Understanding PXG’s GEN4 Driver Weighting System. How to Adjust Your PXG Driver

Hi, my name is Caleb Kroloff. I'm a senior R&D Engineer at PXG, and I'm going to talk a little bit about our GEN4 Driver and our signature weighting system.

On the GEN4 Driver, we have three different weight ports, and those actually serve two different purposes. First is to move weight around. By moving weights to the different positions, we're able to move the center of gravity and adjust the playability of the driver.

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.

How to Move Weights Around Your PXG Driver.

Step 1. Take the wrench that is included with the purchase of your PXG Driver. (This wrench is used to adjust the hosel setting on our drivers, fairways, and hybrids. It is also used to adjust the weighting on our metal fairways and Battle Ready Putter line).

Step 2. Select the weight you wish to move, place the wrench tip into the weight, and turn the wrench counterclockwise until loose.

Step 3. Replace with the desired weight by placing the weight into the empty port and turning the wrench clockwise until you hear two clicks. Your weight it now secured.

GEN4 Driver Weight Options

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, the heavy weight will be found in the front port – the driver setting for maximum distance.

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 8 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.
