We tested: 4-PW, AW, SW

Our take: Most irons designed for better players aren’t considered lightweight irons, but the XXIO X irons stand alone as a solid lightweight option that better players might consider should they also want to effortlessly tack on extra clubhead speed without any added effort. Better yet, these are lightweight irons that don’t really feel that lightweight. They’re perfectly balanced to ensure you add clubhead speed without even realizing it.

The details: Featuring a multi-material construction, the X irons come with a milled speed groove on the backside of the titanium clubface which creates a channel around the perimeter for added flex at impact for more distance. Also, because these irons are lightweight, they come with counterbalancing under the grip for a more balanced feel. Progressively shaped tungsten-nickel sole weights are positioned low on the clubhead for a higher launch angle.


We tested: 5-PW, AW, SW

Our take: XXIO is a premium brand for consummate golfers who want quality clubs that are lightweight and user-friendly.
