    Not sure of how their business model works, but any chance that we can get advance info on the release date or price?

    Shouldn't be so concerned with what others play. None of anyone's business.

    for the tech to have been so bad, it's sure does seem like there are a lot of major OEM's copying what PXG put out 3 years ago. ****... for all you **** haters, it looks like the illustrious Taylormade is about to send to market a driver with screws in the face.

    Interesting that most manufacturers would call a 13* FW a strong 3W these days but PXG going old school with the 2W designation.

    I was told the reps will have the heads on Dec 15. Not sure if the release date will be around the same time though.

    Cool ball marker:







    What does the #26 represent?




    Ball marker description on PXG site below:



    Designers Notes:

    Don't just mark your ball; make a statement. The Darkness Ball Marker features a milled skull insignia and the number 26, representing the 26th Marine Corps Regiment that PXG founder [url="https://www.pxg.com/about/bob-parsons-founder"]Bob Parsons[/url] served with during the Vietnam War.
    • Weight: 13.1 grams
    • Dimensions: 37.7mm x 30.7mm x 2.8mm
    • Zinc-Aluminum with black chrome finish





    Milled? Looks stamped to me...
  • snagy2000snagy2000 Members Posts: 1,541 ✭✭
    Oh this thing is milled...First time out last Friday with this fine piece of equipment, I dropped in 5 birdies on the day...If this new driver is half as good as the ball marker, I'll be buying 2...Kaboom, baby!!!!

    I was lucky enough to get to hit one of these today. I was getting fit for the Gen 1 irons because of their recent deal. The rep said he just got the new driver on his truck so we did some testing. Overall I really liked it. I hit the Gen 1 driver a few years ago and didnt like it. It was too spinny for me. The Gen 2 is completely different IMO. The feel is super muted. More muted than others drivers I've tried. I personally like a muted feel. I currently play a M3 440 with Evenflow 65x. We put that same shaft in the Gen 2 0311x. The distance was basically the same (within 1-2 yards). The biggest difference was the dispersion. Significantly tighter dispersion with the PXG. No clue why but I just hit bullets with it. The PXG also brought my ball flight down to a better level as I am a high ball hitter. Overall I was really pleased with the driver and would definitely bag it.

    Are you going to buy it when it becomes available?

    I believe he said price point is going to be $550 stock. That’s honestly a little above my price range especially since I’m buying new irons. I may have to wait to buy it used on the bay. I would have no problem gaming it though.

    $550 stock, that seems cheap for PXG. That will be the same price as the new TM and Cally offerings.

    I thought the exact same thing. Should be available mid Feb.

    Shocked it’s not more tbh. Agree on the gen1 driver, not a big fan but enjoy the irons. Is the gen2 the same as the proto that a number of the pros have been hitting? Think all but Johnson and Schwartzel are playing the proto.

    I wonder if the new fwys and hybrids will be priced accordingly too?

    Yes it’s the exact same as the one on the first page of this thread. Super matte black with carbon fiber. Looks like a Ping with carbon fiber

    I wonder if the new fwys and hybrids will be priced accordingly too?




    He told me the price on the fwy but I can’t remember. I know it was in the 4’s

    That pricing makes it more realistic for a lot of people to purchase. Hoping it performs.
