Tour Edge Exotics XCG 5 Driver

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

The Exotics line from Tour Edge is one of the most underated club lines on the market.  Sure, their fairway woods get a lot of attention but rarely do we see guys gaming anything else.  This is a shame because the same technology that makes the fairway woods so great is incorporated to some degree in the remaining clubs in the Exotics family.  Hopefully the new Exotics XCG 5 Driver helps break this unfortunate pattern.  The XCG 5 Driver is offered in two distinct weight categories, a lightweight version for raw distance and a slightly heavier model for control.  They both feature Tour Edge’s patented combo brazing technology which allows engineers to have a seamless weld between the face of the driver and the crown which helps to free up weight in the clubhead.  The weight savings allows for more weight to be placed low and in the perimeter of the clubhead for an increased MOI and faster ball speeds.  When compared to other Exotics drivers, the XCG 5 features a 12% larger face for added forgiveness and a visibly sloped crown and sole for enhanced aerodynamics.  The XCG 5 will hit the door mid-November, pre-book your new driver today!
