Exotics C723 / Exotics E723

Hot List Silver 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: For two different looking hybrids, these two share all the right technologies for making shots fly farther, higher and faster. Each uses a lightweight carbon-composite piece to cover the crown. This helps lower the center of gravity for improved launch. A high-strength steel face insert and a crosshatch pattern of different-size diamond shapes behind the face create additional flexibility. Finally, each model puts a 10-gram weight on the sole: It’s forward on the compact, better-player focused C723 for less spin and a medium launch, and on the E723 that weight is toward the back for additional stability on off-center hits. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: With all the impressive technology here, it might seem boring to talk about sole geometry, but hear us out. The keel-like shape to the bottom of these clubs benefits in multiple ways. The shape and the extreme heel and toe relief allow these heads to easily carve their way through the turf, and the sheer surface area lowers the CG to help golfers get the ball in the air. It might not be the sexiest attribute, but is there anything hotter than hitting and holding a green from more than 200 yards? We didn’t think so.  Read more>>

Which One's For Me?
Exotics C723
The C723's ultra-compact shape and square toe is designed for those competitive players who like to hit their hybrids with more of an iron-like swing. Players with higher swing speeds will be more successful with this style, and will benefit from its lower spin and flatter trajectory profile.
Exotics E723
The E723's larger footprint is more conducive to providing the forgiveness and higher launch that most average golfers need from their long-iron replacement clubs. For faster swing speeds, shots should spin a little more with this club than with the C723. Less consistent players will benefit from its larger, more forgiving face.

Player Comments
"I like the fact there's options based on clubhead shape to appeal to anything you like. The compact head, I really liked the shallow face but long at the toe, so it looks like it'll be more forgiving than a traditional utility iron." Really crisp sound, a pure crispness off the face. Sometimes hybrids can sound hollowy like a drum, this one didn't feel that at all. The gear effect really wants to straighten out your shots. I loved that.

"Head is a little on the bulbous side for a hybrid. Simple profile and shallow face are comforting. Easy to hit, distance is longer than you'd expect. Does the job of the hybrid, keeps the ball safe and in play."
Handicap, 9
"The C723 had a compact head, but it was not intimidating to hit. Nice and square at address. High pitched sound, still felt good coming off the face. Mid-flight with a good amount of distance."
