Fake or Real? Titleist PRO V1s

From what I can gather these would be 2009 Prov1s. However when I look up the image of the case they are some issues. It does not say New next to Prov1 and the bottom right corner picture is black and white not in color? The titleist script is white and not reflective. And last thing is it’s in plastic wrap?  Local guy selling just seems off to me but wanted to see if anyone could verify.

I once bought a lot of several dozen ProV1s on eBay and they were fake. Ended up getting money back and all that so it's not a personal horror story, but was a great lesson in fake ProV1s.

 

The boxes were shrink wrapped. I know ProV1 boxes very well and these actually felt a little smaller -- and when I put one up next to a real box, I was right. Reading around the box, there were typos, off-looking fonts and just some strange language in a few spots. These were ProV1s but the boxes even said ProV1x in the small type on the sides. As for the balls, I put a couple in my hand (heyo!) and they absolutely felt different and had a different clicking sound compared to two authentic balls. Didn't even want to hit them, so I didn't. 

 

I've played ProV1s for many years and bought/sold many, many dozens, so again the fakes were obvious to me. But I could see where these could easily be passed off as real to a casual golfer, and that's pretty scary.
