    Update on my PXG experience. My Gen 1 0811x driver shaft broke off at the hosel a few weeks ago. Since it was the Evenflow Blue shaft, I wasn't sure if PXG would warranty it. To my surprise they did warranty it, and are mailing a new shaft and adapter.

    That was the good.........now for the bad. After several rounds with my 0211 irons I noticed patterns forming. Certain irons seemed to always come up short no matter how well I hit them. So I took my 0211's to another club fitter to check the length of my irons. The lengths were all over the place. some were 1/4" short from standard, others were 1/2" short, and one club was even 3/4" short. Likely because of the bad lengths, not one of the irons was to the ordered swing-weight. To make matters even worse, the lofts and lies were all over the place too. When I contacted PXG they did say that they would make them right. But the estimated turn around of 2 1/2 weeks just does not work for me. I already waited 2 weeks when I bought the clubs, and I generally play 2 to 3 times a week, so I do not want to be without my clubs for that long. So rather than send my clubs in for 2+ weeks, then get them back with the horrible PXG grips and have to re-grip them again, I just decided to have someone else fix everything so that I can get back on the course.

    I was drinking the PXG cool-aid at first, but now I wonder if this is related to the 0211's and the high demand they had early this summer, or if it falls to some of the 0311 lineup too.

    It is an issue with the 0311's, as well. I had an eerily similar situation with the 0311's I ordered recently. The clubs played ok but something was off. I measured them and found my 6 and 7 iron were the same size, and all my clubs after the 7 iron were shorter than they should have been. None of the clubs were to the specs they were supposed to be built. However, I sent everything back and about 10 days later I received a new set that was exactly to spec. Moreover, they sent me back the original shafts, too, which I thought was a nice touch. But, given how PXG touts its quality, I was frustrated and surprised that it took them two chances to get my clubs right.

    I had similar issues when I first got my 0311’s. Lofts and length off on some. Sent those back and received in about 2 weeks but when I got them back they forgot to soft step the replacements. Took almost another 2 weeks. That being said, no matter what manufacturer you go with, you should always get lies/lofts/lengths checked because I’ve seen this issue with all the other manufacturers.

    I wonder if that was the issue with the 0211's that I just returned. I just assumed that the quality would be top notch. Although I hit the 4 and 5 irons well, I found that a lot of what I thought were well hit shots with the shorter irons would come up short. I did not have them checked out to see if the lofts and lengths were on. After about a dozen rounds, I was just not hitting as many quality shots as I was with my old irons so I returned them within the 30 day window.

    It might have been, and this seems to be a wide spread problem. Last night, my golf buddy down the street measured his after I told him about my issues, and while his set was more consistent throughout, they were still all about 1/2" under standard length.

    Keep in mind that PXG measures length the way that the USGA does using a 60* plate. If you take an iron that the USGA measures at say 37" and go put it on a ruler from Mitchell it will measure significantly shorter. This is why you will often see complaints that PXG clubs are short.

    Based on my 7i it was spot on and measured same as my Z565 7i. My issue was the 1/2” or 5/8” (long irons) increments were off on some of the irons. So, I had larger and smaller gaps between irons. For example.....7i = 37, 8i = 36 3/4, 9i = 36. Then factor in lofts that are 1-3* off makes for big gapping issues.

    Ain't that the truth? However, in PXG's defense, once clubs are to spec, they are amazing. But, it is disappointing that a company that sells itself as being of the highest quality can't seem to get the details right the first time.

    I had the 0311t for a while in 2018 and the the 0211’s last month. I had always played smaller headed irons, (716 cb and now S55’s), but the 0311t was large and the 0211 was larger. I had difficulty with the turf interaction and looking at the giant heads. I had no quality control problems and dealing with PXG was not stressful. Polite, professional and responsive.

    I sent the clubs back after 10 rounds. Since going back to my old irons, my index has dropped dramatically. Moral of the story, you must demo on real grass.

    Waiting on delivery of some 0211's I purchased off a member. Never seen or hit one in person but most of the reviews have been positive and the fair price of these at the moment was helpful in me making my decision to purchase. Never thought I would see a PXG pro playing the 0211's never mind Pat Perez. The 0211's in black look impressive.

    The performance of the 0211's are great as long as PXG does not completely screw up the specs like they did on mine. But now that I finally got mine to the specs I was fit into, I have no complaints with the performance. And they are definitely one of, if not the very best feeling cast iron I have ever hit.

    Like other's have said it's funny how a company selling premium priced gear can't take the time to properly double check the specs before shipping them out. Glad it worked out in the end for you, will definatly get mine checked before hitting them. That is reassuring news hearing they are one of the best feeling cast irons you have ever hit. That's not the first time iv'e heard the 0211's getting positive reviews on feel, looks like an all around great set of irons. Pat fn Perez just made my day though.

    The 0211’s feel great. Pured strikes feel totally powerful. They feel significantly better than 790’s to me and my srixon z545’s feel marginally better.

    Getting pumped waiting on the arrival of my set, love hearing positive reviews from real 0211 owners. Your saying the Z545's feel better? I had a 545 4 iron at one time, combo set of 545/765/965. Those were great feeling irons, thought the 545 feeling was good but not 765/965. good for obvious reasons. Great feel with some GI is what made me want to try the 0211's, I was tired of waiting for Ping to come up with something in between the i210's and the 410's, thought the 0211's would be close in that regard.

    The other day I had an opportunity to try a PXG 0211 7I in my local indoor golf range. The pro shop fits PXG. I've been reading up about PXG and the 0211 for a month or so now. To my eye, they are a really nice looking club! I play 2017 P790 with DG105 Stiff shafts which I really enjoy. So, we set up the 0211 with a DG105 Stiff VSS shaft and I hit both irons back to back. Honestly , I was a little disappointed that the 0211's were not "better". Realistically , there was no discernible difference. The 0211's possible felt a little softer but I really think that was the dampening in the shaft(2019 P790 felt like that as well). One thing for certain, I thought the P790 looked better at address being a little smaller.
    Even though I have never seen a set of PXG clubs at any of the courses I play , I think its a solid brand and I like the "edge" to it. I would be more tempted if the Hero's program was available in my country. The 0211's are a great looking club and with the correct fitting it would perform superbly!

    Yup. The srixons were marginally better feeling. Not leaps and bounds. Obviously a lot of this is subjective between each golfer but I enjoy my 0211’s a lot.

    My Stenson Legacy Blacks are King in my feel department, we shall see how the 0211's compare. Totally different iron make up but we know what we like feel wise. Had some 0311 first generations for a short time, they were pretty good feel wise, but I had way too much stuff and just said **** it all and sold off most of the hoard. Slowly creeping back up. 545 full set maybe on order next:)

    Love my 0211's...not as soft as the gen 1 or 2's, but being cast they take wear terrifically...always thought the gen 1 and 2s looked worn pretty quickly

    Talks to his neighbor "The Vet" and finds out he bought the same club for $95!

    "Dude" says...WTF?

    "Dude talks to his new buddy "The Vet" and tells him he would like him to order a full set for him, and he will give him an extra "Franklin" for doing so...."The Vet" says....done!

    Two happy campers on Veterans Day.... :D

    🍎 to 🍏 comparison but my Gen1 0311X driving iron feels much softer than the 0211, despite what the marketing department says. Don’t get me wrong the 0211 feels great. Way better than any cast club that I’ve ever hit and nearly as good as most forged offerings.

    Check the used market for 0211 irons, Gen1 drivers and putters. I’m sure more than a few vets made a “Franklin” or ten. More power to them, they earned it.

    I had the 0311t for a while in 2018 and the the 0211’s last month. I had always played smaller headed irons, (716 cb and now S55’s), but the 0311t was large and the 0211 was larger. I had difficulty with the turf interaction and looking at the giant heads. I had no quality control problems and dealing with PXG was not stressful. Polite, professional and responsive.

    I sent the clubs back after 10 rounds. Since going back to my old irons, my index has dropped dramatically. Moral of the story, you must demo on real grass.

    Prob explains the recent layoffs prob were clubfitters

    Not much talk about the shafts on these irons. I'm thinking about the 460 Recoils. Have a three wood with that shaft and it's my favorite club. Thoughts??

    You absolutely have to try the Mitsubishi MMT.

    Exact same experience. Figured I'd give these irons a try when PXG had the free driver and $100 putter deal in late summer. Coming from Apex Pro / Dot / MB split set I could not get comfortable with the very large 0211 club heads and offset in the mid and long irons. There was also a noticeable difference in turf interaction, with shots from the rough being considerably worse with the 0211. 0211 felt very good for a cast club and were quite long, but not for me.

    @dxdgenert, Thanks, I was speaking to the fitter on the phone and he said the same thing. Have been playnig the ping zz lite shafts almost my whole life, 30+ years, and he said the MMT would be a good transition.

    Search this forum for Mitsubishi MMT review and you’ll find a trove of information in another thread. Good luck!

    You have quite the Callaway combo set going. I just picked up a set of the Dot's off a member, nice looking set of irons. Winter is here so I was only able to hit a few buckets of range balls, so far so good. I snagged a set of 2011's off another member, waiting on delivery. Going to be a long winter waiting for some grass to hit from. What are your finding's on the dot's?
