Tour Edge Exotics EXS Driver – Flight Tuning System

The Tour Edge Exotics EXS driver is one of the most advanced drivers in the company’s history. Furthermore, finding a better driver at this value is going to be quite difficult. There are a lot of good things going on in this driver to help you off the tee.

The Looks

At address, the Tour Edge Exotics EXS driver has a fairly traditional shape with the point of the crown toward the center of trailing edge. If you prefer pear shaped heads, the EXS driver is close, but just shifted a little. Standing over the ball, you immediately notice the carbon fiber crown. Though the carbon fiber look seems to be the flavor of the day for everyone in the biz right now, Tour Edge’s EXS crown is a simple black carbon fiber with the Exotics “E” logo for the alignment aid.

Flip the club over and there’s a touch more character while maintaining a classy look. The signature SlipStream Sole stands out with new wider channels to improve the aerodynamics, resulting in more speed. There’s also more carbon fiber and your first glimpse at the Flight Tuning System (FTS). The FTS is a pair of adjustable weights that can be swapped to influence your ball flight

How Does it Feel?

Don’t be fooled by all the carbon fiber on the Tour Edge Exotics EXS driver. The feel is very solid and metallic with a lot of punch. Tour Edge utilized a TSP 910 Beta Titanium face plate featuring Variable Face Thickness. Pair that with an 8-1-1 Titanium chassis and you get a firm driver face that puts a solid response in your hands. Through the use of these strong materials, Tour Edge is able to make their face lighter and thinner while maintaining a solid feel. That lighter, thinner face helps in a lot of ways such as controlling the CG and creating more ball speed.

Another feature of the Tour Edge Exotics EXS driver is the Roll Face. This Roll Face incorporates modified bulge and roll on the toe that expands the sweet spot to create straighter shots for shots hit off the toe. Tour Edge says most driver misses come off the toe so this drastically improves forgiveness.

Flight Tuning System (FTS)

Last, but not least, is the FTS system and the adjustable hosel for loft changes of  +/- 2 degrees of loft in addition to 3 upright lie angle setting.
The FTS system consists of interchangeable 9 and 3 gram weights. By swapping these weights, you alter the CG of the driver head. Doing so will typically result in some change in ball flight. In the case of the Exotics EXS driver, moving these weights will focus more on shot shape rather than trajectory or spin. Note: the FTS really works. Getting a little too much leak to the right? Throw the 9-gram weight in the heel position and watch it straighten back out.
