Tour Edge unveils new Exotics C721 and E721 irons



Tour Edge has today unveiled the all-new Exotics 721 Series irons: the C721 iron and the E721 iron.

The Exotics 721 irons are designed to provide every level of golfer two extreme distance irons and are led by the brand’s new Diamond Face 2.0 and Vibrcor technology for irons that combine full-face forgiveness and ball speed with optimal sound and feel.

Speaking on the technology featured in both sets of irons, Tour Edge founder and President David Glod said

“Vibrcor is a new technology that enhances speed and feel in a major way. With the dual placement of Vibrcor inside of the hollow-body pocket of the C721 and the undercut pocket of the E721, we’re able to provide the best of both worlds; perimeter weighted forgiveness and distance with the feel of a forged muscle-back.

“We’ve also brought Diamond Face technology to irons for the first time ever with this release. We were able to cover the entire iron face with up to 100 diamond shapes behind the face in our thinnest iron face ever produced.”

Tour Edge Exotics C721 iron

Designed as a players distance iron, the new C721 from Tour Edge features a smaller, more classic shape, more traditional lofts, and a thinner topline.

The Exotics C721 iron consists of an ultra-light TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) injected into the hollow-body pocket to create new speed-inducing and feel-enhancing technology: Vibrcor.

The proprietary Vibrcor TPU is strategically placed in two places within the iron in a bid to create a feel-enhancing internal technology with perimeter weighting around the entire clubhead aimed at providing maximum forgiveness and power off the face.

Vibrcor performance TPU is injected into the hollow-body cavity and works in partnership with an extremely thick, yet light Viebcor layer designed to further aid the clubhead’s feel and produce faster ball speed off the face while dampening shock at impact. 

The hollow-body design with dual Vibrcor infusions delivers a low CG (center of gravity), which bids to aid with launch, distance, and overall playability. It also adds 12 grams of weight to the low end of the clubhead, increasing deflection, which is designed to create an explosive spring effect off the face.

The Exotics C721 iron features full-face Diamond Face 2.0 technology; the first time Tour Edge has employed Diamond Face technology in an iron.

There are a total of 92 diamond shapes that cover the entire face of the C721 iron. The different diamond shapes of variable face thickness behind the face act as mini-trampolines to create faster ball speeds and expand the sweet spot to the outer areas of the face. 

Diamond Face 2.0 features three different thicknesses in an interweaving pattern and features a face thickness reduction of 29 percent.

This increase in Diamond Face coverage to the extreme heel and toe is designed to dramatically increases ball speed on off-center hits. The decrease in the face’s overall thickness also saved five grams of weight that was relocated to the lowest part of the clubhead.

The iron features a two-piece cast body with a forged high-strength military-grade maraging steel face that is plasma-welded onto a 17-4 stainless steel body.

This ultra-high-strength steel is used in aerospace, with landing gear, helicopter undercarriages, slat tracks and rocket motor cases and other applications requiring a high strength-to-weight material.

The L-Cup Face acts as a hinge designed to improve accuracy and protect ball speed on off-center hits.

A thinner leading edge on the new iron aims to provide a dramatic spring-effect throughout the face for added forgiveness on miss-hits either off the toe or the heel. The hollow-body iron design of the Exotics C721 iron aims to provide the best in perimeter weighting. 

The hollow body design creates distance and forgiveness, and when combined with Vibrcor, it bids to achieve a player’s distance iron with the feel and control of a forged iron. In addition, the Notch Hosel on the iron head allows for easier bending +/- 3-degrees for enhanced custom fitting, while SpeedTested shafts allow for optimal shaft fitting.

Tour Edge Exotics E721 iron

The extreme game improvement distance Exotics E721 Iron is designed with a larger footprint and a wider sole that utilizes hollow-body Vibrcor and Diamond Face 2.0 technology.

The Exotics E721 Iron utilizes a high-grade TPU strategically placed in the deep 360-degree undercut pocket to create the new speed-inducing and feel-enhancing technology: Vibrcor.

A second TPU is encapsulated in the steel-covered cavity insert that works in partnership with the extremely thick, yet light Vibrcor layer to further aid the clubhead’s feel in design to produce faster ball speed and to dampen sound and shock. This dual Vibrcor treatment aims to create an iron offering the feel of a full-flush cavity iron in a sleek, extremely long, and forgiving iron head.

The E721 iron also features Diamond Face 2.0 technology with 103 diamond shapes to the extreme heel and toe of the thinner face aiming to dramatically increase ball speed on off-center hits.

The E721 design is a 1-piece high-strength steel body with a 360-degree Undercut Design aimed at lowering the CG to produce a higher launch and increased face flexing, ball speed and overall distance across the entire face.

Extreme toe weighting on the Exotics E721 iron elongates the sweet spot in design for added forgiveness. Simultaneously, the lower and deeper CG allowed the E721 irons to be power-lofted to create distance and lower spin rates while achieving the same launch characteristics as a standard lofted iron. 

The notch hosel allows for easier bending +/- 3 degrees, while each shaft has been SpeedTested for optimal custom shaft pairing.

    The E721 6 iron has the loft of my 4 and since the target player would probably have difficulty hitting anything less than 24* from the fairway, would probably wind up with more irons with letters than numbers. Loft jacking is getting ridiculous!

    Really enjoy all the Golfwrx content. However can never understand why someone with golf experience writing these articles do not include a picture of what irons (or any club they are writing about) look like at address? It’s the most important photo and left out most of the time.

    Pretty mediocre offerings
    What is their advantage over established OEM’s with this offering?….not much that I can see
    A non event launch of a middle of the road generic iron…

    “…is designed to dramatically increases ball speed…

    If you want to be taken at all seriously please provide supporting data. (GolfWRX should demand it.)

    “…with the feel of a forged muscle-back.

    Anybody who is interested in these most likely has no idea what a forged muscle back, centre-face strike, feels like.

    I continue to be disappointed by Easy’s decision to cap the journalist’s salaries at such a low level.

    Looks like a generic catalogue club builder set. Shocked they still have that dismal logo as well.

    I like the look of these better than t100

    Those aren’t traditional lofts. Not even close.

    As someone with TEE irons, a driving iron, and 3 wood, I’m obviously a fan. But Jesus, whoever is in charge of design the last 2 years needs to go. They were on a roll with the CBX lineup, but for some reason they killed it and then they went full on box set from a visual standpoint. That logo is butt ugly. Forward this to David Glodd.

      Yep the visuals definitely have the “$150 generic brand set” look to them.

2021 TaylorMade Spider X, EX, S, and SR putters offer improved roll, feel, and forgiveness



Building putters is about creating options and incorporating technology. For TaylorMade’s all-new Spider putters for 2021—including the Spider X Hydro Blast, EX, Spider S, and SR—it’s the little details that make big differences.

“With this new class of Spider putters, we focused on removing two of those variables: aim and alignment … While each putter brings something unique to the table, they are bonded by a foundation of forgiveness, stability, and True Path alignment that makes it easier to aim.” – Bill Price, Product Creation, Putters & Wedge

The idea of a “classic” golf club or putter shape won’t generally have people reminiscing about a TaylorMade Spider, but the design has been around for well over a decade—and although it has gone through some design tweaks over the years, the modern Spider is here to stay

Spider X Hydro Blast

This putter is all about small changes to an already great design with the most notable being the Hydro Blast finishing process. The new Spider X also features

  • The classic Spider X head shape, available in both a face-balanced double-bend and a smaller slant neck with 21 degrees of toe hang.
  • Multimaterial construction to offer maximum stability and increased MOI.
  • White True Path for a high-contrast look that is easy to align

Availability and Price

Preorder for the Spider X Hydro Blast starts today, March 2, with putters arriving at retail starting March 12 with a price of $279.99.

The new Spider X will be available in stock lengths of 33″, 34″, and 35″ be completed with a KBS Chrome C-Taper Stepless shaft and Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip.

Spider EX

With the Spider EX, TaylorMade is flexing its putter design capabilities when it comes to face technology to improve roll and feel. The Spider EX features a new co-molded insert made of white TPU urethane and small aluminum beams angled at 45°. This combination of materials gets the ball up and rolling quicker and also creates a soft yet solid feel to improve player feedback.

Speaking of feedback and feel the Spider EX has a newly designed “Fluted feel” shaft with a more flexible portion starting 5″ below the tip to add stability while also maintaining a softer feel through the stroke,  and is slightly larger than the Spider X to increase MOI.

Availability and price

Preorder for the Spider EX starts today, March 2, with putters arriving at retail starting March 12 with a price of $349.99 – See chart for full color availability.

The stock options will include lengths of  33″, 34″, and 35″, the TaylorMade Fluted Feel shaft and to top it off a Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip.

Spider S and SR

It’s about options and alignment. The Spider S uses geometry and topline sights to help golfers who prefer to use the width of the ball for accurate sighting.

The Spider S also offers the same Fluted Feel shaft and white TPU Pure roll insert to create a soft feel.

The Spider SR is the “Stability Monster” of the 2021 TaylorMade putter lineup and utilizes multiple weights around the head to raise MOI.

While the Spider S’s alignment system is for players who use the front of the putter, the SR places the True path alignment away from the face and between the wings. This allows golfers to use the clean topline and parallel wings to line up to the intended path while still offering a visual aid to behind the ball.

Availability and Price

The Spider S and SR putters will be available for preorder March 2 and will land at retail beginning April 9, with a price of $279.99. The stock configurations will include lengths of 33″, 34″, and 35 and they will be completed with a TaylorMade Fluted Feel shaft and to topped with a Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip.

‘Can’t seem to chip with forged wedges’ – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been trying to help out WRXer ‘RkoDavey’, who is struggling to chip with forged wedges. ‘RkoDavey’ kicks off the thread saying:

“For most of my golfing life, I’ve struggled to chip with my sand wedge but usually have no trouble when I use my gap wedge, and I’m starting to wonder if this is related to my equipment. My gap wedge is part of my P790 iron set, but no sand wedge is available, so I play an Adams Tom Watson forged 56-degree wedge (bounce is 13 degrees).

 I can’t tell you how many times I chunk little greenside chips with my Adams wedge, but if I chip with my gap wedge, the club seems to glide right through the turf, and I have much better results. My problems arise when I have little green to work with and need the ball to stop quick–my gap wedge simply isn’t the right tool for that type of shot.”

And he poses two questions for fellow members to help him out:

“First, is there something about forged wedges that makes them radically different from your typical gap wedge that comes with a set of irons? I had this same issue with the previous irons I owned, and I wonder if it’s my equipment or if it’s all in my head.

Second, what recommendations can you give for a 55 or 56-degree sand wedge that will perform similar to my gap wedge?”

Our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • IPA4me: “Check the bounce. Also, consider cavity back wedges for the added forgiveness.”
  • mootrail: “You’re comparing your super hot face hollow body set wedge to an ancient stamping with zero modern wedge design parameters. They might be perfectly fine for some, but the first thing to do is to toss them out. There are a few hollow body wedges out there, but it’s your swing and conditions first. You need to get to the shop and test them out.”
  • jomatty: “I’d check the leading edge between the two clubs.”

GtiClay WITB

“I used to do the WITB more often here. It’s been a REALLY long time. Maybe more than 10 years, and I, unfortunately have only 1 year where I played more than 20 rounds in a year since then. I’m gonna play more… a lot more in the coming years as I’m turning 48 this year and want to have a damn good birthday week at Bandon when I turn 50.

My goal is sub 5 handicap by then. I have still been mostly playing i3 blades and TM 300s. But I want to convert to ‘legal grooves’, so I just picked up my first new set of irons in maybe 15 years. The i210’s… so here’s my current WITB.”

Driver: TaylorMade M4 (10.5 degrees turned a bit to “lower” as I like a slightly open face at address)
Shaft: Ozik Matrix 80M Black Tie X @ 44.5″

3-wood: TaylorMade R9 paintbreak TI (15 degrees)
Shaft: Tipped Ozik Matrix 80M Black Tie X

5-wood: Tour Edge Exotics “ladies edition” (18 degrees)
Shaft: Tipped OG Aerotech SS85 X

Irons: Ping i210 (3-9i)
Shafts: KBS Tour 130X

Wedges: Ping Glide 3.0 46 @ 47*, 54 @ 53*
Shafts: KBS Tour 130X

Callaway PM grind 60*, shaft TBD

(note – this is cold weather setup.  I plan to drop the 3 wood and add my 2019 PM grind 58* and 64* with S400 when it warms up and I need it.)

Putter: Scotty Cameron JAT, TaylorMade Ghost Marenello 355g, both at 34″.

The JAT is somewhere else and due to Covid I haven’t been able to get it, but as soon as I can, I’ll put it into play.

Grip: Stock Pistol

Golf Ball: I love the Callaway HX balls in the wind, but will play most any premium urethane ball that is on sale.

Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord BCT midsize with 2x extra tape.

Get submitting your WITB in our forum as we’ll be publishing more and more of them on our front page over the coming days and weeks.
