The story about irons designed with a low center of gravity to launch the ball higher isn't new. Same goes for thin faces.
Adams' latest iron has those concepts covered but takes the conversation about iron technology one step farther. The new XTD ($600, 4-iron through pitching wedge) seeks to create straighter shots by pushing weight farther back from the face.
The design also benefits from a thin Carpenter 455 steel face and a sole slot for increased face flexibility. The set includes the option of adding the new Adams Pro hybrid for an additional $100 a club.
