Update 8/17 - New board going live today.

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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.

Should I go with Ping G400?

Hey all, I am in the process of upgrading my driver and would like some advice before I purchase. I have been playing for about 9 months and I and I have been using a 9* Nike Sasquatch driver with a regular flex shaft that I got for free when I first started playing. My average carry distance with it is around 250-260yds. I think I would benefit significantly from a newer driver with a stiff shaft. I am looking for something forgiving that I can find more fairways with. My top choice right now is a Ping G400, standard version. I am also interested in the Epic Flash and the 2016 M2 if I can find one in decent shape. I know a lot of it is personal preference and depends on my swing, but I was just looking for some advice from some of you guys who have used these drivers. I am also open to other suggestions and recommendations.

Thanks in advance!

    I am sure you know that getting fit would be your best option. I would suggest a Ping G410, they are marked down right now. I had played a Ping G30 for the last 7 years, and just switched to the 410 after getting fit by a Ping fitting specialist, and it has been a game changer for me, I am finding a lot more fairways. I have not gained any distance, but I am now in play much more often and to me that's more important. Good Luck.

    Those are all good drivers.
