I bought a badminton racket from Decathlon, but the base does not have the country ( JAPAN ) missing. Is the racket fake? It seems to have the serial numbers on the shaft and handle with the hologram too.How can I authenticate it?
Titleist serial numbers in the past were mostly etched into the metal itself. Starting around 2013 they started using a laser to add serial numbers to their drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, and Scotty Cameron putters. From what I have seen, their iron sets are still etched into the metal. On Scotty Cameron putters it is located on the shaft up near the grip usually between the bottom of the grip and the top of the shaft band. With the newer drivers and fairway woods, it is located on the sole instead of the hosel. On iron sets that are off the shelf, the serial number is on the 6 iron and on custom ordered sets, the serial number is on all irons.
TaylorMade serial numbers are normally put on with a laser and are smooth to the touch just like most counterfeit clubs. Normally, the counterfeit serial numbers are in a different font and specifically a larger font. On many of the newer Taylormade drivers and fairway woods, the real serial number will be very light colored gray writing. Iron sets will have the serial number on either the 5 iron (for older models) or the 7 iron (on newer models). They have recently started putting serial numbers on the the hosel of all of the irons to confuse counterfeiters and are not used for registration or spec lookup. Taylormade putters and wedges do not have serial numbers. Tour issue clubs have a serial number that starts with a T.
Mizuno iron sets will have the serial number on the hosel of every iron. Mizuno clubs normally have the serial number lasered on, but it will be in small writing. Fake clubs will look like it is lasered on, but the writing will be much larger and a lot of times will only be on one club. This would be the same for Mizuno drivers and fairway woods. For iron international iron sets (Europe/Asia) the serial number is on the shaft underneath the grip.w
Callaway clubs normally have the serial numbers laser etched on and it is on one club for iron sets. There will also be a tiny 2D barcode next to the serial number. This holds true for Driver, Fairway woods, and odyssey putters as well. Although recently it seems that Callaway has stopped putting serial numbers on their fairway woods and hybrids, so if you have a recent model it may no longer have a serial.
Ping clubs will be harder to tell because they have recently started using laser etching on their newer clubs. It used to be that all their serial numbers were actually etched into the metal. It has just been in the last couple of years they have started using the laser etching process. On iron sets, Ping puts the serial number on all clubs. On the newer drivers and fairway woods the serial numbers are on the sole of the club back toward the hosel.
Most manufacturers do not offer a way for you to verify whether or not a serial number is authentic. The main reason for this is counterfeit club makers can easily take an actual serial number and stamp it onto their clubs. There are a couple of manufacturers that allow you to register your clubs on their website. Part of the registration is inputting the serial number on the clubs. This is also not a full proof way of determining whether or not a set of clubs is fake or not, as most of those sites will accept any serial number that is enter.
The seller had confirmed to me about 2 times that the racket was genuine. So, I made the order and it arrived today.After some minutes of excitement, I began to check whether the racket is as genuine as the seller said. It turned out to be a fake :( 2b1af7f3a8
