The Technology Behind PXG’s Weighting System

PXG Club Weighting System

PXG’s Precision Weighting Technology is designed to fine tune performance and allow our PXG Troops to dial in their club specifications.

From irons to hybrids, fairways, drivers, and even our new Battle Ready Putter lineup, adjustable weighting remains key to our club fitting process.

Aside from creating a distinctive look, PXG’s Precision Weighting Technology serves a very real, functional purpose. Read on to find out how our signature technology can enhance your performance.

What Do the Weights
in PXG Irons Do?

PXG’s proprietary weighting system optimizes mass properties to support exceptional launch conditions and an enhanced MOI.

“What is unique about PXG Irons is that we have the thinnest face in the industry. And what that allows us to do is take the mass out of the face and put it around the perimeter of the golf club. By doing so, we increase the moment of inertia, or the forgiveness.” - Mike Nicolette, Director of Product Design

 

Our PXG 0311 GEN3 Irons feature nine weights made of lightweight titanium or heavier tungsten positioned around the perimeter of the clubhead. Eagle-eyed golfers will notice a slightly different set up in our new 0311 GEN4 Irons.

New Weighting Technology Introduced in GEN4 Irons

PXG 0311 GEN4 Irons feature a large weight located near the center of gravity (CG) on the back of the clubhead. This weight can be adjusted in 2-gram increments during the fitting process to allow golfers to experience various head weight configurations and achieve optimal, personalized performance.

 

“The ability to change the weighting in our GEN4 Irons during a fitting allows us to adjust a variable in a way no company has ever been able to do, the overall clubhead weight and subsequent swing weight of the club. For years, many players have said they preferred a certain swing weight, but as they’ve never had the ability to take that same shaft/head/length combination and alter the head weighting, they could never truly validate if that was the best combination for them. Our ability to change the weight on the fly allows the player to analyze and dictate every element of their set makeup and end up with a custom PXG set that is truly 100 percent their own and spot on for them.” - Nick Janke, VP US Sales

 

Understanding PXG Driver Weighting Technology:
How Will It Impact My Drive?

In addition to PXG hybrids and fairways, PXG Drivers offer adjustable weighting technology.

Our 0211 Driver provides a simple, single port, weight back design that creates a deep CG position that produces higher launch conditions and an exceptionally high MOI.

Informed by feedback from our TOUR Players, our PXG Prototype Drivers present one heavy and three light sole weights, all interchangeable to support preferred spin and bias settings. Interestingly, the weights are the same as those used for PXG GEN2 Putters.

 

GEN4 Driver Weight Options

PXG 0811 GEN4 Drivers present one heavy and two light sole weights that are interchangeable to support preferred spin and bias settings. Weights are available in 2.5g, 5g, 7.5g, 10g, 12.5g, 15g, 17.5g, and 20g options.

For those of you purchasing online, your driver will arrive with the heavy weight positioned in the front port – a location that promotes a low spin option.

For players who enjoy tinkering with their driver, consider adding a PXG weight kit to your order. The full weight kit includes: a wrench and eight weights: 2x 5g, one of each: 7.5g, 10g, 12.5g, 15g, 17.5g, 20g. The additional weights allow players to adjust their club at their convenience.

GEN4 Driver Setting for Maximum Distance

By moving the heaviest weight to the farthest forward/front port, we're able to create the lowest-spinning, lowest-launching setting for maximum distance. This is the default setting for our GEN4 Drivers.

GEN4 Driver Setting for Maximum Forgiveness

Moving the heaviest weight to the back port, we're able to create a high launch and maximum MOI, meaning more forgiveness.

GEN4 Driver Setting for a Draw Bias

Moving the weight to the heel of the clubhead makes it easier to square the face at impact and produce a more draw-bias shot.

 

Adjustable Weighting Technology in PXG Putters

Both our GEN2 Putters and our new Battle Ready Putters feature Precision Weighting Technology that supports further fine tuning.

The number of weights in the sole and overall head mass varies by model, as well as by the hosel type selected.

Each weight port comes standard with a 10-gram weight per port. We also offer a PXG Putter weight kit which provides six weight options to help you fine tune your putter to your exact head weight preference.

Your putter can be dialed in even more by changing the location of the weights in the sole. A lighter head weight provides for more feel and better distance control. A heavier head weight typically provides more stability and more forgiveness. Adjusting the weights can also influence the initial launch conditions to counter push or pull miss tendencies.
