I love this time of the year. It’s fall and that mean apple cider, pumpkin pie and golf manufacturers start to give us a look at what’s going to be released for the upcoming product cycle. Today’s news comes from the Tour Edge Exotics camp.
Following on the heels of the successful and very impressive EXi and EXd line comes the EXS. Aesthetically, there are some things that remind me of EXi and that is a very good thing considering how I felt about them. The newest set from Tour Edge Exotics is to be released in the next few weeks (November 1, 2018). The EXS irons boast a ton of technology in an iron design. Most notably is the SpiderWeb VFT Technology (VFT means Variable Face Thickness) which expands the sweet spot in every direction from the center, a 19-gram Tungsten weight for additional toe weighting for providing a higher M.O.I at impact (resistance to twisting), the very impressive Mitsubishi Tensei CK Blue 2G shaft which is Tour-preferred and much more.
It’s been quite a journey for Master Club Designer David Glod who started back in 1986 in his garage.

Set by Master Club Designer David Glod Designed to be the Longest Iron Set in
Tour Edge, Golf’s Most Solid Investment, officially introduces the Exotics EXS
hollow-body iron set, featuring a myriad of game-enhancing innovations that has
led Tour Edge to market the EXS line with the tagline Pound for Pound, Nothing Else Comes Close.
The loaded-with-technology iron set features a forged Cup Face with state-of-theart
SpiderWeb VFT Technology for expanded sweet spots, a hollow-body design on
long irons and an undercut design on short irons that incorporates LaunchPad
technology behind the face for optimal launch, a 19-gram Tungsten weight for
extreme toe weighting and a Ramped Sole for faster clubhead speed through the turf.
The new ultra-premium, high-performance iron set will be available on November 1, 2018.
“Make no bones about it, this set was designed to be the longest distance iron in
the game,” said Master Club Designer David Glod. The lofts are unapologetically strong as we were able to get the proper launch behind them due to the LaunchPad Technology and the seamless hollow body to undercut construction. I think it’s fair to say that you’ll gain eight to ten yards per iron with the EXS iron on the long irons and five to eight on short irons.”
A new SpiderWeb Variable Face thickness technology located behind the face acts as a web across the face to enhance the sweet spot in every direction from the center of the face. The forged cup face is extremely light and thin, the thinnest that Tour Edge has ever manufactured. The steel is exceptionally strong and works in conjunction with LaunchPad Technology that is a TPE polymer that has been coated with a special performance gel that absorbs shock and and creates more spring effect.
A 19-gram Tungsten toe weight elongates the sweet spot even further for
maximum forgiveness on the face. A Ramped Sole offers more relief on the heel and toe for smoother turf interaction.
An ultra-premium Tensei CK Blue 2G shaft series by Mitsubishi Chemical is the
chosen stock graphite shaft for the EXS iron set. Extremely light yet extremely
stable throughout, the Tensei Blue CK features advanced materials like Carbon
Fiber and Kevlar mixed with other lightweight materials that weigh in the 60-80
gram range depending on flex. A 60-gram weight will be available in Ladies and Aflex,
a 70-gram shaft available in Regular flex and an 80-gram shaft available in
Stiff and X-flex. In steel, the EXS iron set comes standard in a KBS Max 80 shaft
that will be available in Regular flex and Stiff flex.
The Exotics EXS irons are available from 4-iron to sand wedge with the set also
including a pitching wedge, approach wedge and gap wedge.
The suggested retail price for the Exotics EXS iron set for a 7-piece set in the Tensei graphite will be $799.99, while the 7-piece set in KBS 80 Max steel will retail
Every Tour Edge club comes with a lifetime warranty and a 30-day play guarantee.
