XXIO Driver-a great club made even better
The XXIO8 series woods feature Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd.'s original Dual Speed Technology, which maximizes the effect of the golfer's swing. The XXIO8 Driver features a newly developed shaft that reduces the club's moment of inertia (MOI), delivering higher head speed than the previous model. At the same time, the heavier club head produces more kinetic energy on impact, resulting in higher ball speed. In addition, XXIO's signature ability to hit a ball high and hard with an exhilarating impact sound has been taken to the next level. With these distance-enhancing technologies, XXIO8 offers even longer flights than XXIO7.
Head Material & Contruction
- Face: Low-density Titanium (SUPER-TIX® PLUS for XXIO)
- Body: 8-2 titanium + SUS weight
- Face: Forged
- Body: Vacuum precision casting
- Head Finish: High-gloss metallic blue-purple gradation polarized coating (partially finished as color-clear coating) with mirror, ceramic-shot, and laser finish
- Plaque Finish: Navy
Evolution of high and strong trajectory
Auto Power Impact, which produces high launch and low spin trajectory., has been further refined in the XXIO8. The MP700 graphite shaft with its new rigidity design allows the club tip to flex more fully for a higher launch angle. The CG distance on the club face is also shorter than the previous model, making the head to return square at impact. These improvements work synergistically for easier return of the head to square at impact.
Expanded sweet spot
For the body, T9S Titanium, which is lower in density than the material used in the previous model, permits a weight distribution design offering higher MOI.
The face area employs SUPER-TIX® PLUS for XXIO, a high-strength, low-density Titanium. The new face thickness design extends the thin portion to the return portion of the face, resulting in a 7% larger sweet spot that complies better with golfers' typical strike point.
The new sound rib design together with a high-pitch design featuring less surface area and increased rigidity ensures a high, steady and exhilarating impact sound regardless of where the ball is hit.
