Tour Edge Golf has had a cult winner for years with its Exotics EX line, and the EX10 series debuts in 2017 with a pair of fairway wood models: the EX10 and the EX10 Beta.
Tour Edge Exotics EX10 fairway woods
The Tour Edge Exotics EX10 fairway woods utilize a new high-density, Japanese-made HT 980 steel cup face with hexagonal variable face thickness, allowing the company to produce its thinnest fairway wood face yet. That face is bonded to a heavier steel body that moves the center of gravity low and deep with the help of a 9-gram changeable sole weight that's screwed into a 12-gram pad. This helps moment of inertia and launch conditions.
A separate weight kit includes 6-, 11- and 14-gram weights.
The EX10 fairway wood has a more sloping crown to reduce drag and offer weight savings, while four speed channels on the SlipStream sole help stabilize off-center hits. The sole features longer rails and shallower channels for better turf interaction.
A variety of shaft options are available without an upcharge, including the Aldila Rogue Max Series, Graphite Design Tour AD50, Mitsubishi Bassara E-Series as stock options, while custom builds area available with 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.
The Tour Edge Exotics EX10 fairway woods ship Feb. 1 and are available for $250 each in 13- (173 cc), 15- (165 cc), 16.5- (165 cc), 18- (158 cc) and 21- (150 cc) degree options.
Tour Edge Exotics EX10 Beta fairway woods
The EX10 Beta fairway wood utilizes a TSP 910 Beta titanium cup face, making Tour Edge the only OEM in the U.S. market to do that in a fairway wood, and giving the club a thinner and stronger face compared to the EX10. A new inner-cup face slot allows for increased face flexibility. The cup face is combo-brazed to the 450 SS hyper-steel body.
The EX10 Beta fairway wood has a low-and-deep center of gravity with some heel weighting, featuring a 9-gram changeable sole weight housed in a 9-gram weight pad. An additional weight kit is available separately.
The EX10 Beta features the same improved SlipStream sole as the EX10, as well the variety of stock and no-upcharge, custom-built premium shaft options.
The Tour Edge Exotics EX10 Beta fairway wood is available Feb. 1 for $300 each in 13-, 15-, 16.5-, 18- and 21- degree heads.
