***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.

    Bastain Milled and Slighter would probably be your best bets if you’re looking for a new neck.

    I’m actually considering doing a zero offset flow neck Scotty 5w myself. I detest single bend shafts but I like the head quite a bit.<br />

    Kyle at Bastain milled does these conversions all the time. He as an Instagram account.<br />

    Slighter has retired, Bastain does great work. I had him convert a plumbers to a long neck plumbers and it was amzing, just don't expect a quick turn around on craftsmanship.

    I am glad I stumbled upon this thread. I have an original Mike Method putter that I love the feel and everything about. I just cannot stand a plumbers neck and was ready to sell. If there is an option for a slant or flow neck I would keep. I sent Kyle a note to check in this type of job. I am hoping it can be done and at a reasonable price.

    That Depends on what “reasonable” means to you. The conversion will cost FAR more than that Nike putter is currently worth.

    This is 100% correct. I spent more than what I paid for my X5 to add the flow neck...but I love the putter so it was worth it to me.

    Peter at the PutterRoom in the UK is fantastic! He does all kinds of modifications at a very reasonable cost and the quality is fantastic! He’s modified two putters for me and I have nothing but praise for him.
