PXG launches new 0311 ST Gen4 blade irons

Published

on

PXG has unveiled its new 0311 ST Gen4 blade irons crafted for the low handicap golfer who craves greater workability, enhanced control, and exceptional feel.

The new additions from PXG are triple forged from a strong 6280 carbon steel and are engineered to offer players a varied clubhead design supporting extreme workability in the scoring irons and more forgiveness in the long irons.

PXG 0311 ST Gen4: Cavity view

Speaking on the new 0311 ST Gen4 blade irons, PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons said

“We spent a lot of time working with our tour players and other talented golfers to understand how we could pack more performance into our solid-bodied blades. We’ve integrated everything we learned into our new PXG 0311 ST GEN4 Blades. 

And, while these beauties might not be for the faint of heart at address, they certainly deliver total control for those who can swing them.”

With less offset throughout the set compared to its predecessors, PXG has introduced a varied blade length across the short, mid, and long irons with the new tour player-inspired designed irons.

The 3 through 5-irons present a slightly larger profile and small cavity in design to boost the moment of inertia (MOI) and forgiveness.

The 6 and 7-irons offer a thin topline and moderate blade size in a bid to provide exceptional face control and maximum workability, while the 8-iron through gap wedge feature a thinner topline and shorter blade length engineered to get the ball out of the rough with ease and accuracy.

In addition, the PXG 0311 ST Gen4 Blades also incorporate the brand’s Precision Weighting Technology, which leverages a large weight located near the center of gravity (CG) on the back of the clubhead, offering golfers various head weight configurations during a fitting.

“New PXG 0311 ST GEN4 Blades have cleaner lines, more forgiveness, and have increased my distances shared. They gave me the confidence to shoot my lowest score ever – 60 – at the 2021 Barbasol Championship!” – PXG tour professional and PGA TOUR winner James Hahn

PXG’s 0311 ST Gen4 Blades are available in Chrome or Xtreme Dark. The Xtreme Dark provides a matte-black aesthetic leveraging a Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) Coating, which significantly increases the surface hardness of the finish in design for improved wear resistance over time.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best used irons in the $350-$450 range

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing used irons. WRXer ‘siGno’ is a former scratch golfer looking to get back into playing and is on the hunt for a complete set of irons with a budget of $450.

He kicks off the thread, saying:

“Just curious subjectively, of course, what iron set you would go with if you only had $385-450 to spend total for a 3-P or 4-P set of irons? I’m getting back into the game I used to be scratch or +1 and haven’t played in years due to building a business. Just want to take it slow and not jump in too deep money wise right now.

Been eye balling the MP-54s and AP2 714’s. There is a nice listing for the 54s on eBay right now at +1/2,” which I need that I might snag. Just figured I’d get some opinions before dropping the money.”

And our members have been sharing how they would spend the money 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.
  • Markrip: “Check out Sub 70. They’re clubs stand up to the big OEMs, and their customer service is excellent. They’ll be close to your price point, and they are great at getting you the right set up for you. Check out the Sub 70 70 thread you’ll find a lot of satisfied customers.”
  • cwilk: “New Level 902 Forged. They would still have to be used at your price, but you should be able to find newer sets than you would big name OEM options. And they are great irons.”
  • cjlayer30: “Any used Mizunos that still have clean faces will be a great purchase. Got some MP-69s for $250 a year ago, and they are butter. If you want a little forgiveness but still a player’s set, I’d look around for a used set of Titleist CBs (any year).”
  • drumdude96: “The Wilson Staff FG Tour F5 are also a GREAT forged iron. They are well suited to low handicap players but also offer a good bit of forgiveness. I sold a set earlier this year and kinda wish I had held onto them.”

Golf Ball: Bridgestone TourB XS

Grips: Golf Pride MCC Align Midsize (driver), MCC Align (3w), MCC Black/Yellow

@Jil62: “As many folks know, I’m a long time TaylorMade player, so the bag is heavy on TM, but it’s no longer exclusively so. The biggest change I’ve made in 2021 is the ball. I grew up playing with wound balls, and as a result my short game was built around using spin, so I switched to the Tour B XS in June to bring back more consistency around the greens. That change also prompted a putter switch back to an old favorite due to the ball’s soft feel.

My iron setup is a little funky, but using the 790 and 770 for the 3 and 4 irons, respectively, allows me to hit my launch windows with those irons. I’ve been in a constant state of iron shaft testing for the past 3 years but have finally settled on double soft-stepped X100. This lowers the weight of the shaft down to around 125g and makes the tip play a little softer. I also play S400 in my PW to match the other wedges since I mostly play less than full shots with the PW.”

Get submitting your WITB in our forum as we’ll be publishing more and more of them on our front page over the coming days and weeks.

Callaway unveils new Jaws Full Toe wedges

Published

on

Callaway Golf has introduced its new Jaws Full Toe wedge, which will hit retail on September 9. 

Spotted earlier this year on Tour, the Jaws Full Toe combines four distinct technologies in design to provide a wedge with maximum spin, with the Jaws grooves extended across the face to provide spin anywhere that you make contact.

To increase the surface roughness of the clubface, Callaway added offset groove-in-groove technology and then combined it with a raw face (a first for Callaway) in design to create a wedge that offers enhanced spin and control on every shot.

In addition to spin, the new wedges contain a Full Toe shape which provides more face area with an enhanced toe peak.

The shaping works with the specialized C-Grind in design to make short shots around the green easy to hit, especially bunker shots and high flops.

Per the company, the wedge is built to perform on mid and full wedge shots too, with enhanced turf interaction characteristics.

At the same time, the Full Toe also pushes the CG higher in a bid to provide a lower, more controlled trajectory. Callaway’s Variable Weight Port System also helped push the CG away from the heel for solid contact and enhanced feel.

Callaway Jaws Full Toe wedges: Specs, Availability & Pricing

The Jaws Full Toe Wedges come stock with a premium Lamkin UTX grip, True Temper’s newest Dynamic Gold Spinner shaft in steel, or a Project X Catalyst wedge shaft in graphite. Available in two finishes: Raw Face Chrome and Raw Black.

  • Lofts: 54, 56, 58, 60, 64 degrees
  • Availability: September 9, 2021
  • Pricing: $169.99
