Recently, I shared an article about the new Exotics EXS 220 driver from David Glod and Tour Edge Golf. In today’s article, I shed a little bit of light on the fairway metals. Highly underrated, the EXS metalwoods from 2019 were top performers. The beautiful part about that range was that you received a premium product, made with premium components with a ton of technology for a very reasonable MSRP.
With the EXS 220 fairway metals, you get more of the same with a couple of new “wrinkles”. Lighter materials, a Diamond Cup Face (see more on that technology below), and an improved SlipStream Sole headline the features of the EXS 220 metalwoods.
For more, please see the excerpt from the full press release as shared by Jon Claffey. Mr. Claffey is the Vice President of Marketing for Tour Edge Golf.
Until The Next Tee!!
EXS 220 Fairway
The new EXS 220 Fairway Metals are made with a new Hyper-Steel that is 14% lighter than the previous EXS fairway metal, allowing for more weight to be positioned in the center of the sole and the rear of the clubhead to create dual-concentric weighting that produces a unique combination of ease of launch and low spin.
The combination of the back weight, the Diamond Cup Face and Dual Carbon Sole produced impressive distance gains, while also providing extreme forgiveness off the face by greatly increasing the M.O.I. of the clubhead. Dual Carbon Fiber placements featured in the heel and toe and a new larger 6-gram weight placed in the rear of the clubhead helped create extreme weight savings that could be then repositioned to help create the extreme jump in MOI properties and to create the ideal C.G. position for a fairway metal. Additional weights will be available in 3 grams, 9 grams, 11 grams and 14 grams to help dial in the preferred swing weight and trajectory.
While typical variable face thickness would feature only three layers of thick and thin areas behind the face, Diamond Face technology features 44 different thick and thin diamond shapes behind the face of the fairway metal, producing a sweet spot that is extended higher on the toe, heel and center of the face.
The SlipStream Sole features improved wider speed channels that create a faster
clubhead speed due to smoother turf interaction. The EXS 220 fairway metal also features the S.D. Bar used to improve the acoustic engineering by enhancing the richness of sound upon impact.
Three 3-Woods will be offered in the EXS 220 fairway metal line-up, 13.5, 15 and
16.5 degree models. The 15-degree will be available in left-handed. There will also
an 18-degree 5-Wood and 21-degree 7-Wood available.
To see the chosen stock shafts for the EXS 220 Fairway, 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. Also of note below, the Exotics 220 line-up will now be included in Tour Edge’s unprecedented 48-hour custom delivery program for custom orders anywhere in the continental United States.
The suggested retail price for the EXS 220 Fairway is $249.99.
