XXIO9 Irons

Confidence Inspiring.

XXIO [zek-si-oh] is part of the Dunlop Sports Co. LTD family and brings the #1 golf brand in Japan to America. With a long standing tradition of premium golf clubs in Japan, Dunlop Sports is proud to announce the introduction of the XXIO brand to America. While American golfers may not be familiar with XXIO, the brand has experienced tremendous success in Japan and Korea.

The XXIO9 series features Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd.'s original Dual Speed Technology, which maximizes the efficiency of the golfer's swing. The newest improvement to DST includes a boost in efficiency for the initial portion of the downswing. Lag is increased by utilizing a heavier head and a lighter shaft with a higher balance point moving the CG closer to the grip. This improvement to the club brings the club head in tighter to the body of the golfer for a more efficient swing, which generates more centrifugal force (rotational speed) for increased head speed and greater distance.

5-piece head structure (#4-7) provide an even lower center of gravity. In addition to the nickel weight in the sole, engineers have placed high-density tungsten weights in the toe and heel. The result is a head with the lowest CG in XXIO history and a high heel-to-toe MOI. This 5-piece structure enables the ball to get airborne with ease and further improves the carry distance on miss-hits.

The Takeaway

XXIO irons feature Dual Speed Technology which maximizes the efficiency of the golfer’s swing. The newest improvement to DST includes a boost efficiency for the initial portion of the downswing. Lag is increased by utilizing a heavier head and lighter shaft with a heavier balance point moving the CG closer to the grip which generates more centrifugal force (rotational speed) for increased speed and greater distance.

A 5 piece head structure (4–7 irons) creates an even lower CG. In addition to the nickel weight in the sole, engineers have placed a high-density tungsten weight in the toe and heel. The result is a head with the lowest CG in XXIO history and high heel-to-toe MOI. This 5-piece structure enables the ball to get airborne with ease and further improves the carry distance on miss-hits resulting in higher speeds from outstanding forgiveness for shots of the lower part of the face.

Who's It For?

This very large oversized Game Improvement Iron is for any player looking to gain distance and increase launch angles with excellent forgiveness. In order for the DST concept to stay in place I would definitely recommend these irons for players with an average to smaller hand size.

Final Take

Just like last year’s version, the new XXIO 9’s have a very large, confidence inspiring head with a very rounded toe. Again, it is super easy to increase your launch angles, even with stronger lofts. The feel and sound were on par compared to last year’s version, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Having a lighter shaft only increased the DST concept, and that makes quite of bit of sense. While XXIO is very well received and known in Japan, it remains a relative unknown in America. So, never heard of them you say? I suggest a test drive if you’re looking for a super easy iron to swing.
