TOUR EDGE HYBRID REVIEWS
Tour Edge C522
We tested: 1°9, 22°, 25°, 28°
Our take: The Diamond Face 2.0 and 360° cupface designs are the real deal here, helping make the C522 hybrid not only super forgiving, but super-long as well. This means carrying fewer long irons in the bag (why bother with them?) and more attacking the pin on long par-3s thanks to a higher ballflight and a softer, more vertical landing angle.
Tour Edge Hot Launch C522 Hybrid
The details: Diamond Face 2.0 acts as “mini trampolines” for greater forgiveness and more ballspeed, while the rear weight placement boost the MOI for less resistance to twisting and greater stability. Other features include A.R.C Acoustic Engineering for a better sound and soft but solid feel and a Power Channel behind the clubface for even greater distance.
Tour Edge E522
We tested: 19°, 22°, 25°, 28°
Our take: This is a hybrid made for players who need three things: slice control, a quicker/higher launch and more distance. Luckily, the E522 delivers on all three, with much the same technology found in the E522 woods and driver. We anticipated higher shots (got them), fewer slices (it definitely reduced ours) and found that it was easy to hit the ball further because we felt as though we could swing a little faster. That’s what we call a win-win-win.
Tour Edge Hot Launch E522 Hybrid
The details: Comes with Diamond Face 2.0 for more energy transfer back into the ball for more distance and greater forgiveness on off-center hits, a shallow/low-profile club shape to help push the CG down and hit higher shots, and finally, an offset design to fight slices and help golfers hit straighter, more consistent shots.
Tour Edge Exotics E722
We tested: 17°, 19°, 21°, 23°
Our take: The RyzerSole tech is for real, helping to reduce turf interaction while at the same time producing a low and forward center of gravity for a high-launch/optimized-spin ballflight. It works wonders come time to maneuver the ball, as the E722 made it a cinch to hit or low fades and draws — all while still maintaining a forgiving clubface to retain that added power.
Tour Edge Men’s Exotics E722 Hybrid
The details: The aforementioned RyzerSole extends weight from leading edge to trailing edge for better stability and for producing a low and forward center of gravity. Also comes with an adjustable 10-gram weight is located behind the clubface for less spin and greater flight versatility and trajectory fine-tuning. The new Diamond Face VFT tech and Maraging Steel clubface boost ballspeed from more points on the face with added forgiveness.
Tour Edge Exotics Pro 721
We tested: 17°, 18°, 19°, 20°
Our take: This is a hybrid for the golfer who wants to dial in a very specific shotshape with his/her hybrid shots, as it comes in not only 1° differentials in loft models, but also adjustable weights for a custom ballflight. Its compact design allows for more shotmaking versatility and the player-preferred shape with a taller face helps better players, again, shape more shots. As for us, our experience with the Pro 721 was enlightening. It may be the most maneuverable hybrid we’ve tried as of late.
Tour Edge Exotics C721 Hybrid
The details: The Diamond Face 2.0 tech is here to boost the springiness of the clubface for a hotter, more powerful energy transfer back into the ball. The player-profile shape has a deeper face for greater shotmaking versatility and lower spin for added control. Comes with a Flight Tuning System to manipulate the heel and toe weights for a customized ballflight. Again, comes, in four loft options separated by only 1-degree, for an even more precise fit.
