We tested: 18°, 20°, 23°, 26°

Our take: XXIO’s commitment to quality craftmanship can be found throughout every category of equipment it makes, including the X hybrids. The classic profile and shaping is designed to provide improved distance, accuracy and forgiveness. This is for sure a lightweight hybrid, but it’s balanced feel makes it feel as though it has plenty of mass to extricate the ball from seemingly anywhere on the golf course. It’s durable, too.

XXIO X hybrids

Get better trajectory, tighter control and more consistency when recovering with the new XXIO X Hybrids. Lying in a divot? Found a fairway bunker? Deep in thick fescue? Let these super lightweight, flat-bottomed rescue clubs help you effortlessly strike it clean and keep you in the game

The details: A lightweight clubhead with a cupface design and Cannon Sole combine to produced faster ballspeeds across more of the rugged and durable clubface. The squared toe helps add more hittable surface area in a region where many amateurs miss. Also, the lightweight profile helps boost clubhead speed without any added effort.


We tested: 18°, 20°, 23°, 26°

Our take: It’s not easy to shrink the technology found in the 12 driver and woods, but XXIO found a way to do just that, resulting in a hybrid that is long, forgiving and easy to swing. There are two flex and two rigid zones that work together to boost energy transfer into the ball at impact, making these hybrids exceptionally long—even when struck a little off the center of the clubface. Like other 12 clubs these are lightweight, but they don’t feel flimsy in the hands. You can expect a faster clubhead speed with virtually zero extra effort.

XXIO 12 hybrids

The brand flagship and epitome of XXIO’s design philosophy, the XXIO 12 Woods and Irons are remarkably lightweight and easy-to-use clubs offering a specialized suite of technologies that amplify performance for the moderate swing speed golfer.

The details: Comes with much of the same tech found in the woods and driver: a Rebound frame for more distance and ActivWing – Aerodynamic Control for improved aerodynamics for a faster clubhead speed. Comes in either Navy or Red.
