The Verdict: 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.
