Not best pleased ordered a rbz from them which was non adjustable anyways

Got the phone number for TM and asked them did they make the rbz non adjustable they said no, then I gave them the serial number and the agent said they have no record of that driver.

He then advised me to take it back and get a refund. Phoned AM and they said its not and gave me some crap that TM serial numbers are not up to date and that happens all the time. But the club is real and basically I have to now pay to post it back.

What you guys think based on above

Thanks

Sounds a little odd. Most brands are very concerned with counterfeit items and wouldn't recommend taking it back. They would want to see it destroyed and investigate the issue.

Well i reckon taylormade got it wrong. they do offer a non adjustable one, i presume this is the link you bought it from below. Also American Golf were probably right, TM are very slow at updating their systems. I would eat my own head if American Golf sold you a brand new fake driver. rest assured, the one you have paid for is the one i presume you asked for...

The TaylorMade RocketBallz Glued Driver features a fixed hosel design meaning the driver is already tuned for maximum distance on every tee shot. As well as distnace, RBZ gives devastating speed. The high-MOI titanium head features Inverted Cone technology which dramatically enlarges the portion of the face that delivers high COR and fast golf ball speed, significantly improving performance on mis-hits giving that optimum combination of clubhead speed and control for golfers of all handicaps.
This TaylorMade RocketBallz Glued Driver also features:
Fixed hosel design for pre tuned maximum distance
Inverted cone clubface technology promotes faster golf ball speed and distance on off-centre hits
White crown/black clubface for easy alignment
1 year guarantee, Matrix XCON 5 graphite shaft and headcover included
Inverted Cone clubface technology promotes faster golf ball speed and distance on off-centre hits. At the same time, speed is a given with advanced clubhead aerodynamics allowing fast flow over the crown reducing drag and increasing head speed. Alignment is made easy with easy contrast between the white crown and black clubface. At the same time, the white head looks larger to promote more confidence and a fast, free swing speed.

I was in AG the other day and noticed that their RBZ 3 woods had silver faces rather than the black face you would normally expect.
The AG man said that this sort of thing happens all the time - TM supply them US or Far East spec clubs if its all they can get their hands on.

Especially with end of life kit, thats why they can flog it so cheap! last time i was in there, my mate dave that works there advised that AG had bought the entire global stock of the now non confirming Vokeys.
