Possible Ping Vault Putter Fake?


Recommended Posts

Saw this scrolling through eBay. I feel it's a fake but can any experts confirm?


Red flags for me are the face grooves. The color looks to be black instead of the normal 'slate'. The Ping logo on the back cavity is too small compared to other Vault Anser 2's. Ping on the sole and hosel are too thick. Headcover isn't a normal Ping cover. And the cellophane wrap looks cheap. 

 

The seller claims it could be a Japan only model but I didn't think Japan had different face grooves. 

 

This could be a real deal but just wanted to see what everyone else though. TIA.

It may be a Japan only model that came over via DHgate. I'd steer clear.

Thanks all. Definitely wasn't going to buy it since I already have one. Hoping others see this and don't buy it thinking they got some rare putter.
