***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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.

Anybody know of a release day? Golfworks has all 3 on sale but it says back ordered. Red, Blue and green star, seems like a pistol, midsize paddle, and then the green is like a thicker option. Anyway, really wanna try the red, just not sure when I’ll actually get it lol. Anybody in the know?

    I think these are a re-release from 2009.

    It would be cool to have reference guide and pictures (top and side profiles) of different grips. I would love to see the differences, and manufacturer websites don't always show the profile differences.

    I looked and didn't even see these on the GP site. They look good, nice and simple...I'd love to see more about the profiles!

    Just ordered a Red star version from grips4less, they said it was ready to ship! I'll update when I get it, I wish I could have at least felt and seen all 3 of these to decide witch on first but I guess it's an early release and I NEED a good traditional paddle grip. Very tired of every putter coming with a SS or some version of it.

    Just received the red as part of the tester program. It feels perfect. A slightly beefed up Pingman grip.

    Ended up with red and green, LOVE the green. Red was a bit thick for me, I feel like if we want a pistol grip it should be thin. Red felt a little too full for me.

    Isn't green the bigger grip between the red and green? I have the red and it's a pistol grip, just a tad fuller than a PP58.

    I have red and green. Green is obviously bigger overall but it's tall in the upper hand instead of wide.
    I would say red is similar to PP58, Lamkin Skinny pistol. Green is like an Odyssey DFX or Lamkin deep etch.

    yea I think it reminds me so much of the deep etch, I decided to game it. The taller profile feels great to me vs wide. All great feel and material though, great departure from the superstroke flooded market.

    I held these at my local GT. Thwy actually feel great. I would say they shouls sell reasonably well at $20 CDN. That being said..they are likely no better than similar style grips for half of the price.

    The cc translates 1 to 1 in grams. So it actually is weight.

    No, cc is volume. They're relaying the overall size of the grip. If the density of the material happens to be 1 gram per cc, then the weight would have the same magnitude, but it still is false to say "it actually is weight" since cc is not a unit of weight.

    Totally agree. However I have all 3 and on my scale they weigh exactly the stated cc. Like exactly. So.... ?

    So, that means they're all made with the same density material. Assuming they're all roughly the same length, then the smaller the cc the smaller the size. So red is smaller than blue, which is smaller than green.

    Love the feel of these grips but wish the red star grip didn’t have a curved front where your top hand goes. Can anyone recommend a grip with the shape of the red star, looking down from the top, with a flat front? Looking for something around 75 to 100 cc in rubber with a similar feel to the pro only grips. The golf pride SNSR contour is a nice shape but it is too soft and the color is awful. Pure midsize looks right but I’m worried it may be to squishy. Lambkins sink fit skinny has the same problem as the red star grip.
    Thanks

    The red star is identical to the Ping PP58/PP58 Midsize made by Golf Pride. Which makes me wonder: Did Ping design the PP58?
