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.

Adidas X Vice Golf launch The Vice Golf Shoe by Adidas

Published

on

Adidas has teamed up with Vice Golf to launch the new Vice Golf Shoe inspired from off the course which includes a dozen Vice Pro Drip Lime x Adidas golf balls.

The Vice Golf Shoe from Adidas contains ultraboost and a signature lime-green colorway to accent the designs for life both on and off the golf course. The shoe features a camouflage pattern in gray and white on the top of the shoe, while a brand-new drip pattern decorates the boost material at the bottom.

The shoe features branding “discoverables”, such as a subtle Vice logo on the tongue of the shoe while a collab logo is celebrated within. The company’s motto “Embrace Your Vice” runs down the spine of the heel, while another Vice logo lives underneath the 3-stripe caging on the inside of the foot.

If golfers want a brighter color pop, the alternate neon lime laces give that option.

“Based in Bavaria like Adidas, we have always looked up to this global ambassador and brand that has made big moves in both the golf and footwear in recent years. It is a great honor to finally present the result of 22 months of work with tears of happiness when the final pair of shoes arrived” – Vice Golf founder and CEO Ingo Duellmann

In addition to the shoe, the packaging of the Vice Golf Shoe by Adidas is made to look, feel and act exactly like their signature golf ball packages. 

The bottom of the box is wrapped in a neon lime camouflage pattern, and the top cover features the exact, embossed Vice logo colored in neon lime drip pattern as seen and felt on the brand’s golf ball packaging. The connection continues after lifting the lid and discovering an actual box of Vice Pro Drip Lime golf balls, with Adidas logos, sitting in its own compartment.

The Vice Golf Shoe from Adidas (plus one dozen Vice Pro Drip Lime X Adidas golf balls) costs $219.95 and is available to purchase from December 7, 2020, 11 AM EST at ViceGolf.com.

Best blade for 2020/2021 – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best blade irons from the new releases. WRXer ‘hypergolf’ asks for opinions on what blade iron has stood out from the rest this year and our members have been having their say 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.

  • Chuck905: “Taylormade P7MB surprisingly stands out to me. Sharp looks and solid feel. Performance is consistent.”
  • Golfingfanatic: “Miura Giken TB-Zero.”
  • bladehunter: “Domestic It’s blueprint. And it’s not close. Mp20 has very smallish short irons. Similar to 6 iron shape. Which are odd. You need taller faces, in my opinion, for scoring clubs. My least favorite Mizuno MB in a while. Mp5 and mp68 being the best recent ones. But I’d second the TB-zero above for all markets.”
  • Nard_S: “High end, like the TB Zero. Average pricing, really like the P7. The TB offers a bunch of custom options that go beyond stamping and lie/loft, and they are Miura’s, which is never a bad thing. The P7 has a clean, unique look, love the 3D diamond muscle, minimal offset and stance. I could buy those tomorrow; I could buy the TB for a “I’m special” occasion which perhaps is never, lol.”
  • The_Champ: “Ping blueprint… and it’s not even close.”
