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 or PM's. 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.

Mizuno MP-68

    Maybe the best blades ever after playing Wilson Staff and Hogan blades these clubs rock MP68 black nickel may also be the prettiest club on the planet. My back up KZG ZO

    I love these clubs. The only thing that would make me switch would be my wearing out of the faces. Great Mizuno feel with a lot more forgiveness than you would expect from this style of iron. The above poster is correct, these heads with the KBS Tour is butter. While I am not the best at curving the ball at will, controlling trajectory is very easy with the 68's. My only complaint would be, that the short irons can be a little spiny at times. Maybe this is shaft related, I don't know. What I do know, is they look, feel, and play amazing. Love them!

    Flawless. Perfect grind and sooooooo solid. Surprisingly high trajectory which I like and think is best for the modern game. Long too, I feel I can really bust em. First irons made this club ho say "I do."

    these irons are so sick. I have never seen them with anything but project x though which is a shame. I wanted x100s in these bad boys but had to settle with the mp 67s

    These irons succeeded in replacing my Titleist 681's, which I thought I would never take out of the bag. I Prefer the sole grind of the 681's, but these MP's are such a total package. Amazing feel, Great Control/Shot Shaping, above average forgiveness, and a solid sole grind. My only true complaint would be the finish, too shiny, which leaves me with my current intrigue regarding the Titleist MB 712's. We Shall See...

    What did you choose? I favor the MP-68's, even over the MP-69's, but my #1 choice is still the MP-33's.

    My 68's beat out my old set of 33s. They were softer with a more consistent trajectory, and more forgiving (did want to go a touch straighter). The sole grind is better on these and the short irons aren't as big and clunky as the 33s. My only complaint is that the 4 iron doesn't go quite high enough with X100's so I may have to change it out. It not really like hitting blades, its almost like cheating. pimp.gif

    I gamed the MP68's all year. I really like how they look at address, great feel, fairly easy to shape shots. I was also able to dial in on my targets better than ever.

    Agree...I also had 681s for nearly 10 years prior to the 68s. Killer combo with KBS Tour X...like nothing else I have felt.

    These beauties feel and perform as well as just about anything out there and I've hit them all. I'm going between my Callaway Musclebacks and these Mizuno MP 68s. Too close to call just yet. We'll see when I'm really playing in mid season form.<br />

    Thanks to the young guys at my Club, I got to play these some when we played a round this AM. GREAT!..is all I can say, but my old 14's still do the job, and my playing partner liked them as well. I was amazed at the distance these young guys hit the ball. The new clubs are fine, and his Titlest Driver was great, as well. At 72, I rely on my short game...LOL. Hope they invite me agaain, but WOW!...am I ever tired....!<br />

    I absolutely love these irons. The feel is incredible and they're a real joy to hit. I have them shafted with S300s and love the ball flight.

    I played with the 68's and the stock DG R300 shaft for three months....pretty darn good clubs...but they became truly GREAT clubs when, last fall, I reshafted them with KBS Tour shafts. Absolutely phenomenal! I've been a blade guy for dang near 60 years...in the basement reside a set of MP29's and my 1968 Wilson Staff DynaPowers which I take to the course once a year. The MP68's are the best!

    Just bought a set brand new mp-68 in the box yesterday. Went to the range and it's best feeling club I have ever owned. It's my first set of blades so I was a little nervous. After going to the range I felt like I have been playing them for years.

    I just picked up a used set for $200 in really great condition. KBS tour shafts and new golf pride multi grips. Tried them in the shop and it was like a hot knife thru butter.<br />
    Played my first round yesterday and hit every green that required me using the 68's!!! Wow! Yeah, mis-hits are a bit harsh, but that's good feedback. Once I play them a while a get used to them, they'll get better.
