PXG 0811 X+ Prototype Round 1
My PXG 0811 X + Prototype was orders on May 6th, shipped Friday and arrived at my home via Fed X yesterday on Sunday just in time for a 7am tee time today. I chose the Riptide 60 6.0 CB shaft built to 45 inches.
here are my thoughts
1. I hit all but one fairway off the tee and my miss was in the first cut. Accuracy was superb!
2. Sound- similar to PXG Gen 2. Nice solid thwack. Very pleasing to the ear
3. Feel- great feeling. Not hard or harsh and much better feeling than the SIM it’s replacing. Ball jumped off the face like a rocket
4 Forgiveness- excellent. I hit a couple off the toe and they ended up in the center of the fairway
5. Ball flight. - nice mid high piercing flight. No ballooning. Roll out after hitting the ground. Did not mess with settings and played at 10.5 all round
6 Looks- really **** Similar to Gen 2 but not exactly the same The muted black crown just screams spank me Daddy
7 Distance - I was getting longer and more consistent drives than with my gamer - SiM 10.5 For me at age 63 I’ll take 270 off the tee all day any day
8 Shaft- Really loves the PX Riptide CB I orders it thinking I would not like it and would be using a Tensei White Pro that I have form my Gen 2 but the Riptide CB performed so well with such great feel and consistency I never tried the Tensei White And i May never have to
shot my personal best of the year today 76 I have been struggling with back issues and lack of playing due to the pandemic but it all came together today and in large part because I was keeping it in the center of the fairway
Bottom line! Two thumbs up and bye bye Sim!
