I’m a big fan of Tour Edge Golf’s Exotics line of drivers and metal woods. The Exotics XCG6 driver is no exception. The club looks good at address, sounds good and the ball flies off the club face with good speed and trajectory, although occasionally it will launch a little high.
The XCG6’s adjustable Flight Control Technology is easy to use and easy to spot the differences between the four face-angle/loft settings. That is, the ball reacts far differently when the driver is set for a draw than it does for a fade.
I know, that’s what it’s supposed to do, but some drivers do it better than others. The XCG6 is among the best. A word of advice: Set the driver to the “N” or neutral position on the SCT hosel to start and adjust from there. You might be surprised (I was) in the result, meaning you might not have to adjust from the neutral position.
The only downside to the XCG6 is the Graphite Design Tour AD shaft. There is nothing wrong with the shaft itself, understand, but at 42 grams, it’s too light for me. Actually that’s the same problem I have with the XCG series of fairway woods, too. It’s easily solved, however. I put in a 60-gram UST Pro Force shaft and had much better feel and control of the driver. The heavier shaft allows me to swing the XCG6 driver as hard as I want with more confidence.
Swing one for yourself. I think you’ll like the results.
