Undergoing a Full PXG Fitting Experience - Irons, Drivers, Woods

By: | Tue 21 May 2024

If you have been regularly watching Golfshake's Equipment Expert, Ryan Rastall, on YouTube or this website, then you'll know that our resident PGA Professional is a strong advocate for encouraging golfers to be custom-fitted for their clubs.

Therefore, it was only logical that Ryan practiced what he preached, so he recently visited Rudding Park in Harrogate, where he underwent a full PXG Fitting Experience and tested out both the PXG 317T irons and GEN6 irons, before moving to the Black Ops range of drivers and fairway woods.

It was a great opportunity for Ryan to get his hands on these clubs, allowing him to share insights behind their technology and performance, in addition to offering a look at what is discussed and reviewed when you are fitted for new gear.

You can watch the video at the bottom of this page or directly on YouTube, but first, it's time to provide a little more information behind what you're about to see.

Who Are PXG?

It's now been a decade since PXG was founded by Vietnam War veteran and billionaire entrepreneur, Bob Parson, who had the ambition to create better golf equipment, with the company being based in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Since then, we have seen the likes of Ryan Moore, Lydia Ko and Celine Boutier use PXG clubs in the professional game, with custom fitting being a key part of the process, ensuring that golfers have the drivers, woods, hybrids, wedges and putters that have been specifically tailored for their game.

PXG 317T & GEN6 Irons 

PXG Irons

The 317 Tour Irons offer a small, workable head that makes it easier for better golfers to control the clubface, while greater stability and increased spin rate was achieved by the deployment of S COR material. Skilled players will enjoy the distance control benefits of the thin face hollow-bodied construction of these irons, with the sound and feel of the clubs being another standout feature.

Alternatively, PXG's 0311 P GEN6 Irons are claimed to be the longest and most forgiving irons that the manufacturer has released yet. This has been made possible as they were engineered with a patented core material, with its striking head design and Precision Weighting Technology offering a delectable balance between a soft feel, enhanced distance and welcomed forgiveness.

PXG Black Ops Drivers & Woods

PXG Drivers

But what about the driver? The Black Ops has been created to help all golfers drive it farther, higher, and with more accuracy and consistency than ever before. That sounds pretty good to us, but how was that realistic? Well, PXG has declared that its AMF Technology and use of Titanium Alloy has heightened the performance of this driver, with its carbon fibre crown and sole being optimised to allow for more efficient weight distribution.

When it comes to the fairway woods, the main takeaway is the distinctive, low profile of the club, which showcases a flat sole and squared face design. These are reported to be easy to launch, meaning that golfers can enjoy maximum distance off the tee or the turf aligned with an attractive sound and feel.
