PXG 0311 ST GEN4 vs 0211 ST Technology Overview

Head-to-head, these two blades are standout performers. Let’s start with the similarities.

Similarities Between PXG 0211 ST Blades and GEN4 0311 ST Blades

Both the 0211 and GEN4 Blades are triple forged from 8620 soft carbon steel. What that provides is a tighter grain structure that increases the material strength but, importantly, also delivers an enhanced sound and feel.

Yes - you heard us right. We couldn’t put a blade in your hand without that signature bunny- rabbit-soft feel and sweet PXG sound at impact!

At address, you can expect to see a thinner top line and a sleek overall look built for shot shaping and extreme workability. And, as you’d anticipate from any blade bearing the PXG name – you’ll find a sole that cuts through the turf like butter.

Differences Between PXG 0211 ST Blades and GEN4 0311 ST Blades

So, what are the key differences? Firstly – the price tag.  0211 ST Blades are priced lower than our GEN4 Blades. PXG 0211 ST Blades are a fantastic option for advanced players looking to game a clean, forged blade design at a more accessible price point.

So why the price difference? In addition to a sexy milled back surface and the option to purchase in our gorgeous Xtreme Dark finish, our 0311 ST GEN4 Blades do provide an extra level of personalization during the fitting process.

That personalization comes from the introduction of our Perimeter Weighting Technology which allows players to test various head weights during their fitting to fine-tune performance. 

 One final differentiator is a variable blade length offered in the 0311 ST GEN4 Blades. The long irons provide a slightly larger blade length and feature an MOI-boosting cavity. The mid-to-short irons offer progressively smaller blades with a thinner top line that not only suits the eye of many advanced golfers, but aids with shot shaping and feel too.
