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

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.

Which ball for the winter?

Which ball are you putting in play this winter?
I’ve been enjoying my season playing the pro v1x but suspect it’ll play too hard for the cold Canadian winter. Maybe go with the q-star. What are you going to play?

    Normally use Snell Get Sum. Great price and works well.

    Since I play a fairly soft ball (Z-Star or ProV1) I use it all year round. Living in Maryland the winters are fairly moderate with some exceptions - then I stay home. I will go into my box of cart-path balls when the leaves are on the ground.

    I'll probably switch over to the Pinnacle Soft in the colder SC months. One, I like the way it feels and two, I don't mind as much if I lose one in the middle of the fairway in the leaves because of the cheap price!

    I'll probably stay with my K-Sig, but Supersofts, Duo Softs, and TF D2 Feels are all good winter balls.

    It's August and I personally think you should be banned for bringing up winter, regardless of you living in the Great White North.

    +1, the 50 elite is also a good budget ball for anytime of year tbh

    I was planning to play my TP5X during the winter, since their lower green side spin won’t put me in trouble. Is that a good idea?

    I like using the B e6 soft when it gets below 50 degrees here in the midwest. The 50 elite and the duo soft are also in my bag.

    I really like the Srixon soft feel, but I will play a Callaway Supersoft, or really any womens ball. Its wet here in Oregon so I wont actually buy a ball for winter as I find 100s in the summer to use.

    I save quite a few found balls throughout the summer season and keep the lower cost balls in good condition in a container and start using them when the leaves start to fall. I don't like to look for a ball in fall conditions with all the colored leaves on the ground. On the upside, playing an early round in the fall, we usually find quite a few in the near rough from the previous evening player's.

    I normally use the same type all year round. However I might use a Pro v1 if it’s a windy day. It gets fairly cold over here.
