.  Google search "eBay customer service" then elect ask eBay to step in.  This will get you on your way.  You will need your item information (in your purchase history), tap see return details, tap ask eBay to step in. They will take 48 hours to review your claim, and then step in with email to let you know the outcome. When the case is closed in your favor, the refund will show with in another 48hours.

In his Ebay ad does he have pictures of a authentic SIM Max or does he have pics of the one he sent you ?

If he posted pictures of that auction screen shot them immediately.  I bet the face shots are obscure or out of focus.  I would definitely give him a negative feedback.

Watch this video pertaining to the M6.  I am sure the performance will match the fake M6.

I don’t think pics can be altered at the end of the auction.  Not sure.
