Adams Super Hybrid

Here are some pics of the new Adams Super SS and LS Hybrids.

Adams LS Hybrid:

According to Adams Golf the VST in the sole increases CT to 250. They also added:

  • Refined crown slot creates higher launch angle without increasing spin for longer carry distance.
  • Titanium crown and face + stainless steel sole + VST = maximum face hotness.
  • Matte white crown with contrasting PVD face increases apparent club size and ease of alignment for increased confidence at address.

Adams S Hybrid:

According to Adams Golf  the Cut-Thru VST in the sole increases CT to 230 creating an ultra hot stainless steel hybrid.

  • Refined Crown Slot creates higher launch angle without increasing spin for longer carry distance.
  • Matte White Crown with Contrasting PVD Face increases apparent club size and ease of alignment for increased confidence at address.

    From a neuroscience standpoint at least the word “super” conjures up subconscious positive thoughts.

    If y’all would do your research the reason the crown graphic is the way it is is cause Adams was bought out by TaylorMade so of course it’s going to look like TM graphics

    I love my A12 pro hybrid. It’s rediculously easy to hit straight and has great distance. I’m sure these are at least as good but I agree, I can’t take the white crown. I looked at the TMAG drivers and they look dingy. The graphics and the lines on the driver make it look even worse. Give me black or at least a choice of the color I want. How hard can it be to offer both colors?

    My black Adams A3 25 hybrid is great.
    I’m sure when i need a 23 or 19 a black Titleist 913 will do just Super!

    The graphics are more subdued than the ones on the Taylor Made products, so these may be alright. Too bad TMaG is turning Adams into a clone manufacturer so they can say in a couple of years that Adams will no longer be due to too much duplication of product.

    I’ll stick with the a12 tour hybrids for now. These look like a real performer, but I can’t stand looking at anything white, and agree they should offer in matte black.

    taylor made bought adams golf said they would operate separately but the stuff they are putting into adams is taking away from the greatness of adams

    Everybody said the same thing when TMAG introduced the white driver, and now it’s the most popular driver in the world. I have his these woods and they are ridiculously long. TMAG is also doing the graphics on their woods and it is because they frame the ball well. If the staff players that have already tested these clubs are excited about using them then I think people will be ok with them.

    Ditto with all. I wonder if you can get ’em without the stupid graphics?? Or at least go all out and put a big red valentine in the middle…. Seriously, I am glad I got my A12’s before this transition.

    I agree with you all. TM impact is evident. It’s a shame because ADAM made great looking equipment before. All about brands and how they look on the PGA tour. White is taylormade.

    I wonder who the numskull was that figured they would put distracting graphics on the crown? Really. They’re not the only manufacturer to put unnecessary graphics, but this is among the worst.

  14. Mike

    Dec 12, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Does it seriously say “SUPER” in bold letters across the crown? What a joke. Adams what have you done?

  15. Adam

    Dec 12, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    I agree. Why don’t these companies wake up all the way. They make headcovers look old and simple, clevland makes an older looking driver, every good player wants something clean looking, I NEVER play Taylor made, even their blades look weird in the bag. SIMPLE AND CLEAN, titleist understands somewhat. I bet these will be amazing and launch the ball. I love these hybrids because I can hit them just as far with 1.5 inches less on the shaft, I just HATE the color. How hard is it to offer them in matte black for 20 bucks more, special order, I would order one

    These look like the burner from a couple of years ago – crown is awful

    the graphis on the crown are awful. I cant believe anyone would follow taylormade on this one.

    Here we go…enough with the white driver, wood, and hybrid heads. I knew this was gonna happen when TMAG took over. Matte black finish please!!!!!

    Dec 12, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    And so the Taylormade influence begins…graphically at least

    I think i could lie with the graphics if it doesn’t cost $300.

Cobra launches King Forged Tec Black and King Black Utility irons

Published

on

We first spotted Cobra’s new King Forged Tec Black irons (in both One-length and variable length) and King Black Utility irons (in both One-length and variable length) at the 2018 PGA Show. The company wasn’t dishing out any information related to the clubs at that time, however, electing to await for the official launch to provide details.

Well, Cobra officially launched the clubs on Tuesday, so we now have all of the tech info, specs and more.

Read below for all of the details, and click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the clubs in our forums.

King Forged Tec Black irons

Cobra first launched its Forged Tec irons in 2015; “Tec” stands for Technology Enhanced Cavity. They used five different materials in the club head to produce an iron with more forgiveness and distance.

The 2018 Forged Tec irons have gotten a material upgrade with a new Forged 4140 Stainless Steel face, allowing them to be made thinner and produce greater ball speeds across the face. They also have the new “dimonized” black finish that appeared on the company’s King Forged MB/CB irons in the past (and the irons that Rickie Fowler uses). Cobra says the finish is more durable than any black finish on the market.

“The handsome new Dimonized Black Metal (DBM) Matte Finish boasts the industry’s most durable satin black finish ever, reducing glare and providing extreme wear resistance while maintaining the look and feel of a classic forged iron,” Cobra said in a press release.

Additionally, the irons have tungsten weights to lower CG (center of gravity), and move CG more toward the center of the face, and they have carbon fiber medallions to dampen vibrations for a softer feel.

Forged Tec Black One Length

At the 2018 PGA Show, Cobra representatives said that One-length irons represent at least 60 percent of all its iron sales. Yea, wow. So it’s no wonder why Cobra is coming out with Forged Tec Black One-length irons in addition to its variable length offering.

The one-length irons sets match the weight and length of the 7 iron throughout the set, and have progressive tungsten weighting to achieve different launch characteristics — that means the longer irons will launch a bit higher, and the shorter irons a bit lower. New in this set is also progressive lie angle configurations; the longer irons will have a more upright lie angle, while the shorter irons will have a bit flatter lie angle.

The goal here is to allow golfers to take one swing no matter what the number says on the sole of their irons, but still produce desired results.

Both of the Forged Tec Black irons come equipped with Cobra Connect (powered by Arccos) in the butt end of the grips so golfers can retrieve data on every shot they hit during a round of golf or practice session. Golfers who purchase a set of these irons will also receive enough Arccos sensors to put in the remaining clubs in their bag, as well.

The irons come stock with steel True Temper AMT Tour White shafts, with a powder-coated black finish to match the black club heads, or graphite UST Recoil ES SmacWrap shafts. The 7-piece sets (5-PW, GW) sell for $1,099 in steel or $1199 in graphite, and will hit retail on April 6.

King Utility Black irons

Cobra also announced the launch of its King Utility Black irons, including variable length and one-length options.

They’re each made with Cobra’s familiar PwrShell face technology, which adds stability around the perimeter to make the clubs more forgiving while also allowing the faces to be constructed thinner. The faces use forged 455 high-strength stainless steel inserts to optimize ball speed across the face. Also for greater ball speeds, they have full, hollow-body constructions, and they have Tungsten toe weights (67-73 grams in the variable length irons and 90-94 grams in the shorter, one-length irons). For more precision and consistent spin, they have CNC milled faces and grooves.

The utility irons are also adjustable, with +/- one degree of adjustability using their MyFly8 hosel.

They have black PVD coats to achieve their black finishes, rather than the dimonized finish of the Forged Tec irons. Like the Forged Tec irons, however, they come equipped with Cobra Connect in the grips.

The Utility Black irons hit retail on April 6, and will sell for $219 in graphite and $199 in steel. The variable length heads will be available in 3 (18-21 degrees) and 4 (21-24 degrees) irons, while the One-length irons are available in 3 (18-21 degrees), 4 (21-24 degrees) and 5 (24-27 degrees) irons. Each come stock with steel true Temper AMT Tour White shafts with black powder coating, or graphite UST Recoil ES SmacWrap shafts.

The Elder and Younger 2-Ball, #teamkiradech, and a very boring wedge on the Honda Classic range

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the 2018 Honda Classic at PGA National’s Champion course  in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. And there was plenty to see on the range Monday.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat, making his first U.S. start since the 2016 Web.com Finals, was in his glory. We got WITB looks at (the very yellow bag) of Brandt Snedeker, Gary Woodland, and Chesson Hadley, too.

Here are a few of the best shots from t-minus three days until tournament time.

Chesson Hadley is gaming this superb, decade-old, lead tape-laden, Odyssey 2-Ball.

We also spotted Odyssey’s latest 2-Ball offering, the Exo Two-Ball. No word on whether Mr. Hadley is upgrading…

Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s putter cover is everything you’d expect (and perhaps more).

The leader of #teamkiradech also has his emoji self embroidered on the back of his shirt. This would only be made better if emoji Kiradech also had an embroidered emoji on his shirt.

Chesson Hadley is also gaming one of Vokey’s new SM7 wedges with a bit of weight removed in a very boring fashion.

As if there weren’t enough yellow in this picture… Banana Snedeker?

All joking aside, you gotta love Snedeker gaming a Tourstage X 5-wood.

…with this wear mark, no less.

Laundry service for Bronson Burgoon, please?

Chad Campbell loves three things: UNLV, shaving cream, and Arnold Palmer. The Palmer-Barbasol thing makes sense, as the King reportedly abhorred facial hair on professional golfers (really).

A lovely assortment of Piretti covers. It’s probably frowned upon as a professional to walk away with this whole bag, but tempting nevertheless…

Ditto: Bettinardi.
