Effortless accuracy, forgiveness on mis-hits.
Just like the XXIO9 driver, the Utilities feature a heavier head and a newly developed shaft that is lighter and has a balance point that is closer to the grip. These features result in a more efficient head path for greater distance. Thanks to the new face and sole design, these woods provide forgiveness for greater distance.
The face has been updated from the previous open-face structure to a new cup face structure which enhances COR performance across the entire face. In addition, enlarging the thinner surrounding area of the face near the heel and toe creates a sweet spot 10% larger than that of the previous model and improves the carry distance for off-center shots
XXIO9 — great clubs made even better
Since XXIO’s debut in 2000, it has evolved through eight series and been the No. 1 seller in Japan for 16 straight years. The core concepts of the XXIO series haven’t changed since the first generation—distance, forgiveness, and an exhilarating impact sound—but golfers will find the new series more advanced and attuned to their needs than ever before. For golfers that want to achieve greater distance with an easier and more enjoyable swing, XXIO9 clubs will be strong allies on the course.
NEW DST EXPLAINED
Dual Speed Technology has long been the driving force behind the success of XXIO. Each year from its inception there have been incremental improvements to the technology until we have arrived at the 9th generation of XXIO. XXIO9 gives the you A New Path to Power by improving the swing path and increasing head speed to maximize your distance. The heavier head helps to create more lag at the start of the downswing. The lightweight shaft and balance point closer to the grip allows the club path to be moved closer to the golfer to reduce the rotational radius. These first two components increase the golfer’s arm rotational speed, which raises the centrifugal force acting upon the club. These factors work together to create more lag and in turn allow for a faster uncoiling of the club just before impact, which results in instant head acceleration where you need it most, at impact for greater distance.
