(RELEASE) - Tour Edge announces that two more new products representing four new Tour Edge models were honored with 2018 Golf Digest Hot List awards.
The Exotics CBX fairway wood and the Hot Launch 3 Triple Combo Iron set (HL3 Hybrid, HL3 Iron-Wood and HL3 Iron) have all been added to the list of current Tour Edge clubs that have received the annual award.
These latest Hot List recipients increase the current Tour Edge in-line award winning count to 11 models.
“The CBX wood is a game-changer,” said President and Founder David Glod. “The distance gains from the independent test are phenomenal. Then we saw the spin numbers and started calling it the ‘spin-killer’ around the office. Everything has lined-up for the CBX, the design, compilation of materials, and CG location to make it our next best fairway wood.”
Exotics CBX Fairway Wood - From the pages of Golf Digest:
The Verdict: The CB stands for "combo brazing," the technique that made Exotics fairway woods a cult favorite in 2004. The technique fuses the face to the rest of the club without welding to save weight and allow the marriage of a flexible, lightweight titanium cup face and a stability-enhancing steel body. The carbon-composite panel near the back of the sole moves the center of gravity level with the center of the face and forward to lower spin.

“The HL3 Triple Combo set combines three different HL3 models in a perfect seven-club blend,” said Executive Vice President of Tour Edge John Craig. “The set earns classification as a maximum game improvement set due to the ease of use and added distance it provides, but it really stands out as a set that will bring efficiency and control to your golf game. It’s not so much improvement, but it’s the dramatic reduction of common mistakes that sneak into every round provided by this three club blended concept. I think that’s something that every golfer can get behind, making the HL3 Triple Combo a visionary set that every golfer should be taking a hard look at.”
HL3 Triple Combo Iron Set From the pages of Golf Digest:
The Verdict: Tour Edge applies common-sense thinking in addressing golfers' issues. By breaking the iron set into a combination of two hybrids, two hollow-body irons and three cavity-back irons, help is provided where it's needed most—in the longer clubs—and control is available in the scoring clubs. The hybrids have a maraging-steel face to generate distance, and the hollow-body middle irons have substantial weight low to assist getting those shots airborne. The 8-iron through pitching wedge are traditional cavity-backs. Plus, the price is the epitome of the word bargain.

“We are proud that our products keep resonating with the testers of the Hot List,” said Tour Edge founder and club designer David Glod. “Currently, we have four fairway woods, three hybrids and iron-woods and four iron sets have now been honored by Golf Digest available to the golfing consumer.”
