Tour Edge has unveiled its new Exotics EXS 220 fairway metal and hybrid which feature all-new Diamond Face technology with 44 different thick and thin diamond shapes behind the face of the metals for an enhanced sweet spot.

The Diamond Face technology featured in Tour Edge’s new metalwoods contain thick and thin diamond shapes or “mini-trampolines” behind the face. The diamond shapes produce a hotter face designed to provide players with faster ball speeds and better performance on off-center hits, as well as reduced spin.

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

“Our goal is to make anyone who hits these side by side to clubs that cost twice as much to question why they would ever think about spending the extra money. These clubs are that good.

We will have a large amount of EXS 220 in play on the professional tours and we will penetrate bags of the better players across the globe due to the extreme performance benefits of these clubs. Truly, pound for pound, nothing comes close to the EXS 220 metalwoods.”

2020 Tour Edge Exotics EXS 220 fairway woods: Details

The Tour Edge EXS fairway metals have been constructed with a new Hyper-Steel that is 14% lighter than its predecessor. Through this new construction, weight has been repositioned to the center of the sole and the rear of the clubhead in a bid to create dual-concentric weighting that produces a unique combination of ease of launch and low spin.

Combined with the new Diamond Face technology, the back weight and dual carbon sole of the 2020 EXS fairway metals are designed to produce increased distance gains as well as maximum forgiveness due to the substantially increase M.O.I of the clubhead.

The jump in M.O.I as well as the enhanced C.G. position in Tour Edge’s new fairway metals is primarily due to the dual carbon fiber placements featured in the heel and toe as well a new larger 6-gram weight placed in the rear of the clubhead. The addition of both has helped to create extreme weight savings that could be then repositioned for added forgiveness.

As well as the 6-gram back weight, the EXS fairway metals also facilitate 3 grams, 9 grams, 11 grams and 14 grams to help players dial in their preferred swing weight and trajectory.

Along with the new Diamond Face technology which is designed to provide players with a sweet spot that is extended higher on the toe, heel and center of the face, the EXS 220 fairway metals also feature a SlipStream Sole. The SlipStream Sole contains wider speed channels in a bid to create faster clubhead speed due to smoother turf interaction.

A Sound Diffusion bar has also been implemented to offer a fairway metal with optimal acoustics.

Three 3-Woods will be offered in the EXS 220 fairway metal line-up, 13.5, 15 and 16.5-degree models, while there will also be an 18-degree 5-Wood and 21-degree 7-Wood available. The left-handed 3-Wood is offered as a 15-degree option.

The stock shaft option for the new EXS 220 fairway is based in line with swing speed for optimal fitting with the metals 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 EXS 220 Fairway arrives at retail on February 1, 2020, and are priced at $249.99.

Tour Edge EXS 220 Hybrid

The amped-up Exotics EXS 220 hybrid contains a lighter 450-Hyper-Steel/360-degree Cup Face design which features Tour Edge’s Diamond Face Technology – 44 different thick and thin diamond shapes behind the face of the hybrid for a substantially bigger sweet spot.

Tour Edge’s EXS 220 hybrid also contains a new M.O.I. raising shape that is deeper from face to back and an adjustable 4-gram back weight designed to provide a more stable and forgiving hybrid design. The brand’s hybrids include additional weights in 7 grams and 10 grams to help dial in the preferred swing weight and trajectory.

The EXS 220 hybrid features a raised C.G. which has been achieved through indents on the heel and toe on the sole of the clubhead, allowing weight to be strategically positioned in a bid to reduce spin.

The indents on the new Tour Edge hybrid act as thicker area weight pads positioned from the weight savings of the lighter face. Combined with the Slipstream Sole in the hybrid which features wider channels, the EXS 220 hybrid is designed so the center of the sole engages into the turf, lowering the leading edge at impact for more solid contact.

Just as with the EXS 220 fairway, Tour Edge’s new hybrid also features a new Sound Diffusion bar which looks to enhance the all-round acoustics of the club.

The EXS 220 Hybrid comes in a #2/17-degree, #3/19-degree, #4/22-degree, #5/25-degree and #6/28-dergee models, with each stock shaft option based in line with swing speed for optimal fitting. Here are the following hybrid shafts for golfers in each category:

  • 85 MPH or Below KBS TGI Tour Graphite: 50g Ladies | 60g A-Flex
  • 85-95 MPH KBS TGI Tour Graphite: 70g Regular | 80g Stiff
  • 95 MPH or Above Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black: 6.0 Stiff | 6.5 X-Stiff

The EXS 220 hybrid comes to retail on February 1, 2020, and costs $199.99.
