It’s official, the CBX forged player’s irons have arrived!

Batavia, IL (March 16, 2017) – Tour Edge, Golf’s Most Solid Investment, is pleased to officially introduce the Exotics CBX forged irons, a MATERIAL ADVANTAGE in a player’s club.

Now ready for a full introduction into the market – the CBX forged irons feature new, softer materials, CNC milled face and cavity for the utmost in stability and forgiveness without sacrificing the feel and workability which is imperative in a player’s iron.

The Exotics CBX irons are triple forged from Japanese S25c Carbon steel delivering a softer feel on every shot and substantial forgiveness in a blade. Tour Edge engineers CNC mill the faces for perfect flatness. The square grooves are also CNC milled for 100 percent USGA compliant grooves. Every groove is computer laser engraved ensuring that every club head will pass USGA inspection. The CBX forged irons give players confidence knowing each club being used is USGA approved.

The cavity in the CBX forged irons is designed for the most advantageous MOI and forgiveness by CNC milling to insure the deepest cavity possible in a player’s iron. “The CNC milling allows us to control the depth precisely ensuring we take as much material out and place it in the flange area for more forgiveness and higher launch,” explained David Glod, President and Founder of Tour Edge Golf.

The CBX forged irons are designed for performance and boast a premium traditional shape with a moderate offset for distance with workability. A dual level flange gives enhanced feel, especially on shots struck low on the face, and good acoustics from a forged cavity.

Caddy For A Cure is a non-profit organization that raises money to support notable charitable groups through its professional golf programs. “In addition to facilitating involvement in the game and rehabilitation through our program, we were able to achieve a new benchmark this past year with a mortgage-free home giveaway to a wounded service member and his family. This hallmark achievement has fueled the drive to expand our military support this year, and we’re confident the CaddyBash at the Azalea House will be a big step in that direction” says Russ Holden, Founder of Caddy For A Cure. “We are honored and grateful for this amazing opportunity and show of support by UA Eyewear and Azalea House.”

The event is set to begin at 7:30 pm EST and tickets are available to purchase for $75.00 on
