PXG have launched their brand new offering for 2023, the 0317 CB Players Irons. Named for the 0317 U.S. Marine Corps Scout Sniper, these irons offer long-range accuracy to any target.
Players irons are usually aimed at low-handicap golfers due to the narrow sole design as well as the tiny cavity backs. If this sounds like you, read on!
Here's what PXG have to say about their latest release:
"New PXG 0317 CB Players Irons offer total control with a gratifying touch of forgiveness for elite ball strikers and single digit handicap golfers. Using industry-leading manufacturing techniques, these stunning, milled cavity back irons feature a high-performance body design that is easy to manipulate for advanced shot shaping and trajectory control.
PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons stated: “For golfers who love the look and playability of a blade but know their game could use a little forgiveness every now in then, our new CB Irons are just the ticket. From clubhead size, offset, and sole design to a flighted trajectory, these irons perform beautifully in the hands of better players.”
Each iron in the PXG 0317 CB set is triple forged from 8620 soft carbon steel to create a tight, strong grain structure that prolongs the grooves’ life and enhances the overall feel. Then, the irons are CNC milled to ensure every surface, curve, and angle are produced to exact specifications. Finally, the irons undergo a precise robotic polishing process to refine the sole and other geometries for a flawless finish and unmatched consistency club to club.
In addition to high-grade materials and precision manufacturing, PXG 0317 CB Players Irons feature a cavity back that makes it easier to hit the ball up in the air and increases forgiveness on mishits.
For players who prefer a more traditional muscle-back blade in their short irons, the new CB Players Irons are engineered to blend seamlessly with PXG 0317 STTM Players Irons at any point in the set for maximum control and even more penetrating trajectory with high spin.
PXG 0317 CB Players Irons also incorporate PXG’s Precision Weighting Technology to fine-tune performance. A large tungsten weight on the back of the clubhead positioned on the center-of-gravity is used to optimise the swing weight and head weight target. Adjustments can be experienced during an in-person golf club fitting and are dialled in as part of the custom build process."
