@Phil McGleno Full disclosure: I actually helped design and test the GX-7 W/Jeff Halstead a former Engineer at Adams that works w/us ( he's designed clubs that have made the Golf Digest hot list).
It's a 14 degree- 43' driver w/a slighter smaller head and its built to find a lot more fairways (eliminate the big misses) w/very solid driver distance off the tee, Its designed for the amateur golfer, not a pro and its not for everyone- its for golfers that struggle off the tee-- The golfers we tested, hit it right out there with and sometimes past, their traditional big-headed lower lofted drivers, esp when you average/include their big misses---Don't compare your best drive vs best drive, as this is not a long drive contest, the key its the average of all drives (your going to get a lot more roll in the fairway compared to rough/trees) Trackman results ( w/test golfers) showed the GX-7 had a much smaller dispersion pattern when compared to their traditional drivers. A 45 inch- 10 degree driver will have much larger dispersion patterns, esp in the misses and we proved this out w/trackman. We did extensive testing w/ Rob Rashell at TPC Scottsdale. Most of the golfers ( not everyone) tested hit it very very straight and long w/great results overall. Several golfers commented on how the slightly shorter driver felt more natural to them and easier to control.
I recently joined the forum to answer questions on the club- I love the game as much as anyone and its fun to be apart of this forum. I would encourage anyone to give it a test drive and it you are having issues hitting it, reach out, because theres a good chance the shaft is not fitting you properly, but the overall amateur-friendly design is something we are really excited about it.
