Tour Edge recently introduced their Exotics CBX 119 fairway metals and hybrids, newer versions of the Exotics CBX models originally launched in August of 2017. Modifications and updates were made to the original iterations as a result of feedback from the touring professionals who put Exotics into play in 2018.
To further reduce spin off the fairway metals, the Speed Ramp Sole was widened by 15% to create higher MOI and center of gravity. This wider and deeper design surrounds a larger carbon fiber section on the sole, allowing for more weight to be positioned closer to the face of the clubhead. It also improves turf interaction, allowing golfers to hit these fairway metals comfortably from the rough or out of divots. Chrome stainless steel wings in a horseshoe shape expand the sweet spot and protect its ultra-light carbon fiber cap.
Tour Edge President and club designer David Glod estimated that he was able to save another 10% of the weight of the clubhead due to the increased carbon fiber area. By combo brazing a Titanium face plate to a stainless steel body with carbon fiber on the sole, Glod and his team saved 25% of the weight of the clubhead to use towards CG manipulation. Fairways are offered in four lofts: 13.5, 15, 16.5 and 18 degrees.
The new CBX 119 hybrid is shorter heel-to-toe for more workability and lower spin. The modified design also incorporates a taller face to produce additional power with less spin. Its larger Beta-Titanium face provides for more face flex, making the hybrid hotter off the face than its predecessor. CBX 119 hybrids are available in six lofts: 16 degrees through 21 degrees.
Both the CBX 119 fairways and hybrids are keeping the same look cosmetically, but Glod added a red, white and blue color scheme to demonstrate the pride he takes knowing that Exotics clubs are 100% built in the Unites States at Tour Edge’s Batavia, Illinois headquarters.
