***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.

    will be interesting to see if any tour players or fast guys switch into it. Rory is px 7.0, cam champ is X7, Kyle Berkshire is X7, Matt Blois (TXG) has been fit into x7 multiple times.

    Anyone have a list of more guys currently in the px 7.0, x7, ctaper 130x? Those seem to be the choice for guys looking to reduce spin maybe until this PX LS comes out.

    If I understand correctly the difference between the 6.5 and 7.0 is really weight.

    As an X7 player, I'm interested. I've never been a huge fan of the way PX have felt in the past, so I doubt I'll make the switch, but it's fun to look.

    I don't have a ton of experience hitting both but from a few range sessions and what I've read the weight is what most people notice but technically the 7.0s are stiffer. Look into the FCM for the shafts and you'll find differences with all of these low spin shafts

    That makes complete sense. Sometimes weight and flex are hard to separate in terms of feel.

    Look similar to the PXIs. Wonder if they took those and tweaked to this

    Looks like the original satin rifle shafts Braly designed back in the day. Those were the best shafts. That’s a big statement for 500 less rpm and a degree lower launch. Will TT provide or show how they tested it? I’m guessing Fowler and Rose would be candidates to try these....especially the 125 and 130 gram ones

    I did the same as I had the bent tip issues with c tapers, and was tired of it. I actually like the feel of PX better than c tapers, but at times I could spin the PX 6.5 a little more than I wanted to. I really didn't want to move to 7.0 and they were difficult to try anywhere. I'm hoping the 6.5 in these new PX LS will give me the great dispersion I had from PX with the spin reduction.

    I have been playing the C Tapers for 10 years now and no bent tips that I know of.

    I put a 6.5 PX in my 790 UDI and hated it. Wonder how these will feel in comparison. Only shafts that I would change into right now would be X100.

    No bent tips? You must be a sweeper or play on some really soft courses. One steep swing on my course's Texas hardpan and you'll be reshafting that club.

    That I know of.

    Just went down stairs and checked the ferrels of my clubs and they all seem fine.

    This is my 3rd set with C Tapers in the 10 years, My Scratch clubs lasted me 5 years(kept them but they are in Scotland). My Mp5s, friend is using them after I sold him them and he has had no complaints.

    I live in Houston currently and practice off mats, 3/4 times a week. Texas courses are not really that hard, I was laughing at Artisan with John when he said the green is getting really hard and I was like this feels soft to me compared to what I was used to. My home course is a Scottish links course so firm turf normally.

    Agreed. I would like to see a regular PX profile with better/different feel. Sort of like how KBS came out with the $-Taper which is basically the KBS Tour profile just with a different manufacturing process.

    Maybe I should just build a set with PX and ProSoft inserts or dowels or something.

    I would imagine these won't have the tip bending issue that CTaper does. True Temper has a major advantage being able to change wall thickness to reinforce parts of the shaft like the tip where KBS does not. Both make great shafts but they are made in different ways because of this technology.

    Im interested to see how these swing weight out and compare in flex to the normal PX and DG X100
