F11 fairway metals from Adams

Adams claims it has taken innovation to the next level with the introduction of Velocity Slot Technology to its new range of Speedline F11 fairway woods.

The clubs are offered from this month in both stainless steel and titanium models, featuring a deep channel on both the crown and sole to act as a leaf spring to increase deflection and reduce stress on the face. Adams claims this improves performance miss-hits.

Adams says its Speedline F11 fairway wood models are 'dramatically easy-to-hit' with a '21 percent improvement in forgiveness across the entire face, better ball speeds and up to 12 yards of increased distance.'

Ryan Moore and multi-major champion Tom Watson are among those who have immediately put the clubs in their bags. 

“Historically, fairway woods had relatively low COR values due to the fact that their head and face sizes had to remain smaller for playability purposes,” says Scott Burnett, director of advance product development for Adams Golf.  “But by applying VST to our Speedline F11 fairway woods, we’ve been able to expand the forgivenessd without adversely impacting size or durability. This improvement is directly proportional to the impressive driver forgiveness experienced as clubhead sizes increased.”

Adams Speedline F11 fairway metals (Aldila Voodoo VS shaft) are available in 3- and 5-wood versions in right and left-handed models. A women’s Speedline F11 3- and 5-wood (lightweight grafalloy) is available in right-handed only.

Adams clubs sell in the UK through Direct Golf’s 17 retail stores. Online outlets can be found by visiting www.direct-golf.co.uk
