Truly unique, the XCG5 features Tour Edge’s one-of-a-kind, combo-brazing to join the titanium face and body to an ultra-thin beta titanium crown. In fact, no other driver sold in the United States uses brazing. It’s too expensive and time consuming. Instead, most companies weld face plates to the body. This method doesn’t allow for full face flexion and maximum forgiveness like brazing.
The Exotics line continues to go from strength to strength. The XCG5 is no different. Its beta titanium crown material is ultra-thin and lighter than the previous carbon crown found in the XCG4. This material dramatically improves sound while allowing more weight to be added to the rear of the sole through our new Six-Point Perimeter Weighting System. This system features six weight pads that lower the center of gravity and move it deeper and further back in the sole for a lower center of gravity and greater accuracy.
Taking your ball from 0-60 in a millisecond, the Boomerang face is 12% larger than previous models. This high-tech design offers multiple levels of variable face thickness that supercharge the rebound effect from more points on the face. The V-shaped boomerangs allow for thinner and thicker areas on the face that produce a hotter launch and enhanced feel even on off center hits.
Power is also enhanced by generating greater swing speed. The aerodynamic shape and visibly sloped crown and sole reduce drag and improve airflow for faster swing speed. In addition, the XCG5 is available in a swing speed enhancing ultra-light versions and super-ultra-light version that is one of the lightest drivers on the market at 271-grams. The super-ultra-light features a sub 26-gram Winn Lite Exotics grip and Graphite Design 40-gram Tour AD shaft. The ultra-light version comes standard in the Fujikura Blur 50-gram and Aldila RIP Sigma-60 gram version with the Exotics White New Decade grip.
