***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.

Ventus blue vs GD AD DI

I’ve been playing the ad di 6s and like the feel but my SS is up to 106-108 and it’s feeling a bit to loose and is launching too high.

Was wondering how the feel would be in comparison to the Ventus blue 6s or 6x with velcore.

    Ventus Blue will feel tighter with less of the big DI kick. Knowing nothing else about ur swing, Ventus Blue should bring launch and spin a bit lower. It’s my current gamer in 6x coming from ad TP. Ventus blue and TP feel similar to me, while i found the DI to be very loose feeling.

    Maybe obvious but why wouldn’t u try DI in 6X first?

    Yeah that’s a good idea. I really just have read so much hype about Ventus I really want to try it!

    Trust me I completely understand wanting to try/test new and different shafts, this is WRX after all. Ventus blue w/velocore is a great shaft, it’s one of those shafts that is a little hard to describe on paper and probably doesn’t do it enough justice. It feels lively and tight at the same time, and for the type of launch it gives me the spin stays decently low. Now launch/spin are not a shaft characteristic, but a result of where impact is made on driver face (there are a few other factors as well). But Ventus blue does for me what Fuji claimed it would do, tighten dispersion and increase consistency.

    Yeah I’m sure I best off keeping my shaft and getting fit. I picked up a smoke black 6s just to try and after 3 range sessions and 2 rounds, I can confidently say the shaft isn’t for me.

    Maybe I’ll try and grab a used addi 6x until I can find a way to try out the ventus later this year.
