PXG 0811 X & XF GEN 2 Driver Thread

Recommended Posts

Not sure I can reveal what I’ve been told after a few whiskeys, but they sell a fck ton of equipement already. I’m not in the industry so no idea how many clubs Honma / Miura is shifting but PXG is selling A LOT.

Total opposite of what I’ve been told......

+1. If I hadn't bought new clubs last Spring, I would be test driving PXG along with my other favorites. Maybe next time...

Best performing irons for me in all three fittings last year. They’re no joke..... Well, except for the price. They’re not that much better to warrant 2-3 times what I’ve paid in the past.

They have been selling a lot. It may not be to the level of what the big guys sell but it’s like what a Wilson, tour edge and others might consider a lot would be nothing compared to TM, Callaway, etc.  they were doing well and then after the announcement of gen 1 50% discount for general public and the pxg for heroes which had a biggerb discount they couldn’t keep up with ordered for both gen releases. There was a 4+ week backlog on orders

Nobody says how much the fitting costs.

If fit by the pxg reps it’s free. Kinda like a typical demo day but on an appointment basis only. I did a fitting in August

I live about two miles from a PXG certified vendor and plan on giving these a shot. PXG looks like they’re working on re-penetrating the market. There’s no good reason not to try them out.

Hmm. Lots of differing stories out there then. Interesting.

I'm interested to see the performance of the drivers compared to others.  I'll admit I drooled a little after seeing the pictures of them just hope they can put up the numbers.  I might have to go to club champion and schedule a driver fitting this year to swing them.

With all the head configurations and shaft combinations, a free fitting is a deal.

I think it’s partky due to not much info shared from them on their numbers so unless talking to someone there or a dealer it’s hard to know for sure.

It’s probably going to cost a fitting fee if going to one of their authorized facility like any other brand you would get fit by, but if you go on their site and schedule a fitting that is normally done with their local rep. Mine was done at TPC Potomac and they actually had their rep who covers DC area, Delaware and parts of PA and iirc NJ come down just for my fitting as they had no other one booked. The did one at the beginning of August and scheduled a second at a couple weeks later and I was only one booked and instead of canceling/rescheduling the rep came down and did the fitting and in between my booking and the fitting day they did get two other fittings(one was for a client who did an indoor fitting and wanted to double cb em his fitting outdoors). Was charged for the clubs, grips and shipping only.

their reps have a ton of shafts with them too so yeah it’s a deal

Not much to add from what was already said but I’m with everyone in terms of being excited to try it out. Not far off from what I spent on my g400...but can’t beat the price of it compared to previous years models.

After seeing an Instagram post yesterday by the MGS guys on these, they moved to the top of my list for fitting.

I’m going for a fitting next Saturday. Putting it up against my TS3. It will have to seriously perform for me to purchase, but I’m curious to see how it compares. Will report back then.

I really need to hit some of there stuff, especially if the prices are getting closer to everyone else. I love the looks of the 0811

So, 10 yards longer carry vs 0811X Gen1. 400 revs less spin.

109 swing speed, 1.46-1.51 smash factor (a lil under the weather!) ~9 degree launch, 1900-2100 spin, longest carry was 265 with 15 yards rollout.

Funnily enough with the  TPT swing speed went down to 106 (tho they use the changable shaft adapters, and it put the SW to D7, then had to tinker with the head weight). And the ball speeds stayed the same.

AND Its the same story with Gen1 vs Gen2 - the 109 swing is ~3/4mph slower than my Gen1 and i’ve not lost any ball speed.

Good info and I’ve heard the txg guys say that slower ss doesn’t always equate to slower ball speed or less distance if everything is optimizefoptimized

      Follow our three testers of the Tour Edge EXS Driver as they bring you all the details and performance of this under the radar driver.  Will it perform for them, does it sound like a driver that would fit your game?  They will leave no stone un-turned or ball un-hit in the effort to bring you a in depth and fully unbiased review of the driver.
      They will start with their Stage Ones which give you a good look at the brand new driver and tell you about their games.   While they are putting the driver in play over the next month to six weeks, they will update this thread with their thoughts and be available to answer any questions the community may have.  So fire away with anything you want to know about the Tour Edge EXS!

      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?

      Last August I picked up a new PXG Brandon putter in a black finish and overall I have felt just so-so when putting with it. I am a 1.8 handicap and came from a very old Scotty Cameron Newport 2 that I had liked and been happy with it for many years. I went to PXG for a softer feel off the putter face as well as just a change when I am looking over the putter.  After doing some tests with both the PXG and the Scotty Cameron here were my results... 
      Looks:
      In terms of looks both look relatively the same with the PXG have a slightly shorter hosel than that of the Scotty Cameron. I have enjoyed the PXG's screw design and it adds a nice touch as well as seems to be an interesting weight design that PXG is known for. However, the screws on the top could be a distraction if you are used to a normal style blade putter. However, PXG has removed the screws from the top in their new Brandon Gen 2. 
      Performance from the fringe:
      After testing both putters from 30 feet off the green I felt like the PXG performed better from the fringe and was much softer at impact whereas the Scotty felt a little bit firmer from this length. Overall both were not uncomfortable to put with. 
      Performance from 5 feet:
      This is where I started to have an interesting time with the PXG. While putting off the green and not feeling as much of an impact was nice inside 5 feet I had a hard time judging how much speed to give it as the PXG was very soft and almost felt like air when putting at these distances. Downhill puts were very hard as it felt like I wasn't even putting the ball and would blow it by the hole. 
      Price and Value 
      In terms of price I would say $499 for the PXG seems a bit excessive. While I fully understand they are luxury golf company, spending $499 just seems to be a bit much for one club in the bag. However, if you like a softer feel I would completely recommend the PXG. 
      Score (1-10):
      PXG= 7.5
      Scotty Cameron= 8.5
