Adams Golf has introduced a new line of fairway woods with a low profile design, and Adams signature Upside Down Technology. Like all Adams clubs, they’re designed to be extremely easy to hit.
I’ve always liked Adams’ products in terms of their ability to get the ball in the air, but felt that they didn’t give me as much distance as some other brands. I gave up my Adams GT 3 Wood when I started playing the TaylorMade R7 Fairway Wood largely because I thought it offered a better forgiveness/distance ratio.
I haven’t been able to try any of Adams’ new offerings, though, so it might be worth taking a look.
The full press release is below:
