3 wood real or fake?

recently bought a new 3 wood from the internet and it was delivered from hong kong at a very good price so im starting to think it must be fake. it is a 910F and there is the number 1898036 on the clubhead could u tell me what you know about this club.

Hi Ian,

I'm afraid from the sounds of it that you have purchased a counterfeit product, as this is a serial number that has been compromised several times. The number you quote is a US serial number, which left our facility with reference to a 910D2 driver.

Could I ask you to email our brand protection team (ip@acushnetgolf.com) detailing what you purchased, where you purchased it from and when? It would be useful if you could provide any other relevant details about the transaction at the same time.

Unfortunately, the adage "If it looks too good to be true, then it usually is" holds true in these situations and the best way to avoid purchasing counterfeit goods is to purchase via an authorised Titleist retailer.

Kind regards

Hi Neil

Just following on from the above post I have a quick question? I've put my 910Fd in the bag for the first time this last week, which I had last Christmas, and I've noticed it has 647654 on the head. I know where it came from and the shop is an authorised Titleist dealer so I wondered why it would be stamped? Could it be that it was just ordered to my spec, although not fitted? It's a 15° with a Diamana kai'li 75 mid s shaft.

Cheers

Ian

Hi Ian,

That indicates that it is a custom order - this could be as little a change as the grip being different from stock or that the swingweight has been altered. To all intents it is a stock product, but these minor changes would make it a custom order.

Thanks

Hi Neil,

Recent new register addition to the Titleist team and following on from the above regarding counterfeit clubs, I recently purchased a set of AP1 (712) GRAPHITE 65i from a friends colleague at a good price.

All the clus have the same register number 825241 on the "ferrule", are they genuine.  ?

Hi Alex,

Welcome to Team Titleist!

The serial number that you listed refers to a set of AP1 (712), with Titleist Tour AD Graphite shafts in R-flex, standard loft and lie, with Tour Velvet grips.

Hope this helps.

Hi Neil,

Thanks very much assumed they were o.k but you never know

They are a delight to use and will now book into Kingsacre to sort out the woods .

Kind regards
