The Low Spin PXG 0811 LX Driver Review

The Low Spin PXG 0811 LX Driver Review

We test the new PXG 0811LX Driver to see if it really does spin the ball lower ?

PXG is the new kid on the block that landed with a bang at ForeGolf early in 2016 and has been quietly and confidently working away on their next range of products.

Specifically, they wanted to bring a lower spinning driver to their range to compete in the market of power hitter drivers.

This new low spin head is ideal for faster speeds and better players, who need to regulate and lower their ball spin for longer drives.

Born from feedback from the players on Tour and testing from stronger ball strikers. The PXG designers shallowed out the CG location (compared to the original head) and relocated the weighting to allow for a lower spin. This allowed them to retain the PXG famous quality feel and flight consistency.

The new carbon crown saves on frame weight. A TPE honeycomb insert in the chassis helps give a unique sound and feel. Here’s some TrackMan Data from the ForeGolf ClubRoom –  let’s see how this lower spinning head driver differs from the original model.

The Spin

0811 Head is averaged at 3231 rpm
0811 LX Head is averaged at 2451 rpm

We stepped up the speed on some of the hits, to make sure that the higher speeds were managed well by the new head

The Shaft

We used a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 60 D+ stiff for the test. 

Design is where this product excels. The way the weights are positioned means that the CG is a definitely a lower, and deeper in the head. This helps deliver a lower spin, thanks to how the head delivers the face dynamics to the ball.

For the first time, very precise adjustments can be made to deliver an unmatched level of custom fitting to the golfer, and all because of the placement of the smaller individual soleplate screws. 

The classic teardrop shape is very distinctive and the matte black finish still makes this head look sharp and aggressive looking. The new LX driver price starts at €750 and is dependent on shaft and grip options.

If your swing speed is 100+ mph and you need a very consistent driver, with a lower spin … 

Then the PXG 0811LX is one to consider.

Due to the complexity of the head and the location for each individual screw, a custom fitting is imperative to unlock the performance of this club.
