PGA Show 2019: Demo Day recap

Published

on

The GolfWRX crew are on deck at this week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando primed to deliver bundles of content to our members from the annual gearhead junkie extravaganza all week long.

On Tuesday, it was the show’s Demo Day, and our guys were on-hand to showcase the best of what was on display through all of our platforms. Whether it be our front page, forums, Twitter or Instagram, our crew had you covered, and here’s a recap of what our team checked out on-site yesterday.

Front Page

Kicking it off with our front page, GolfWRX’s Johnny Wunder spoke to Mizuno Golf Engineer, Chris Voshall, and got the lowdown on just what the Mizuno Shaft Optimizer is and how it’s able to select your optimum shaft by analyzing just three swings. Check out the interview here.

On the shaft front, our boys were on-hand to take a look at the new Fujikura Ventus shafts. All you need to know about these shafts from Fujikura can be found right here.

“How about some Fling Golf?” A question you may hear more often in the future. We checked out the game that incorporates a lot of traditional golf rules while adding its own funky twist. Find all the details on the quirky game here.

And here is a combined GPS, launch monitor, and skill-building unit that one GolfWRX staffer described as the “Best tech I saw today.” The Garmin Approach G80 is something you don’t want to miss. Find out all about it right here.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips. The shape of the grips has been given the seal of approval from WRXers who have been keenly discussing the SuperStroke creations in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JCM96: “Love SuperStroke’s texture and feel. If they would just release their tapered grips, they’d get a stranglehold of the putter grip market.”
  • jgolf215: “Interesting shape. The colors are pretty understated for him. I would have expected a much brighter green.”
  • nova6868: “Really like the shape on those. Would definitely buy one if they were available.”
  • GoIrish17: “What’s it say? SGP1.0? I like the shape of it; I hope it comes to retail (or SuperStroke sells them through their eBay store). It looks like a grip I’d like to try.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “New SeeMore putters”

Published

SeeMore Putter

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases an array of new SeeMore putters. The new flat-sticks from SeeMore have been a hot topic for discussion amongst our members, with the brand’s plumber neck additions garnering plenty of reaction.

For lots more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new putters at the link below.

  • bunta: “The fact that they put the alignment line on the topline of the Ancers makes me feel obligated to give them a try.”
  • poppman2142: “So the plumbers going into the head at such a severe angle is making them face-balanced I assume? I guess I would prefer the hosel to angle towards the center of the face and have the shaft angle back where it enters the hosel, so I don’t see the entire length of the hosel at address to make it face balanced. To each their own I guess!”
  • MaineMariner: “Those are some very interesting and unique hosels. Gotta hand it to SeeMore, they sure are innovative. I could definitely see myself grabbing that plumber’s neck notchback.”
