PXG Driver...Deal too good to pass up?

I agree about the Gen 2 driver. It is by far the best feeling and sounding driver I have hit. The distance and dispersion are exceptional as well. After 1 round with it the only driver I would replace it with would be the Proto and only if I got an amazing deal on it. I can’t believe I waited so long to try it. TrueGolfFit was right in the money for me with this as #1.

Crazy thing is I was kinda skeptical of PXG, and they weren't really on my radar. Then this sale started and here it's the only way to get a true custom fitting. So I warmed up the the idea and they have impressed me.

Was looking for a driver and even did a fitting at Club Champion.  Wasn't the best experience.  Although, I was fit almost 3 years ago at a different store and also was very unimpressed.  Saw PXG was offering the Gen2 for $295 and decided to look into it.  I was able to get a fitting last Thursday.  The fitting was well done, the comparison to the last two was night and day.  One of the big differences between the online fitting vs live is that he had many more shafts to review, and they were almost all no charge.  I was fit into an Adila NV Green NXT 65-S, 2nd place was the Tensei Orange ($125 upcharge).  As this is a low launch/low spin shaft he moved me to the 10.5 head of the 0811X Gen 2.  While my distance improvement was not drastic, 0-5 yards when I hit them both clean, where the big difference was in miss hits.  I was not hitting the ball well at the fitting so the dispersion was great for a deciding factor.  With the NV and the X head I had a one way miss, left, of about 10-15 yards with a distance loss of around 10 carry and 15 total (on 5 good hits averaged 258 carry 282 total).  My current driver (DVD 10.5 Adila Rouge 125 6.0) on good hits is about a 255 carry 275-280 total.  But, my miss is both ways 25 yds left or 10 yds right with 25 yards loss to carry and 30 to total.  Did I get the massive distance bump, nope.  Did I see a massive improvement on miss hits, yeah.  And since I don't play as much as I would like I might hit it on the screws every other drive at best the difference is more than enough to have a meaningful impact on my game.

If you struggle with too much spin the 0811X Gen 2 was great with the 3 tungsten plugs up front.  I dropped to 1800-2000 rpm for clean hits and 2600-2900 for miss hits.  My current sits 2600-2800 on clean hits and nearly 4000 on miss hits.

Agreed. The best presentation I have ever seen was my full set delivery.

I went to the Gen 2 XF that is lofted down and over 72 holes this weekend I missed 5 fairways. The rest of my game stinks right now but I am driving it more accurately than I have in my life.

Yeah I can't imagine the Proto being better. The X is incredibly low spin. I have a 10.5* head and went up in loft to the little + and it is still spinning less than any of my previous drivers. The only one that was close was the Epic Flash Sub Zero. I can't judge it by my last 2.5 rounds as something happened Saturday night when we went back out for a quick 9. I completely lost my swing for every club but Saturday morning it was a dream.

I am sure most have you already have , but check out one of the more recent txg videos.     Pxg Proto vs gen2.  It has me intrigued.   I really liked the gen2.   Maybe this Proto/gen3 is even better.  Best part is the Proto driver is on sale right now too

Have a fitting booked for Saturday to hit the xf. Assuming everything goes well I plan to order one, but I do have to say that $30 shipping is kind of disappointing.  Still going to be a good deal but every other golf company offers free shipping so $30/item is steep, especially since UPS is like $8 at their volume.
