Equipment Profile: New PXG 0311XF Irons Deliver ‘Xtreme Forgiveness’

Bob Parsons and his company, PXG, have an unconventional take on the golf equipment industry. And with every passing day it seems like they’re doing pretty well for themselves. Parsons Xtreme Golf is looking to further expand their customer base with the introduction of a wonderful line of PXG clubs for the high-handicapper.

At a time when every manufacturer is struggling, PXG seems to be doing well because they aren’t really fighting for the same customer. Their high-end clubs have certainly found a niche.

Earlier this week, PXG introduced a new line of game improvement irons, the PXG 0311XF. The XF literally stands for “extreme forgiveness.”

“We’d all love to hit the ball perfectly every time, but the truth is many of us don’t,” 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.”

"At #PXG, we care about one thing and one thing only – PERFORMANCE." -Bob Parsons

The PXG 0311XF features a longer blade length, wider sole, and slightly larger profile to help inspire confidence at address and deliver forgiveness. These characteristics increase the moment of inertia (MOI) and drive the center of gravity (CG) back to create greater forgiveness, and more dynamic loft at impact. These irons are extremely forgiving and deliver outstanding performance on mis-hits.

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 superior feel and maximizes forgiveness.

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.

With the introduction of the new PXG 0311XF irons, PXG now offers three sets of irons engineered for golfers at every level of the game. The PXG 0311T (Tour Performance Collection) is for tour pros. The PXG 0311 (Players Collection) is the company’s original iron, and accommodates the widest range of golfing skill. And now, for golfers who need, or want, the absolute in forgiveness, the company offers the PXG 0311XF.

PXG has already signed a handful of Tour professionals, including Zach Johnson, Charl Schwartzel, Ryan Moore and Billy Horschel. And with Nike shutting down their equipment business, we just have to wait and see as to how many Nike pros move over to PXG.

Pricing: Like all other PXG Irons, the PXG 0311XF costs $350 per club for a chrome finish. For and Xtreme Dark finish (a black Diamond-like Carbon coating), it would cost an additional $150 per iron.
