Has anyone hit or played the Tour Edge Exotics XCG7 Drivers (Reg or Beta)?

10 posts in this topic

I am thinking of getting a new driver and wondered about the Tour Exotics line. I ordered the XCG6 3 wood and it is one of the best fairway woods I've ever hit. The reviews on it are great but I find less info on their drivers. I just noticed they've introduced a new model driver (E8) and I've seen some price drops online on the XCG7. I can't find anyone locally handling them or any demo days in my area and I hesitate to buy without trying it. Any info would be appreciated.

I certainly haven't. Would they help my game?

All modern drivers are essentially the same.

Exotics clubs are excellent. Their fairways and hybrids get more press because the driver market is so saturated by the big OEMs.

They just don't pay for reviews or sponsor players, so the demand is limited because buyers don't see them on TV.

I have  Exotics hybrids and fairways and like them so much that I have spares in case something happens to them.

I don't know, that's why I asked. I have one of their fairway woods and it is awesome. I'd loved to hear from someone who plays their driver.

Maybe if I ever get into the low single digits, I might look at these type of clubs.

They seem, well, exotic.

I pretty much agree Shorty on the drivers. I love my Exotics fairway wood, just would love to see or hit the driver but they are hard to find in NC. I do have a shop around an hour away, I may driver over and take a look.That new E8 sure looks good but won't be out until October.

Sorry I can't provide you much help on the TEE drivers, but really like their fairway woods.  In my away bag I use the TEE XCG 7 3W, it's great off the tee and turf.  Based on what I've read their drivers are also very good, but their fairway woods and hybrids really seem to stand out, maybe for the reasons @Shorty listed.

Since you're a 3 HDCP, the Exotics drivers are definitely worth trying. I tried the XCG7 at a 2013 demo day. A super hot club, but I found it a bit hard to handle. (Hey, I'm 23 HDCP). I did better with their XRail driver.

(I ended up buying the XRail 4W + 7W, and the two are solid.)

Thanks for the info, even at a 3, I feel like I need all the help I can get. I've looked at the G30 and that is a fantastic club, the tour Exotics is a little less stress on the wallet.

    • Shot 80 yesterday which is my best score since starting up golf again last year. I was 2 under after 7 so part of me feels a little bit disappointed that I let it slip!   I was feeling so good on the tee at 8 that I thought I'd hit a little draw into the lateral slope of the fairway to get a better position.  Unfortunately my ball missed the ground and went into the trees.  Took a few holes to get the wheels back on and back to playing shots I can actually hit.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good.
