***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.

    I did it for Rogue and I agree plus values were a little better than GG/Dicks. Global Golf and 3balls are my go to as they usually do an enhancement as well but I’m not sure when they will happen. Would love to be able to see the Mavrik and SIM heads in person before trading in a bunch of gear.

    Yeah agreed. Usually I will do a fitting for Callaway and TM and decide from there. Pretty sure both places offer a trade in bonus so I go with whichever I like best.

    They will honor 150% on the most expensive club you are trading in and that's it. One club gets the 150%, the rest get no bonus.

    Has anyone had a chance to hit both the MAVRIK (regular and SZ) and also SIM (and Max) fairways and compare how they feel and how the numbers compare across the 2 lines...I have seen a few driver comparisons, but have yet to see anyone compare the fairways. Thanks.

    That was the case for me in an indoor demo of the two different clubs. The standard was as forgiving as any fairway I've tried and the SZ was decidedly unforgiving for me. Matched up very favorably vs the Epic Flash 3 wood I currently have in terms of how consistent ball flight was. I like the looks and the feel.

    I'm a little surprised that the fairway wood and hybrid is not coming out with an adjustable hosel to retail. If you look at Aaron Wise's tour bag photos is appears they have them for tour issue. I would assume that is a factor of the design to optimize the CG, but I will say that may be a miss from a consumer/fitting perspective. You're at the mercy of the manufaturing quality control to make sure the face is square and the loft angles are stated. I'm interested to see how they hit it, maybe it will perform so well, i won't give a heck about the hosel and will buy them on the spot.

    I tried the Mavrik sz 3 wood and I liked the look at address feel with rogue white x stiff was good and could hit it off the deck even with a 13.5 pretty well. Now I might be crazy and if someone else mentioned this I’m sorry but I swore it whistled on the downswing. Is this on purpose to go with the airflow

    Anyone have the lie angles of the sz fairways? Didn’t see them on Callaway’s site. Hopefully they are still flat in comparison to the regular model.

    I love Callaway drivers, just not sure about the color scheme. However, colors be damned if I can hit more fairways. Looking forward to hitting this.

    Are we thinking the Maverik SZ is less forgiving than the Titleist TS3?

    TS3 or TS4, not sure that’s a fair comparison. TS3 with the weight always in the back should be comparable to the SZ with heavy weight in the back. You just can’t change the CG location with the SZ like you can on TS3. TS4 closer but unchangeable. I think overall the SZ is touted as being high MOI with low spin.

    That’s what’s confusing me. Some people are saying how unforgiving SZ is, but it seems like MOI was improved. I just used TS3 as a market, because I use it....

    MOI was not improved, but they are claiming that MOI isn't everything and for that reason they are saying it is more forgiving than the Epic Flash line

    Maybe for you, but i completely disagree... have you hit them both yet? SIM for me preformed worse than my EF SZ while Mavrik SZ was 4 mph faster. Looks, sound, and feel aren't even close between the two.

    I don't think this year is going to have a "clear winner", i think each individual golfer will have a "clear winner". The SIM and SIM Max didn't work well for my swing, Mavrik SZ was incredible. Doesn't mean I think the Mavrik SZ is a clear winner for everyone.
