Since 2014, I have been gaming a Ping Rapture DI (2 iron 18*), which filled the gap between my 4 iron and 3 wood.  Off the tee it has been a beast.  However, fairway and rough was very lie dependent. 

I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of thie C721 hybrid giveaway that Golfwrx/Tour Edge put forth here on the website.   I received my 19* C721 w/KBS TGI 80stiff yesterday and I just

For the past few years my bag has been a mix of Callaway and Tour Edge.  Prior bag mix had Callaway driver + irons, TE fairway woods // current mix below a variation.

 

Things about TE: Does its own R&D, clubs come with lifetime guarantee - snapped shaft on a 2012 XRail 7W two years ago, TE replaced shaft for just cost of inbound postage. TE developed the cup-face technology used in fairways and hybrids, that OEMs now include in irons.

 

TE was founded in 1986 by former club pro David Glod. Besides owning TE, Glod was active for several years helping manage the Web.com Tour (now Korn Ferry).

 

TE has the Exotics line for cutting edge/futuristic design clubs, Hot Launch line for everyday golfers, and Bazooka for boxed sets/beginners sets.

 

As for comments this thread...

TE is on point for sure. To my eye, the hybrid set up just slightly closed. I couldn't get past that.

Interesting. I didn’t find that at all. Looked square to a little open to me. In fact, seemed easy to set it open at address. 

 

For hybrids in Exotics line, TE has always offered a square face. (TE's Hot Launch line for beginners and more recreational golfers feature offset versions).  Its CBX and CBX119 hybrids of a couple of years ago were touted by reps as "left-proof." Square to slightly-open face with robust shaft offerings.

 

As for remarks about it Champions Tour emphasis, is that bad? Lots of senior pros play them... and senior tour players have more in common with competitive amateurs than the main PGA Tour players. Plus, TE has greatly expanded shaft offerings the past three cycles, which should broaden appeal to more golfers.

 

One challenge for consumers: Not all the major golf retailers carry TE.

I was able play 45 holes this past weekend during a member-guest tournament.  The 18 hole practice round was rained out and the tournament rounds were overcast and rainy making the course play long and the rough thick.  I used the hybrid off the tee 5 times on 2 holes.  Hit the fairway 4 times and one just off.  Distance was and flight very consistent.  I did hit one high on the toe and was about 20 yards shorter than the others.  That said it was a total mishit, but still found the fairway.  I was also able to hit a couple times off the fairway and out of the rough.   I am much more comfortable hitting a 4 iron from the rough or fairway than a fairway wood.  Even my DI it was a little iffy.  I can say I had no issue with the hybrid.  It felt more like an iron than a wood from the fairway and out of the rough.  Out of the rough I just had to be careful not to get to steep, so I didn't pop it up.  So far, I have been very pleased with this club.  I have a couple more rounds planned over the next couple weeks and will continue to update.  I can say my Ping Rapture DI my be up for sale if things continue.  Biggest difference is versatility.

This club is quickly becoming my favorite.  Only used it twice tonight.  Off tee on an up hill into the wind hole.  Tried to play a low cut.  Over cut it a bit and figured I caught fairway bunker.  Was 25 yards past, which is where a well struck DI would have been.  Not that club is longer, but wind had no affect.  Other was a long approach to a par 5.  It is an elevated green that plays a good club - club and half longer.  I hit is over the green.  I am still trying to learn the distances, but my confidence on playing this club is very high.  The versitilty and forgiveness is much better than my DI.  I questioned how it would perform in the wind and it is even better than the 2 iron.  Tour Edge got this one right!!!!

Nice write up. 
I have the TEE CBX119 16* hybrid and I’m trying to dial it in a bit better now. I added 6g of lead tape to tighten up some of my flight issues. (Since it’s too light for my liking I end up hitting it low on the face more often then I’d like)

 

I have a Tensei Blue in the CBX119 . When I hit it flush, it’s a nice penetrating flight, lower than most and produces some nice ball speeds. It’s about 3-4 mph faster than the club it replaced which was my 18* Callaway Apex (2016) that had an Aldila 2kxv shaft at 1/2 over and 2* flat. 
 

TEE gets some talk here, but they are underrepresented as a whole. 
 

The TEE EXS PRO is the best hybrid I’ve hit in years……… it might kick the CBX119 out unless I get it dialed in a bit better. My shoulder is a bit messed up, but I’m able to make some full swings now with some minor swing changes, so today is my test of what stays and what goes in the bag shoot out

 

TEE CBX119 hybrid at 16* Tensei Blue X vs TEE CBX119 3/4 wood at 16.5* with Evenflow Blue 6.5

 

So far the 4 wood has the advantage. Similar dispersion, but I like the flight better off the deck. Not much difference in overall distance between the two, but the 4 wood is all carry.

I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of thie C721 hybrid giveaway that Golfwrx/Tour Edge put forth here on the website.

 

I received my 19* C721 w/KBS TGI 80stiff yesterday and I just got back from the range.

 

It is a rocket launcher with great feel. I was playing a Titieist TSI2 18* RDX Black stiff and the C721 is longer with a similar flight window.

 

I returned the TSI2 and the C721 will stay in the bag.

 

Big thank you again to Golfwrx and Tour Edge!!
