What we say...

The 0211 is PXG's 'affordable', super versatile fairway wood that targets everyone from 0-25 handicappers.

“Affordable” isn’t a word said very often by billionaire PXG owner Bob Parsons. But that’s what he asked for when he tasked his team of engineers to create a new range for 2021.

Parsons has built the PXG brand on a “designed without cost restriction” mantra, and it’s now well established as a serious option for golfers who don’t mind paying top dollar for brilliant products made from the finest materials (along with a very personal fitting session).

But Parsons – who built his fortune by selling domain names online – felt it was time to attract the eye of a whole new audience.

Until now PXG have been all about premium prices (they’ve made one iron at a “reasonable cost” before, and they were £1,400 a set). Their plan for 2021 is to upset the applecart and pitch the new 0211 family in at club golfers looking for alternatives to the likes of TaylorMade, Callaway and Ping.

The 0211 drivers, fairways and hybrids all have a hybrid crown, it means the highest raised section is created from carbon fibre. PXG say the idea removes inefficient mass from the highest point, which has real benefits on a stainless steel fairway as the heavier head material means the crown is typically eight times heavier (than the same crown made from titanium).

A new railed sole not only creates a low centre of gravity, high MOI design, but also strengthens the head to cut impact energy loss as well as improving sound and feel.

PXG say the 0211 fairway’s new rounded face, where there’s lots of heel and toe relief, is just as effective for a tour player as it will be for a beginner.

What you need to know about the PXG 0211 Fairway Wood

New head shape

Even though originally they were £425 a pop (they're now £215) we've loved the shape of PXG 0341 Gen2 fairway woods for a couple of years. PXG say the new 0211 has a new slightly larger profile to satisfy its target audience.

PXG say the larger profile and deeper face adds not just confidence at address but extra forgiveness too. Look straight on at the face and you'll see the face is very rounded with lots of heel and toe relief, the shaping makes the model effective for lots of players.

Railed sole     

Railed soles are nothing new when it comes to fairways and hybrids, but PXG say the 0211's encompassing feature helps stiffen the head with zero trade-offs. The rails contain plenty of strategic weighting, so they help increase MOI and create a low centre of gravity, but also contribute to improving sound and feel too.

When hitting from the turf the rails help protect against digging, improving turf interaction, but have absolutely no negative impact on getting shots airborne. 

The best of both worlds

Carbon crowns are absolutely nothing new when it comes to driver and fairway wood construction. But PXG's new dual steel and carbon fibre idea is different to anything else on the market.

PXG say the idea removes weight from the highest point of the head, and as carbon fibre is significantly lighter than steel it saves a decent amount of inefficient weight from high up in the head. The brand's Honeycomb TPE sole insert also soaks up vibration to ensure great sound and feel.

Same face material and forward weighting

PXG have carved out a cracking reputation for creating great feeling and sounding irons. So with a face material that's proven and accepted amongst players it makes a lot of sense to keep the same material (HT1770 stainless steel) for the new fairway wood faces too.

Hitting shots from the turf is a very different game to driving shots off a tee. So PXG say the 0211 fairway wood has forward sole weighting as players typically need a more forward CG when playing from the turf. The idea helps protect against distance zapping backspin and adds ball speed.

We love how the sole weight can also be switched in 2.5g increments to add 10g, or remove 7.5g to accommodate different shaft lengths and types. It's a model you won't find with most manufacturers.
