***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.

Need advice on fairway shaft weight

My driver shaft is 73 grams but play at 45.75" and my hybrid shaft is 87 grams but play at 40.5". What weight shaft would you recommend for a 3 wood as it will play around 43". It sucks as I play between a S and X depending on the shaft. My driver is stiff (3.3 torque) yet hybrid is X flex (3.2 torque). Thanks!

    I'd go like 77-83 ish grams on the 3 wood. I think as long as the weight is progression heavier as you get shorter clubs, you're good


    I go 60 driver, 70 fairway, 85 hybrid

    To understand shaft weight, we must re-calc the numbers to grams pr inch.

    Woods often starts as 46" uncut, Hybrids as 42" uncut, so even if both was "90 grams", the hybrid still has a higher weight.

    We are all different, but between woods, we "should" have 2.33 to 5 grams pr inch. 2.33 grams uncut shaft wgt progression as we goes shorter gives a shaft weight about the same as "constant weight", while 3-5 grams pr inch becomes Ascending weight.

    Your driver is to the longer end, but 2.75" shorter x 2.33 grams = minimum 6.4 grams higher start weight, and as 5 grams pr inch we get to 13.75, so anything between 7 to 14 grams up in uncut shaft weight will do, all depending on balance point and your feel preference for weight.

    Flex letters CANT be used for compare, so its no such thing as "between S and X" unless we talk one specific model and weight. Flex labels cant be used for compare of different models since they are not a reference to neither CPM or Deflection, they only tell where that shaft belongs in its own model and weight series.'

    As examples, True Temper XP 95 S is weaker than XP 115 R, and Modus 130 R is stronger than DG X100, so if model OR weight is different, this flex labels is useless for compare. We can only use them to go stronger or weaker within the same model AND weight.
