PXG Reveals New 100 Percent Milled Gen2 Putters

Last month, PXG revealed their new GEN2 putters, 8 club head types respectively, all part of the company’s brand spanking new 100 percent milled collection. With this new release, PXG seems to try to emphasize the importance of putter fittings, as there are no less than eight models to choose from, in 3 hosel options and 2 finishes. Basically, the new GEN 2 putters line is focused on favoring a players’ eye and stroke.

So, to start with the “breaking news”, one of the most important features of GEN2 is PXG’s cutting edge custom fitting technology, which is designed to provide an ideal fit in order to deliver optimal performance for golfers of all skill levels. The 8 GEN2 models are already available at retailers in North America and they include the Lucky “D”, Closer, Mustang, Brandon, Mini Gunboat, Bat Attack, Operator and Gunboat. As you can see, PXG’s marketing team is working overtime, and that’s not a bad thing after all. Moving along with the story, the 3 aforementioned hosel options are plumber’s neck, double bend and heel shafted. Each of the GEN2 clubs can be custom configured on demand during a fitting with your preferred hosel type, i.e. with the one that best suits your stroke.

Each putter model works in synergy with a specific hosel, and the respective combo will determine the overall assembled mass; more precisely, you’ll have tungsten made (heavier) large sole weights and/or titanium (lighter) weights, which will influence both bias and club head weight. According to PXG, the weights are very easy to adjust, and they arrive in in 5 gram, 10 gram, 15 gram and 20 gram options. And speaking of fitting experience with the new PXG putters, golfers will be able to choose from eight models, three hosel options and two finishes. The eight models, as we already told you, include the Closer, Lucky “D,” Brandon, Mustang, Bat Attack, Mini Gunboat, Gunboat, and Operator, which means that PXG’s marketing team is working overtime, while the three hosel options are double bend, plumber’s neck, or heel shafted. Each club head can be custom configured during a fitting with the hosel that best suits a golfer’s stroke. Moreover, each of the putter head styles is available in a black and a chrome finish, and features ports in the sole, so it can harbor tungsten or titanium weights, in order to help you achieve the ideal swing.

Speaking on the company’s new custom fitting technology, PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons explained

PXG Reveals New 100 Percent Milled Gen2 Putters

“Putts account for roughly 40 percent of shots taken, yet only a small percentage of golfers make an effort to be properly fitted. We’re working to change that stat. With the release of our exceptional new PXG GEN2 Putters, we are committed to helping golfers dial-in their preferred putter to help shave strokes off their score.”

The putter model in conjunction with the hosel chosen will dictate the overall assembled mass, with large sole weights made of heavier tungsten and lighter titanium also influencing club head weight and bias. The weights, which according to PXG are easily adjustable, are offered in 5g, 10g, 15g, and 20g options.

And speaking of fitting experience, here’s PXG ambassador Gary Player:

“When I was fitted for my PXG putter I tried various weights, hosels, lengths, and head shapes before settling on my specs. I now play the new PXG GEN2 Brandon with a plumber’s neck. It’s been a long time since I have been this comfortable with a putter.”

On top of that, the new GEN2 putters from PXG are designed with an innovative pyramid face pattern, variable sized. This peculiar face pattern is crafted with pyramid like structures, and this particular shape was chosen due to its ability to literally bite into the ball cover, thus helping create more consistent launch/roll characteristics, along with an improved sound and feel. If you take a closer look at any of the 8 putter models, you’ll see that the highest pattern density of the pyramid-like (more like shark teeth) structures is located around the center of the face, a clever design which allows to offset ball speed loss, which is a regular occurrence on mishits.

Finally, the new PXG GEN2 putters are crafted using high quality milled 303 stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum, and they retail for $425 MSRP.
