Went to get fitted for some irons yesterday and left with irons(5-GW), hybrids(19/22), 3 wood, and a driver(0811XF). The Heros program is a heck of a deal. For me, I couldn't beat the prices nor the performance with any other brand!  Can't wait for everything to come in!

What driver are you currently using and what gains did you find in 0811XF? Can you give your SS , distance and flight also?

Let me just start before getting roasted for not knowing specifics, by saying I am by no means a good player, just trying to have fun on the course and improve. I am currently gaming a Titleist 913 D2/ Diamana D+ 72g(that I was never fitted for). SS with the 0811XF was 105, distance was carrying 250ish? The trackman went down half way through the fitting, and I was testing at an unfamiliar driving range.


Sounds good! Did you see 10+ carry gains?

Yah I definitely saw gains in my carry distance, but again I can’t give an accurate amount, I would probably say 10 would be a decent guess. I did notice a lot better control for me, maybe it was the shaft? Either way it worked better for me than what I currently play. Sorry, I know it’s probably not the answer you were looking for.

Where did you do the fitting?

Down in Virginia Beach.  Ryan helped me out at Princess Anne Country Club.

Va Beach is my home town. Born and raised. I moved to Richmond in 2002.

I’ve never played PACC, but I’ve heard it’s nice. I’m a member at Elizabeth Manor in Portsmouth. We took a road trip down and played there today.

Yah PACC was more than accommodating. There was a woman’s college golf tournament going on at the time, but everything looked fantastic. If you’re ever down here and don’t have anyone to play with let me know!

I won't be switching the bag to PXG (simply can't afford it nor do I want to carry that kind of coin around everywhere), but got a good deal on a 0311x UDI that came in this week. Absolutely love it and best driving iron i've ever hit. Bravo PXG on that design. It's also the first UDI that i've been able to consistently dial up or down without the end result getting sketchier. (210-245).

Sorry if already asked but can anyone give me an idea in the offset of the standard gen1 0311 irons? Closer to a ping g or less???i want to place an order but I have not seen them at address in person.... thanks

They have considerably less than a Ping G (as does the XF). .135 vs .200 for the 7 iron.

For reference this is also less than the Apex CF16.

Going to be changing the shafts in my irons and wedges. The Modus3 105 shafts feel great, but they go wayyyyyyy toooooooo highhhhhh. The most obvious decision would be to go back to my trusty C-Taper 130x's, but I have enjoyed not waking up with aching arms and shoulders after playing golf lately, so may look elsewhere for a solution.

First time out with my xfs today no range session just played 18 with a group of 20 guys. I was extremely happy! Hit a couple bad shots but for first time hitting them I had way more positives. I usually struggle with nicer fairways but today definitely easier to hit then my g25s. I was taking nice divots where with my old pings I never did and struggled from tighter lies. Mite sound dumb but where I live most places have extremely hard fairways

Has anyone else noticed how reviews on PXG change depending on price paid?  When people are paying full price for the PXG, that they say they are greatest thing since sliced bread.  Compare that to when people get them at a discounted rate that is more in line with other irons.  Then, you begin to hear how they may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread and how they may not be better than other options out there.

Don't think so. I've heard from a few friends who paid full price for PXG and didn't like the result. Everyone is different. The tough part is getting a set that doesn't work and then finding a way to sell them. Tough when you've paid that much coin to get anything close to your return on investment. Getting them on the "cheap" is nice, but I don't think it will dictate a review.

I got my set "cheap" for $175/iron and I love them. They feel amazing and are very forgiving, not much else I can ask for.

Less important, though notable, is the aesthetics. I just really like the way they look. I bought them kind of on a whim, but I'm really glad I did.

My only complaint is the grips which I'm finally changing out this weekend. Can't wait.

I had that problem so I went with the Modus3 120 and problem solved.   I still have a high ball flight, but I like the trajectory better.

I’m glad I’m not the only one. This afternoon I was on the GC Quad, and I was hitting 7 irons with 8300 spin (srixon 2 piece range balls), and a peak height of 48 yards.  Way too high and way too spiny. I usually hit the ball with very little sidespin, but for some reason these shafts have increased it tenfold, particularly in the short irons.

I find the Nippon site rather confusing. If I am reading it correctly, the 120s and 125s are the highest launching, the 105s in the middle, and the 130s launch low bullets. I’m going to try loads of different shafts next Thursday, and hopefully I will end up back in something around the 125-130 mark. I’m intrigued by the Oban steel shafts, but I fear I’d have the same problems with these that I have with the 105s. I think it will basically come down to CTaper, $Taper, Modus3 130 and PX LZ.

Finally chatted with someone at PXG about the specs being so far off. They were apologetic and offered to have me send them back for them to readjust. Seemed genuinely surprised they were off since they’re left to one builder for their entire completion, not pushed down an assembly line.

Won’t put the $$ back in my pocket for getting them bent correctly after the fact but they did send a little swag for the trouble. Appreciate they at least tried to make it right.

I have an itch for new clubs. As I do every couple years lol. Currently I game a combo set of Titleist 716 CB and MB. I love my irons. I hit them well and Im used to them. I just want something new and shiny to look at more than need.

That said Ive always been intrigued with PXG since they came out. I have an opportunity to get the Gen1 at 50% discount through the hero program and am seriously considering 0311T.

I know theres a million reviews out there. But any real world experience of anyone going from CB or MB to 0311T?  Forget price if you could and just keep it based on performance, feel, etc please.

I switched to the Gen 1 PXG 0311 through the heros program and they are hands down the best iron Ive ever hit Ive played blades and MB and nothing compares.  I would recommend the switch !

I went from Apex MB Raw to 0311T, and I echo the sentiments about the feel. Its like nothing I have ever hit before (in a good way). They fly a bit longer and launch a bit higher, but I think thats partly down to the fact that I am having issues with the shafts, which will be rectified next week. Theyre maybe a little bit chunkier than I am used to, but I cant deny that they frame the ball superbly at address, and the turf interaction is second to none, despite having a slightly wider sole. The relief on the trailing edge of the sole really helps.

So, do the Gen1’s have gapping issues like other hollow back gel filled irons? Are they distance irons or have more traditional lofts?

What about gapping issues?

Does the PW play true to loft or would there be a gap to a standard 50* gap wedge?

Any gap issues between the 7 and 8 iron?

Id likely be looking at the players iron.

Just a heads up for those considering the online deal on the Gen 1 irons.

The price has come back down to $175 an iron. I was charged $195, but they refunded me the $20.

They aren't listed on the site, but if you phone them you can also get the driving irons for the same price as the regular irons.

Bit of a bargain compared to the price of alternative driving irons.
