The tour edge hl4 hybrid is a great club for any golfer looking to get more distance and forgiveness out of their irons. The HL4 is very easy to hit, a low CG and cup face design make it very forgiving while still giving you plenty of distance.
What Tour Edge is Doing Here
The HL4 series fills a niche that Tour Edge feels is not being filled by the market, specifically the budget minded golfer who plays a handful of times a year and is looking for clubs that are going to give them a solid performance and technology upgrade. They are targeting this segment with a line of clubs that offers reasonable pricing, realistic fitting and rapid order fulfillment.
They also have a 48 hour delivery guarantee on all custom fit orders which is unprecedented in the industry. That is the idea behind the Hot Launch 4 line of clubs that will be available August 1st, but before we go into the tech story for the HL4 Hybrids and HL4 Iron-Woods, let’s take a closer look at what Tour Edge is doing here.
What we saw in our testing of the HL4 Hybrids was that they were very forgiving and had a soft feeling to them. They were very easy to hit, and a lot of feedback was given when making misses in the center of the face. They were also very easy to square up.
The HL4 Iron-Woods are a bit longer than the HL3 editions, and this is due to a thinner forged face that produces more face flexing, as well as a larger Power Channel on the sole of the iron-woods that deliver added forgiveness on shots struck lower on the face. They also are easier to launch as a result of the redistribution of weight into the sole that lowers the CG and raises the MOI.
