Real or fake?


Recommended Posts

Hopefully this is the right spot for this. Guy wants to trade this Scotty for a Ping Tyne 4 putter. 

 

Looked good until I noticed it looked like the Cameron on the back was angled. 

 

Anyone ever see a Scotty like that?

There are some pictures at these links.    

That picture of stamping on the face, with "Cameron" not running parallel with the 3 dots would make me worry.   Maybe its the picture angle, not sure, but it gets my spidey-senses going.

I'm always paranoid about buying counterfeit stuff.

Big time paranoid. 

 

I put the two images (sidelineswap and mine) side by each and the lettering is way off. Thickness is different. Spacing is different. Paint on the 3 dots is different. 

 

Not worth the risk.

Lettering looks off from what I remember when i owned that model.  I would probably pass this time around.

I have the Newport version of that putter - the lettering on the one in your pictures is clearly not straight and definitely a fake scotty

Looks fake. The hosel doesn't look right. The red dots are filled wrong. The enamel paint or epoxy Titleist uses does pop out sometimes in older putters but being out of alignment is red flag #1. It seems that Scotties usually have more of a bevel ground around the edge of the face. The edges around the front look a little sharp. Plus, the lettering is too thin compared to an authentic Scotty. It may perform okay but there is no way that is a legitimate Scotty unless someone snuck a messed up head out of the factory. Scotty's are the most faked club on the market today and this one doesn't even look like a good fake. I'm not a fake scotty expert but you can compare photos to an authentic Scotty of the same vintage and you will instantly know this one is not legitimate.

So in a different thread, also on a fake scotty, a few of us talked about how with counterfeits you want to look at the paint first. It's so hard to get the color exactly the way the makers do it (yay trade secrets), and then to apply it right (yay more trade secrets). And the reds in a lot of the Scotty Cameron fakes are just a lot lighter and duller. 

Rag tag bag, but it does the job.

I personally ignore paintfill. It can be an indicator but so many people play around with different colors i don’t think it indicates much.

I've never seen a Scotty like that. You could contact Titleist to ask them if it was real with the serial number.
