Going to give Adams a closer look...

Recommended Posts

Went to Golfsmith tonight to do some mothers day shopping (true story) with my daughter.  I took a spin through the club section and the Adams hybrid rack actually made me stop.  They looked far better than I remember.  I've never had anything against Adams....but never really had any interest either.  But...checking the hybrid line out makes me want to go back and try some out.

 

Anyone else out there playing or tried Adams hybrids?

I did. I demoed the adams hybrids when I was replacing my 07 burners a few months back. Felt good, head shape is very close what I moved to in the x2 hots. Sort of a stocky compact head shape. I got real consistent ball flights on the launch monitors at the shop. The pro models and the x2 hots I ended up with are real similar. I just couldn't keep looking down at the slot.

Half the PGA tour and 3/4 of the champions tour. :)

 

Aside from that I have. In fact I've bagged at least two Adams hybrids and often three the last seven years. I played from the back tees today, don't ask, so they got a workout. I just don't have the game any more to play from 7,100 yards at sea level.

Funny how I almost started my initial reply with a line similar to this! I'm clearly in the minority with my personal issue with the slot!

I picked up a 14° Super Hybrid in the plastic for $60 shipped and I'm in love with it. It replaced both my 3w and 17° hybrid, leaving room for another wedge.

I've been playing Adams hybrids for a long time.  I currently have 2 of the LSP's in my bag off the tour van.  Original Peanut shape with the slot technology is sweetness.

I have the original DHy in play at the moment, and the thing is amazing off the tee, for me, but I struggle a bit hitting it from thicker lies.  Just FYI...

If you're great off the tee how do you end up in thicker lies?

 

Couldn't pass that one up. :)

Love the Adams hybrids.  I used the Pro Gold for several years (2h, 3h).  Last year I updated to the Super LS (19*).  Great off the tee but I had a tendency to hook it sometimes and had trouble getting the high launch, soft landing I came to expect from a hybrid.  It could have been the shaft, though.  This year I traded it in on the 20* XTD-Ti hybrid with the Matrix Red Tie shaft and so far could not be happier.  It gives me the distance of the Super LS and the control and feel of the Pro Gold.

 

The slot does not bother me one bit, although the slot on the bottom of the club needs to be cleaned out after hitting off sloppy lies.  It's good from the tee, fairway, and rough.

Hit a whole bunch of them this morning on the launch monitor. 

 

After researching them online last night I went in there pretty darn sure I would want the Pro Mini.  Turns out I was spanking the Pro DHY better than the Mini or the Pro. 

 

It looks more like a game improvement iron than a hybrid.  That's fine with me really......I like the way it looks.  I ordered the 21Ëš and 24Ëš.  If they play like they did in the store I'll seriously consider replacing my 5i with the 27Ëš as well.  Very nice club!

I have been playing Adams hybrids since the A4s came out and currently have the 15* Super Hybrid in the bag as a 3 wood, 9031 Super Hybrid 18* and a DHY 24* shafted with an Aerotech Steelfiber.  As you can see from my bag I happen to like Adams products quite a bit.

      Testers Announced!
      These are the forum members who will be testing the Tour Edge Exotics CBX 119 Hybrid:
      @fozcycle @MattF @bens197 @dhartmann34 ______________________________________________________

       
      Hybrids have long been a love/hate club for many players.  Many love them and the forgiveness they offer, and many hate them for their tendency to hook.  Finding the perfect or even dependable hybrid is often an ever going process for many players.   It's also not one you see a lot on the PGA Tour.  But if you have spent any time watching the PGA Tour Champions over the past couple months, you no doubt have noticed two things. 
      1) A big tour presence by Tour Edge, in not only it's well established fairway woods, but more recently the  Exotics CBX hybrid popping up in the bags of Scott McCarron and others.  The club has been vital to McCarron as he has won two events in the last three weeks.   What makes this hybrid so attractive, well  we'll if a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a video must be worth at least 2,000.   So see for yourself
       So there it is, we're looking for four testers to test, review and keep a Tour Edge Excotics CBX 119 hybrid of your choice.  Follow the instructions below. 
      Per the OEM's request this testing is open to Right Handed Golfers in the US. 
      Do Not Quote this post in your entry:  Doing so may lead to disqualification.
      Provide the following information:
      First Name/City, State
      Handicap/SS
      Current hybrid model Played
      What loft you think you would choose and why
      We'll be picking the testers sometime next week so check back to see if you've been selected.  Good Luck!!

      CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS FOR BEING SELECTED...STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFO FROM ME

      Sit Down This is A Big One!! 
      What's your most effective club after your last iron and before your driver, 4-hybrid, 5 wood,  utility iron?  And how does that club fit with the rest of your clubs in that gap?  Were you fit for it?  Well according to the people I met with at PING at the PGA Show, most golfers don't pay as much attention to this area as they pay to the driver, irons and putter. Sure it may not be as thrilling as a driver fitting, and being covered up with head covers they may not bring the attention to your bag that shiny new irons do.  But properly fit and gapped, they absolutely will save strokes in your long game. 

       
      So we are looking for four testers to join myself in putting the latest line of PING G410 fairway-woods/hybrids/crossovers to test to see how they help improve your long game.  Which clubs will you be testing?  Well that's where part of the real fun comes in. Once selected, the testers will be set up with a FREE fitting by the local rep or an authorized top fitter in the area, for the gap between driver and irons.  When the fitter has determined the setup those specs will be sent to PING and you will receive the clubs to test/review and keep. 
      It's imperative that anyone that applies for this testing, understands and agrees that they will receive exactly what the fitter recommends, and not what you think you'd prefer or think you'd be more comfortable with. If you're not willing to put your trust in the hands of professional fitters, than this testing isn't for you. So put all egos aside and go into the fitting open minded. I know I did exactly that and was quite surprised and even more pleased at the results. I'll share my experiences and setup once the testing has begun. 
       
       
       

       
      Also just want everyone to know, while the recent partnership announcement between PING and Arccos is very exciting, they will not be an option for this this testing.  
      How to apply.
      This is important, so please follow these instructions carefully:

      1. If you haven't already, make sure you're a registered MyGolfSpy Forum member
      2. In this thread (and ONLY in this thread - please don't go back to the blog and apply - it won't do you any good!), tell us the following:

      - Your first name
      - City/State  
      - Your swing speed and handicap
      - Your current setup of FW/Hybrid/Utility,....for example:   17* Utility iron, 5 wood, 4 hybrid
      Right Hand or Left Hand


      This review opportunity is open to any golfer who resides in the US (due to fitting logistics).  We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back. 

      Please do not 'quote' this post when applying...
