PXG 0811 X & XF GEN 2 Driver Thread

Recommended Posts

wondering if you'd PM me the reps contact info?  I'm in Tampa area but could drive up to Orlando for a fitting.  Thanks

I called their customer service line, and they looked-up the rep for the areas I was going be for work. I then called the rep and set everything up through her. PXG is VERY helpful.

Had a chance to hit this during my Club Champion fitting.  First impression - looks nice, but felt REALLY heavy.  Dispersion was good, but ball speed wasn't.  Did not like the sound or feel either - felt kind of dead.  Was my first time ever hitting a PXG club and I came away severely underwhelmed

This is why we need to try clubs. I absolutely loved the feel and sound.

My PXG Gen 2 driver just shipped out today - tracking says it should be here by Saturday. 

Just in time for temperatures that are in the negatives! Gonna have to get to the indoor range - 

If anyone is interested, I can post some trackman data from my range, and also my thoughts once I get the driver!

One week from now, I’ll have completed the PXG Gen 2 driver fitting. Can’t wait! If it doesn’t beat the G400 Max, no big deal... Still going to be fun!

I tested all the new drivers for a golf mag this year... And I’d suggest that you try the Ping G410 PLUS. Even tho I’m playing PXG gen2 myself it’s the only one that I think could kick it out of the bag.

Update to my previous post:

Got my new PXG Gen 2 driver today in the mail! My first impression is that it is lightweight.. It has to be the carbon fiber crown. 

I have the 0811x Gen 2 9 degree loft with a Tensei CK Pro Blue 70tx shaft which is 77g - and it feels way lighter than my old M1 which had a Tour AD BBx7 shaft which was 76g. 

Face looks like it sits very square, and the alignment aid is great.. Also I got the midsize grip which doesn't seem midsize, it seems like a couple extra wraps but is super comfortable. 

Haven't hit it yet, but hopefully will early next week. But wanted to give you guys some pictures.

Alright so I went to the outdoor range yesterday and hit off the mats - we got a blast of 50-60 degree weather here in Ohio and you would have thought it was 85 and sunny around here. 

I kept the weights in their standard position without any tweaking - So, first thing that stood out to me was the sound. It's a loud thud, almost hollow sounding. I don't really mind it but I know some people really care about sound. For me as long as its not an ear piercing "ping" I'm okay with it. 

The "x" and the lines on the carbon fiber crown help with alignment, and I felt like I could tell if the face was closed or opened at address which is super helpful and I think will be for most people. 

What I found to be pretty cool was the face of the club being made of some titanium alloy it showed where the ball struck on the face every single shot... No need to spray the club with foot spray or whatever- the club did it. And I understand that I hit maybe 15-20 balls with it, but it was nice. Maybe as I use it more it'll stop, but for now I'll take it. Oh, and you can wipe the face off and the marking goes away. 

Today I'm headed to a local indoor range that has Trackman in the bays. So I'll get a trackman report with some numbers and I'll update one more time if you guys aren't tired of it haha.

This weekend I had the opportunity to attend a PXG fitting event and hit the new Gen 2 X driver.  My first thought after hitting that driver was WOW!  This is the first time I've ever hit a PXG driver, and it didn't disappoint.  With 2019 being the year of the driver, I've been hitting every driver out there to see if there's one that can improve my game. 

The current leader for me has been the Titleist TS2 driver.  I was seeing ball speeds increase to 162 mph on 109 mph swing speed.  Dispersion was extremely tight and total distance was right around 300 yards.  This was until I hit the PXG...sorry, but I'm going to steal Bob Parsons' famous saying, "Ka Boom Baby!" 

I thought the commercials were a bit over the top to say the least, but that was until I hit the driver.  They have been advertising nothing, but speed on their Instagram.  Showing all their tour sponsors in racing helmets, and I now understand why.  At one point I saw a ball speed of 167 mph!!!  We were hitting of Trackman for both the TS2 and the PXG.  The lowest ball speeds I saw were still beat out the TS2 at 163 mph.  I figured with those speeds that there was no way that it would be consistent, but again I was proven wrong.  At one point I had 3 drives directly on top of one another.  The distances between my farthest left and right drives were way inside my Ping G LST.  

I'm still waiting to hit the new G410, but even Ping has its work cut out on this one.  Once I am able to hit it, I'm going to talk to the PXG rep and do one more hit before I buy my new driver.  I want to put my top 3 head-to-head-to-head in a final showdown if you will.  Right now that final 3 is looking like the order going into that is:

1) PXG Gen 2 X

2) Titleist TS2

3) Ping G400 LST

We'll see if the G410 can punch it's ticket to the finals and knock off the new top seed!

Why Parsons went with Chocolate and Cream for head cover colors, I’ll never know. Yuck!

Hahah I thought the same thing when I got my driver in the mail and opened it up... Brown? I figured black would be the only option .... 

I will say it's pretty heavy duty, and I think I'm going to keep my Daphne Head cover at home this year.

Here are some of my trackman numbers with the 0811X - 

My thoughts after having well over 100 swings with it now as that I do like it.. I like the sound a lot, and really like the look of it. 

I will say that it isn't the fastest head on the market (Sorry Bob) - My club head speed has been around 113-117 with the PXG but when I went to Club Champion for a new driver shaft in it, the fitter wanted to see what I could do with the new M5 head - same shaft I was in the 117-121 range and I thought the M5 head felt heavy than the PXG. 

I am super happy with the driver, and am looking forward to playing it this year. Looking at the numbers below, I'll post three different shafts with the caveat that my previous driver, an M1 440 with a BBx7 I was carrying the ball about 305 with a swing speed averaging about 120 (don't believe me I can post some numbers haha)

 

These numbers are with a Mitsubishi Tensei CK Pro Blue 70tx - a lot of pushes with this shaft. 

365646238_ScreenShot2019-02-12at1_54_37PM.png.1b4a2712a713f491e6e074f664256a99.png

 

After getting fit at CC the Speeder 757 TR X Stiff is what the fitter ended up putting me - but we are going to cut it down to 44.5 length - I liked these number and would hit a really nice draw - I launched them lower than I ever have hit a driver before, and it honestly felt like a springboard right at impact. These numbers were after trying about 10 other shafts for around 60 swings - I'm hoping cutting the shaft down will help my smash and therefore my ball speed, and carrying distance.

Lastly, I just wanted to post this - the Speeder Evolution IV but in a Stiff 3 wood shaft. I didn't see any dip in club head speed, and saw ball speed, and distance go up - even the one I launched at 13 still got over 300 total - This is the reason my fitter cut down the TR above - To be honest, I don't know why we went with the TR over this one- but maybe it's cause he didn't want to put me in a Stiff shaft (they didn't have XS in the store) and my spin was a bit higher with the IV. 

1222813726_ScreenShot2019-02-12at1_55_17PM.png.75264a68d598310b64e26e8fab3039b0.png

 

Thanks for reading guys

I was fit for the Gen 2 0811x the last week of Jan in Scottsdale at PXG HQ. I loved the feel and sound of it more than anything. Numbers were good, ball speed up from my old epic, spinning mid 2's which for me is low I tend to be higher 2's even mid 3 on a mis hit. Was fit into the even flow white 6.5 65. Saw some people asking how much the fittings cost, I was told ahead of time it would be $200 but that it would be waived if I was to purchase that day. I did end up purchasing that day, but didn't get the sense I was going to be charged the 200 if I didn't. Ended up seeing Pat Perez inside hitting balls which was cool. Heads are now on backorder so won't have it for another month or so.

When I ordered mine, I had them put an extra tungsten weight in place of one of their black ones.  It allowed me to add an extra 2 grams.  It may be small, but it made a big difference for me.  By adding it to the forward heel, it didn't have any impact on spin rates either.

I was fit for the PXG 0811x w/diamana 60s 3 weeks ago at NOVO Golf (top 100 fitter).  I really like how this club frames the ball at address. I'm a huge fan of the sound and feel. Really enjoy that muted sound.  As far a performance, I would put it up there with the others.  The ball speed is a tad lower than others but dispersion was unmatched for me.  I was able to set up and put the ball where I wanted to.  Overall its a solid offering.  Side note, my swing speed is 102 and the spin I got with this set up was 2600.

I am

getting fit at the Scottsdale HQ in a few weeks. I heard it was a free fitting even if I didn’t buy. True?

      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
