Hot Launch E523
WHAT IT DOES: To offer more help, the E523 uses a shallow face height to encourage a higher launch, and the hollow-body design takes that a step further by placing weight low. The offset design helps counter the slice to some degree, too. The lofts are a little weaker than other Tour Edge irons because this player needs more help getting the ball in the air compared to the extra yards that might come from stronger lofts. The hidden hero, however, is the new back badge or, more precisely, the removal of it. Now a cap covers a hollow area filled with a thermoplastic polyurethane to help dampen sound and provide a cleaner look.
WHY WE LIKE IT: The previous version of this iron was bulkier than most golfers prefer. To aid the aesthetic, Tour Edge slimmed the topline slightly and made the backside less visible at address. Tour Edge also redesigned the sole. Gone is the keel that protruded from the bottom and in its place is a sole that has plenty of weight low and back to help shots get airborne. This is Tour Edge at its roots: helping average golfers play better at a price point that won’t result in a lengthy negotiation with your significant other. Read more>>
