  1. Adam, Richmond, Virginia Cobra Fly Z+, Matrix White Tie X-stiff SS 105-108, carry 265-275
  2. Handicap index - 4 Hogan has always meant to me uncompromising excellence. In everything he did, Hogan did it the right way. He did it with hard work, precision, and focus. He practiced and played with passion and purpose. And most of all, Hogan never made excuses. After his devastating car accident, he was pretty much written off for ever living a normal life again, much less playing competitive golf. As a physician, one fact, in particular, amazes me about his recovery. Apparently because of the trauma to his abdomen, pelvis and legs, Hogan developed severe deep venous thromboses in hi
  3. I'm in. I had a set of Apex 2's back in the day and loved 'em. I just witched from blades (Adams MB2s) to Mizuno MP-15s and, while I like the MP-15s, they just don't feel as solid as the blades did, although they are much more forgiving. If I could find a blade a smidge more forgiving than the Adams, I'd be all in. So pick me!
  4. Current wedges: Vokey Spin Milled 52, 56 and 60* Handicap: 3.5 Age: 42 Right handed Club Specs: standard loft, lie upright 1*, wedge flex shafts. Multi compound grips. Pick me, pick me!
  5. Very true! However, for my course, another 10-15 yards on the 3w puts it into play nicely off the tee on several holes. So it works perfectly for me. And if I need to work it my former distance, I just choke down a few inches.
  6. I hit the RBZ against my Callaway FT 3w. Keep in mind the FT is 4 years old and generally a great 3w. On the launch monitor the RBZ was 1-2 yards longer. That's it. I also tried, and subsequently bought, the Adams XTD. I didn't use a launch monitor for comparison but took them head to head on the course. I consistently hit the XTD 10-15 yards longer than my FT and with a higher, more boring trajectory. I was putting balls out on the course I've never approached, even in the height or summer. Keep in mind my 3w ss is about 110 mph, and hit my ft off the tee about 260 with the XTD going 270-275
  7. I'd call it the "SpyGlass" award. You could give the winner a little glass driver, iron, putter, etc. to commemorate. Or at least a digital representation of said glass.
  8. “This acquisition reflects our commitment to continued growth in the golf category,” said adidas Group CEO Herbert Hainer. “The proposed combination of Adams Golf and TaylorMade-adidas Golf brings together two highly complementary sets of brands, combining Adams' focus on game-improvement as well as senior and women golfers with TaylorMade-adidas Golf's focus on the younger and the low-to-mid handicap golfer.” I find this statement laughable. Sure, the perception is that Adams is a game improvement company with really nice hybrids. The reality is that Adams' whole lineup is on par,
  9. I totally agree. I hit the Adams XTD 14.5 with stiff Project X 8A2 several times over the weekend and I must say I was amazed. I hit bomb after bomb off the tee and the fairway. Keep in mind I have about 112 swing speed and usually hit my Callaway FT 3 FW about 260-265 off the tee and 245-250 off the deck. Sunday I hit at least 3 tee balls at least 270+ on carry alone. I hit the XTD in places my FT has never sniffed off the tee. Even in Summer. Also it was 45-50 degrees and a little blustery. Imagine what it will do in warm weather! The ballflight was a high boring flight that carried for mile
  10. It's funny that you mention that since I found out the exact same thing comparing RBZ to my 3 metal. I have a 4 year old Callaway FT with a Mitsubishi Javlnfx stiff shaft. I've loved this 3 wood and have never found another that I hit as well. Going up against the RBZ with stock S shaft was basically a wash. I hit the RBZ, on average, 1, count 'em, 1 yard longer! Slightly higher ball flight (by a smidge) and basically the same spin. Ballspeed 1 mph faster. Keep in mind the Mitsubishi shaft is a mid launch, low spin shaft which I love. So I basically find their claim of 17 extra laughable since
  11. If you are looking for low spinning shafts, I'd look no further than KBS C-tapers. Easily the best low spinning shafts on the market. Great flight, feel, control and distance.
  12. It sounds like you would like the Adams MB2s with the KBS C-taper. I have that setup right now with an S+ flex and its been a revelation. They are without a doubt the best iron/shaft combo I've ever hit. Workable, check. Forgiving (for a blade), check. Longer with a very controllable ballflight, check. Nice solid feel, most definitely check. I really have yet to see a downside to this setup for me. Keep in mind I have a tendency to hit a high spin ball prone to ballooning in a headwind and these help a bunch. My 5 iron swing speed is around 97 MPH or so and have used PX flighted 6.5 in the pa
  13. I say stock vs stock comparison. Supposedly shafts are tuned to the heads. In an ideal world, anyway.
