XXIO8 announced in Japan

XXIO brand golf equipment is one of the best selling model in Japan.
They have just annouced the XXIO8 series of golf equipment which is scheudled to debut in Japan on December 7, 2013 in Japan.
We don't hear much about the XXIO brand in the US but they are available through select golf shops (which fairwaygolfusa.com is one of them (please inquire to cs@fairwaygolfusa.com).
They have a special website dedicated to the new launch of the XXIO8:
Why is XXIO so popular?
For a club to have a long running reputation like the XXIO model, it has to perform.  It has a reputation of being easy to swing and very forgiving.  The XXIO series has been around for over 14 years.
Their 7th generation keeps selling and most likely has over 30% market share in Japan.
For a country where golf clubs are much more expensive than the US (it is not unusual for people to spend $800 on a driver), golfers (especially beginning golfers) do not want to make the mistake of buying the wrong club.  With such high reputation for its forgiveness, both the golf shops and golfers are comfortable choosing XXIO as the club to buy because they can't go wrong.
Who should play XXIO?
With the stock set up, in my opinion, it caters to a more older golfing market.  Average swing speed between 70 mph to 90 mph.
It is generally very light and the shaft is more flexible compared to many american standards.
But if you are going to reshaft it and make it personalized for your swing, I would say "go for it"!
If you have any questions regarding Japanese clubs, send us an email to cs@fairwaygolfusa.com

Have you tried Aerotech Shafts? Best of both worlds @ fairwaygolfusa.com

Aerotech Steel Fiber Shafts were the played by 20% of the Champions Tour Players at the SAS Championship.

Thanks is one in every 5 players were using Steelfiber shafts in their irons.

You might say "Champions Tour is not the perfect gauge in performance of golf equipment".

But think again!

As we get older, we lose power and flexibility.  Players need to rely more on equipment to keep up with the competition. 

With players such as Mark O'Meara, Vijay, Kenny Perry, Mark Calcavecchia joining the league, the more experienced long time Champions Tour Players need to keep up with the distance game to stay competitive while maintaining accuracy.

Getting more distance while maintaining accuracy is key.  That is why Champions Tour Players are more receptive to trying out new technology in golf equipment.

Aerotech Steelfiber shafts provide such benefits to their iron game.

Aerotech Steelfiber shafts combine the Power of Graphite Shaft and the Stability of Steel Shaft to give you the distance and consistent ball flight and accuracy that most of the graphite-only shafts lack.

The popular weights at fairwaygolfusa.com builds are:
  • Steelfiber i110
  • Steelfiber i95
  • Steelfiber i80
Fairway Golf provides the above options to many irons that we carry such as Bridgestone, Miura, EPON.

More and more iron companies are having Steelfiber shafts as their custom options.

Once you swing it, you will fall in love with it.

Easy to swing.
Consistent ball flight.

You should give them a try!

2014 Taylor Made JAPAN Gloire Series Golf Equipment announced!

On 10/8, Taylor Made Japan has officially announced their new "Gloire" golf equipment.
Gloire is a Japan specific model which unfortunately will not be sold in the United States.
New Gloire Driver:
The Gloire series of golf club was designed for higher and longer trajectory in all their equipment.  The new 2014 line up includes: Driver, Fairway Wood, Rescue, Iron and Golf balls.
It is expected to hit the floor of Japanese golf shops on 12/5/2013.
The Driver has a high launch and draw biased characteristic.
The main feature of the driver is the Gloire Speed Face which is:
  • Made of 70 layers of graphite composite
  • enables lighter headweight
  • 30% larger face area and 55% larger sweetspot compared to a titanium face
  • of course, the adjustable loft
As the president of Taylor Made Japan (Mr. Yamawaki) puts it: "Japanese golfers pursue ultimate distance, thus, Taylor Made is offering the most distance that modern technology can offer."
It is designed for an amateur average golfer.  Most average golfers need the higher launch and a draw bias to produce the most distance.
Gloire Fairway Wood
The fairway wood does not have a carbon face.  But has Beta Titanium and new Speed Pocket Technology.  2 Tungsten weights are positioned closer to the face enabling Low Forward CG which produces high trajectory but low spin for more distance.
*Tungsten weights are 18 grams each. 
Gloire Rescue
The rescue has the 475 Stainless Steel face.  It also has the new Speed Pocket and 7 gram weight positioned closer to the face for Low Forward CG design.  Result is high trajectory and low spin.

  • Speed Pocket
  • 450PLUS face for maximum CT
  • 20grams of tungsten positioned on the toe for stability at impact
Gloire UD Golf Ball feature:

Titleist 714 AP2 Iron: What shaft for me?

It has been 2 years since the 712 irons were introduced.
Every 2 years, Titleist comes out with the next generation performance irons to please the avid golfers.
The new Titleist iron series is the 714 series:  AP1, AP2, MB, CB
AP1:  Game enjoyment irons
AP2:  Secret weapon
CB:  Feel and Control irons
MB:  Ball control irons
My personal favorite is the 714 AP2 irons.
My game is needs more forgiveness.  But I am use to playing a smaller blade length.  I feel comfortable looking down at a knife instead of a shovel.
I like the 714 AP2 because:
  • blade length is not too long
  • helps me keep the ball in play without losing distance or direction on slight toe and heel shots
  • cambered leading edge and sole (one of my most important factor when selecting an iron)
The most important thing is the shaft selection:
What shaft is going to suite my game?
The list on the right is the Titleist custom shaft selection for irons.
There are 3 shafts that stands out that can be great options for my swing:
Aerotech Steelfiber i110cw - I love the way that these new hybrid shafts feel!  UST Recoil feels pretty good too!  Just like the way they swing and feel.  Stability with the weight and bend profile is truely what I am looking for.  I might select a i95 for even lighter easy to swing just because my wood shaft weights are going lighter too!
Nippon Shaft Modus3 120 - When you think of Nippon shafts, it is about quality.  You can definitely be sure that each shaft is made to the proper specs with precision accuracy and the chroming is done perfectly.  Another Japan biased preference but Modus3 shafts add the stability to the NS PRO shaft.  More and more tour players are using the Modus3 shafts.
KBS C-Taper Shaft - I don't have a quick tempo but definitely is a shaft concept that I like.  Maybe the KBS Tour should be my choice since I probably need a mid trajectory.  Can't wait for Titleist to add the KBS Tour-V shaft (just introduced!) as a custom option!
Above shafts have been very popular among our JDM (EPON, Miura) orders and those JDMers know the quality and performance to maximize performance.
I probably should install an Iomic gripo too!
These days iron lofts are getting stronger and stronger.  But it's not just for distance.  With the modern design of under cut channels and deep and low center of gravity, combined with today's ball technology, you need to adjust the loft so that the ball flies at a good trajectory.
Launch higher, flatter on top, steeper angle of landing for predictable ball distance.
You don't want ball flight on the irons to bounce, roll, run, or spin back.  You want it to stop on a dime!
After you you have chosen the right head, shaft and grip of your next new irons, don't forget to dial in on the details!
Length and lie angle.
Proper length will enable to setup to the ball with the right posture.  Good posture will help you swing the club much easier!  Haven't you seen guys where they go up and down during their back swing and down swing?  They might benefit from a slightly longer shaft.
Even 1/4 inch does make a difference.  Posture comes before mechanics.
Also, you are never going to make use of the sweet spot unless you have the proper lie angle.
Proper lie angle can only be determined by looking at impact with the use of lie tape (or magic marker if you don't have lie tape).
You cannot see if the lie angle is right or wrong just by looking at setup.  I have seen many with improper lie angle (way off) and the ball has never seen the sweet spot.
Looking at the concentration of ball marks on the face of the club (especially in the short irons) will give you indication whether you need a lie angle modification.  If you see your marks concentrated on the toe of the iron face, maybe you need to make it more upright.  If you see your marks on the heel side of the face, you might need to make it flatter.
fairwaygolfusa.com is here to help you find the right irons and specification!
don't buy stock unless you know how to modify them.
