The latest release from Tour Edge is a limited-edition line dubbed Exotics Pro 721. And as that moniker suggests, these drivers, fairways and hybrids were developed with input from better players (i.e., PGA Tour professionals) for better players.
The forward shift of the center of gravity in these clubs, for example, was designed to accommodate players with faster clubhead speeds, so they could produce lower-spinning, more penetrating shots. As for the clubhead shapes, they were made more compact, with deeper faces that sit open at address for the Pro 721 drivers and fairways but are perfectly square for the hybrids.
Company engineers endowed the drivers and fairway metals with the Ridgeback support system, in which a ridgeback spine within the carbon fiber crown acts as a brace to generate more power on center hits and allow for more face flex in the heel and toe, so off-center strikes still go far and straight.
In addition, all three metals utilize Diamond Face 2.0 technology, with diamond shapes of various face thickness acting as mini trampolines to produce faster ball speeds and expand the sweet spot.
“We’ve become the leader in low-spin technology, and Pro 721 is taking that to a new level,” said Tour Edge founder and master club designer David Glod. “These designs lead to penetrating shots with extremely tight dispersion that maxes out distance, while still offering healthy launch angles.”
Clubs in the Pro 721 series range in price from $449.99 for the driver (which are available in lofts of 9.5 and 10.5 degrees, for right-handed players only), $299.99 for the fairway metals (#3/13.5 degrees, #3/15 degrees and #3/16.5 degrees, again for righties) and $249.99 for the hybrids (offered in lofts of 17, 18, 19 and 20 degrees).
All come stock with the Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw shafts, with blue, orange or white available for the drivers and fairways and blue or white available for the hybrids.
