Did PXG raise the price of its Gen 5 driver?


Recommended Posts

PXG currently lists its Gen 5 drivers for $599. Am I going crazy or was the previous non-sale, regular price $499? They can do what they want, but I have just never seen a golf club company do that before.

In my experience, that’s probably the truest statement in golf. If you don’t like their prices, just check tomorrow.

I think they ran a special on ton of their clubs for October or on release for a certain period of time. It was just that special deal for the time being and now it has gone to what its normal price is. I could be wrong, however that is what I recall.

They ran some pretty ridiculous promotions last month ($87 for a fairway wood), which is refreshing considering the no discount/promotion policies a lot of the major OEMs have. For some reason $499 was stuck in my head for the original price of the driver, before the sales. I was just curious if they were taking things in an unexpected direction. They seem to do things their own way.

I picked up a used Gen 5 0311 XF 9° driver that looked brand new off of PXG_Express on Ebay for $239 + tax and free shipping.

If you are active duty military, retired military, L/E or First responder then you can sign up for the PXG Hero’s program and get huge savings on their clubs and other items. That is how I got my clubs through them after a fitting.

It’s $299 per their site right now. Who cares what the regular price is, they haven’t charged that since release.

I'm really finding them to be the Rock Bottom Golf of OEM's. They require a daily check and you will stumble on their best deal when you least expect it.

The advantage of being a dtc brand is they control everything and based on what the market is currently doing they can do sales to move inventory or cause other brands to change their pricing

It was just an observation. The major OEMs control their prices as well. They just don’t randomly raise the price on their current models. Price increases come with new models and whatever their marketing team decides is the technological breakthrough that unlocks more distance.

Apparently you missed Ping raising prices on a current release due to the higher costs of shipping and manufacturing.

There was another brand that did it too.

People keep forgetting that gas prices have gave up, freight coats have gone up, prices of the various materials have gone up, labor costs have gone up. Somebody has to eat those costs and it’s not going to be the company malign and selling products, it’s going to be the consumer.

I did not see that Ping did that. What did they raise prices on? Who else did it?

Ping tossed the prices on the g425 driver and woods last year. I don’t recall what other brand did it.

There was a $50 increase on the fairway woods and iirc it was the same for the drivers.

Most brands either had new releases coming out shortly after this or in early 2022 so their products has the normal increase with a new release where Ping did it mid release of an existing line.

With the current state of the economy it could easily happen again with any brand

I think my issue was PXG came out as ultra premium for a year to draw everyone's interest and while one company had a price increase on one line, PXG's ups and downs resemble a wave pool and they have now lost all perceived value to me. In my mind, I know they can always be had cheaper. Not sure if it is still the case, but I don't remember any company other than PXG charging $60 for shipping as well and not even offering KBS or DG shafts as stock. The $20-30 per grip upcharge is also rough. Seems like the luster has rubbed off and now they are trying to nickel and dime to keep the same margins.

Their price fluctuations look like the price chart for any given commodity rather than a retailer trying to manage a brand.  Which, speaking only for myself, I find odd.

I keep hearing, sung to the tune of the Wayfair ads on television, "PXG...we've got just what you need!"

It appears you haven’t really listened to Bob parsons on the mgs podcasts or other interviews. First their initial high prices were more than a year long. They were that way for several years until they did the heroes program.

once they paid off their initial investment to start the company he lowered prices on the clubs to give back to the customers. They also then switched from being in green grass shops to being a dtc, that cuts out costs as well and now they control everything from start to finish including inventory management. Bob is a pretty good businessman too. He got brands to explore the high end market like Callaway with the epic irons that were roughly $2000 per set. 
 

Bob also wanted to expand so he created a lower end line with the 0211. He brought these in lower than all the other mainstream brands. This opens the doors to bring in customers looking for lower cost clubs.

Being that he is in control of all inventory he can carry previous year models and sell them for lower prices and let the people have options. 
 

the brand now has their high end premium line in the 0311, one to two previous year offerings at lower prices and then the 0211  for the consumer not looking to spend premium money, but still get quality clubs.  This has helped the brand have as much market share as cobra, Wilson and Mizuno.

Also allows him to do sales on the clubs for whatever time he chooses, the raise them back up to normal prices. The 0211 at were as low as $69/club and have ranged between that and $109 per club

What other company sends their clubs in a nice box with a clean presentation? None other than scotty Cameron for high end putters.

Read above. They have full control of all aspects and run sales all the time and usually far longer than most other brands. They are also on 1.5-2 year cycle for releases so sales help reduce inventory

If i'm paying say $69 per iron, but upcharged $39 for what other companies give free, a DGS300 shaft, then $30 for a golf pride tour wrap grip (my numbers are exact as I have a window up  building the PXG set up now) then the PXG low end comes out to any other OEM's price. I'm still not sure how they justify $60 for shipping, although I guess that black box costs at least $1. Parson's has always been an over the top salesman and I love how he supports veterans, but I've hit the clubs and the value just does not stack up. The main difference is that he has the cash to pay for the hype on the front end where most DTC brands rely on testing and results to support their growth. PXG also does still sell through a few retail outlets although it isn't advertised much for some reason.

Agreed. PXG has a bunch of hidden costs that cut into the “value” they say they are providing. According to the MGS reviews, Sub70 provides a nice box and a handwritten note thanking you for your purchase (see below, copied from https://forum.mygolfspy.com/tests/29-sub70-949x-fairway/)

I was shocked at what some OEMs are charging for grips right now. If you consider they are buying in bulk, and less than what we can buy them for at retail, and charging 2-3 times retail it's a helluva profit center.
