***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.

Claw grip users, what grip is on your putter?

Recently it was suggested that I move back to claw grip based on a few things, I've used the claw grip in the past so I'll transition back to it pretty fast. A few grips I have are just not comfortable or compatible for the claw grip so I need to order a few and change up my putters. I'm thinking of going to the Flat Cat and install it Justin Rose style, but I want to see what everyone else is using.

So claw grippers what grip do you have on your putter?

    For me, it's the classic Ping AVS mid-size - but any mid-size pistol grip will do the job for me.
    Tried the larger diameter grips but they just never felt comfortable.

    I've been using a claw grip since 2003 and have always used standard sized putter grips - could never get the grip to feel right with mid/oversized models.

    This is what I'm currently using and I've used essentially this same model grip going back to the original Odyssey 2-Ball (the putter I was using when I went to a claw grip):

    So seems Claw is like any other grip in terms of preference. I do have the Garsen Max which is probably the worst for Claw grip with the taper.

    Superstroke has that claw specific grip, saw it at GT when I went in to get a flatso.

    Are you playing an armlock set up or just have a 17" grip on a regular putter?

    I'm actually playing the JumboMaxx Mid-Jumbo on my gamer but it may not be saved after a few changes are made to my putter. That's why I'm asking in case I need to find a new grip.

    Not doing the arm lock, just the standard claw grip.

    Interesting so a 17" grip on a regular length putter. Must get some odd looks when using it but if it works it works.

    Yeh it had a 15" Ping CB60 counter weighted grip on it when I bought it but I putted so good I wasn't going to change it. It also felt very balanced so I wanted the same weight on the grip end ( 130 grams ). Anyway when I put the Jumbomax on there I put a 3" extension in the shaft before putting the grip on. I'll take a pic tonight and post tomorrow if you want.

    I have the superstroke claw grip on my putter now and the putter I had before. Before the claw grip came out, I was using the flatso 2.0 on all my putters. Either of those grips feel good to me with how I claw/grip the putter.

    That's not as bad as I thought honestly. I think the pics on the Jumbo Max site make the 17" grips look like they're driver shafts in terms of length.

    Maybe I'll order one I do like the feel and weight of their putter grips.
