Limited Edition “Straight From the Tour Van” Exotics EXS Pro Forged Irons, EXS Blade Irons/Blade Wedges Announced by Tour Edge

BATAVIA, IL – The tour-inspired irons feature the very latest in golf club design innovation for the highest levels of ultra-premium performance from the company that has earned 22 victories and over 150 different players using their equipment on the PGA Tours.

These limited-edition Exotics irons designed by Tour Edge founder and Master Club Designer David Glod are fine works of craftmanship that utilize only the finest materials and precise CNC milling.

The goal of the new designs by Glod were to combine tour-level inspired looks and feel with advanced materials and innovation to produce the most forgiveness and distance possible in a player’s iron. The result was a new level of forged irons and wedges that cannot be found in regular production irons: individually milled irons made from Carbon Steel and engineered for players who look for the ultimate in control and shot shaping.

The new ultra-premium, high-performance Exotics EXS Pro Forged Irons, EXS Blade Irons and EXS Blade Wedges will be available for purchase on June 1, 2020 through select Tour Edge retailers and custom club fitting locations.

Exotics EXS Pro Forged Irons

The Exotics EXS Pro is a forged cavity back iron made with higher-grade Japanese S25C Carbon Steel that delivers a soft feel and maximum forgiveness in a player’s iron design.

The forged face is CNC milled for perfect flatness and the grooves on the face are also precisely CNC milled.

Classic Shaping – The shape of the EXS Pro Forged is more compact with a shorter heel to toe, yet with a slightly thicker top line than the EXS Pro Blade for more forgiveness, while still being on the thin side to maintain a tour-preferred player’s shape.

CNC Milling – The square grooves are CNC milled for 100 percent USGA compliant grooves. The cavity in the EXS Pro irons is designed for a higher MOI and forgiveness by CNC milling to insure the deepest cavity possible in a player’s iron.

Carbon Steel/Triple Forged Weight Pads – Forged 25C Carbon Steel is chrome plated for the highest-grade forged steel that delivers the best in looks and an extremely soft feel. A triple-forging technique provides a thinner center and creates heel & toe weight pads for more forgiveness and more consistent ball speeds.

Tungsten Toe Weighting – The stunning EXS Pro forged iron features a 10-gram Tungsten toe weight in the 3-6 irons. The Tungsten toe weight elongates the sweet spot even further for maximum forgiveness on the face of the long irons.

Acoustic Engineering – The cavity insert is electro-formed and combines steel, ABS polymer and a dampening gel for an improved sound and feel on the forged EXS Pro irons.

Exotics EXS Blade Irons Featuring Milled Forging

The Exotics EXS Pro Blade is a timeless muscle-back iron design that delivers a tour-preferred feel, while placing more of the buttery soft-feeling S25C Carbon Steel low and behind the hitting area for extreme versatility in shot making and shaping.

Classic Shaping – The EXS Pro Blade design calls for a narrow sole, a thin top line, a beveled leading edge and square toe design. These forged beauties also feature a shorter blade length, a cambered top line, and a progression into more compact scoring irons.

Pure Milled Forging – Designed with advanced CAD technology and pure milled forging, the EXS Pro Blades deliver a pure forged feel and sound. The micro-cavity, face and scoring lines are all individually precision CNC milled for the ultimate in responsiveness and control.

CNC Milling – Precise milling ensures every iron is USGA conforming, while providing the limit in depth in the scoring irons to provide additional spin. Milling on both sides of the blade creates an extremely tight tolerance and consistency from iron to iron.

Carbon Steel/ Dual Chrome Finish – The Japanese S25C Carbon steel is chrome plated with a dual finish; a high polish and a satin finish in all the milled areas of the clubhead.

Rounded Sole Radius – The sole of the EXS Pro Blade iron head features a rounded radius on the leading edge of the club head. This design greatly reduces drag and turf interaction through impact to ensure the utmost in consistency on every shot.

Exotics EXS Blade Wedge Featuring Milled Forging

The Exotics EXS Pro Milled Forged Wedges are forged from the buttery soft Japanese S25C Carbon Steel and are engineered to deliver exact distance control, maximum versatility, and superior spin.

CNC Milling – Individually CNC Milled face and grooves create maximum spin from advanced groove engineering that is 100% inspected to conform with USGA rules.

Milled-Out Center – The Center of Gravity (CG) was moved up in the clubhead with the milled-out center design. The milled-out center leads to more weight being positioned both up and down for distance control on shots higher and lower on face

Custom Sole Grind – The EXS Pro’s sole grind reduces bounce from the heel and toe so the wedge is extremely versatile at hitting a variety of shots, especially from difficult lies. This playability, combined with the classic shape and thin top line, makes this a true player’s short game weapon.

Flare Toe Design – A Flare Toe design in the EXS Pro Blade wedge places the center of gravity higher for a lower launch and more spin. A chamfer was added to the trailing top line of the wedge for a slightly thicker top line that moves weight up without being noticeable on the top line at address.

Dual Groove Construction – The EXS Milled Forged wedge utilizes dual-groove construction so the lower loft (50° – 52°) wedges are designed with deeper, narrower grooves while the higher lofts (54° – 60°) have wider grooves.

Stock Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 Wedge Flex

Grip: GolfPride Tour 360

All Tour Edge Exotics clubs are backed with a lifetime warranty that covers any manufacturer defects for the life of the product.

CODECHAOS “Nations Pack” Gives Golfers Something to Celebrate as Golf Returns

CARLSBAD, CA – While the world’s best golfers will have to wait one more year to represent their countries, adidas is making sure golfers everywhere can start showing their pride today. adidas Golf unveiled a collection of limited-edition CODECHAOS footwear models – the Nations Pack– giving players the opportunity to put their nation’s colors on full display the next time they are on the course.

The limited-edition footwear models represent five different parts of the world: the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, South Korea and Japan. Each model incorporates colors from their respective flags and are built on the latest CODECHAOS and CODECHAOS BOA® silhouettes. All colorways are unique, empowering players to be honorary members of each country’s team until the world’s best head to Tokyo in 2021.

The five models of the CODECHAOS limited edition are:

  • CODECHAOS – U.S.A. Edition
    Available in the U.S., Europe, South Korea and Japan only
  • CODECHAOS – U.K. Edition
    Available in Europe, South Korea and Japan only
  • CODECHAOS – Canada Edition
    Available in Canada, South Korea and Japan only
  • CODECHAOS BOA – Japan Edition
    Available in Japan, Europe and Canada only
  • CODECHAOS BOA – South Korea Edition
    Available in South Korea, Europe, Canada and Japan only

Announced earlier this year, CODECHAOS changes the definition of what a golf shoe can be by combining an athletic style with the technology that every player needs. It’s highlighted by the Twistgrip traction system, which was specifically designed based off data from heat-map studies on how players shift their weight throughout the swing. That means players always have the grip they need, exactly where they need it. The upper provides enough stability for both the weekend golfer and the tour pro, while the waterproof material means golfers can head to the course in any conditions.

The new footwear is available today in the U.S. and South Korea, with select countries coming soon*.

*Limited-edition models of the Nations Pack will be available in Canada on June 1 and in Japan on June 11. Models specific to Europe will be coming in June, so stay tuned for more details.
