What we say...
A variable thickness face creates optimal forgiveness for off centre hits. A “slipstream” sole reduces the amount of turf interaction at impact which means less loss of energy. A heavy sole helps lower the centre of gravity which Tour Edge say will help golfers hit shots out of any turf condition.
When you stop and consider what you actually want from a hybrid 8 out of 10 golfers will say a club that’s easy to consistently hit 200 yards. If that’s your goal you won’t be disappointed with the Tour Edge. All testers thought it was a quality club that teams up a very good shaft and grip combination with an excellent head. We loved how shots felt like they sprung off the clubface and our test pro felt it was amongst the nicest feeling hybrids he hit. It didn’t register the longest or highest ball speed by any chalk but when you enjoy yourself as much as we did hitting this from 200 yards who cares!
We’ve talked a lot during our testing about wide and narrow body hybrids well the Tour Edge falls somewhere in between, which is a great look and a good position from a playability stand point. We reckon the EX9 is well worth a go if you can find them in store.
