The Verdict: Driver designers love carbon-fiber crowns. The lightweight material allows a low center of gravity and more stability on off-center hits. But the team at PXG wanted more, so it selectively raised and thickened its carbon-fiber crown. The goal is to stiffen the structure and redirect energy back to the flexing face for distance. There are two options: The adjustable and compact 0811 X has nine sole weights to optimize trajectory. It also emphasizes low spin and high speed for better players. The larger 0811 XF is designed for high launch and forgiveness that nears the USGA limit.
Loft: 0811 X: 9, 10.5, 12; 0811 XF: 9, 10.5, 12, 14 (both adjustable +/- 1.5 degrees)
