When most of us think about Adams Golf we think “Own Your Second Shot”, mostly because they have dominated the realm of hybrids and fairway woods. But what about your third shot, or Par 3 tee shot? Adams Golf feels your pain and has come out with their newest hybrid irons, which are designed for slower swing speeds. Adams says they are perfect for the player who has a swing speed of 85 mph or below. So let’s take a look and see if they might be the right fit for your game.
Carlsbad, Calif. (October 23, 2014) – Adams Golf, makers of the No. 1 Hybrid Irons in Golf, today announced its new Idea Tech Hybrid Iron set – designed specifically for golfers with slower swing speeds who want to launch the ball high and achieve greater distance than traditional irons.*
The Idea Tech Men’s set includes: 3-5 Hybrid; 6-7 Driving Hybrid; and 8-PW Hybrid Irons.
“From the highest lofted iron to the lowest lofted hybrid, each club in the new Idea Tech hybrid iron set is intended to enhance the golfer’s enjoyment of the game,” said Michael Fox, Director of Product Category Management. “This set was specifically made for the golfer who doesn’t generate a lot of speed, but wants to experience the thrill of hitting high and straight launching golf shots. The engineering of this set makes this type of performance attainable for golfers with slower swing speeds.”
By adding an external 24-gram weight to the back of the hybrids (3-5), engineers were able to position the center of gravity lower and further back than any previous Adams hybrid. This design gives slower swing-speed players higher launch and increased spin, helping them keep the ball airborne longer.
The Idea Tech Hybrid features Adams new Ghost Slot Technology
Introduced in the previous generation, Idea Tech Hybrid Irons (6-PW) feature an enhanced wrap-around slot that stretches from the toe across the sole of the club and into the crown. This enhanced slot design expands the sweet spot across the entire face, delivering better performance on off-center strikes. In addition, a refined barbell-shaped slot on the crown reduces stress on the face while delivering enhanced ball speeds upon impact, resulting in the fastest and longest Adams Idea hybrid and iron combination in history.
Low and back CG produces high launch and spin to help slower swing speed players
The set features a new progressive shaft design – wherein shaft tip diameters get thinner towards the lower end of the set. This technology makes it easier to generate speed and launch on the downswing, making it ideal for slow swing speed players
