The Hybrids Test 2014: Tour Edge Exotics XCG7/Beta
Tech: A variable thickness ‘Power Grid’ positioned behind the sweetspot increases forgiveness. Sole weight pads raise MOI. Also comes in smaller, low-spin Beta version.
What we said... James Ridyard: “Shorter length invites you to hit it hard. Seemed to climb but didn’t lose distance. I like the simple look and you notice the high-spec shaft. Sweetspot felt hot, nice depth to the face.” Joel Tadman: “Can’t really fault the shape or the feel of the Beta, really penetrating flight. Easy to strike the ball consistently and I like the look.” Peter Ward: “Looks great, I like the matt-grey effect on the crown. Not overly long for me despite solid hits.” Ross Nichols: “Love the head. Perfect shape and finish. Decent carry and forgiving too.”
Pros: Classy look and finish. Strong performer.
Cons: Slow swingers lost considerable yards.
The numbers: Distance consistency: 9 Dispersion: 9 Looks: 8 Feel: 8 Forgiveness: 8 Versatility: 7.5
TG Rating: 8/10
Details: Lofts: 19°, 22°, 25°, 28°. Beta 17°, 19°, 22°, 25° Contact: www.touredge.com
