We want our members’ WITBs! Submit your WITB to be featured on the GolfWRX front page

Published

on

Greetings, GolfWRXers!

WITB (both member and Tour) has been at the heart our site since day one. Today, it’s a major component of our front page content, and there is no shortage of member WITB threads in our forums as well.

What we’d like to do is standardize the presentation of some member WITBs and member WITB photos so we can feature them on the front page. More to the point: We want to showcase our members’ WITB in the same way we do, say, Tiger Woods on the front page.

We think that beyond the “seeing your name in lights” factor, it’ll create some really cool material for the front page and it will also be incredibly informative and helpful for fellow members.

So, what do we mean by “standardizing” the presentation?

Look at Tiger Woods’ 2020 Farmers Insurance WITB below.

Driver: TaylorMade SIM (9 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 60 TX

3-wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 70 TX

5-wood: TaylorMade M3 (19 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 80 TX

Irons: TaylorMade P7TW (3-PW)

Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100

Wedges: TaylorMade MG 2 “Tiger MT Grind” (56-12, 60-11 degrees)

Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS

Grip: Ping PP58 Blackout

Golf Ball: Bridgestone TourB XS

Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord

Additionally, we will showcase an image of the club in question for each section and a full bag shot (minimum dimensions 1024×768) as the featured image. For the purposes of the thread, feel free to add all the photos at the end or insert them throughout.

In addition, feel free to add a paragraph or two about your set up, the method behind your madness, your age, current handicap index etc. Anything you feel that’s relevant and that you think your fellow WRXers will find informative and beneficial!

We’d like you, GolfWRXers, to share your WITBs in this thread using the format above.

So get submitting your WITB in our forum as we’ll be publishing them on our front page over the coming days and weeks!

ProjectX launches HZRDUS Smoke RDX shafts

Published

on

Last week, at the WGC-FedEx Memphis St. Jude invitational, we got a sneak peek at the newest HZRDUS shaft from Project X, and now we have all the details on the new Smoke RDX.

To produce this shaft, Project X has teamed up with Hexcel, a global leader in composites technology for aerospace and military operations based in Stamford, Connecticut, for the purpose of utilizing their HexTow® carbon fibers to add more stability to the already extremely stable line of HZRDUS Smoke shafts.

Hexcel’s HexTow® carbon fibers represent the highest quality aerospace-grade carbon fiber and are used in the construction of some of the world’s most advanced aircraft including the Airbus A350 XWB, F18 E/F, A380, and more. I realize that sounds a bit generic, but when you consider some of the other applications for their materials and the fact Hexcel topped over 3.25 Billion dollars in sales last year – they mean serious business.

The Project X HZRDUS line of shafts has established itself as a shaft built for golfers with aggressive swing tempos, and that continues with the new HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX. It’s the first golf shaft to utilize Hexcel’s new HexTow® HM54 high modulus carbon fiber and combines it with high tensile strength HexTow® IM2C carbon fiber to provide the ideal blend of stiffness and stability desired by engineers to build into the HZRDUS shafts.

Smoke Black RDX profile features an ultra-stiff midsection along with a stiff tip to provide low launch and low spin performance designed to keep up with aggressive swings.  Although unconfirmed we can make the possible assumption that since this shaft has been branded the “Black” RDX there may be other profiles released that utilize the same Hexcel composites.

Specs & Pricing

Right now we are waiting on confirmation on pricing but specs, and available flexes of the new Smoke Black RDX are available below.

GolfWRX Classifieds (08/07/20): Ping G410+, Tour Issue SIM, Ping G410 LST fairway wood

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member bleuachdu – Ping G410+ driver head

This driver head might have been photographed in the rough but with the forgiveness of the Ping G410+ you’re not likely to find yourself in it too often.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Ping 410+ driver.

Member KC4441 – Tour Issue TaylorMade Sim Driver

At GolfWRX we thrive on Tour Issue gear and this is a prime example of what we love—a tour issue driver still in the plastic. This is a BYOS (bring your own shaft) kinda build, but one that I think might be worth it.

Member jblough99 – Ping G410 LST fairway head

Ping drivers and fairway woods are all over the used market for the same reason Toyotas are—quality, reliability, and just the fact that they sell so darn many of them. This G410 LST is in almost new shape and a bargain.
