I’m just back from the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. Spent a lot of time checking out the latest hot new golf products and discovered some great new golf equipment for today’s woman golfer. If you want more power and distance off the tee, consider testing out the new Exotics XCG6 driver from Tour Edge. This is Tour Edge’s first adjustable driver. What does this mean for you? The design gives you the ability to adjust the driver to shape your shot.
If you’re one of those golfers that seems to seldom hit a drive straight down the fairway… (My favorite spot off the first tee is over the trees and onto the next fairway!) then you’re going to love this driver. If you consistently slice or hook your drive, you make a simple adjustment to the face-angle/loft of the club head to correct this tendency.
For example, to promote a draw or a hook, select the “C” (closed position) on the SCT hosel or the “U” (upright position) for slightly less draw. To hit a fade or slice, select the “O” or open position and for a mostly straight ball flight, select the “N” or neutral position. With the Exotics XCG6 driver, you simply twist the shaft to dial in the distance. Tour Edge provides you with a simple SCT wrench so you can do this adjustment right on the course. Imagine if Bubba Watson had one of these drivers. He’d be hitting around every tree without any problem!
I was a little concerned about how secure the head on the club was if you are using a little wrench to move things about and secure a new angle, but the Tour Edge representative assured me that it is completely safe and very easy to make adjustments. And once you find the angle that works best, it’s likely you’ll keep it dialed in to that set-up.
Here’s more info from the Tour Edge Press Release: Loaded with technology, the Exotics XCG6 driver boasts an advanced multilevel face design that maximizes ball speed by incorporating multiple levels of variable face thickness. By thinning and thickening the forged titanium face, the XCG6 enhances feel and rebound across all striking points on the face. What’s more, the driver enhances forgiveness by maximizing heel/toe weighting compliments of four hexahedron weight pads that deliver a higher moment of inertia for greater stability and forgiveness.
The XCG6 driver comes with Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty and 30‐day play guarantee and is available in the Matrix Ozik HD and Graphite Design Tour AD shafts. Suggested retail: $349.
If you’re looking for a new driver that has forgiveness and power, test the XCG6!
