***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.

Difference in length between shaft with Cobra adaptor or Taylor Made adaptor

Just like it says.

I have a shaft with a Cobra adaptor that I want to install a Taylor Made adaptor on.

Right now, with the Cobra adaptor it plays at 45". What will the playing length be with the Taylor Made adaptor?


Thanks!

    It's not the adapter that determines that but rather the particular head models you're switching between. Can't say for Cobra, but not all TM drivers have the same BBGM (bottom ground to bore).

    But TM driver heads at least are generally on the longer end of what's common among the different OEM's. So you likely wont loose any playing length. Might even gain 1/4".

    Thanks Stuart. My thinking the adaptors potentially had different depths to insert that shaft.

    more specifically. I am talking a shaft from A Cobra Speed Zone Xtreme going t9 a Taylor Made Sim Max. The club played at 45” in the Cobra.

    Insertion depth doesn't effect playing length. It might effect how much shaft prep shows after switching adapter but that's it.
