Tour Edge Launches Exotics 723 E and C Series of Metals and Irons

Tour Edge Announces High-Tech Exotics 723 Metals Designed to Fit Every Possible Swing Type

BATAVIA, IL – Tour Edge, the pound for pound industry leader in performance and innovation, introduces their new Exotics 723 Series of metals.

Following the path of the previous Exotics, the tour-winning 722 Series, the Exotics 723 launch features two separate drivers, fairway and hybrid designs designated as Extreme (E) and Competition (C) spec. The new E723 metals are MOI+ designs built for maximum forgiveness, while the new C723 designs are all about harnessing power and dialing in low spinning distance. The Exotics 723 E and C drivers feature all-new design and technology called the Flight Tuning System or F.T.S. F.T.S. was developed to provide Tour Edge’s largest fitting matrix ever produced.

One of the top design goals for the Tour Edge R&D team was to provide one of the most adjustable drivers currently available in the marketplace. With the player centric C723 Driver, the Flight Tuning System technology and all its available weight options total 4,860 different fitting configurations for the clubhead. This is due to the ability to swap different weights both on the back sliding track new to the 723 Series, and by having both front and back weights that are interchangeable. This unprecedented level of adjustability allows the golfer or custom fitter to dial in flight direction and desired level of MOI and spin.

The new ultra-premium, high-performance Exotics 723 Series metals will be available worldwide on March 1, 2023. Pre-Sale starts February 8th and will go through February 28th.

The Exotics C723 and E723 Drivers

Exotics C723 Driver

This ultra-premium 445cc profile and deeper face of the C723 is designed for the competitive player to produce low-spin power. The C723 Driver features a two-tier front/back Flight Tuning System with the back weight on a new sliding track that allows for both extreme MOI and flight/spin rate manipulation.

The C723 design offers the ultimate in power, feel and forgiveness through Tour Edge’s breakthrough 360-degree Ridgeback™ and Diamond Face VFT ™ technologies.

The C723 Flight Tuning System, a two-tier Front/Back Weight System with the back weight on a new sliding track, allows for both extreme MOI and flight/spin rate manipulation. The C723 Driver will come standard with a 5-gram weight in the front and a 15-gram weight in the back. This allows for adjustability at a rate of +/- 300 RPMs of spin rate when the weights are switched. The MOI range adjustment is from 5300 g/cm2 to 4900 g/cm2, making for an available adjustability of 11% at your fingertips. It’s a 5% increase in MOI over the previous C design.

Sliding the weight on the adjustable track allows for a +/- 7-yard heel and toe bias in directional flight. For example, if you were to slide the weight all the way to edge of the Fade position, your flight would adjust seven yards to the right for a right-handed player, and vice versa for the Draw setting. Nine different individual weights that are transferable to every club in the 723 Series will be available from 5 grams to 21 grams.

Adding to its adjustability the adjustable hosel allows golfers to adjust the loft +/- 2 degrees and lie angle through a range of 3 degrees.

Exotics E723 Driver

This ultra-premium 460cc profile designed for maximum forgiveness takes MOI to the absolute extreme! The E723 Driver’s extreme low rearward CG position produces an extremely high MOI of 5600 g/cm2, the highest MOI driver Tour Edge has ever produced.

The E723 Driver features a Flight Tuning System on a new sliding track, while bringing the ultimate in power, feel and forgiveness through Tour Edge’s breakthrough 360-degree Ridgeback™ and Diamond Face VFT ™ technologies. Flight Tuning System / MOI+ -The Flight Tuning System is a weighting design on a sliding track features a 20-gram weight at the extreme trailing edge on the sole of the clubhead.

Sliding the weight on the adjustable track allows for a +/- 10-yard heel and toe bias in directional flight. For example, if you were to slide the weight all the way to edge of the Fade position, your flight would adjust 10 yards to the right for a right-handed player, and vice versa for the Draw setting. Nine different individual weights that are transferable to every club in the 723 Series will be available from 5 grams to 21 grams.

Adding to its adjustability the adjustable hosel allows golfers to adjust the loft +/- 2 degrees and lie angle through a range of 3 degrees.

The E723 Driver’s extreme low rearward CG position produces an extremely high MOI at 5600 g/cm2 MOI, the highest MOI driver we have ever produced. This leads to increased stability at impact and tighter dispersion. It’s a 5% increase in MOI over the previous E design.

Both the C723 and E723 Feature:

  • 360° Ridgeback Technology – Tour Edge engineers created a thinner, more refined Ridgeback activation for 723 with increased structural properties and 360-degree perimeter weighting. The Titanium Ridgeback spine running from the center of the face through the crown now wraps around the entire perimeter to frame the entire clubhead. Adding Titanium to the perimeter, along with Ridgeback down the center, allows more support on off-center hits to increase face deflection. The additional perimeter Titanium has boosted MOI significantly. This Ridgeback spine and now 360-degree activation acts as a brace for the entire clubhead to produce more power across the entire face, including the extreme perimeters. The 723 Ridgeback design is 15% thinner than the previous 722 model, while offering greater structural support properties.
  • Quad Carbon Tech – Tour Edge engineers replaced extra Titanium from the crown and sole by creating Quad Carbon Tech in four different areas of the clubhead. The 723 features 5% more carbon fiber than its previous iteration. The addition of Quad Carbon Tech saves considerable weight in the clubhead, allowing for the 360-degree Ridgeback design, an increase in MOI, greater face flex in the heel and toe areas so off- center hits achieve greater power. This weight savings has been re-purposed to the ideal location to help with creating optimal CG location.
  • Diamond Face VFT – The new Diamond Face VFT is made up of diamond shapes of variable face thickness behind the face. There are 44 total diamond shapes featured on Diamond Face VFT, comprising seven different thicknesses in an interweaving pattern. The face thickness of the new Diamond Face VFT is thinner on the heel and toe on the 723 Driver.

Tour Edge Announces 4 New Iron Sets as part of their Exotics 723 Series

Exotics C723 (Player’s Distance), E723 (Game Improvement), Pro 723 Forged and BL Prototype Blades to Launch March 1

BATAVIA, IL – Tour Edge, the pound for pound industry leader in performance and innovation, announces four new iron sets as part of the all-new Exotics 723 Series.

Today, Tour Edge announced the all-new Exotics 723 Series irons, including the more compact C723 Iron and the feel enhanced E723 Iron. Both the Extreme (E) and Competition (C) ranges feature new technologies and setups designed to produce different playing characteristics targeting a specific player. The performance and design goals of the Exotics 723 Irons from Tour Edge R&D are to provide every level of golfer with two extreme distance irons that feature full-face forgiveness and ball speed with a perfected sound and feel.

Tour Edge is also launching the new Exotics Pro 723 Forged irons and the special-release Exotics BL Proto Blade irons as part of the 723 Series. The Pro 723 Forged irons came about from the players on the PGA TOUR Champions requesting an iron featuring player-shaped forgiveness. This led to a slightly larger forged cavity design. A VIBRCOR badge and over an hour of machining time on each iron head is the calling card of these forged beauties.

The BL Proto iron is a true prototype iron set that was designed by Glod with immense feedback from Tour Edge staff player Bernhard Langer. Langer has played several of these prototype irons in tournament play in the 2022 season.

The new ultra-premium, high-performance Exotics 723 Series irons will be available for purchase worldwide on March 1, 2023. Pre-Sale starts February 8th and will go through February 28th.

Exotics E723 Iron

This ultra-premium extreme distance iron is loaded with tech, including Tour Edge’s revolutionary VIBRCOR™ technology and breakthrough Diamond Face VFT ™ technology that give these irons incredible power and feel.

  • VIBRCOR Technology – A high-grade TPU strategically injected into the deep 360-degree undercut pocket to create this unique speed-inducing and feel-enhancing internal technology. The E723 Irons feature more VIBRCOR in the clubhead to further enhance feel and create more speed. It also now features visible VIBRCOR on the back of the clubhead. VIBRCOR TPU significantly alters the feel of the clubhead, produces faster ball speed, dampens sound and shock, and creates perimeter weighting around the entire clubhead for maximum forgiveness and power off the face. VIBRCOR allows for this sleek, extremely long and forgiving iron head to have the support, sound and feel of a forged iron in an Extreme Game Improvement iron body.
  • Diamond Face VFT – Different diamond shapes of variable face thickness behind the face function as minitrampolines to create faster ball speeds and expand the sweet spot to outer areas of the face. There are 99 total Diamond shapes featured on Diamond Face VFT that cover the entire face of the E723 Iron. Diamond Face VFT features three different thicknesses in an interweaving pattern and features a face thickness reduction on the heel and toe for even greater forgiveness. The mini trampolines that make-up Diamond Face VFT create faster ball speeds and an expanded sweet spot. The full-face increase in Diamond Face VFT coverage to the extreme heel and toe coverage ball speed on off-center hits while also greatly aiding forgiveness on these strikes.
  • 360° Undercut Design – The design is a one-piece high-strength steel body with a 360-degree Undercut Design. What does it do? It lowers the CG to produce a higher launch and increases face flexing, ball speed and overall distance across the entire face. The multi-material electroform cap now features carbon fiber for added perimeter weighting.
  • Extreme Toe Weighting – Extreme Toe Weighting achieved on the high toe in the rear portion of the club along with a new toe weighting pocket. This dual toe weighting elongates the sweet spot to achieve a higher MOI and strategic CG positioning right behind center face and further optimizes the sound and feel of the iron.

Exotics C723 Iron

This ultra-premium player’s distance iron loaded with tech like the revolutionary VIBRCOR™ technology and Tour Edge’s breakthrough Diamond Face VFT™ technology that gives these irons incredible power and feel.

  • VIBRCOR Technology – A high-grade TPU injected into the hollow-body pocket to create a new speed inducing and feel-enhancing internal technology. VIBRCOR performance gel injected into the hollow-body cavity produces faster ball speed, dampen sound and shock at impact and to create perimeter weighting around the entire clubhead for maximum forgiveness and power off the face. VIBRCOR treatment creates the feel of a full flush cavity iron in a sleek, extremely long and forgiving iron head that has the support, sound and feel of a forged iron in a player’s distance iron body.
  • Diamond Face VFT – Different diamond shapes of variable face thickness behind the face function as minitrampolines to create faster ball speeds and expand the sweet spot to outer areas of the face. There are 94 total Diamond shapes featured on Diamond Face VFT that cover the entire face of the C723 iron.
  • Military Grade Maraging Steel L-Cup Face – A high-strength forged Military-Grade Maraging Steel Face is plasma-welded onto a 17-4 stainless steel body. This ultra-high-strength steel is used in aerospace, with applications including landing gear, helicopter undercarriages, slat tracks and rocket motor cases and other applications which require a high strength-to-weight material. This allowed Tour Edge to produce a significantly thinner face, the thinnest in an Exotics iron to date. It also helped dramatically increase face flex across a greater surface area of the club face. The L-Cup Face acts as a hinge designed to improve accuracy and protect off-center ball speed.
  • Hollow-body Design with Player Preferred Shaping – The hollow-body Exotics C723 Iron features a 5% smaller clubhead with a shorter blade length and a thinner topline. The more classic shape of the C723 features more traditional lofting from iron to iron. This hollow-body iron design of the Exotics C723 Iron offers extreme perimeter weighting to create the distance and forgiveness of a metalwood combined with the feel and control of a forged iron set. The hollow body design allows for increased face flex, and the ability to have a thinner face and a deeper CG in a thin-sole iron design.

Exotics Pro 723 Forged Iron

This slightly larger forged cavity-back iron came about via tour feedback asking for player-shaped forgiveness. The ultra-premium Pro 723 Forged irons are CNC milled to precise tolerances and the face grooves designed to maximize performance throughout the set is also CNC milled to offer the thinnest face possible without sacrificing feel.

  • Player Shaped Forgiveness – A slightly larger forged cavity design based on tour player feedback. The larger CNC milled cavity allowed Tour Edge engineers to move critical weight behind the center of the face and to the lower portion of the head for maximum forgiveness while maintaining a thin top line and classic look at address.
  • Meticulous Machining Process – Every iron head spends over an hour being CNC milled to exacting tolerances. After the forging process, the faces are CNC milled to precise tolerances and the face grooves are designed to maximize performance throughout the set. The heel and toe pockets in the cavity are also CNC milled to offer the thinnest face possible without sacrificing feel.
  • VIBRCOR Filled Cavity – A VIBRCOR TPU badge located inside the cavity. The VIBRCOR dampens shock and provides a buttery muscle-back feel while aiding perimeter weighting and overall forgiveness.
  • Center Cavity Pad – A thick pad of extra steel in the center of the cavity behind the face. The added weight in the center of the cavity allows for center hits to have greater power. It also allows the heel and toe pockets of the cavity to be precision milled as thin as possible to provide maximum forgiveness and feel on off-center contact.

Exotics BL Proto Iron

Tour Edge chief designer David Glod worked directly with Bernhard Langer perfecting every millimeter of these milled forged blades. The long irons feature some special tech with two tungsten plugs directly behind the face.
