Tour Edge stopped the show at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show with its new Exotics CBX irons, and now we have all of the details. The irons are projected to hit retail on April 4, and will be available for $125 (steel) and $150 (graphite, or custom) per iron.
The Exotics CBX irons are unique because they’re triple-forged from Japanese S25 Carbon, making the blade-like irons feel softer at impact. They also have faces that are CNC-milled to ensure face flatness and groove compliance, and the back cavities are CNC-milled, as well.
With a dual-level flange and a TPE alloy insert behind the face, the back portion of the irons are designed to raise MOI (moment of inertia, a measure of forgiveness). The dual-level flange is said to enhance feel, mostly on shots hit low on the face.
Stock shafts include True Temper XP 95 (R, S), True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT (R, S, X), KBS Tour Steel (R, S, X) and UST Mamiya Recoil graphite. Also available are custom shafts including KBS C-Taper, KBS C-Taper Light, True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue and True Temper Dynamic Gold.
