Tour Edge Golf Bazooka GeoMax Fairway Wood

By Jim Hagerty

Tour Edge Golf started in Illinois in 1985 and made its first club in 1987. By the 1990s, its original Bazooka line of titanium drivers was extremely popular. The clubs were reliable and inexpensive, allowing the company to gain significant industry attention.

Based in St. Charles, Ill., and still fairly small, Tour Edge continues its tradition of making quality golf clubs for much less than the market's more visible manufacturers. Its Bazooka GeoMax line of fairway and hybrid clubs, though no long manufactured, are known for its performance and attractive price. The 19-degree GeoMax fairway wood is a popular club marked by its back-weighting and forgiveness and still found on the secondary market
 

Clubhead Information

The GeoMax fairway wood clubhead consists of a stainless steel body. Back-weighted, the club contains a 25g tungsten weight at the back of the sole. Its face is made of forged Carpenter 455 stainless steel, made thin (2mm) to cause explosive action. The head is also made slightly longer, front-to-back, aimed at keeping impact twisting (MOI) at a minimum.

Shaft Options

The GeoMax line of fairway woods is available with special Tour Edge graphite shafts made by Grafalloy. The Light, Senior and Regular flexes have low kick-points for high launch. The Stiff and Extra Stiff offerings are made with mid torque and launch for faster swing speeds.

Performance

The Tour Edge GeoMax 19-degree fairway wood has significant launch power and is extremely forgiving. The 2mm face is responsive off the tee and from the fairway. The back-weighting makes the club especially fun to hit with controlled and mid-speed swings. The shaft-head relationship is true with precise kick-points, enabling players of all skill levels to get the ball airborne quickly.
