    I have no respect for Parsons, his business (any of them), or his equipment. He objectified women and sex to sell godaddy ads, then wants to try to be the crusader for women of the LPGA...makes him a hypocrite in my opinion. He isn't selling anything that hasn't been done by Taylormade and others, yet wants to sell it at more than double the price just to try to create an air of superiority and exclusiveness. I think that every time he sells a set at those prices, he helps to drive the price of other equipment up as well.
    In my bag:

    TaylorMade M1 440 9.5 tour
    TaylorMade M1 3 wood
    Titleist 718 TMB 3-pw
    Vokey sm7 50/56
    Scotty 5.5m

    I think these look great and you could easily build a great combo set. The gen1 performed excellent for me when I tested them and hope they build on that in this release. Unfortunately they are way above my pay grade.

    I am pretty much over the origins of the company and Parsons as a whole. Honestly I've been pretty hypocritical about it considering how little I care about the origins of some other companies.

    At the end of the day, my preferences rise and fall and I am kind of over hating on PXG. I hit their irons last summer on the range and they were obnoxiously straight. I still don't think the value is there for the price, BUT, they are pretty fantastic and I am excited to try gen2 if I ever see a set.

    Same.

    Price is what it is, more gear at any price is good for all.

    I want to hit these, pretty badly.

    I laughed at how straight I was hitting them. I tried them on 2 different occasions and it was the same both times.

    I laughed, then I pouted a bit, then I laughed again and shrugged it off. 5 iron laser beams.

    I couldnít believe how soft they were too. I probably had the i20 expectation for feel and was shocked how much better than that they felt.

    Still kinda prefer to drop $2500+ on a scotty than irons but that may change later this year now that I have my super rat

    It's hard, man. 2,500 is a low end number for a formerly 3k Rat, and that's going to hold for a while, whereas the dollar sink into irons is basically gone right after you spend it.

    If they were 65-75 cents on the current dollar, I'd probably own a set and not think twice.

    Yeah and even though the used market is still high on the PXG it's not close to how well a scotty holds up and the PXG irons don't move nearly as quick. Fortunately I'm happy with my irons and won't be looking to switch until later this year at the earliest.

    I don't see an iron ever sniffing the dollar retention of a putter, especially a milled putter. Sucks, but that is our reality as consumers.

    Not of fan of Parsons, but as Dan and James said above, hating brings in a hypocritical factor....but I have really liked these irons since their first release. I have only hit them once (a 7 iron from a guy playing them during a round that asked if I wanted to try it......ummmm yes!)....if money was no object I would have a set

    I think parsons has it all wrong, I think he'd make more money by selling them at 1500 a set cause you'd prob increase volume by 10 fold....jmho.
    Ferrari would sell a lot more cars if they were only $30K as well.

    Sometimes high margin, low volume is much more lucrative.

    Was curious if there were further updates from anyone who has tested/gotten fitted with the gen2s. Not much information out there from hands-on impressions yet.

    And, at the risk of alienating folks, could we please leave folks' opinions on Bob/their impression of cost out of it? It seems to pop up on every PXG thread.

    My fitter didn't have them in yet. From what I've seen from the media and others who were invited to PXG to demo them recently everyone added a couple mph over the gen1 and said they feel even better
