PXG 0311. How do they hold up after 500 rounds. Pics.


Recommended Posts

500 rounds of golf is a hell of a lot for most people. Playing more/less once a week that's ~10 years of playing.

 

PXG is a controversial brand. The price point is up there, and most people will never want to justify spending -a-driver-price- per iron.

 

Anyway, I've been lucky enough to hit 500 rounds with the clubs and wanted to show how the super-soft steel holds up. Some clubs better than others ;) 

 

Onto the pics:

Overall, I'd say they look really good. 500 rounds with a wedge (+practice) is going to take it's toll no matter what the club. These things look better than my Maxfli Rev black dots after only 200 rounds, but those things were notoriously soft. The face is fine but the bottoms are pretty dimpled up from use and chatter.

 

Going to buy PXG again to replace? Going to get the milled wedge for a grand?

I would have never guessed that those irons have 500 rounds on them! Still looking pretty good! As for that wedge.... great consistency! Did the wedge make it 500 rounds as well?

Yeah, so I've got a new set of 0311 already (got it about 3 weeks ago) as I've had a new fitting for the gen2 but wanted to get the feel of the club so when the gen2 will be here I'll be ready to take some competitions on :-)

This wedge is the milled one. Forgot to mention it, as my original 54 got really badly battered. I'm playing a 50/53/56/59 setup and this one is my most battered one. I'll upload the pic of the old one when i find it somewhere! :) 

And yes, more 0311T wedges incoming as the spin is insane, and the grooves feel illegal :D

Hah thanks! Yeah, they're looking pretty well considering I've started playing with them struggling to hit the ball but with massive amount of swing speed :)

The wedge has exactly 232 rounds in it. But it's a club I practice the most with, especially on grass (at least 4 hours of practice a week with this baby) and in bunkers, so i guess it shows :)

Those clubs are looking great for having 500 rounds on them!  My Vokey SM wedges have that same wear look (although the wear is more all over the face compared to to your wear pattern, LOL).

Haha thanks! a year and a bit ago I couldnt hit the ball from 70 yards in. So that became my biggest focus :) Now it doesnt always land 2ft from the flag, but more often than not it's either a 2 putt or a chip and a put :)

Those things look to hold up just as good as Pings do, pretty cool.

 

Now for the next test I want to see the Darkness version!

I've had the wedges in darkenss and the problem is - hitting on a range from a matt. Will all the sand and dirt it's like taking sandpaper to the top line, it was annoying me so much that i got the satin ones after only a couple of weeks.

Good feedback, so much for the most durable black finish in golf.

I collect watches as a besides-golf-hobby. And DLC there is pretty widely used in the top end brands (think Rolex, AP, Hublot) as it never fades/discolours and it's the strongest/most resilient steel coating you can have. It's very durable. Extremely. But even that - on a $50/60k watch scratches. The solution that AP and Panerai took is ceramic cases. 

There is also ceramic coating (alu oxide at high temperatures creating a ceramic coating layer) but I don't have the resources to test it tho from material engineering side it should hold up:)

Fantastic! But not surprised since they were made by a former Marine. These look like clubs someone could keep for 20 years...and if you were to annualize the cost then it makes sense.

 

BTW...how do you know the exact number of rounds?

That's impressive. With the price point, i was guessing PXG had to have been a forged piece.  Like somebody else said, they seem to be holding up like a set of pings.  Now.....That doesn't mean they are a set of pings :).  Overall, i'm impressed.  After 500 rounds, when the time comes, will you bite that much off on a set of irons again?

They look amazing for 500 rounds.

 

But something tells me that most PXGs don't make it to 500 rounds because most people playing PXG are going to stay in the latest. With what I'm hearing about the new PXGs, if I had the DI to game them, I'd definitely be buying the new ones.

Those are retired now. I just managed to squeeze 500 rounds in 2.5years :-) And with their release cycle being ~3 years - yes I guess most people will stay in the latest which is not a bad thing when it comes to being loyal to a brand :)

500 rounds of golf, they don't look a round over 200. They have lasted well.
