Batavia, IL – Offered as the best replacement for long irons, the EX9 hybrid features the superior forgiveness of previous models combined with Exotics industry-leading technology - SlipStream sole, cup face, combo brazing - in a classic hybrid style.
The EX9 hybrid’s technology story begins with a maraging steel cup face with updated/improved Variable Face Thickness (VFT). The thin and thick compartments on the face are strategically positioned for optimal forgiveness in preparation for off-center hits. The VFT face is combo brazed with a heavier hyper-steel body to make the EX9 hybrid easy to hit from any lie.
The EX9 SlipStream sole features shorter ‘waves’ from front to back, dramatically reducing the amount of turf interaction – the result is a full-speed explosive impact. The heavier sole also positions the center of gravity lower in the head to help players launch the ball out of any turf condition. The center of gravity position combined with the innovative design of the Exotics SlipStream sole delivers legendary Exotics distance.
Creating the ultimate ball speed generator, the Power Grid has been reengineered deeper and much more narrow to increase the spring effect across all areas of the face. Notches along the back edge of the Power Grid provide thinner spots specifically designed to increase the rebound at impact for faster ball speed.
The EX9 Tour hybrid is offered in a gloss black finish and the suggested retail price is just under $200.00. Availability is set for mid-November, however pre-orders can be placed with an authorized dealer.
