While designing the XCG-4 irons our engineers were asked to design a club that would deliver the stunning performance that sets Exotics apart from the others. The result is an iron that boasts our thinnest face. Measuring less than 2.2mm the face has different levels of thickness to promote distance and enhanced feel. That combined with the dual tungsten weights behind the face produce our highest rebound rate and moment of inertia (MOI - the club’s ability to resist twisting) in an Exotics iron.
A deep, undercut cavity moves weight to the outer edges of the clubhead for enhanced forgiveness and a higher MOI. The deep undercut cavity, the wide sole design, the perimeter weighting and the tungsten sole weights help to lower the center of gravity, optimize the trajectory and enhance the MOI. The result is exceptional forgiveness and a six iron with a MOI of 2,750, exceptionally high for any iron.
Creating playability across the entire set, each iron in the set is engineered to its specific task including c.g. location, progressive offset, face thickness, and top line thickness for a perfect blend of distance and accuracy. In addition, the slight offset provides game enhancing forgiveness. Many golfers tend to have an outside-in swing path prior to contact, and the hands are slow to release. This leaves the clubface in an open position and the golf ball starts left and finishes right. The XCG4’s offset hosel allows the clubface an extra fraction of time to close and gives you a better chance to hit a straight shot.
