Is it even possible that PXG comes out with a club that is comparable to Titleist/Taylormade/Callaway?  I am talking 150.00 a club range.  You would think that those would fly off the shelf.

The PXG way is that, there is no shelf.

I think that somewhere down the line, PXG will accommodate a true blade and do something without the plastic inside but, never mass produced and never on the shelves for that buyer.

In this business, you hafta release some new s*** every so often. If you don’t then you will lose money. You will fold. Deep pockets can be emptied.

PXG did a great job with all of their lines but their bread and butter are those irons. And though they’re still incredible, they’re due for a face lift. If not, an additional traditionalist model.

Why is it. That whenever someone says they don’t like PXG or offers there opinion on the clubs. The number one response is. Well if you can’t play then you can’t afford them.
I can certainly afford them. I played them. I gave them 2-3 rounds and they were out of my bag. After my fitting i was like hyped about the clubs. They felt amazing. I couldn’t hit a bad shot. Bringing them to the course. Total opposite. Honestly i like the clubs. There attractive. Personally if i has to do it all over again. I wish i had a different fitter. He put me in a shaft. I shouldn’t have played. Cut down the clubs after seeing me swing 10 times. My mind set. I would of done it much different. Plus i had the 0311. The head was just too big for me. For those say they go so long. It’s the lofts. There jacked up. Everyone does it. I went into my fitting wanting to do a combo set and well i didn’t leave with what i wanted. I did get a 3 hybrid which i thought was a great club. But it’s no different then my m2 or m4.

I think they look great. The new model looks good. But these do not justify the cost. I am not a low handicapper in anyway. But why is it these clubs have how many professional wins?? Lydia ko was the best golfer hands down with callaway and now she can’t get into a top 10. Not that it matters too much. But i don’t believe the hype.

If they felt so strongly about their clubs. They would be putting it in more golfers hands at a affordable price. Most people that spend the money 9/10 are going to say they are the best. Cause they just shelled out over 2-3k.

Lydia changing coaches and caddies more often than some people changes underwear probably had more to do it than just clubs.
Dont have any numbers on it but considering that they dont have that many pros compared to TM, titleist etc they cant be that far behind in "per capita" wins if such a thing could be measured

I am very curious to start reading and watching reviews of these new gen 2 irons.  It’s been a while and I gotta believe there’s something there that makes them better than 1st gen.  We shall see.  Kind of exciting times.

Gel is not a state of matter.  What is in the PXG heads would be considered a solid or a colloid.

there are rumors of a 4th model but I highly doubt they would come out with a $150 price point unless its the Gen1.  At the price point of the Gen2 at $395 a club a $150 club would take most of the sales of higher priced models.

Heard one line will be called something along the line of 0311P, guessing the P is for players, maybe a middle step between standard and T or maybe just a new name for the 0311 since it didnt have a letter

When someone says if PXG can do a club @ $150. Is comical. They are not in that price point market . That is asking Ferrari to build a car for under 100k.

PXG is not going to produce new clubs in 2 year cycles like everyone else.  Thats not their backbone. Thats not how and why they were started. If you want them and can afford them buy them.  Period.  They're selling golf clubs.  They're not coming up with the cure for cancer.   Whether you like PXG or think they suck is neither here nor there.  The fact of the matter is the company is growing by leaps and bounds and they have tapped into something really really big.  I see zero negative energy coming out of any of their social media posts or do I see any negative numbers financially and I've done my homework.   I'm not here to start an argument, but I truly think they are here to stay.  I'm very curious to see and read about the reviews on the new irons.  Its been 4 years now and I think this is going to be huge for them.  Competition and the open market is a good thing.

I was just reading on this. Interesting that they are bringing out a SGI model. I can’t inagine anyone in that category, considering most are very new to the sport, would be initially interested in a spend like that? But I have to believe that the reason they are coming out with one is from demand. Good for them. I like mine, but I’m not overlay enamored by them. And have considered trading them just get some cash back.

I think they are coming out with SGI for combo sets.  SGI could be popular in the long irons.

I like to bust on the idiocy of PXG and I am not going to spoil the fun but I have a serious question. With the "massive forgiveness" and a "sweet spot the size of Texas", why would you need a SGI club?

I was just reading on this. Interesting that they are bringing out a SGI model. I can’t inagine anyone in that category, considering most are very new to the sport, would be initially interested in a spend like that? But I have to believe that the reason they are coming out with one is from demand. Good for them. I like mine, but I’m not overlay enamored by them. And have considered trading them just get some cash back.

I think they are coming out with SGI for combo sets.  SGI could be popular in the long irons.
There is no way on God's green earth that reasonable people will pay $400 for a 3 iron.  :)

Very nice updates!!

Listened to the podcast where it is mentioned that the Gen2 vs Gen1 dispersion is 40% tighter due to the improved internal milled cavity and new COR2 material.

For the 95-100 shooters who have more money than they know what to do with.  And they all have new polymer insert called Cor2 which is supposed to increase ballspeed 2-3 mph??  Dont think that equates to much and frankly they dont need more distance.

I will test these out because I like going against the grain and buying things people complain about. Just not sure they will be good enough to beat the 0311/0311T. The good thing is, once the used ones hit the secondary market they will, hopefully, drive down the price of the previous models and all of a sudden I think you will see some people buying them who said they'd never play them.... yet that remains to be seen (and I know there will be people who still won't play them, and that is fine.

Well they have to make some wild claims to justify $400 a club.  Will be interesting if Shiels or Crossfield compares these to Gen1 at some point.  40% tighter dispersion?

I think at some point theyll drop price of Gen1 theyll have to no one will still pay $350 a club for "old tech"

A little more on this..............



To put hard numbers on it, the new material is 20% faster than TPE, which is one of the reasons why, loft for loft and length for length, GEN 2 irons produce 1-2 MPH more ball speed than the original. That gets you more distance while contributing to a higher trajectory. COR2’s increased resiliency, along with other design enhancements we’ll discuss in a bit, preserve more ball speed on mis-hits, ultimately yielding an eye-opening 40% tighter dispersion.
That’s a big number.
“The number sounds crazy,” says Brad Schweigert, “but it’s real. It comes from robot testing multiple hit locations. We’re seeing a 40% improvement in dispersion.”
It’s notable that relative to GEN 1’s TPE, PXG is using more of the COR2 material in the upper, middle, and lower regions of the cavity. In addition to the distance and dispersion benefits, it’s that extra bit of goo that PXG says creates an appreciable improvement in sound and feel.

THIS is what I slogged through 100+ posts to read. I don't/won't play expensive clubs but I'm still curious about tech advancements / improvements and PXG seems to bring something to the table. I propose starting a new sub-forum called DON'T EVER PLAY... where negative one-line responses to any OEM's offerings can be posted.
