PXG FAIRWAY WOOD REVIEWS
We tested: 15°, 18°, 21°
Our take: Hitting bombs isn’t exclusive to the tee box anymore, thanks to the technology packed into the PXG 0211 fairway woods. These clubs look good AND feel good, making them among the best candidates for a driver alternative on the market.
PXG 0211 fairway wood
The details: These woods come with a “weight-forward” design, which helps create a low-spin ballflight for a boost in ball speed and overall distance. The 0211 woods also include a high-strength stainless-steel clubface, a hybrid crown, honeycomb TPE insert, an adjustable hosel and railed sole geometry.
PXG 0211 Z
We tested: 16°
Our take: With the 0211 Z fairway woods, you won’t ever have to worry about elevating the ball when hitting off the ground. This beginner-friendly club is made for players with slower swing speeds, but with the look of a tour-level set. The 0211 Z will produce scratch-level shots, but it doesn’t require a scratch-level swing.
PXG 0211 Z wood set
The details: The 0211 Z fairway wood, like the driver, is made with a crown that shifts weight low for higher launch. It also has a tall face, made of a Ti412 material, to increase speed — even on mishits.
PXG 0341 X
We tested: 13°, 15°, 18°, 21°
Our take: The 0341 X fairway wood builds on the tech that was found in the 0341 proto fairway woods from last year. That tech includes a low-profile sole design, a carbon-fiber crown and customizable weights for the finely tuned trajectory of your choice. Coupled with the matte finish and piercing ball flight, and you’ve got a winner in the 0341 X.
PXG 0341 X fairway wood
The details: The 0341 X Proto comes with two ports for PXG’s adjustable Precision Weighting technology, an adjustable hosel, a low CG configuration, a multi-level and variable thickness carbon-fiber crown, and a honeycomb TPE insert. As a sum of its parts, you can expect faster ball speeds and distance levels previously reserved for only the longest bombers.
PXG 0341 XF
We tested: 16°, 19°, 22°
Our take: The 0341 XF fairway wood is for the player who wants all the performance benefits of the 0341 X model, but needs a bit more forgiveness on mishits. Players’ eyes will be drawn to the silver-toned crown at address, as well as the larger head designed to make the face more stable on mishits. You should have no trouble keeping it in play with these sticks.
PXG 0341 XF fairway woods
The details: Much like the 0341 X model, the XF is built for adjustability with two Precision Weighting Technology ports and an adjustable hosel. However, the XF has a larger, taller face which positions the CGI lower and further back to promote a higher launch and mid-spin performance.
