Guaranteed 20 Yards Longer. Really?

New CB3 Tour Fairway Wood from Tour Edge is guaranteed 20 yards longer

A fairway wood that’s 20 yards longer? Hard to believe but it’s true. For the last five years now, Tour Edge Exotic fairway woods have steadily built a reputation among golf’s elite as the longest hitting fairway woods in golf. The new Exotics CB3 Tour is no exception.  While a 20-yard guarantee might seem hard to believe, golf magazines around the country suc tee. In the July 2010 issue of Golf Magazine, one club tester gained 25 yards over his current fairway wood.

According to Tour Edge officials, the return rate on their guarantee program is less than 1%. Says vice president of marketing Jay Hubbard, “People really do gain 20 yards but even if they come up a little short and only gain 15 yards, they’re ecstatic!”

What makes the Exotics CB3 unique compared to other three woods? Hubbard commented, “The Exotics CB3 and XCG-3 fairway woods are unique in that they have a titanium cup face. All other fairway woods typically have a steel face. Think about it, we all use titanium drivers for added distance off the tee. Titanium does the same thing for golfers in fairway woods. That’s why the main feature of every Exotics fairway wood is a titanium cupped face. It helps you hit the ball farther.”  

When asked why other companies aren’t using the Exotics CB3 technology, Hubbard responded, “The Exotics combo brazing, no-weld, chemical bonding process is an expensive and difficult production technique that makes it much harder to mass produce in volume.”  The two dissimilar metals, titanium and steel, are chemically treated, pressed together, and vacuum heat cured for permanent bonding without welding. The intrinsic quality of the process is unparalleled, resulting in a lower and deeper center of gravity, greater spring off-the face, unheard of feel that’s not possible from a traditional welded steel club head.

Over the last several years Tour Edge has developed an expertise in joining titanium cupped faces to steel, tungsten, and other materials to produce some of the hottest, longest fairway woods in golf. The new CB3 Tour benefits from this experience. 

Boasting a forged 15-3-3-3 titanium cupped face that is lighter and more powerful than previous Exotics, the CB3 delivers undeniable real-world performance. The club’s new and improved variable face thickness includes a thinner perimeter ring around the striking surface making it the thinnest fairway wood face in golf. The result, according to Tour Edge and many others is one of the longest hitting, best feeling Exotics fairway woods yet.

The CB3 has breathtaking looks, compliments of its traditional looking pear-shaped design. But that’s where traditional ends. Inside, the club combines a high-tech, titanium cupped face with a heavier hyper steel body. Focusing entirely on performance, every single gram of excess weight is eliminated from the face area and shifted to the rear skirt and sole for a deeper center of gravity and jaw dropping performance.

For many PGA Tour veterans and elite amateurs, Exotics fairway woods are their secret weapon. One former US Open winner recently chastised his caddy for talking to other Tour players about his Exotics fairway wood. In fact, it is not uncommon for Andy Harris, Tour Edge Golf’s PGA Tour representative, to have players come off the course and ask him to build them an Exotics fairway wood because another player is hitting their Exotics fairway wood farther than they can hit their driver. 

Tour Edge invites you to take the distance challenge and discover for yourself the extra distance the Exotics CB3 delivers. If the CB3 Tour fairway wood doesn’t deliver 20-extra yards to your game, you can return it under the company’s 30-day play guarantee for a store credit or refund depending on the retailer’s policy.
