Gearing Up:~Tour Edge Exotics XCG6

Tour Edge is quickly becoming one of the most popular club lines in golf, especially considering their recent success as the fairway wood of choice of AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am champion Brandt Snedeker.

The 2013 Exotics fairway wood line offers a wide range of options, including the XCG series.

The XCG6 is an attractive club that is both forgiving and consistent in distance production and accuracy. Coined as the “longest fairway wood in golf,” the new XCG6 model features a beta-titanium cup face and a high-density steel body to give you an obscene boost in distance from the turf. According to their company website, the XCG6 generated ball speeds and carry distance higher than any other fairway metal on the market.

More than 65 percent of the clubhead weight has been pushed toward the heel and toe areas, providing unparalleled balance at impact.

Like its predecessors – the XCG4 and XCG5 models – this season’s offering boasts a high MOI and low center of gravity that helps you lift the ball from nearly any lie on the course. I found the XCG6 easy to hit and comfortable at address, which is actually quite important to me in choosing a club. After all, you have to keep those positive thoughts in tact prior to your swing.

The XCG6 is available in 3+ to 7-wood models, in five different shaft flex options and retails for $299.99.
