Tested some Exotics line clubs last week at Demo Day.
I had played Tour Edge Bazooka 3W and 5W from 2002 to 2008. Low-profile pair I really liked, quit using when I dropped stiff shafts.
I had tested Exotics at prior demo days, and they were at the top of my list this time.
As for the mainline Exotics, the XCG6 is a low profile wood with a very hot face. I tried some shots with it, and when I hit is square it really moved out. Stock shafts:
I was a little wild with the lighter AD 40, and got better pattern with the HDs. If I got to where I was shooting in the 80s regularly, I might upgrade to the XCG6.
The Tour Edge rep encouraged everyone to hit both the 15* 3W and the 16.5* 4W. It just depends on swing characteristics - more on attack angle than swing speed. You just have to see which is best.
As things happened, I bought the Exotics XRail variant (4W and 7W). XRail has a slight v-shaped sole to help get the ball up. It gives me a little less distance but a bigger margin of error than the XCG6. I worked out the XRails at the range today, very promising - and will do a review once I play a couple of rounds.

Additional note: I had hit the Callaway XHots at an April Demo Day. The Exotics XCG6 reminded me a lot of the XHots, similar square-face setup and feel. Both have hot faces!
I believe the Exotics have a slightly lower profile, although I didn't do a side-by-side test last weekend.
If I later decide to upgrade to more aggressive FWs, the contest would be between XHots and Exotics.
