Is GolfWRX even relevant anymore?

In looking at GolfWRX, it seems a bit disorganized to me. I love the organization here of how things are laid out and really intuitive. I think GolfWRX would take a lot of moderating and cleanup to turn it into what I understand it was.

Agree with the disorganized point. I am a long time member over there although not a consistent member. Have mainly used it for research regarding things I am interested in such as old persimmon woods, classic irons and the club making areas. I very much enjoy MGS and love its forum lay out-design.

I love the community here, folks are much nicer, and i have gotten to know a lot of people here (at least online).

However, there is definitely much more action on the Classifieds on golfwrx. WRXers will buy three drivers at a time, hit 10 balls with each, and then all three are up for sale because they are going back to their gamer.

Current Mills is a hand made that David did for me about 5 years ago. It's the #12 w/kickback hosel and rocker sole. The 12 is my all time favorite putter design. First one I had was late 70's version with the tiny pencil/fluted shaft. My bent grass special as I could shape just about any putt needed on fast, hard breaking bent greens. Made my buddies buy many cola's and snacks when they would challenge me (poor man/kids skin challenges) 😃.

I also collect and love the Softtails, Heritage, Traditons and Nellie models.

Ok cool you are into the newer ones-- Yep I have quite a few with the 223 pencil shaft---- The newest one I own is a Mizuno #1--- what is funny is I always wanted that very one. Did a trade deal in December and found out I could not putt with it worth a hoot but love the looks of it.

I am a member of and follow both. WRX can be excellent in learning about equipment and fitting (Howard Jones and a couple of others come to mind), but I have been flamed over there rather impolitely for stating my opinion on something and rather than argue, I just walked away, even though in my experience, what I said was true.

If they go away, I won't miss it that much.

Well yes to the new ones but at one time I had most all the original TPM's (both the #'s and Roman Numeral ones). Sold all but the 12's, wish I had kept them. I found out through research (after the fact) that while some were stamped Spalding, they were actually made in T-town or finished there. Mine were the old ones (70's/80's). IMO you have some treasures with the .223 pencil shafts -- that feel is unique to say the least. 

Side story, One year at Shoal Creek, I was volunteering on driving range. I walk up to the putting green to see if the pro's have plenty of new Titleist to putt with. It was unusually quiet and many of the pro's were on one side of the green huddled around a staff bag. I waited until they cleared out and went about their practice and walked over. Mother of God I couldn't believe my eyes, a whole bag of handmade tour Mills. Bet I took 30 pics on my phone before this guy walks over, it was David Mills. Very nice guy. I ordered my #12 right after that.  Highlight of week volunteering. 

Apologies for trying to turn this thread into a Mills one... 😀

No need to apologize here we get off the subject quite a bit around here. All but one of my Mills believe it or not came of the scrap pile at work. For some reason I get a run on putters. For a while it was TPM and then Bulls Eyes.

Not a problem, I like reading about Mills putters. I had many but sold them when we moved to FL 8 years ago. There was a couple softails I definitely miss.

You are dead on it--- from what I have found out most of those that get banned get banned for BST violations. I know for a while there was a bunch of crap going on over there. I would never list anything on BST there. Most of my stuff is vintage anyhow and does not move in general on golf sites

For golf-hoes like me, who like to tinker/trade/sell, WRX offers the best ho-ing experience that I have found. People are generally respectful and reasonable. However from an equipment review (official / unofficial) or original content perspective, I much prefer MGS.

Long time wrx member here.

They mishandled forum migration big a$$ time. And the Mods attitude was 'we don't care what you think, we only want the BST cash-cow'

 

I'm done with them and so will be many many members.
