The new Exotics E8 drivers from Tour Edge are available in two options, E8 and E8 Beta, both feature adjustability with loft modifications and an interchangeable sole weight.
Engineers positioned E8’s centre of gravity slightly lower and forward for a higher launch and faster ball speed with less spin. The Beta has a higher, more forward centre of gravity position to produce a more penetrating trajectory, increased ball velocity, and minimal spin.
The standard E8 clubhead has a 460 c.c. titanium head and improved weighting, with a lower profile.
The Beta driver is highlighted by a Beta Titanium face used to provide more power and feel. The Beta features a 440 c.c. low-spin, deeper-faced head that for a slightly lower, more boring trajectory.
The Power Grid has been refined in both models of the E8. The E8 clubhead’s channel is remarkably deeper to further enhance the accordion effect and increase spring-effect at impact.
The Power Gridon the Beta models are strategically narrower than on the E8. to allow the centre of gravity to be positioned closer to the face in the Beta, for a more powerful launch with minimal spin.
In both models, the cells within the Power Grid are aligned in offsetting rows, strengthening the design and allowing the cells to be made thinner for added flexibility and a more powerful launch.
Variable face thickness technology offers multiple levels of thickness to maximize the spring-like effect from more points on the face, especially in the heel and toe areas.
The E8 clubheads include loft options from 8.5 to 12 degrees in half degree increments. This versatility offers players the better control in achieving more distance and accuracy.
The E8 collection showcases an added adjustability option by incorporating an interchangeable sole weight.
The driver comes standard with a seven-gram weight in the sole, but can be changed with the purchase of an optional weight kit. The three-piece weight kit includes a five-gram, 10-gram, and 12-gram weight.
Individual weights are also available.
The driver’s swing weight can be adjusted by altering the weight in the sole, allowing players to further dial in their desired flight and feel.
