Hey guys, I noticed a seller on eBay named shaftking2021 generally has some awesome deals on shafts and was wondering if anyone can attest that they are a legit seller? 901 reviews with 100% feedback is a great sign but just wanted to double check if the golfwrx community has any feedback or experience with the seller. Thanks!

how many postive/negative feedback do they have? how long have they been on ebay?

 

A lot of knockoff sellers will have short histories with minimal # of feedback.

 

With 2021 in the username I would say you are certainly taking SOME chance with a limited history. Also, I wouldn't trust anyone named Shaftking

Hahah the name is definitely iffy. 

 

I've checked their feedback/reviews on eBay and they have been selling on eBay since 2011 with 100% positive feedback on 974 reviews. 

 

Just wanted to see if anyone on here has bought from them and had any problems or authenticity concerns with the shafts they purchased.

Looks pretty legit to me. The 1 neutral feedback was based solely on packaging. Anyone that maintained these numbers through the pandemic though definitely knows what they are doing.

The guy is an absolute scumbag. Do not buy from him!

I tried to make a purchase through this guy and I can say for certain that he is a giant scumbag. I wouldn’t buy a single thing from him - ever. 

Really, what happened? I bought a Diamana D+ Limited 60TX off him. The service and shaft were perfect.

His listing was a set price as a “buy it now” or best offer. I simply sent a few offers that were immediately declined. This is not uncommon and not a big deal but I was curious to see if there was an amount he would sell it for so I sent a note asking if there was a bottom dollar he was looking for. His response was, “Probably the dumbest question I’ve been asked.”  
 

Of course, that didn’t sit well with me and I let him know and that I would include that feedback in my review. I then bought the shaft at the buy it now price. his next response was, Oh no Mommy, the big dumb man outsmarted me. What am I going to do? Oh wait he's the big dumb man. He doesn't know s*** about eBay. This is great.“

 

He then immediately cancelled my order to ensure he couldn’t get any negative reviews. 
 

Naturally, I was more than frustrated that someone would treat a customer (potential or otherwise) like that, so I reached out to my club builder to see if he thought they were real (I should have done this first). His response was, “Yeah, real fake. I can’t get them at these prices and there is no way this guy has a deal that would allow him to sell all these brand new shafts at these prices. If he does, there would be no reason every club builder in the world wouldn’t buy from him. There is a reason he is priced so far below market value and it’s because it’s BS.” 
 

Now, I fully admit I cannot prove these are fake but in my opinion, the guy is a scumbag and I’ll never do business with him. That being said, you can bet your last dollar that I’m going to buy one of these shafts and dig into this and expose this a-hole if these are indeed fake.

What makes these shafts fake?

As I said in my previous post - I can’t say they are fake. I simply said in my opinion, based on my interactions with him, the guy is a scumbag. I also pointed out that a club builder I’ve worked with for years does not believe these are real based on the price he is getting. He would be netting $200 after eBay and PayPal fees, which is less than what my builder can buy them for.  I will be buying one to see if it is fake and I’ll report back.

I purchased a Diamana D+ Limited 60TX from him and the shaft is legit. But from the experience that leftycabe had with him, it looks like the customer service is a bit iffy.

This guy may have a good lawyer.

Did you think they were fake when you made your initial offer that wasn’t accepted?

Lots of businesses sell things at losses. He could also be getting them at lower than distributor prices somehow like getting them from another buyer who gets them in much much larger order QTYs.

 

At any rate people who message sellers and ask 'whats your lowest price' are usually bad buyers. When I sell on ebay I always completely ignore those messages or inform the person my lowest is what I've already set in the listing and asking me about it wont change it.

As I pointed out, I should have reached out to my builder before. I have not said I think he is selling any fakes. I understand what you are trying to do and the point you are trying to make. 


You’ve stated a SUSPICION “ to see if he thought they were real “ and repeated a potential libel from a 3rd party worldwide via the Web = snog, marry, avoid.

 

In some countries, you could only defend a libel claim by proving a fake was supplied or offered. Deep waters.

this is ridiculous. I’m not hear for some Bs legal claim. I simply said the guy was a scumbag. If you want to get into the BS legal jargon, go for it. This is an opinion forum, not a legal discussion. I don’t care if anyone thinks his stuff is real or not. Buy whatever you want from whoever you want.  I simply said my interaction with him was not good.
