.....well, being yourself a 14 handicap, gaming forged blades, i would strongly recommend to give a try to PXG irons..............i promise you will be surprised to see how quickly your handicap will drop.............:-)

Did you actually see a fast drop in your hcp because of the PXG irons? I'm asking because I am becoming more and more convinced that the type of iron we use matters very little when it comes to real handicap-lowering performance. Most players handicap varies very little over time, unless you suddenly start to play a lot more golf than before.

Fully agree with you.

The fact is that i like those clubs so much that also my confidence improved:-)

That might very well be an important factor, golf being a mental game to a large degree.

Hit the new offerings last week and they do feel very good. The new SGI clubs are clearly on the 'chunky' side but these are clubs that would suit people struggling to get solid contact with irons and particularly anyone needing to get the ball up higher.  I own the original PXG irons and while I like the new range, not going to race out and upgrade just now.  Can say I tried the KBS TGI shafts during my testing and these were good enough for me to now be looking to change into them.

I have tried the entire PXG lineup new and old (Except the FW) but I guess really in the end its about what really works for you. When I began playing golf I used JDM clubs (Maruman Royal SP, PRGR Egg), and also Taylormade M2 and Titelist but I thought PXG really suited me well. The main selling point for me was the feeling / contact of the club when hitting the ball. To me its a feeling that cannot be explained or replicated but I feel some sort of kick I guess? Well anyone who plays with me always asks if they can hit a shot or two off my PXG clubs and everytime they do they have a smile on their face. I actually mix JDM woods to compliment my PXG Irons, wedges and Driver, so i hope its not as biased. 

From my findings 

Driver 0811x - relatively forgiving, I wouldn't say its the farthest driver I've hit, but above average distance. It takes time to get used to especially that muffled sound when you hit, similar to a silencer on a gun. A dull sound when contact. 

Hybrid - One of the not so forgiving clubs, but when you hit it center it will deliver. 

Irons - I think this is where PXG shines. They are mostly known for their expensive, but subjectively worth it Irons.  

Wedges 

Putter - Well to be honest the putters are not the most economical but they do have a cool look to it. Great to show off to your friends. I'm a big guy so my putter is 375g, which is heavier than most putters but at least it stabilizes my putt.

I'll continue to update my findings because I am at work, i'll edit this post with more details as the day goes by..
