Tour Edge has introduced the new Exotics CBX fairway woods.
The CBX design alters the club’s centre of gravity (CG) to manipulate initial launch angle and velocity, also reducing the amount of spin the ball will have on release.
“The CBX wood is a game-changer. The distance gains from the independent test are phenomenal. Then, we saw the spin numbers and started calling it the spin-killer around the office,” said president and founder David Glod.
“Everything has lined-up for the CBX – the design, compilation of materials, and CG location to make it our next best fairway wood,” he said.
“It really has brought us back to full circle on where we were when we launched Exotics and provided a product that no one else in the industry could match, numbers wise. We can’t wait for golfers to try it and to start spreading the word,” said Glod.
A carbon sole unit moves mass forward to determine the precise CG location. The longer toe to heel and shorter front to back head shape allows precise weighting throughout the clubhead and enhances performance with absolute CG location.
The higher CG location minimizes spin for greater distance. The result of the higher CG is not only low spin, but also less dispersion on mis-hits due to reduced side spin.
Engineers developed the new Speed Ramp sole on the CBX based on the design of the SlipStream sole waves in the very Exotics CB Pro fairway wood. The Speed Ramp sole is the next generation of design to minimize ground contact and maintain speed through impact.
The thin Beta Titanium face is combo brazed to the heavy hypersteel body without welding for exact weighting tolerances. The Exotics’ variable face thickness technology is in place to provide forgiveness on off-centre hits. Cosmetically the CBX features a strong black finish without any alignment marks.
The CBX fairway wood will be for sale in four lofts – three (13.5 degree), three (15 degree), four (16.5 degree) and five (18 degree).
