The Hybrids Test 2014: Adams New Idea
Tech: A refined slot design increases ball speeds, creates higher launch and additional distance on off-centre shots.
What we said... James Ridyard: “More of a closed face than the Pro. More of a wood design than a hybrid, contrast between top and face works. Felt like a good swing weight, heavy. Slight curve to the leading edge works from rough and tight lies.” Joel Tadman: “Loads of forgiveness, solid feel but not overly workable. Slot on top appears more subtle on a larger head.” Peter Ward: “One of my straightest clubs, found it difficult to curve. Much more appealing to hit than my long irons.” Ross Nichols: “I don’t like the look of the slot, Easy to align. Like the feel of the tacky grip.”
Pros: Confidence-inspiring look and feel.
Cons: Not overly versatile or workable.
The numbers: Distance consistency: 9 Dispersion: 8.5 Looks: 7 Feel: 8 Forgiveness: 8.5 Versatility: 7.5
