re: Patrick Reed to PXG
Funny.

Every other Company goes up in price and PXG comes down and that's an issue ?

TaylorMade charges consumers $500.00 for a driver that only cost them 50 bucks.

PXG just like everyone else, you pay for the R&D on every club.

It OK to not like PXG if that's a guy thing, but you can't say that it's nit quality equipment and performs because I have plenty of horror stories about every club manufacturer.

I don't get the hate.. I swing the 0311 Gen 1 irons and have loved them.. I'll probably upgrade in a year or so on whatever PXGs newest club happens to be..

Not hate for me.

PXG started out charging premium for their equipment.

Then they changed and slashed pricing down to TEE level pricing and as a consumer, I find that interesting. It takes the allure away just a little.

Would be like Cadillac dropping the price down to Kia level pricing. If you owned a caddy, you’d lose a significant amount of value in your investment overnight.


I think Ping and Titleist are the two companies that navigate this the best and it shows.

Just find it interesting and I enjoy hearing the debate.

Based on the number of clubs you buy, I believe this.

This board sure has strong opinions about club manufacturers, especially PXG and Srixon. I know plenty of people that love PXG. I love Srixon. Parsons seems like a good guy, so I hope they do well. The company is still young and probably trying to find their way. Having companies like these will continue to challenge Ping, Callaway, TM and Titleist. That’s a good thing for golfers.

Issue? Nah, it's a sign.

I neither like nor dislike PXG. I just thought from the get-go it was not a sustainable model. I have no doubt the clubs are high quality. Hell, you'd have to search long and hard to find low quality these days.

Also, I adopt, as if set forth herein, the most recent post by TaterSalad.

Nothing is for certain in the golf business.

Adams put out some quality products only to be put out of business by TaylorMade.

McGregor, Spaulding, Wood Brothers, Slotline, Lynx, Hogan, Nike and Topflight were all put out of business or brought and shelved. Some like Hogan came back as online companies as well as Sub 70. Next Level and NexGen.

It's interesting that PXG is evolving into running it's own retail stores. Parson's wife seem to be a decent clothing designer and of course PXG is well funded by Parsons fortune as long as he lives.

Boutique putter companies have done quite well online.

The PXG Heroes Program is doing very well, I know most of the HPD Narcotics dept play PXG clubs.

Time will tell.

They weren’t put out of business. Taylormade bought them to avoid pending lawsuits. Adams would still be in business if they wanted to be.

Same difference.

Actually Adam's is back online with a new Tight Lie wood.

Yeah, I can see that but wouldn't be the ultimate deciding factor..

See now I veiw that a bit different. Its like when flat screens came out, they were exclusive and stupid expensive.. Early adopters bought in and probably didn't blink and eye as price came down.. They had them 1st and thats what mattered to them and they'll be on to the next mouse trap next.. Plus, I think the initial pricing was aimed at those same types in the golf community to cover those R&D costs and now that they have a handle on it they can drop prices and bring their clubs to the masses..

Agree.

TM and Callaway dump clubs all the time in bargain stores or overseas.

There were at least 4 variations of Callaway X Hots woods and irons when they had too much inventory.

Meh… you’re lumping all tv’s together, and therefore the.prices have self regulated over time as a whole. There is no “premium” flatscreen. Different features cost more but that’s universal. Additionally, you don’t have flatscreens that slashed pricing but can only be purchased in select stores making exposure extremely difficult.

If Sony were to release this epic flatscreen (but in reality, same features as all the others) and then drop pricing overnight a few years later, but only sell it at Sony stores, what would their market share look like? Now couple the above with the fact that LG, Samsung, etc were right there feature wise and could be purchased anywhere.

Again, if you unloaded on a set of PxGs, that’s awesome! Glad you like your sticks. I

Honestly, nobody makes bad clubs these days.

It's what looks good to your eye and what gives you confidence.

Some types of clubs will be a better fit to a person's skill level and physical limitations.

I had no thoughts either way concerning PXG. If my neighbor hadn't bought a set, I may have never hit them.

Right now they work for me and give me confidence.

Will it last......
