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.

Flightscope Xi+ TM Tour Preferred - warranty?

So this one will be for the fitters and instructors, namely those who work with Flightscope. Mods, please move if in the wrong section.

I recently purchased second hand a Flightscope Xi+ but its the Taylormade Tour Preferred model which is unlocked to show club data so it’s essentially an Xi Tour.

I’ll be getting it next week and my question is whether anyone has a definitive answer on:

1) Will Flightscope offer to sell a warranty on this? Reason i ask is on the simulator forum, I read that FS said the Tour Preferred models were black listed from retail so they won’t offer a warranty. But this was just an anecdotal comment.

sidenote: id basically be interested in the warranty for the “accidental drop” protection for the first year because the annual fee is pricey, so for other work to be done, it makes more sense i think to self insure.

2) Aside from damage/things not working properly, would there be a reason to send the unit into Flightscope for calibration/tune up? I’ve never owned a legit launch monitor so not sure if there’s a maintenance schedule on these like cars or if there really isn’t preventative maitenance to do.

3) goes along with 2, but also 1 - in a situstion where I would contact Flightscope, be it for warranty purchase, repairs, etc, am I putting myself/unit at risk? Ie, is it like a tour issue club where it’s not intended for retail and if I send it in they’ll confiscate it or anything like that? 

Disclaimer: I won’t be using it for any commercial purposes - just myself for practice on the range, and someday hopefully for an indoor sim when I get the space for one. 

Thanks so much for any expertise/advice!

    1) Only way to find out is to ask FS.
    2) No reason that I can think of if it's working properly.
    3) Only risk I can think of might be if it turns out to be a stolen unit - serial number registered to someone else, and they contact the 'original owner' to verify ownership.

    Thanks so much for the info, Stuart. Very helpful! Being my first big boy LM, wanted to make sure I was taking care of it properly but after reading a bit about the TM ones, I just wanted to gather some additional info from those in the know. Really appreciate it!

    I purchased a tm tour preferred as well and was able to get warranty on it. Tm did say that it was a unit still in use, but still allowed me to get the warranty.
