Tour Edge Exotics EXS Drivers Anyone? Anyone?

Recommended Posts

I am very curious about this driver, primarily due to the high rating that My Golf Spy gave. I am especially curious if anyone had used/hit it it with the Fujikura Ventus shaft.  Hard to beat that price. The return on investment is enticing. Thanks

Well, due to the member testing, and the high rating from y’all I bought it. Love love love it. Crush it too. And the Fujikura shaft is amazing. It feels like a cant miss. I’m back to taking lines I wouldn’t have dated with my old driver

Thanks guys!

Trufit put me into this driver as well and I just saw my local range carries it as a demo. I think I'm going to need to try it out now!

I tried the EXS last year at PGA store and it hung with all the OEMs that I tried for fraction of the price. I still have a 6 year old Tour Edge XSG7 Beta that hits absolute bombs with pretty solid dispersion so didn't feel like I needed a change. Will definitely consider the EXS or the newest Tour Edge whenever I change, but the SIM looks pretty great too once it's got an old model price.

Face is HOT. It feels like you can't miss and when you do it still goes a mile. It's my next driver. However, I would like to try it with the HZRDUS Yellow Shaft before I make that decision. I hit it with the 4T Ventus and loved it but want to see if I can squeeze out another few mph's with the HZRDUS.

That's the suggested shaft for me too.  I ordered a used one from Global Golf to try with my F8.  I did the super speed training protocol and need an x stiff shaft now.  #Speedproblems 😂

I recently purchased the EXS and a weight kit directly from Tour Edge.

Changed the weights to a 6 gram (heel) and 14 gram (rear). Am getting major yardage for my age and swing.

That's a lot of mass added to the head. What shaft flex and length are you playing it at? What did your swing weight come out to be?

Haven’t measured it yet, but at +8 grams that should make it D4?

 

It does feel a bit heavy, but the results are DTM.

For reals? I've had my superspeed training set going into my 3rd week now and I'm definitely starting to feel the mechanical differences in my swing transitioning from "harder" to "faster" and totally messing with my yardages. I was able to test the HZRDUS Yellow vs. the 4T Ventus shafts with the EXS 220 just now and the conter balance on the HZRDUS made the weight feel amazing and also lowered the spin significantly. Just a great performing numbers wise and loading at the top felt right. Side by side the Ventus felt too whippy.

I had already had made the conscious decision it was my next driver but now the issue is the EXS 220 Tour model comes out next week with a smaller head, moveable weight and deeper face to help with reduce spin so I wanna give it a throw first. My swing wasn't 100% when I hit it today but was still able to pipe a few over 300 topping out at a max distance of 310, 112 mph swing speed and 162 max ball speed. Spin was up 500-750 rpm comparatively from the last time I was hitting the Ventus but the few I got out there were sub 2000 rpm. If I can drop the spin even lower it's gonna get hard to swing with a constant erection. 

Initially I went because I needed to fill in some clubs I had to order to replace my Miura's that were stolen. I got the Honma TW737 V 10-5 that I got bent 2 degrees flat and ordered 4-2 iron of Mizuno MP-20 HMB. They match the progression of loft with the Honma's best. I was skeptical with a hollow club but Mizuno hits it out of the park in the feels and performance.

Sorry to hear you had your clubs stolen! That sucks! Did you get insurance to cover the cost of replacement?
But that’s awesome to hear you’re bombing it! I finally got to test it out on the range and course this last week and all I can say is wow! My dispersion was so much better and I think I gained a little distance too. It was adjustment to not have the whippy feel that I had with the Adila. I have no idea on the spin but the feel was much more solid. This is on my trusty old Cobra F8. I’m in the same boat though. I like the Pro version with the weights. I definitely need to actually get fitted on my next driver purchase. I think I’m past the point on the Global Golf bargain shopping

Thanks for the sentiment. I am getting them replaced right now through insurance but things are just starting to normalize the bay area that I'm able to go out and get fitted. Right now I'm building the set. I didn't want to get my heart completely broken again so I'm breaking up my clubs a bit. I got the Honma TW737 V 5-10 irons. Clubs are little stronger which I like for my gaps distances. Filled in Mizuno MP-20 HMB for 4-2 irons which should be ready next week. Gonna get fitted for either the Ping G10, EXS 220 or the EXS 220 Pro. Need a 50 and a and 56 which I'll bend to a 55 and I have a 60.

I used to really like the whippy feel but as I've gotten better with my timing I don't need that whippy feel to get there and I get a penetrating flight that runs forever. It also helps since I've upped my swing speed but realistically with my build and frame I'm never gonna be able to squeeze out enough to need an x-stiff. Getting fitted taught got me used to the importance of numbers and dispersion. I switched to graphite because it was stupid how much tighter it is compared to any of the steel shafts. I'll post a pic of my set when I'm there. 

Keep it in the short grass.

I'm in the fortunate position of kid in a candy store with free tasters. I've had success with Taylormade in the past so right now I'm looking at the Milled Grind, Honma TW-W4 and Cobra MIM. Taylormade is a bit firm and clicky but it sets up well to my eye, haven't yet tried the Honma but it scores really well the previous MGS wedge test in the areas I care about, spin and dispersion. I've also had my eye on the Cobra MIM wedge. I've already got it set up to hit these when the clubs I ordered arrive. Also gonna try and test the drivers.

I like the look of the MIM’s. I play the TM MG in 54 and 58 and love them. They seem to spin really well and are very workable. But I’m truly jealous! Lol Have fun bud!

Mine came with the same shaft I have in my F8.....Tense ck Blue. I have been experimenting with the weight kit and right now have 3 gr & 14 gr weights. Trying to increase my launch.
