The Verdict: The XXIO club brand isn't well known in the United States, but perhaps it should be. The X iron (the company's 10th-generation iron) generates swing and ball speed through two primary sources: a lightweight, high-balance-point graphite shaft and a face made out of titanium. The weight savings from the titanium face allowed the club's designers to use 21 grams in the form of tungsten-nickel weights to get more mass down low and back to help you get the ball airborne. It's not quite a club with training wheels, but it's close.
