As we all know PXG golf clubs are expensive. As a new PXG dealer, this is my opinion. I have not been able to get out a lot yet because living in Iowa the weather hasn’t cooperated for me to really get out to the range with my launch monitor and get good numbers. I was able to get out once and play in February and hit some of my demos.
Most everyone I have talked to tells me that the irons feel great and hit longer than they’re old irons, but the driver, they aren’t sure is any better.
Let’s talk the driver first. The PXG driver’s technology is a little different than most. First, they use 16 movable weights and an adjustable hosel, the clubfitter can fine tune your driver like never before seen. The various combinations enables the custom club fitter or golfer to hone their launch conditions for optimal ball flight. Research has proven that fine tuning head weight and swing weight is very important, yet highly underutilized,fitting attribute to optimize performance. That is why I fit you for your swing weight/MOI. Never been fitted for that before? Most golfers never have because only a very few custom club fitters know how. Of coarse the driver is legal with a COR of .830.
Let’s talk performance. I compared it to my driver, which is a TWGT 919, 11 degrees of loft, 44 1/2 inches long at a D3 swing weight. I have a Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki (stiff) shaft.I have right at 100 mph club head speed with a driver. Now, most of you have probably not heard of TWGT, but Tom Wishon makes one of the best drivers on the market and I personally have never found a driver better than the 919, and I have hit all the major brand drivers. The PXG driver was 45 inchs long, with the same shaft as my driver and a D3 1/2 swing weight. The driver felt great and the ball speed was the same as the 919, which I have never found with another driver. Then I put a Accra FX 250 M4 shaft in the PXG and the driver was scary good. I have never found another driver like this one.
OK, how about the irons. Again, I hit the TWGT 575 forged irons, which in my opinion is one of the best forged irons on the market. I have compared my irons to the Miura irons, which Miura are forged Perfection. They are not mass produced, they are all hand grind. Miura are the finest forged iron in the world. Tom Wishon has taken is forged irons one step farther by using CNC machining so that the weight, and center of gravity of the iron is exactly way he designed it to be, plus he uses a 5 step forging process that none of the big manufactures use. I have the Nippion NS Pro 1150 GS (stiff) steel shaft, 1/2 inch long in my irons.
