Tour Edge Golf continues to make a name for itself in the fairway woods market with its long and accurate Exotics line. The company’s newest offerings in the line are the XCG7 and XCG7 Beta.
The XCG7 (suggested retail price $249.99), according to the company, features a lower profile and larger club head while the XCG7 Beta model (SRP $299.99) has a deeper face and a smaller club head that promotes a more boring trajectory.
Tour Edge said the XCG7 fairway reaches a high CT level using a new, streamlined brazing technique and a new more dense custom 465 forged maraging cup face. This new inner cup face construction method, according to Tour Edge, also enhances the spring-effect and distance. A callout to its name, the XCG7, Tour Edge said Beta features a forged beta titanium cup face for high COR. In each series, according to the company, the face is combo-brazed to the hyper-steel body.
Tour Edge said the Power Grid positioned directly behind the sweet spot creates an “accordion effect” and increased spring-effect by flexing at impact. The Power Grid, according to Tour Edge, alternates in thickness from 0.5mm to 1.0mm, allowing the thinner dimple-slots to flex, producing a hotter launch.
Hexahedron sole weight pads are positioned back in the heel and toe to increase MOI and maximize stability on off-center contact. In the XCG7 Beta, Tour Edge said the weight pad design positions more weight forward in the head, raising the center of gravity and producing a more penetrating trajectory.
The XCG7 fairway woods appearance is distinctive and easy to differentiate the two club heads. The XCG7 Beta’s chromatic medallion includes ‘Beta’ on the plate, and “Beta” appears in white on the hosel.
Each fairway wood is available with a Fujikura Fuel and Tour shafts as well as Matrix Ozik White, Red and Black shafts.
