Batavia, IL (May 4, 2015) – Tour Edge today introduced a brand new product in the Exotics CB PRO family, the CB PRO U hybrid. Created with the infamous Slip Stream™ sole of the CB PRO fairway wood the U hybrid is a mini version designed for speed and powerful performance. The limited edition U hybrid is a game changer.
“After the success of the CB PRO fairway wood, I was asked countless times if I was going to put the waves on another club, said David Glod, president and founder. “Working with a more compact, hybrid club head took many hours in R&D to engineer, but I’m confident the U hybrid was worth the wait. It is already gaining traction on the PGA Tour and we are excited about what’s to come.”
The new patented Slip Stream™ sole is redesigned for even faster speed by minimizing turf contact regardless of the attack angle and position of the head at impact. The reduced wave length on the sole, compared to the original CB PRO fairway wood, allowed engineers to design new heel and toe cavities. The new cutouts in the U hybrid promote even less turf interaction and greater playability from all turf conditions.
In addition to the U hybrid’s unique sole design, the setup at address has been modified for a more Tour preferred look. Compared to the E8 hybrids the U’s leading edge is closer to the shaft for increased workability.
The CB PRO family of products includes fairway woods (CB PRO), driving irons and irons (CB PROh), a wedge series (CB PROs), and now a hybrid (CB PRO U).
The CB PRO U hybrid features a Carpenter 475 forged cup face combo brazed to a hyper-steel body. Exotic’s tradition of combo brazing the cupped face with a hyper steel body means that every single gram of excess weight is eliminated from the face and shifted to the sole for a lower center of gravity position in the compact head.
The unsurpassed technology found in the CB PRO U is being combined with one of the hottest shafts available; The Second Generation KURO KAGE™ Silver Series features the High Density Prepreg: with up to 15% more carbon fiber and much less resin (20% vs. 33%) than standard prepreg, there are fewer “gaps” and “voids” in the prepreg creating more consistent performance, increased stability and better feel with less harshness.
The CB PRO U arrives in a red velour lined decorative box, standard with an Iomic grip, and a soft luxurious leather head cover. Tour Edge’s Exotics CB PRO U hybrids are available right hand only, 17°, 19°, and 21°. Every Tour Edge club comes with a lifetime warranty. Suggested retail is $249.99, and projected to be in stores June 1, 2015. For more information, call (800) 515-3343 or visit www.touredge.com.
