Adams Golf has introduced the XTD family of clubs with technologies to enhance forgiveness and ball speed generation.
“Quite frankly, these XTD products are the best we make, thanks to a spare-no-expense mindset to create game-changing technology,” said Justin Honea, senior director of research and development.
“We ignored convention, built with premium materials and pushed the limits to deliver jaw-dropping ball speed increases off the face for every club in the bag,” he added.
Adams tested each head four times to ensure the hottest permissible face within USGA rules and the tightest tolerance in golf.
In addition, XTD is the only driver to feature Cut-Thru Slot technology. These provide face flexion and expand the sweet spot to promote greater ball speed on both off-centre and on-centre shots. True to Adams’ aerodynamic shaping, there are neither engravings, nor sharp edges to slow the club during its swing.
“We’re touting that it’s the hottest face in golf by using the strictest manufacturing tolerances,” said Honea. “Every feature we’ve built into the XTD family is distinctive and we’ve merged them all together into the ultimate driver.”
Titanium Fairway Woods/Hybrids
Going against convention, engineers combined titanium brazing with Adams’ Cut-Thru Slot technology and developed progressive face thickness to re-distribute mass with the objective of providing 29 per cent more face speed on off-center hits.
XTD has a low centre of gravity for ease in getting the ball airborne for more consistent and controllable performance.
“We’ve consistently led the way in hybrid innovation and these have taken it to an entirely new level,” added Honea. “We made sure XTD included every element to give golfers all they need when facing a long approach or looking to advance the ball toward the hole.”
Forged Irons with slots
Unlike traditional forged irons, XTD is a multi-piece forging that boasts the category’s first-ever Cut-Thru Slot technology. A floating face and hollow design are features to deliver a consistently faster face, adding forgiveness throughout. Tungsten sole weights are in place to optimize centre of gravity location.
“We created a forged iron that’s caught up to our legendary hybrid technology, breaking the mold of what’s been around for 80 years,” said Honea. “Most blades sacrifice distance for workability, but we’re giving extra yards and improvement on off-centre shots.”
The full eight-piece set includes a three and four DHy. A unique bulge-and-roll face technology is designed to improve shot dispersion.
