    Was fit for a driver, fairway, and hybrid today. Awesome clubs and the fitting was well worth it! Fit into the Tensei Pro White in all three clubs.



    Can't wait to get them!




    Where are you guys getting fit? I called our local Club Champion and they said they didn't have all the 2019 heads in yet.




    There is a PXG studio in Northbrook (just north of Chicago). It's pretty awesome!

    Put in the order for the X with Tensei PO, am excited to try it. Like that the head is heavy (206g I believe) and its 45”. No one does that anymore. Plus I think the look is great.


    What flex? Did you blind order it or get fitted?


    Went in blind. I ordered from a local rep. Went 70TX same as the Tensei Whites I play. If I hate the Orange I can switch it out. Couldn’t do a Club Champion fitting(only local fitter with PXG). Such a tedious process of trying to up sell shafts that would come with the club for extra 125$ through PXG. Last time I did a driver fitting they couldn’t find anything better than what I had fit for myself. Just rather avoid the BS and put it on BST if I don’t like it. I look at lost money on clubs as a demo fee.




    I like that motto. Lost money on clubs is a demo fee. I’m going to try that one of my wife too:)

    Tried the new drivers today during a local fitting with the area rep. Head to head vs my G400 Max (Also was fitted for me), I gained 6mph ball speed, higher launch and lower spin. Love the sound too. Very muted. Kept the same loft as my G400 Max.




    X or XF?




    XF — though the X was no slouch for me.

    Local area PXG master fitter. IMO, Club Champion is a hassle because they're always trying to push high dollar exotic shafts.

    I feel like once I decided on M4 heads at Club champion, he deliberately put me into a shaft I couldn’t directly order from Taylormade. I’m not buying $2500 worth of clubs for $4500 no matter how good they are assembled. I swung PXG but shouldn’t have told him I’m a firefighter and could get them through the heroes program.

    Agreed! Don’t forget about puring each head and swing weighting everything for more jack$$$.

    Ironically my current PXG driver the X is D7. I ordered it that way with tensei orange and they made it perfect. Perfect length, swing weight and accounted for grip and everything. I went and checked it and the guy at the golf store walked back and said “D 7 point 0” and I was juiced. I also love hitting it. I’m not sure if I’m totally in the minority on this but it’s awesome. Can’t wait to play the new one.

    Man I'm sorry to be that guy, but sounds odd to me to pick up 6mph. I mean I think the PXG could be special too, but that's a huge delta.

    Some of the R & D team left PING for PXG so there are some similarity's as I had to throw that in there about being a PING knockoff since they Bob tried his best to throw a lawsuit at TaylorMade's P790's irons and failed. Actually there is no driver out there worth $500 so it's just a statement so keep your crumbs as you might need them being a PXG FAN Boy.

    Valuable post. Thank you for your insight.

    I do have to say I like what PXG has done with the pricing on this driver. $575.00 is a great price especially with what everyone else is doing. In the beginning it would of been better if they would of said you know our pricing is high because it cost us more to order 10,000 heads. Now they probably built the hype up. Got more people into it. And then ordered more units. The supplier I am sure would give a better discount with 20k heads vs 10k

    While there may be similarities those engineers now have free reign with their designs. It may not be worth it to you but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth it to someone else.



    As far as I know the pxg vs Tm lawsuit is still going on so how can you say it was a fail.

    Just played again with my original X model. If they somehow were able to change the look at address.. make it look more square.. or whatever this would be the best driver I’ve ever played. Hearing that the new one looks awesome. Could be the real winner.

    Have driver fitting tomorrow. Testing only 0811 X model with Pro White, Snergy Black, Elements Proto, TPT proto 14 shafts. All TX in diffferent weight ls each model shaft from 75g to 100g.

    With 0811X head weight at 199g and testing some counterbalance shafts will be going to at least 212g to get desired SW.

    Will report back.




    How did it go?

    Tested both Driver and 13* 2 wood against M2 3 wood. Current driver M1 460 7.5* so same set up in PXG 9* model turned down to 7.5*. PXG head set at 7.5* still looked really good and square. Ball flight with slight PXG launched higher 13* vs 11* with M1. Highest smash was 1.46 so a little low. Weight was added to PXG head, up to 206g to have SW around D2. Feel, sound and consistency of the face were excellent. Spin was consistently 1600-1800 without compromising launch so the PXG driver really delivers from that standpoint.

    The sleeper was the 2 wood. Compared to M2, the distance with the PXG was the same but the launch to achieve the same spin numbers was around 3-4* higher. Feel and consistency were far better with the PXG.

    Overall, once dialed in with the correct shaft the feel, consistency, higher launch/lower spin combo of the PXG will make this club a great driver. The 2 wood is a must if you are looking for a long 3 wood from the tee. Testing conditions were not ideal, low 40's and 20-30 MPH winds but both clubs gave a tight shot pattern.

    My mistake as I thought they would have been much more as both are over priced

    And really, if you care about mass properties and the actual performance of a club, the new PXG's are (reportedly) dissimilar from what PING currently has on the market. One of these new PXG drivers has (reportedly) a higher MOI than any PING offering, and the other PXG has a vastly lower center of gravity.



    I'm all for merited PXG critique, but yeah...



    ...two strikes.




    This guy shows to bash in every PXG thread.
    Actually I have said a few good things as really I'm surprised that how easy it is to justify a purchase when the newer stuff comes out when it's no better than the previous model. Never hear much about the Sugar Daddy wedges why is that? Anyhow glad PXG is your club of choice. If the Hero's program was offered when I bought my last set I may have bought a set but I was fitted and very pleased except for the price I paid. Oh well, I don't care how people spend their money as we all work hard for our money.
