Tour Edge has designed the new Exotics EXd irons for golfers who are looking for more distance and forgiveness.
Cast from 431 stainless steel, these irons feature the largest unsupported face Tour Edge has ever designed. The face also has been designed to be thicker in some areas and thinner in others to maximize the springboard effect and help the hitting area flex more effectively at impact for more ball speed and distance.
The 3-. 4-, and 5-irons have also been given stronger lofts (18-, 20, and 23-degrees, respectively) with a lower center of gravity (CG) position to make it easier to hit high, soft landing shots. The CG position progresses higher in the mid- and short irons to create more controllable, accurate shots.
A high-density tungsten weight has been positioned in the heel and toe to increase the moment of inertia (MOI) can provide additional stability on off-center hits. The weights also should help to protect ball speed on shots hit outside the sweet spot, increasing forgiveness.
To enhance feel and sound, a thermoplastic elastomer-encased insert has been positioned in a cavity behind the hitting area.
The Tour Edge Exotics EXd irons will cost $599.99 (4-AW) and come standard with KBS Tour 90 steel shafts or $699.99 with UST Mamiya Recoil graphite shafts.
