Adams XTD irons introduced for 2014

Adams Golf has introduced a new range of Adams XTD irons, which feature the brand’s patented Cut-Thru velocity slots and the golf industry’s first-ever cross-cavity design.

The Adams XTD irons sport the brand’s thinnest cast-iron face to date, which promotes maximum deflection and ball speed.

Instead of strengthening loft, Adams has used technological advances to produce ideal launch angles, height off the face, a penetrating ball flight and a steeper angle of descent.

“As opposed to the standard practice of strengthening iron lofts, we’re providing distance while retaining optimal ball flight,” said Justin Honea, Adams Golf’s Senior Director of Research and Development.

“By integrating thinner faces and Cut-Thru Slot technology, we’re making it much easier for players to produce higher, longer, straighter and more consistent shots.”

Cross-cavity technology is designed to keep errant and off-centre shots on their proper path.

The Adams XTD irons‘ centres of gravity have been moved of the face to promote an effect similar to a hybrid, resulting in corrective spin to to straighten off-centre hits.

The weight distribution from face to head also helps to get the ball in the air faster and stabilise the club at impact.

Framed scorelines on the Adams XTD irons help with alignment and a pressure piston dramatically decreases vibration after impact.

Adams XTD irons will be available in pro shops and at speciality golf retailers from April 2014.

The seven-club set (4-pw) is available with KBS Tour 90 shafts (£499.99) and Matrix Program Q series graphite shafts (£599).
