Spotted: PXG 0811X Driver

Published

on

There’s a new PXG driver being tested in Hilton Head at the RBC Heritage this week. Called the 0811X, the driver is said to be 400-500 rpm lower spinning than the company’s original 0811 driver and offer slightly more draw bias, according to a PXG representative. And like the 0811, it measures 460 cubic centimeters.

PXG, an upstart golf equipment company that has generated an unprecedented amount of buzz for a variety of reasons — its billionaire founder Bob Parsons, its exclusiveness, the company’s unique technologies and high-profile PGA Tour staff, for starters — has reduced the amount of weight-adjusting screws used from 16 in the 0811 to 11 in the 0811X.

    Great advertising for clubs that perform like every other. Nothing spectacular about it.
    Ask your players to play with range balls if the clubs are that good, Mr Parsons. Because you know they all want to play Pro-Vs and it’s the ball not the club

            Such a loser that he has to pretend to be somebody else because he doesn’t even know who he is when he looks at herself in the mirror

    I’m not a big fan of the matte finish on the crowns. These clubs look fantastic up until that point. The price is obviously another thing. There is little to no prestige in this company, and although the history is in the process of being written, I don’t see how the golf community will embrace a manufacturer that charges what PXG does. Interested to see how the train rolls in the coming years.

      I think the premise is a big roll of the dice that goes something like this: We’re charging insane prices because our stuff is _that_ much better. If these things get out there and good players find out they’re really _not_ that much better — maybe about as good as the best any other premium company puts out — you’ll see the bottom drop out quickly after that.

      It could be that if they’re really not noticeably better than anybody else’s best, selective perception will carry them for a while — as in, “Because I paid so much for them, I hear the angels sing every time I hit them.” So much of evaluating a new club is pure subjectivity, and that can be affected so much by the need to perceive value. Many players will remember the great shots, great feels, etc., and the bad ones won’t register (hey, it’s a new club anyway), at least for a while. (The same happens when somebody’s into a new instructional thing, too. You find what you want to find, for a while.)

      Or, I guess, maybe they really are that good. I’ve just seen it before, with some big new thing. Everybody loses their minds, there’s a wave of “it’s clearly the best ever,” and then it subsides. But we’ll see.

    Are Ping taking them to court? A g25 with a few bits of welding and drilling.

      Pxg designers are from ping! They own the patents!

        I’m not an expert on US law, but typically IP rights vest with the company, not the employee. I expect the leavers will also be subject to non-compete/non-solicit restrictions that should prevent them from poaching Ping ideas and staff.

    Conflicting images?

    1st image shows 0811X with no marker on crown. 4th picture shows marker on crown.

    Looks like the 0811x actually has the marker, and is deeper faced. Much like the Taylormade SuperTri and SuperDeep.

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing forged game improvement irons. WRXer ‘Monks66’ is on the hunt with more forgiveness, saying

“I currently play the Mizzy JPX Pro 825s, love them, but I don’t play as much golf these days, wondering if there is a forged iron out there with more forgiveness….thoughts?”

And our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tigercolt77: “You’ll get a lot of answers, and it comes down to what look/feel you prefer. I’d go with Callaway Apex cf19 personally. They check all the boxes.”
  • blopar: “Srixon ZX5 or PXG 0211, I have a set of each. Right now, I’m lovin’ the PXG’s.”
  • R5Two: “I would recommend hitting the ZX7, it has more forgiveness than you would think. Also, forged face insert T200 are great this year. +1 for the PXG sale is fire.”
  • 20six: “Mizuno Comp-EZ, if they could be found.”
