Firstly, graphite shafts are becoming ever-more popular with golfers both in the amateur and professional game. Apart from their gorgeous looks, they inevitably yield extra yardage due to the lightweight construction. Lighter shafts equal greater swing swings, so those extra yards are made possible. Graphite shafts are especially beneficial for senior golfers and players who have lost distance for a number of reasons.
The all-new PXG 0311 XP graphite shafted irons are mean looking and backed up by PXG's industry leading engineering. The new PXG 0311 XP irons come with outstanding performance and forgiveness out of this world. With a new patented core material, breakthrough head design and expert weight technology to give you everything you could wish for. With a significant amount of offset at the address position, these irons have been designed, engineered, and built to give off-centre forgiveness we dream about. The benchmark for all other game-improvement irons are right here in this set. These are designed for any level of golfer who seeks maximum forgiveness coupled with a confidence-inspiring head shaping.
Every iron is 5x forged from 8620 soft carbon steel, a tight grain is achieved for the strength and to significantly prolong the life of the grooves. The appearance and feel is also very noticeable will this forged process. The irons come in a choice of two lovely finishes, both the chrome or Xtreme dark option look premium and classy. The Xtreme diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating creates a hard, graphite-like carbon-based coating that significantly extends the lifespan of the club. DLC is a premium three-layer process that includes a chromium base, carbon-chrome midlayer and high carbon top layer. This ultimate wear-resistance and gorgeous look will most certainly be appreciated across the board.
Precision weighting technology allows the one heavyweight located in the rear of the clubhead to be removed and replaced by others of differing weights to fully experiment with head configurations during a personal fitting. XCOR2 technology is many years in the making, resulting in extreme face deflection and monumental ball speeds. This polymer core material is designed specifically for the new Gen5 irons, extremely lightweight to reduce the mass of the core. Weight is positioned low and to the perimeter of the backside of the club, dramatically increasing the moment of inertia and forgiveness. When the ultra-thin face technology is factored in, you get an outstanding club that is hard to beat.
0311 Gen5 irons undergo a precise robotic polishing process, this creates an extremely tight manufacturing process that gives consistent sole and face perimeter geometry. Robotic laser welding reduced the heat-affected zone and gives high strength and exacting attachment method.
Just behind the face is a U-shaped corridor that is built into the inner surface of the face. This power channel technology increases deflection and bend in the top sector of the face. The sound and feel is exquisite as you would expect from PXG, nothing quite sounds and feels like a PXG iron.
