The PXG 0211 hybrid is an excellent option for players looking to replace their long irons. Consistent, controlled distance.
While PXG has, rightfully, put much of their focus on their irons, they’ve consistently put out some of the best hybrids in golf. From the very first 0317 to the new 0317 X Gen2 [review HERE], PXG has mixed forgiveness with high performance in a way that few can match. With the introduction of the new 0211 hybrid, I was eager to find out if they could bring that same level of performance to a lower price point.

The PXG 0211 hybrid looks great at address. It’s slim from front to back with a slight pear shape. The Hybrid Crown Construction is eye-catching, but the matte black finish keeps it from being distracting.
On the all-black sole, you’ll notice the mirrored rails and a weight in the center of the head. The “PXG” and “0211” branding are moderate in size and lacking in “Look at me!” colors, which keeps the focus on the performance pieces.
Sound & Feel
Striking a premium ball with the PXG 0211 hybrid feels very solid and iron-like. Impact is quiet and low pitched with a little “snap” when you strike one perfectly. You’ll get adequate feedback through your hands but locating impact precisely will require you to pay careful attention.
What has made PXG’s previous hybrids so good is their versatility. They hit that sweet spot where they’re long but not wild. They have enough spin to hold a green but not so much that they balloon or curve off the planet. The new 0211 hybrid strikes a similarly impressive balance.
Ball speed from the 0211 hybrid is solid and consistent. This isn’t the fastest hybrid I’ve tested, but the 0211 isn’t a distance hybrid, so that’s ok. Where the 0211 really excels is in launching the ball fairly high, easily, and consistently. That launch is paired to mid spin for a ball flight that can hold any green and allows for some shot shaping possibilities.
The technology on the sole is also worth mentioning. As you can see, there’s a weight port near the face. This allows you to alter swing weight as well as launch and spin characteristics. Additionally, the sole has rails which help it to glide through the turf more easily. After testing many clubs with railed soles, I’ve largely abandoned my quest for scientific confirmation – I’m content to say, “I feel like the club moves more smoothly through the dirt.”
If you need something you can lean on for long approaches, the PXG 0211 hybrid is that club. This hybrid creates reliable distance and an iron-like ball flight that’s ideal for handling those long par 3s. If you’re ready to ditch your long irons, get fit for one of these.
