A new series of drivers have been introduced by Adams Golf, featuring what it claims is breakthrough 'velocity Slot technology' (VST) on the crown and sole for increased distance and forgiveness.
Adams Speedline F11 drivers, available shortly, are reputed to be larger, easy-to-hit, fifth generation versions of earlier Speedline models with three visible VST channels located on the sole and crown to keep the airflow attached to the clubhead creating 35 percent less drag, increasing clubhead speed at impact.
The result, say the makers, is more confidence at address in the hands of the golfer, upto six yards more carry and a higher moment of inertia (MOI) from off-centre hits. Other design improvements include a lower and deeper centre of gravity producing a higher launch angle with a lower spin rate.
Says Chip Brewer, president of Adams Golf: “We are leaders in aerodynamic technology in driver design, so we are pleased to offer golfers of all abilities a club that delivers more distance yet remains extremely easy-to-hit."
The Speedline F11 driver (priced at £299) is available in 9.5-, 10.5- and 12.5- degree, right-handed versions for men and 9.5- and 10-5- models for left-handers. There's also a right-handed only men's draw version (10.5) and women's 12.5-degree model.
The men’s versions of the driver has a high-launch Aldila Voodoo VS shaft, the women’s version a lightweight Grafalloy shaft.
