Based in Huntington Beach, CA, and part of the Japanese concern that also owns Cleveland and Srixon, XXIO is best known for producing clubs that are extremely lightweight and geared towards golfers with moderate swing speed who want to increase the distances they hit their shots. And officials at that company assert that their new XXIO X (pronounced Zek-si-oh ten) irons are the best they have made, thanks largely to the use of True-Focus Impact Technology, which combines a larger sweet spot with a shaft that helps players find the face center more often.
“We build golf clubs differently than any other manufacturer,” says Chuck Thiry, vice president of XXIO’s North American operation “Our equipment is lightweight and easy to swing. Each club features custom-made shafts and grips, ensuring that every component actively helps moderate-swing speed golfers get more distance and control.
“XXIO X takes this philosophy to the next level. The innovative shaft and head technologies in these new clubs will actually help a moderate-swing-speed golfer improve his or her swing with more consistency and a tighter impact pattern”
In addition to True-Focus Impact, the XXIO X irons utilize tungsten nickel sole weights lower and deeper in the clubhead to encourage a higher launch. Progressive weight shapes also are designed to optimize performance in each loft, while titanium face construction is employed to create a larger sweet spot that produces higher ball speeds.
