XXIO8 Irons - Steel
The XXIO8 Irons feature Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd.'s original Dual Speed Technology, which maximizes the effect of the golfer's swing. A newly developed shaft delivers 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 characteristic 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.

Innovative Dual Speed Technology maximizes effect of golfer's swing
1) Higher Head Speed:
The XXIO8 lineup offers a new steel shaft for a solid swing feel. Jointly developed with Nippon Shaft Co., Ltd., the NS Pro 900GH for XXIO is a steel shaft featuring a counterbalanced center of gravity (CG) design perfectly matched to the XXIO8.
2) Higher Ball Speed:
The new face thickness design is individually customed for each loft to match the golfer's hitting point, expanding the sweet area (108% compared to previous model) laterally in the middle irons and vertically in the wedge to create higher ball speed.
Club head weight has been increased by 2 g than the previous model to impart more kinetic energy to the ball at impact, resulting in higher ball speed.
XXIO irons-great clubs made even better
1) Evolution of high and strong trajectory:
Auto Power Impact, which suppresses spin and imparts a higher launch angle to blast the ball farther, has been further refined in the XXIO8. The MP800 carbon 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 in 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.
2) Expanded sweet spot:
The face area employs the same SUPER-TIX® PLUS for XXIO high-strength, low-density Titanium as the driver for lighter weight. These weight savings are redistributed to the neck and toe areas using tungsten-nickel weights. This increases the club head's MOI, resulting in an expanded sweet spot.
