The new Exotics E8 drivers from Tour Edge deliver distance-dominating speed with adjustability options that allow players to fine tune power and control, and will drive Exotics to the forefront of the driver category. At the core of E8 driver’s technology is the center of gravity location and its ability to increase ball speed for legendary Exotic length.
E8 drivers are available in two options-E8 & E8 Beta-both feature superior adjustability with loft modifications and an interchangeable sole weight. A discerning feature of the E8 models involves the center of gravity (CG) location focusing on faster ball speeds. Engineers positioned E8’s CG slightly lower and forward for a higher launch, and faster ball speed with less spin. The Beta utilizes a higher, more forward CG position to produce a more penetrating trajectory, increased ball velocity, and minimal spin.
The standard E8 club head is customized with a 460cc titanium head and improved weighting with a noticeable lower profile. The driver’s forgiving construction also produces an easy-launching, high trajectory design for maximum accuracy and forgiveness. The Beta is highlighted by a Beta Titanium face that delivers Exotics legendary power and feel. It features a 440cc low-spin, deeper faced head that produces a slightly lower, more boring trajectory.
The Power Grid has been refined in both models of the E8. The club head’s channel is remarkably deeper, further enhancing the accordion effect and increasing spring-effect at impact. The Power Grid on the Beta model is strategically narrower than on the E8. This allows the CG to be positioned
closer to the face in the Beta, creating a powerful launch angle with minimal spin. In both models ,the cells within the Power Grid are aligned in offsetting rows, strengthening the design and allowing the cells to be made thinner for added flexibility and a more powerful launch.
Variable face thickness technology offers multiple levels of thickness that maximize the spring-like effect from more points on the face, especially in the heel and toe areas. Club heads include loft options from 8.5 to 12 degrees. this versatility gives players the ultimate control in achieving optimal distance and accuracy.
The E8 collection showcases an added adjustability option by incorporating an interchangeable sole weight. The driver comes with a standard 7 gram weight in the sole, but can be changed with the purchase of an three-piece weight kit which includes a 5,10 and 12 gram weights and costs $49.99. Individual weights are available for $19.99. The swing weight can be adjusted by altering the weight in the sole,allowing players to further dial-in their desired flight and feel.
A Tour inspired matte black finish reduces glare at address and is the perfect accompaniment to the E8 drivers. They feature Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty, 30day play guarantee, and are projected to be in stores the beginning of October. E8 is available with the Fujikura Pro/Pro Tour and Mitsubishi Bassara E-series for a MSRP of $299.99. The E8 Beta is available in Aldila Rogue Silver and Black with a MSRP $399.99.
