Tour Edge launches new Hot Launch E522 and C522 metalwoods

Published

on

Tour Edge has today announced the launch of its new Hot Launch E522 and C522 metalwoods, featuring extreme MOI properties with a major emphasis on ease of launch, playability while correcting mishits and slices to go straighter.

Hot Launch E522 Metalwoods

The new metalwoods from Tour Edge contain Houdini Sole technology, with the design pushing weight back as much as is possible in a driver design, according to the company. 

This design creates extra mass, which helped Tour Edge engineers to position weight in the head for an ultra-low and deep CG, optimizing launch conditions in design to provide maximum forgiveness off the face.

The Hot Launch E522 metals feature Diamond Face 2.0 technology with 42 different thick and thin diamond shapes behind the face of the metals in design to offer an enhanced sweet spot.

The Diamond shapes of varying thickness create “mini-trampolines” behind the face, combining with a Cup Face construction that seeks to produce greater face flex, faster ball speeds and better performance on off-center hits.

The offset design of the metalwoods is combined with a sole heel weight in design to provide ultimate slice fighting technology.

In addition, the strategically placed heel draw-bias weighting of the E range allows the face to square up at impact in a bid to offer straighter ball flight that helps right-handed golfers avoid the right side of the course, and left-handed golfers avoid the left side of the course.

The super-shallow face design also seeks to produce higher launch angles with extreme ease of launch. Led by its extremely high MOI rating, the E range metals from Tour Edge are designed to be extremely stable and powerful. This increased MOI aims to both increase ball speed on mishits while keeping shots straighter, with the back and low CG positioning also helping to provide greater launch.

Tour Edge’s new E522 metalwoods also feature Control Length shafts that have been optimized with shorter shaft lengths that were designed specifically for the E range metals to greatly improve accuracy, control and to offer maxed out Smash Factor ratings for the clubhead.

Hot Launch C522 Metalwoods

The C522 metalwoods feature the same Diamond Face Technology as in the E522 woods, while a back weight is strategically placed to the extreme rear of the C522 driver, fairway, and hybrid. 

The extreme rear weight is housed in an all-new Deep CG Casing that places more mass at the extreme trailing edge of the clubhead. The back weight and Deep CG Casing creates an extremely high M.O.I. rating designed for top in-line stability, while the lower and deeper CG positioning of the club aims to affect ease of launch while offering forgiveness off the face at impact.

The C522 metalwoods offer upgraded acoustic engineering through Acoustic Resonance Channels (A.R.C.) Engineering. The A.R.C. sound channel system is a visible technology that can be seen on the sole of the clubhead. Internally, these channels bounce sound on the inside of the clubhead in design to provide excellent sound and feel.

In addition, the Power Channel on the sole of the club behind the clubface is deeper in a bid to provide better weight distribution and increased face flexing, while the Power Channel also seeks to deliver amplified ball speed, and less spin, as well as added forgiveness on shots struck lower on the face.

The C522 metalwoods from Tour Edge come stock with super-light Fubuki HL graphite shafts by Mitsubishi Chemical that range from 45-grams to 60-grams depending on the flex.

The new TourEdge metalwoods arrive at retail on October 1 and cost $249.99 for both the E and C drivers, $159.99 for both E and C fairway metals and $139.99 for the E and C hybrids.

    been playing Tour Edge drivers for over 6 years now the ES model from 3 years ago was very good, the newer 721 looks better but is not worth the $399 as proof only worth $100 as a trade in and still a newer model? Will be trying the new E522 only if Tour Edge offers the refund within 30 days…

    The golf equipment industry is ruining itself with all the jargon it uses. Strategically optimized face flexing forgiveness power channelled ball speed top in line stability blah blah. It’s becoming exhausting!

    I don’t know how to fix the over hyped marketing tactics besides maybe offering equipment that is designed to look great and equipment that performs well in tests. Does it really need all the weird terms describing so called “technology”? Are all of these technology claims proven somehow for the average golfer?

    Call me old fashioned, but I just have a desire for things to be simpler. I can’t be the only one!
