I'd like your thoughts, just grabbed one off the bay at $46 bucks...I feel like it was an absolute steal! It has the Matrix OZIK Altus shaft (Stiff)...

I practically stole one of those early this year in my local Golf Galaxy for $32. I couldn't believe how cheap they had it marked. I have never had a whole lot of luck with hybrids but this club is the t****.

I have 2 - a 19* and 24* w/ Mamiya UST VTS stiff.  Got 's about 2 months ago.

I love 'em.  Will never buy another company's hybrid. My only regret is that I didn't discover Adams hybrids sooner.

I just picked one up off of the bay too for $65 shipped.  I bought the 18* with the Matrix shaft but it is an S flex.  I also picked up a Graphite Design YS+ 85 X flex for $22 shipped to throw in it.  The club should be here Monday so I will reshaft it then and hit it Tuesday.  Can't wait.  Should be a good club I am hoping.

I always have liked GDI shafts in my fairway woods.  I bought the 85 X Flex which I believe is 87 grams, instead of the 105.  Normally I play the 105g shafts in my hybird but I thought I would go lighter just for experiment purposes.  I may wind u p with the 105 eventually.  

I used to like the Purple Ice quite a bit and back in the day I liked the YS+7 series in my drivers.  I have always found them to be smooth performers.  Normally higher launching but mid low spin.

Well I got it today about 30 mins ago.  Tore open the package, so excited to hit this thing.  I went out to my backyard and ripped a few off into the field next door.  I hit the first one FLUSH, I was so surprised how solid the whole package was.  I am definitely not going to nut it all the time, but when you do...you know. Loved the feel of, for now my 910h is out of the bag.

yup, you got a great deal.  I love my A12pros.  Super solid feeling.  I may start looking for some to kick my XTDs out of the bag.  I just hit them so much better than the XTDs!

I hit mine for the first time today.  I threw the GDI YS+ 85 X in it.  I only hit it three times on the range, fly a tad higher than I expected and felt good.  The shaft is looser than the PX HB6 I had in my Nickent.  The one I hit on the course flew farther than I thought, but I did lose it right which rarely happens with the HB6.  I think I have to get used to the lighter shaft a little.  It is going to be soild though I can tall for sure.  I love the looks.

Best hybrid I've ever hit. I have the 20/23 with white matrix shaft - love them - took me years to find the right hybrid - these are just solid and do not feel like a small fairway wood.

Great deal. I have 2 of them (16* and 20* I beleive, maybe 18 and 22. Haven't played in a while). Anyhow, they're both shafted with the Aldila RIPd NV and they've been my favorite hybrids I've owned.

I think I paid around $65 a piece, so for $46, that's a great deal.
