XXIO fairway woods-great clubs 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 Fairway wood 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.

Dual Speed Technology maximizes the power of the golfer's swing
1) Higher Head Speed:
Fairway woods employ the same MP700 graphite shaft as the driver to achieve higher head speed, even with a heavier club head.
2) Higher Ball Speed:
The new face thickness design is individually customed for each loft to match the golfer's strike point, extending the thin portion to the upper toe and lower heel areas to create a larger sweet spot and higher ball speed than the previous model.
Club head weight has been increased by 2 g over the previous model, imparting higher kinetic energy to the ball at impact for higher ball speed.
Evolution of high and strong trajectory
The fairway woods employ a 3-piece design with a lighter face that allows the surplus weight to be distributed in the sole. The 86 g (#5 wood) tungsten-nickel weight lowers the club head's center of gravity to achieve longer flight with a higher launch angle and lower spin. The head has also been made larger than the previous model, increasing the MOI for improved directional stability.
