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.

Pulling a Stability off a shaft

Just had an interesting question from a guy asking if I you can pull a stability shaft off the steel shaft and refit to another putter. I know the manufacturer doesn’t recommend pulling the stability off due to multilayers of material but it would be great to be able to transfer it from
One club to another especially at that price.

    It's actually really easy if you take your time. The easiest way I've done it is to heat up a metal rod until it's red hot and stick it up inside the steel tip. Let it sit inside for a bit and then you can usually pull off the steel shaft from the Graphite tube. If it won't budge then repeat a few times until it's free.

    I have a rod suitable so I was thinking that just didn’t want to cook the graphite

    Possibly another option would be to just heat the existing metal shaft that is still attached to the head, heat well below the stability adapter and let the heat transfer up the shaft. Wouldnt really matter if you damage/discolor the shaft "stem" as it would need pulled from the head and a new steel shaft installed anyhow to use the existing putter.

    No telling if that would alter the performance though?
