In The Mail: Tour Edge Exotics C721 Driver
visit Tour Edge
In the mail for review this past week is a Tour Edge Exotics C721 Driver.
I’ve taken it out for an initial trial and all I can say is “wow.” My first drive with the C721 on the first hole at Washtenaw Golf Club drove it well past my usual spot. The same was true on the second … and on the third. If this keeps up, I may move from the senior tees back to the mid tees.
Tour Edge calls the Exotics C721 Driver an “ultra premium” model, and touts its Diamond Face 2.0 and RidgeBack technologies.
The Diamond Face technology features 43 different diamond shapes of variable face thickness that each act as a trampoline for faster speeds across a larger expanse of the face.
RidgeBack Tech is a spine inside the carbon fiber crown that functions as a brace while allowing more flex in the heel and toe.
Carbon fiber has been used to replace extra titanium in a pair of “Carbon Wings” that wrap from crown to sole. This, Tour Edge engineers say, allows them to reposition the extra weight low and to the rear to improve CG and create a very high moment of inertia for stability.
As with many high end clubs, there is some adjustability with the Exotics C721 Driver. Hosel adjustments let you change the loft and lie for better contact and ball flight.
There’s also an “adjustable” 10 gram rear backweight. Apparently 5, 15 and 18 gram weights will be available.
It is interesting that there are no options for increasing a draw bias on the club. Yes, a more upright position will encourage a right to left path, and a flatter lie will result in more slices. That, however, is secondary to getting the contact correct.
I’ll have a full review of the Tour Edge Exotics C721 Driver in due course.
