Tour Edge Exotics XCG-3 Driver

From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, February 2010)

Category: Game-Improvement Drivers
We tested: 9°, 10.5° with Fujikura Motore graphite shaft

Company line: "It combines an aerospace titanium body, 28 grams of tungsten sole weight and a light, strong carbon crown. The outer edges of the clubface are thinner for a larger sweet spot, more ball speed and less variation between on- and off-center hits."

OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: Good launch and spin rate for a steeper swinger; regular flex shaft is stout and stands up to hard swings; hit it high on the face for best results; average to better-than-average distance on misses; stable through swing; pleasant acoustics; crisp, dense impact feel; conservative, conventional head shape.

CONS: Some guys have trouble squaring the face, resulting in weak fades; others find the club to be too long and light; seems to offer less correction on miss-hits.
