Thanks for reading,

Matt

First off, WELCOME ABOARD!  Glad to have you on the forum and thanks for your service to our country.  As a former Marine I salute you and the sacrifices you made.

Happy to hear that you found something to help and golf was there for you when you needed it most.

Super job on your first review... love reading about the 0211 irons as these were something that really piqued my interest when they offered the cut rate deal at 105 plus a free driver.  From what I can tell it really sounds like these are something you'll stick with for quite some time and they give you what you need and want on the course.

A couple of quick questions-

How does the finish hold up?  It looks to be a satin rather than chrome finish.
How is the dispersion?  The chart shows a 40-50 percent increase over the 0311!!

Again - great job on the review and WELCOME !!  We're happy to have you.

I've only played 3 rounds with them as well as about 10 practice sessions. I clean my clubs after every round and every practice session (I took the PW photos shortly after getting home from a practice session and hadn't cleaned them yet), and I haven't seen a single glint of issues with the finish. They are more of a satin finish which I like, I have not had any sun glare issues off of them which I love. I get way too distracted by glare especially during contact.

I believe the dispersion comes into play due to the forgiveness of the club. I can not speak of the claims of PXG when comparing the 0211 to 0311's. I will gladly reach out to them and ask them how they came up with this data.

I can tell you that my dispersion of my 7 iron from my Mizuno's which were fitted with KBS Tour shafts averaged 30 yards of dispersion from my two farthest balls from each other off 20 shots with severe miss-hits removed of course, and with the new 0211's fitted with the True Temper's reduced it down to 11 yards on average and had no sever miss-hits off 20 shots. This also goes for all of my clubs dispersion being reduced. I am no longer hitting pushes/hard fades. When I step up I have confidence that the ball is going to go where I'm aiming, and I can work it left or right as needed (as much as I can during my rebuilding phase). This could be to the 0211's being that much more forgiving, having a larger sweet spot, and also being fitted for new shafts which I haven't had done in 6 years.

Nice review Matt!  They sure are purdy! From one Air Force veteran to another, thanks for your service and glad you're getting past the collateral baggage!

Thank you. Not to get off topic but the thing that helped the most was falling in love with my wife. When I realized I loved her, I no longer had night terrors, no longer needed medicine to stop the night terrors or to sleep at night, I no longer needed doctors, anxiety meds nothing. It's like I was cured of all my troubles over night. It was that empty hole in my head and heart that needed to be filled. We've now been together for over 12 years and married for 11 this past July. Cheers to no more dark times like that ever again.

I forgot to ask how you like those Elevate VSS shafts?  Do you notice a significant difference (perhaps too soon to tell)?  I've seen some ad's recently for these and been interested in hearing some first hand reviews.

... OK Mat, here ya go. You have 2 daughters and "amazing gorgeous wife who is way too hot for me" so you know what sex is. Boxes are most assuredly not sexy. "SEXY AF?" Golf clubs are also not sexy. I have always thought describing something as "sexy" is the domain of Millennials that haven't had sex. Because if they had, they would not think a cardboard box is sexy. 🤪  "They are absolutely gorgeous at address." NOW we're talking! 

... That said, the review itself is 
excellent. Great read and very well done. Awesome photo's including the Disney pics! Plus you love Chicago's sports teams so how could I find any fault with any of it?

So you, like me, would describe the shipping boxes as "skookum" 😉.

I love them. I do play the S flex, and I get enough feed back on mishits to know it was a mishit. Between the vibration reduction in the shaft, the smoothness of the irons, and the softness of my grips I get just the perfect amount of feedback from them. They are a very smooth shaft through the loading and unloading process. I swing with a fast tempo and feel the load and unload on every swing.

AF As F**k. I don't consider myself a millennial, and I'm sorry for my usage of sexy. Gorgeous, tantalizing, shapely, luscious, desirable, beautiful, inviting, alluring. Take your pick and fill in the blanks where needed. JK LOL

I’ve looped for enough PXG to throw in my $0.02..., I’m impressed, and that is not easily done, I’m on the fence about at what point they are worth the price, but if price isn’t a consideration I would highly recommend getting to a green grass demo day. Especially if you’re in the demographic of “not willing to concede I can’t get a little bit faster just yet...”
