PXG 0811X/LX

Our Review:

PXG uses thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) in its hollow-iron designs to allow for thinner faces. But thin faces aren't a problem in driver designs, so why use that material here? Simple: It weighs less than metal and performs an efficient function. Instead of using internal rib structures of metal that would position weight too high, engineers layered the TPE right above the sole to control sound and save weight. A carbon-composite crown saves more weight, so these are lower-spinning drivers than PXG's original 0811. Ten adjustable sole weights let you tweak direction and spin.

Player Comments
  • low
    I got that boring ball flight I love. I never felt like I was going to lose one high and spinny to the right.
  • mid
    The sound is consistent, muted, and the matte finish isn't distracting. Feels light but provides more power than you expect.
  • high
    Sounds like a gunshot with a silencer. You're confident it's going to go.
