Exotics XJ1 Fairway Woods: What you need to know

Published

on

Tour Edge is best known for its fairway woods, so it makes sense that its new launch makes forward strides in the world of fairway woods. Its new Exotics XJ1 line uses a new titanium material, a surprisingly sole-heavy design for a higher launch and more forgiveness, and debuts a new shaft from Fujikura.

The entire body of the XJ1 woods is constructed from 9-1-1 titanium, which Tour Edge calls “Supermetal” due to its combination of strength and light weight (it’s 10 percent lighter than 6A4v, a popular titanium used in golf club manufacturing). With the salvaged weight from the body, Tour Edge was able to create a heavier sole, which now holds 124 grams of tungsten, or two-thirds of the heads total weight.

The tungsten sole is applied to the body using a process called combo brazing, and the face, made with SP-700 Beta titanium, is laser bonded to the body. The face uses variable thickness across its surface to maximize ball speeds, even on off-center hits.

To help slicers turn the ball over, there is also a 12-gram tungsten screw in the heel that can be interchanged with 10-, 14- or 16-gram weights.

Exotics XJ1 woods will come stock with Fujikura’s Air Speeder shaft, which weighs in at 45 grams. According to Tour Edge, it’s the first company to put that shaft into a retail launch. The fairway woods will sell for $449.99 starting on November 15 in right-hand only, and will be available in the following lofts; 3-wood (15 degrees), 4-wood (17 degrees), 5-wood (18 degrees), and 7-wood (21 degrees).

    Right hand only. What a shame. They should at least have custom order options for left hand so they wouldn’t get stuck with excess inventory. I really don’t think there is a huge difficulty flipping a right handed club around & producing a left handed model.

    Seems like a really heavy head for the lightweight shaft.

      The table provides total club weight, not head weight. They’re actually quite light for total club weight.

        He said, FOR the lightweight shaft. Duh. Could’ve been a lighter head. But look at the size of the thing!

    The Fuji air speed shaft is a great idea – I am using a 45g shaft in a 4 wd, and it launches mid, and even when hit on the face a bit low or from the rough, it still gets air and ball go far.

    those are big, the 5 wood is almost identical in size to the F6 3 wood. For the off the deck, that’s just too big for player of my skill level.

    $450 for a fairway wood? Are you kidding me! If they make a similar driver will it cost $800? TourEdge used to be known for goods clubs at a reasonable price. I guess that is over. Seriously, with prices like this and PXG, clubs it is a wonder anyone buys clubs anymore.

      It is a Tour Edge Exotics – that line is premium with a premium price – has always been that way. I demoed its EX9 4wd with a Grand Bassara 39, and it was almost as long as my driver , and I hit it off the deck- and that is a steel head. Ti may go as far as your driver.

      Give it 3-4 months and price will plummet

Member golfinfl – Cameron Circle T 009

The “M” in 009 M is for masterful and this putter is a prime example of a masterfully made Scotty Cameron… these are also not inexpensive putters so the “M” could also mean $$money$$.

Member cooneyj1818 – Jordan Vs  

These Jordan’s ooze style and they can now be yours for a really nice deal. Lightly worn and well taken care of, they are almost new but without the “new” price.
