Tour Edge has launched its Exotics EXS 220 Driver for the new year which features a 20% higher MOI than its predecessor as well as Diamond Face technology.

The Tour Edge EXS 220 driver contains an all-new elongated face-to-back shape and adjustable 9-gram back weight to help produce an MOI of 5440 grams per cubic centimeter – over 20% higher than the brand’s previous EXS driver.

Combined with the new elongated shape and back weight, Tour Edge implemented Triple Carbon Fiber technology on the crown and heel/toe areas of the sole driver. The result of this use of lightweight carbon fiber was the ability for substantial weight-savings which were then repositioned to the back of the clubhead for added forgiveness.

The 8-1-1 Titanium face of the new addition is also shallower than its predecessor and contains lower density, lighter Titanium for greater weight repositioning.

The adjustable 9-gram back weight in the new Exotics EXS 220 driver is complemented by additional weights of 3 grams, 6 grams, 11 grams and 14 grams to allow golfers to find their preferred swing weight and trajectory.

Speaking on the entire Exotics EXS 220 line, Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod bullishly stated

“We have taken a substantial leap forward in design innovation with the entire EXS 220 line. We set an all-time record for Exotics metalwoods sold with the original EXS line and based on the initial reaction to the performance from our partners and tour professionals, we feel we will shatter that sales record with the EXS 220.”

The new EXS 220 driver also features an enhanced sweet spot due to the addition of Diamond Face technology behind the face. Forty-two different thick and thin diamond shapes help to create the large sweet spot which aims to provide golfers with a substantially hotter face designed to result in faster ball speeds, reduction of spin and better performance on off-center hits.

The acoustics of the company’s EXS 220 driver has also been improved upon, with a Sound Diffusion Bar (S.D. Bar) having been placed inside the clubhead in a move to enhance the acoustic engineering of the club.

The new Tour Edge driver contains an adjustable hosel which allows players to alternate from 7.5-degrees to 14 degrees with three head options. With plus/minus options from 2-degrees up and down, that will enable golfers to play alternate lofts of 9.5, 10.5, and 12-degrees, while a left-handed option of the club will be available in 10.5-degrees.

The stock shaft option for the new EXS 220 driver is based in line with swing speed for optimal fitting with the driver equipped with the following shaft for golfers in each category

  • 85 MPH or Below Fujikura Air Speeder: Ladies (R3) | Senior (R2) | Regular (R)
  • 85-95 MPH Fujikura Ventus 4T Core: 5-Regular | 6-Stiff
  • 95 MPH or Above Project X HZRDUS Smoke Yellow: 6.0 Stiff | 6.5 X-Stiff

The Tour Edge Exotic EXS 220 Driver arrives at retail on February 1, 2020, and comes with a price tag of $349.99.

    Did not take long to get rid of the $299 price point they spend so much time promoting a year ago….

    This article states, “MOI of 5440 grams per cubic centimeter”

    Is this the industry standard for measuring MOI? I ask because I think I remember reading the Ping G400 at a 9000 MOI and the G400 Max a MOI of 9900.

    That can’t be using the same measurement can it? Or is MOI really just a number that doesn’t matter as much as the number indicates? Are they all good over a certain MOI like say 3500?

    Can’t wait to demo this. A new driver for $349?!? Others start at $500 and go up from there. Plus, this one looks good and TEE CS has always been great.

    Will the ball still go out of bounds on the 6th hole at the Village Links if it’s hooked?

Details of Kevin Kisner’s putter switch

Published

on

GolfWRX caught up with Kevin Kisner ahead of the Travelers Championship to discuss a relatively new putter switch. While Kisner started the year using an Odyssey Exo Seven mallet putter, he switched to an Odyssey 2-ball 11 at the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge.

“I switched to this putter a couple weeks ago, and it’s been pretty good,” Kisner said. “I haven’t made a ton but I roll it really nice.”

When I asked Kisner if he ever played a 2-ball back in the day, he answered, “Yeah man. That’s why I always like going back to this. I used to play with a Backstryke, too. I did it all.”

Apparently, Kisner isn’t afraid to experiment with all sorts of different Odyssey mallet putters. For now, though, he’s going with the Odyssey 2-ball 11.
