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.

I've got a relatively old set up: Callaway FT-9 driver (2009), Callaway FT Optiforce fairway woods (2013), PING G10 hybrid (2007), PING G10 XG irons (2011), PING EYE2 XG wedges (2013), and PING Anser X putter (2011). They're all in the bag because I trust them and they just work. What's the oldest club that you regularly play?

    I rotate stuff around on a whim, so currently the oldest things in the bag are the TM 300 Forged irons that I picked up about a month ago, still yet to hit them, but will change that in the next couple of days if the weather cooperates.

    I'm still regularly playing an old (about 25+ years old) American Open 56* wedge, the grooves on it are likely too worn to be of any use but it's still pretty much the club I trust the most around the greens, the rest of my bag is around 2005ish (irons) or 2011ish (woods and other wedges), but I recently pulled the trigger on a driver upgrade...

    Odyssey White Steel Tri-Ball SRT. Made in 2007, got it for $25 on Craigslist about 4 years ago. I've changed every other club in the bag at least twice since then. Going to be hard-pressed to get this out of the bag.

    I don't always bag this club anymore. But I have a 17° Controller driving iron from around 1999. I like it because it hits low running bullets.

    A few years ago, it was a Ping Pal putter from circa 1973. I sent Ping a photo of the clubhead for verification: they said it was legit, they just couldn't tell what batch it came from due to primitive data markings.

    Until about a year ago, I played Callaway X20 Tours (2008 origin); CPreO sold me a display set in 2011.

    Right now, the Tour Edge XRail 7W (2012) - and sometimes its brother 4W - hold the record.

    In terms of modern golf, my current 3 wood I’ve had since my 10th grade year (2011) Cleveland launcher dst I got from dicks, and if we want to go way back I have a 60 degree Spaulding wedge that may or may not be older than I (23 yrs old). Like another poster, I had 588 forged wedges since HS, just got rid of them to get the Nike Vr forged 52-56 (2014) for a steal
