Tour Edge Exotics CBX fairways, hybrids and “Iron Woods”

Published

on

We spotted Tour Edge’s new Exotics CBX fairway woods, hybrids and “Iron Woods” at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

While Tour Edge is yet to officially comment on the fairway woods or its new “iron woods,” the company has provided information on the CBX hybrids, which are already in play on the Champions Tour. Brandt Jobe used a CBX hybrid in route to a T2 finish at the Senior Players Championship in mid-July, and the company says several other Champions Tour players currently have a CBX hybrid in their bag.

The CBX hybrid is unique in that, like drivers, it has a titanium club face. Its multi-material design merges the beta-titanium club face with a hyper-steel body through a process called combo brazing, which the company says helps ensure exact weight tolerances. The hybrid also has a carbon-composite sole to create the higher, more forward center of gravity Tour Edge desired. According to the company, the result is “the lowest-spinning, exceptionally versatile hybrid capable of delivering tour-level distance and performance.”

The CBX hybrid will come stock with either a Project X HZRDUS Black shaft or a Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver Dual-Core TiNi. Available lofts are 16, 18 and 20 degrees. They will sell for $249.99 and will begin shipping on September 15.

    I like their clubs and they are long but, at $250 I’ll stick with my F6 hybrids.

    Generally great clubs, definitely interested in testing them out. Only problem is they don’t hold their value, so they can be had for cheap the next year.

    What’s old is new again – Tour Edge made these fugly things twenty years ago.

    Fugly on the bottom, I don’t get how they can make it look like 20 cent K-Mart designs like this, but the shapes from the top look good, so I’ll give them a hit and see what happens

    Think they will do well in the hands of many golfers. Good luck I’ve always been looking for these clubs but can’t find them.

How did heavier or lighter shafts affect your iron performance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft weight and how it affects their iron play. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ kicks off the thread asking two questions:

“1) If you went lighter, how did it impact your game (down to 95-105g). Tempo changes, good or bad?   

2) If you went heavier (120-130g), same question? Good move?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences in our forum.

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.

  • gripandrip: “Average about 105 on my driver swing speed… not much more anymore. Currently playing to a ~2 HC. Switched from DGS300 to Steelfiber i95. No issues for me at all. I stayed with DG400’s in my wedges. Initially, I thought I had issues with dispersion, but after a couple of rounds, it was no longer a concern.”
  • mackepa: “I have found that around 120 grams is the “sweet spot” for my iron game. Anything heavier, and I start swinging hard to try to get the shaft to feel like it’s loading. Anything lighter than 120, and it starts to feel like a toothpick. I tend to also play my irons over length since I’m a little taller. I currently swing driver about 110mph, but I don’t really go after my irons with the same effort. I currently love the KBS $-Taper 120 Stiff.”
  • erikro: “Biggest difference for me is with the s300 shaft I feel it more the next morning. With a 105 gram shaft I have no trouble.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “I play graphite iron shafts, but only 115g and higher. I like a club with some heft. If they get too light, it throws my sequencing off, and balls go everywhere. I can’t say I’ve ever gotten too heavy in my irons, but 80g is the top of what I like in my driver and FWs.”
