New Adams releases for 2013...First Look: LS and S Drivers, Woods and Hybrids

4 posts in this topic

I literally went to Golf Galaxy yesterday to pick up a 17˚ super hybrid... Now it seems they're releasing an entire new line. Bought a Mizzy 650 13.5˚ fairway as well, though I'm not unhappy with that decision at 150$.

I think it's pretty decent looking, but entirely too Taylormade-like for my tastes with the crown graphics. I might have to get their new player's driver though, since it's a laundry list of what I want in a driver; 8.5˚ head with +/- 1˚ of loft, velocity slot for thin shots, and deep face. Nice of them to keep it 45" too. I was thinking about a 9064LS to be honest, but this piqued my interest.

Anyone know of their custom shaft options?

I'm really getting pissed about every company's shaft options. 3/4 of them don't make anything even close to my preferences at any cost. The stock shafts all suck for the most part, and even in custom I can seldom find what I want. Enough of the ladies shafts with the S on them... TM and Nike are especially thin on their offerings, Titleist overcharge like crazy and still only offer about 2 shafts I'd like, and Adams doesn't show their shaft options, let alone the cost. I would buy an i20 in a second, but once again they have to offer really light shafts. Their custom options are great, except they have nothing suitable at 80 or so grams. I would spend as much on a head alone as I would for a whole driver, and I would rather not waste money.

Adams has offered some decent, real deal shafts in some of their stuff like the Fubuki in their fairways, but they still go too light for me. It's looking like finding a 75+g shaft is nearly impossible in a driver, unless I feel like paying 375$ extra for an Ahina or something. At least I can get a hosel sleeve and install a new shaft that way on the adjustable ones instead of pulling them. My shaft has to be an X flex and a stable one at that, play at 44" with 80ish grams, and not cost a ridiculous amount. Slim pickings among the OEMs, and the head has to be low lofted and heavy, low spinning with a deep face, and I really like the velocity slot. If they offer the Adams with the kuro kage in X but at a higher weight without an upcharge, I'd be thrilled. Of course I could get in touch with a really good clubmaker and special order a hot melted, tour issue head with a prototype shaft, with the spine aligned with the magnetic fields of the Earth, sprinkled with unicorn tears, and 7 3/11 wraps of tape under the left ring finger, but I can't afford to spend 800$. At least the Adams looks to be a really solid head with almost all of my needs.

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
