    very nice. Wonder is ST is for Super Tour being they're definitely the "bladiest" irons we've seen from PXG.

    Your sir are a smart pants....either a good guess or you are really Bob Parsons

    Bobby has an account here. So not him.

    These do look good. Not a screw fan. But the metal geek in me does love the fully milled look.

    I wonder what their designers would come up with if they could leave the screw thing behind. If Oct is still around in 2030 are they still going to put for screws in everything?

    The screw weights used by PXG is a brilliant idea for several reasons that are touched on from an article about their use:

    "Where PXG’s weighting system really shines, according to Brad Schweigert, is its unique ability to tune headweight. With most other adjustable mass systems, weight is moved in large chunks. By moving a large number of smaller weights, PXG’s system not only has the capabilities to spread mass over a larger area and improve inertia, the system’s real strength is that it offers the ability to easily adjust head and swing weight.

    With PXG’s system you can easily add or remove weight from the head without the permanence of hot melt or rat glue. Not only are weight changes non-permanent, but the PXG system was designed such that swapping tungsten weights or titanium (or vice versa) results in a change of exactly 1 swing weight point."

    This was largely written about the "woods" but is also pertinent to the irons where screw weights can be used for both swingweight changes, and changing the perimeter weighting of the head.

    Funny how the screws trigger so many people...

  • ssfrannyssfranny Lefty Boomers Posts: 2,697 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Wouldve been great if the iron weights were interchangeable and their known for the screws.

    $650 a stick apparently. So if you want 3-PW it’s going to be $5.200 for the set. I have to be wrong about this. Please let me be wrong

    Agreed. For that price I’d need to shave off more strokes than there are available to shave!!!! What on earth. I know each set it made by hand but wow. Any tour pro playing them???

  • wkuo3wkuo3 RELEASE Members Posts: 4,196 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Maybe they could justify the retail price if they put 24K gold plating on the screws. The yellow color will make the screws stand out even more.

    Anyone paying full price for these ought to have their head examined. Or their wallet. May as well hand that over.

    I have my opinion, you have yours. Spend all you want. It is clearly such a niche product anyhow. However PXG has collectively dragged the market pricing UP across the board that grinds my gears. TM releasing a $1700 set should alarm anyone.

    I think you could also argue they dragged the quality up as well. People aren’t all of a sudden paying $1700 for a set that would’ve otherwise been $900 in the absence of PXG.

    650 for a club and people get a bit upset. But many people have no problem paying 650 and upwards of thousands for one putter?

    We don’t need a set of 7-8 putters to play a round. We also spend $7-$800 on a new driver with an up charge shaft, but again, just need one.
    $650 for an iron that does nothing more than any other is ridiculous. If someone has the coin and wants em, cool, no way For me. All they have done is drag the price of equipment up

    Their idiocy, PXG and the people willing to pay such inflated prices, is driving the market through the roof so it perfectly normal and expected for people to comment. Its their money but that doesn't mean they get a pass on negative comments.

    Do you go out and pound your driver against the ground several thousand times?
