XXIO

4 posts in this topic

Anyone have experience with these irons?  In particular, the 2017 Forged versus the XXIO9 or the XXIO X?   Are the forged just as forgiving?

thanks!!

The XXIO irons are generally always good -- a little clunky looking...but they are designed more along the lines of slower swingers and people looking for easy-to-hit equipment. I've played XXIO for many years and they rarely disappoint.  Have tried every new option when they appear and while I like the latest offering - didn't really notice a massive difference to the previous model.  Forged feel better - and still forgiving enough unless you are a 20+ hacker.

Thank you for the response. So, did you like the 8s, 9s, or the X irons the best?  No noticeable differences you think?

you really should try to swing these models before you buy -  because it is all so subjective. I play the forged irons because I like the softer feel. If I was trying to help a high handicapper - I'd say the 9's would be a winner.  They look so big it should inspire confidence - but would not appeal to the better players who like a thinner topline and smaller footprint overall.  So if you just want to throw the club at the ball and get a decent result - the 9's.   If feel is more important the forged offering might be a better way to go.
