2014 Hotlist Players Irons: ADAMS XTD

ADAMS XTD

STREET PRICE: $1,100 (set of eight, steel)
LOFTS: 6-iron: 30 degrees, pitching wedge: 46 degrees

TECH TALK: A face plate made from thin, high-strength steel is welded to a forged 1025 carbon-steel body. The slot in the sole is designed to let the face flex within an internal cavity. Tungsten toe weights optimize the center of gravity (CG).

PLAYER COMMENTS:
L: "A powerful feel and sound that's consistent iron to iron."
M: "Getting the ball up isn't always easy with players irons, but there's no problem here."

HOT: From multimaterials (five materials in six pieces) to using the DHy driving hybrids for the 3- and 4-irons, some might say this set is ahead of its time. We say it's a potential template for players irons right now.
NOT: Offering conventional 3- and 4-irons for traditionalists would have been a nice option.
