New CBX T3 Joins Exotics CBX “Spin Killer” Series Of Clubs

A Tour winner as a Prototype, the Exotics CBX T3 is hitting stores May 15th

BATAVIA, IL – Tour Edge, Golf’s Most Solid Investment, announced the upcoming release of the Exotics CBX T3 fairway wood, a new version of the spin-killing Exotics CBX fairway wood.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback the Exotics CBX fairway woods have received on the professional tours and in independent testing, Tour Edge has created a more compact CBX fairway wood model featuring a deeper-face with less face progression called the CBX T3.

The Exotics CBX T3 is already a winner on the PGA Champions Tour, when a prototype version was in the bag of the 2018 Chubb Classic winner in Naples, FL. The Exotics CBX T3 has been in play by eight different players on the PGA TOUR Champions as a prototype and has also made its way into play on the PGA TOUR recently in the hands of a 4-time PGA TOUR winner.

The Exotics CBX T3 is an ideal fairway wood for usage off the tee on tight holes and for those who seek a more penetrating flight off the deck.

  • The CBX T3 features a more compact head and a shorter surface area from heel to toe
  • The deeper face and higher CG of the CBX T3 makes this the perfect fairway wood off the tee and for those who seek a more penetrating flight off the deck
  • Less face progression than standard CBX fairway wood
  • Compact 162cc head in the CBX T3 provides a classic profile while delivering the same lower launch angle and low spin rate as the 167cc CBX fairway wood offers
  • Available in 3 lofts – 13.5, 15.0 and 16.5 degrees

Exotics CBX Technology 

  • Exotics CBX is world’s first Titanium face, stainless steel, carbon fiber sole club ever designed!
  • ADVANCED BETA TI CUP FACE is thinner and stronger to deliver the longest-hitting fairway wood on the market today
  • CARBON SOLE WEIGHTING helps move weight precisely to deliver more power with lower spin
  • VARIABLE FACE THICKNESS delivers Exotics legendary power from all over the club face
  • SPEED RAMP SOLE minimizes turf interaction to maintain maximum club head speed through impact
