***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.

    I think its funny that we complain about everything looking the same and yet we also ridicule those that present something that is at least cosmetically different. I like the look, its fresh and yet carries a traditional shape.

    I like Bettinardi and currently game one, but why do they need so many violence-based themes. From the 2nd amendment headcover to this Armageddon putter, I feel like someone needs to remind them that they make sports equipment for a game that requires hitting a small white ball around, not military equipment. The world is violent enough, can't there be any respite

    I like the loop velcro cover. I've got a ton of patches I'd keep on a cover. I once asked Delilah about turning an old flight jacket/suit into a putter cover with the velcro patches but never got a response. I think I'm going to try again and see if it can be done.

    different for sure. I like the new take on the top line of the putter, looks pretty sharp. That head cover though... I like the Velcro option with patches / badges.

    Bettinardi does have a history milling equipment for the department of defense. <br />
    As pointed out, there is plenty of "fun" stuff coming out of their shop as well. Kool-Aid line, the Super Soaker head cover also comes to mind.

    ok, how is the 2nd Amendment violence based? I feel like someone needs to remind you that 99+% of the gun violence perpetuated is done so by lawless individuals and not legal gun owners. After seeing how the left reacts to things that they don't like, they are the ones that shouldn't legally own a firearm.

    Please provide the citation on your 99% figure, because I assure you that's patently false. Secondly, regardless of your feelings about then, a gun is a weapon, hence the violence reference. <br />
    <br />
    More importantly, I wasn't trying to get into an argument about gun rights, I was merely trying to question why putters, a club designed to roll a ball, need this pseudo macho marketing. When putting, do you need a reminder of your manliness by staying down a gun themed club?

    This thing is sharp! The consistency in the matte color from the shaft through to the putter head itself is on point. Also really like the do-it-yourself headcover. Betti has so many cool designs that it'd be fun to mix and match. <br />
    <br />
    The theme fits a lot of the raw, minimalist Betti putters and it happens to look like a tank. I think it would instill confidence at address. Has nothing to do with "wanting to remind myself of my manliness". I just want to make putts.

    Why do you need a physical citation on the subject? Do you honestly believe that the law-abiding citizens are the ones going around and shooting up places? HONESTLY? A gun, or as many people refer to it as a firearm, is a tool to most people. In like terms a golf club is a weapon as well. If you need the physical evidence you may want to refer to Tiger's Ex-wife.<br />
    <br />
    If you're concerned about the companies marketing concepts of a putter company, you may need to refocus your decisions and try to divert them to something that actually matters. Who cares about what they call it. If you don't like it, move on! They clearly did not choose this to OFFEND YOU directly.<br />

    Gun / military / macho themed products appeal to men in this country. Plain and simple. By comparison, do you think pink bear stamps on the bottom of the putter would appeal more to their customer demographic?<br />
    <br />
    I applaud them trying something different in a world of look-a-likes and corps who are afraid to venture outside their comfort zone when it comes to designing their products.
