Go Lower’ish with 2014 Adams Golf Idea Tech Hybrid Iron set

2014 adams golf idea tech hybrid iron set

Golfers with slower swing speeds often struggle to get the most out of high-performance clubs that perform better when swung faster – especially long irons.

The Idea Tech Hybrid Iron set from Adams Golf, however, is designed specifically for golfers with slower swing speeds (85 mph and lower) who want to launch the ball high and achieve greater distance than they can manage with traditional irons.

There are different sets:
–Men’s: 3-5 Hybrid, 6-7 Driving Hybrid and 8-pitching wedge Hybrid Irons
–Senior: 4-6 Hybrids, 7-8 Driving Hybrids and 9-gap wedge Hybrid Irons
–Women’s: 4-6 Hybrids, 7-8 Driving Hybrids and and 9-sand wedge Hybrid Irons
“From the highest lofted iron to the lowest lofted hybrid, each club in the new Idea Tech hybrid iron set is intended to enhance the golfer’s enjoyment of the game,” said Michael Fox, director of product category management at Adams Golf. “This set was specifically made for the golfer who doesn’t generate a lot of speed, but wants to experience the thrill of hitting high and straight launching golf shots.”
By adding an external 24-gram weight to the back of the 3-5 hybrids, engineers could position the center of gravity lower and further back in the head than in any previous Adams hybrid. This low-and-back design gives slower swing-speed players higher launch and increased spin, helping them keep the ball airborne longer.

As in the previous generation, the Hybrid Irons (6-pitching wedge) feature an enhanced wrap-around slot that stretches from the toe across the sole and into the crown. This expands the sweet spot across the entire face, delivering better performance on off-center strikes.In addition, a refined barbell-shaped slot on the crown reduces stress on the face while improving ball speed.

This, Adams says, results in the fastest and longest Idea hybrid and iron combination in the company’s history.The set also features a new progressive shaft design in which the shaft tip diameters get thinner towards the lower end of the set. This makes it easier to generate speed and launch on the downswing, making it ideal for slow swing speed players.
