TECH TALK: The head features three separate materials: titanium body and face, carbon-fiber crown and sole pieces, and tungsten inserts in the rear sole. The mix of heavy tungsten and light carbon helps lower the CG so players can launch the ball higher with less spin. All parts are joined by a brazing technique that saves weight compared with traditional welding methods. The face has thicker areas shaped like a boomerang to optimize springlike effect and feel.
L: "Perfect look. Very little sidespin. Tough to miss fairways with this."
M: "The ball launches high, gets up there, and keeps on going. The look, swingweight, balance and feel are all great. It sounds like a cannon blast. But for this kind of distance, it'd be worth getting used to."
HOT: Tour Edge's Exotics line keeps pushing the possibilities of material combinations and manufacturing efforts. We applaud the effort to bring a sub-280-gram version with a 46-gram shaft.
NOT: The sound is clangy for some.
