The PXG 0341 fairway wood is a solid performer, but not a game changer.  Adjustability only noticeable in extreme positions.

Introduction

A few weeks ago, we reviewed the PXG 0811 driver.  While it was a solid performer, our testing revealed that the adjustability wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, and there was nothing there that justified the price.  Does the 0341 fairway wood follow a similar course or is it worth the big money?

Looks

Much like the other clubs in the PXG line up, the 0341 fairway wood looks a lot like a PING.  It has a matte black crown, a round, symmetrical shape, and the size is average for a modern fairway wood.  The face is slightly on the shallow side making is look like a better choice off the turf than the tee.

Sound & Feel

Much like the look, the sound of the PXG 0341 fairway wood is very middle of the road.  It isn’t overly metallic, but it’s not dull either.  The volume is on the quiet side, and you get good audio feedback about the quality of the strike.

Performance

The PXG 0341 fairway wood’s most distinctive feature is also its primary performance technology: the weighting system.  There are eleven weight ports in the sole – eight in an arc toward the face and three in the rear of the club.  Eleven weight ports and two types of weights adds up to 2,048 possibilities.  Realistically, there are five combinations that will have a big impact on regular golfers.  To get five settings, trading eleven weights around feels like a hassle.

Beyond the weights, the 0341 is a solid, if unremarkable, fairway wood.  The ball speed is good, the spin is on the low side, and it’s reasonably easy to launch.  When you get it dialed in for you, it can definitely be a strong club, but there’s nothing I saw in my testing that shows it to be better than the current offerings from other manufacturers.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, the PXG 0341 fairway wood is very similar to the 0811 driver: a solid club that doesn’t really live up to its price tag ($500).  There’s really not much to dislike about this club, but you can get similar or superior performance from many clubs that cost much less.
