Not sure if Tony and the guys who write articles for the Blog are looking for story ideas but one company that intrigues me is XXIO.

Had a chance to play a round with GolfSpyBarbajo recently and he was mentioning how big they are overseas.

Would be interesting to see an in-depth report similar to the recent PXG one.

They (I:)) was really Big in Japan early to late 2000s.

 

Honma slipped when they invested in golf courses and lost a ton of money.

 

XXIO was there to take advantage of the premium executive golfer niche which is huge in Japan.

 

If you are a certain rank you have to play a certain level of clubs (that is why there is Gliore for TM). That is why Honma/Beres has star rankings.

 

They were able to sustain that which was the key.

 

I only played the "auto-focus" xxio driver way back when, however they have a forged set of irons from 4-5 years ago that are basically the miz 850 forged in a slightly bigger size.

 

There is a lot of money behind the brand. Are they willing to dip into the US market now that PXG has shown there is a market.
