PXG 0211 ST IRONS
  • PXG 0211 ST irons feature a traditional muscle-back profile
  • Triple-forged from 8620 soft carbon steel
  • MSRP $149 per club

The PXG 0211 ST irons follow suit as a niche offering in PXG’s more affordable 0211 series of equipment. PXG’s standard 0211 irons are designed to fit a broad range of players. However, a quick glance at the 0211 ST (Super Tour) irons tells you that’s not the case this time around.

30,000 FOOT VIEW

The 0211 ST irons are very much what you’d expect from a club that PXG asserts “pushes distance and workability for skilled golfers.” Shorter blade length, compact profile, minimal offset and a thin top line are generally requisite features of so-called blade irons.

But, again, there’s a bit of an engineering twist, according to PXG. A tapered sole and back-bottom flange add mass toward the toe side of the clubhead. Additionally, some material is removed from the upper mid-section and repositioned to the high toe.

The redistribution of weight creates a marginally more stable club face. That said, the shorter blade length generates less MOI about the shaft axis which is what allows golfers more control over the club face at impact.

Essentially, PXG is working to increase MOI (forgiveness) on a club design that’s inherently not very forgiving. Context is always important and as much as companies profess that one club is mostly this, but a little that, such statements are always relative. So, when a manufacturer points to design elements of a muscle-back iron that boost forgiveness, it’s still fundamentally a muscle-back iron where the defining characteristic is enhanced workability for highly skilled golfers. Think of it as something like being labeled as the smallest starting left tackle in the NFL. It’s still the NFL. And you’re still an offensive lineman.

BLADE BENEFITS

We first saw the “ST” model with the 100-percent milled PXG 0311 ST irons as part of PXG’s previous GEN3 collection. It was PXG’s first true muscle-back offering. However, with a $650 per club price tag, it was more a showcase piece emblematic of PXG’s boundary-pushing identity than something designed around the typical PXG consumer.

That aside, the move to include an “ST” model in the 0211 series is, on balance, a logical one. It gives more accomplished players an entry point into the PXG brand that isn’t cost aversive. In fact, at $149 a club, it’s slightly below flagship offerings from many competitors.

That said, the PXG 0211 ST does create a bit of an interesting lineup gap. The PXG 0211 irons match specs with the previous generation 0311 GEN3 XP irons which are the most forgiving of the GEN3 models.  Conversely, the PXG 0211 ST irons sit on the other end of the continuum. That means that, as of this moment, there isn’t a defined 0211 T (or P) model. It could be that PXG feels it can cover the majority of consumers with the two existing models. Or perhaps this isn’t the last entry in the 0211 iron range. We shall see.

MATERIALS, PRICING and AVAILABILITY

The PXG 0211 irons are triple-forged from 8620 carbon steel. As a point of reference, it’s the same basic material PING uses in its muscle-back Blueprint irons. The 8620 material isn’t natively as soft as a 1020 or 1025 carbon steel often found in single-piece forged irons but PXG states that this material and forging process allows for “a tight grain structure that increases the material’s strength, prolonging groove life and producing an exceptional feel.”

Also, to be clear, the 0211 ST is a solid-bodied iron. So we’ll have to save the discussion on polymers, fancy foams and hollow cavities for another time.

The PXG 0211 ST iron is priced at $149 per club and is currently available.

      I’ve played these on and off for a year now. It’s difficult to see why most blade lovers wouldn’t buy a set of these. Easiest blade I’ve ever hit and workable.. No, they don’t feel as good as a pured Mizuno blade, but right now they are $69 a club, and you could buy worse blades that cost 3 times as much. Miss-hit a Mizuno blade….ouch. Mis-hit these….lose a little distance; no problem. I use the Elevate 95 stiff shaft, but I’m also 55 years old. If I were younger I’d stick a little better shaft in there. Overall you cannot beat these at a price vs performance level.

      came off a set of AP2’s with project x shafts and ordered up the 0211 ST C-taper lite stiff and so far I am very impressed. Sound, Feel, Forgiveness, and look (especially at address) have blown me away.

      Just completed my set of 211 ST’s and are they NICE. Beautiful clean looks but very forgiving. I have been playing Miura Gikens 1008’s and Kyoie Dual weighted irons and the PXG’s with the MMT shaft are noticeably more solid and workable. Personally, I think a good shaft/head combo is serendipitous and THIS is magic from PXG ! Don’t know what the steel shaft feel like but I can highly recommend the MMT’s. Note that the iron shaft alone is $75. Such a deal at $129/club. Very pleased.

      The 8620 forging and the appearance are a faint reminder of my current irons, Adams MB2. No current blade offerings come close to the somewhat oversized blade of the MB2, but the 0211ST piques my interest a bit.

      Currently play AP2 714 and was disappointed at the T100/S and higher offerings from Titleist.. However, PXG is making a statement this year deciding to expand their market on both ends. Smart.. I’m sure they won’t feel like MP-20s or P7MB CB but at that price point, if they the forgiveness of the JPX series, they will have a winner at that price point and iron lofts are .not crazy strong + stock Elevate 95 or MMT shafts to boot!

      Well, I had a set of 0311P heads to use myself as I’ve not played for the last few years competitively and thought it would be a good demo set to showcase as well….. However I’ve just ordered these on first glance. Clean and simple, get in my bag.

      These look sharp, but missing a good blending partner. I was excited to see these at a great price point, but what do I pair these with at the top end of the bag? For now, would probably result in a mixed brand iron set. I see the same problem with PING honestly. The Blueprint irons are sweet, but in 4, 5, maybe 6 iron, would be nice to have something closer to the S55. I-blades and I210 just don’t see to match up quite as well. I hope PXG has a 0211T coming out very soon to pair with this blade. So far, I think Titleist, Taylormade, Mizuno are the leaders in blended set MB/MC combos, with Honma breaking in, and then maybe some of the non big name OEMS (New Level, Grindworks, etc.) I hope it is coming soon and can compete for a spot in my bag.

      Very clean sole. Overall, it looks similar in size to the new Mizuno MP-20s.

      One piece, forged, $149.00 per club? Wow! PXG woke up to the real world as their previous product line was over rated.

      What a big surprise, I love the looks of these clubs. Cant wait to see the reviews by everyone on these. One question it seems odd that these are forged and in the 0211 line up.

      My guess is they’re a part of the 0211 lineup because they are forged, and not milled. If you look at PXGs wedges, the have the Sugar Daddy Milled Wedges which are significantly more expensive compared to their forged wedges. They have their 0311 ST irons which are their Gen-3 Milled Irons, and would fit into the Sugar Daddy version of their ST iron lines.

      Could review. But I’m trying to figure out PXG’s place in the market. These irons cost les s than the standard offerings from the OEMs. If there is good as they read, then PSG, at this price, could have a substantial market presence.

      These irons are great, most forgiving blade I’ve ever been fit for. Anyone in the AP2, T100, 0311T, Apex Pro, P770, JPX Tour, MP, Hot Metal Pro, Forged CB, etc. iron category that wants to play a blade will be blown away by these on Trackman!
