Tour Edge

Exotics C721

Our Review:

The face of a driver is where the action is, but getting it to flex effectively is more than just making it thin. That’s why the variable-thickness design behind the face of this driver is so important. Past Tour Edge drivers have used a series of interconnected diamond shapes to increase ball speed. This model takes this concept and multiplies it. The rows of interconnected diamond shapes behind the beta-titanium face now vary in seven thicknesses. This pattern expands the area of the face with the hottest ball speed for more distance on mis-hits, but the new construction also saves five grams. The use of carbon-fiber panels that wrap around the crown and down into the heel, toe and sole save even more weight. This allowed designers to place a 10-gram weight at the rear of the clubhead to provide maximum stability on off-center hits while lowering the center of gravity. The result is less spin and a higher ball flight. Finally, a ridge of titanium stretches across the crown from front to back for face support and extra pop at impact.

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper

Sound and vibrations at impact are nicely muted. Feels smooth throughout the backswing. Great weighting and easy to keep on line. Good carry and felt like even my misses were not that far off.

Mid-Handicapper

Maybe unconventional look with carbon fiber but very focusing. Good swings are heavily rewarded. Ball jumped. Very consistent.

High-Handicapper

I hit this consistently straight with a high trajectory. The clubhead
feels lightweight, but the weight at impact is solid, so you feel the energy.
