New limited-edition Tour Edge EXS Pro fairway metal and EXS Pro hybrid unveiled

Tour Edge EXS Pro Fairway Metal

Tour Edge has introduced its “Straight From The Tour Van” new limited-edition EXS Pro Fairway Metal and EXS Pro Hybrid.

The new Exotics fairway metal and hybrid features new shapes and forward CG positioning as well as some technology never-before employed by Tour Edge.

Speaking on the new line, Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod stated

“At first, we were just designing prototypes for the pro tours, but along the way, we realized that the market has a need for these tour-inspired designs as a limited edition series. With our previous Exotics launch, the EXS 220, we designed our most forgiving and stable clubs we’ve ever produced. The EXS Pro line is designed to bring the level up with the more traditional player with a faster swing speed who is looking for anti-left clubs with extremely low spin and penetrating ball flights.”

Tour Edge EXS Pro fairway metal

The new fairway metal from Tour Edge features a traditional pear shape with a deeper beta-Titanium cup face designed with the tour player in mind.

Designed for maximum workability, the EXS Pro features a slightly smaller 170cc head size on the 15-degree 3-wood, while an extreme slope from the middle of the crown to the back of the clubhead aims to compact the head and ensure low spin and a penetrating ball flight.

The fairway metal clubhead features a Flight Tuning System (FTS) designed to allow weighting to be adjusted for draw, neutral or fade bias. The latest addition from Tour Edge comes in a standard draw position (heel-10 grams and toe-5 grams), but by switching the 10-gram weight to the toe and the 5-gram weight to the heel, players can employ a fade setting.

The clubhead contains a forward Center of Gravity (CG) designed to produce the lowest possible amount of spin for faster swing speeds. The lower CG angle and toe biased weighting seeks to help to close the clubhead at impact to increase ball speed and to produce a slower closure rate at impact to be an anti-left fairway metal that is desired by players with faster swing speeds.

The EXS Pro fairway metals utilize a beta-titanium/360-degree cup face combo brazed onto a Hyper-Steel body. Combo brazing is a zero-welding technology that fuses Titanium to steel, reducing weight in the face in a technology designed to produce a faster and more powerful transfer of energy from club to ball.

The clubs feature wider SlipStream speed channels on the sole in a bid to provide more significant turf interaction, while the clubs also include a Sound Diffusion Bar which aims to improve the acoustics.

The EXS Pro hybrid also contains a Flight Tuning System which allows weighting to be adjusted for draw, neutral or fade bias. FTS dual weight ports are placed to the extreme heel (20 grams) and toe (5 grams) in the draw position, and by switching the 20-gram weight to the toe and the 5-gram weight to the heel, the club will produce a fade.

    I purchased the 3 wood last year and absolutely love the performance and look;however, would prefer more options in heavier shafts for both the fairway woods and hybrids!

    Nice looking fairway, but a 60g shaft is just too light for a 3 wood (I know you can spec a heavier shaft)

    60g seems to be the norm now for a stock 3 wood shaft with many OEM offerings

    What’s the release date on these? I didn’t see it in the article.

    Wish they would go back to a matte black top instead of gloss. Can’t wait to try them though

Making golf easier: Single length vs hybrid irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been discussing directions to take to make golf as easy as possible. WRXer ‘SugarLandGolfer’ kicks off the discussion, saying:

“I see two paths to make the game easier:

1) Hybrid irons with shafts to keep the flight down

2) Single length irons

I did a demo day with Cleveland recent and tried the launchers with i95 steelfiber shafts, and they felt amazing. Only hit the 8 iron, and it felt like hitting the ball with a sledgehammer. However, I’m still concerned about the longer clubs. Hence single length.

If you were making the easiest to play set, which direction would you go, and why?”

And our members have been having their say on the matter in our forums.

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.

  • NoTalentLefty: “Lessons for sure, but there are a few ways to do it. Hybrids for the 3 thru 5 6 or 7 irons is also a way. Offset in irons and hybrids, fairway woods, etc. Single length, as you say. It’s a great thought, but the only way the game got easier for me was golfing a lot. Then as I got older and was familiar with the swing, I filled in what clubs to play. I’m 60+ now and the only club I never Been comfortable with since the advent of the 400+ CC head Is the driver. Godspeed on your search.”
  • dlygrisse: “I like the idea of going shorter steps between clubs, say 1 /4 to 3/8”. I believe some custom fitters think this is the way to go. I’ve also seen sets where the short irons are say 8-LW at 36” than the 5-7 are 37” and the long irons or hybrids are 38”. I’ve always wanted to try a similar set.”
  • jomatty: “If you wanted something super easy but not hybrids, I would look at the Cleveland uhx. I’ve got a 20 degree 4 iron, and it is very easy to hit. Going to a Cleveland launcher style club does make it a lot easier t9 hit the ball in the air and make solid contact. It has really helped my wife and is something I would consider.”
  • pinestreetgolf: “Neither one. It’s like asking us which is easier to put on, a small shirt or an XXL shirt? Well, it kinda matters what size you are. Your swing determines which is “easier”. The question itself belies a fundamental misunderstanding about how to shoot a low score, and that is correlating golf and golf swing. Your basic question is “which of these clubs makes playing golf swing easier” when that has relatively little to do with your score. Golf is a game of decisions. It is much closer to chess than tennis. You score lower when you make better decisions. Mechanics and equipment help (a lot) but they do it inside the context of an overall game and the way you swing. There is no objective answer to getting better except figuring out how to get the ball in the hole in fewer strokes. There is no answer to this question.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the single best piece of equipment they’ve found lately

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing their latest great find in the equipment department. WRXer ‘Double Dodger’ kicks off the thread with his choice of The Grip Master’s perforated leather grips, saying:

“They are amazing! I play without a glove and have psoriatic arthritis and have never felt a grip like this before. No issues whatsoever with slipping. No issues with harshness.

I have played about 30 rounds and see absolutely no wear at all, and the tackiness is unbelievable.”

And our members have been discussing the piece of equipment they’ve found in the last year that has changed their game.

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.

  • uglande: “Ventus Blue shafts.”
  • NoTalentLefty: “The Callaway B21 Fairway woods. Got the 3 and is it easy to hit.”
  • spring7: “I am not sure I have been happier with more clubs in my bag at any single time, and I have been doing this a long time! Cobra Speedzone Extreme Yellow HzDRUS Smoke – Longer and straighter than anything I have hit! TEE EXS Pro 15* Tensi Orange- Still honeymooning, but amazing off the tee and fairway, bad swings are punished though. Callaway MD5 Jaws 54 X Grind, perfection every way.”
  • Pepperturbo: “My most exciting find has been 620MB’s irons, specifically PW, 9i but 7i at 150yds uphill. It’s like aiming and shooting at a target and the ball sticks. Second best has been Ventus Velocore shafts. They be keeping this ole man in the game.”
  • mizunotps: “G410 plus driver. Really easy to hit.”
