XXIO X Black
15˚, 18˚, 20˚
Our take: Heeding the same strategy as the driver in the X Black Series, the X fairway woods aim to provide more distance and forgiveness to golfers with moderate swing speeds, without having to give up on the shotmaking playability that better players prefer. The payoff here is a fairway wood that makes the game easier, without sacrificing the maneuverability required to hit a variety of shots from the fairway or tee.

XXIO X Black fairway wood
The details: The X Black has a cupface design that enhances the hitting area on the face, making off-center hits much more forgiving in terms of distance and accuracy loss. It also comes with a Cannon sole, which includes a weight pad low and behind the clubface for even greater ball speed and distance, especially on shots hit low on the face. Weights under the grip make the clubhead feel lighter, adding clubhead speed instantly.
