What we say...

An iron set with hybrids, transitional hybrids and irons all with Velocity Slots boosting distance and forgiveness. Wrap-around spots increase the size of the sweetspot by 44 per cent.

See how the irons got on in our 2015 Game Improvement Irons Test!

Adams' extensive research shows that most golfers typically hit the ball away from the center of the clubface (close to 80% of the time). To help get the most out of every shot, Adams has introduced the New Idea Combo Iron Set. This set is more forgiving and easier to hit where you need it most - across the entire clubface. The clubs have been designed to generate higher ball speeds and more forgiveness, especially on off-centre shots.

  • 3 out of 5 Newbie has a hack at 'em

    By Mark

    My first set of clubs other than the old Palm Springs hand me downs I started with. These are a great improvement over those. However 6 months later I'm considering a change up. There is something about the the 6 and 7 hybrions that just doesn't sit quite right with me. Perhaps it's the look at address. I recently came across a 1963 set of Macgregor blades where the 6 and the 7 suit me better. Funny because the 6 and 7 are what sold me on the Adams in the first place. Other than that no complaints except the driver. Replaced that with a Big Bertha fairly quickly. Major improvement in my tee shots.

    Probably one of the easiest irons to hit on test. The wide sole allows it to glide through the turf and reduce the effect of heavy contacts. The light feel and long shaft made distance seem easier to achieve.

    The large look doesn’t suit my eye but it’s hard to hit a bad shot with these. I got some of the highest flights on test so it might struggle into the wind, but distances were pretty consistent on a mix of strike patterns.
