Tour Edge EXS 220 Iron

Tour Edge has officially launched its new Exotics EXS 220 hollow-body iron sets – the EXS 220 and EXS 220h.

Both the new EXS 220 and EXS 220h iron sets feature SpiderWeb Variable Face Thickness technology located behind the face – designed to act as a web across the face to enhance the sweet spot in every direction.

The new irons from Tour Edge contain a ramped sole which looks to offer more relief on the heel and toe for smoother turf interaction, while a new notch hosel has been engineered for easier bending +/- 4 degrees for expert custom fitting.

The Tour Edge EXS 220 and EXS 220h irons also feature LaunchPad Technology – a TPE polymer housed in the internal cavity insert that has been coated with a special performance gel that is designed to absorb shock and offer players a more significant spring effect.

Each iron set is power lofted which aims to provide golfers with added distance gains without compromising the same launch characteristics and apex heights as traditional lofts. The new irons also feature progressive offsets and blade lengths from iron to iron.

Speaking on the new additions, Tour Edge’s master club designer David Glod stated

“These two new irons sets take us into the realm of offering next-level distance coupled with extreme forgiveness in both game improvement and super game improvement designs. We have long been a trail blazer in hollow-body irons. These two gorgeous iron designs encompass every performance benefit this emerging technology provides.”

The EXS 220 iron set is a split set featuring both hollow body and deep undercut designs. The hollow-body long irons of the EXS 220 set (4-7) feature a forged maraging steel 450 Cup Face, while the deep undercut scoring irons (8-GW) contain a 431-stainless-steel construction.

Tour Edge’s new EXS 220 irons feature a 19-gram Tungsten weight, designed for extreme toe weighting and a greater sweet spot, and arrive in a platinum chrome finish.

The EXS 220h iron set is a completely hollow-body super game improvement set. The ‘h’ in ‘220h’ designates a hybrid iron set, and the new additions feature a high Moment of Inertia (MOI) and a deeper CG (Center of Gravity) due to its shallower face, and wider sole, which aims to provide players with maximum forgiveness due to the expanded perimeter weighting.

The Cup Face design of the EXS 220h aims to provide improved ball speeds off the face at impact, and the irons arrive in a brushed black satin finish made from 17-4 steel.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
