- PXG 0211 putter line features five different putter models.
- All putters feature the new Runway Reticle alignment system.
- Putters are designed to support the higher-handicap golfer.
Today, PXG announced the addition of a line of putters to their budget-conscious 0211 golf club line. This new putter line is not a replacement for their Battle Ready putter line. Instead, these putters are targeting a new golf consumer, much like the 0211 line did with full-swing clubs.
Since their inception, PXG has done their own thing in the golf arena. Mr. Parsons has a vision of how he wants to run his golf company. He stays true to that vison, even if it means that PXG must challenge some of golf’s accepted norms. What I appreciate about their approach is that PXG is also willing to blow up even their own accepted norms.
Case in point: the PXG 0211 line. A company known for making some of the most expensive golf equipment in the business launched a line that is priced well below competitors’ prices. Turns out that the 0211 gear is pretty good, too. During Most Wanted testing, the 0211 driver put up solid numbers against drivers that cost hundreds of dollars more.
I think you can guess where we are headed today with the PXG 0211 putters. Like the other 0211 products, these are less expensive than the other PXG putters. More importantly, like the other 0211 products, these putters look poised to deliver when it comes to innovation and performance.
Cast, Then Milled
If you are wondering how the PXG 0211 putters can cost so much less than the Battle Ready line, the answer comes in their construction. Unlike PXG’s fully milled putters, the 0211 putters are initially cast from 303 stainless steel and then the faces are milled. Casting cuts the cost. Additionally, you’ll notice that these putters lack the adjustable weights found on the other PXG putters. This also lowers manufacturing and materials costs. Finally, unlike the Battle Ready putters, the 0211 putters are not offered with optional hosel configurations. This reduces the tooling needed for PXG and that drops the price as well.
However, the goal of the 0211 line is not to produce the cheapest putter possible. Sure, dropping cost is part of the goal but the other part is to make putters that work. This explains why the faces are all milled. Every 0211 putter features the same roll-promoting Pyramid Face Pattern found on the more expensive Battle Ready putters. According to PXG, this face pattern improves putting consistency. PXG could have just left the faces alone after casting but they spent the extra time and money milling the faces to make them perform better.
Excluding the smaller V-42 and Bayonet, most of the putters in the 0211 line are on the large end of the size spectrum. Did you expect a putter named Clydesdale to be small? The more traditional V-42 and Bayonet weigh 350 grams each. The Hellcat and Clydesdale are 365 grams and the Lightning dents the green at 380.
If you are wondering where the Lightning is in the photo above, it was not through production when our staff snapped these photos while conducting golf ball testing at PXG HQ.
Why go big? First of all, the heavier weight should help to smooth the putting stroke. This should be especially helpful for an amateur golfer whose putting stroke varies significantly from hole to hole. The larger footprint should also bump up the MOI numbers, allowing the putter to resist the twist during the stroke as well.
The smaller and lighter V-42 and Bayonet models are likely geared more toward lower-handicap players than the others.
Addressing All the Arcs
While the individual models in the PXG 0211 putter line do not come with optional hosels, the line still is able to fit the needs of various putting paths. The heel-shafted V-42 is best suited for strong-arc players. The Bayonet, Clydesdale and Hellcat all feature plumber’s necks and should work best for slight-arc strokes. The Lightning is the pure mallet in the bunch and will fit the more straight-arc player.
The Pyramid Face Pattern milling is not the only putting tech incorporated into the PXG 0211 putter line. These putters feature a brand-new alignment scheme. Obviously, the Runway Reticle alignment scheme takes inspiration from an airport runway. Like that runway, the Runway Reticle is designed to bring your focus toward the target. Fun fact: Planes land better when they hit the middle of the tarmac.
The Runway Reticle acts as an arrow, pointing toward the front and center part of the putter. Ideally, this part of the putter is also pointed toward your target line. Not only do the cavity lines point toward center but the slanted edges of the bumpers do as well. There is nothing covert about this alignment operation. The putter is overtly directing your eyes to the target.
For a more seasoned player, the Runway Reticle scheme may not be necessary. Those players already have a system for aiming. New golfers and high-handicap golfers likely lack a reliable targeting system. If using the Runway Reticle helps those golfers to become more accurate and consistent when aiming the putter, then it is truly a valuable piece of technology.
A PXG 0211 Putter for $189
PXG makes affordable putters.
Many of us never thought the words “PXG” and “affordable” would belong in the same sentence. The thing is, PXG putters are affordable. The fully milled Battle Ready putters go on sale all the time for less than $300. With these new 0211 putters, PXG has dropped the price to play even lower.
The $189 price tag for the PXG 0211 putters is naturally the main talking point of the release. Yes, they are less expensive but they still feature the same Pyramid Face Pattern milling as the Battle Ready putters and the new Runway Reticle alignment scheme. This combination of technology and pricing makes the PXG 0211 putter line worth checking out.

These seem fine and the price is about average for other brands. I personally find it hard to distinguish between different putters. I would recommend trying a bunch out in a store and go with whatever feels the best.
Players that are good putters would still be good putters with a bunch of different options. Vice versa is true as well.

I own the PXG BR Spitfire and I love it
The weights allow me to adjust my putter for fast or slow greens
The face puts a great roll on the ball
As far as these putters go, I like the alignment aid.
Would like to give it a go to see if it really works
I am amazed at the people who crap on anything different.
So PXG has horrible commercials, and expensive and funny locking equipment, well it works for me and I am glad I went with them.
To each his own.

Shocking!!! Another PXG article. I’m beginning to think this is PXG and not MGS website. I’m sure the .001% of folks that are interested in buying PXG clubs continue to find these interesting.

PXG has made quality equipment. Note: HAS! Now it’s still good but not worth Parson’s price which seemed to change like the weather. He’s actually comparing his $299 driver to the Sim2 and Sim2 Max. He’s never done that before. Over priced and overrated now. He’s realized everyone has caught up or in some cases, passed PXG. BTW, he’s screwed the independent clubmakers who carried the brand to the masses. I have been fitting clubs for 25 years and some PXG was better, but those days are past. Waiting for the next ad campaign.🤔 8 irons for $799.00

How is $189 more expensive than any premium putters out there??
Tony Covey2 years ago
Having seen these in person last month, it’s hard to overstate how big these are. Just massive, massive putters in otherwise conventional shapes. It’s kind of a cool way to differentiate the 0211 line from the Battle Ready line, but yeah…you gotta want a big putter.

I got my PXG putter last December. First couple of months were rough. Now I can’t imagine playing any other putter.

You can fork over $190 for a 303 stainelss milled putter or get a Sub70 $149, 1045 carbon steel double milled one. What would you choose?; I know which one I pick & it ain’t the Pxg…

Top lines are poor. I want to line up and aim my putter. How can you do that with crooked lines. Fancy looks can’t fool me

I don’t know about MGS being fans of the brand, but my xperience with PXG has been positive – the “Closer” is one of the best putters I’ve played, and replaces my Scottie Newport 2 – I love being able to dial in shaft and weight preferences.

We are not fans of brands per se, more fans of companies that make great performing products and take care of their customers. We are here to change an industry from one that praised everything to one that hopefully helps make the cream of the crop rise to the top and all the other BS fall by the way side.

I would consider the 0211 Lightning if I hadn’t just got my perfect Odyssey 7s stroke lab 10 months ago. The rest of my bag is PXG and I love them!

The 0211 Driver was a great price, especially with the military discount, but it is not close to my Ping G410 Plus. So I am hesitant of investing in a 0211 Putter.. My Evnroll is 5 years old but it keeps on making me happy. that I bought it.

Bob Parsons is brilliant. He created a brand that people had to have. Why, because his clubs must be the best, because they cost so much. It’s obvious by now that some people will believe anything. Now the best part, he’s going to sell you his clubs for less than the big guys. Who raised their prices. because Pxg got away with it while selling only average clubs. Bob Parsons is brilliant.

It’s hard to imagine that Mygolfspy is not somewhat beholden to PXG, the company that first convinced some to pay huge amounts for very ordinary equipment (as attested buy mediocre test scores) and then, when the pool of suckers ran out, they offer much lower priced equipment to those enamored with name recognition.
Cody2 years ago
So how does that make MGS beholden to them? Lol what a non sequitur.
RC2 years ago
Being able to dial in weight and shaft bend profiles, along with being milled, is hardly “ordinary”.
Steve P2 years ago
MGS gives them a lot of publicity. I didn’t say they were beholden, just the appearance..

I 100% disagree. As an owner of the gen 1 and now the gen 3 0311s, I can confidently say nothing else out there is better for me. I have tried many clubs in past few years (Titleist, Mizuno, Callaway,) and nothing is better. I do believe that a good fitter can fit a shaft and model from most major manufacturers properly for many players, but the look, feel, and forgiveness of the PXGs is as good, and arguably better, than anything.

Hey Steve – appreciate the feedback!
Might help if you look at like this. We are a golf equipment site and early on we decided that is what we were going to focus on. We don’t cover the tour or anything else like the majority of other golf media outlets.
That being the case, when new golf equipment becomes available to golf consumers, it is literally our job to tell them about it. You might not like the topic we are discussing, but someone will.
Also PXG is releasing a lot of equipment so what might seem like lots of coverage might simply be because of the cadence a company is releasing new gear.
Hope this might help make more sense of what is published on MGS.

I really like the look of these putters, but the Ben Hogan putter I have was only $195 US dollars. I do love to see golf clubs at reasonable prices. I would definitely consider getting a PXG putter if I didn’t just buy a new putter.

I like the alignment markings. Well done.
PXG has found my wheelhouse with the 0211 line. They got only a cursory glance from me until it’s release.

I own a battle ready PXG putter. Best putter I have ever owned. When looking for a new putter this year I tried every brand (or close to it) and none felt or performed as well as the PXG Blackjack for me. Since I am the only one to own one in my club, it starts a lot of conversations on the subject of putters in general. All want to try it except when they see that it is a left handed putter. LOL
