I don’t know if I’m more excited about this new premium lineup from Adams in regards to their high performance or the fact that they aren’t white (sorry TM). The speculation rumor mill has been running overtime this year now that Taylor Made is now running things down in Plano but apparently Adams now has even more resources (both cash and talent) to take this amazing lineup to the next level.
Check out these spy pics of the Adams 2013 XTD drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. It appears that Adams has gone slots galore (even in its forged irons) to make themselves the company with the hottest clubs in golf.
The 2014 XTD driver, fairway woods and hybrids each feature two slots (one on the sole and one on the crown), which resemble the “cut-through” slot design that Adams included on its latest Tight Lies fairway woods.
The forged irons also feature a slot in the sole, which is positioned closer to the face than TaylorMade’s RocketBladez irons (remember, they are cast). It’s an interesting move that Adams has stepped up with a forged players iron before TaylorMade, which is Adams’ parent company.
In another bold move, the 2014 XTD drivers, fairway woods and hybrids are rumored to come stock with Matrix’s Q3 “Red Tie” shaft, and the entire line will include Iomic’s Sticky 2.3 grips.
Adams XTD Driver
The deep-faced driver is adjustable, and features a screw in the sole that will be used to tune swing weight. Adams is known to produce extremely low-spin drivers, and the 2014 XTD appears to be no exception.
