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.

    Great to hear. Been on the fence about trying the black but now going to do it. Just unsure about the flex. Did you find the black 6x to be stiffer than the blue 6x?

    black 6X is stiffer then the blue 6X.

    I just recieved my black yesterday. It's a shaft if I was to just pick it up and try a practice swing I would never bother hitting. But after hitting it at the range last night it feels much better. The ball takes off easily with a similar launch to the blue. It seemed to be a little less spin and curvature from my eyes. You get the feeling you need to lay into it but it's surprisingly reactive to a relaxed swing.

    I have an extra 5.5g weight for my g410. When adding it to the head (leaving the stock 12g in the back) the blue was unplayable. I was able to feel the head droop down before impact and threw everything off for me.

    With the black you are unable to feel any change from the added weight. I was getting great results with just the stock weight though. Need to get on the GC2 and see the impact of the extra heel weight on everything.

    It’s a stiffer Shaft to me, but it’s also a different profile. I thought it was going to be like a steel pole.

    From what I have read: Blue has a soft handle-Xstiff mid section-super stiff tip. To me that felt smooth and strong and and a very active shaft that was stable. Black is a very stiff handle-milder mid section-and super stiff tip(only a hair stiffer). To me during swings it feels more solid throughout the entire shaft. It still is active, but more controlled.

    for what it’s worth I’ve heard the black and blue have some of the more stiff tips on the market.

    Its pretty unique from other shafts I’ve tried.

    I can’t speak to jumping from a Blue 6x to Black 7x. I kept the same weight. I’ve always liked the feel of a low 60-69/70gr shaft in my driver. For some reason I don’t get along with heavier driver shafts. I am sensitive to heavier heads as well. A Hybrid I like a 90-100gr.
