Is PXG equipment really that good?

Not according to myspygolf.com.  Their testing does not place PXG "best" in any category.

I really wanted  some  Gen 3 T's, loved the attention to detail but not the $450 price tag. I was disappointed after seeing the MGS test results. As I continued reading some more reviews I was impressed with Matt from Plug n golf's review.   He tests a lot of equipment and doesn't play any games in his reviews.  His gamers for last year were Ping Blueprints and Gen 3 T's. So They can't be to bad. I picked up some like new T's and will have a go myself come spring, really impressed of the look at address as I sit here dreaming of spring. PXG has dropped the price to $200 per iron, very attractive pricing at the moment.  Pay for used and get brand new, feel sorry for the poor fellas that dropped retail on these though now that they dropped the price by 55% ouch....

PXG needs a new motto.  I have one.  "Plenty that will do it as well.  But none that will cost you as much!"

PXG is not any better than the major OEMs, nor any worse.

If you have them, and like them, then, yes, they are that good.

Like previously mentioned, I like their hybrids and fairway woods because you can adjust 3 degrees flat without having to loft down. My miss is a hook so I definitely need hybrids and woods with a fade bias. Flatter lie angles + toe weights will definitely do that. So would I pay a little extra to get the adjustability that I'm looking for? Sure. Would I buy that club at a price cheaper than most OEMs at the moment? Duh.

This is all you need right here.

Boom.

I never liked the irons. Had the gen 1 players. Too chunky. Maybe my mistake by listening to the fitter and getting me into those instead of what i wanted the tours. My favorite iron to  this day is the Nike Vapor pro combo set. 
 

I will say the hybrid was really nice. I believe it was a Gen 2. I was blasting that thing.

Not better, not worse.  The high prices aren't worth it to me, but I had a full bag of PXG early on when their Hero's program started.  I really enjoyed their 0311T irons, though I didn't like the look of the screws and how they collected dirt/mud.

PXG has clearly changed their business model. Initially, it was based on superior quality/performance in exchange for higher prices. The market has proven that model to be false.

 

They couldn't sell enough at the higher price, and have been offering lower prices through several conduits for a few years now. With their current pricing, it seems they've given up on the original idea entirely. That doesn't really instill one with a lot of confidence in the company. 

 

It's impossible to know what might happen, but I'd be willing to wager $10 right now that in another three years, PXG will be a memory.

You do realize the owner has more money than most people should, right? It could bleed cash for a while if he wants it to.

As you can imagine, it probably took millions and millions of dollars to launch a new OEM company. From what I've read, PXG had to bake in some of those startups costs at the beginning to help increase their sustainability in the short term. And as more and more users become a part of the PXG ecosystem, their costs of manufacturing diminish according to their increased scalability which is why you're seeing their pricing come back down to earth. Of course their pricing fluctuations could be entirely related to supply/demand and artificially manipulating luxury perception, but I think simple economics would give some credibility to the former theory. This could have been their business model from inception rather than a pivot. And I'd be happy to take you on that $10 wager 🙂

I played the 0211’s for a good part of last season and previously played Pings for many years.  They are like a better feeling Ping.  Specs are very similar and with the price cuts and then resale on the used market they are very affordable.

 

Easier to reshaft than the Pings as you buy either the 0.355 taper tip ferrules or the 0.370 ferrules depending on your shaft of choice.

I own the proto x+ 

have hit several drivers in recent weeks. Bought a proto x+ 

while it is a good driver I don’t seem to think it’s “that much better” than anything else out there. Any opinions on this? 

 

The irons and wedges are really, really good.  The Gen 3 Ts are amazing irons.  Theyre not 2x better than the T100s, but they are really good.

The pricing has been high but it is coming down. The one thing you can say is other manufactures now are increasing the price. Normal irons were 899-999 now it’s 1299-1399. So it seems like other companies are catching up to the prices. But honestly. I think everyone can agree on one thing. The clubs are going further. The technology isn’t getting that much newer. They are just creating new terms and words to attract their new equipment into people’s hands. It’s sorta like the i phone. Every year people just upgrade for the same thing. Just a different shine.

Well said. For all we know they could be in the black right now and bob is just changing the model, releasing new clubs and slashing prices to keep people working and the economy  afloat. 

Or maybe they are taking advantage of the renewed interest in golf and exploiting it to their advantage. Who really knows?
 

But, at some point tho this is going to turn into a really hard sell, because the flip to a phased tech 1.0 1.1 etc approach, the same one everyone else has always been on is going to hurt them and brand loyalty down the line. 
You can’t tell me the proto FW came out today, and in April when the gen 4 that replaces it is exponentially better. 
So either you were deliberately sandbagging, or you’re lying. Either way you loose credibility. 
 

They could switch back to the old model and price point at any point with the hopes of having more people on the hook and a larger market share. But if the stuff they have released in the interim hasn’t performed, it will kill them.

Of course. If Bob wants to keep it going, he certainly can. I'm talking more about the consumer side. If no one is buying it, it doesn't matter a whole lot that he keeps trying to sell it. 

 

There is a lot of hubris in all that Bob Parsons does, and pride does cometh before the fall.

If he's got guys on tour willing to swing his sticks, I bet he will continue to sell clubs.

 

Not to stereotype, but I would love to see the number of sets sold that see less than a dozen rounds a year.

 

PXG makes a hell of a trophy set, if nothing else. Break those bad boys out twice a year for the company golf tournament. 🤣

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
