PXG Introduces Two New Stunning Finishes for Its Celebrated PXG GEN6 Irons

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Introduced in early 2023, PXG® GEN6 Irons are loaded with advanced technologies, made from top-quality materials, and feature the most impactful precision weighting system in the golf industry. Now, in addition to its original statement-making two-tone finishes, PXG has released two gorgeous new options – Double Black and Double Chrome.

The new Double Black option features a black Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coating that significantly increases the surface hardness of each club’s finish. Its counterpart is a new Double Chrome. The sleek, all chrome finish is engineered for enhanced performance and durability. Paired with matching weighting elements, these tone-on-tone irons wrap PXG’s industry leading technology in a strikingly clean aesthetic.

Five-times forged, PXG GEN6 Irons feature a clubface that is 15% thinner than its predecessor, further solidifying PXG’s longstanding position as the brand with the thinnest face in golf. The milled HT1770 Variable Ultra-Thin Face saves approximately five grams of mass that are repositioned low and to the backside of the club to help increase the moment of inertia and improve the center of gravity location. The thin face and milled Power Channel Technology increase face deflection for ideal launch trajectory, exceptional mishit performance, and industry leading accuracy.

Robotic laser wielding of the face around the outer perimeter of each club is the high-strength, precise attachment method used. This process is complemented by robotic polishing, which creates a remarkably consistent sole and face perimeter geometry.

PXG’s proprietary XCOR2 material backs the clubface. Developed for PXG Irons, the high-speed resin core is injection molded into the clubhead’s hollow cavity. The material provides structural stability to the clubface (which, unsupported, would fail with a single hit) and dramatically increases ball speed performance.

One large weight is located near the center of gravity on the back of the clubhead. This weight can be used to achieve optimal swing weight. Unique to PXG, customers can experience the benefits of these adjustments during an in-person fitting. Weighting is not intended to be adjusted after purchase.

PXG GEN6 Irons are available in two models – Players (P) and Xtreme Performance (XP). PXG 0311 P GEN6 Irons provide an ideal balance of workability and forgiveness. These irons, designed for low to mid-handicap players, feature moderate offset and a mid-size head design with a clean aesthetic. Designed for mid to high-handicap players, PXG 0311 XP GEN6 Irons feature a larger head with more offset to deliver an incredibly soft feel, extreme distance performance, and excellent forgiveness.
