XXIO X Black
8.5˚, 9.5˚, 10.5˚
Our take: Designed for the player who wants some shotmaking versatility and who also needs some extra clubhead speed, the X provides more distance without sacrificing the playability better players crave. We happen to think this is a player type ripe for more innovation, and hopefully more products, as not all players who desire shotmaking versatility happen to have faster swing speeds. Good on XXIO for bringing more attention to this category.

The details: A cupface design makes more of the face hittable, reducing distance loss on off-center strikes. Underneath, the sole has carbon fiber in key areas to help redistribute and lighten the club’s weight for a faster clubhead and better distance. To help golfers add even more mph, there are weights placed under the grip end of the club to lower the club’s swingweight, making it feel even lighter and easier to swing faster.
