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 or PM's. 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.

    Anyways, back to the driver, it hit it today in an open outdoor range off natural grass with tees. Holy crap this thing sounds terrible, really high pitched ringing. Not very fun to hit. Am I crazy, or is this really unpleasant sounding? I thought my old Ping G was bad. Is there a way I can dampen the sound? Would a shaft change matter? Thanks.

    I could see the 180s making that noise but not the 190. I was using a G30 before I got my ST190 and they make totally different sounds. The G30 is like a Scooby Doo lunchbox on a stick and the ST190 is just so solid sounding....UNLESS...I find that when I catch it more toward the heel, there's this high pitched, almost sound spike, that goes right into my brain..But only when I hit it there...

    I played 9 holes today, no issues on the course. Sound was better with my AVX balls, maybe range balls were the issue. It still is a higher pitch than my Callaway drivers, but not bad. I know everyone hears differently, I was in no way knocking the driver it definitely performs well.

    Updating - I didn’t get a Ventus, but I got an AD Quatrotech X in it and it’s way better than the Tensei White. I still want to try a Ventus at some time, but for now, this is my
