The XXIO8 series woods feature Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd.’s original Dual Speed Technology, which maximizes the efficiency of the golfer’s swing. The 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 at impact, resulting in higher ball speed. In addition, XXIO’s signature ability to hit a towering ball with an exhilarating impact sound has been taken to the next level. With these distance-enhancing technologies, XXIO8 offers even longer ball flights than XXIO7.
Expanded sweet spot
New face thickness distribution Higher moment of inertia (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.
The body is made from T9S Titanium, which is lower in density than the material used in the previous model. This lower density material allows for a weight distribution design that offers greater MOI.
New face thickness distribution
Higher moment of inertia (MOI)
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.
HIGHER HEAD SPEED
Dual Speed Technology
XXIO8’s exclusively designed MP800 graphite shaft is 2 g lighter than the previous model, with a new weight distribution design that moves the center of gravity (CG) 40 mm closer to the grip. This new design (patent pending) reduces the club’s MOI which enables the golfer to swing easier.
By enabling the golfer to swing easier without changing the club’s overall weight or balance, this new technology delivers higher head speed than the previous model, even with club length being reduced by ½ an inch.
HIGHER BALL SPEED
Higher club head kinetic energy
In addition to higher head speed technology, club head weight has been increased by 5 g compared to the previous model to impart more kinetic energy to the ball at impact, resulting in higher ball speed.
New shaft design
Even with more weight being distributed toward the grip, the new design allows flexing right up to the grip, resulting in higher head speed.
Better and More Consistent Contact
Making the club 1/2 an inch shorter than the previous model results in an easier swing which creates better contact and higher head speed.
