    Tour Edge Exotics XCG7 Driver Preview

    This is a press release



    Batavia, IL - After six successful XCG driver launches, the new XCG7 driver offers more variability, technology, and material upgrades than its predecessors. Continuing the Exotics tradition the XCG7 drivers bring premium technology to today’s techno-savvy consumers and increases commercial viability by offering two clubheads., the XCG7 and XCG7 Beta. The XCG7 adjustable driver is available in two different clubheads, 440cc (Beta) and 460cc. The XCG7 driver features upgraded performance in a 6A4V titanium, 460cc driver head that produces easy-launching and high trajectory with added forgiveness. The new driver incorporates added adjustability with loft options from 8.5 to 12 degrees in ½ degree increments. The Beta, 440cc adjustable clubhead presents a smaller, refined shape composed of 6A4V titanium with a deeper, beta titanium face. The new head also incorporates added adjustability with loft options from 8.5 to 12 degrees in ½ degree increments creating a penetrating trajectory.


    Maximizing distance, engineers designed the Power Grid. Positioned directly behind the hitting area, the Power Grid creates an accordion-like effect and increases spring-effect by flexing at impact. The Power Grid alternates in thickness from 0.5mm to 1.0mm, allowing the thinner dimple-slots to flex, producing a hotter launch. Four advanced-position hexahedron weight pads maximize MOI for greater stability in each clubhead. The weighting positions the center of gravity in the optimal location in the XCG7 lower and deeper in the head for mid spin and a higher launch angle. For a more penetrating launch angle, and to minimize spin, the pads in the Beta are located higher and closer to the face.



    Picture courtesy of Tour Edge's Facebook Page.


    Further enhancing stability, weight is removed from the rear center of the sole. This dual-step cavity in the XCG7 allows the extra weighting in the rear heel and toe to provide maximum forgiveness. A wider cavity is featured in the XCG7 Beta to move weight forward for a higher CG.


    Variable face thickness technology offers multiple levels of thickness that maximize the spring-like effect from more points on the face, especially in the heel and toe areas. Completing the new XCG7 design is a Tour-inspired matte black finish which reduces glare and features the Exotics logo on the top heel.


    The XCG7 driver’s appearance is distinctive and easy to differentiate the two clubheads. The XCG7 Beta’s chromatic medallion includes ‘Beta’ on the plate, and ‘Beta’ appears in white on the hosel.


    The XCG7 drivers features Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty and 30-day play guarantee. It is available in the most popular shafts on the market; Fujikura Fuel and Tour and the Matrix Ozik White, Red and Black Tie shafts. Suggested retail: XCG7 $299.99; Beta $349.99.

    Yea, I thought the same WE. Might be the lighting though, they are saying matte black.

    With that finish, XHP absolutely.

    I really like the addition of "EXOTICS" but it's very similar to the Nike swoosh on the Covert in placement.

    Should be a fun one to hit. I think the shaft pairing in the last series was rough for me, but I've seen people pound it.

    Nice! Loving the matte finish with the Exotics printed across the back edge! I love my XCG5 3 wood from TE but if the fairway woods look as good as the driver, I may have to consider trying it out.

    Matte black is probably my favorite color for a driver. Would love to hit this driver, probably the 460 for me. Agreed that the stock shaft options are really good.

    Looks similar to the XHot. If the performance is similar, they have a hit.

    Price is not bad for a TE product. I'd love to try it. Big fan of their FWs but have never hit a TE driver.

    I am stoked to hear this! The XCG6 is still the longest driver I've ever swung and by a good margin too...if only I could control it. I will be trying this one as soon as possible!

    If they make the XCG7 head as low spin as the XCG6 was I'm thinking the Matrix Red Tie would be a deadly match-up.
