Arizona-based golf equipment company PXG has introduced its new PXG 0311XF iron collection. Featuring the company’s groundbreaking TPE Core Technology, the new game improvement irons offer xtreme forgiveness and a superior feel, while maintaining the irresistible look of a PXG blade.
In 2015, PXG made an indelible mark on the golf industry with the introduction of its revolutionary iron technology. The original PXG 0311 forged blades have a distinctive design, exceptional feel and unmatched performance. The new PXG 0311XF leverages the same materials and sophisticated manufacturing processes. The club head has a longer blade length, wider sole, and slightly larger profile to help inspire confidence at address and deliver xtreme forgiveness.
“The longer blade length and wider sole help increase the MOI and drive the CG back to create greater forgiveness and more dynamic loft at impact,” said PXG chief product officer Brad Schweigert. “As a result, the clubs are incredibly forgiving and deliver outstanding mis-hit performance.”
“We’d all love to hit the ball perfectly every time, but the truth is many of us don’t,” American businessman and PXG founder Bob Parsons said. “Most players struggle with imperfect swings and for some playing a blade can be intimidating. So, we engineered a game improvement iron that is even more forgiving than the original PXG 0311 irons and just as sexy. Trust me, forgiveness has never felt so good.”
PXG 0311XF irons are triple forged and feature an ultra-thin face coupled with a structural thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material. The patented technology combines to dampen vibrations and produce a more efficient energy transfer. The large, TPE-filled internal cavity promotes higher ball speeds and increased distance. High-density tungsten alloy weights situate mass for an optimal CG position, resulting in longer more consistent shots. Perimeter weighting also creates PXG’s signature look.
PXG 0311XF irons seamlessly integrate with the entire 0311 series, supporting complete and mixed set makeups. Even elite players with low handicaps may benefit from using a set that blends from PXG 0311XF irons to the original PXG 0311 or PXG 0311T mid and short irons.
“I love my PXG 0311XF 4-iron,” said 15-time worldwide champion Charl Schwartzel. “Off the tee I hit it 260 yards and when someone looks in my bag it blends perfectly with my 0311 irons. You would never know that it’s a game improvement club – and I like that.”
PXG now offers three collections engineered for golfers at every level of the game. The PXG 0311T (Tour Performance Collection) is for tour pros and the very best golfers. The PXG 0311T features a smaller more compact head and less offset. The PXG 0311 (Players Collection) is the company’s original iron and accommodates the widest range of golfing skill. It has a larger head and a bit more offset, providing forgiveness where you need it and performance where you want it.
All three iron collections are priced at $350 per club. The entire PXG 0311 series is available in Chrome and, for an additional $150 per iron, Xtreme Dark, a black Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coating.
