Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver Review
C Stands for Crushing Drives
I played 5 rounds of golf with the Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver in my bag. It is a large, easy to hit and align driver that absolutely Crushes the ball. Add the numerous adjustments you can make and this club can fit a wide variety of golfers. I was also able to hit it on my FlightScope Xi Tour Launch Monitor to collect shot data. I have over 11 years of experience testing and reviewing golf clubs.
Here is my overall experience and thoughts on this driver.
The 2022 Driver testing has begun at Independent Golf Reviews. Most OEMs came out with a new and improved driver for this year. There is a story line with every brand and every product. How much is left for manufactures to change in order to improve each year? While some of the max yardage numbers might be able to be achieved with older drivers, average distance still has room for fine tuning and improved consistency. The new Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver is proof that there is still room for improvements and longer average drives. The C722 Crushes it.
Tour Edge asks if you are a C or an E? The C line is Compact while the E line is Extreme forgiveness. I am certainly a C player across the board. However the C722 Driver isn’t exactly compact compared to other brands even though it is 445cc. While compared to the E722 driver it is definitely more compact. The Tour Edge Exotics C722 driver has a really nice shape. It is longer front to back than some, but sits very square to the ball and looks very nice from all angles.
The Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver uses the same Ridgeback “T-frame” from previous years which gives the crown a really nice look, but also serves as nice aiming tool. It is very easy to see where this driver is pointing at address. The aiming feature has the side benefit of the frame that it creates paired with carbon fiber top and bottom. The rigidity of the frame helps transfer energy to the face at impact, while allowing Tour Edge to move the MOI around for good forgiveness on a low spin driver. They made the Ridgeback frame even lighter this year, while maintaining the strength for CG manipulation, but the same energy transfer.
The face of the Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver is really hot and forgiving. The muted crack at impact is a really pleasing mix of metal and carbon sound. They install sound difusers inside the club to dial in just the right tone. The titanium Diamond Face VFT means there are 61 diamond variable thickness points behind the face which create a hot and forgiving surface. Tour Edge calls them mini trampolines which I think is appropriate how the ball comes off the face, even if you don’t hit dead center. This face is very forgiving for a low spin bomber. The face is part of the secret to this driver Crushing shots.
The Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver has a front/back weighting system. It is connected to the crown’s Ridgeback and holds the forward and rear interchangeable weights. It also serves as a balance point when the sole of the club is grounded. It allows the club to sit square at address and has a rudder like effect. Changing the weights has approximately a 300 rpm change to shots. It also impacts sound and feel. If you need to get even lower spin than standard, move the heavier weight forward. The stock 5gram and 20gram weight can be moved easily or even changed for different combination with the purchase of different weights.
An adjustable hosel is pretty well standard in all drivers. While many golfer don’t mess with the hosel much, they should certainly consider a slight change based on their swing needs. You’d be surprised at what a single degree of change can do.
The Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver is attempting to unseat my gamer driver which has proven reliable and trustworthy over the years. It has a real shot at winning the gamer spot for 2022. I haven’t completed testing yet of all the brands, but Tour Edge is Crushing the ball off the tee. It is easy to hit and has a mid/low flight which is very piercing. It goes and goes on firm fairways with lots of roll. It is even more impressive how bad my swing has been and how good the results are with the Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver.
The Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver has 6 “stock” shaft options. They are broken down by swing speed and launch parameters. I went with the Mitsubishi Tensei AV RAW White Graphite 65g stiff shaft. It appears to be the most popular “stock” driver shaft of 2022 across brands. It is one the lower spinning, lower launching shafts, but yet maintains a really nice feel. If you are fighting spin, this combo with the weight forward is going to be one of the lowest spin drivers you can find for 2022.

The Tour Edge Exotics C722 Driver is the best deal in golf. While I don’t rate clubs based on price, there is not doubt that leaving a couple C-Notes in your pockets is an added bonus with this club. This driver offers legit low spin, pretty good forgiveness and lots of adjustability. You can decide if you are a C or an E when it comes to Tour Edge drivers, but I can say confidently that the C722 Crushes it.
