How has the distance been compared to driver #1? Pass it yet?Will hit the course again tomorrow with this one and pretty excited. Its crazy forgiving, launches high and is perfect for my 2nd driver spot in this unique experiment. Hit almost every fairway out for two rounds in a row with it, and of course it was tested with THPers on FlightScope at the last THP Event.
I have it set at D3, the same as my GBB.JB, Do you have any idea what the swing weight of your XXIO is as now configured? I notice the stock Primes are D1 compared to D5 for the stock XXIO 9 driver. Is the main difference between the two the 85 gram lighter Prime head or the shafts?
There is definitely some confidence inspiring that tends to take place.I hit MikeDeans today for a couple of tee shots. First one was a really good shot, 2nd I got a little under. But, the weighting and balance just inspire confidence. Really had a good feel to it. My dad also hit it once, first thing he said when he grabbed it was wow, this is balance really well. And he usually never comments on that type of stuff.
http://www.thehackersparadise.com/forum/showthread.php?76110-XXIO-8-DriverI went today and tried the Club I thought was a XXIO 9, turns out it was an XXIO 8 stiff shaft. Compared it against my 10.5* 816, the 9* XR16 Pro with the Fuji 665 and surprisingly the XR16 Pro was the longest and straightest of all of them.
My numbers were still odd, average spin for all of them around 4,200 in the 17* average more higher than lower and club speed at 98 mph max with the XR16 (also the lowest spin at 3,600 & 3,800), average 96 mph with all 3 clubs and carry in the 215-220 range and a max roll out of 238 with the XR16. All these numbers are from memory so take them with a grain of salt and it was the PGA SS Sim so who knows how it was set up.
I wanted to hit the Prime which they had on the Sales floor but only in reg. 11.5 deg. so I did not want mess with it.
All in all the 816 is really not that bad for me, I could gain a bit with the XR16 and maybe a bit more forgiveness but not worth the money to change right now. I expected the XXIO to blow them both out of the water but it was right with the 816 distance wise, maybe the XXIO 9 or Prime would be a lot better. Still pondering until I can hit the Prime against them.
