Tour Edge Exotics XCG-V Hybrid
From Golf Magazine (Buyer's Guide, May 2009)
It's for: All handicap levels
• The titanium crown, face and front half of the sole are bonded to a V-shaped, high-density steel in the rear of the sole.
• Using a titanium hosel rather than steel (as in XCG) frees up 30 grams that's placed in the sole. This contributes to lower spin rates and hotter launch.
• Sixty percent of the head's total weight is in the back half of the sole (the lighter-colored, V-shaped area).
• The large titanium cup face (25 percent bigger than the XCG hybrid) shifts added weight low and to the heel and toe.
