    And you know this because you have actually hit these on several occasions to have an honest basis of comparison?

    Played a few holes at my home club today. The 0211 feel great and they are very forgiving. I hit few pretty skanky and they didn't seem to get punished too much.

    Can you compare them to any model you have pla>

    Point me in the direction where I can get better performing irons at $105 each with a free driver.

    In my area, PXG has a a permanent stall on part of the range. It was very impressive. I tried the 0211 and 0311P Gen 2. Unfortunately, I hit the 0311P Gen 2 a lot better with Accra 90 stiff shafts. I tried the Gen 2 driver, but was making too many sloppy swings at that point to really test it, so did not buy that yet. Also got fitted for a Gen 2 Brandon putter and purchased that. Never got fitted for a putter before either.

    Probably spend about 2 hours with the fitter. Was a fun and impressive time!

    Also - to the poster above that says there are so many better options. There are lots of good clubs and I have hit most of them and these irons were the best for me and by quite a bit. So, your blanket statements don't apply to everyone... :)

    On -, @ljb1146 said:

    On -, @GFish I agree with all the above. I have never been fitted for clubs, always bought used stuff but now that i got lessons 6 months ago and more constant ball striking and scoring its time. What is there to expect from the PXG fitting? Did you do full bag? Obviously you did driver and irons. Im excited to go tomorrow, and after everything ive read do not see me not liking the clubs.

    How much are the 0211's per club through Hero's pricing?

    $105 per with stock shaft offering. $25 up charge for upgraded shafts.

    FWIW, PXG also offer upgraded shafts not listed on the website configurator as well. Upcharge for those shafts are at market rate and the 2-3 shafts I inquired about had 3-4 week build times due to the shafts being special ordered. From the sound of it, they could order whatever shaft you want.

    Thanks. Is it frowned upon to have a veteran buy them for you?

    I believe Heroes is open to immediate family members of veterans.

    I would say “yes” it is, or should be, frowned upon to buy a set for someone that is not a Veteran. Most Vets were taught honesty and integrity. I wouldn’t do it myself for anyone.

    Sorry, just saying.

    Seeing quite a few of the PXG 0211's on the bay. Wondering if some people are buying through hero's program & then flipping them to make some quick cash.

    Unfortunately I think that is the case. Especially with the 0211s because the Heroes price is over 40% lower. With the 0311 there is not such a drastic difference in hero pricing, so the risk of trying to flip them is much greater.

    I have also seen a ton of "brand new" Gen 1 0811x drivers for sale lately as well, which is probably people selling the free driver to recoup some of the cost of the irons. Since the driver was offered free, it is a little more of a grey area. I tried mine and loved it, but if it had not worked for me, I probably would have sold it and put the proceeds towards the Gen 2. But there are probably several people that purchased the 0211 irons for the free driver and discounted putter just to sell all of it.

    At the risk of sounding judgmental I think it is in poor taste to try and profit off of the goodwill of PXG. Anyone who has listened to Bob Parsons talk about his appreciation for everything the Marines taught him will understand why he built the heroes program. I may eventually trade my 0211’s or give them to someone new to the game but I will be damned if I will sell them on eBay, BST or any other site. I could understand giving the driver away but selling it is out of the question. That being said veterans are just people some are good some are bad. I have always believed in the adage that 10% bad apples exist in every society.

    Anyone thinks it is goodwill is very naive, at least.
    The guy knows how to make business and surely they sell those sticks with still some margin (and they cleared all the leftovers as well). Maybe they are increasing the market shares in order to sell the company to another OEM or to an investor group. I would not be overly surprised. It should be quite an expensive toy and the high price point doesn't allow them make huge volumes and return of the costs and initial investment.

    Parsons is a billionaire and avid golfer and golf equipment ho he doesnt need to sell company. If he breaks even who cares to him? If they were in trouble they wouldnt be coming out with new product this year like gen2 putters (which are great) and 0211 irons. I prob wouldnt have given driver away with purchase of irons maybe $100 and not offer a $175-200 handcrafted shaft with it but they do. Think what you want about Dr Bob but man is a true American success story and loves golf what more can you want??? Watch the interview of him on this website with Johnny Wunder.

    Unless you can get the hero discount they’re overprice

    agreed, all of PXG is overpriced, but especially these clubs IMHO... But it is a great deal that they offer to veterans on their entry level set. I don't benefit from it at all, but makes me like them more as a company for doing it honestly.

    Maybe an argument on the Gen2 irons and the milled wedges being overpriced and Id agree. Driver only $25 more than a Taylor Made and Fairways and hybrids maybe slightly overpriced. Gen2 putters are better than any Scotty Ive had and are priced similiar. The 0211 irons at retail are priced little higher than comparable cast Ping and Titleist irons but also have more tech in them. So overall no not that overpriced. I also think PXG knows that prob half of Heroes purchases are prob for a friend or family member of a veteran. Theyre doing a great thing for vets and increasing market share while making some money. Not a bad business model.

    Back to the subject of the 0211’s, and away from Bob Parsons’ business practices, I’m returning the 0211’s. I just don’t see the benefits over the Gen 1’s and have actually replaced the 0211’s in my bag with my Gen 1’s. It’s hard to justify keeping them if they aren’t displacing my 0311’s. I already have a Gen 2 driver, so as nice as that was as a bonus, didn’t really add that much for me. I’m sure it has a lot to do with the MMT shafts, but kind of a crap shoot since I wasn’t getting properly fitted.

    I was told too uf you return the 0211s also have to return the free driver as well.

    Just got mine in the mail yesterday. Got the Elevate Tour shafts, hardstepped x1.. Recommended by the over the phone fitter I worked with. They look and feel great with a couple of swings inside before I got yelled at by my wife... Can't wait to get out and actually hit them. Already feel like a huge improvement from my Mizuno MP-15 set I got off eBay beginning of the season.
    Free driver was a plus as well. Evenflow white shaft which just looks amazing.

    As for the Hero Program: I did my fitting today. The Free Gen1 Driver, and the 95$ Gen1 putters are still available to those who are eligible for Hero Program. *also gen 1 driving irons are 95$.

    I worked with Blake at TPC Tampa. He was great, spent 2 hours with me. Definitely knew his ****. Spent his time, didnt rush and made the experience very enjoyable. At this moment I am 9hcp usually ranging from 8-10 hcp area. I get around a course normally 83-87 with occasional 90 and can get hot and shoot 76-80 here and there. Been playing Nike vapor fly pro irons that I purchased used from a buddy 3 years ago. Ironically Blake (the fitter) recommended standard lie angle (pxg specs) but that is .75 deg more flat than the Nikes I was playing. Also the Nikes were 3/4" longer shafts. As for the 0211 I felt they were great irons. 7i distanace 175-180 and more forgiving than my Nikes. He fit me for the Elevate tour shafts (the stock shafts). Blake did try multiple different shafts with me and the stock shafts produced the best numbers. I hit the 0211 better than the Nikes, better flight, better grouping, and feel was better. Also got fit for Gen 1 driving 2i, forget which shaft, stiff graphite something but that is on sale for 95$ as well! I play M4 driver now, but was never fit for it. Blake went through 8 different shafts with me for the Gen 1 driver. As soon as we put on the Alida NV blue I hit 2 balls and could tell this was much better and Blake immediately said "we found your shaft". Distance was similar to my M4, but my miss was much less. Ill probably have to toy with it on the range to see if it will take the place of my M4.

    Overall, with the hero discount it was a no brainer for me, especially with the free driver. If I was not eligible for the "hero" discount I probably would taken more time and hit a few more brands. But I liked the look and feel of the 0211s. I hit them noticeably better than the irons I have been playing for a few years. They do not look as "clunky" in person as they do in pictures I have seen. For someone who has not been fit before, it was as impressive experience. I am confident that the fitter knew what he was doing and was important to him that he did me right.

    Ended up getting 4-aw 0211s, gen1 driving iron and the free gen1 driver all for 1060$ after shipping and tax... hard to argue that deal. Excited to get them in a few weeks.

    So, if you for some reason you don't like the clubs, you have 30 days to send them back for refund? Whether purchased online or in person fitting. If so, that is really backing up your clubs!

    I did some light range testing with the 6 iron on Sunday before my round and I don't feel like the 0211 felt as good on the range as it did in the fitting. I wasn't too impressed with it on the range, but I must admit I didn't really have a thorough session with it either. Just hit about 15 or so balls with it before my round.

    At this point, I'm not confident enough in them to put them in play for a round, but I am planning to get back out to the range after work this week to give it a second go.

    Just saw the full set today at my club. Been hearing the stories about how big they were. I think they look great. Offset in the scoring clubs are ideal looki ng to me. I just bought some ping 3.o wedges and i would say that the wedge on the 0211 fits perfectly with it. Actually really surprised how good they look. The finish is fantastic. Heroes pricing as well. I guess we will see, but I am happier now that i have seen them in person and literally ordered them right after i saw them

    Not many clubs out there will feel good with range balls.

    I was not trying to compare it to the feel of other clubs, just to your previous experience during with the PXGs during a fitting. If you use a similar ball to what was used in the fitting then you should be able to at least re-create the feeling they had in the fitting.

    My G700s were some of the worst feeling clubs I have ever played when hitting hard range balls. But with a tour ball they were just middle of the road.

    It was probably a mad rush to get sets out into the wild to get organic marketing going. I'm surprised that there's not a lot of reviews/alternative marketing out there for the 0211's.

    Intrigued by the number ID for the new PXG irons.

    PXG owner Bob Parsons served in the Marine Corps. His early irons were designated as 0311 model, which is the military occupational specialty (MOS) code for infantry rifleman, the base of USMC.

    Now the follow-on irons are designated as 0211 model, the MOS code for basic intelligence analyst. So level with us,

    On -, @jjfcpa , did you have to pass any test to see if you were smart enuf to use 'em? ;) Just wondering...

    At least PXG will take custom fit clubs minus the restocking fee. And if they are "stock" there usually is no restocking fee. Callaway takes custom returns as well, but Taylormade, Srixon and Titleist will not take back custom fit clubs at all. Mizuno has to give special authorization prior to return on custom clubs.

    As for shipping, PXG refunds the outbound shipping, but the returnee is responsible for return postage. All of the other manufacturers do not refund outbound shipping charges, but do provide return shipping labels.

    So yeah, I guess PXG is being completely outrageous with their return policy and should be completely bashed for it.

    Still think it is a good deal. Not sure how many other club mfgs offer a 30 day play guarantee regardless of restocking fee. I never know how good clubs will be until I play with them a while. :)

    Amazing what people complain about. How many other companies are offering significant discounts for veterans and giving a free driver with purchase?

    Give people an inch, they want to take a mile. This is why we can't have nice things.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
