Parsons launches Tour irons: PXG 0311T

Published

on

PXG has added a new iron option to its stable; the 0311T — the T stands for “tour.” The company’s new 0311T irons are more compact, have thinner top lines, narrower soles and less offset than the previously launched 0311 irons, which you can read more about here.

Billionaire founder Bob Parsons, for which the irons are named, expressed his intent with the new release.

[quote_box_center]”It’s important to understand that PXG 0311T irons are not built to compete with game improvement or player’s irons,” Parsons said in a press release. “We designed them to compete with blades – and there’s not a blade in the world PXG 0311T irons won’t significantly outperform in both feel and playability.”[/quote_box_center]

Just like PXG’s initial iron launch, the 0311Ts have tungsten screws on their back cavities, helping spread weight to the perimeter of the irons to boost forgiveness. They’re also forged from S25C carbon steel and use a structural thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) injected between the face and the back cavity, helping boost ball speed, durability and soften feel.

The 0311T irons come with the same hefty price tag, as well — $350 per club. For more information on purchasing the irons or finding a local retailer/fitter, visit PXG’s website.

With less offset, a more traditional “tour” shape than their predecessors and a promise of more workability, the 0311Ts are likely to pop up in PGA Tour players’ bags in the 2015-2016 season. Ryan Moore (BMW Championship) and James Hahn (Frys.com Open) are already gaming them in 2015.

    I picked up the Gen 2 irons and they’re amazing. Long high with solid Forged feel. Softer than the P790 & Prior Gen 1.

    I’m going to demo the 0311’s later in the year. If they are better than anything else that I hit– I’ll buy em. I only use irons 5-PW so I only need 6 of them.

    Two ends of the spectrum this week. Mizuno club reviews with what I consider the best looking clubs I have seen vs these which I consider the worst looking clubs I have seen. ‘Eye of the beholder’ material here. I would not get them for looks. I could not get them for cash.

      If you think those are the ugliest irons ever then you clearly don’t remember the Cleveland VAS irons.

    Why is it so thick? Is it because of the insert piece inside the head? Could have at least thinned out the top line, I would have thought.

    I admire the individuality and the bravery to bring these to market, but Scratch couldn’t make it, and more’s the shame. These are just plain ugly, they fit in no real category, offer ABSOLUTELY nothing over many other irons on the market and will die soon – RIP

      Yah, but Scratch didn’t have a billionaire owner who can’t think of anything better to spend his money on besides maybe shooting elephants. They also aren’t aimed at the person who goes into their logo golf shop and buys clubs. These are very high end money clubs aimed at extremely well paid CEO-types of the world. If I had money to throw out the window, I’d definitely give them a try.

    At first glance I thought these clubs were cool looking……….not any more, these are just darn UGLY and I am sure there are plenty of clubs just as good, just old school I guess…….

    I can see spending $350 per club if you make your living playing the game. Otherwise, the best of the rest of the club makers should do just fine for most amateurs. That said, I can’t see spending that much on a club if you don’t have the game that would warrant such a purchase?

      People who make a living playing the game rarely, if ever, have to pay for their clubs. For those who don’t play to make money, golf is a hobby. There are far more expensive hobbies, and far cheaper ones. Buying golf clubs is not about “warranting” a purchase. You can buy a full set of clubs (used, models several years old) for the price of one Parsons iron. And nothing ever “warrants” buying a new set. People buy new clubs because they want to, or enjoy doing so. A reasonable price is determined by the individual. For some people, $3k on a set of irons is nothing. Some private country clubs cost over a million to join and have yearly dues in the tens of thousands. A full bag of Parsons is pocket change.

        I’m talking about common sense; the skill it takes to get the most out of what a $350 club can do for you. It’s like spending $550-$600 on a new driver which will allow you to hit the ball 20 yards further. That’s great, but if you have a hard time hitting the ball down the middle, all you’re doing is going further left or right. People also buy new clubs because the hope they’ll improve their game. Having been around those private clubs, I can assure you that you won’t find many of the members carting around a $3,000 set of clubs.

    Hilarious – Second paragraph says its important to understand they are not designed to compete with GI or players irons but rather blades.
    Third paragraph goes straight from that to the tungsten screws shift weight to the perimeter to boost forgiveness – coz that’s what blades are all about “forgiveness”! I stopped reading after that…

      Most new product launched each year are Advertised as game changers.
      The next best thing.
      But every few years there are new Companies or Products that can change the game, i.e., Ping, Adams, both changed how clubs were made and performed.
      I think that Bob Parsons’s company just may have found a special niche with the PXG 0311T irons.
      They fit in between a blade and a game improvement club.
      For those who like the look of a blade, but can’t quite hit one.
      Keep an open mind on new products, although 90% of new released products are fashion.
      Try before you buy.

        I hear what you’re saying. Just pointing out that it looks like they’re not sure where their iron fits – if it’s a blend between blade and players then say that’s what you’re trying to achieve. Also not so niche with titleist t-mb and I’m sure others at a more palatable price point.

      “Damn I got too much distance of that thin heely strike, I was hoping to come up short in the bunker” – no player ever

      Nobody (at least not in their right mind) plays blades because they are “less forgiving.” If you offer a club that has the characteristic of blades that player is looking for (looks, feel, etc.) while making it perform better when mishit then you have a better club.

      With that said, $350 dollars per stick is WAY out of my price range and I stopped considering them when I read that. Writing them off after “less-forgiving” because they are aiming for the golfer that prefers blades seems silly. Even the S-55 that they compare them to in the article has tungsten weighting to improve forgiveness- Ryan Moore and the other pros that play them must be weak.

    The shop I work at just recently got some demos of the previous version along with the woods and hybrids. I hit the wedge and thought it felt good but nothing special. The irons however were easy to hit and launch and they had a really solid sound at impact. I wouldn’t say $300 a club good but they were nice!

    They still look a little chunky to me, especially the top line. I’ll keep my Miura’s.

    I really like the looks and concept of these. I play the miura mb-001 but I may have to try these at some point.

    I kind of like steam punk but will stay with my $900 Srixons/dunlops till I can justify $3k for an entire set…
    Plus I can’t imagine I’m good enough to need little tungsten screws all over the place….

    But they are very cool looking and if they ever got near $1500 including shafts and wedges I may bite…that will ever happen

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf
