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.

Are Toulons Being Faked?

Has anyone seen any counterfeit Toulon Austins? Looking at previous gen with the sight line on top specifically.

    Resale is poor enough as is, would be a bad choice to counterfeit. I am unaware of counterfeits this far.

    Given their cost I just haven't been impressed with any Toulon I've seen to date

    Are they that bad or is it the price point? Milled blade putters with a top sight line are hard to find and the Austin looks nice in pictures. But I have no interest in paying 400$ for one and don't feel right going into golf shops with no intention of buying new at retail price. Used market is sub $200 all day long.

    Yep, used prices have dropped thru the floor, probably not much value in counterfeiting.

    I like their putters, but from a resale standpoint it’s been the worst golf purchase I’ve ever made.

    No counterfeits I’ve ever seen. When they first started the line I loved the shapes but was underwhelmed with every one I have ever touched. The feel is average and the cost is just too high.

    I have a feeling that some of the resale value is lost because Toulons just do not wear well, at least the pre-full diamond face milling ones. They show a lot of sole and face wear and it doesn't seem to take much to ding them. For that reason, used Toulons often look pretty grungy in pictures.

    I love my Atlanta. Unique shape for Toulon. Some others kind of come close but they are more rounded on the back. Bought a lile new used one over a year ago for $150ish. Heck of a deal.

    Resale is so low because of CPO. No idea why they list Toulon on there, but it has totally devalued the brand.
