PXG 0211 Irons Inbound


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I've been seriously considering these irons now that the price point is $89 per club. It seems this discount is set to end on 9/30 so I'm trying to gather info super quickly.

My current set is a nearly 10-year old set of Ping clones (I was young and stupid, sorry) and I've found that they tend to be very accurate and forgiving but I'm hitting ~20 yards shorter than my friends with similar playing ability.

The fitter is open now near Seattle, does anyone have insight into how that process works? Compared to something like Mizuno JPX 9XX Hot Metal or Sub 70 irons how do they fare? Is there anything else I should be considering along with the PXG 0211? Are they a good choice for a mid-handicapper?

Any insight on the above greatly appreciated!

I don't mean to come off snarky, but lets be honest. If you've been playing a set of Ping clones for 10 years, you're not really too interested in your equipment, and you're not going to order a new set of PXG's, no matter how cheap they are right now.

You probably just enjoy getting out there a few times a year and playing the game with your friends and having a few beers.. There's nothing wrong with that, as I'd guess those of us who are more into the "techy" side of things rarely get any major benefits from changing equipment. For the most part, our scores don't change nearly as much as our equipment does. We are just more into "the quest" than you are, lol. 

To answer your question though, I'll ask you a few questions. Do you think playing the clubs you're playing helps you play your best golf? Do you really care? Do you really need to be educated on how to get fit for a set of irons? Haven't you seen and read enough about fittings and these irons both here and elsewhere to help you decide whether they'd be right for you? Or are you going to rely on the opinion of someone whom you don't know, and who knows nothing about your game to convince you to switch out of those 10 year old Ping knockoffs?

Like I alluded to earlier, I think you already know the answer.

I bought them at a fitting and picked them up on Monday, but thanks for making a lot of baseless assumptions about me.

So what did you try, how did they compare for a mid handicap, and what did you end up with? I am not sure about the 0211 since they seem to have limited adjustability unlike other pxg irons. Low hook clubs for me and Shafts don’t seem to help. The head weights make it seem like it would be easier to fine tune.

I wound up really liking them during the fitting. We focused on fixing the poor fit of my old clubs, and wound up actually standard/standard. I also like this for future re-sale if my interest in golf continues strong and I look to replace in the next couple of years. From what I've seen locally PXG clubs get snatched up quick when someone puts them on OfferUp or similar.

We tried just about every shaft combination and dialed in a stiff shaft with some weight to it. Wound up with the Elevate Tour S300 shafts at just under 120 grams and they felt great. What I was really looking for was forgiveness and distance, and these gave me both. I hit my 7-iron a good 25+ yards further in carry and dispersion improved as well. They just felt right when I had that head & shaft combination.

I'm sure more fine-tuning would be great for someone who's more consistent, but if you're just looking to dial in length / lie angle / shaft their fitting would likely help you do it. One thing they said to me in the fitting, and this resonated with me, is if you're trying to correct a swing flaw by dialing in custom clubs you'd be better suited to spend the money on lessons.

My next step will be to take them to a range for a gapping session and hit them all, they're still brand new in the box in my trunk. PXG Seattle also offered to let me come in and do it in their fitting bay with the launch monitor, which I thought was a pretty great option. I'd be happy to follow up more after I've hit them all.

Sorry you took it personally. My post was meant to make fun of guys like me, who are always "looking for better" than it was to make any baseless assumption about you. Looking back I could have worded it better, but ... enjoy your new irons.

 

That said, pics or it didn't happen🤪🤪🤪!!!!

Sounds like you got a great setup. Any reason you didn’t go to the local PXG store to do the fitting?

My bad if I took it the wrong way, re-reading my response it doesn't look very good either. I've wanted to get back into golf for a long time and finally feel able to, for a host of different reasons.

Sorry if I wasn't clear - the fitting was at PXG Seattle.

I feel like I owe you answers to these now 🙂

Do I think the clubs I was playing helps me play my best golf? No.

Do I really care? YES. I haven't been able to afford much besides knockoffs and hand me downs or used equipment. These irons are only my second really nice addition to the bag after my putter, which has been a HUGE improvement.

Do I need to be educated on how to get fit for a set of irons? Yes, kind of. This fitting with PXG basically confirmed my previous fitting from a pro golf discount sucked. I'm still a little bit unsure if these are the best option for me since the fitting ONLY allowed for PXG irons, but I liked them enough to get them. In the future I think I'd consider something like Club Champion, where PXG is one option of many. I'll likely go there for a driver / woods fitting.

Haven't you seen and read enough about fittings and these irons both here and elsewhere to help you decide whether they'd be right for you? Not really - so much of the info about 0211s is 2+ years old, and they're not really compared to the newer irons very much. Part of the impetus for my original post was driven by how little time I'd spent on research up until that point and looking for quick answers.

Or are you going to rely on the opinion of someone whom you don't know, and who knows nothing about your game to convince you to switch out of those 10 year old Ping knockoffs? No convincing was needed, I know I need to make a change. What it came down to for me was finding something that was very high quality, fit my game, and if for some reason doesn't work out I can re-sell and try again. These clubs fit that bill.

I could have answered your original post very simply, by telling you how the 0211's are working for me, and why I chose them, but how would that have really helped you? What I was trying to tell you is that it would be foolish to rely on how I or others are doing with them. When I said "you already know the answers" you knew deep down I was right. Why would you suddenly spend $800 on irons that someone like me or anyone else here recommended to you? 

You were playing a set of 10 year old knockoff irons that you said were incorrectly fit for you, so it was fair to assume that

A. you didn't play a lot, or care much about your equipment, since anyone who did wouldn't have kept that set for 10 years.

B. Just about any iron you tried (assuming they weren't a players blade or MB) would've given you a big gain in distance and probably forgiveness.

C. The fact that as far as I know no one else responded to your original post after I did should've shown you I told you what you needed to hear.

In the end you went and did what you knew you should've done in the first place, which was go and get fitted for an iron you were interested in. You liked what you saw, and bought them. For what it's worth, I think you made an excellent choice. You now have a set of irons that can get you to wherever you want to go in this game. By that I mean they're forgiving enough that you can enjoy them now, and still game them as you get better, all the way to asingle digit handicap if you so desire, because they're that good.

Thanks for the honesty. If you are looking for a real good fitter and come down to portland, I got fitted at the Tour Van at pumpkin ridge and got to try many others alongside the 0211s. I think you will learn to love them. I've had them a few weeks as my very first new set of clubs and they perform well and tell you a lot about your swing.
