***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.

I just purchased a hybrid from him. Because of the time of year when porch pirates are bad, I asked him if he would send signature required. He did so and without any additional charge. The item arrived as advertised, well packaged, quicker than I could ever imagined and confirmed by Ping to be authentic.<br />
<br />
Put him on your list of approved Ebay Sellers. He is top notch!

    Mike's is great. I'd say his inventory skews a tad on the older side, but he has some good deals.

    Agreed. Good seller. I’d also put Mr. Tope’s Golf up there with Mikes. Always good people to deal with.

    Bought many things from M’sGO either via eBay or through website (get on their email list for deals) and have always been happy. Best one was buying a used epic sz 15* head from them at a great price. Received in great condition, used for many months and happened to noticed one day that it had a TC serial number. Never hesitate to buy from them! They also have a great trade in program that will take in many items beyond clubs.

    Bought a few things from Mike's, nothing but positive things to say. It's a bit cheaper if you go through the website versus eBay... plus there are often 15% off coupons on the website and free shipping.

    If you’re ever passing through Hartford, CT you should stop by and see his place. Been a few years since I was there, so maybe double check first that he’s still open to the public. He’s across from the old Golfer’s Warehouse space for anyone who’s local to Hartford and is old enough to remember Golfer’s Warehouse. And yes, it’s literally a warehouse. Just an absolute club ho’s dream. Very cool place and a great guy.

    They offered me some money back, but I don’t think what they offered is acceptable when I bought a “brand new” head. A chip like that can easily spread so if I’m going to take that risk then I think I should get more back. <br />
    <br />
    I’m awaiting a response to my reply and will update when I receive one.

    I used to live nearby. You should see the place! It's in some ratty industrial estate and tucked away to boot. But, once through the door your head spins. Nothing fancy, just wall to wall and floor to ceiling racks of clubs . . . whatever you want, they've got three or thirty-three of 'em somewhere in the joint.

    I did a trade it to Mike's and got a label to ship my club to them for free which was cool. I also got my trade credit just a few hours after they received the club that very same day. A+

    The good - yeah, I bought many things from Mikes. great & fair prices and quick ship. I can't recall ever having a bad bad or shipment from Mike. Unlike quickship and some others who come in really thrashy boxes.<br />
    <br />
    The bad - pray that Mike's not selling the same club as you're selling. He's hard to beat. If you do, you'll have to "ride" it out. His prices are close to real market. But fair.
