    Was curious if the EXS drew more easy for you than the HL3.
    Never did get to hit that one, sorry dude!

I think getting it on the course in familiar surroundings next week will be the telltale sign for me. David did include extra weights so I should be able to manipulate the head weighting and any bias if needed.

    No worries.
    The HL3 flight surprised me. Then again the HL3 hybrids were the same way. They wanted to fade on me. That’s a first for me too with hybrids. Tried them with the stock shaft and recoils and same deal.

    I know @Canadan reviewed the HL3 and IIRC he saw similar to you in it wanting to fade. Pretty wild to me still considering the target of that driver.

    Tour Edge Exotics EXS Driver Review

    My local grass roots shop said these have done surprisingly well. Especially when he fits someone into them and they save $200.

    He said Wilson missed the boat on pricing (his opinion) the Cortex. He said based on how it performs it holds up but at $500 they are walking out with a Ping, TM or Cally driver for the same money. He confined to talk about the EXS in that He feels the value proposition of the EXS makes people consider it especially if the fitting shows it performs.

    Right. I meant to add that about the target audience. Then again they do make an Offset HL3 version driver head and I did draw .... Errrr Hook that with ease lol There was no in between though. It was hooks (Offset) and Fades with the std head.

    I'm still baffled by it. Wondering if it's more face angle (and my autocorrects) over anything else, or weighting... Baffled.

    I don't know dude, the feedback on that one everywhere has been spot on with what you saw. I remember us discussing it and me calling you a liar at first lol

    Me too! Especially considering my Epic struggles the last few months.

    The lower 2000s spin with the 9.5* head and a high launching, mid to high spin shaft (Tensei Red) we saw in the fitting was shocking to me. That combo brought both the spin down and carry up over much lower spinning shafts with the 10.5* head. I also have a LA Golf White Tie that is just waiting for a Tour Edge adapter that I am excited to try in this head also.

    I haven’t hit the EXS yet but if they offered the HL3 in 12* non Offset I’d probably consider it. Not the best sounding but the fact I struggled to turn it over I probably could have found a shaft that helped in that regard. Much rather play a long slight push or straight flight than fighting the snap hook.

    I wish the online reviewers or golf sites would measure driver face angles.

    I think the primary reason the M3 works for me is the face seems more open than any other driver I’ve tried.
