Tomorrow we will be able to see XXIO's new forged irons. Dunlop Sports' main concern was how could they provide better feel and distinctive forgiveness.
This is what can find in the new XXIO forged irons:
- Dual Speed Technology (developed to achieve higher head speed and higher ball speed for longer flight distance);
- For higher ball speed: Enlarging the thin cavity behind the face at both the toe and heel expands the repulsion area, enhancing impact when the ball is struck lower on the face.
- MX-5000 graphite shaft and N.S. PRO 940GH DST steel shaft are lightweight shafts with the center of gravity moved closer to the grip. Both iron shafts utilize Dual Speed Technology. The design of the shaft tips for the long irons (#4~#6) have been made softer to increase launch angle for more longer ball flight, while the shaft tips for the short irons (#9, PW) have been stiffened to reduce flexibility, creating greater accuracy, with same look in all clubs.
MAP prices for graphite shaft clubs are $1,199.99 for the 6-club set (#5-9, PW), prices for the steel shaft clubs are $959.99 for the 6-club set (#5-9, PW). Individual clubs (#4, AW, SW) are $200.00 each for graphite shafts and $160.00 for steel shafts.
