Exotics claims “material advantage” with EX10, EX10 Beta fairway woods

Published

on

Tour Edge Exotics says it has a “material advantage” with its new EX10 and EX10 Beta fairways woods, each of which use a new face construction to improve the performance of the clubs.

Each EX10 fairway wood ($249.99 each) uses a Japanese high-density HT 980 steel cup face, which is brazed to a heavier “hyper steel” body. The use of the Japanese steel club faces paved the way for Exotics to create its thinnest fairway wood club faces in history, which the company says will lead to more ball speed and distance for golfers. The club faces also have variable face thickness (VFT), a design that positions different face thicknesses on different areas of the club face to help mishits fly more like center strikes.

EX 10 Lofts: 13, 15, 16.5, 18 and 21 degrees

Compared to previous models, the EX10 fairway woods have a center of gravity that’s lower and deeper. That’s thanks, in part, to a new tapered club head shape, which not only improves the aerodynamics of the club heads but reduces their weight as well. Its impact can be seen in the way of a 9-gram weight that’s located on the back of the fairway wood soles to improve forgiveness.

Tinkerers will enjoy the next bit; the 9-gram weight is removable. Golfers can purchase custom weights (6, 11 and 14 grams) from Exotics individually or as a set to help them achieve ideal weighting.

The company’s trademark “SlipStream Sole” — the metal waves on the soles of the fairway woods — have also been tweaked from previous designs. They are now longer and shallower, which Exotics says improves turf interaction.

Exotics is also releasing a line of EX10 Beta fairway woods ($299.99), which have more traditional pear-shaped club heads. They use 910 beta titanium cup faces, which is unusual because most fairway woods manufacturers exclusively use steel club faces.

Titanium club faces have been a hallmark of Exotics fairway woods throughout the years — particularly in its better-player models — and the company believes their use in the EX10 Beta is its best yet. They’re paired with a new “inner-cup face slot” that makes the club faces more flexible at impact, and they’re all combo-brazed to 450 stainless steel bodies, a pairing of materials that the company says improves distance, feel and control.

Like the EX10, the EX10 Beta has an adjustable 9-gram weight that can be swapped out for 6, 11 or 14-gram models. Both fairway woods are available with a bevy of shaft options; Aldila’s Rogue Max, Graphite Design’s Tour AD-50 and Mitsubishi Rayon’s Bassara E-Series are the stock options.

    Golf WRX has done such a good job on testing drivers with launch monitor data. I’d like to see something similar with fairway “woods.” But because the range is so wide, with so many lofts and differing uses of fairways, perhaps you could confine it to, say, 13 and 14 degree models that are intended to be teeing-ground clubs. Traditional 3 woods. Whatever is a manufacturer’s lowest-loft model.

    To me, a 3w is a critical club that must serve first and foremost as a fairway-finder off the tee. It’s a really important scoring club. And with 3w, my first consideration is what it is like off a tee, where launch monitoring could mean something, and then secondarily if I can hit the thing hard off a good fairway like on a long par-5.

    I’d love to see some testing on these new TEE’s.

    If your looking for titanium fairways check out some Adams F11 Ti fairway woods. Titanium faces speed slots still a great club and very reasonable prices.

    Claim – state or assert that something is the case, typically without providing evidence or proof.

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.
