First Look: Tour Edge Exotics EXi, EXd and CB Pro Tungsten Irons


Tour Edge Exotics EXi irons

$599 steel, $699 graphite;

Featuring a fairly traditional profile with minimal offset, the EXi irons are built with a dual undercut cavity that produces a low and deep CG location for enhanced forgiveness on off center hits. The undercut cavity is combined with a slot in the sole of each iron that increases face flex at impact, producing more ball speed, higher launch angles, and more carry distance. A variable face thickness design also contributes to more spring like effect across a larger area of the clubface than past Exotics models while a new cavity insert helps damped vibration for a softer, more pleasing feel. The EXi irons are also available as a combo set with 3 and 4 hybrids.

Two tungsten weight, located in the heel and toe areas, further increase MOI and forgiveness on off center hits. A soft insert in the cavity of each iron improves feel while also dampening unwanted vibration. The EXd irons are also available as a combination set with hybrids.

Tour Edge Exotics CB Pro Tungsten irons

$799 steel, $899 graphite;

An all-hollow design with very thin clubfaces makes the new Exotics CB Pro Tungsten irons easy to hit and long for anyone looking for max game improving performance.

The heavy tungsten sole coupled with a user-friendly round shape allow the CB Pro Tungsten irons to pass through a wide variety of turf conditions easily while also promoting higher launch angles, more carry, and softer landings.
