Three friends here in-town all have Gen1 and said they won’t go back to PXG just because of the wear and dings.

Aren’t wear and dings part of golf club ownership. Nobody would play forged if it was for wear and dings

I don’t own them, just relaying what three friends here in-town have said. All 3 said they’ll look at other brands when they make a change because of the dings, and bag chatter.

3 friends complaining doesn’t really equal durability issues.

Doesn’t mean it’s the truth. To say a brand has durability issues it takes more than a few guys complaining. Ones truth is just an opinion. Large quantities of users having issues similar to what appears to be happening with i500s is an issue.

No need to continue to try and get the last word, or beat a dead horse about this. You have stated your opinion.

Not trying to get the last word in. It’s called a discussion/debate. You came in here to claim the brand has durability issues, I and one other person disagreed and asked for proof. You said 3 friends had issues which I disagree with as proof and you countered it was in their minds. I countered that with their unhappiness with how certain types of clubs wear doesn’t quantify the claim of the brand having durability issues.

there are readers from all over that look for info. If they come into a thread and see a brand has issues there should be facts not opinions that back up that claim. 

We should all strive to ensure information shared is as accurate as possible.

Good article by MGS and sure, if I could afford even the cheaper version, I would test them.  I am intrigued by a progressive set but I wonder from a fitting perspective if you can test all the different heads?

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.

Any updates on the 0211's after playing them some? Seriously about to buy a set and looking for some real world opinions which have been hard to find.

Sorry for late reply! They’re OK. I’ve been spoiled by forged irons. Pxg, gen2, cncpt ... So the 0211 are not the same.

Having said that - they are softer / nicer than AP2s ^-^ Gapping was an issue, and the graphite shafts in stock are an issue for me.

I cashed in on the Heroes program and got a 5-pw, gw, sw, and lw. I got them for $105 each, and got a free driver with them. I had looked at other brands, and when it came down to it, these performed just as good if not better for me, and were much less expensive than TM, Callaway, Ping, Mizuno and other major brands. I would highly recommend these for anyone. But like most everything golf it is all subjective, and what's right for me isn't right for everyone.

I have the PXG Gen 2 driver and I love it.  I did hit the 0311 irons while I was doing my fitting, just for fun.  They felt great, but not $400/club great or whatever the price.  

I'd love to give these a hit, but the one thing I'd be curious about is how they feel.  At $200/club and not being forged, I'd wonder if they would compete against a Mizuno JPX forged as an example.  Granted the AP3's feel amazing, but it would definitely be something I'd want to test.

I played JPX 800 Pro forged for the last 6+ years, and I will tell you to me the 0211's are smoother and feel better than any forged iron I have ever hit to me and I know feel is completely 100% subjective in golf. I know they are cast, but the face insert is the same face insert as the 0311's which makes them feel like a forged iron, that's how they made it possible
