TOUR EDGE EXOTICS EX9 TOUR

 

CATEGORY: Better Player Fairway Woods
PRICE: $300
WE TESTED: 15° (adjusts 14° to 16°), 17° (adjusts 16° to 18°) with Aldila Rogue Silver 60 and Mitsubishi Diamana Blue S+ 60 graphite shafts
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The 9-gram sole weight can be replaced by 6-, 11- or 14-gram weights.

PROS

PLAYABILITY: A real strong suit — the small head works beautifully off the turf or the tee and makes shaping shots simple; very consistent from the rough, and it rocks from the tough lies; launches baby draws all day.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Very consistent for a compact head — stable in any situation except the worst rough; directional misses are still playable, with only the worst mistakes winding up in trouble; retains distance on a typical off-center hit.
DISTANCE: One of the longest models tested — an absolute animal off the tee and a bomber into the par 5s; guys occasionally hit it longer than their own driver; testers’ current 3-woods had better find a new line of work — it’s that long.
FEEL: A tester favorite — fabulous, crisp, crunching sensation at impact; shots jump like they’re springing off a trampoline.
LOOK: Beautiful, compact, classic shape — testers find that it suits their eye; the wavy rails along the sole look cutting-edge.

CONS

Doesn’t land as softly when hit into the green as some others; lower ball flight than a few testers prefer; check this one out — the 15° model is actually longer than some guys prefer.

BOTTOM LINE: The Exotics EX9 Tour is one of the top Better Player fairway woods. It’s super-long, feels great and provides a good deal of playability from any number of lies.
