I wouldn't touch that one with a 10ft. pole. I'd say there is no more than a 50/50 chance it's real. Seller has low feedback and has only sold FT-5's and Odyssey putters, 2 of the most common to be fakes on Ebay. Check Callaway pre-owned and Global Golf first.

Not really, he's using the same pic for the other one he's selling. They all do that. Believe me, you're better off paying little more for one you know for sure is real.

well I went to the Callaway site and just purchased my new driver. :D


This will be the first good club I have in my bag. Now im looking for a decent set of irons for around 250 or less any ideas guys. I think I want blades, sometimes with a nice feel.

If you go blades, look at the Tommy Armour Silver Scots. I have them and love them and they are $150 or less brand new and come with Rifle Flighted shafts.

Those are cavity backs. Anything that has a "divot" in the back of the head is a cavity back. Much more forgiving than a blade. More up the alley of a budding golfer. :thumbs up:

Blades look sweet, but should be only garnished by experienced players.

I freakin hate my blades. To hit them consistantly I have to make sure I keep on top of practicing with them.

Of course, when I need to draw a ball around a tree that I thought I could clear...I love em!

Mizuno MP-30's. You could pick them up for under $225 if you spend enought time watching on ebay. I bought mine 3 years ago in like new condition for $200 + ship, so id imagine that prices have come down at least a tad.

A great set of irons. Enough forgiveness for a mid capper with still a ton of workability.

Despite the Apex Plus being cavity backs, they share many of the characteristics of it's Apex (blade) heritage: thin topline, thin sole, minimal offset. I have hit both, and the Apex Plus ain't that much more forgiving than a true blade.

Go get some Big Berthas if you want forgiving.
