Our Review:The Exotics line is known as Tour Edge’s high-tech luxury brand, but the EXS costs more than $200 less than comparable models. Still, the EXS checks off an admirable technology roster: a weight-saving carbon-composite crown and sole panel that push mass low and deep for forgiveness, low spin and high launch. There’s also a variable-thickness face to enhance ball speed on mis-hits. Finally, movable sole weights and an adjustable hosel let you manage spin and direction among 16 settings.
Specs: 9.5, 10.5 (adjustable +/- 2 degrees)

lowThe carbon-fiber clubhead produces the soft, duller sound that I like, and there’s no discernible vibration.
midThe EXS is one of the easier drivers for launching the ball in the air, and the ball flight was easy to control.
highMy drives had consistently low spin with high trajectory—the formula for distance.
