Well, I purchased a CBS61 off of eBay at the beginning of last years season. I'm definetly a player, so I played like 5 days a week last year, and I'm still using it now. I still play as much golf as I can this year like 3 to 5 times a week and I must say, I've beatin the hell out of this cbs61 for the past 2 seasons and I can definetly give you feedback on it. When this item arrived at my house, I examined it real well and If it was fake, I sure as hell couldn't tell. The zippers were smooth, and all of them were marked with Titleist, The water bottle pocket was well knitted and the legs were sturdy and were all marked Titleist as well. At the end of last season I noticed that one of the inside rods that holds the bag stable, busted off at the bottom. I walk a lot so It could have been the rod constantly banging against my back. Trying to fix the rod I ended up pushing it back into place hard enough that I cracked the bottom of the bag, which pissed me off, so I epoxied it. Then after longer use I noticed the other side support was trying to push through the bottom, but didn't break off. Anyway, I know 2 seasons doesn't sound like a long time but If I use the bag on a cart and walk with it 5 times a week or so, some 27 holes, I'd say the bag feels like it's 5 years old. So moral of this story is, the actual bag has held up well. Besides a little duck tape I now have on the bottom (which is why I'm looking or a cbs81 now) I still use it. It still looks awesome, the legs still stand like the day I purchased it, the straps have absolutely molded in very well, and the water pocket and valuable pockets are still nice and work. so all in all, I'd say go ahead and order one. I don't think my bag is fake and I'm actually going to order a cbs81 the moment I get an invoice sent to me from this eBay seller hopefully tomorrow. This bag is real, Just take care of it.
