Adams Speedline 9088 UL
Posted 13 September 2011 - 01:11 PM
I was looking to purchase a new driver, after talking with the salesrep, I narrowed the choices to Cleveland 270, Burner 2.0, and this 9088. Simply, it came down to this ..... what am I hitting straighter, more accurate, and longer -- In that order. Granted the shaft in the Cleveland is unbelievable and the Burner 2.0 is only $200 at Carl's Golfland, but I just could not mishit this Adams Driver. Maybe it is because it has a "swing weight of D0, which is slightly lower than a typical iron (D2-D4) and significantly lighter than other extremely light drivers." Do not know but I do know this, I am out $299 with a driver that gives me an extra 15+ yards down the middle. My swing speed is 106, I was playing the old 8.5 Nike Sumo with a tipped V2 shaft (still my baby), I hit a high ball and can't seem to get out further then 260 yds. Not sure what my swing speed is with UL driver, but I am now 285 yards and straighter. Is it aesthetically pleasing to me .... NO! But it is all about the results. Now I am the proud foster parent of the new Adams Speedline 9088 UL, and ready to unleash this bastxxx child on my local golf course.

Amen to that! I recently picked up the 9088, 5 and 7 woods for stupid cheap. They are all bombers. The driver is sneaky long. A good 10-15 yards longer than my R9. The sound is also something I really like, almost a fairway like *thwack* and off it goes. My first day out with it, I drove 2 greens (296 and 310) and one rolled off the back of a 294 yarder. Dispersion was really good, if it was a bad result it was because of a horrible swing.

The funny thing is, I saw a post or two claiming it was draw biased but I'm finding that I simply don't lose it left, which is my common miss. Come to think of it, I can't really lose it right either. Just baby draws and fades all day. Could be the Prolite HL I suppose, another surprise there; pretty solid shaft for the price.
Agree with others on the sound; a nice 'thwack' that is rather addicting and a relief with every driver out there being loud.
My only complaint would be the light head; 195g, would prefer something a little heavier so it would build to a decent SW at a normal (44.75") length.
