PXG 0811 Vs. Titleist TSi3 Driver Comparison Overview
Being able to adjust on the fly is important to a lot of mid to low handicap players. So finding a driver that can keep up with you can be a challenge. In our experience, some drivers with a lot of adjustability features are too gimmicky.
In other words, they don’t help with real-time performance when you need it most. Today we are going to be taking a look at two drivers that promise maximum versatility. Do they deliver? Which is all gimmick and which provides actual substance? Find out in the following comparison overview.
PXG 0811 Driver Overview
The PXG 0811 driver features 16 weights that can be adjusted to hone in the perfect CG for your game.
It also comes with an adjustable hosel that can increase/decrease loft by 1.5 degrees. Our only gripe with this is that half the weights are titanium which is extremely light and doesn’t make much of a difference at all.
In the end though, all this meant was that it took more time to find the perfect weight combination than it did with the Titleist TSi3 driver. The titanium alloy face of this driver felt nice and was producing impressive ball speeds off the tee.
We were able to get a max distance of 276 yards from this driver which was nice – but certainly didn’t make it the longest driver we ever tested. The 0811 family also features the 0811X which has 10 interchangeable weights and is more geared to producing low spin off the tee.
Titleist TSi3 Driver Overview
The TSi3 is ready to go when you are. It also has an adjustable weight that slides into 5 different draw positions.
At the end of the day, the Titleist TSi3 driver doesn’t provide the vast array of CG options that the PXG 0811 driver does. However, we found that we really didn’t need all that super-fine tuning.
We found the TSi3 driver (with it’s 5 weight positions) to be more than enough for what we needed it for.
That all being said, the TSi3 driver was a bit less forgiving than the PXG 0811. The TS family also includes the TSi1 which produces very high launch angles but a bit too much spin for our liking, the TSi2 which is better for ball speed and the Tsi4 which had the lowest spin rates of the bunch.
The Tsi3 also features an adjustable hosel which helps with versatility. Overall, we felt that the TSi3 was a lot less gimmicky. The 5 weight positions are enough for any golfer and it is much easier to tune this driver than the PXG 0811 so you spend more time actually enjoying the game.
