Batavia, IL – Designed to fulfill the expectations and ambitions of our most passionate players, the new Exotics XCG-4 series offers legendary performance. Available in 276-gram super-ultra-light and 310-gram ultra-light editions, Tour Edge guarantees these turbo-charged drivers to thrill and inspire you like no other club has before.
With the development of the XCG-4 driver, Tour Edge engineers have carried out extensive work to create one of the lightest, most aerodynamic drivers in golf. The XCG-4’s new sleek design and heavily-radiused sole allow for a more streamlined, fluid head shape that minimizes drag as the driver cuts through the air. Powered by the game’s most advanced lightweight shafts, the XCG-4 is a true distance weapon off the tee.
The heart of the XCG-4 is an advanced head design that features a titanium face and sole, an amorphous carbon crown, two amorphous carbon sole inserts, and two tungsten sole weights. The ultra-light weight carbon frees up 27 grams of weight that is strategically positioned in the lower rear of the club head to improve MOI by more than 15% over previous versions. The result is longer tee shots that hold the target line even on off-center contact.
To maximize spring-like effect, Tour Edge created the Boomerang face. This supercharged design offers multiple levels of variable face thickness that maximize the rebound effect from more points on the face. By thinning and thickening the face, the v-shaped boomerangs allow for the maximum elongation of the titanium for enhanced feel and hotter launch. The new design increases the XCG-4’s rebound to a 243 characteristic of time (ct) – up from 232ct in the XCG-3. With just one swing of the XCG-4, you’ll feel and see the difference.
With Exotics, Tour Edge spares no expense in building a better golf club. That’s why the tungsten and titanium parts are assembled using our unique vacuum brazing technology. In brazing, the metal parts are joined using a silver filler material that is melted and distributed between the close-fitting parts by capillary action. Extremely expensive and employed extensively in aerospace applications, this technique is utilized when only the highest-quality joints are needed.
The parts must be fitted to 1/1000th of an inch and the base metals must be exceptionally clean and free of oxides. The process is expensive because it must be performed inside a vacuum chamber, but the end result is exceptional because it greatly reduces residual part stresses due to slow heating and cooling cycles. This, in turn, significantly improves the thermal and mechanical properties of the material.
The super-ultra-light version of the XCG-4 delivers one of the lightest drivers on the market with a total club weight of only 276 grams. It features a 45-gram ultra-light Graphite Design Tour Ad 46″ shaft and a 26-gram WinnLite grip. The standard ultra-light version weighs 310 grams and comes standard with a Fujikura Motore 55-gram, 45.5″ long shaft and a Golf Pride New Decade grip. Give both models a test drive and experience for yourself the heart and soul of Exotics.
The Exotics XCG-4 driver wood is guaranteed longer than your current driver and both versions have a suggested retail of $329. For more information, call (800) 515-3343 or visit www.exoticsgolf.com.
