XXIO X Black
Our take: Color one tester impressed: “These are definitely irons for a better player,” he said. “But they have just enough offset to help with mishits and still deliver that silky feel.” No wonder Ernie Els plays them — they’re as smooth as he is.

XXIO X Black irons
The details: Forged for a softer, more responsive feel, the X Black features a Speed Groove behind the face that helps it flex more, resulting in increased distance. The V-shaped sole lessens turf interaction and encourages a downward strike. Weights under the grip promote a smooth, lighter feel that’s easy to swing.
