Reasonably priced alternative to XXIO?

Hi,

 

pushing sixty and the swing speed is dropping. With driver just above 90 mph.

 

I've read a lot of praise for the XXIO X and I have a playing partner that has it and hits great drives.

But the cost is pretty high, even with campaign discounts.

So what else should I look at?
I am gaming G400 now, and I think I read somewhere that PING are not the most lightweight. (I assume weight is important for speed here....)

 

Thanks!

90mph isn't necessarily slow by any means. What about another fitting? You might find a lot of your ping gear is still a good fit, especially the irons.  Maybe dial up the loft a bit on the G400 woods. As long as the shafts aren't too heavy they're probably still great clubs.

90 mph is not bad, but I am losing distance each year. I am actually fine with the fairway woods, it's the driver I want to hit longer 😊

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
