PXG Gen 5 Irons Conforming List!

Recommended Posts

It’s funny how 1 post here or there can tell you everything you need to know about someone without even meeting them lol. 
 

Anyways, I think the Gen5 Chrome looks amazing and the Black Label Elite even more so. I got a set of Gen3 T’s as heads only and purchased my shafts after the fact (all second hand) but I couldn’t be happier. I played the Gen2’s and these feel so much better to me. My gen3’s should wear out(or more likely my love for them will) right around the time the Gen5’s drop to that $125-150 an iron sweet spot lol

Then why even bring up used cars at all;  you simply wouldn't be happy with a prior year even if it was new.    Either way you are free to spend your money on whatever you want; I really don't care. 

That’s literally what i said

I said that I can’t buy clubs that I know are old. Not the same thing. I buy new irons about every 3-4 years, and when I do, I want the latest model.

I've not had a chance to test any PXG irons.  Now that I think about it, I don't even recall if any were amongst the plethora of shiny metal candy in the numerous cabinet drawers during my TrueSpec fitting.  In fairness, they were not on my short list of make/models I wanted to test - and that was largely based on cost.  But, I've actually been surprised to see just how competitive their products are.  This is especially true with Bob's love for "slashing prices" on prior gen models and military discounts.  

Personally, the recessed Torx screws, which is PXG's trademark, have never done it for me. But if I get the chance to test some, and they run circles around the contenders, I could see my way clear to playing them 🙂.

What are you even talking about??? It’s not even relevant to my comments. You just thought you dunked on somebody. I said I only want the latest gen of any equipment I buy, and here you go being loud and wrong. Beat it bum! 

In a golf forum that is generally the most considerate and polite of all, this post stands out, and not in a good way.  We can disagree with one another, and still act like adults.

... I only hit a 7 iron 0311 Gen3 P twice on the course and the feel and flight were really nice. Didn't run circles around competitors but can certainly hang with any of them. At $900 for a set of pw-4 with $60 upgrade MMT shafts at no additional costs they went from too expensive to an insane bargain. I went in to potentially order a set of them but the visual offset was much too excessive for my tastes. Turned out to be a good thing as I really like the Cobra '22 Forged Tecs and will hopefully have a set in April and already haver a set of Steelfiber i80's to install in them.

Oh God,he was the one who tried to come at me! But I call him a bum and everybody wants to get all sensitive?!?


I think it’s real interesting that people are coming after me and insulting me and nobody says 💩, but if I respond, I’m the bad guy. Lemme change my avi to a white man, real quick. 🙄

This thread wouldn’t have gotten derailed if so many people weren’t trying to “well actually” me to the point of not even reading what I wrote and putting words in my mouth. 
Now, I hope all of you block me.

Well this all escalated quickly. 

Back to the topic at hand. Definitely right at the line here so although no blocking (not something we typically do), this will be a call out to this thread to keep it on track and keep it there. 

Lets not go down this road and have to shut down the thread, so to all be civil and continue on with the Gen5 discussion.

Gotta say I don't think anything you said was any more inflammatory than a few of the responses to you. It would be nice if everyone would stay calm, but I do think you had the right to be somewhat offended at some of those responses.

When do Gen 5 release anyone know? I’m on fence with these or srixon zx 5 & 7 and need to decide.   Thanks. 👍🏻

Next month. If PXG sticks to their normal pricing structure these are going to be significantly mode expensive than the srixons. The gen4 will probably drop some in price

Thanks.  My #'s with Gen 4 were so good I hate to say against Srixon (and all others) that I think I'll stick with them for now and let Gen 5 run its course and hopefully come down in price when time is right.   With gas being $6 gallon now I don't need the extra expense.   Thank you!

Staying with Gen 4 for now, let the dust settle with this release.  Not spending that kind of money PXG will list them at first.   I like the look though and curious about the tech going into them.  More in the details to follow I'm sure coming.

Order the Gen 4's at a fraction of the price. 

 

Gen 5 doesn't look to be vastly different...and to be honest, not sure there's a vast difference between Gen 1 for that matter!  They are all beautiful irons!

There are vast differences between PXG club releases. The difference between Gen 3 and Gen 4 was nothing short of profound. Gen 4 we’re simply better in every way. Rumor has it that the difference beteeen Gen 4 and 5 is at least as big as between Gen 4 and 5.

Too many typos from my phone. Last sentence was to say Gen 4 to 5 is supposed to be as great of a leap as 3 to 4 was.

Hit the Gen Five 311Ps today.The major difference between the 4 and 5s is the placement of tungsten weights on the toe and heel of the iron the effect of which is to increase the peripheral weight and lower the center of gravity on the club. They are absolutely beautiful and perhaps a tad more forgiving than the 4s.

I was able to hit the new Gen 5 at the PXG store in Mesa AZ. The look and feel are phenomenal, very solid club. They are going to be expensive for the first year or so - 5K for a full set.... so I am told by one of their fitters...

Good gracious! There is zero chance that buying a set for $5k would be better for one’s game than a set for $1,500. Crazy. Again, if one has the money and wants the golf relative “Gucci bag”, do it!!!

As always the 0311 line is their premium line and their prices for new releases are the typical high end price associated with PXG. $5k is for a full bag of clubs including the bag.

All good. Full set of irons for new release will vary depending on number of irons and if stock shaft and grips. Full set of 8 irons with stock setup will probably be  $3k if they hold to the $375/iron price the gen4 were released at.

The full bag option saves some money over buying it separately over the course of the year or two years

Yeah, the last couple years they have been offering full bag setup/pricing that is "discounted" from buying them piece by piece.  Still pretty pricey for the new releases, but the Gen3 is a great deal on a full bag now, and Gen 4 probablyh is as well, but I haven't looked it up recently.
