***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.

    Maru means "round" or "circle"<br />
    <br />
    Very indicative that this shaft is going to have a circular diameter.

    It doesn't make too much sense to replace the Tie series. I would also love to put the red up against the Black Tie.

    My guess is a SpeedRulz replacement.<br />
    <br />
    Shaft graphics say "Speed ???? ???? Technology"

    Speed Rulz Type C 70X was a great shaft for me the last two seasons. I held on to it. Super smooth for a low/low.<br />
    <br />
    Might be interested in this new series too

    The whole Speed Rul Z Series was SUPER slept on!!!<br />
    <br />
    The C-Type 60 was a world class shaft that can be had for like 75 Bucks now.<br />
    The B-Type 70 is a great fairway shaft that is slightly counter balanced.<br />
    <br />
    I know Matrix has thrown out some Dud's over the past 3 years but the Speed Rul Z series was great!!!

    AKRON, Ohio — Matrix's newest shaft offering made its TOUR debut at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. The new "Maru" lineup consists of three mid-launching and mid-spinning profiles that are designed to optimize feel and performance based on swing type and speed.<br />
    Each shaft utilizes the company's Gradient Energy Flow (GEF) technology to produce "Tour-type" trajectory and improve ball speed. The GEF also helps enhance stability in the mid-section, which in turn transfers more power directly to the club head at impact.<br />
    According to Matrix, the Maru Green has the softest butt and tip section in the lineup. The active tip section makes it easier to get the ball in the air without sacrificing control. The shaft is built for players with a smooth swing.<br />
    Maru Blue, which replaces Matrix Speed Rulz B-Type, has a stiffer butt section and responsive tip section that creates a balanced EI profile. The shaft is geared for the stronger golfer with a faster release who needs extra stability but doesn't want to sacrifice feel.<br />
    The final shaft in the lineup, Maru Red, will replace Speed Rulz C-Type and features an extra-stiff butt and tip section. The Red profile is made for high-swing speed players that "heavily load the shaft, and prefer a firm, controlled fee."

    Hmm interesting. The Maru Red replacing Type C --- I played Type C 70X, the butt end was definitely not extra-stiff but the tip was. Regardless the middle was softer than the rebar low/low shafts it battles against, definitely felt that shaft kick. <br />
    <br />
    I've emailed Matrix a few times with no response. I might have to give them a call to clarify this.
