Took a month for mine. It was a bummer to have to wait so long, but it's the first club I've had fit to me so the wait was worth it.

I must hold off getting the proto driver

I thought the same thing but decided to give the Gen2 a try to curb my desire for the Proto. The Gen2 is so good that the desire is almost gone completely.

I ordered the Proto X on 5/06 it shipped out 5/26 and arrived 6/1.   

I haven't been to the course in 2 weeks.  So I can't speak to the packaging, let alone and performance.  

But I was pleased with the delivery time from order.

Had a PXG fitting today, drove 4 hours one way for it.  I got  my Gen 2 last sat.  Probably hit 100 balls with it last week and wasn't happy with it so went for a fitting.  Told them money was no object, I'm 59 years old and want to keep up with my boys.  I didn't care what name the shaft was or what it cost , I want to hit it farther. after an hour, best was 236 with 91 swing speed.  At this point I'm pooped but i brought my 410+ cause i wanted to see what it would do on a Trackman.  First shot with the Ping, stock shaft, 235.  2nd, 228.  At this point my back is done.  They took my club for re shafting, which i don't get.  Why couldn't they have just kept the shaft and sent me a new one?  Anyway new shaft is Riptide 50 gram 5.5.  Old one was same shaft but the 60 gram and it was too stiff for me. I don't know how many different shafts I hit today, one was a $200 upcharge  and i had higher swing speed with it but not the yards.  The day did impress me regarding Ping quality. Throwing it out there for recommendations for the  best shaft for an old man with a bad back and still wants to hit it 250! Thanks

I say it all the time - stock Ping shafts can hang with anything in the “free upgrade” section of the fitting carts for other brands, including PXG!

IMG_2171.PNG.ad45ef8eb88af1f7ee896b7a7d2ecaad.PNG

 

 

 

I had the estimated build date on mine change three times. I ordered on 4/25, (Driver, wood, hybrid and 0311Xf irons), my first estimated build date was 5/15/2020 and then after that passed it changed to 5/25 and then it was just blank for about 10 days.  It just updated last Friday to picked/in assembly but am doubtful that they're actually assembling anything as it conveniently happened after I reached out to my fitter for an update since the previous 3 people at PXG customer service who promised me a detailed update ghosted me.. 4 days later I still haven't heard back from my fitter on the promised update either.

 

Its one thing if it's delayed and you're able to provide the reason for it i.e. the specific heads I ordered aren't in til blank date and then they'll get built on this date etc. but the big issue I'm having is that after about 4 separate attempts to get an order update after my  $2000+ order has been delayed to 7 weeks,  I've gotten nothing but the generic COVID response they copy and paste on social media and then ZERO follow up on specifics after.

 

You have to wonder at what point extending the PXG deal was solely greed to capitalize on sales, when they clearly can't keep up with the production and more importantly is killing their previous image of "ultimate" customer service.

 

I'm hoping they pick it up and this all ends up being worth it. I've been tempted to cancel but keep waiting thinking that it's right around the corner.. here I am 7 weeks later still waiting 😅

That’s crazy! Based on my order date relative to yours I may be in the 2 month club as well. It’s not a great experience, but I wonder how much of this was driven by survival. With all their brick and mortar fitters not able to operate, they were probably staring down the barrel of a very very bad couple of months?

I can’t wait for this thing to get delivered, the anticipation is killing me!

I think it was a brilliant piece of marketing. While all the other big brands were basically closed down due to their factories being shut down PXG was able to offer new clubs at a price that beat the competition. Plus with their high price point originally it makes us all feel like we are getting a massive deal. Obviously with how backed up they seem to be they must have had an insane number of orders. Probably going to have an extremely strong financial quarter.

I think the marketing has certainly worked on one person 😉

The flip side 'could be' sell cheaper clubs as we need to shift stock to make room for new models. Backed up due to covid working restrictions so less staff and certainly supply chain affected. Time will tell about their financial quarter but most companies dont cut prices when product is in demand. I give you Apple as an example.

Just another perspective.

To me, it’s more about protecting their cash position in a time when their brick and mortar supply chain is shut down. They’ve been a custom fit only brand in the past, and with custom fitters shut down by law, they were most likely trying to get ahead of the bleeding.

 

Being able to move old inventory may be part of it. Being able to show lost/forfeit revenue for loan forgiveness may be part of it. Testing the waters for a lower price point may be part of it - IDK I’m not an expert.

 

What I will say is I need a max moi, max back/low CG driver head to neutralize my “overdraw.” With the sale, the PXG was somehow cheaper than the 2018 Ping G400 Max (still sold as new) and the Cobra SZ Xtreme Tour, which are the only other 2 heads I’ve ever seen measured that are in that conversation. Can’t wait for this thing to get here, it’s been 4 weeks...

I was a little concerned about my order based on what others have seen.  Then on the day it was supposed to begin assembly everything went blank on the tracker, no dates and nothing highlighted.  I gave it the weekend, glad I did, as I checked Monday morning and it was in build then shipped today.  Hope it was shipped in good packaging.  As cool as the box is I’ve seen before, I just want it properly protected in transit.  If it arrives by the current estimate it will be in the 4-5 week window I was told when fit.

Just ordered my PXG 0811XF Gen 2 driver today. It was hard to find an available time for an on site fitting so I tried their phone fitting service and feel pretty good about the result. The phone fitting matches very close to the TruFit online fitting I took late last year. The discount must really be boosting sales as it looks like it could be 4-6 weeks before I get the new club. More to follow after I spend a little time with the club.

Received my new PXG 0811XF Gen 2 driver Tuesday just under 5 weeks but as promised between 4-6weeks. Used it for the first time yesterday and I have to say the fitting I had over the phone was spot on. The driver is a big improvement over my old Calloway XR, now I just have to get my swing under better control having developed some bad habits with the old driver. Thanks PXG for the great deal!
