***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.

Taylor Made Spider weight torque specs

My weight was rattling in my Spider putter so I used a Taylor made weight wrench to tighten in back up.... but it snapped off. Are the putter weights not installed with the same torque specs as the driver weights?

    I learned it the hard way and snapped a weight off in my putter. After that I only tightened till it feels like it's snug, don't use the full force of the driver wrench.

    Yeah, this is kind of a live and learn topic. I've been using a spider of some sort for a long time and had a weight issue years ago from over-tightening. Ever since then, it's been tighten until snug.

    It's usually just the lighter 1 and 2 gm weights you have to worry about with the new torque wrench. But no, even the heavier ones don't need the full click that the driver head screws need. The original TM wrench for the r7 weights (before the adjustable hosel) was ~3/4 of the torque of the current wrench.

    With the older spiders? I'm about to swap weights in my Spider X today and do not want to mess it up. TM said to tighten until it clicks with that version.

    Do you know the size of the weights? how heavy are each weight?

    You should not have any problems tightening the 6 gm weights until the click. Now it's not really necessary to get that tight for the putter weights but it shouldn't hurt anything. Its only if you go back to the 2 gm weights that you might have to be concerned about over tightening them.
