Hello everyone! I'm very new to this forum and this is my first post!
I've seen reviews about this xxio 8 driver lately.. and it seems pretty forgiving! However, all the reviews were done by Western countries, where their size and built are bigger than us Asians... Has anyone tried or own this club? Any feedback for a high handicapper like me? Also, does anyone know where to grab this at a great price? hihihihi

It was retailing at $725 at isetan.. The feel n sound it produces is sublime.. Very very nice.. But only demo it in the indoor hitting area, Yet to try it on actual range.. But XXIO drivers have been drawing very good reviews..

once owned a used set of xxio irons.. thick sole and easy to get up in the air.. heard many great reviews about xxio drivers about it catering to many segment of golfers and read that it has topped the driver sales chart in Japan (for past 2 years?)..
On the XXIo 8, quite interesting to see that factory shaft weight is 40ish, i think regualr is 43g, and stiff is 45 - 46g... Quite a light shaft -heavy head combination... Perhaps trying to simulate a 'hammer in action' movement..
starman, go for the one in golfsite and let us know your review...

Sounds like a very good driver. Will consider getting one. Where can I test hit?

I'm using the xxio forged face driver
simply lovely sound and feel, stock shaft is awesome too.
also got a couple of xxio hybrids that are absolute lifesavers for me
its the fairway woods that doesn't quite agree with me but its probably me (watch out for my wts)
generally xxio makes great clubs if you can find one model that suits you. unfortunately they are still made in Japan hence it explains for the hefty price tag

I am lefty, there is no test club, no choice, I just buy it. There are some golf course pro shop have right hand test club for test. You can call transview to check which shop have it.

Xxio 8 - AKA Inbee Park driver
More suitable for slower - average swing speed players. Designed to help increase swing speed by reducing weight with the shaft/grip. Which also increases swing weight, so not for everyone's cup of tea.
If you have average - high swing speed, they recommend Xxio Forged drivers.
It makes an awesome sound!
