REVIEW: Tour Edge EXS Pro Hybrid
The Tour Edge EXS Pro hybrid is constructed differently. Rarely do hybrids use titanium faces because the small face doesn’t always see the big gains from the more expensive metal. That didn’t stop Tour Edge from squeezing every last ounce of COR out of this head. It is HOT! You can instantly hear a difference on the first swing with that nice titanium sounds like hitting a driver. Then when you see the numbers you see smash factors like drivers not like hybrids, you know that this club is special.
The Tour Edge EXS Pro hybrid is made from the ground up for the better golfer. The weights are set wide on the corners for stability, but that doesn’t necessarily help with lift. The natural swing needs to create launch. If it does those corner weights reduce spin and create that neutral flight. It also has modified slip stream sole which helps with sole interaction and air flow on the sole of the club. It is another one of those technologies that Tour Edge has used for a few years that definitely seems to work.
The Tour Edge EXS Pro hybrid is paired with a Mitsubishi Tensei AV Silver shaft. This real deal hybrid shaft is very stable and offers strong launch and low spin. It is on the stout side for feel but that also allows the stronger more aggressive swinger to go after the ball without fear. I also like that Tour Edge allows the golfer to dial in the exact loft by offering every loft from 16 to 22 in 1 degree increments. While I know other clubs accomplish this through adjustable hosels, the glued hosel allows for even tighter tolerances and greater weight distribution.
The Tour Edge EXS Pro hybrid “wows” on the course. I could hit every shot that I wanted with this hybrid. It works off the tee, out the rough, from the fairway and even as a chipper. The impressive part was the very neutral flight I had with every shot. It was kind of Goldilocks; not right, not left, just straight. In addition to being so straight, it also was rather long. I went with the 19* as the best fit for my bag and had some monster tee shots with it. I hit one 280 yards off the tee; granted I hit a speed slot in the fairway, but still it is long. I also had numerous approach shots on par 5s that had me looking at eagle.
