Tour Edge’s Affordable Golf Quality

2016 Buyer's Guide

Tour Edge


The Exotics EX9 and EX9 Tour’s new Full-­Speed Impact design maximizes club head speed through a sloped crown and a subtle sole design optimizing weight distribution. The EX9 models are available in four clubheads, and feature adjustability options including loft, lie angles, and an interchangeable sole weight. The drivers encompass ideal sound, exceptional control, and explosive distance cultivating the best Exotics driver ever. “On the new EX9 models we moved the center of gravity much deeper in the head for super high MOI numbers,” said David Glod, president and founder of Tour Edge Golf. “This translates into our lowest spinning drivers to date and a greatly increased sweet zone for longer drives from all areas on the face.” The drivers feature a 6A4V titanium construction and a new Hexagonal variable face thickness technology. The custom Hexagonal configuration offers multiple levels of thickness for superior launch speed from more points on the face, especially in the heel and toe areas. The standard driver is a 460cc draw-enhancing clubhead available in 10 and 12 degrees designed to deliver forgiving, high-­flying drives.The Pro is a pear-­shaped, 430cc head, 9 or 10 degrees, with a deeper face to deliver Exotics legendary low-­spin power and faster ball speeds. Both models include the newly designed hosel allowing players to change launch conditions using eight settings and adding or subtracting up to one degree of loft. This advanced versatility gives players the ultimate control in achieving optimal distance and ball flight. The Full-­Speed Impact design is highlighted in the 460cc model by a new aerodynamic sloping of the crown reducing drag and generating faster club speed for maximum distance. The power grid removes weight close to the face and repositions it in the rear portion of the sole, promoting higher launch conditions. An interchangeable sole weight head helps players optimize the club’s performance; a heel weight helps golfers find the fairway with a draw, and the rear center sole weight is specifically located for a higher MOI and lower spin. The standard 6-­gram heel weight screw is housed in an 8-­gram weight pad for 14 grams of sole weighting.

Additional weight screws can be purchased as a kit or individually. The kit includes 3-­gram, 9-­gram and 11-­gram weights to increase or decrease the swing weight. $299.99/$399.99

Exotics EX9 Fairway metals

Three models, three ways to pump up your fairway metals game: Tour Edge has long excelled at producing groundbreaking yet affordable clubs in this class, and the Exotics EX9 is no exception. Its new Full-Speed Impact design maximizes club head speed through a sloped crown and the Exotics’ famous SlipStream sole, whose wavy finish is both distinctive and functional on all turfs and lies. An interchangeable heel weight offers players of all abilities the added benefit of draw enhancement for legendary Exotics length and control. The first property of the new design in the EX9 clubhead is a sloping crown that reduces aerodynamic drag resulting in added speed at impact for maximum distance. The power grid moves weight close to the face and repositions it in the rear portion of the sole, promoting higher launch conditions. The EX9 also utilizes exclusive “robotic laser beam bonding” technology to adhere the Carpenter 475 cup face to the hyper-steel body. This provides flawless seams ensuring the tightest tolerances for exceptional performance. The EX9’s interchangeable heel weight and offers players the added benefit of draw enhancement. Available in 13, 15, and 17 degree 150cc heads, the EX9 Tour model also offers an adjustable hosel system, allowing players change launch conditions using eight settings and adding or subtracting one degree of loft. Finally, the Exotics EX9 Long is sure to resonate with players who want the accuracy of a 3-wood and the distance of a driver. It’s highlighted by a deeper face for even greater spring-like effect, and a 185cc clubhead for confidence in every shot. The Tour Edge R&D team paired the prominent clubhead with a 43.5 inch shaft to deliver driver-like distance.

Tour Edge


Each of Tour Edge’s three new player-friend irons brings it own mix of superlatives to the table — rather, the fairway. The EXd for mid-handicappers and EXi for better players who want more workability (both $599.99) are variations on Tour Edge’s “thin-faced, low CG” theme. The EXd has the largest free-standing face with the deepest undercut cavity ever by Exotics. The face is hot and able to flex more at impact for big distance. The 431 stainless steel irons feature a generous offset design for added forgiveness helping players return to square at impact. The long irons have stronger lofts with low Center of Gravity (CG) positioning for huge distances. The EXi irons, meanwhile, feature a more traditional shape with less offset, engineered for maximum feel and control with distance. The combination of a dual undercut cavity for a deeper center of gravity, and the new Power Grid achieves a very thin sole behind the face. The Variable Face Thickness (VFT) design produces greater spring effect and forgiveness on more areas of the face. The CB PRO Tungsten irons ($799.99) combine hollow construction with progressive tungsten sole weighting designed for forgiveness, control, and distance. Each CB PRO is hollow from the top line all the way to the sole producing a more active face. The top line is thicker, but the progressive set allows players to shape shots more than with traditional cavity-back irons. They feature a heavy, solid piece of W-Ni tungsten in the sole; it’s heavier in the short irons and progressively moves through the set varying in weight from 95 to 90 grams.
