PXG 0311 Irons Vs. PXG 0211 Comparison And Review
The PXG brand of golf clubs have become something of a boutique items. They tend to be pricey but well worth the price when it comes to performance. The only problems is: how do you decide which PXG irons to buy?
PXG is a brand known for performance. They usually aren’t for the feint of heart – meaning beginners. With the 0211 irons, PXG seeks to make their clubs more accessible to both golfers on a budget and beginners.
The 0311’s on the other hand are more your traditional PXG irons. They feature a 5 times forged design that low and mid handicappers will love. They are also loaded with performance features that the company promises will give a little bit of everything to the player.
PXG 0311 Irons Overview
Lots of construction innovations went into the making of the PXG 0311 irons. They are a premium set of irons made for players with discerning tastes.
The PXG 0311 irons are certainly impressive. You usually hear of a milled face but the backs of these irons have also been milled. Why? To create a thinner wall to help keep weight down more than forging alone could.
There is also a weight behind each of these clubs placed near the CG to help with swing comfort and distance. However, it should be noted that these weights can’t be adjusted after a fitting.
PXG 0211 Irons Overview
The 0211 irons were designed after the basic blueprint of the 0311 irons. They have some of the same features but were made to be more forgiving and accessible to new players.
The 0211 irons have one feature that we found to be very unique. The top edge of the head has a bit of an angle that moves away from the face, essentially angling the crown. PXG did this to position the CG towards the center of the face.
This does a moderately good job of increasing MOI and forgiveness. What does a bit more is the 360 degree undercut which increases flex across more areas of the face.
