Tour Edge Hot Launch 524 vs Hot Launch 523
By bridging the gap between the affordability and impact of the Tour Edge Hot Launch 523 Series with the game-changing technology of the Exotic models, Tour Edge has brought forth the Hot Launch 524 Series. This affordable club set can take nearly any golfer’s game to the next level. Differing from its Hot Launch 523 predecessor, this Hot Launch series is juiced with Tour Edge’s unrivaled technology seen throughout their Exotics models.
Considering we have the Extreme and Competition models to look at, let’s see what’s new in both models of the Hot Launch 524 Series. While a lot of this game-changing technology has been seen in the Hot Launch 523 Series, Tour Edge threw in a few new and elevated additions.
Tour Edge Hot Launch E524 Series
The Extreme (or "E") model has been designed for high-level performance improvement. Drivers and hybrids received a development in the clubface. Their shallow club face is paired with a larger hitting area. This combination will trigger higher and longer flying shots with easier launch. In the Extreme 524 irons, a new club shaping was implemented to move more weight lower in the head. This change provides a higher launch and MOI (moment of inertia – the higher a club’s MOI, the less the head will twist at impact on balls hit away from the sweet spot).
Last but not least, the wedges saw a couple improvements as well. With a deeper undercut cavity bringing a lower center of gravity, golfers will find more forgiveness and satisfactory launch from around the green. The wedges were also enhanced with an even rounder leading edge for smoother interaction with turf, grass or sand. This had been seen on the previous Hot Launch 523 Series but has been adapted further for optimal consistency and accuracy in all wedge shots.
Tour Edge Hot Launch C524 Series
The Competition (or "C") model focuses more on basic player game improvement, aiming to progress any golfer’s game. Drivers, fairways and hybrids all come loaded with Ridgeback Technology. Ridgeback Technology seeks to improve alignment of the club at impact for straighter shots with better feel and sound. Additionally, golfers will find added structural stability to maximize power across the entire face. This feature is paired by a Sole Rail Design, which provides a lower center of gravity that will produce higher launch with optimized spin rates and ball speed. In fact, Tour Edge data states that this rail design has lowered the center of gravity by 8% compared to the C523 series. The combination of this technology will bring a balance of easier power and forgiveness to all players on the course.
In the C524 irons, Tour Edge added a 10% larger area of VIBRCOR TPU into the deep undercut pocket. The VIBRCOR technology creates remarkable feel and added power to every shot, making these irons both speed inducing and feel enhancing. It also creates perimeter weighting around the whole club head to additionally bring maximum forgiveness, ball speed and power. Inspired by Tour Edge’s famous series of Exotics, the C524 irons come with a new cavity filled design that combines the best of form and function to anyone seeking game improvement.
Finally, the C524 wedges also saw a bit of development from their C523 predecessor. A new high toe pad creates a higher center of gravity that produces far better control and higher spin rates, aiding in any lie around the green. An even more rounded leading sole will promote smoother contact with turf or grass to avoid digging. Such a small change can have the biggest improvement to golfers’ games as they seek to navigate the difficulties of tough lies and bunkers.
