For ClubTest 2021, we tested and reviewed 53 new irons to help you find the right one for your game. (For more on our testing process, click here.) Below are the results for the XXIO Prime irons. You can find the full list of irons and test results here.
Our take: Packing a lot of technology into an iron can be a tall order for club designers. But rest assured, XXIO’s Prime irons are able to heap on loads of tech without cluttering its looks. Our testers agreed. “I couldn’t put them down,” said one. “I nearly wore myself out.” These irons have the marks of a luxury product for sure, but they’re super-friendly for golfers who have moderate swing speeds and want to hit the ball farther, straighter and with more forgiveness on off-center hits.

The details: The face is made of SuperTIX PLUS titanium and has CNC-milled speed grooves for a bigger sweet spot, more ball speed and greater overall distance. The shorter profile design pairs with tungsten-nickel weighting for added forgiveness, and the SP-1000 graphite shaft is made with carbon fiber and resin materials that help produce more speed and distance in a smoother, easy-to-swing profile.
