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.

Best ball for......??

I'm 59 and hit it about 205 with driver. I know how to spin it with shorter clubs. Head-speed is about 85. Any input on a killer ball? Like to keep it $35bux and under. Thanx.

    Snell MTB or MTB-X, $32.99/doz Dean Snell's company, he has 29 years of golf ball research and development. He was co-designer of the Pro V1, and some other top balls too, so he knows his stuff... I'm 68 and I hit a 239 yard drive and a 235 yarder last week with the MTB black, and I'm nothing special, believe me.

    I’ll second the Z-Star. My brother-in-law has a similar swing speed and is very happy playing this ball.

    Maxfli Tour, $50 for 2 dozen at GG! I am 61 and play to a 7.8, my swing speed is about 88-90mph and I see no difference in performance when I compared it to the Pro V1.

    Do you like the Wilson Duo Pro better than let's say a Project A or QST?

    62 years old and the best all around ball for me has been the QST.

    I haven’t played either of those to be honest, I found it to be most similar to the AVX but a little softer and with more spin on chip shots. I hit the ball pretty high usually and these two seem to fly lower than a PV1 and the Soft Chrome balls. I prefer the color of the Titleist but prefer the cost of the Wilson.

    I have similar swing characteristics and I use the Pro V1x - best all around performer for anybody. My golf shop has overrun logo Pro V1's for $3.00 each. For the $35 - try the Titleist Tour Soft (formerly NXT Tour S), another great ball that will stop on the green and perform great. Only problem is that it's shorter off the tee vs Pro V1x.

    Do you need higher swing speed for prov1x

    The "x" spins less off a driver and goes a little higher. My SS is only around 85 and i hit the X farther the reg. V1.
