Titleist T400 Vs. PXG 0211 DC Irons Comparison Overview
The Titlist T400 irons and the PXG 0211 DC’s have very different features. The thing is; they were both designed to be forgiving.
The two manufacturers went about forgiveness in 2 different ways so we wanted to dissect these iron sets and see what made them tick.
Inn the following overview, you will learn only what you need to know about these irons to make an informed consumer decision.
Titleist T400 Irons Overview
The Titleist T400’s were design with a hollow body to allow the engineers to place weights in key areas of the head to optimize CG.
So what is the CG optimized for in the T400 irons? As far as we could tell, the CG is optimized for high launch angles. That’s what we were getting the most of with these irons. In close second was forgiveness.
Everyone knows that you can’t get any distance or accuracy if your shots miss the face. Titleist used an L-shaped face where the bottom essentially wraps into the sole. Indeed, we were getting decent ball speed on low-face shots thanks to this feature.
The CG is low and back-oriented in the long irons which was helping us launch the ball ridiculously high. However, while the T400’s launch high and are forgiving they don’t offer much in the way of workability.
PXG 0211 DC Irons Overview
The PXG 0211 DC irons had a nice feel to them thanks in part to the miraging steel face.
The miraging steel also made it easier to work both the long and short irons in this set. The PXG 0211 DC’s feature a layer of soft polymer in the head which, as far as we could tell, was helping to transfer more energy from the club to the ball.
In fact, we were getting slightly better ball speed and distance out of the PXG 0211 DC’s even though our launch angles were lower than those of the T400’s. The PXG 0211 DC’s were less forgiving on low-face shots but they still performed well on other types of mis-hits.
If you are looking for a set of irons that will help you launch the ball higher, the Titleist T400’s are the way to go. That’s pretty much the only thing they do better than the PXG 0211 DC irons though. The PXG’s played longer and afforded us more workability.
