The new Speedline driver from Adams is designed to lessen drag and airflow turbulence, conversely increasing clubhead speed, leading to more distance.
Using data from the Oran W. Nicks low speed wind tunnel at Texas A&M University and in consultation with aero-physicists, Adams has created a patent pending design for the Speedline that includes an aero-shaped crown, heel and toe scoops and improved face-to-body transition.
“We saw an opportunity when the extreme geometry drivers continually tested with higher drag and lower clubhead speed,” said Scott Burnett, director of advanced product development.
“By changing the aerodynamic properties of the face and crown in order to keep the airflow attached, we were able to deliver a significant distance advantage for the average player and tour pro alike.”
The Speedline hybrid-fairway woods are designed to offer the playability of a hybrid and the distance of a fairway wood.
The hyrbird-fairway woods utilize internal heel-toe weighting and advanced Boxer Technology to offer more forgiveness and a moment of inertia that is 12 per cent higher than conventional fairway woods.
A 15 per cent lower centre of gravity is in place to deliver higher launch and better feel compared to standard fairway woods. The increased sole camber from heel to toe is designed to offer ease of use from the fairway and a variety of lies.
“We’ve consistently seen tour pros switching from traditional fairway woods to our hybrid-fairway woods because of the dependable performance and playability similar to their hybrids. If a player likes hybrids
then they will love these fairway wood replacement clubs,” said Tim Reed, vice president of research and development.
Speedline is available in standard or draw models and feature Graffalloy ProLaunch Axis shafts with SmartPly technology.
