In true Exotics tradition, the phenomenal Tour Edge Exotics XCG-V Hybrid provides superior control and blistering distance in an attractive and sophisticate design. Featuring a four-way radius design, the XCG-V makes minimum ground contact and allows easier shots from all types of conditions.
Looking good in a lightweight titanium cup face, the XCG-V boasts of a no-weld technology whereby the V-shape face is combo-brazed to the hyper steel body and vacuum heat-cured for permanent bonding. This advanced innovation moves 66% of the club head’s weight to the sole, resulting in an ultra-high MOI and an extremely deep CG. This unrivalled technology squares the club face at impact with more force, yielding an improved launch and massive forgiveness. Sporting a face 25% larger than previous models, the XCG-V has an extremely low spin rate, produces explosive shots and unsurpassed yardage that is difficult to follow, especially when it is crafted using the variable face thickness (VFT) technology.
The unique titanium hosel shifts a further 30 grams of weight to the high-density steel sole for a more solid swing and playability whereby the XCG-V is an unbeatable wind-cheater. Built with pure Exotics sophistication, 80% of the XCG-V s total head weight is in the rear heel and toe of the sole. This set up is achieved by the heavy high-density steel sole plate. Weighing in at 184 grams, the unique v-shape sole shifts more weight to the rear corners of the club head for greater forgiveness. The resulting center of gravity angle is extremely deep and helps the club face square at impact with more force for a quick launch and longer, more accurate shots. The Tour Edge Exotics XCG-V Hybrid has the lowest, deepest CG (center of gravity) of any Exotics hybrid ever developed.
I have a 3 and 4. While expensive, these are great clubs. Very easy to hit and straight, unlike so many hybrids which tend to promote a hook.
I have been looking forward to testing the new AP (for Advanced Performance) line of irons from Titleist ever since I saw a sneak-peek of them online a while back. The hype preceding their release...
I tested the first generation Ping Rapture Hybrid a few moons back and was not particularly impressed. The folks at Ping have now sent their spanking new hybrid from the Rapture V2 range and on first...
