OUR TAKE

A lot of fairway woods these days are designed as mini-drivers and feature more of a deep-face design to make them more functional off the tee. The XXIO X eschews this philosophy and presents a nice lower-profile head that, along with the rear weight, super-light shaft and low-swing MOI design, makes launching shots that never leave the target exceptionally easy. Kudos to XXIO for pursuing an innovative design that can work for anyone.

FITTER COMMENTS

"Like the X Driver, the X Fairway is very easy to swing and launch high for many different players, due to both the overall lighter weight and pleasing turf interaction."
