The XXIO9 series features Dunlop Sports Co. Ltd.'s original Dual Speed Technology, which maximizes the efficiency of the golfer's swing. The newest improvement to DST includes a boost in efficiency for the initial portion of the downswing. Lag is increased by utilizing a heavier head and a lighter shaft with a higher balance point moving the CG closer to the grip. This improvement to the club brings the club head in tighter to the body of the golfer for a more efficient swing, which generates more centrifugal force (rotational speed) for increased head speed and greater distance.
Dunlop Sports takes its proprietary distance booster, Dual Speed Technology, to the next level, to help optimize women's power.
The newly developed Wing Cup face features an expanded flare from toe to heel which offers a 10% larger sweet spot than XXIO8.
The key update to Dual Speed Technology in the XXIO9 series is Dunlop Sports’ self-developed MP900 graphite shaft. Featuring advanced materials, this shaft is lighter, with the balance point closer to the grip, which allows the club to move closer to the golfer for a more efficient swing. The MP900 graphite shaft is made from cutting edge materials utilized in aircraft, launch vehicles, and next generation aerospace applications. Thanks to these advanced materials the MP900 graphite shaft is 1 gram lighter and the balance point was moved 10mm closer to the grip than the MP800 graphite shaft. A new layer structure was also created for the shaft in XXIO9, since the inner and outermost layers receive the most force during the swing, engineers utilized a concentric hoop layer to allow for both a lighter and more durable shaft.
Since XXIO’s debut in 2000, it has evolved through eight series and been the No. 1 seller in Japan for 16 straight years. The core concepts of the XXIO series haven’t changed since the first generation—distance, forgiveness, and an exhilarating impact sound—but golfers will find the new series more advanced and attuned to their needs than ever before. For golfers that want to achieve greater distance with an easier and more enjoyable swing, XXIO9 clubs will be strong allies on the course.
New DST Explained- Dual Speed Technology has long been the driving force behind the success of XXIO. Each year from its inception there have been incremental improvements to the technology until we have arrived at the 9th generation of XXIO. XXIO9 gives the you A New Path to Power by improving the swing path and increasing head speed to maximize your distance. The heavier head helps to create more lag at the start of the downswing. The lightweight shaft and balance point closer to the grip allows the club path to be moved closer to the golfer to reduce the rotational radius. These first two components increase the golfer’s arm rotational speed, which raises the centrifugal force acting upon the club. These factors work together to create more lag and in turn allow for a faster uncoiling of the club just before impact, which results in instant head acceleration where you need it most, at impact for greater distance.
