***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.

S/money taper lite.

Trying to find out some more info/opinions on these and having a hard time digging some up.


Anyone have some input? Currently playing 1050 and like how they feel, losing a bit with the extreme launch.

    Sorry, I have not tried $taper. Just wanted to share that I wish there was a shaft that was a mix of 1050 and Modus 105.

    How do you like the 1150's?

    The 1150 are only in my wedges but I do like their feel. But like the 1050, I think their a little high launch and high spin.


    But I Def need to error on that side as I'm a freak low spin guy who does better with higher launching shafts

    You could try and find a set of Nippon super peening red. Same weight as the 1150 but should spin a touch less.

    I haven't hit them. But a KBS fitter told me very similar feel to CTL, just launches higher with a bit more spin.
