  1. So being on my second set of PXGs in bag full time (5 sets of them total but thats a longer story) I don’t think there are any durability issues like my review said. Im going to start playing the 0211 for a few rounds starting Monday and will let you know my thoughts. Initial thoughts - I really don’t like progressive sets. I play 3i up in the 0311T and I’ve tried putting P, X and XF on the longer end which didn’t work for me due to my swing, attack angle and all that bullshit. I do like how they look, however I am a bigger fan of the unique ‘weight system’ look of PXG. They do feel harder off the face than the 0311T/P. For me they needed adjusting lofts to make sense of the grouping in the longer irons.
  2. Hmmm never heard about the durability issue and I've played 500 rounds with my gen1s and just over 300 with gen2s and they're pretty good condition still. I even made a post about it
  3. So, PXG released 0211 irons. A progressive size head set (4i XF -> then P size head) with the same foam inside but the whole club is cast. At half the price of the current lineup ($200/head). What do you guys think? Pic:
  4. Is there 14 full lenght ones in that or also only the horizontal ones?
  5. Copy / paste from another topic about him: "I've had the unpleasantness of meeting Shiels. He was an absolute *******. Got paid ~$5k for a corporate golf day (clinic, 3 holes with each of the groups we've had and produce a video from the event). Clinic was ok. Then during the round he didn't want to play - just wanted to hit drivers as he was 'going through swing changes' in his short game and it was 'off brand' for him to play badly. Never released the video to his audience as it wasn't good enough. Him and his agent ghosted the company after that. What a disgrace."
  6. Forgetting the fact that I dislike Shiels a lot after meeting him in person - I can barely watch Masters or Ryder Cup without wanting to go out and play so it's a "no" from me Tho if you're into reality TV there may be drama as the "golf influencers" scene in the UK is like watching Jersey Shore or some OC Housewives with the amount of bitching and backstabbing About $200 if they get over 15M from ads. Youtube changed how their monetization works as back few years ago it would have brought ~15-17k.
  7. So yeah, the fact that there are 3 not 6 dividers pissed me off a little, and they're 3/4 length not full. Also carrying stuff that has some 'edges' in the pockets shows really quickly and deforms the material. Think it could pierce it quite easily. I carry 14 clubs in it too, and I'm not suuuper happy about how they fit, but it's ok. Zipper pocket on top of the water bottle pocket is for ice But yeah, I've waited for over a month to get the bag as I ordered it with embroidery. Then 3 weeks in (after being told that it will ship on Wednesday, Monday, this week, next week) it was still not dispatched and I ordered it to be delivered when I was visiting the US so that I could have brought it back with me. It wasn't ready so I asked them to ship it ASAP without the customisation. That shipping took over a week to get to Florida and by that time I was already in the UK so with extra shipping on top it cost me over $550. Needless to say I'm a little salty about it as I wouldn't have ordered it if I expected such long shipping and mediocre customer service. For $300 it's an OK bag. For $550 I wouldn't have bought it.
  8. I've been told by them that they have full length dividers. Them being 3/4 I'd be a little pissy but not massively. Let's see when the 6 way comes (been waiting for it nearly a month now...)
  9. I've had the unpleasantness of meeting Shiels. He was an absolute *******. Got paid ~$5k for a corporate golf day (clinic, 3 holes with each of the groups we've had and produce a video from the event). Clinic was ok. Then during the round he didn't want to play - just wanted to hit drivers as he was 'going through swing changes' in his short game and it was 'off brand' for him to play badly. Never released the video to his audience as it wasn't good enough. Him and his agent ghosted the company after that. What a disgrace. Crossfield is fun/funny to watch. I have a funny story about him too Well, one of his students. I used to be friends with a guy that went onto his 'journey' and puttling lessons with Lockey. 6 months of lessons and all. From a Mizuno fanboy he went on full titleist as 'Mark said theyre the most consistent for me'. He claimed in those 6 months he went from 9 to 4hpc. Last round I played with him he 'didnt feel like a 4' on the day and asked for 8 shots After laughing at him for a bit that that's now how handicap system works I gave him 6 shots (being the generous guy that I am :)). Then he complained that we're playing from the back tees (as he said now he can hit as hard as he wants and not reach the bunkers so he doesn't need precision). Landed in 4/5 bunkers on the fairway and TOOK HIS BALL OUT and placed it before the bunker without saying anything to anyone when asked for a score until my playing partner called him out on it Also when he missed a putt he would pick up straight away if it passed the hole, even tho it would end up further than it started and called it a 2 putt He lost the match on the 11th hole and walked off without saying goodbye and we're not friends anymore So I think maybe a coach that would teach rules and etiquette on the course would be also very popular on YT ;-D Oh how fun life is.
  10. Yeah I like those bags... Pretty sure it's what a Mackenzie bag feels like too.
  11. If you're ever in the UK let me know and I'll take that bet any time
  12. The 14 way Player stand bag has full lenght dividers.
  13. Check out Vessel bags. They're pretty good!
  14. https://vesselbags.com/collections/golf-stand-bags/products/sunday-bag?variant=7967674925116 Thats my pick
  15. I have a Vessel Lite (actually a gfore killer carry but its just branded Vessel) and the quality is top notch. The 4 way not-full lenght divider is a bit of a bummer so I ordered the player 2.0 that I’ll have as my ‘full set bag’ and the killer carry as a sunday bag. I was quite surprised that Vessel didnt make it into mygolfspy list to be fair. Pockets are bigger than they seem. I also have a titleist StayDry 5 players and due to poor pocket placement I can’t fit there full waterproof set with leg thermals and gloves. On the vessel lite bag ( https://vesselbags.com/collections/golf-stand-bags/products/lite-stand?variant=9326212743228 ) the right full lenght pocket is huge. I assume the player 2.0 will be too. Only thing I struggled with was 14 or 6 dividers, but went for 6 in the end. And after customisation it only takes a week longer to deliver. EDIT: One problem i found is feet on the legs are falling off if not glued Very annoying!
