Makers of luxury automobiles often create more affordable versions to extend their reach to a different audience. PXG is adopting the golf-equipment version of that strategy with its 0211 line. Immediately noticeable is the absence of rivet-looking weights on the clubhead that have been a design feature of the company’s irons since its inception. In creating the new 0211, PXG relied on technologies from the company’s Gen3, including a hollow body filled with a soft polymer towards the back of the clubhead that creates a strong rebound at impact. The amount of soft polymer progressively decreases from the long irons to the short irons as the need for ball speed becomes less important in the scoring clubs. A firmer polymer behind the thin face maintains structural integrity. Although some companies use toe weights to move the centre of gravity closer to the centre of the face, in this iron that is achieved by modifying the upper back surface: removing mass from the heel side and repositioning it to the toe side. The irons in this set boast lofts that are 3 degrees stronger than on the original 0211, so expect a slightly lower launch with less spin.

“The thin topline invokes a sense you’re ready to stripe the ball inches from the cup. The feel is top-tier. You don’t feel the mis-hits.”
