The Batavia, Il. - based Tour Edge started mak­ing clubs 31 years ago, and year af­ter year the com­pany has lived up to its mantra of “bring­ing fu­tur­is­tic tech­nolo­gies to the mar­ket place” in small pro­duc­tion runs. The lat­est – CBX Fair­way Woods – come out this month. The clubs aptly come un­der the Ex­otics brand that Tour Edge in­tro­duced in 2004. Like its fore­run­ners, the CBX woods in­cor­po­rates ex­otic ma­te­ri­als to pro­duce ter­rific re­sults, mainly dis­tance. The CBX, for in­stance, has a “Beta Ti cup face brazed with a Hy­per Steel body” that the com­pany says pro­duces “per­fect launch and low spin com­bi­na­tion.” The new CBX de­sign raises the cen­ter of grav­ity to change launch an­gle and ve­loc­ity and re­duce ac­cu­racy spin rates. The new Speed Ramp on the Slip­stream sole in­creases speed. All man­u­fac­tur­ers hype their prod­ucts, but the CBX speaks for it­self most ob­jec­tive and non-par­ti­san prime player, Iron By­ron. Up against 3 met­als (15 de­grees) on the mar­ket, the CBX had the high­est ball rate, and great­est dis­tance – by a star­tling av­er­age of 16 yards! The CBX comes in four lofts (13.5, 15, 16.5 and 18 de­grees) shaft cus­tom pre­mium shaft op­tion at no ad­di­tional charge. The CBX sug­gested is $349.99.
