Pros: Straight, hybrid-life feel

Cons: Lower ball flight off the deck

This wood is labeled a "Hybrid-FW" and it certainly feels like it. This fairway wood is similar to it's sister clubs the popular a4 Boxer series of hybrids. It has a box shaped head and feels like it has a slightly heavier head weight. I got the 3-wood with 15* of loft.

Overall, I found it pretty easy to hit. Almost every half-decent swing produced a straight shot. It's reasonably, but not incredibly, forgiving distance-wise on mis-hits. Far toe shots lost a lot of distance, but anything near the center of the face got reasonable distance. On clean hits I hit it about 20 farther than my 19* a4 Boxer 3-hybrid.

The launch angle is listed on the Adams website as "mid-high", and that seems appropriate. I struggled to get much height with it hitting off the deck, but if I teed the ball up about 1/4 inch I could definitely get height from it. Typical trajectory was not very high, but high enough.

Hitting it off the deck was easier than I expected. It has a slightly deeper clubface, but contact wasn't hard to make on a tight lie. As noted above, it was hard to get much height off the deck, but I'm not the best of ball strikers so I'm sure a better player could get a better trajectory than I. Nonetheless, I did have a few good successes off the deck with it. There's a par-5 at my local course that usually plays into the wind and so I like to use this club to keep the ball lower. I've had a few successful 220+ yard hits into a moderate wind off the deck.

Overall, it's a 3-wood that I trust and it serves as a good safety club when I want to avoid the driver. It's easy to hit (especially off a tee) and easy to keep safe.
