PXG expanding Battle Ready putter collection with Closer and Spitfire

Published

on

PXG is expanding its Battle Ready Collection of putters with the all-new: Closer and Spitfire models which are 100 percent milled and have been engineered to combine high MOI with prominent alignment features to increase confidence on the greens. 

“Golfers love options. And our new Battle Ready Closer and Spitfire are two of the very best putters you’ll ever use. Period. These putters are fully optimized, from CG and MOI to stability and alignment so that you can sink more putts” -PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons

Battle Ready Closer

The Battle Ready Closer is a high MOI wide-body blade featuring high-density tungsten in the heel and toe to increase the putter’s stability compared to the previous model and optimize the center of gravity.

Beyond the flange sightline, the geometry of the head is intentionally built around parallel and perpendicular lines for easy alignment.

Battle Ready Spitfire

The Spitfire is a “wide-winged” mallet with the wings built using tungsten to create a very high-MOI and to also aid with alignment.

Technology

  • Optimized face pattern – Like with previous PXG putters, the pyramid face pattern optimizes the ball speed across the putter face by reducing speed on center strikes while also retaining speed towards the heel and toe, all providing a soft feel. The face ensures consistency in all parameters that affect roll including; initial ball velocity, launch angle, spin rate, and skid.
  • Tungsten weighting – For maximum stability, the putter has an added tungsten frame along the perimeter to boost MOI and create a deeper center of gravity. The Tungsten works alongside the lightweight aluminum frame to remove mass away from the center while still having ports for weight customization.

Price, specs, and availability

Both the Battle Ready series Closer and Spitfire putters will retail at $525 but are being introduced at a special introductory price of $295. For more information or book a putter fitting, visit PXG.com or call 844.PLAY.PXG.

Specs will vary based on putter configurations, but each putter will have the option for a plumber’s neck, Heel Shafted, Double Bend, or Armlock – provide additional customization based on a player’s unique stroke style.

Your favorite draw-biased driver and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing draw-biased drivers. WRXer ‘Pete52’ recently tried out TaylorMade’s SIM2 Max driver and was impressed with the dispersion, and asks fellow members for their picks for top draw-biased drivers in our forums.

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.

  • Nelson.br.1515: “I have the Callaway Big Bertha B21 driver and love it. Sounds great, solid distance and mishits are comparable in distance to centered strikes. Most consistent driver I have ever had, better than Callaway Fusion & Ping G400 Max.”
  • Davidv: “If you want a draw driver with good distance, then the Ping 425 SFT is the one. I had it, and it definitely has a draw bias almost impossible to hit a slice or cut shot.”
  • PZero: “M6 D Type. I’m hitting bombs with it.”
  • Wardonation: “RadSpeed XD. No brainer.”
