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 or PM's. 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.

Has anyone ****'d with these? Recoil Smacwrap works pretty well for me, I do have a little more dispersion than I do with Modus105. Ideally looking for similar, or better, performance and control with less weight than Modus 105.

    If the OT Tour iron shafts play anything like the OT Hybrid shafts, they are solid shafts. Mid-high flight, mid spin, good dispersion and great feel. Buy 1 shaft and have it put in a mid iron.

    I play them in my Epon 703s. Better than Recoil for me. Club champion has them as a fitting option.

    I have tried a ton of graphite iron shafts, and my two favorites are the Recoil Prototypes and the OTi Tour shafts. Both seem to feel great and keep up with the swing. I don't see a loss of accuracy between either of these and any of the top steel shafts I have played. It sure helps with my elbow issues though!

    Are the Recoil prototypes a lot stiffer than the standards? They feel that way to me, and I mean that in a good way. I had a 95 standard in a long iron and it felt loose. Same for the 110. However, picked up a Miura wedge with a 110 prototype and it is excellent.

    I also like Mitsubishi shafts. The Diamana Blue and Kuro Kages have been good to me in woods. If the OTi is like that, I’d be interested. Could be the year I switch to all-graphite. Nagging injuries past two years plus the graphites are so good now.

    I never really hit the non-Proto Recoils.

    Regarding OTi Tour, I don't know how it really compares, but I love the KK Silver/XT profile in my woods, and really like the OTi Tour shafts (haven't hit the non-tour version). Never really got along with the Blueboard profile all that much, fwiw.

    Hahahaha, I was thinking that the OT definitely has to have a Blueboard profile as I get along with the "blue" profile........I'll be putting a tensei pro blue in my driver to match my mini driver/3 wood....
