***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.

    Day 2 quick range session before church. Coming from a AD DI, I need to loft up with the White and Silver.

    Can’t test the Black as my head flew off and went about 50 yds down range. No biggie. I will have the tip reglued tomorrow. Didn’t want to share that, but it was funny trying to get a packed range to stop and not get killed running out there to get it.

    Anyway, looking to pickup a TM Sim head in 10.5 or even 12 to play the Silver. It’s that good. The White is so good too. Again, Aldila is spot on when they have 3 shafts to chose from for desired trajectory. I am seeing better dispersion with the White and Silver over my AD DI. The Silver has tight dispersion like my prior Tensei PW, but a but stiffer in the handle. That shaft I was fit into by PXG.

    Thanks again Aldila.

    Im here, not as a tester, only to make an observation after golfing 18 holes today with @jas904

    Hole 1

    Hole 3

    Hole 8

    Hole 9

    Hole 18

    These are all instances where Jas was in an area of the fairway I’ve never seen him before. It’s not like it was an isolated incident it was an occurrence that took place many times during the day. Jas out-drove me on hole 1 which (Jas can confirm) does not happen.

    He wasn’t swinging out of his shoes. He wasn’t trying to kill it. Just his normal swing (he goat-humps the s* out of it). But the point is his normal swing was placing him down-range further than normal.

    All this to say, I’m a believer. Jas was hitting the white and it seems to suite him quite well.

    As I mentioned in my initial review I wasn’t convinced about the slightly longer than normal distances because the course was unusually dry. After the last two days I am convinced that the White for me it is longer than my HZRDUS Yellow. Hole 1 the fairway was wet from dew. I hit gap wedge in. I never hit gap wedge in on that hole. Hole 15 was into a 5-7 MPH wind. I drove it past the fairway bunker. I only do that in the summer. This weekend I have legitimately picked up 10 yards and that is conservative. On 12 I necked it and I thought it was a spinny cut. Right side on the fairway not as short as I had expected it. I could bore you with more examples but I won’t. As much as I love the added distance, it’s the feel and dispersion that has me most excited. I would never game a shaft that is longer that I can’t control. Not the case here. The White is firmly in my bag.

    What @ebrasmus21 has failed to mention was what happened at the turn. I grabbed the Silver and plugged it into a SIM Max demo head from the pro shop. @ebrasmus21 is a high swing speed guy 115 at least if not more. He games a TPT. The Silver performed like a champ for him even though it was a S and he probably needs a X. I knew it would as it is a little too much for me.

    Once again thank you Aldila. This is eye opening.

    Well, looks like Fedex will get my package to me today! Got some crappy weather coming in the next few days here in central NC. I hope to get to an indoor sim in the next couple of days to run the 3 Rogue shafts up against my beloved VR6x!

    FedEx delivered today! So awesome to have received all 3 shafts, the Rogue 130 black, silver and white all in 60TX.

    I spent some time this afternoon specing out the 3 shafts in my Mavrik 9* head to ensure I’m testing with a proper swing weight. Both the black and white required more head weight to get in my preferred D2-D4 range.

    Plan is to get into Trackman indoors in the next few days to get some numbers.

    The last paragraph are my sentiments, EXACTLY!

    I'm as confident in this shaft as I am in my putter that's been in the bag since '08.

    Don’t think those TX versions are available retail davo32683. Hoping to compare my 60TX white with a retail 60X soon.

    I think you're correct. I'll actually probably do the same test from the stock Mavrik shaft at some point.

    Yes, the Rogue White 130 MSI is stock in the Mavrik woods. Ridiculously good "stock" shaft.

    I got fit this winter, spent a good amount of dough on another really good shaft, and here is this stock Rogue White 60 about to knock it out. I have the Rogue White 60 in regular and stiff, standard Mav and Mav Max driver heads, and I am just trying to come to a consensus. Milder-than-normal winter here in NJ has allowed me to get out on the course with these, but it is darn tough to come to a conclusion with so many settings to test, from hosel, to head weight, etc. But I digress.

    In any case, the Rogue White is just a really stable and smooth, mid-launch low-spin shaft.

    Congrats fellaz, looking forward to all the reviews. So far I'm reading the White is the best feeling. Woould anyone say the Silver has a harsher feel?

    I wouldn’t say the Silver has a more harsh feel. I would say compared to the White, the Silver has slightly less feel. Or perhaps the Silver is not as lively as the White.

    It being Winter and silly season for me -So with all the interest in these shafts I just picked up a Rogue 130 Silver 60TX from ProClubs and am contemplating the Rogue White 60 but it's available in X only (retail). The guys at PC have said it's a tipping difference of a 1/2 inch between the X and TX shafts this coming from the Aldila rep. ....? Not that I don't believe them (I'm skeptical) My question is has /have any of you hit these to discern any differences?

    Contact Toll Bros here. He has the TX version of the white for sale. According to him there is a difference in materials between the X and TX. Producing lower spin, launch and stiffer overall.

    Yeah, I'm aware he has them for sale, not looking to buy before I get a comparison though. Especially, based on prices. As I said the Aldila rep. is saying the difference is tipping. I'm just trying to see if anyone has hit them side by side. I'll go back and re-read his write up see if he wrote anything about them. I know he compared the Silver and White

    Couple days late on this review. I played 18 on Tuesday switching out shafts numerous times. Slow round so it was easy swap shafts throughout. Local course that I know my local spots. Live in AZ by the way.

    Again, 10 hdcp that kinda isn’t very good off the tee. Playing an M5 (soon to be SIM). Go to shaft is a AD DI or IZ.

    Started off with the White because I though that was the beat fit for me. I like the small kick it has like the IZ, it more controllable than the IZ. The White is special because it is medium launch with low spin. Very controllable. I hit a few drives that I thought hit and ran out longer than normal. The White is ranked #1 in my book. It’s a must buy for people looking for a mid launch, low spin driver with a nice firm handle that is low spin.

    Switch to the Silver. Wow! That is special too. If I was better and a little stringer that would be an amazing shaft. My best dispersion was with the Silver. I think it flexes very evenly with a solid feel in the handle. Is it overly stiff? No, not even for a hack like me. I hit some ropes with it that hit the middlEnid the fairway that just ran. If I had a 10.5 head (SIM 10.5 on its way) it would be even better. I had trouble ranking them. Silver is #2.

    Black was used sparingly and think it in a 70 gram would be money, complete money, in a fairway wood. It’s a little looser than my AD DI. Maybe... the. Black is still very good and even in the 50TS Is is a great choice for people that need a lighter shaft with higher launch.

    Again, Aldila is spot on how they advertise this line. You want some shafts that keep you in or near the fairway, go look at the 2020 Rogue Line.

    I’ll keep posting and appreciate this opportunity.

    Huge shot out to Aldila Customer Service or whoever watches this thread. That is all I can say! You are awesome!

    So I got the 60TX in the contest. I have a stock 60X from a Mavrik as well. I intend to compare them as well at some point, but will likely be a little down the road unless I still have some gas in the tank tomorrow to compare to the 3 I got along with my current VR6X.

    On the surface, the 60TX is a little higher end on the finish/graphics. It’s etched rather than screened on like the 60X and the black and silver 60TX models I have.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
