PXG Gen3 GC hype

Recommended Posts

Went to Haggin Oaks range to test out some irons. Tried the PXG irons and wow was I not surprised. I had seen the golf spy tests and now today GC was hyping the distance.  I wondered where this distance was coming from in GS tests.  In checking i.e. 5 iron specs, the PXGs had 2* less loft and longer shaft.  Duh, this is the oldest hype in club sales to make your irons go farther ala infamous Gary Player irons in the 80s.  What golf spy should do is set lofts and shaft lengths the same on irons tested then that would be a true test.  Ole Bob Parsons is now up to $650 for a iron when there are so many other manufacturers bring excellent products to golfers at reasonable prices.  If his clubs are so great then why aren't the pros flocking to them and the ones who are have made no significant impact on any tour.   Remember the old adage, a fool and his $$$$$ is soon parted.

I know it has been beat to death, but now the Bob Parsons hype is being spread by the Golf Channel so hopefully this info will make some golfers that buyer beware.

Well the golf channel is paid by a company to advertise. Stay tuned you will see Callaway, TaylorMade and other brands on there advertise as well.

You could literally pull any brand and find a club line that has stronger lofts and longer shafts than another company’s line or even an older release of the same company’s irons.

As for the hype around PXG there’s hype around every brand and distance because distance sells. But as for actual numbers that’s for the individual to determine if something is better for them whether that’s looks, distance, feel or sound. PXG has two of the best engineers in the industry designing their clubs and unlike any other brand they don’t have a budget to design too.

With all that said how about you add some context to your OP and state what irons GC was hitting from PXG and against what irons they are being compared to.

As for the testing you are saying MGS should do you might want to look at the most wanted testing to see that irons in similar categories thus similar specs get tested against each other by everyday amateurs
