Tour Edge has introduced the Exotics CBX Iron-Wood, a club that features a new high-tensile steel ‘L’ cup face for improved forgiveness and explosiveness off the face.
The CBX takes aim at players who want hybrid performance combined with the feel and workability of a traditional forged iron design.
The new ‘L’ cup face design combine with a hollow-style body to achieve a maximum CT measurement. CT, or Characteristic Time, is the testing method used to determine if the spring face effect of a clubhead conforms to USGA standards.
“As one of the first companies to debut hybrids back in the late 90s, we have come a long way in technology advancements and design aesthetics,” said David Glod, president and founder of Tour Edge Golf.
“Our new CBX Iron-Wood brings the best of both together with a forged cup face and is available in either a traditional silver finish or the limited edition black pearl finish. The CBX, more than any previous models, gives you feel, power, and workability, all in one versatile, streamlined club,” he added.
The ‘L’ cup face increases the CT level across a greater surface area of the club face, while the bottom of the ‘L’ acts as a hinge allowing the entire face to flex at impact, not just the centre of the sweet spot. A thinner leading edge is used to provide spring-effect throughout the face for improved forgiveness on mis-hits, either off the toe or the heel.
The combination of the L-cup technology combined with forged Japanese HT 980 steel is used to provide more distance with minimal spin, while the hollow body design allows for precise weighting and forgiveness.
The CBX’s rounded sole brings a hybrid-style into the design, while the heavily beveled leading edge glides easily through any turf.
The CBX is available in in four lofts, including two (17 degree), three (19 degree), four (22 degree), and five (25 degree). T
Premium shafts include the Project X HZRDUS series and Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver Dual Core, with a standard Lamkin Z5 grip.
