New Limited Edition “Straight from the Tour Van” Exotics Pro 721 Metalwoods Announced by Tour Edge

BATAVIA, IL – Tour Edge, the pound for pound industry leader in performance and innovation, today introduces their new limited-edition Exotics Pro 721 Series: the Pro 721 Driver, Pro 721 Fairway and Pro 721 Hybrid.

Only 1000 of each will be made available to the end consumer in this special small batch “Straight from the Tour Van” series.

The more forward Center of Gravity (CG) Pro 721 metals were designed for the players with faster clubhead speed to produce low-spinning, penetrating shots.

The all-new designs feature more compact heads and with deeper faces that sit open at address for the driver/fairway and perfectly square at address for the hybrid.

The tour-inspired metalwoods showcase the extremely popular and highly effective Ridgeback support system in a new matte finish on the driver and fairway metals, while the hybrid features a matte finish stainless steel crown.

The Pro 721 metals were designed with the feedback from the 120 PGA Tour professionals who have played Tour Edge over the past few seasons, including over 25 players choosing to play Exotics drivers in tournament play.

The new Exotics Pro 721 metalwoods will be available through select Tour Edge retailers and custom club fitting locations on August 13, 2021.

All three of these models feature:

Tour-Inspired Shape – The deeper face, shorter heel to toe and compact front to back ensures low spin and a penetrating ball flight. At setup, it presents the perfect visual profile for power and workability.

Extreme Heel and Toe Flight Tuning System – The clubhead features a Flight Tuning System (F.T.S.) adjustable heel and toe weights on the sole. Adjusting the F.T.S. dual weights in these ports that are placed to the extreme heel and toe of the clubhead can drastically affect ball flight and shaping shots in this compact, low-spin design.

Ridgeback Support System and Dual Carbon Wings – The Ridgeback technology creates more ball speed on center hits and on heel and toe hits, while providing world-class feel and power.

Diamond Face 2.0 Technology – The Pro 721 utilizes Diamond Face 2.0 technology on its high-strength Beta Titanium face. This major breakthrough in face technology features thick and thin diamond shapes or “mini-trampolines” behind the face, producing full-face forgiveness with faster ball speeds and better performance on off-center hits.

Sound Diffusion Panels – Sound Diffusion Panels placed strategically inside the club head vastly improves the acoustic engineering of the entire new Pro 721 metalwood line up. The Sound Diffusion Panels were modeled using Finite Element Analysis software to research, fine tune and perfect the acoustical properties of the driver.
