It’s not the best packaging in the game, but it was HALF PRICE, and I’m ripping it!

Product looks well built. I do have to agree the packaging wasn’t very impressive

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.   

I got fit/ordered on 5/30 so a little over a week after you. Mine was scheduled to be built last friday 6/19 and it came and passed with no change in status. This morning it was still showing 6/19 as my estimated date to begin assembly and this afternoon it went blank. Based on your post, I'm hoping that when I log in again tomorrow it will show as built. 

Maybe they are starting to catch up on orders. I was originally told 4-5 weeks so if it ships this week it would arrive right in that window.

Mine went blank 3-4 days before it shipped! Hope yours is deivered soon. I NEVER would’ve considered PXG before the sale. This thing is rock solid, it’s changed my perception of the brand entirely.

Their computer system must update once a day sometime in early afternoon. It was still blank in the morning and then yesterday afternoon it switched over to "in assembly". Hopefully it ends up in final inspection & shipped today.

 

Same here regarding PXG. After hearing their ads a dozen times a day on ESPN radio I finally checked out their website and took one look at the price and said no way will I ever buy any of those clubs. It was this thread that got my attention and had me take a second look at the driver.  Even with the sale though, I would still probably never buy their irons. $340 per club is a lot better than $425 but it's still way outside my budget. The Gen 2 ones are more reasonably priced but not sure I like the idea of buying 4 yr old clubs at a super premium price. I wish there was a way to hit the XF irons back to back against the G710 without going to a club champion.

Have to say that I'm a bit annoyed now that my driver was "inspected" Wednesday afternoon and supposedly "shipped" Thursday but here on Friday night they still haven't actually given the package to FedEx, just created a shipping label.

Well, after a bit of dealing with Fed ex stupidity... It arrived in the crappy cardboard box, with a hole punched in it and bent at a 20 degree angle.  basically, the shaft stopped it from bending more. The club itself seems fine, no marks or scratches.  Played great also.  Just concerned long term as who knows what caused the smashed box.  Talked to PXG and told them the shipping was a joke.  Got a lot of “Sorry about that” and “we didn’t want to delay any longer”.  No offer to refund $30 for shipping or anything like that.  Love the club, but as a first time PXG buyer, what a terrible end to the process that really makes me question the possibility of being a repeat customer.

Picked up my driver yesterday at the store. Came in the fancy PXG box it did get jabbed with something as one side had a  gouge in it. Must have gone through the outer box and into the fancy one. Regardless, I received the club in perfect condition and can't wait to get to the range tomorrow to hit it.

Interesting that yours came in the nicer packaging while others have gotten the standard packaging most lower priced OEMs send product in. Maybe cause it was ordered through one of their accounts?

Now that looks impressive... I am wondering if the Gen 2 are in the standard boxes and the Protos are getting the full meal deal?

Yeah. I tried to make sure to preserve the box when opening I'm case I ever decide to part with it.  But I'm sure that would add a another $20 to $30 I'm shipping cost.  

Guy at UPS store told me the other day UPS has singled out driver size boxes for an increase due to their popularity.  Ha

Don’t be surprised if ups doesn’t charge extra because they won’t consider that shippable box. Know someone that sold and shipped theirs in that box and cost them extra.

This deal is still going, extended through the end of July. Anyone else just want it to end!?

 

I recently had a fitting and being a leftie, they didn't have the gen 2 X, which I was really hoping to hit as it looks like a solid option for guys with negative angle of attacks. I keep looking at the PXG website and hoping the deal goes away soon so i don't have to keep thinking about it!

I believe they drop the heroes price for today to $395 for the Proto driver. From everything I'm seeing so far with the Proto X, that is a steal.

UPDATE on the 0811XF Gen 2 Driver:

1. This spins way way less than I would have thought for a max forgiveness design.

2. Ball speed all over the face are really consistent.

3. I should have taken the extra step and made the 2 hour drive to get fit. I ended throwing a PXG tip on my old gamer shaft (Fuji speeder), I was not clicking with the HZRDUS yellow smoke.

4. It sounds AWESOME, the sound and feel off the face on all but the worst hits is amazing.

I got the cheap packaging, but I’m super happy with the purchase.

Is that strictly Hero Pricing or the online price for everyone?

I think it was just for veterans and just a 1 day deal on the 4th. The website is showing $495 for the Proto’s.

I ordered a Gen 2 and got the fancy box. My guess is that they ran out of fancy boxes temporarily and are probably back to shipping clubs in them until they run out again.

So it look like they have dropped the protos right down to 395 instead of 495... maybe too good of a deal to pass up
