    One thing about the PXG drivers is they feel very solid. 0811 spun too much for me maybe will try X with Heroes. Heck you can get a $175-200 shaft in it

    Some people dislike the muted sound, but that’s one of the things I like the most.

    It looks like a combo Nike Vapor Flex 440 and Ping G400, which is not a bad thing...

    Was Ryan Moore playing this driver at the Safeway?

    Hopefully this feels and sounds a lot better than their current offerings.

    How is that not a direct ripoff of the Ping G crown design? It’s eerily similar with the dots and everything on the crown. Wow.

    The current XF might be the best sounding driver out there

    Funny isn’t it. People on here crave holtmelted heads so they sound like the muted drivers you see on tv, then because PXG is the brand that decides to release one that fits the bill, people complain. I bet if TM, Ping or Callaway released a driver that sounded muted like a PXG they’d go crazy for it. I guess PXG can’t win whatever they do in the eyes of some folk.

    The original X doesn't look bad....what shaft?

    Actually those numbers are legit and it may even be more. Ryan Moore went from short hitter to slightly longer than average hitter, I used to follow his driving stats because he was the only driver that I could relate to, he seems to have picked up about 6-8mph of ball speed and I noticed that his launch is lower and there is way more rollout. Not sure if it is the new driver or new technique or just a new workout but he is significantly longer this year.

    Yes and he played well with it too.

    If this Driver is any improvement over the G400Max Driver I have right now then I would have some interest. The G400Max makes it almost down right impossible to miss a fairway.

    Ryan Moore was getting about 50 yds off roll on the low looking bullets he was hitting off the tee.

    They should have used the Darkness Skull as the alignment aid.

    That or a small version of their logo would have been better.
  • SubaruWRXSubaruWRX Members Posts: 3,280 ✭✭
    IMO, it would be a winner if it didn’t have all the screws on the sole, was a bonded hosel, and had a smaller understated pxg logo on it. I’d pay for that regardless of it having resemblance of other drivers!

    Boy that's an understatement. Anytime the magic 3 letters "PXG" come out so do all the haters.

    House Fly technology LMAO . I've owned PXG equipment and I felt like a golf poser with it in my bag . I have a couple of friends that play to scratch with equipment that can be found for pennies on the dollar ( 1st gen ap2's and Ping i15 driver etc). It makes it hard to even consider these clubs I can't imagine getting beat and hearing the smack talk " you should have spent that money on lesson's etc" Love gear that's why I'm here. Best of Luck to PXG !!! Hey maybe I can get this driver with my brother Hero program discount ....

    It says more about you than PXG. Obviously you feel like a poser, so that seems to be your problem, not PXG. Me? I don’t care what people think or feel. I show up with my bag full of PXG equipment and I do my thing.



    And, I guess my quality of friends is a bit better than yours because I have never been teased or laughed about my PXG equipment by my friends. It is called maturity.
