I have no idea. What would you look for to know if they are fake or real?
Dennis ... They say that "a picture is worth a thousand words" ... Have a look at the picture of a real one (on the left) & one of the sellers clubs I think you may understand why MTR made his comment ...

I see the following:
1, the mizuno script on the back is mishaped and 'soft'
2, the 'M' logo is far too large
3, the 'MP-37' is massive
4, the 'grain flow forged' is far too big and in the wrong place, it should be under the hosel opposite the face
5, the font for the iron numbers is wrong
6, the muscle pad is the wrong shape

I've owned and played Mizuno for over thirty years. Take a look at the genuine MP-37

What irks me, is these will be sold for way over what they're worth. I think the seller know's they are fake and is after a quick killing. They must be worth only £20 tops. What do you think?

I'd suggest you report him to eBay & save some poor mug whatever he pays for them ...

DD ... The clubs are still for sale & up to nearly £100 - I have submitted a report on them too - Sadly it doesn't give me the option to include the picture above which (imho) clearly shows how fake they actually are ... Paul

Someone is going to get ripped off and be really disappointed when they arrive. Potentially putting them off Mizuno in the future.... I messaged the seller and he wasn't bothered about what he was selling. Going through the Ebay reporting is poor, too. You only get a set amount of characters to type, not nearly enough.

Hi Paul,
I have had a look at this set of clubs and share your concerens that they are fake, I also submited a report on them but I won't hold my breath in antisipation of anything being done about them..!

These clubs are still for sale :mad: - I tried posting a message on their Knowledge Base area as I could not navigate the infinite maze that is "Ebay Help" (surely an oxymoron?) - Anyway, it was pointed out that Ebay will only pull items as fake if the Company contact them - So maybe MPX is interested in trying? - His word, together with my picture, should have the desired affect - Failing that, some poor sod is going to end up wit the mother of all lemons ... Paul
