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.

    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

    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!!!!!

    And so the Taylormade influence begins…graphically at least

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

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Wilson’s new FG Tour V6 RAW irons (yes, they will rust)

Published

on

Wilson came out with its FG Tour V6 irons in 2016, but these new Raw versions have a different look… and with time, they’ll have a VERY different look.

The new FG Tour V6 Raw irons have an unplated finish, and they’re designed to “develop a unique patina based on age, exposure and use over time,” according to Wilson. This gives each iron a unique look, and one that’s far from the clean cut original FG Tour release that had a chrome finish (which won’t rust).

In addition to the rusting effect, the irons are different because they have a copper badge in the cavity that will eventually match the color of the golf club over time. Here’s a graphic mock-up of how the Raw irons may look overtime.

Like the original releases, the irons have tungsten weights and mass behind the impact area for a “forged feel” and “improved feedback,” according to the company.

The FG Tour V6 Raw irons are a custom option on Wilson.com, and are available through Wilson’s premium partner accounts as of today, Tuesday, June 19. According to Wilson, the Raw irons “are a very limited production run,” so only a certain amount of sets will even be built.

Chief Engineer Chris Voshall on Mizuno’s approach to the Tour and some of the most insightful pros

Published

on

Mizuno’s Chief Engineer Chris Voshall chatted with Johnny Wunder on the latest episode of the Gear Dive.

Voshall offers innumerable interesting anecdotes–particularly interesting is the development of the JPX 900 iron for Brooks Koepka and Voshall’s discussion of his work with other Tour talents.

In the excerpt below, however, Voshall discusses Mizuno’s approach to Tour players and further, whose feedback has proven particularly valuable.

“We’re not making them something special. If they’re coming to us, it’s because the product is that good…They come to us instead of us having to go to them…that’s one of the really exciting things.”

Voshall indicated that players on Tour play essentially the same Mizuno products that are available at retail.

“If the Tour van is out of inventory, they can reach out to us…and we’ll get them more heads. There’s nothing unique about what they’re playing, which I think speaks to the customer…you can almost not trust marketing around the whole world these days, but for us to say ‘there’s nothing different’…that’s something we really hang our hat on.”

With respect to excellent testers on Tour, Voshall sang Luke Donald’s praises, as well as Jhonny Vegas and Brian Gay.

“I love working with Luke. Luke, especially when you’re talking irons…turf interaction, that’s the thing he’s looking for. So with Luke, you’ve really got to speak to him about how it feels, how it enter, how it exits [the turf] and how that’s causing the ball to launch. You could give him the exact same head with a slightly different sole grind, and he will love or hate one versus the other. He’s really cool to work with on that front.”

“Jhonny Vegas…he’s raw power. He goes at it. He wants to slam the club into the ground as hard as he can and see where it goes. He very much on the opposite end of the spectrum as Luke, who’s very much an artist out there, trying to work it, trying to do different things.”

“One of my favorite guys to work with, even though he’s not on staff anymore, is Brian Gay. He knows his game. He knows equipment. Speaking to the fact that he’s been out on Tour as long as he has and has the wins he has with the length he hits the ball, it shows that he does not miss a shot. And he knows everything…when he makes a comment on a club, that’s the one that I take most serious.”

For the rest of Voshall’s insights and perspective, give the full podcast a listen below.
