TOUR EDGE HOT LAUNCH 2
SPECIAL ORDER PERFORMANCE ★★ ★ ★ INNOVATION ★★ ★ ★
VERDICT One of the first companies to adopt the concept of an all-hybrid set, Tour Edge continues its work in that area with the second iteration of its Hot Launch. The company has long believed the game is too difficult and expensive. This club addresses both issues. The seven-piece set is affordable and comprises all hybrids. (All-iron or combo sets also are available.) The heads are slightly larger than the previous version for extra forgiveness, and the thin, forged maraging-steel face produces more than enough ball speed. The bulk of the club’s weight is in the sole, which helps assist in getting the ball airborne. COMMENTS (M) Swallow your pride. These do make the game easier. High flight is automatic. (H) The wide soles make it almost impossible to hit fat.
