The Tour Edge Exotics E723 driver is highly adjustable and very forgiving. Sliding weight and adjustable hosel work together to promote any shot shape you could ask for.
In my review, I said that the TEE C723 driver was a dream for tinkerers and gear heads [review HERE]. Thankfully, Tour Edge didn’t leave all the fun for the C players. The new Tour Edge Exotics E723 driver has a lot of shot shaping flexibility while keeping the focus squarely on forgiveness.
The address look of the Tour Edge Exotics E723 driver has several noteworthy elements but not one dominant feature. My overall impression is that this is a big club. It feels hulking behind the golf ball. It’s very long from front-to-back with a symmetrical, softly triangular shape. The two large panels of carbon fiber give it a visual calling card, but I didn’t find them distracting.
In the bag, my eye is immediately drawn to the Flight Tuning System at the rear of the head. Two more carbon fiber panels cover the majority of the sole and serve as the backdrop for the E723 and Tour Edge Exotics branding.
The E723 (right) and C723 drivers are as close in shape and size as any clubs in the 723 line. A close look does reveal that the E723 is larger – roughly 1/8″ longer from both front-to-back and heel-to-toe. This gives the E723 a slightly more stretched, triangular shape.
Sound & Feel
The Tour Edge Exotics E723 driver is one of the louder drivers I’ve tested this year. It has a sharp, mid-pitch “crack” with some pealing metallic highs. As you get away from the center of the face, the sound gets quieter and duller, providing very strong feedback on strike quality.
Like the C723 driver, the feel of a pure strike with the E723 is exhilarating. There’s a connection to the ball that not too many clubs can replicate. When you miss the center, the feel is balanced – a mix of solid and fast. Losing the feel of a pure strike is all the feedback you need to focus up on your next drive.
The Tour Edge Exotics E723 driver takes a significant step forward from last year’s E722 driver [review HERE] with the addition of the Flight Tuning System. The sliding weight at the back of the head can be positioned anywhere inside the track to promote a draw, fade, or neutral ball flight. TEE offers additional customization in the form of different weights. The stock weight is 20 grams, but you can buy weights ranging from 5 to 25 grams to dial in the feel and performance you prefer.
I started my testing with the weight centered and felt there was a small draw bias. Whether that was the club or my swing, what was inarguable was the consistency of the ball flight. Every shot started fairly straight with a small draw. The ball speed was very steady with mid launch and mid-high spin.
Shifting the weight out to the toe, there was a clear difference in the ball flight. The E723 never got to an “anti-left” feeling, but it took my draw swing and produced shots that were straight or fell a little right. I couldn’t hit a big draw or hook without a big effort.
With the weight in the heel, the draw bias became pronounced. My stock shot was moving harder from right-to-left, and even fade swings were turning over a bit. If I got the face closed at impact or struck the toe, the ball would definitely hook.
The other adjustable element is the hosel. Tour Edge Exotics gives players eight settings to choose from that will change the face angle, loft, and lie over three degree ranges. For the players that wants a true anti-left configuration, they can use a lower loft plus the weight in the toe to achieve this.
If you want to control your shot shape but never want to risk turning down the forgiveness, try the Tour Edge Exotics E723 driver. Between the hosel and the Flight Tuning System, you’ll have loads of options, but you’ll never lose the predictable distance this club produces.
