Tour Edge Exotics XCG-4 Hybrid

From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
We tested: 3h (19°), 4h (22°) and 5h (25°) with Fujikura Motore Exotics 75 graphite shaft

Key Technologies: A 133-gram tungsten sole plate shifts more weight back and below the center of the ball. The super-thin maraging steel cup face launches the ball higher and longer. Two internal weight pads help improve sound and feel.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Among the top performers in its class; excels in feel and distance.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Lower ball flight than most but enough height to hold greens; gets down to the ball and creates strong contact in a variety of lies, including rough.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Testers find its forgiveness to be typical of most hybrids.
DISTANCE: This is a hot one - several testers hit it longer than their own; greatest asset could be its ability to produce reliable distances.
FEEL: Crisp, clear feel on pure contact makes it easy to diagnose a mis-hit; well-balanced club; stronger swingers, in particular, embrace its heavier heft and sturdy impact feel.
LOOK: Standard appearance - compact black head with no alignment aid; no distractions.

CONS
Some higher handicappers prefer more forgiveness; fairly mundane appearance at address.
