Adams Super LS Driver

Below are photos and tech specs of Adams new drivers, fairways woods and irons for 2013. The  products are available in two versions — LS and S.

According to Mike Fox, director of product line management for Adams Golf, the LS is Adam’s premium line, which features all of Adams cutting edge technology and targets better golfers. The S line targets golfers looking for game-improving equipment and more modest price points.

Tech Specs: Adams Speedline Super LS Driver (Retail: $399)

  • Offers a mid-launch and low spin (lower launching and lower spinning than Adams’ previous driver, the Fast 12)
  • 1 degree of of adjustability
  • VST (a slot in the sole), which increases ball speed on mishits and allows for a more optimally placed CG

  • Matte white crown with Black PVD face

“The VST (slot) is not the same depth the whole way through,” Fox said. “It’s deeper in the heel and in the toe, where you need more speed.In the center, it’s not as deep, because the speed is already maxed there.”

  • One 460cc head that offers three different loft combinations
  • High launch with low spin
  • VST
  • “Real deal” Matrix Radix S 60 stock shaft

  1. Have had Adams super s driver for one week, 2 rounds. Gaming a reg flex for my 92-96 ss. Am 64 years old.
    The reg. flex when put on a frequency/flex machine tests out more like a stiff, and so felt a bit boardy, but only at first. The bad: when set for 9.5 degrees the face is 2 degrees open–a slice machine. The good: the slot technology contributes to a very hot face, and the shaft is quite stable.And if I had about a 5 mph faster ss it would probably be a premium quality, perfect shaft. On the course, about a 3rd of my drives 250-265 with roll out, but too many left right, so had to close the face–which raises loft. But a lovely boring trajectory when you get it right. And even on launch monitor inside, better distance with this than anything else I demo-ed. But with raised loft had to hit with a slightly lower sweep; than usual. In fact, had to use a slightly different swing than anything else in my bag–not a good thing. But with practice, draws and fades can be hit. In fact at 10.5 this seems to want to hit a power fade. Draws require more effort than say the two new Taylormade drivers. Jury’s still out. These things have come down in price. By all means give this a try, but it may take a bit more practice to get it right than other clubs out there.

  2. All I have to say is these clubs are smoking hot! Didn’t like white heads at first, but after gaming them, don’t even care how they look! The ball comes off the face like a rocket! Especially the hybrid and 3wood!

  3. I actually like them. It’s personal preference I guess, but I like the slot near the face too. I think there are benefits to be had. It just stands to be seen whether they start treating Adams as a secondary line thus taking away features so they don’t cannibalize the rocketballz sales. I think a big reason they bought them is probably for the slot tech that is also present in the rocketballz fairway and hybrids.

  4. I think they look great and having demo’d one the super s I ordered one on the way. So tired of all these whiney old classic lovers that want a store wall to have nothing but a sea of black heads with no colour no variance in style etc.
    Ps did you complaining fogeys know that steel spikes are no longer in fashion lol

  5. Ha, they shelved the superfast 3.0 for TM and transitioned them over to adams. They are still adams tech but with a TM coat of paint…

  6. Am I wrong or do the specs list all these clubs with wood shafts? .335 will be super soft tips hitting the ball straight up in the air. I hope for Adams sake they didn’t do that. I am thinking it is a typo but club companies have done dumber stuff before.

  7. More ugly white drivers. If they want to increase their sales of these clubs they should include a free can of spray paint with purchase.

  8. So now we have an iron set with 3 degrees gap between clubs for a handicap group where 3 degree gap between clubs will in 90% of the shots mean less than a 7 yards diff between clubs, leaving a 16 degree gap at the bottom end of the club, where it has been proven by all the top teachers in the world, improve the short game, including bunker play will drop your score by 20 to 25 percent, so we keep a 4 degree gap from the PW to end up with a 60 degree lob, that if well practiced is a fantastic club for bunkers around the green, and we add 4 more clubs to the set, a 48, 52, 56 and 60. Or what is the logic?? Do club makers play the game? Why not start to build a set for mid to high handicaps, starting at the scoring end of the set? Taylormade will most likely take my idea and call it Rocket Scores.

  9. Another great club maker who had great products with a unique brand and identity completely F…k up by TM. I am glad I sold my CMB and MB2 irons and went back to Mizuno. I still have A12 hybrid that is great, but now Adams like TM will have no resale value, so we are left with TM, Titleist, Cleveland, Callaway and Mizuno. But I suppose Barney Adams will just start another business and sell out to Taylormade for the 3rd time,

    • Adam’s has never had a good resale value, give your head a shake if that is something that will keep you from purchasing their equipment…
