Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing information on the new Exotics EXS 220 metalwoods family. I predicted that the 2019 EXS range was going to be good, really good and highly underrated based on my reviews of the Exotics EXS hybrid. That hybrid ended up being the best that I’ve gamed to this point and is an “automatic” club. If you never made swings with the EXS irons or the driver then you really missed out.
Fun Fact. The 2019 Exotics EXS driver finished on the podium for Teezy Award honors in the “Top Driver” category. As new products have emerged and information released, it was Tour Edge Golf who had me the most curious. How would they follow-up the very successful Exotics EXS range? The answer. The Exotics EXS 220.
Today, we have a look at the driver.
In the release below we learn about everything that is the Exotics 220 range. I liken them to a proverbial love-child of the EXS and CBX 119 range (the latter I never made swings with).
New inclusions for the EXS 220 driver include…
- Diamond-Face Technology
- Exceptional forgiveness through very high MOI numbers
- S.D Bar to enhance and improve the acoustics and more
Please see the press release below for all of the details. More to come.
Until The Next Tee!!

Tour Edge officially introduces the Exotics EXS 220 driver, fairway metal and
hybrid, featuring state-of-the-art game-enhancing innovations that vastly improves
upon the wildly successful and award-winning Exotics EXS line.
Exotics EXS 220 metalwoods feature Diamond Face technology, a major breakthrough in face technology that features different thick and thin diamond shapes or “mini-trampolines” behind the face, producing a hotter face with faster ball speeds and better performance on off-center hits, as well as reduced spin.
The all-new shapes and weight repositioning of the EXS 220 metalwoods have made
for the most forgiving and stable metals ever produced by Tour Edge.
“We have taken a substantial leap forward in design innovation with the entire EXS
220 line,” said Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod. “We set
an all-time record for Exotics metalwoods sold with the original EXS line and based
on the initial reaction to the performance from our partners and tour professionals,
we feel we will shatter that sales record with the EXS 220.”
“Our goal is to make anyone who hits these side by side to clubs that cost twice as
much to question why they would ever think about spending the extra money,” said
Glod. “These clubs are that good. We will have a large amount of EXS 220 in play
on the professional tours and we will penetrate bags of the better players across
the globe due to the extreme performance benefits of these clubs. Truly, pound for
pound, nothing comes close to the EXS 220 metalwoods.”
The new ultra-premium, high-performance Exotics EXS 220 driver, fairway metal
and hybrid will be featured at the 2020 PGA Merchandise Show and will be available
for purchase worldwide on February 1, 2020.
EXS 220 Driver
The EXS 220 Driver produces extreme Moment of Inertia (M.O.I.) numbers with its
all new elongated face-to-back shape and adjustable 9-gram back weight to create
one of the highest M.O.I. ratings ever manufactured in a driver. Additional weights
will be available in 3 grams, 6 grams, 11 grams, and 14 grams to help dial in the
preferred swing weight and trajectory.
The driver features an all-new elongated shape and adjustable 9-gram back weight to create an M.O.I. of 5440 grams per cubic centimeter, a 20% percent increase over the previous EXS Driver. Helping secure such high M.O.I. numbers were also made possible by the employment of Triple Carbon Fiber technology featured on the crown and heel/toe areas of the sole.
This premium and extremely lightweight carbon fiber provide extreme weight savings that could then be repositioned into the back of the clubhead. The high-grade 8-1-1 Titanium face of the EXS 220 Driver is shallower and features a lower density, lighter Titanium to allow for more weight repositioning. Behind the face, the revolutionary Diamond Face technology features 42 different thick and thin diamond shapes, producing a massive sweet spot.
The Diamond Face produces a hotter face with faster ball speeds, reduction of spin and better performance on off-center hits. Tour Edge engineers have placed a Sound Diffusion Bar (S.D. Bar) inside the clubhead that has been used to improve the acoustic engineering of the entire new EXS metalwood line up.
The S.D. Bar was modeled using the F.E.A software to research and fine-tune the
acoustical properties of the driver. The S.D. Bar is a similar idea employed in music
studios and concert halls with diffusion panels used to enhance the richness of sound.
The EXS 220 offers an unprecedented range of lofts from 7.5 degrees to 14 degrees
with three head options.
An adjustable hosel allows golfers to adjust the loft Plus/Minus 2 degrees up and
down, so with three lofts being offered in 9.5, 10.5, and 12 degrees, the EXS 220
offers an unprecedented range of lofts from 7.5 degrees to 14 degrees between the
three loft options. A left-handed version will be made available in the 10.5 loft option.
To see the chosen stock shafts for the EXS 220 Driver, see the SpeedTested Shafts
section below that will explain how the optimal shaft for every flex and swing speed
has been selected for the EXS 220 line through extensive robotic testing.
