An industry-first cross-cavity technology helps keep errant-struck shots on their proper path. Constructed for players of all skill levels, XTD irons boast a center of gravity (CG) moved off the face to generate gear effect similar to a hybrid. The result is corrective spin to straighten off-center hits. After contact, a face impact damper dramatically decreases vibration. Direct pressure on the back of the face produces the crisp sound of a forged iron, while some competitors use a simple badge. This also encourages players to drive through the shot. The XTD series houses the company's thinnest cast-iron face to date, promoting maximum deflection and ball speed. Adams remains committed to finding greater distance through technical advances, while retaining proven design characteristics, such as a 28 Degree loft on a 6-iron. Club engineering promotes ideal launch angles throughout the set, with explosive height off of the face, penetrating ball flight and more preferable descent in attacking the pin.
Top Customer Reviews
I called Adams but the customer service line was for TaylorMade/Ashworth/Adams/etc... and spoke with a representative. Granted, I don't have a Mitchell Machine, but my method of measuring loft and lie is very damn close because it is based on simple math and is consistent enough with only about 0.2 degrees variation. The PW is 42.6 degrees loft and there's no doubt about it since the spec is 44 degrees. The Taylormade representative said he couldn't check on the acceptable tolerance because the XTD irons were made before the Taylormade acquisition, and that they got rid of most of the Adams staff and that he'd have to send numerous emails to find an available Adams engineer to answer my inquiry. Looking at the 2016 Golf Digest hot list, it seems Adams didn't have any clubs to submit for evaluation and Adams' website doesn't show many new clubs after the 2014/2015 models. So it seems Taylormade essentially wiped out Adams in favor of their 3-6 month product lifecycles (SLDR is the only driver you'll need, here's the R15!!!, no wait, M1!!!, no wait, here's the M2!!!). Hopefully Adams will still be around and not just as a shell of its former self.
Overall: 4/5 stars, the grips are OK - some seem to hate it, I don't mind it. The shafts feel great, and the head designs are superb. I just didn't appreciate the extremely strong PW which is basically a 9 iron at this point. I also couldn't find a 5-PW regular graphite set so I had to pay the extra money for the 4 iron in the 4-PW set. Luckily it seems I am able to use the 4 iron. The clubs are on average 15 grams lighter than the TMAG Rocketbladez/Speedblade irons, even though the Matrix Program Q85 shafts are all 85 grams (same as the steel 85 gr TMAG shafts).
