2014 Hotlist Super Game-Improvement Irons: ADAMS IDEA


STREET PRICE: $800 (set of eight, graphite)
LOFTS: 6-iron: 28 degrees, PW: 44 degrees

TECH TALK: Three hybrids replace traditional long irons and have crown and sole slots with cut-through openings to enhance ball speed and launch angle. The hollow middle irons have a sole slot that wraps around the toe for more ball speed.

M: "The hybrid irons gave me the feeling they would bail me out on a lot of shots."
H: "Impact feels substantial. There's no vibration on off-center hits."

HOT: Borrowing slot technology from woods and using it in irons is a natural progression in this type of club. Adams has been making sets with three types of irons since 2008. The execution of this line is its best yet.
NOT: Forgiveness is important in this category, but the size of the 6- and 7-irons is startling.
