XXIO Announces XXIO X, the Tenth Generation of XXIO Woods and Irons: Experience Easier Distance

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA — XXIO® has announced the new XXIO X product lineup, the tenth generation of their flagship woods and irons. XXIO X (pronounced ZEK-si-oh ten) features the new True-Focus Impact Technology, which combines a larger sweet spot with a shaft that helps golfers find the face-center more often so moderate swing speed golfers can experience easier distance.

XXIO is one of the world’s fastest growing premium golf equipment manufacturers. With the highest quality materials and revolutionary technologies, XXIO products are painstakingly crafted for the discerning golfer with a moderate swing speed. XXIO equipment is lightweight and easy-to-swing. Each club features custom-made shafts and grips, ensuring that every component actively helps moderate swing speed golfers get more distance and more control.

XXIO X is extremely lightweight compared to average golf equipment. With lighter components and a higher balance point, XXIO X’s Low Swing MOI helps increase club head and ball speed without requiring any swing changes.

The new True-Focus Impact Technology—the engine that drives every XXIO X club—is a combination of two innovations: Smart Impact Shaft and Hi-Energy Impact Head. Together, these two features increase a moderate swing speed golfer’s chances of finding the sweet spot from 58 percent to 68 percent.

XXIO engineers observed moderate swing speed golfers and measured strong centrifugal forces that pull those golfers off-balance throughout their swing. The Smart Impact Shaft was made with a unique flex profile that works to reduce those forces, resulting in more consistency and a 28 percent tighter impact pattern.

When developing the Hi-Energy Impact Head, XXIO mapped moderate swing speed impact patterns and found that most mishits are on the toe or low on the heel. To help golfers hit the sweet spot more often, XXIO X features increased COR in those specific areas. This produced the highest effective COR of any XXIO driver with the largest sweet spot in XXIO history.

XXIO X Woods Key Technologies:

  • Increased COR in the most common impact locations for more distance
  • High-density rear weight improves center of gravity location for a higher launch
  • Thin, lightweight titanium crown redistributes weight for increased forgiveness

XXIO X Irons Key Technologies:

  • Tungsten nickel sole weights positioned low and deep produce a higher launch
  • Progressive weight shapes optimize performance for each loft
  • Titanium face construction creates a larger sweet spot with higher ball speeds

XXIO X Woods and Irons will be available in North America starting on Dec. 9, 2017.

Sentio Golf Introduces 14-Day Free Trial Program For Putters

New online direct-to-consumer initiative from the company lets customers try before they buy

ACTON, MA – Sentio Golf Inc. has announced the introduction of a new 14-Day Free Trial Program for their Sierra 101 line of putters. This program gives customers of the company’s online store the opportunity, for the first time, to experience the unique feel and response of their putters firsthand before buying.

The Sentio Free Trial Program allows customers who sign up online to get a Sierra 101 model of their choice shipped to them anywhere in the US to test out free of charge for two weeks. Shipping costs in both directions are paid by the company; customers who choose to send it back within the trial period can simply use the return label included in each box. Given the range of feel options available in their line, Sentio has created a “Feel Selector” to help customers choose the right model based on answers to questions about playing habits and conditions.

Customers can sign up for the free trial by going to sentiogolfdemo.com or via the company’s main website at sentiogolf.com. A valid credit card and U.S. shipping address are required for sign-up. Sierra putter models 101-S (soft feel), 101-M (medium feel) and 101-F (firm feel) are available to demo through the program.

Sentio putters feature a patented floating face construction which completely separates the metal face and body with a translucent insert-molded thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) polymer core. The Sierra 101 line of premium blade putters are available in color-coded Soft (green), Medium (red), and Firm (blue) models, providing an intuitive system for golfers to select their preferred feel. Each putter is forged and precision CNC milled, then finished with satin silver PVD.

Sentio putters have received numerous accolades and critical praise since their debut, including a Top 10 finish in MyGolfSpy.com’s “Most Wanted” tests in both 2016 and 2017. Tested against the latest putters from the biggest names in golf, it was one of the few putters to post a positive strokes-gained score.
