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.

Do I have the right shaft?

I just got fit into Kbs tour c taper lite stiff. I want to see some opinions on if the fitter made a solid recommendation.

Goals: lower ball flight, consistent dispersion.

Track man stats:

7 iron: 155 (carry) / 163(total)

Swing speed: 83 -85

Ball speed : 113ish

Angle of atk: -2

Face angle +- 1.5

Max height: 100

Angle of decent: 50

My common miss is a fade at about 3-5 degrees closed or I'll miss a groove or 2 low. I'm 6 foot tall and I'm pretty confident that standard length clubs are right for me. What are your thoughts is this the right shaft for me?

    If it gave you the best results in the fitting, that's the only way to tell if it's the best fit. A good fit is ONLY about how that shaft performs for you compared to other options. You can't just look at the shaft model and the results for just that one shaft and say how good a fit it might be.

    Well I love it and I hit them well so I guess it doesn't matter than.

    If results are good and you like them then I’m guessing he’s right. Play them for a few rounds and then see if you still have questions.

    According to KBS, CT lites are mid-high launch and you want lower launch. Maybe try PX LZ 6.0? DG120? Try the Mizuno shaft optimizer for some suggestions. But if you are happy with what you have, stick with them.
