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 had the Copper head TX before the rogue white tx.

    Copper head was a hard hooking machine for me. I really had to really fight and swing really smooth just to keep it in play. Just didn't get along with it.

    With the White I can swing as hard as I want. Provided it's not an over the top closed club face swing and not worry about hard left. I also don't loose many high right. I've never been this accurate with the driver. ( Hope this wasn't the kiss of death).

    If you are a smooth swinger the Copper head is a great shaft. If you have a hard transition it is not ideal from what I've seen.

    The Copperhead profile just really fits me, I guess. I used it last season in an LTD Pro and I never really saw much in the way of hooks. I’d say I have a moderate tempo. I’ve got one coming in for my Triple diamond heads. It paired up well with The LTD Pro, which is a very fade biased head, so I’m hoping it will be the same with the Triple Diamonds, since they are pretty fade biased as well. I did just hit the 130 White 60x and felt it was a very good shaft as well- Copperhead had maybe a touch more feel for me.

    Copper Head is a great shaft. Looks great too...Not overly counter balanced.

    The White in my opinion would work for mid tempo also. You will probably get more "kick" with the Copper.

    Stick with what works. It's cheaper!!!

    Anyone know how the Rogue White 60S would compare to HZRDUS Smoke Black 60S? Diamana ZF 60S?

    I tried the Smoke Black 60S for a little bit. Prior to that I gamed the HZRDUS Yellow. For me I couldn’t control the Smoke Black, the dispersion was much larger that HZRDUS Yellow and the Rogue White is even better than both of those. Rogue White feels much smoother too. I continue to game the Rogue White and couldn’t be more pleased.

    Thanks @jas904 that's been my experience with the Smoke as well. Some days I'm striping it, most days can't control it...granted my swing needs work, but just could never "feel" the shaft.

    I was able to try a Mavrik with the Rogue White on it yesterday for like three swings, and boy it felt worlds different. Same 60S, but it felt a lot smoother and livelier. Smoke usually feels dead to me.

    Good feedback. I ordered my Mav SZ with the Rogue White 70X but never gamed it since I have a GD AD-IZ 7X and a GD AD-TP 7X. Both of those are untipped playing at 44.75”. I can game either, but at times the TP can launch a little low, and the IZ can be a little high. Hit the Rogue on the range yesterday and it seems like it might be a happy medium between the two. I was very pleased with the flight. But it was stock 45.5” so it felt “different”. Cut it down to 44.75” tonight and will take it to the range tomorrow to see if it can be a gamer.

    This is almost definitely a dumb question, but the stock 130 white in the Mavrik series is the real deal shaft, correct?

    What has everyone done for swing weighting the rogue white tx shafts??
