Exotics C723/E723

What it does: For two different looking hybrids, these two share all the right technologies for making shots fly farther, higher and faster. Each uses a lightweight carbon-composite piece to cover the crown. This helps lower the centre of gravity for improved launch. A high-strength steel face insert and a cross-hatch pattern of different-size diamond shapes behind the face create additional flexibility. Finally, each model puts a 10-gram weight on the sole: it’s forward on the compact, better-player focused C723 for less spin and a medium launch, and on the E723 that weight is towards the back for additional stability on off-centre hits.

Why we like it: With all the impressive technology here, it might seem boring to talk about sole geometry, but hear us out. The keel-like shape to the bottom of these clubs benefits in multiple ways. The shape and the extreme heel and toe relief allow these heads to easily carve their way through the turf, and the sheer surface area lowers the CG to help golfers get the ball in the air. It might not be the sexiest attribute, but is there anything hotter than hitting and holding a green from more than 200 metres? We didn’t think so.

Lofts 17, 19, 21 (c723); 17, 19, 22, 25 (e723)

Reviewer profile

“I like the options based on clubhead shape. The shallow face makes the compact head much more playable. There’s a crispness off the face, not hollow like some.”
