Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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.

Hiya all,

I got my son a set of G410s 5-UW with reg flex shafts. He is 10.5 years old and 59" tall. He is playing with the 8 PC Callaway set currently.

The plan is to change out the shafts to KBS 4-PW so it would be soft stepped and then pick up another 2pc of PW shafts for his 54 and 58 wedges.

I have no idea of what the KBS reg or stiff Flex will bring to the table with my son's swing speed. He carries his 7i about 105 and his 13 degree driver with an adult head and ladies flex shaft about 140 yards carry.

Has anyone experienced the KBS'?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.


Thanks

    No experience on those shafts but beware of the cost associated with custom irons.

    Whatever shaft you get him at that age will last no more than a year.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. Yes it sure can get expensive. When I bought the club heads it was nice that they had reg flex xp105's and nice grips. Hopefully I'll only have to do shafts a couple more times. I'm thinking he will out grow the 410's and may need a better set for shaping his shots.
