Tour Edge Exotics EX10 driver: Preview, photos, specs, release date

Tour Edge Golf has had a cult winner for years with its Exotics EX line, and the EX10 series debuts in 2017, starting with a new driver.

The Exotics EX10 driver uses the lightweight 8-1-1 titanium chassis found standard in the company's higher-end drivers, enlarging the face plate in this driver with TSP 910 Beta Ti. The end result is more forgiveness with a larger overall sweet spot.

Using the two materials combined freed up 19 grams of weight that was placed in the back sole of the driver, with a 10-gram weight housed in a 9-gram port. As is common with Tour Edge, an optional weight kit is available with 6-, 12- and 14-gram replacement weights.

The head has been redesigned with four speed channels on the sole and a more tapered head profile to improve aerodynamic performance. The crown slopes more that the previous generation to generate more ball speed.

There are 10- and 12-degree heads, each boasting a new adjustable hosel that allows players to change loft up and down by 2 degrees.

The stock shaft offerings include the Aldila Rogue Max series, Graphite Design Tour AD50 and
Mitsubishi Bassara E-Series. For no upcharge, golfers can get the Project X Hzrdus series, Mitsubishi Rayon Tensei CK Blue series, Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana series, Exotics Fujikura Pro series, Exotics Matrix Tie series and Aldila Rogue Silver & Black series installed instead.

The Tour Edge Exotics EX10 driver is available for order for $350, projected to ship on Feb. 1.
