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.
Taylormade MG2 in hand and RUSTED. How to with pictures.
So my MG2s came in a little earlier than expected. So I watched the Rick Shiels video like a lot of you and saw him spraying the faces to help accelerate the raw faces oxidation. I assumed he used a Hydrogen Peroxide/Vinegar/Salt solution and someone in the other threads confirmed my beliefs. So I figured I would copycat him and give everyone a realistic idea of how long it takes, what to do, blah blah.
So here are my wedges. Fresh out of the wrapper with the sticker removed, which is very satisfying if youre into that type of thing. MG2 Black, Nippon 115 wedge matte, and midsize Golf Pride MC red/black grips.
Here is the beginning of the oxidation process. To see an initial result in the oxidation it literally takes 10 seconds before you see it start working on the face. This was after maybe a minute.
Here is the head after about 3-5 minutes.
And here it is after I was satisfied with the results and did not want to cause any deformation to the grooves (which I doubt it would in the time frame). Around 15 minutes total and washed off.
Also, the etching on the back will rust as well. Cool touch if they meant to do it, who knows?
I just poured the solution onto the club head and let it sit on the face. I believe misting would be a better alternative but I didn't have a spray bottle handy. 15 minutes total on my end, sitting in the sun. So...The recipe to do this is as follows.
8oz Hydrogen Peroxide
1ish oz of Distilled White Vinegar
1/2 tbsp of Kosher Salt
Let me know what you guys think. I know this is just a jumpstart to the true oxidation process. I am also not one that thinks rusting adds a ton of anything other than looks, and I happen to be one of the few that enjoy the aesthetics of it.
