Srixon Sports has announced a new super-premium XXiO (pronounced zek-si-oh) equipment brand at The Golf Show in Harrogate, aimed at older, more affluent golfers with a slower swing speed. The faces of XXiO metal-woods and irons are made from titanium, while the new XXiO 8 series irons feature the company’s ‘Dual Speed Technology’, designed to maximise 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. The XXiO 8 driver also features a newly developed shaft that reduces the club’s moment of inertia delivering higher head speed than the previous model. UK pricing is to be confirmed.
The XXiO 8 ladies’ series has been specially designed for lady golfers to maximize the effect of their swing. The large head for easy addressing gives a feeling of stability to achieve a combination of great distance and enjoyable play for lady golfers says the company. More at: www.xxio.eu
