Much of the golf game is about feeling. This is true not only in terms of performance but also the emotional response to a perfectly neat shot. The feeling you get from reaching the sweet spot and looking up for immaculate viewing Golf Shooting towards the target is exciting and that’s what I’ve been struggling with a lot since PXG Gen 4 Clubs in the bag.
While it’s still fairly early in Golf season, I’ve been able to play six rounds and several practice sessions with a launch screen testing the new sticks and discover some performance upgrades that produce a strong chord of confidence.
First, in 0311 Gen 4 irons, the brand uses a new, specially formulated XCOR polymer to reinforce an extremely thin flexible steel face with a diameter of 1.5 mm. The material is soft and flexible, but it does not absorb energy, which allows for faster ball speeds and greater distance compared to previous generations. This new polymer also looks different (in a good way) on impact.
More distance is wonderful. It looks like I’m getting another 4 to 6 yards from full iron shots and well-tuned, excellent verification of greens with a short and medium iron, plus a little extra tolerance on the bad guys compared to the 3rd generation. I really like the Gen 4 irons is the new central weight. The PXG has reduced the number of its distinct visible screw weights at the back of the club head from nine to five – and not just for Dolly Parton. One of these weights is large and variable.
During my session, the PXG and I experimented with a few different weights in the head of the racquet, and found more consistency than the heaviest 18g. Some players might gain speed with a lighter club head, but what I noticed was that the heavyweight added some feel to where the club head was at the top. swing. As someone who can split a little at the top and spin excessively, it allowed me to better perceive where my hands are and move the transition to the downside before I go too far.
Adding weight to the club head is not a new technique; It is typically performed with lead tape for elite players who use blade-shaped irons in the back of a maker’s carriage. But PXG has added that extra customization for all skill levels – from professional to amateur – and it’s well worth the time and effort to find the right combination in custom makeup.
As with previous generations, PXG offers the Iron 0311 in three models T, or Tour Performance, which has a lower displacement (and is also more applicable); XP, for Xtreme performance with maximum tolerance; P is for the player who is in the middle.
The new Gen 4 driver also features several new technologies. The body and face are both made of high-strength titanium, while a large portion of the crown is made of aluminum vapor-reinforced carbon fiber. If you cut the club head open, you would find honeycomb thermoplastic urethane inside the sole, giving the club a great sound and feel.
In the course, the new driver can be compared in terms of distance with his previous players. The cool stain isn’t exactly hot, but it’s radically straighter and more uniform thanks to dedicated formulation. It is much easier to equal or better from 10 feet back and into the waterway compared to coarse or coarse trees.
The driver comes in three models, XF (maximum tolerance), X (combination of tolerance and distance) and XT (smaller head for overdrive).
Fairway Woods and Hybrid
As with the driver, the new drivetrain and hybrids on the PXG also use vapor-reinforced aluminum carbon fiber at the crown, but the bodies and faces are made of steel. Both Fairway woods and hybrids have larger faces (longer on woods and taller in hybrids) with customizable weighting for drawing and fading bias.
These two clubs were where I saw the biggest gains in distance. During installation I picked up a dozen yards with three hybrids and 20 plus when ripping three woods. These are shocking numbers. On the a path, This makes par-5 tools long within my second shot range and makes decisions to undo dangerous water or pass-through shelters with ease.
0341 X lumber comes in loft sizes of 13, 15, 18, 21 degrees, 17, 19, 22, 25 and 28 degrees in the 0317 X hybrids.
