    Yes yes it does lol

    0211 are more affordable now than any current iron offering from major 4. Of these were $195 each I probably wouldn’t have hit them. But they are nice sticks and hope they work out well for me.

    I have the new gen3 models and they are simply fantastic. I thought of buying the gen2's because of the price but the technology and feel won out.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Just an update.

    The lofts are almost identical to my older Pings, but the ball flight is higher and total distance about 1/2 club longer. At address behind the ball, they look very similar to my Pings and I was very comfortable hitting them. I really like the longer clubs, but for some reason not so much the Gap wedge. Maybe I need some more time with it. The set looks and works well with my Ping Glide 3 wedges and I may slot in the 50* wedge for the Gap wedge if things don't work out. They "feel" softer than the Pings, but don't feel like a forged club. I still have 28 days to figure out if they will stay, but the inaugural outing with a new set of irons was good.

    Are they worth the discounted price? Definitely, Yes. Would I have purchased them for the original, full price? Probably not.

    What shafts were in your G irons and in 0211? Sounds like a pretty good improvement, more height and 1/2 club distance.

    it’s gonna be a long 4 weeks waiting for mine 😩

    I'll add to that. These are the same people who complain about the prices of golf equipment, the price of golf balls going to $5 each, (CDN) drivers going from $300 to $400 to $600, so a supposed (haven't tried it yet) quality product comes out at a favourable reduced price (we still don't know the reason, do we?) and instead of supporting that they just complain again.


    I have Google searched for hours and there is very little on the internet on these. This thread, the thread on sandtrap that says to go to this thread, a few video reviews from the average golfer, who will be a PXG fanboy for life after getting a trip from Parsons to Scottsdale, so he is now biased. And, is there anything else?

    edit:found this one too: probably posted further back but not going to check :)

    edit II: I really like this guys honesty: "I can't tell if this is forged or cast, so how would the public know? It is like putting a ProV1 or a TP5 down blind; I couldn't tell the difference, and this is supposed to be my job to tell the difference"


    He sure hits a sweet golf shot though :)

    I couldn’t find anymore info then you did online. It’s hard to believe actually. Clubs feel great. Much better than other cast clubs I’ve hit.

    Another round with the 0211's, still getting use to them. Hitting them more in the middle after the lie adjustment, but something is still a little "off" compared to my ie1's. Maybe the shaft? elevate 95 stiff in the 0211's, and modus 105 stiff in the ie1's. pxg did not have the modus 105 stiff in stock at the time. or I would of ordered them with it. So, I bought a modus 105 shaft to put in the 0211 7 iron to see if it makes a difference. Installing it this week. That way, a more apples to apples comparison to see which set goes in the bag.

    It might be because the shafts get lighter as the iron gets shorter. Pings use constant weight taper tip shafts, PXG uses parallel tip Elevate shafts.

    I’m not getting along with my set either. I’m not sure if it’s the shaft weight or not, but I don’t think I want to reshaft the whole set.

    Same here. That's why i picked up a modus tapered cheap off ebay, so if my experiment does't work im not out much money. If it does work, I only got the 6,7,8,9 in the 0211's so won't be so bad either.

    I’m in that same boat. The swingweight and shafts have demolished my swing and tempo that was fine before i got them. Can’t even decide if I like them or not untilI fix the damage they caused and I don’t want to throw more and more money at them just to find out I don’t like them.

    So far I actually am liking the 0211's. I think that where these irons shine is feel, consistency and a fair dose of forgiveness. The one thing I am finding, is that if you strike the ball low on the fact at all.. they are not going to get the ball up very high. For this reason alone I did swap out the 0211 4 iron for a ZU85. The ZU85 gets the ball up much easier from any lie. That said, other than that one thing, I do find the 0211's to feel great and be forgiving and straight. Overall I'd say the distance I am getting is acceptable but not necessarily outstanding. The dispersion however is pretty tight for me both left to right and front to back. So while I would not say that exceptional length is a really a strong suit for them, consistency is. As said too they are pretty forgiving across the face so slight misses towards the heel or toe are not punished very much at all. Swing wise I did have to make a bit of adjustment at first with the 0211's which was basically to feel like I was swinging out much more than usual. I do not know whether to attribute this to the heads, the swing weight or the i95 shafts but it was something that I took notice of for sure.

    Completely agree. I was not swinging well with them for the first few rounds. I put them on my scale, C9.

    I put some lead tape on them, but I just am not hitting them well.

    During my fitting I tried a number of lightweight shafts. The fitter thought that the Elevate 95 stiffs gave me the best numbers. I liked the regular flex better for the feel. I think they also gave me a higher launch and peak height. I’m at 80-82 for 7 iron swing speed.

    Yep like I said a couple pages back, they come in lighter than most women’s clubs. Even the 0311x I ordered came in at c9. You just can’t get any feel from a club that light.

    Just finished my 3rd round with the 0211s. came from G700s. like night and day difference. have reg flex in both. i actually like the lighter feel. of course the 0211s are much smaller than the G700s too. the big difference I've noticed is the dispersion has been much tighter with the pxgs. just put the G700s up for sale.

    i didn’t mind light swing weight during the fitting. Had my guy measure it. Was C9. Played Eye 2 at C9 for years and it never bothered me.

    I don’t know what mine weigh but their lighter than the Maltby DBMs in the backup bag. I like the lighter weight and can still feel the head in my swing. I’ve been working on smoothing out my tempo so lighter has been better for me.

    Reading a lot of posts in this thread from people who have received their PXG irons and found the swing weight too light. Is PXG not capable of building an iron set with a sub 100g shaft that swing weights in the D1 range?

    I imagine they could if you specify that when you order. I got mine from the bay when my order was delayed.

    My fitter did not specify a swing weight, so my set probably would have been C9 as well.

    I recall that my set of 0211 irons from PXG with TT Elevate 95 stiff shafts came in right at D1. Now, I had requested D2 if possible, and they did not achieve that (or perhaps even try to achieve that). I think it is pretty safe to say that especially with the 0211 irons (which don’t have the little PXG weights), PXG will not do much to adjust SW. But at least with certain sub-100g shafts, they do achieve the stock D1 SW. YMMV.

    And all of that said, I have lead tape on some Callaway, Ping and TM irons in my stable, so fine-tuning SW after purchase is not just a PXG thing.

    I went with the standard graphite shafts they are offering. I switched to graphite with the Pings and my elbows thank me for it. As for the swing weight, I’m now use to lighter clubs. I think they come in at C10-D0, but haven’t had them measured.

    Played another round yesterday and still think they are a keeper, except the Gap wedge. Still undecided on that club.

    Purchased a set of the 0211s with the MMT shaft. I was surprised that four out of five irons measured out of spec with what I ordered.

    Once adjusted, these are the best irons (for me) than I've experienced in many years.

    I'm coming from PING G710s and the head size, offset, thinner sole, and sound/feel of the 0211s are much appreciated. I think they're every bit as forgiving as the PING SGI clubs. And the G710s have a loud, percussive sound that hurt my ears on impact.

    At $95 per club, the 0211s with the MMT graphite shaft offer tremendous value. Five weeks from order to my doorstep.

    Well I think the 0211 experiment is over. Took the newly shafted 0211 7 iron with the the modus 105 to the range to hit against my i e1's i 7 iron, I have been playing for 2 1/2 years, same shaft. The 0211's were a little better with the modus, but was hitting the i e1's soo much better, and honestly, to me, the i e1's feel softer, longer, and more consistent. I do feel alot of it is a swing weight issue with the 0211's. I thought the slightly heavier modus might have helped more. Never should have doubted the ping's in the first place. I have played some of my best iron games with them. But that's what happens when your a club ho!!

    I would think the difference with the modus would have made the swing weight worse and not better, unless you weighted it. Did you use those proprietary ferrules when you re-shafted? I’m thinking about pulling mine apart and weighting them.
