Adams Golf Speedline 4G Ultralite Driver
Tour players around the world are familiar with Adams Golf and its reputation over the last nearly 30 years. The company’s Tight Lies Series of clubs first earned it a worldwide reputation for quality, technologically innovative clubs. In the past decade, the company has led the industry in hybrid club technology. Adams Golf’s Speedline series features an aerodynamic design and other features with the sole purpose of increasing speed.
A latest in the Speedline series, the Adams Golf Speedline 4G Ultralite Driver is designed for players who benefit from a lighter weight club. The Speedline 4G is made of ultra-light materials and weighs only 282 grams total. The club’s Mitsubishi Bassara shaft is made with graphite material that is lightweight at 44 grams and a Winn Ultra Lite Grip.
Its lightweight design is combined with its aerodynamic design. Its club head is sculpted and shaped to provide maximum swing sweep with reduced drag. Together, the light weight and aerodynamics are designed to give players 10 to 12 more yards in each drive. Plus, while the driver is designed for both men and women golfers, its light weight and graphite shaft made it a smart choice for lady golfers. It’s nearly all-black color is striking on the golf course and inspires confidence in players.
Golf Magazine tested and reviewed the Adams Golf Speedline 4G Ultralite Driver in its “Max Game-Improvement Drivers” categories for its March 2011 magazine. Testers picked up as much as 10 additional yards and appreciated the driver’s spin control for greater forgiveness on mis-hits. Despite its light weight, the club has a solid and stable feeling. While its lightweight is not for everyone, testers overall rated the club as “A solid, dependable performer. It’s a favorite for appearance, due to the sleek black head and clubface.”
Adams Lady Speedline F11 Draw Driver 460cc
Started in 1988 as a company that designed custom fitted golf clubs, Adams Golf has successfully moved into the consumer golf market. With product offerings for both men and women, Adams Golf has a full range of clubs for the golf course and driving range. LPGA players Brittany Lincicome and Yani Tseng have endorsed Adams Golf’s line of clubs for women.
One of the most popular lines of golf clubs by Adams Golf has been their Speedline set of drivers. With the release of the Speedline, Adams revolutionized aerodynamic design. Speedline aerodynamics reduced drag by 35 percent over previous drivers on the market, giving golfers an advantage of greater speed and more distance. The latest update to the Speedline drivers has debuted in the Adams Lady Speedline F11 Draw Driver.
The Adams Lady Speedline F11 Draw Driver builds on the company’s already successful women’s version of the Speedline driver. The F11 has an even more precisely shaped clubhead for greater aerodynamic advantage. In addition, the Lady Speedline F11 introduces the company’s patent-pending Velocity Slot Technology. Velocity Slot Technology is a set of small slots on the crown and sole of the clubhead that are visible to the eye. With these slots, the clubhead better directs airflow during the swing, so that the golfer gets an even smoother, faster swing.
Another new feature of the F11 is its larger footprint; it comes with a 460cc head, the largest allowable. Its larger head promises greater forgiveness for players without sacrificing a faster swing. As the company puts it, this club is where “the distance of aerodynamics meets easy-to-hit. It truly is the best of both worlds.” The Lady Speedline F11 comes in a striking teal color with a strong, yet flexible, Grafalloy Ladies Graphite shaft.
The Speedline F11 drivers have been tested and reviewed by Golf Magazine. Testers rated the driver strong for its increased in distance, comfortable feel during play and better forgiveness than other models, while some found the look of the Velocity Slot Technology a bit odd. But, for women who believe that performance is what matters, the Adams Lady Speedline F11 Draw Driver 460cc is an excellent all-around driver.
