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.

Wilson 50
TF D2
TF XL
Maxfli Revolutions
Noodle Long n Soft
Slazenger
K3

Callaway Hex Soft Costco

Sure there are more. What are your favorites, their price point, and features?

For me the Wilson 50 is just too soft. The k3 I just hate for some reason. The TG D2 is a great ball. Noodle is solid but not very long. Tempted to try the costco callaway that replaced the hot 55.
Dick's is great when they have deals, but I'm really trying to find the diamond in the rough $1 ball that has distance, feel and more greenside spin than a Topflight XL.

    D2 feel has to be a contender in this price range. I am curious about the Noodle Neons. Wilson Zips?
    1.00 a ball will be tough unless you get Nitros which are terrible.

    Just buy the QST when the BOGO free deals are on and you'll be paying $15/dozen.

    I think the max is $18/doz inclusive of tax and shipping. But anything under $20 out the door should play.

    LOL! Literally any golf ball ever made is better than a Top Flite XL. If you have a Dunhams Sports near you the $7.99/dozen deal for the Nike RZN Platinum practice balls can not be beat. .67/cents per ball that are brand new for a tour level urethane covered ball. They just have a small PRACTICE side stamp on them.

    Not sure where you are located. If you have a Dunhams Sports near you stop in and see if they have that Nike RZN deal running. There was a recent thread here on it. Good luck.

    I'd add the Maxfli Softfli/Speedfli to that list. Both balls are extremely good for their pricepoint.
    Are the they same as a Q Star Tour? Heck no. But when buying cheap, you could do a lot worse than them.

    If you are in the UK or parts of Asia, these are about US$0.50 per ball. Literally a flying rock but it is still round and can end up on the green or in the water depending on the swing.
