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.

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.

    • From this, it actually looks like he gets the club back on plane through impact. This is wild.
    • That's an exaggeration. He's obviously shown that he has the potential to compete but he struggles with consistency month to month. I think everyone who watches golf underestimates just how rare it is to have back to back seasons as the likes of Tiger, Jack, or Arnold- especially in a field as talented as it is in 2016. I'm a huge believer that these past few seasons have been some of the best tour golf ever played in the history of the game, especially when it's looked at in terms of depth. Week to week, it's really anyone's tournament to take, and it hasn't always been like that.
    • Trump paying out the $1M to a wealthy individual is a non-story.  The entire story is a non-story, I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the news channels and beyond a cut and paste no one else is covering it.  If this was something the democrats or liberal media really thought could hurt Trump we'd be hearing about it constantly.  No one cares when rich guys get into a dispute, there's no damage control to be done here. The real reason it's even in the news is because Trump's charity (not his golf course) paid out money to Greenberg's charity and it was a potential inappropriate use of the charity funds.  
      I'm guessing those that voted Trump should pay are basing this off their general dislike for Trump or his platform as a POTUS candidate.  Anyone who read the facts and didn't have a bias against Trump would conclude paying off Greenberg was not Trump's responsibility.  
    • Genetics definitely play a role, but not as much as people think. If you have a 6 foot frame to work with from the get-go, you will obviously be able to make a bigger swing with less effort than someone who stands 5 feet tall with shorter arms. A bigger swing path = more time to gain momentum through impact. This is where technique and flexibility come into play, though. Having a large frame/swing only correlates to distance if you can do two things, 1) swing at a high rate of speed through the slot, 2) maintain a square club face on impact. I am not a tall or big person by any means, but I gain a lot of my strokes by being able to hit a wedge or low iron into the majority of holes I play. The biggest adjustment to my game that I made in order to hit the long ball has been working on my shoulder flexibility as well as timing my hip turn. If you are a smaller person and want to improve distance, you should first make sure you are able to hit the ball squarely, but after, elongate the path of your lead arm without compromising your spine alignment and swing plane. It definitely isn't something that happens in one range session as it oftentimes takes multiple seasons in order to find 15-25 yards from the tee. But genetics definitely are not the only thing that factor into hitting big drives, I would say it is much more contingent on technique and timing than anything else.  
    • Actually it is not. It's taking something that people will perceive is bad associated with you, your brands and your business as Trump and making sure it doesn't affect you negatively. People saying it's not his fault and would be bad business are failing to see the big picture. He generates so much money off of his name and reputation and brand that if something is associated with him negatively, wrong or right, it could have already cost him far more than a million dollars of revenue or EBITDA.  And this was another executive  not sure I want the word on street to be that I didn't make good for another CEO. It's the same reason why when Chik Fil A made a statement about gay marriage they also were outside handing out free bottles of water to protesters. And their sales went even higher!  They controlled the message and paid for it and what happened?  They came out winners. There are multiple examples of this in business. That's why I disagree with @iacasand with @newtogolf  And apparently over 70 percent of the voters on this poll agree.  Ultimately we can have our own opinions on it and that's mine.
