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.
Tour Issue M3 head is super loud *UPDATE*
Bought this off eBay. Visually everything seems in order. Seller seems reputable. 100% feedback and sells a lot of golf equipment. However, I get to the range tonight, and the driver sounds like a frying pan. Also the feel was terrible and the head felt much heavier than my sim. A little back story. I started the season with an m3 driver. Switched to a sim but haven’t been liking it so I decided to go back to another m3 head. My old m3 had much more of a “thwack” sound to it so I’m just thrown off. Performance wise it was hard to tell with range balls and I couldn’t see the landing area enough to tell if they were landing 250 or 290. Is it common for tour issue heads to be really loud? I will update once I compare on course with regular balls against my sim.
Added a few grams of hot melt to try and tone down the sound a little and get the swing weight to D6. Since I’m using a 44.5 shaft the heavier weight in the head isn’t an issue. Sound still seems loud and feel seems on the harsher side but maybe I just got used to the Sim which is really muted in comparison. Anyways, I hit 13 fairways with it today and everything was flying my normal driver distance so if it’s a fake, I’m hitting a fake better than my Sim. Thanks for the replies.
