Both the 0811 X and 0811 X+ Proto drivers features four large weight ports and golfers can get fitted into four of a choice of seven (5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 17.5 and 20 grams) to go into these ports to dial in the launch, spin and ball flight depending on their preference.

They are the same weights that feature in the Gen2 putters and also create the opportunity for the overall assembled mass to be adjusted.

Each driver also features a hybrid crown constructions with Honeycomb TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) sole inserts and anti-glare finishes at address.

The adjustable hosel can change the loft by +/- 1 ½ degrees to optimize the trajectory further.

The 0811 X Proto is a low-spinning driver for golfers with a level or downward attack angle. It also has a more compact look behind the ball.

There is also an 0811 X+ driver, which features a mid CG for mid spin characteristics.

“The PXG 0811 X and X+ Proto drivers appear to check all of the boxes for PXG’s tour pros – distance, dispersion, sound, feel, looks, and forgiveness,” PXG reportedly said in a US press release.

“By making a limited number of both models available to the most important golfers it serves, PXG’s customers, the company will further expand its opportunity for performance feedback – PXG’s only measure of success.”

The drivers are available in limited quantity and golfers in the UK can be custom fit for the new PXG 0811 X Proto drivers now, with prices starting at £520.
