…but I can’t give up my HL 3 Driver!
I’m just an ordinary guy who has been playing Tour Edge clubs for about 8 years now and year after year I am amazed at the developments of one David Glod, founder and Master Club Maker of Tour Edge.
We hear it every year, from all the major manufacturers, this club is longer, that club is straighter, this one hits it higher and, oh yeah, the putter it rolls it truer. Blah blah blah…… nobody evr talks about it making easier and more affordable except Glod!
I have been as low as a 4 handicap in the days of playing and practicing. Over the past number of years on any given day I’m a 10 handicap. Until now.
Mid last summer I received my No Spin Tour Edge CBX Fairway Woods (3 &5) and Rescues (3&4). They are straighter and longer by 5 – 7%. Where I once could get my 3 wood to 230 yards, 240 to 250 is now considered reachable.
The year prior I was introduced to the Hot Launch 3 driver, it was love at first swing and although I have the new EXS driver and hit it well, not well enough to displace the HL3. When the HL3 came out at a retail cost of $199.00 US, I suggested to Mr. Glod that he has a problem – this club is too good!
Just a couple of months ago I replaced my Exotics E8 irons with the new EXS Irons. My 4 Rescue is my 185 yard club and when speaking to Don Heazel of Golf Trends Inc., Canadian distributor for Tour Edge, he advised that I would probably not need a 5 iron as my 6 iron would fill that gap and that all my irons would move up one club length. Well, Don knows his stuff. Sure enough all my irons are longer and now I have an extra wedge in the bag.
Sleek and easy to look at, the ball just jumps off the face of the club, high trajectory and a softer landing which is all one could ask for. And so while my handicap (official now) keeps going down, 8 now, Tour Edge continues to grow PGA Players playing and promoting the product.
As of the end of the 2018 golf season, Tour Edge had seen 12 wins, 50 top-five and 85 top-ten finishes among the PGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions, and Web.com Tours.
“The Champions Tour Players have always loved Exotics products and they are easier to work with then the PGA Tour because contracts are more open to adding other brands clubs to the bag,” Glod said. “We are a great fit to players’ bags on the Champions because our Exotics give these players more distance gain opportunities.”
Players such as K.J. Choi, David Duval, Matt Kuchar, Brian Gay, Luke Donald, Ryan Moore and Zach Johnson have trusted Tour Edge with providing them PGA Tour-worthy equipment during their careers.
“Recently, prices of clubs have increased almost two-fold due to a lot of economic reasons, so we are capitalizing on what we do best: state-of-the-art, great-performing equipment at a reasonable price,” Glod says.
Now the team at Tour Edge with the recent introduction of the Hot Launch 4 product line are tempting me to give the entire line a try. You know that at some point I will be trying these out – especially the new HL4 Driver.
Tour Edge Golf’s HL4 line continues to push the envelope on value-driven, custom-fit golf clubs
Years ago, Tour Edge Golf realized there was a big gap in the golf-club market. The gap that needed to be addressed, the company figured, was value-driven golfers who wanted to get the benefits of custom-fit equipment. After all, every golfer can benefit from custom-built clubs, but not every golfer has the budget to go into a premium fitting shop and pay premium prices for that experience.
And that’s how Tour Edge found a winner with its Hot Launch line of products. Using a nationwide network of 750 fitters, Tour Edge can turn a consumer fitting into a set of clubs with a 48-hour turnaround. Instead of waiting a week or more for custom-built clubs, consumers can get fit near them, have the specs turned over to Tour Edge’s team in Illinois and have clubs in their hands two days later at a reasonable price.
Now, the company has upgraded its Hot Launch line with the HL4, a series of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, iron-replacements and irons that work for the overwhelming majority of golfers.
With the HL4 line, a new driver has been engineered to offer maximum forgiveness with a high moment of inertia found on higher-priced drivers, along with premium technology all in a lower-priced package. The HL4 driver comes with two heads — one with minimal offset and one with more offset for players who slice the ball. Who else does that??
In the HL4 fairway woods, the company tried to design a steel-head fairway wood that’s lighter and thinner promoting higher ball speed. Sole weight and a shallower face with a deeper head profile, promote higher launch and more MOI.
Like the driver, the fairway woods are available in straight and offset models.
Hybrids and Iron-Woods
Almost every amateur should have a hybrid or a long-iron replacement of some kind — dubbed an iron-wood by Tour Edge — in their bag. Long irons are hard to hit for most players.
The cup face is designed to give more spring-like effects at impact for more distance. A high-toe face design delivers greater forgiveness across the face.
The reason Tour Edge wanted to get all of this info out in bits and pieces is because there’s a lot going on with the Hot Launch 4 line. But that’s the best part about it. You can get a whole bag for a reasonable amount of money!
And, when it comes to the irons, you have three sets to choose from, starting at $420 and going to $600 for a set, depending on your specs and which set you choose. All dollar values in US Funds.
Pound for Pound – Nothing Else Comes Close!
Dollar for Dollar – Nothing Else Comes Close!
GET FIT! SPEND LESS! PLAY BETTER!
