Adams Speedline Fast 10 Driver and Fairway Wood

9 posts in this topic

I was curious if anyone had any opinions/reviews on the Adams Speedline Fast 10 line of drivers and fairways woods? I am in the market for a driver and 3 wood and there's a special at a local store where you get the 3 wood free if you buy the driver. I've always played Adams Hybrids and loved em, but have no experience with their drivers or fairway woods. Thanks in advance...

I have one and love it. It has been accurate and long. I have the 10.5 stiff. I haven tracked my distance but I' usually around 260ish total. 250-270 range. Shot dispertion is tight as well. Most of my miss hits are still playable.

I just played my first round with the Speedline Fast 10 3-wood and I have to say, I have a whole new confidence off the tee. I'm long and erratic with a driver, so I got this club to play off the tee when a driver could get me in trouble. I'm surgical now. I can work it left and right, high and low. I didn't hit a poor shot with it all day. Its even easy to play off the deck. Take this for what its worth, as I have no 3-wood experience to speak of. This club replaced an erratic 15 degree hybrid. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Got paired with a guy at my home course this weekend who had this driver. He asked me to hit it on the second Par 5 to see if I liked it. I first teed off with my driver, and was 246 yds down the right side of the fairway. I then teed off with his driver, and was 262 yds down the middle (both distances measured with a SG5 plus cart GPS). The Adams Speedline Fast 10 Driver felt very nice - he said that he just paid something like $329 for it, so I am still happy with my driver for now.

FYI - it was the Aldila Wasabi 60g Stiff Shaft with 10.5 head

Haven't had experience with those particular models, but I use to play an older Adams driver and the TightLies fairway woods and the quality was always good and they felt great. I've heard very good things about the SpeedLine line of clubs.

Awards and Achievements

I just want to say that I LOVE the Adams Speedline Fast 10 # wood!!!!!!!!!!!! I like the setup with the matrix shaft for myself. I have never hit a 3 quite like these. Went to PGA superstore a week ago and hit around 40 or so balls with their demo and avg 264 on the simulator. Its the 3w thats in my bag right now. No spray and felt like I hit it perfect every single time. Not much exp with the drivers. I know they are known to be long.

I just got the Adams Fast 10 Draw 3 wood with the Wasabi shaft. Only hit it at the range but so far. I normally fade/slice my woods, but every swing I put on this thing goes straight. Looking forward to breaking this out on the course.

I have the SuperFast 10 draw driver (9.5, stiff) and love it. Shaft= wasabi. I recently developed more of a hook than a draw and so I pulled my old Ping V2 Rapture(9.5 stiff) back out and hit that straight. The draw driver is effective but can slide you into a hook if you aren't careful. If I steepen my swing plane a little with the draw driver, I can usually fix the hook quickly.

But as far as the sound, feel, distance and overall performance I could not be happier. I have a slow swing speed with the driver (approx100 mph) and can get the occasional 285+ out of it. Usually I hit it 250-265. If you hit it on the screws, you can't even feel the ball come off the face at impact. It is "buttttah".

I have played this driver for 6 months or so every weekend + some. I still love it. I am a new gear junkie and will definitely make a play for the new model coming out in Feb 2011.

I recently got the 9.5 driver with the Matrix shaft stiff flex and the 3 wood with the Wasabi stiff flex shaft. I was curious to try something new and had read many good reviews about them. Due to the snow my review is after hitting them at a heated outside range a couple times.

Driver: I found the length of the club hard to adjust to. Most drivers I have used are either 44.5" or 45" long. The Speedline is over 46" and the stock shaft is a little loose for me. I have a SS of 108-110  and a quick tempo so this might not be a good fit for me out of the box. I will say that it sounds and feels good on contact but my dispersion was greater than usual. Maybe a reshaft is in order because cutting it down will make it too light as others on the net have maintained. I did not see a great increase in distance over my Cobra X Speed Pro (my gamer from last year).

3 wood: Very solid when hit on the screws but the Wasabi was way too whippy for me. Hooking this thing is easy for me to do. My 3 wood which I was not looking to replace is a TM V steel on a UST Proforce V2 stiff flex shaft. That particular shaft works well for me in driver, woods or hybrids.

Not bad but nothing outstanding enough to replace my current setup.

    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      26 and a stroke? Holy smokes. Very sorry to hear that.  I have no idea how to organize a tournament but I have played in my share. The best ones are scrambles where you can organize your own team. The outcome has rarely ever mattered to us as long as we were well fed. Find a local restaurant (usually a bbq place) that wants to help you out and give a discount for advertising and spend your money there. Everyone will love to come for a good meal. Some nice prizes and maybe a raffle with some local companies offering you something if you are able to convince them it is worth it to give something to the cause.  Another thing I have seen work well is a silent auction at the end with donated items. I donated airline miles of which I have tons and 100,000 miles went for $205. Free gift for me and the cause got $205. 
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Haha - I get a couple of reputation points for a post and then go and have a blow up hole. Good drive, left myself 145 in down hill (8i), aimed #deadcenter, pulled 2 shots 25 yards left out of bounds, made 9 (+5) in a 9 hole round of (+11). A better way to avoid blow up holes - play stableford!

      Come on now, that's a bit uncalled for in Bernies case.  His political ideals might be way left, but he is at least honest and virtuous.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'll have to examine your other post closer. That's a good point to consider about the expansion to Continental Europe. Largely explains the poor showing of UK & Ireland in the 60's with many top tier European players not eligible. But considering the 200 million U.S. population base to 63 million in the U.K. & Ireland at the time, the latter did surprisingly well if population base was all that matters. IMO an established competitive golfing culture matters in producing elite players too. Those same European players excluded from Ryder Cup were always eligible for the Majors. The Ryder Cup is also a limited field event. It concentrates the 12 top players of the European Tour. From what I've read, depth of field is still stronger for the 'typical' PGA event, though some non-major Euro events are now stronger than some of the 'minor' PGA events. That is a significant change in Euro competitiveness from the 60's. To some extent that 30% drop sounds like it could be due to simply more international players occupying slots in the fields. If the period you mention covers when majors started to use OWGR for automatic qualification that has some not insignificant inherent issues in terms of strength of field. Having a guaranteed start rather than having to qualify would certainly make for an easier decision to travel to the event. But I'm not arguing against the policy decision facilitating international competition with a little points boost just trying to point out that field strength may not have been as weak in Jack's day as you seem to think. Compared to his peers, which is really the only thing I think you can do without speculative nuance I agree there's no question he's the best golfer. I'm really just arguing that standouts of their caliber (so many more wins so many more majors) than typical players among already elite fields are so rare, that I expect they both represent near the achievable human pinnacle in golf talent, which I don't think really differs within a few generations. The nuances of comparison across eras is interesting to me so I'll debate relative points, but I'm against arguments undervaluing Jack's achievements against 'weak fields'. They both faced very stiff competition.   I'm not dissing Jack. I think his achievements are amazing. I also think the same of Tiger's record. IMO winning percentage per start in the Majors is a very significant stat and Tiger has that in his favor (they are both top 10 and within ~ 2% of each other's number). That number is not the official one for Jack though, I truncated his Major starts to end at age 47, which I think is a reasonable cutoff for competitiveness. If Tiger competes as long as Jack did his major win % (up to age 47) might stay about the same, increase, or decrease (more likely), but he certainly won't match the 18 Majors if he doesn't get like 22+ more major starts between now and age 47.

      Typically more bounce (or a "healthy" amount of bounce) helps in any condition.
