PXG 0811 X & XF GEN 2 Driver Thread

Recommended Posts

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

No doubt that hitting the center of the club face is a great factor!

Looks like I’ll be doing a fitting for these on the 28th while I’m in Houston. Looking forward to it!!!

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 

I just had to cancel my fitting in Houston because they’re charging $150 for fittings with their reps. One does get to use the $150 toward the cost of the club, but you have to decide right after the fitting, you can’t use it later.
So, fittings are not free....

The Woodlands. Rep said if I’m a member of a club, they can do them free there. Well, not a member anywhere. Not sure why it couldn’t be done at a public driving range as all we were doing was using a CC range.

I talked to the rep here and there is no fitting fee when pxg reps do fittings. There’s a $159 fee if getting fit at PXG HQ.  It sounds like the course was charging.

The PXG reps tend to do fittings at courses that have accounts and/or big accounts.  There atenmy many public ranges that have accounts and they also tend to use mats and pxg prefers places that have grass. When I did my fitting last year at TPC Potomac with them I had a long conversation with the local rep and the regional fitter about all that. I had to drive nearly an hour to the fitting and then fight DC rush hour traffic to get home which would have been 90+ mins. The rep invited me to stay at the range and hit balls as long as I wanted to avoid having to sit in traffic.

I can reach out to PXG and see if I can help? I bought so much stuff from them that I believe they would make an exception... 🙂 PM me if you want.

Thanks. I’ve emailed the rep and he said that they have to do them where there is an account, and that the club in Houston charges them $150, so they pass it on to me. There is a club here in Louisiana, 30 miles from here, that has an account with them, so I’ve emailed the rep that members there would vouch for me and get me in for the day. Worse comes to worst, my buddy will be running the new Club Champion in New Orleans and he’ll have them, along with everything else to try.

The club charges them 150 PER PERSON?

Not sure if it’s per person, as I was the only one being fitted, but he said the club charges him $150....

Ok, well when they started up the fitter would actually come to you to get fitted. Now they have fitting events and in the UK they're always free to attend. If you want me to ask at the HQ - let me know as I don't mind

Or you can go join my giveaway and maybe get a free Ping 😄

Until we start seeing actual performance-testing numbers, the conversation here is about the price drop, right? An early hunch: there are some execs at Wilson that aren't thrilled right now.

They must’ve removed the space age materials from the screws to cut it down that much. 🤣

Well, I finally set-up a fitting and it won’t cost me anything. Got connected with the rep in Orlando, and she’ll fit me at Celebration on 2/6.

Your welcome. Only thing I would recommend is verify that wherever the fitting is they don’t charge pxg who then transfers the cost to the golfer as was mentioned by pmookie

      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
