The Tour Edge Exotics E8 Hybrid offers a Forged Cup Face, an Adjustable Sole Weight that aids in CG position, and a Power Grid that flexes at impact to increase ball speeds off of the face. Like the past E8 offerings, the head is very clean and simple with a flat-black colorway. The E8 features the UST Recoil Graphite shaft, which is not offered by very many other OEM’s, even though it has been a great success in irons since its release.
Who’s it for?
The Exotics E8 will fit a large group of players. With the adjustable sole weight (kit sold separately), one can change the CG to produce different ball flights. With the stock weight installed I would suggest this head would fit all but the high swing speed players.
At address, the E8 Hybrid looks quite differently than other hybrids. I see a longer, more square face design. Longer meaning that the toe to heel area has less of a bulge and roll. I noticed this on the driver and fairway woods, also. To me, this look appears more normal on those two, but on the hybrid it definitely presents a unique shape to my eye. I am not saying it’s a good thing or bad thing, it’s just worth noting its difference compared to other hybrids I tend to see. I have tried a wide variety of hybrid shafts, and I really liked the Recoil shaft because it produced some of the tightest dispersion of any of the shafts that I have tried. This set up produced a solid ball flight with easy to launch conditions. The head might look slightly different, but it produced solid shots time-in and time-out, it just wasn’t particularly long.
