***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.

Hey Everyone!

Curious if this possible or if I am just crazy :)

Can you pull the shaft off of a spider x and put a different shaft in it? If so, how would one go about that?

Basically, looking to swap their stock single bend with an odyssey double bend.

Thanks!

    The double bend Odyssey putter shafts are designed for putter heads with 71° bore or spud angle leaning towards the heel . They are made to add offset only...The Spider X and many Cameron's that use a single bend shaft have a bore / stud angle of 90° lie , but leaning towards the face ( this is what creates the offset) adding lie angle only ( tipping this shaft can also influence the dangle angle)

    Using a double bend Odyssey shaft with the Spider X will result in a very upright lie angle , and twice the offset....

    All info I had no idea about. This would have been a failed experiment. Super appreciate the info and explanation.

    The bigger goal I was hoping to accomplish was getting a double bend in the spider x somehow. With the stock offering only being a single bend. I do know the spider your model had a double bend option. Would one of those fit in this setup or is there DB shaft that would fit in an Spider x?

    Thanks a ton for the time and help.

    The common double bend shafts shafts are made for a vertical, straight up from the head , 90° bore or spud angle. There are some variations for more or less offset depending on amount of bend in the lower tip area of the shaft .....that will allow for half to full shaft offset options..... in the Spider X with the half shaft option , you would end up with about 1and a half shafts of offset...I own a Bettinardi plumbers neck Anser style putter with 1 and a half shafts of offset and It dosen't have any adverse effects on playability......

    After a quick search, I could not find an example of a Spider X with the 90° bore.. only options for hosel were short slant, single bend, and flow neck.....
