***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'm a Bettinardi fanboy, but I couldn't look down at that thing. To each their own though, Bettinardi makes plenty of beautiful putters as well.

    Eh, I could see the square shape being easy to align, but think I prefer the previous Antidote putter.<br />
    <br />
    But hey, what are all the black putters shown? Don't see those available at retail. Is this a new line from Bettinardi?<br />
    <br />
    Hopefully they can release some good stuff. I'm confused by them as a company. Seems like their craftsmanship is top notch, and they are made in the USA. The retail lines are ehhh... OK. Tour Stock stuff is awesome, but who is buying these things? I never see them anywhere. Seems like they are focused on the collector/overseas market or something.<br />

    I don’t care what any putter looks like, as long as it gets the ball in the hole! I am intrigued by the design and wonder what their plan is here

    I now think no putters are silly looking because I have been drubbed so soundly by someone using a Ping Doc and, more recently, a Directed Force. On top of that, I've seen too many broomsticks sign for too many low scores to ever be a naysayer to anything that makes the ball disappear.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I owned (and putted quite well with) a Ping Doc 15 about 12 years ago so it's not like I turn my nose up at unconventional putter types. This, however, is just way over the line.

    Actually, the more I look at this putter the more I think it may be workable.<br />
    <br />
    Reduce the size about 10%, offer a slant neck - it might work.

    I'm not sure about the Antidote to be honest but ever since I went to Chicago and got fitted I have never putted better. They know something.

    More like the disease, not the antidote. A true brick on a stick. Bettinardi crafts some true beautiful works of art. This isn't one of them. It looks like he rummaged a junk yard and attached some piece of an old refrigerator to a shaft and called it a putter.
