Redesigned Slip Stream sole returns with more curvaceous power in the F2 fairway wood
(Batavia, IL) – Tour Edge Exotics today announced the release of the much anticipated second generation CB PRO fairway wood, the CB PRO F2. The F2 looks noticeably different with a smaller, matte black club head, and a redesigned Slip Stream sole to increase ball speed. The new F2 fairway wood, limited edition, brings the best technologies of golf together in one unique, sublime package.
“The Slip Stream sole is the design I am most proud of, so far,” said David Glod, president and founder. “The foundation of Exotics is to bring the best technology in the industry to players worldwide and that is my goal with each new product introduction. The CB PRO family of clubs is our premium line and the new F2 fairway wood only adds to that reputation.”
The sole DNA of the F2 has been completely remodeled to maximize the player’s club head speed. The new patented Slip Stream soles waves are reduced in length to further minimize turf contact regardless of the attack angle and position of the head at impact. Bold, new heel and toe cavities provide less turf interaction, ideal weighting, and improved workability. The F2 is exceptionally fast and smooth through the turf from any lie.
The CB PRO F2 features a 159cc club head, slightly smaller than the original for a Tour preferred size and shape. The refined size has allowed engineers to adjust the center of gravity closer to the face increasing ball speed. Discerning players will appreciate the perfect balance of technology and tradition.
The F2 fairway wood’s premium beta titanium cup face is five percent lighter than the previous model due to a more extreme variable face thickness design. Removing the weight from the face and redistributing it in the heavier hyper-steel body produces peak ball speed and distance in a fairway wood. The Exotic’s tradition of combo brazing the beta-titanium cupped face with the hyper steel body means that every single gram of excess weight is eliminated from the face and shifted to the sole for a lower center of gravity position in the compact head.
The unsurpassed technology found in the CB PRO F2 is being combined with the hottest shafts available; The Second Generation KURO KAGE Silver Wood Series features the same Profile and High Density Prepreg as the original KURO KAGE Silver shafts, but with the addition of TiNi wire in the tip section. The result is a series of shafts that will deliver the lower launch and lower spin of the original KURO KAGE Silver profile, but with added stability and increased energy release through the impact zone, adding explosive power to the signature, KURO KAGE Silver profile.High Density Prepreg: with up to 15% more carbon fiber and much less resin (20% vs. 33%) than standard prepreg, there are fewer "gaps" and "voids" in the prepreg creating more consistent performance, increased stability and better feel with less harshness.
TiNi Wire: A super-premium, highly elastic fiber with a unique ability to stretch and then immediately spring back to its original shape. TiNi in the tip-section creates strength and stability at impact, for tighter shot dispersion and increased energy release through the impact.
The CB PRO family of products includes fairway woods (CB PRO F2), hybrid (CB PRO U), driving irons and irons (CB PROh), and a wedge series (CB PROs).
The CB PRO F2 arrives in a red velour lined decorative box, standard with an Iomic grip, and a soft luxurious leather head cover. Tour Edge’s Exotics CB PRO F2 fairway woods are available right hand only, 13.5°, 14.5°, 15.5°, 16.5°, and 17.5°. Every Tour Edge club comes with a lifetime warranty.
