PXG has launched its all-new 0311x driving iron, available in a standard chrome or stunning Xtreme Dark finish.

The driving iron has been designed by PXG to provide golfers with a low-spin, boring trajectory with plenty of versatility and added power.

PXG, whose iron sets run near the $3,000 mark and whose drivers start at $850, adds the 0311X driving iron to the company’s iron matrix for, as company founder Bob Parsons says in the product release, players looking for a long iron that “keeps the ball low and sends it far.”

GM REVIEW: PXG 0311 IRONS

Designed for a more penetrating flight than hybrids and fairway woods of a corresponding loft, the 0311X is available in five lofts that run from 24 degrees (5-iron) all the way down to 15 degrees (1-iron).

According to the company, several of PXG’s tour staff have put the 0311X in play, including Ryan Moore, James Hahn, Billy Horschel and Charl Schwartzel, although none are playing the 15-degree 1-iron.

Just like the 0311, 0311T and 0311XF irons, the PXG 0311X features a thin, high-strength HT 1770 steel face insert surrounded by a steel body. The PXG 0311X uses 8620 steel (the same steel used in the company’s milled wedges), while the other irons feature S25C.

A forged construction provides a soft feel at impact while an extremely thin clubface and thermoplastic elastomer behind it increase ball speed and overall distance.

To improve playability from all types of lies and turf conditions, the 0311X driving irons feature a wide sole and low CG, promoting easier launch and more forgiveness.

Fairly minimal offset allows for shotmaking and also makes these clubs equally effective from the fairway and the tee.

The PXG 0311X will sell for $350 per club in the chrome finish and $450 per club in the company’s Xtreme Dark finish.
