2014 Hotlist Hybrids: TOUR EDGE EXOTICS XCG7

TOUR EDGE EXOTICS XCG7/XCG7 BETA

STREET PRICE: $160/$200
LOFTS: 19, 22, 25, 28 for the XCG7; 17, 19, 22, 25 for the XCG7 Beta

TECH TALK: The XCG7 has four weight pads farther back in the sole to increase stability on mis-hits. The XCG7 Beta, which uses a thin, lightweight beta-titanium crown, has four weights pads farther forward to lower trajectory and control spin. Both have a cupface construction and a waffled grid section in the sole to improve the way the face gives on contact.

PLAYER COMMENTS:
L: "It feels well-balanced throughout the swing, and it produces a superior flight."
M: "The front-to-back and heel-to-toe proportions are ideal, and it makes a full sound at impact."

HOT: A significant one-two punch, and both models have impressive variable-thickness faces.
NOT: The logo on the crown distracted some testers.
