Adams Idea Black Super Hybrid
Posted 28 March 2011 - 11:09 PM
This is the 5 wood for the new generation. I was putting this out there around 235 landing it reallllllly soft with a nice ball flight that reminded me more of a 6 iron's than a 19* hybrid's. The stock shaft is the Aldila SNV8 which is a perfect match, at a 115 driver ss it had no issue keeping up with my swing. The club has some offset which is hardly noticable and doesn't look as hooky as some of the more GI hybrids that Adams produces.
Overall 9/10 as a 5 wood/long hybrid combo which I think is what Adams meant when they named this thing a Super Hybrid. Now time to find a 21* hybrid!

I am going pull my 19* SH and 23* A7 both with Altus stiff for a 20* A12 w/ RIP'ed stiff
Anyone know if you can have these bent .5-1* flat?.... All Adams hybrids seem so upright to me...

It goes left, there is no getting around it. When you want to hit it with a fade, it goes left, when you want to hit it straight it goes more left and when you want to hit it left, tell the guys on the next fairway to watch out!
Make a couple of small adjustments. Don't change your grip, you will screw yourself up. Play the ball more towards the middle of your stance and point the toe a little towards One o'clock. That seemed to straighten it out a little. Ball flight was with a hook start, straighten out and a little fade finish. But trust it completely, certainly not! Since my natural shot is a fade, I use it when I want to hit a hard boring draw. I don't have to think about it. That's what it does!
It does put some spank on the ball and it is easy to hit--Left!

Experimenting with replacing it with a 17* SH. The newer version with the velocity slot. So far not liking it at all. Ball flight went from nice draw to high push fade.
Will try it again at range this weekend and if not better the 17* is going up for sale.
