Since XXIO’s debut in 2000, it has evolved through eight series and been the No 1 seller in Japan for 16 straight years. XXIO clubs are favoured by players of all abilities from amateurs to highly ranked pros, such as Inbee Park, who has achieved a rare career grand slam on the LPGA Tour. If they are good enough for World No 2 Inbee Park...
Golfers will find that the new series, the XXIO9, that’s available in stores now, generates greater distance, while being even more effortless to swing than its predecessor.
The XXIO9 women’s line features an entirely new technology that maintains wrist cock longer to create a change in head path without swing adjustment. With an exclusive design for women golfers that helps them achieve their maximum power potential, the XXIO9 women’s driver (12.5° loft) sends the ball 4.1 yards further than the equivalent XXIO8 driver. Similarly, the XXIO9 women’s fairway woods, utility clubs, and irons deliver greater distance than their predecessors.
With their elegant, simple and engaging design, the new XXIO9 women’s models make playing golf more enjoyable as well. The head and sole feature soft curves, while the crown is accented with a bright blue and the shaft with an attractive dotted pattern. Even the plaque features a pink accent for extra style.
XXIO9 Women’s Driver
XXIO takes its proprietary distance booster, Dual Speed Technology, to the next level, to help optimise women's power.
The women’s driver features an original shaft and heavier head that alters the head path during the first half of the downswing, raising head speed and increasing distance.
The heavier head and newly developed Wing Cup Face design (patent pending) further increases ball speed which in turn increases distance. The heavier clubhead maximises kinetic energy at the moment of impact, while the newly developed cup face offers a 10% larger sweet spot than the previous model for greater forgiveness.
By repositioning the weight (integrated with plaque) backwards and by placing the thicker part of the head toward the rear and side results in an even deeper and lower CG. This means that women golfers will find it easy to get the ball airborne and enjoy higher carry distance.
With a sound rib located in the sole, this produces an exhilarating impact sound that appeals to women golfers, encouraging an effective follow through.
XXIO9 Women’s Fairway Woods and Utility Clubs
The newly designed cup face and Power Wave Structure (patent pending) of the sole makes an even lower and deeper CG possible while enhancing COR performance on the lower part of the face. The result is a highly stable flight. Individual fairway woods are available in #3, #5, #7 at an RRP of £339.99.
Individual utility clubs come as U4, U5, U6 at an RRP of £219.99.
XXIO9 Women’s Irons
The 5-piece structure (#5-7) further lowers the CG of the head, enabling the ball to get airborne with ease. Moreover, expanding the titanium face towards the sole enhances COR performance on the lower part of the face. This design significantly increases the club’s sweet spot and improves total distance even for off-centre shots. A5-piece iron set (#7-9, PW, SW) is available from £830. Individual irons (#5, 6, AW) can also be purchased for £166.
All clubs except irons include an original head cover.
