***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.

Here is an incredible set of 1960 Ben Hogan Power Thrust irons 2-E restored to like new condition. This is a grail set of irons that have been restored to their original glory, ready to play or display.

First, the heads have been rechromed and given a satin finish. They never came this way from the factory but they should have as the satin finish is incredible. The original Pro Fit shafts have been spine aligned and lengthened 1/2” to bring the clubs to modern playing length. Buyer has the choice of GripMaster leather grips or a set of New Old Stock Golf Pride Cord grips that have been stored away for over 50 years and are in perfect condition.

Please note, the Pro Fit shaft is regular flex but plays closer to a modern stiff flex. Also, some shaft bands are missing but the original ones have been saved when available. Some may also be slightly turned as the shafts have been spine aligned and the shaft label might not face straight up but are original.

This set has been tuned up and will hold its own against any modern blade style iron. They are ready to play and will be an incredible addition to any bag.

I will pay shipping to the USA via USPS Priority Mail fully insured. Outside USA ask me for a shipping quote.

$995

Pin 9/26

    Have had some interest but let’s lower these to $995 and I’ll still pay Priority Mail shipping to USA.
