    Pricing in todays market is weird. By making PXG clubs a premium he sets himself apart and becomes more desirable. Even if they perform 99.9% the same as their competitors. I think if PXG was the same price as the others they wouldn't be as popular.

    Iirc he hit the Black last year.

    Mmm, yeah, for that price I'd rather own 2 sets of @newlevelgolf irons. I'm definitely not in the PXG demographic.

    I heard a hour long interview with Parsons awhile back...he is entertaining Ill give you that...but if he is truly about what others have said above, then he should just charge 5K for a set and it would be even more exclusive am I right?...cause guys that can afford 3500 can afford 5000 too for most part...and pros certainly aren't paying for anything.

    For guys like Parson its all about ego...and egos get stroked more when you see your name on clubs used by millions not 1000....jmo.

    maybe even at 2000 I'd give them a shot.

    I hope they preform better than the previous version for the folks who play them! I don't play them and don't expect too. I know there are haters out there like with everything else and I am not one cause I am not his target market with my funds/income and I am fine with that. As with anything there are higher priced items for everything. I don't drive a $50,000-90,000 car, mine is only about $15,000 and I am fine with that. :)

    Now if I ever came into that kind of funds and was in the market to get new clubs, I would at least like to demo them to compare them to others before I made my purchase but that is just common sense to try all possible clubs that may fit your likeness/head style/game or whatever you want to call it.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. The XF line reminds me a bit of the i25 and the newest line looks like one of the older G lines.

    I also agree price is obscene. I find it interesting the SGI clubs are the most expensive.

    There's no way I could ever afford a set but I would like to try them out someday. I think it would be interesting to see what that kind of money gets you compared to the other brands.

    Their demographic wants them to be expensive. There are about 20 guys at my club that play them and $3,200 for a set is not that expensive compared to their other golf expenses that can easily add up to $20k per year.

    They are saying an increase of 1-2mph ball speed in the gen2, larger sweet spot improving accuracy and forgiveness and the size has allowed them to improved on feel and sound. I liked the gen1 and were some of the best irons I tried last year. I’m curious about this release.

    I played 18 today and shot an 84, put some Gen2's in my hand I might shoot an 84. Nice clubs, but I'm obviously not the target consumer for these. It's not a matter of affording the clubs it's just being realistic.

    I will never get past the screws, I have bins of them in the shop and do not want them on a golf club. The shear number of them just takes them over the top for me.

    From those that have hit or play them, are they actually doing something for weight placement /adjustment or just for the look?

    Have a partial set of 0311 and a set of 0311XF in 5-PW -- happy I have the Gen 1 XF - less offset than Gen2 and plenty forgiving. If I were doing it again, I'd look at Rogue or another Callaway iron offering. Having played them for 3 seasons now, they are good irons, feel great, look great at address, but not the be all, end all.

    If you buy them from a custom fitter, you will pay more than $400 per irons as a fitter will have better shaft options.

    But the Gen 2 look great, epecially the P. But still, I'm not putting out $450 per iron for an excellent graphite shaft. $375 per was too much for the last 3 irons. Paid a lot less 3 yrs ago.

    PXG Gen 2 irons

    Aloha Golf has PXG irons and Iíve hit them several times. I donít have any hard data, but personally I thought they felt terrible. Obviously feel is totally subjective, but based on that alone there is no way Iíd game them. The Gen 2s look great for sure, and as far as the price goes, itís been said plenty, but Parsons knows what demographic heís targeting so good on him. I just know theyíre not for me!
