Thought I might share this one here, just bought a set of Adams DHY Proto heads off the bay.

https://www.ebay.ca/...96/162737575424

These were tour only as adams was folded into Taylormade before these hit retail. They are much more traditional looking than the retail DHY, with a straight "iron-like" topline. They also have a filled in slot on the bottom compared to the Pro & XTD models (which you had to clean out every time you hit a shot!!)

Found a single reference on GolfWRX which compares this model to the retail one.

http://www.golfwrx.c...f-two-versions/

At $50 per head It is a song compared to other driving irons on the market, especially with 18* irons being so elusive.Looking forward to shafting these up for some winter tinkering!

I have had the retail pro dhy 18* for a while and only have one complaint. I can't find replacement weights to use with it. It appears to be a different and incompatible weight design than the ones available for other dhy models (triangular wrench tip). Right now I have about 10g of lead tape on the back of it.

The proto heads don't have any adjustable weight. Any idea what the stock head weight is on these? It looks like there might be an access port in the toe for hotmelt.

Also, is this the same item (24* only), fully built for a couple dollars cheaper (assuming the pictures are accurate)?

Looks like it...I've already bought mine so didn't check if they had the other lofts...the 18* is always the hardest to find

Will report back on head weight once I have them in hand!

It is the tour proto head (smaller profile).  I ordered about a month ago and have had it in hand for weeks.  Since I didn't want that shaft, I asked them for head only price figuring that's probably the way they had them, and they sold me a head for $25 (brand new in plastic).

Has anybody hit these? I've had the regular dhy for a while and love it, but have heard very little about these. I feel like I heard they were tough to hit.

I play the tours, and I love them.  I like the regular DHYs too, but these are much more square with reduced offset compared to the more oval shape of the regular DHYs.

These are less forgiving, more along the lines of a 712U.

I ordered an 18 too, lol. I'd rather buy it and decide not keep it than to wait and decide to buy it after they run out.

Mine came in today. Head weight was 234g.
Already have a shaft/grip combo planned for it.

Nice man, my set of 3 should be here monday...bit longer to get to the frozen north. No idea what shaft i'll put in - can't decide if I want to go to a graphite hybrid shaft, or just a lighter steel iron shaft. Good thing it is 28* outside and all the golf courses are closed for the year...

I have a 2 iron length shaft (steel) that matches my iron set, with the same grip as my irons.

80 degrees here today, I played this morning. Mine will probably get some range time tomorrow or Monday.

What I really want to find is a hybrid shaft in a heavier weight. Aldila Tour Blue which I love only seems to come in 85 grams...if they made a 105 like some others I would be all in!

Got about 25 range swings on mine today. It's definitely a great club for an great ball striker. I loved it off the tee. I was 50/50 off the turf. I could hit a nice fade and low stinger, but couldn't get much of a draw off the turf.

Definitely going to give it some more range work and see if I can get the versatility I want from it.
