I'm all for giving them a chance, but go get fitted if you can.  I tried PXG individually at first and although they felt nice (they still do) and I thought they were great, I had 3 other sets of irons that beat them in ball speed, dispersion, and spin.  I ended up with Mizuno 900 forged which look great and the numbers were so much better.  It was worth $150 fitting cost to save me the extra $1,500 or so that I would have paid more for the the PXG.  Don't get me wrong, I like the irons, but for me the value wasn't there.

Did you not go for a fitting?  You could take your clubs with you and you'd know how they compared before ordering.

No. I enjoy doing the fitting myself in the comfort of my own home.
Plus it's winter here in Michigan and I need a winter hobby.

I also needed to justify my new home simulator w/ Foresight Quad launch monitor and club fitting software.
Plus, I wanted another set of irons for 2018, so I got that going for myself too.

This is meant to be hating on the PXGs but what makes you want to spend the $? Is it the clubs themselves or the club you are in owning them? With the clubs available right now I have a hard time believing they are worth double what a set of MP-18 SCs, Cally X-Forged, TM 790 or any of them cost.

For me id get one of the above sets and go on a golf trip. But if you have your heart set, get fitted and enjoy.

There's a sponsored ad that i always see on this site from Clublender that says "Play PXG's for as low as 63$ a day!"

And i always think, man that doesn't sound low at all. That actually sounds outrageously high.

I love the looks of PXG but if I was going to blow that much coin I'd have to have a set of new Miura's first.

I have a excellent short game. It's unfortunate that it starts on the Tee.

Different markets, different type of clubs.  Miura's are also a lot cheaper than PXG.

Still have my eye on a set of XFs or just the regular 0311s. My 0311X 3 iron has been nothing short of amazing. But I refuse to keep it unless I get irons to match, OCD before anything.

Or you may not want to hold off and get the current price of the clubs. It seems as if a big price increase is coming from reading other threads.
