2021 PXG 0211 Irons Review

50 Words or Less

The 2021 PXG 0211 irons are a blended set that offer strong performance throughout the bag.  Very long and forgiving.  Same technology as the 0311 GEN3 irons.


PXG made their name by offering the most premium golf clubs at the most premium price points, so it came as a big surprise when they released the 0211 irons in the spring of 2019 [review HERE].  For roughly half the price, golfers could access the technology and performance of the vaunted 0311 irons.

For 2021, PXG is releasing the second generation of 0211 irons along with complementary woods.  I tested a set of the new irons to see if they continue to offer the same level of performance as their more expensive brethren.


In the bag, the new version of the PXG 0211 irons are both very PXG and very of-the-moment.  PXG’s trademark black and silver color scheme is very popular with other OEMs right now, and it gives the 0211 a classic look.  This is balanced with the blingy chrome badge near the sole.  Overall, they look a little more streamlined than the original 0211 irons, which I like.

Due to the progressive set design, you can’t describe the address look of the 0211 irons in one go.  In the long irons (first address photo, 4I left, 6I right), these clubs have a longer blade length, more offset, and a square toe.  As you get to the wedges (above, PW left, LW right), the face and toe become more round and the offset shrinks to almost nothing.  Additionally, the leading edge of the wedges is round where the mid and long irons are square.

Throughout the set, PXG put a substantial bevel on the top line to make it appear slimmer.  It’s a very effective design, and it makes the mid and long irons more appealing to the better player.

Sound & Feel

Due to the DualCOR material, PXG’s GEN3 irons have a signature feel that no other iron quite duplicates.  Because they share the same technology, that feel is present in the 0211 irons, too.  On center, you can feel the ball springing off the face, but the club face feels solid and supported.  This solid feel is enhanced by the quiet, robust “click” of impact.

The one thing that is lacking is feedback.  As I always say, this is a double-edged sword.  If every shot performs like a pure strike, it may not be a problem that all shots near the center of the face feel similar.


The idea behind the 0211 irons is to bring the performance of the 0311 irons to consumers at a lower price.  As they did in the first generation, PXG succeeded.  Testing the 0211 irons revealed the same extremely high ball speed as I saw in the 0311 irons and the same excellent forgiveness relative to size.

What will stand out most to the majority of golfers is the distance they can get from the 0211 irons.  The loft structure of the 0211s is the same as the 0311 GEN3 XP irons [review HERE], which is to say the lofts are strong but not nearly the strongest available.  These lofts, combined with DualCOR and the “World’s Thinnest Face,” make for higher ball speeds than you’ll find in any other iron.  High ball speed plus strong launch angles and fairly low spin equals lots of distance.

While raw power is wonderful, I was most impressed by the forgiveness in the 0211 irons.  These clubs look good, particularly through the mid and short irons, but they have the consistent performance of much larger irons.  I particularly like that this much forgiveness is packed into a set without huge offset.  For comparison, the 0211s have offset specs somewhere between the XP and P irons [review HERE] in the 0311 series.

PXG 0211 Irons vs. PXG 0311 Irons

I wrote this for my review of the original 0211 irons, and it’s worth including here, too.

With the price of the 0211 irons roughly half of that of the 0311 irons, it’s obvious to wonder, “What’s the difference?”  Here are the key differences.

  1. The 0211 is cast, the 0311 is forged.
  2. The 0311 has adjustable perimeter weighting, the 0211 does not.
  3. The list price of the 0311 includes a wide variety of shaft choices.  The 0211 comes stock with two choices and others available at an upcharge.
  4. There are three different models in the 0311 GEN3 line up.  The 0211 is one progressive set.

To me, the last point is the most important.  In paying for the 0311 GEN3 irons, you have the ability to choose the loft/offset/head size that works best for you in each iron.  That might be minimal offset throughout, it might be a blended set of all three models.


While the 0311 GEN3 irons still have tremendous appeal, particularly when it comes to customization, the PXG 0211 irons simply can’t be beat in terms of performance for the money.  These irons can go toe-to-toe with their more expensive brethren on every important metric.  If you want that high end performance without the huge price tag, you need to give these a look.

    Love the look of these. Strong lofts though but seems to be becoming the norm. #SecretGiveaway2021

  8. Nice looking iron. It’s a shame that they are not easily accessed for demo.

  10. Travis Smith

    At first I was very skeptical of the lofts on this iron, but after giving it a shot they really did knock it out of the park on this one! I’m still slightly concerned about my wedge gapping, but honestly with a 4i at 19° it just means I can carry 4 or even 5 wedges instead of more at the top of the bag. Great review!! #SecretGiveaway2021

  12. Lenny Desmarais

    i have the original 0211 irons. Really like them. Do you consider this new model an improvement?

    • Matt Saternus


      It’s an incremental improvement in performance. I think there are improvements to the looks and specs, too, but that’s subjective.


  13. Thanks for this review. I’ve been very interested in PXG irons but the price tag kept me from trying them. I’ll be giving these irons a serious look. #SecretGiveaway2021

  14. Nice irons

  15. If you’re looking for a great GI iron, these can’t be beat. Currently at $115 a stick is a steal. Get them why you can!

  18. Marty Bates

    Thanks Matt I just ordered a set yesterday

  19. Always look for reviews here when I’m buying new clubs. I’ve recently gone away from power lofts and gone to bladed clubs. Getting much better contact and flight. I still retain 1 long iron in power spec for tee shots so will check these out.

  20. Martin Ward


  21. Interesting review on an attractive product at a favorable price point, Matt. This positive review has some similarities to the thumbs up reviews you and Meeker did with the new Srixon’s. Do you see similarities in performance and ‘aesthetics’ between these 3 models or am I reading too much into it? Clearly, the PXG 2021s have more in common with the Z7’s but thought I would ask anyway.

    • Matt Saternus


      The 0211 is significantly larger than the ZX7, to my eye. Also the lofts are substantially different, especially in the ZX7.


  22. Jenks E Boston


  23. Christopher Hughes

    These irons look awesome and very competitively priced now #secretgivaway2021

  24. Thanks for the review Matt. I’ll be interested in giving these a few settings when I’m fitted later this spring. #SecretGiveaway2021

  26. Matt, good review. I had the original 0211, great clubs. Thought is would sometimes get some flyers or some that ended up shorter then I thought they should be. Maybe this is because like you said, everything felt good. Good review. Interested in these srixon zx and apex 21. SecretGiveaway2021

  27. Michael Finnerty

    Awesome irons for the dollar. Looking forward to testing them myself.

  28. Michael Pasvantis

    They look great and the introductory price was only $115 per iron. PXG already tops in premium market is looking to takeover the mid range market as well.


  29. Allen Capsuto

    Are they really that good ?


  30. Seth+Peterson

    Love the content


  31. Russell+Avery

    They would work well with the #SecretGiveaway2021.

  32. Mike Atkins

    #SecretGiveaway2021. Let’s hope they make a lefty model !

  33. James Pustelniak

    to see prices coming down .

  34. I have played gen 2 have now ordered gen 3 xp great . Price is not that far off from other own irons

  35. Stephen Gengaro

    Great review. A few things worth mentioning. First, PXG has everything on sale and these irons are $115 each right now. I know you always put the list price, but if people are interested, they should act fast. Second, one of the overlooked parts of PXG is that they do the fitting free with no obligation – that saves $100-150. Finally, I have Gen 1 PXGs and I tested the Gen 3s. I liked them better, but simply didn’t see a big enough performance jump to justify spending money. However, based on the review of the new 0211s, I need to try them!! My only issue if the lofts are very strong. Thanks again for a great review. #SecretGiveaway2021

  36. Interesting review. Thanks so much.

  37. From what I hear, PXG seems to get criticism for their high price point and the look of their clubs. Interesting to see them enter the lower price point market and I like the cleaner look.

    PXG has never been a real consideration for me. With this release and their commitment to veterans and first responders, I am now considering a purchase.


  41. Matthew Vargos

    I’m thinking these or Ping 410/425 will be my next set of irons. Anyone try both? #SecretGiveaway2021

  42. PXG are always so expensive, how do they compare to some of the other brands?


    • Matt Saternus


      The 0211, even at non-introductory pricing ($115/club), are in line with TaylorMade, Callaway, etc in terms of cost.


  43. Kip Johnson

    I am glad PXG is trying something different. Thanks for the review. #SecretGiveaway2021

  44. Bob McKeown

    Enjoy your reviews use them before I purchase

    Please review the new PXG 0211 driver. I am interested in your opinion on it. Always enjoy the reviews. Thanks

  46. Bob Turkovich

    I have a set of the last generation 0211 , excellent feel and looks .
    PXG has very good customer support.

  47. Stephen Gulbrandsen

    Still playing my Gen 1 PXG 311 P irons. Teied the Gen 2, did not like them as much. Loved the Gen 3 but couldn’t justify the cost for the upgrade. I will check these out compared to the discounted Gen 3 price. Suspect Gen 4 on the way soon. Thanks, Matt. #SecretGiveaway2021

  53. Great review. Will take a look at these iron as I’m ready to replace my old big berthas. SecretGiveaway2021

  54. Tim Stewart

    Thanks for another wonderful review Matt.

    For clarification, there is no difference in price for steel vs. graphite shafts? I think there was a $15 difference in the first generation 0211s.


  55. Look like awesome clubs #SecretGiveaway2021

  56. I would love these. #SecretGiveaway2021

  57. The PXG 211 iron look good, but don’t compair to the 311 iron!! There is a good price difference between the two,but I understand PXG is trying to reach both ends of the price range to compete with other companies. Like the secret giveaway 2021

    Those look amazing. I’d really like to give them a try and critique them.

  62. As someone who currently games PXG clubs I’m very excited to try these out. #SecretGiveaway2021

  63. I will look at these and it’s fun to see PXG turn it’s strategy—and that of other OEMs–on it’s head. They start out with nothing but premium clubs, other brands start putting them out there—then PXG goes low. Pretty entertaining to watch and now in my price range. #Secret giveaway 2021.

  64. #secretgiveaway2021,

    I could use the new Modus 115 , 10 anniversary shafts.

    Great post. The lofts are quite strong in combination with the low spin I was curious if you noticed how much stopping power these had. Do you happen to know what the peak heights and decent angles were? #SecretGiveaway2021

    • Matt Saternus


      The stopping power is in line with other similarly lofted irons. For me – low launch, low spin – that’s not ideal, but these irons aren’t really designed for me.


  67. I think these are looking pretty good and with a competitive price. I hope all of the new stuff get MPF numbers to help separate some of the fact from fiction. #secretgiveaway2021

    This review was compelling enough for me to try to set up a session at golf shop to see how they perform for me. It would complement this test to learn that I won the #SecretGiveaway2021.

  71. Let’s do this!

  72. While I understand the corporate need to expand the market, the look of the 211 irons get lost in the translation of what the 311s project. I like the ability to customize loft in my 311 irons.
    BTW: #SecretGiveaway2021 as my Odyssey putter is currently in ‘time out’ in the corner of my garage.

  73. These PXG irons look like a good value at the current price point: $115 per iron

  74. Secret Giveaway 2021

  75. #SecretGiveaway2021

  76. I think they look amazing, and the review makes them sound even bettter I sure wish these were on the:

  77. Phil Lehnhart

    These look super, I have the originals, no plans to change. #secret giveaway 2021

  78. Kit Kildahl

    I thought these were more expensive. Gotta check them out now.

  79. I have the original 0211and just love them. The set-up is just perfect, and the feel, probably the best feeling irons I EVER hit. Feels almost like a forged iron. I will try the new 0211 but it will have to do an awful lot to move the originals out of my bag.

  80. Ive been playing golf for 40 years. I was a club pro for 12 years and played on the Hogan tour in the 90’s. The 0211 (last year) is the best feeling and most consistent iron that I have ever had. Love these clubs!

  81. David Bieritz


  82. These look nice! Much better IMO than the first 0211’s.

  83. #SecretGiveaway2021 Really appreciate your reviews and information. Enjoy the content.

  84. #SecretGiveaway2021.
    Not surprised at the distance achieved, considering the lofts are among strongest ever reviewed here. Wondering if reviewers take real lofts into account when evaluating distances, rather than just club#. For example, this set’s 5-iron loft is 21*. That is among the very lowest out there, but comparable to the Titleist T-400 5-iron, which comes in at 20*. Several others are in that neighborhood. At the other end of the spectrum are the Titleist 100’s, which offer a 27* 5-iron. That’s a 2-club difference in loft, so distance comparisons of sets so skewed, even from the same manufacturer, become problematic, to say the least. I’d also like to see reviews include an evaluation of the entire set makeup – how effective was it in covering all shots required for a typical golf round?

  92. great place to get good reviews about new golf equipment

  93. Matt, is it fair to guess that these are not much of a departure from the Gen1 0211s?

    I didn’t notice much in review of how these are different from the first generation. Obviously, if ain’t broke…


    • Matt Saternus


      There are some small differences in the design, offset, etc. Also, the new version has DualCOR, so they’re going to be a little faster.

  99. #SecretGiveaway; Guess this New subscriber since retiring from the World’s Finest Navy isn’t first to post here. But Matt find your information insightful and appreciate the “Lefty” additions at times with looking for new set of Irons. So far demo’d P790, Mavrik, Cobra speedzone, T300, Hot Metal. Waiting to see what ZX5 and these New 0211 are like. Problem is quality shots with store inventory since I am 2* Flat, -.50/-1” short. Lighter shaft.

    I’ve played the 0211’s for over a year now! They hit, look and feel good to me!

    Great reviews

  109. Seems like a good value for the cost per club.

  110. I wonder how these compare to the Apex 19 non pro version. Same stock shaft and the lofts look similar. Apex is forged but not hollow.

  111. matt,
    can you give comparison of these (0211) to TM P770 and Cally Apex 21’s.

  112. Nice looking irons. PXG recognizes lefties and offers them in left 👍.


  113. #SecretGiveaway2021

    Sounds interesting.

  114. #Secret Giveaway 2021 Love what I am reading about these irons!


    These are so intriguing, I can’t wait to try them and compare to my Cobra Forgedtec (2020). Also very curious on the woods review of this set. #SecretGiveaway2021

  116. #SecretGiveaway2021
    I’d like to see a review of the hybrids and fairway woods.

  117. #SecretGiveaway2021

    Maybe I’m ready to replace my PINGs

  118. #SecretGiveaway2021

  119. Ugh – I just got the Gen3 P’s this summer. Now all that tech available in these for $115 a stick? Love mine but this is the route I’d go now, no question. I think the Dual Core may erase most of the difference between forged and cast. Plus, I like the simplicity of a progressive set.


  120. John Simmons

    These clubs are great but not affordable for many golfers (including me).

  121. Matt, great review, and great review of the clubs.
    PXG has great prices for veterans. I served in the Marine corps and got injured and it effectively bothers my game.
    But the prices that Mr Parson gives out, he should be treated with more respect in the golf world.

  122. Kevin+Coughlin

    Hi Matt. Love reading your reviews. Count me in on a chance to win a new putter. Thanks

  132. Has PXG finally woken up? Greta price point for the new irons. #SecretGiveaway2021

  133. PXG’s lost me as a buyer the moment they came out with their over-priced, over-rated clubs. Can’t fix first impressions sometimes.

  136. Matt, I always enjoy and appreciate your analysis of golf products. The 0211s do look more refined with their top edge and the technology built into the clubs has me ready to get out and try a set! Thanks

  137. #SecretGiveaway2021
    I wish they had different shaft choices than the Elevate.
    And while the article does mention the strong lofts (and that some manufacturers make them even stronger), these sure seem like super strong lofts to me. 21* for a five iron. Yikes.

    Perfectly timed review. What do you think of their wedges in the lineup? Consider or forget? Should we look at separate wedges? Any that fit the set after PW?

    • Matt Saternus


      If you want consistency and forgiveness, these wedges are fantastic. The spin is solid but not among the very highest. It comes down to what you want from your wedges as to whether or not you should get these or bag specialty wedges.



  143. Glenn Flynn

    Anxious to try them out this season

  144. Fayaaz Hassim

    These look sweeeeeeet, time to get saving #SecretGiveaway2021

  145. Matt – great write up as always. 2 questions:
    1) Can you offer any thoughts on the spin relative to the loft versus other clubs? So, a 28 degree in another club versus this 28 degree 7 iron? Just looking to see any relative spin characteristics, understanding that the lofts are stronger.
    2) How would rate these on feel and softness?
    Many thanks!

    • Matt Saternus


      1) In equivalent lofts, I’d say the 0211s are average or slightly below in terms of spin.
      2) I don’t have much to add to my review with regard to feel.


  146. Lloyd Davis

    Love the more mainstream pricing of PXG. I’e always admired, but never considered, their equipment. This could be a game changer.

  147. Craig Trzebny

    These look pretty cool.


  148. Chris Thompson


  149. william j martella

    That has to be one of the most jacked loft spec sheets I have seen to date. Definitely not designed for your standard low handicapper / good ballstriker (unless they just like large irons and claiming they hit their PXG 7iron 200 yards).

    I’m a PXG fan love their Gen 3 0311P irons they do go long & some times straight even on off center hits using custom Nippon Modus 105Tour stiff shaft. I would love to try there 0211 irons & see how different they are from 0311P. The price on 0211 are definitely attractive.

  171. Michael Close

    Would love to hit these irons, maybe when covid goes away I can get in a trip to try them.

  181. Philip kendrick


    l like these clubs but it’s the price of them when there are better looking clubs out there for less and could do a better job if fitted correctly

  182. Paul Rattenbury

    Hi Matt. Was interested to read your review on these and compare to the one I’ve just read here in the UK, very comparable I have to say.
    As with, I suspect, many ‘average’ golfers, PXG was not a company I could consider sensibly [and manage to hide the true cost from the other half !!] these, however, could possibly be a game changer for an awful lot of golfers ?
    Btw – should a Brit be lucky enough to be selected for the giveaway, we could discuss shipping ??!! LOL
