***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Yes Sophia

<div class="IPBDescription">sweetspot?</div>I'm picking one up soon. I was just wondering since this is a heel shafted putter wouldn't the sweetspot be towards the heel a little. How does that affect the C Groove technology since they are in the middle of the face?

    No, sweet spot should be in the centre of the putter. If you want to prove it to yourself, suspend the putter from a height by a string tied to the handle. when the putter hangs still, get a golf ball and tap the centry of the face with a golf ball. If you tap the sweet spot the putter will not twist it will move straight back and through. <br />
    Also as far as I know all C Grove putters are face balanced. This means that if you balance the putter on your finger, (along the shaft) the heel and toe of the putter will be level with the face pointing up. A lot of Scotty putters a toe heavy so if you do this the toe will point some way to the ground.

    First of all....not all C Groove putters are face balanced. The Tracy II is toe down, the Callie is toe down, the Dianna is toe down and the Sophia like all other heel shafted "blade type" putters is toe down.<br />
    <br />
    As for how the C Grooves affect the Sophia....they're in the sweet spot. Don't worry about them. The "new" blade's including the AC VII Napa, and Betti BB2 along with the Sophia I just so happen to have next to me at my desk all are shaped similarly on the rear flanges. They seem to have more weight taken from the heel of the flange instead of like some older 8802's and IMG5's which have more even flanges and heads. This allows the sweet spot to be more in the center of the face instead of towards the heel.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
