Tour Edge Exotics Xrail

Although it’s not the biggest golf manufacturer around, Tour Edge created a fairway wood, the Exotics XCG5, that Golf Magazine ClubTesters rated as one of the best fairways of 2012, scoring it highly in the feel, accuracy and distance categories. So, Tour Edge's latest fairway wood, the just-released Exotics Xrail, has a tough act to follow.

Like previous Exotics fairway woods, the Xrail is made from stainless steel and has a face insert that is thicker in the center and thinner near the edges to help maintain ball speed on off-center hits. What makes the Xrail different than its processor is it V-shaped sole. The bottom of the club is designed to work through grass and the turf more effectively, minimize divots, and lower the club's center of gravity to help the ball get airborne more easily.

Tour Edge says that the club has 15 percent more weight in the heel and toe areas than the XCG5, which should raise the Xrail's moment of inertia (MOI) and make the club more forgiving on off-center hits.

The Xrail is available in 13°, 15°, 16.5°, 18° and 21° lofts and comes standard with a Graphite Design G-Series 60 graphite shaft for $179.
