Tour Edge Exotics E722 Fairway Wood Review

50 Words or Less

The Tour Edge Exotics E722 fairway wood is all about consistency.  Repeatable, long distance, shot after shot.  Very forgiving and easy to hit.

Introduction

“Feast or famine” describes the results most golfers get from their fairway woods.  If you’re tired of pulling the head cover off your 3W with a shrug and a prayer, check out the Tour Edge Exotics E722 fairway wood.  This club is built for a level of consistency most players could only dream of in their long game.

Looks

The Tour Edge Exotics E722 fairway wood does a great job of taking modern proportions and making them easy on the eye.  This is a long club from front to back, which is key to making it forgiving.  TEE gently rounded the shape rather than making it triangular, and this gives the club a look that’s more traditional than the size should allow.

What I like most about the E722 at address are the face markings.  There are score lines surrounding a diamond – a nod to TEE’s Diamond Face technology – and it frames the ball beautifully.  Additionally, the face is fairly shallow, which makes it look easy to hit off the turf.

The differences between the Tour Edge Exotics E722 and C722 fairway woods are not as dramatic as the two hybrids, but there are meaningful distinctions.  First, the E722 (left) sits square to a hair closed, the C722 is square to slightly open.  It’s a small difference, but face angle is a big deal to many golfers, so it’s worth noting.  Second, the E722 is longer from front to back.  Finally, the face of the E722 is about 1/8″ shallower than the C722 which makes it a little more inviting to hit off the deck.

Sound & Feel

When I made a good swing with the Tour Edge Exotics E722 fairway wood, the ball felt extremely light and quick off the face.  This sensation was enhanced by the impact sound which seemed to end as soon as it began.  The sound is quiet, mid-pitched with a hint of metallic, and seemed more suited to a players club than one this forgiving.  That said, I’m not complaining a bit because I love the sound.

Feedback through the hands and ears is good, but you do need to pay attention.  Mishits have a murky quality that’s noticeable but not obvious if you aren’t listening for it.  Similarly, you can feel the impact location if you’re tuned in, but all shots feel pretty solid if your mind is wandering.

Performance

It didn’t take long for me to start seeing a family resemblance between the E722 fairway wood and E722 hybrid.  If case you didn’t read that review [check it out HERE], that’s a very, very good thing.

For starters, the E722 FW has excellent ball speed that is extremely consistent across the face.  If you know Tour Edge Exotics’s history, that won’t come as a surprise, but it’s still worth applauding.  I found smash factors staying above 1.4 unless I struck the ball far onto the toe or heel.

The other key similarity between the E722 FW and hybrid is that both dare to be higher spinning than average.  While low spin gets all the buzz, golfers need spin to keep the ball airborne.  The higher spin combines with high, easy launch to create incredibly consistent distance.  My longest shots with the C722 FW were longer, but the E722 was much more reliable [full C722 review HERE].  I made swings that felt horrible and created 220 yards of carry.  That’s practically unheard of for me with a FW.

Finally, I found the E722 fairway wood to be very straight.  The high MOI produced by dragging more weight to the rear means that this club is very stable.  Even when I hit a ball off the heel or toe, it stayed in the fairway.  Only if I left the face wide open did the ball fly sideways.  That kind of predictability can give golfers more confidence to go for those long par 5s.

The Tour Edge Exotics E722 fairway wood comes with a huge array of shaft choices at no upcharge.  For players seeking something ultra-light, there’s the Fujikura Air Speeder at under 50 grams.  Fujikura also offers the Ventus Red and Ventus Blue.  Mitsubishi has a trio of TENSEI shafts – Orange, Blue, and White – in the 65 and 75 gram weight classes.  Tour Edge Exotics offers their Speed Tested recommendations to help players pick a shaft if they can’t get an in-person fitting.

Conclusion

Tour Edge Exotics has done a marvelous job offering players two unique ways to tame the longest holes.  If you’re a player who favors consistency, predictability, and forgiveness, the E722 fairway wood is very difficult to beat.  This club produces solid results, even when your swing is less than perfect.

    Thanks Matt for the great review. I think I may need to put these on my radar !

  2. Great review
    Really interested in upgrading my fairway
    Is this fairway adjustable for loft and lie?

  3. In terms of ease of hit and launch– how would you compare it to a Mavrik Max (I can now hit a 3 wood off the deck!)?

    Only issue I have the Max is it does sit closed– but layups into the wind on par 5s are doable now.

    The fun debate is whether to just get the 16.5 degree model (aka 4 wood).

  4. Matt,
    Do you think these would be easy to hit than a G425?

    • Matt Saternus

      Jay,

      I think they’re in the same conversation. With fairway woods, I think there’s also a wider allowance for “I find X easier to hit, but you may find Y easier to hit.”

  5. Matt,

    You also reviewed the C722 fairway wood. I know they’re 2 different animals, but did you prefer one over the other and why if so?

    • Matt Saternus

      Kevin,

      I can’t say that I preferred one or the other, personally. As you said, they’re two different things. I like that the C722 has a high ceiling, that’s fun to chase. It’s also fun to almost never see a poor result with the E722.

      Best,

      Matt

  6. Matt, How would you compare this club to the Calloway Rogue fairway wood? Noticeable difference?

  9. Bernie Reece

    Is a 4 fairway wood good for high handicapper for getting distance and height out of fairway.

    • Matt Saternus

      Bernie,

      The term “high handicapper” is too broad for me to say anything truly definitive, but, in the main, more loft is good for most golfers with regard to distance and consistency.

      Best,

      Matt
