As they did last year with the Hot Launch 522 series Tour Edge Golf is offering C and E versions of the new 523 series designed for the needs of recreational players at two skill levels. The Hot Launch E523 is for slower-swing speed golfers who can use the forgiveness of a super game-improvement design, and the C523 is targeted at those needing a game-improvement club.

Both will be available November 1, 2022, at pricing somewhat higher than the 522s–$20 more for the driver and $10 for the fairway woods and hybrids. Tour Edge continues to offer 48-hour shipping on any custom order placed with any of their 1,000 authorized fitters.

The E523s also has features similar to the company’s premium Exotics line, specifically the Ridgeback carbon fiber crown construction and the Houdini sole configuration.

During the official announcement, David Glod, Tour Edge founder, and the president, said, “One of the biggest reasons Hot Launch has been such a successful endeavor for us has been our ability to simplify and take custom fitting to the mainstream. Hot Launch custom fitting has increased 700% over the years, and I feel we have created a space that did not exist before for budget-minded golfers to consider the custom fit process.”

“With Hot Launch, our goal is to bring as many performance benefits as possible to the budget-minded golfer and to add in the custom fitting element that matches the unprecedented demand the marketplace is experiencing for Game-Improvement clubs.
