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.

Callaway Supersoft or Wilson Staff Duo Soft - which do you prefer and why?

    According to Wilson the Callaway is a direct copy with a slightly different dimple pattern and since Callaway has admitted to QC issues, I’d go Wilson.

    I've played the Supersoft quite a bit and just played 9 holes with a Duo Soft (matte orange if that matters). I prefer the Supersoft, although it may just be due to familiarity. I think the Duo Soft made almost no sound off the putter. I am also under the impression that it's even softer feeling than the Callaway on full swing shots.

    Duo Soft. I've never gotten along with the SuperSoft. Hit that thing into a hard green and forget it - it's bouncing and rolling completely off.

    Supersoft. Why? Better distance same spin on greens .

    Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

    I used supersofts for five years as my swing speed got slower. I didn't think I'd ever change until last year when I gave Duo softs a try (really liked the matt colors at the time). Distance didn't change much (if any) but I believe the Duo's hold better. Our local PGA superstore and Golf Galaxy have a two dozen for 35.00 sale on the Duo's which is another plus in my book. I played two 18 hole rounds in the last week using the same orange ball (new record not losing a ball for me!). The cover of the ball still looks great and I'm going to use it again. Surprisingly durable!

    Wilson, Callaway feels like hitting a rubber ball with the irons.
