Parsons Xtreme Golf has been making a big noise in the golf equipment market.
The high end PXG 0311 and 0311T irons certainly impressed us and with players such as Charl Schwartzel and Zac Johnson among others putting them in the bag, PXG is not short of Tour endorsement.
The classic bladed look of the 0311 and 0311T hide a hollow construction with a high strength HT1770 steel face backed by a Thermoplastic Elastomer injected into the cavity to dampen vibration and produce a more efficient energy transfer.
We thought that the larger headed 0311 would be good for players with handicap into the mid teens, so what about players with deep pockets who love the clean lines and revolutionary weighting of the PXG irons, but need a little more help on the course?
Step forward the PXG 0311XF iron collection. Made from the same materials and manufacturing processes, these irons offer more help for players with a longer blade length, wider sole and slightly larger profile to help inspire confidence at address.
Brad Schweigert, PXG Chief Product Officer, explains how the design changes have made the PXG 0311XF iron more forgiving:
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. As a result the clubs are incredibly forgiving and deliver outstanding mis-hit performance.
As well as using the same construction as the rest of the 0311 family, the PXG 0311XF all feature the distinctive high-density tungsten alloy weights that optimise CG position for longer and more consistent shots.
This ensures that the PXG 0311XF fits seamlessly with the entire 0311 series to support complete and mixed set make-ups. PXG say that 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.
In fact Schwartzel plays a PXG 0311XF iron on Tour:
I love my PXG 0311XF 4-iron. 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.
The PXG 0311XF irons are available in Chrome and an Xtreme Dark black Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coating.
