Current 2019 WITB. I just swapped over to all new everything to reinvent my game, and so far it's helping. I've dropped 6 strokes off my typical score and went down from  13 to a 10 on my handicap. All by getting fitted again after 6 years, and getting new gear. So without further ado...

How do you like that PXG setup? Looks like you took advantage of the heroes promo which is a ridiculous deal; I am so tempted to pursue it.

Great setup! Like the others, I would love to hear more about the irons, even if they are outside my price range.

So as you all may know the irons are cast, and a progressive set so the 3 4 5 6 7  irons are all bigger and more forgiving, and everything else down is a players iron which drew my attention. I will say I have been playing forged Mizuno JPX 800 Pro's the last 6+ years, and have hit many different forged irons. These are smoother and better feeling than any forged iron I have EVER hit, excluding the PXG 0311's. The best word to describe these is "BUTTER". These have the same face insert as the 0311's.

I did take advantage of the Heroes program being a vet, and got my irons for just over $1k. I looked at other brands, and would have spent way more on them than I did with these, and I got a free driver. I kept my Scotty and didn't upgrade that, but the M6's cost me $945 for the 3 wood, 3 and 4 hybrids, after my 15% off TM because of upcharges to my shafts.

I would recommend pursuing the deal if you can before they stop the promotion. It was the best fitting experience I ever had, and they are completely 100% free. They sent a guy from 2 hours away, and was absolutely meticulous with me. I didn't pursue the 3 wood or hybrids, because I wasn't getting the numbers I wanted out of them, and he was okay with that and didn't even pressure me. He told me just find one I like and get the Tensei Orange shaft and I'll be good. Let's say he didn't lie, being I hit my 3 wood 260 off the deck to 2 feet of a pin this past Saturday on a 569 yard par 5. 

MaxEntropy a lot of people think their irons are out of their price range, but after upgrades of other irons they're comparable. If you don't qualify for the Heroes Program they're $195. Hell Titleist new irons, as well as TM 760 790, Callaway Apex, Mizuno are all the same price.

So the good news is the local shop five minutes from home just emailed me this morning.  There is a demo day with PXG on Friday.  If these are as good as you say I hope to make it work.  Thanks for the detail 🙂

Good luck keep me posted. Obviously they aren't for everyone, but I think the 0211s are geared more towards the masses than the 0311s.

I will. I’m being honest with my swing and where my game is headed. I’ve always played blades and it’s time to evolve so I can reduce some errors on the course. If it’s not now or these aren’t for me it’ll likely be pushed off til next season.

It never hurts to try something new, and if it works it works, if not you keep on trucking until you find something that you do.I will say a couple more things about the clubs. They have workability not near as much as a blade, but they are workable for what an amateur would need. The blades are longer than other clubs on the 0211's and when Bob said they have a sweet spot the size of Texas he wasn't lying. Even mishits towards the toe and heel are in the outer part of the sweet spot. I'm glad I haven't seen a ton of PXG bashing like everywhere else on the internet I.E. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc...

People are going to say what they want to say. I’m at the point where I just want to play better and I really don’t care how I look while doing so.

Thanks for sharing brother.

Yeah I had a friend tell me I'm bouji, or what ever the word is, and I'm only bought them for status. (Abbreviation for the term bourgeoisie, which in laymen terms means stuck up, snobbish, or just thinking your better than others because of your economic status.) If you don't know what it is. Told him I don't give a s***, I got what I feel will help my game. Also, I pointed out that I got them for less than what I would have paid for other brands. I'm far from thinking I'm better than everyone because of my economic status. God Forbid I've done something with my life to make good money, to take care of my family, and am financially responsible. 

Keep me posted about Friday. I will be heading out on vacation on Saturday for our yearly family Disney trip. I will check in on the app when I get a chance.

I’m glad this was unlocked.

So my first thought after hitting the 0211’s were that Parsons’ claim is accurate; these things have a sweet spot the size of Texas.

This is a well thought out set of clubs that has a really nice progression from long irons to short.

I’m glad I did hit them and to be honest, I really lingered on ordering a set. At the end of the day I was going to sell the driver and play the irons, a move that is dirty and disrespects the purpose of this promotion.

You’ve got a great bag. Have fun playing and hopefully playing well.

Thanks Ben. Glad you liked them. I know I made a comment earlier about that I felt it's wrong to sell the driver or putter for a profit, and it was not geared at you. You could always get the deal and not request the driver. That way you don't feel it's dirty or disrespectful to the promotion. Just a thought.

Definitely didn’t take it that way

The truth is that there was no way in hell that this driver would kick my G400 out of my bag.

There’s no shortage of Gen1’s on the bay right now. That means one of two things: it’s either a giant coincidence or there are folks who are subsidizing the cost of their new irons.

I think a lot of people are getting them for free trying them, finding out that it's not for them, or didn't know they could get fitted for free, and choose a stock shaft option, that isn't for them. Don't like it and sell it. I was fitted for mine, and before I ordered I took the same shaft (MC CK Tensei Orange S Flex) and tried several other major club brands matched with it M6, Epic Flash, G410, M5, TS2, 3, and found that the PXG produced about the same numbers for me, although a couple others were slightly longer no more than 10 yards, none of them were as forgiving, and as straight as this for me. The pictures are of my very first hit on a launch monitor with only a couple practice swings nowhere near warmed up after I got my PXG and took it to compare if I made the right decision, which I did The carry went from 261 to 288 and overall from 288 to 301 once I was fully warmed up and club head speed went from 106 to 109-110 ball speed is where I saw a big gain 154 to 162 on average. These numbers are all on par with a typical club head speed of 110. I have never been able to hit a controlled draw with a driver in my life until this hit my bag, I'd always duck hook or slice the ball from leaving the club face open at impact. I know not every club it right for every person, but I'd be damned if this wasn't right for me lol.

      Introduction
      My name is Matt I'm 36 that lives here in Mechanicsville, VA (Richmond Area). I have 2 awesome little daughters who are 8 and 7, and an amazing gorgeous wife who is way too hot for me and out of my league. I'm pretty lucky. I work in IT for the IRS, love all Chicago sports teams Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks, and Bulls. I am obsessed with Disney as is my family, we go once if not twice a year every year. I have been an avid golfer since I was 13. Before I met the best thing ever to come into my life, my wife, golf really saved me when I got out of the Air Force in 2006 and was dealing with PTSD. I got my handicap down to a 5, because I fully immersed myself into it to get away from all my demons, and horrible thoughts in my head. For these reasons, I will never turn my back on the sport as it was there when I needed something that can't be explained the most at that point in my life. Unfortunately due to 4 knee surgeries a meniscus repair, a meniscus removal after tearing it for the 2nd time 4 years to the day after I tore it the first time, a meniscus implant, and a clean out around my ACL, my game has slipped severely over the last 9 years since my original injury in 2010, and only being able to play as much as my knee would let me. My knee is finally back to 100% and can dive back into the sport I love. I am currently a 15 handicap and working my way back down slowly. I never lost my swing, but I need to get back to where I was mentally. All of my extra strokes come from mental errors and minor misses, and getting down on myself because I know I can be as good as I once was if not better. I have gamed Mizuno JPX 800 Pro forged irons the last 6 years since 2013, and have always felt there is no better feeling iron to me than Mizuno's, then I went out on a whim, and decided to overhaul my whole bag from bag all the way down to putter this year. I got fitted for PXG 0211's and from the moment I hit the first ball, I was addicted to them. So without further ado here is the review below.
      These are from our Disney trip we just got back home from on Aug 18th. Also, sorry for such large photos (but details right?).

      About the club
      These are PXG's first cast club. I feel they are PXG's answer to reach the masses, and make an affordable club for all golfers.
      According to their website they state "We packed our 0211s with three key GEN2 technologies. First and most important is a hollow body design filled with our proprietary COR2 polymer, the world's thinnest club face (made possible by the COR2) and a 360-degree undercut perimeter channel around the club face that expands the functional size of the face. These three technologies combined result in a club that goes farther, launches higher, feels softer, sounds great, is more forgiving and has a sweet spot the size of Texas."
      Looks 10 out of 10
      The PXG 0211 irons are a progressive iron set, meaning the amount of offset gradually decreases the shorter the clubs become. For example, the 4-iron has slightly more offset than the 5, and so on through the wedges.
      Progressive sets offer more forgiveness in the long irons, where it's needed most for all golfers. There isn't much offset needed in the 8-iron up due to golfers being more proficient with them.
      In the long irons, the 0211 have a very good offset and a little noticeable sole sticking out past the top line.  When you get to the scoring irons, the 0211 there is less offset and less sole sticking out.
      I would put these into the middle of a players and game improvement iron. They have somewhat of a slim top line, a decently wide sole, and the blades are longer than most players irons, and Bob Parsons wasn't lying when he said they have a sweet spot the size of Texas. 
      They are absolutely gorgeous at address. 

      Sorry these are the only photos I have at address and it's the PW. But aren't the center strike ball marks BEAUTIFUL?

       
      Sound & Feel 10 out of 10
      These feel absolutely smoother than any golf club I have ever hit. Forged or cast, this is due to hollow body design with their proprietary COR2 polymer. When hit they leave no doubt that the ball is going for a long ride. They are very very soft with a spring like sensation off center faced strikes. It has a very nice strong and clean mid pitch at impact, that gives immediate feedback for mishits, which are hard to do with their sweet spot.
       
      Performance 10 out of 10
      Having been fitted by a PXG fitter I had high expectations for what theses should produce, these expectations were met and surpassed in all categories. 
      Borrowed this from another site so I'm quoting "The 0211 features the same face material (HT1770 maraging steel) as the 0311 GEN2, which works in conjunction with PXG’s more responsive second generation COR2 polymer material – the goo filling that allows for the thinnest iron face on the market – to preserve ball speed across the whole of the face.
      Like the 0311 GEN2, it offers an internal face perimeter cut-out. It’s a design which leverages an undercut cavity and moves the weld lines between the two pieces to the outer perimeter of the club (as opposed to on the face itself). It’s a forgiveness-boosting feature that makes for an effectively larger face without increasing the size of the clubhead."
      The forgiveness and the wider soles is where the clubs really shine and help make thin misses playable and not penalize the player as bad as some other irons would.
      I have found the spin in the short to mid irons to be sufficient enough to hold greens, and not send the ball rolling off once they land, and the wedges paired with a good quality ball makes it easy to zip the ball back something I haven't been able to do in a long time.
      Where the progressive design helps me most is in the 5 iron, with the extra offset, I can launch the ball easier than my old 5 iron and not worry about it going anywhere but straight. 
      I have gained 10-12 yards of carry over my old Mizuno's. This could be impart to being slightly stronger lofted clubs as well, but I feel it has more to do with newer technology and a faster face. PXG also claims these have "the thinnest face in golf" and I haven't seen any other company argue this.

       
      Upgrades 5 out of 10
      I give the upgrades a 5 because they don't offer many shaft options comparatively to competitors (they have the same number of brands but the shaft models are more limited than other brands), and the upgrade price on shafts is on par with other manufacturers. I do feel the shaft offerings fit a large variety of golfers, and my fitter had me dialed into my shaft within about 20 minutes, then went through every club to ensure that it would suit me through every iron.
      The biggest drop in score here is there are no additional grips that can be upgraded to. The only option is the Lamkin Z5 which I gave a try, and hated after 1 round due to not being tacky and soft enough but this is purely subjective on how you like your grips. I quickly replaced them with my preferred Winn Dri-Tacs. 
      Quite shocking since PXG is known to be all custom built, the 0211s have what amounts to a true stock shaft offering for the first time. True Temper’s new Elevate is the steel offering. The standard Elevate is a 95g offering (available in R and S flex), and the Elevate Tour 115g (available in S and X flexes). I was fitted with the Elevate Tour through all my irons.
      Both Elevate shafts feature VSS (Vibration Suppression System) technology. A fresh take on the Sensicore principle, VSS reduces unwanted vibrations by 71% in the standard Elevate, while VSS PRO reduces unwanted vibrations by 56% in the Elevate Tour.
      The graphite offering is the just-released MMT from Mitsubishi.
      Fitters and buyers will still have access to PXG’s full shaft matrix, but there is a per club upcharge of $25 (both steel and graphite) to move out of the stock offerings.

      Stock Grips

       
      Miscellaneous 10 out of 10
      First and foremost the customer service is OUTSTANDING, they keep you informed through the whole process all you have to do is call and ask. You can call 844-PLAY-PXG and they will set you up with a fitter at no expense to you. They sent my fitter from 2 hours away and spent 3 hours with me. There was absolutely no pressure from his end either for me to make a purchase. 
      They have a 30 day playability guarantee and a 1 year manufacturer's warranty on defects.
      Also, the boxes these come in are the nicest, sturdiest, best looking boxes I have ever seen golf clubs come in.
      Sorry the photo isn't the best, I was excited to get the boxes open and check the clubs out so I just snapped a quick photo.

       
      Price 7/10 out of 10
      My reasoning for the 7/10 out of 10 is if you're an Active duty member, Veteran, or First Responder and can be verified through ID.ME on their website the price is 10/10, you can snag these for the same price if not less than any other major brand out there. I paid $105 an iron for mine, but they have raised the price to $125 an iron for steel or graphite. Also, if you buy six of them you receive a free Gen 1 driver of your choice, and are offered a Gen 1 putter of your choice for $95, which I took advantage of both offerings opting for the 0811XF and Mustang putter. 
      If you do not fall into these categories they will run you $195 an iron for steel offering, and $210 for graphite and this is the reasoning for a 7/10.
      Shipping costs $30 for a single iron, $60 for irons and woods , and $100 for a whole set. Also, it is a direct signature required VIA FedEx this guarantees they hit your hands and not stolen off your porch. If you're lucky enough to live in the area, you can also pick them up from their headquarters for free.
      Specs 

       
      Conclusion and Overall 10 out of 10
      I give the clubs a 10 out of 10 overall because they are absolutely one of the best clubs I have ever gamed, demoed, swung. Now I know this is very subjective as well, and what works for me won't work for the masses. I would not think twice if asked if I recommend these clubs, because I would a million times over. PXG’s goal with the 0211 irons was to bring the performance and feel of their 0311 irons to golfers at a lower price.  They blew this goal out of the water.
      The progressive set is designed extremely well to fit the vast majority of golfers, although it doesn't offer the flexibility of the different 0311 models. If price has been scaring you away from PXG irons, call and get fitted because these are budget friendly comparative to their other models, and even more so for military, veterans and first responders.
       
      Please let me know what you think of my first review, and it's okay to be brutally critical I can handle it I'm a big boy.
      Thanks for reading,
      Matt

      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?

      PRESS Release From TaylorMade 
      TAKING SPEED TO THE LIMIT, TAYLORMADE GOLF COMPANY BREAKS BOUNDARIES WITH THE UNVEILING OF M5 & M6 METALWOODS
      Pushing Engineering Boundaries Like Never Before, Speed Injected Twist Face Takes Performance to Unsurpassed Levels with the Next Generation of M Technology
        CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 3, 2019) – TaylorMade Golf, the industry leader in product innovation, technology and performance and makers of the #1 Driver in Golf™ for seventeen consecutive years, announced today the next generation of the globally successful line of its M metalwoods, highlighted by the all-new M5 & M6 drivers, fairways and hybrids.
        Speed Injected Twist Face – a new Twist on Twist Face™
      In 2018, TaylorMade engineers developed a new path to performance with Twist Face technology. To counteract the high-toe miss (a hook), the driver face was modified open (loft increased & face opened) on the high-toe to help straighten ball flight. Similarly, to counteract the low-heel miss (a slice) the driver face was modified closed to de-loft and close the face in the low heel area. In 2019, TaylorMade has taken Twist Face to the next level of performance with the introduction of Injected Twist Face technology, exposing the false narrative that speed limits have been reached in a metalwood. There are four key features to the design of Speed Injected Twist Face that allow TaylorMade to maximize ballspeed, working in unison to allow every M5 & M6 driver to be precision-tuned with a new, rigorous process to maximize speed to the allowable limit.
        1. Ultra-thin Titanium face with redesigned Inverted Cone Technology (ICT)
      2. Reengineered, more-flexible Hammerhead 2.0 slot
      3. Internal support foam with variable amounts of injected resin
      4. A proprietary algorithm to tune each head
      Every M5 & M6 driver head is inspected, measured, and tuned for maximum speed and to ensure conformity; a process truly unmatched in the golf industry. Whereas current drivers have a level of variation from one to the next, TaylorMade’s new engineering and development processes effectively deliver a level of precision that ensures every golfer gets a hot & fast driver head.
        The drivers have been designed with a thinner, more flexible face, in fact, initially designed above the legal limit before going through the tuning process, a process in which resin is injected to ensure maximum speed for each head. The injection process utilizes two new tuning ports on the face of the driver (both M5 & M6 models) and a proprietary algorithm to ensure the appropriate amount of resin is used, systematically dialing in the speed for each driver face.
        A significant benefit of the thinner, faster face design is that it provides the M5 and M6 drivers with faster off-center COR, effectively increasing forgiveness. The new face design is optimized with up to a 20% reduction in thickness that results in a 66% larger sweetspot in the M5 drivers over the M3 and more than 100% larger than the original M1 in 2015.
      M5 & M5 Tour Drivers
      Highlighting TaylorMade’s next generation of M metalwood performance are the M5 & M5 Tour drivers, designed from the sole up to be the highest-performing drivers in company history. In addition to Twist Face and Speed Injected technologies, TaylorMade has also incorporated numerous additional technologies to take performance levels to unprecedented levels. Aesthetically, a new vibrant blood orange color and two-tone composite sole make for a visually stunning product that draws immediate attention and has drawn rave reviews from our Tour staff.
        Inverted T-Track
      TaylorMade first shifted the paradigm of adjustability with the introduction of the original TTrack in the M1 driver. In subsequent models in 2017 & 2018, the sliding weight system evolved into the Y-Track, which allowed for more than 1,000 unique CG configurations, which more than doubled the number attainable in the 2017 M1.
        In the M5 & M5 Tour drivers, a new Inverted T-Track makes personalization more intuitive and simplified than ever and allows the golfer more precise CG adjustability with 1770 unique CG configurations; made possible through the allowance of 20 grams (two 10g weights) of movable weight to be utilized for both the benefit of heel to toe control as well as front to back CG adjustment.
      Though there are 1770 unique settings, the adjustability process has been made incredibly intuitive with high/low & draw/fade settings. The front-to-back CG shift allows the golfer to fine-tune their ball flight through launch angle and backspin. The flat curvature of the front/back track provides the lowest CG possible regardless which weight setting fits the golfer best; this promotes high launch and low spin in any of the M5’s weight configurations.
        It also provides a wide range of MOI options—position both weights all the way forward for the lowest CG projection to maximize speed with very low spin, push the weights all the way back into both sections of the Inverted T-Track and maximize MOI and ballspeed protection on mishits. The result gives the golfer up to one degree of launch angle and 600rpm of spin change as well as 25 yards of left-to-right adjustability. For even further personalization, the 2° loft sleeve allows for the adjustment of the loft, lie angle and face angle of the driver; and when combined with the Inverted T-Track, makes the M5 the company’s most customizable driver in company history.
        Carbon Composite Crown & Sole
      TaylorMade’s composite technology has been in development for more than fifteen years. In the M5 & M6 drivers and fairways, TaylorMade ushers in the 4th consecutive generation of its carbon composite technology. TaylorMade engineers were able to incorporate composite panels that continue to unlock performance with a more efficient mass distribution compared to a traditional metalwood construction.
        The use of composite crown and sole panels save weight from the traditional construction of drivers and fairways. This increased discretionary weight is used to create an optimized center of gravity to deliver a hotter trajectory with increased forgiveness. The 2019 M5 & M6 have also increased the overall composite crown footprint by 10%
      M5 Tour Driver
      Following the success and increased demand for a sub-460 cc version over the last three years, the M5 will again be available in a smaller model – the M5 Tour. Featuring the same Speed Injected technology as the M5 driver, the M5 Tour driver utilizes a compact 435cc head with optimized aerodynamics for improved workability and maximum clubhead speed. While retaining all of the same key technologies as its larger 460cc counterpart, the M5 Tour driver is designed for the player who seeks more workability with less spin and prefers a more compact look at address.
        Specifications, Availability & Pricing
      Available for preorder on January 18 and at retail on February 1, 2019 at an MSRP of $549.99 USD, the M5 driver will be offered in 9°, 10.5° and 12° lofts. The M5 Tour driver will be available on March 1, 2019 also at an MSRP of $549.99 and is available in 9° and 10.5° lofts. Both the M5 & M5 Tour come equipped with a newly redesigned, streamlined headcover and premium components; either a Mitsubishi CK Tensei Orange 60 and Project X’s new HZRDUS Smoke 70 shaft with numerous additional shaft options available at no additional cost. The stock grip is the MCC Decade grip from Golf Pride.
      M6 & M6 D-Type Drivers — Injected for a New Level of Speed Complementing the M5 driver are the M6 and M6 D-Type drivers, which, like the M5, are injected to the maximum legal level of speed. Injected Twist Face delivers a hot, yet accurate performance package in the new M6 driver. When you add optimized CG and MOI through the use of a full carbon crown and sole, the result is a complete driver that delivers on all fronts. " — Brian Bazzel, Vice President, Product Creation Speed Injected Twist Face Like the M5, each M6 driver head is individually speed tested and injected with tuning resin to optimize COR across the entire face and deliver maximum ball speed and distance. The heel and toe ports in the driver face have allowed TaylorMade to maximize speed across the entire face in every driver created, delivering to each golfer a boundary-pushing fast & hot driver head.   The M6 also features Twist Face technology, which, like last year’s M3 & M4 drivers and this year’s M5 driver, provides more loft in the high toe and less loft in the low-heel to produce more consistent spin where golfers commonly mis-hit. The face of the M6 driver is also slightly taller (1mm) than the M5. Aerodynamic Carbon Sole Design with ‘Inertia Generator’ Featuring the same 6-layer carbon composite crown as the M5 driver, the 2019 M6 drivers adds a complete carbon fiber sole, allowing for significantly more discretionary weight to be used elsewhere in the clubhead – as much as 54% more than its predecessor, the M4. With the weight savings, engineers were able to create a sleek, aerodynamic shape inclusive of the new ‘inertia generator.’ The inertia generator houses the additional discretionary weight extremely low and back for maximum forgiveness while lowering the CG compared to previous models.   The M6 D-Type driver brings the same performance features found in the M6 driver into a draw-biased, easy-to-launch package. TaylorMade engineers have utilized a combination of technologies to create a significant amount of draw bias to help golfers prevent a right miss. The key feature is the optical engineering that creates a high-contrast topline masking configured to make the face angle appear more open than the actual face angle, resulting in the golfer returning a more closed face at impact. In addition, the center of gravity is moved slightly toward the heel to further aid in delivering a square clubface to the golf ball. The combination of these features provides the M6 D-Type driver up to 20 yards more draw bias than the standard M6 driver.   Specifications, Pricing & Availability Available for preorder on January 18 and at retail on February 1, 2019 at an MSRP of $499.99 USD, the M6 and M6 D-Type drivers will be offered in 9°, 10.5° and 12° (RH only) lofts. The M6 driver has two stock shaft options from Fujikura, the high launching Atmos Orange 5 and a lower-launching Atmos Black 6 in S-, R- and A-flexes. The M6 D-Type comes equipped with a Project X EvenFlow Max Carry 45 shaft in 6.0 (S), 5.5 (R) and 5.0 (A). For women, the M6 and M6 D-Type drivers will be offered in 10.5° and 12° lofts (RH only) and come equipped with TaylorMade’s Tuned Performance 45g L flex shaft. The stock men’s grip is the Lamkin Dual Feel grip and the stock ladies grip is the Lamkin Comfort Plus Dual Feel grip. Both drivers are available with numerous additional shaft options at no additional cost.
