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.

    You need to build up the shaft butt from 0.600 to 0.660....how you do that dont matter, and tape vs tape can be very different, but Golf build up tape like the one from Mitchell adds 0.015 for each layer, using that tape its 4 layers from standard to Midsize. So use what ever tape you like, and measure shaft butt with a caliper, thats how it should be done



    Unless you are a former Customer or someone i already have a PM dialog with, i want reply to tech questions on PMs.

    I don't think that's right. standard to mid-size is +1/16" == 0.0625". The thinnest build up tape I've ever seen from golfworks.com added 0.010" per wrap - so would only be 6 added wraps. But they don't offer that tape any more. The build up tape they have now is thicker at 0.014" per wrap - so only +4 wraps.
