Adams has been the number one provider of hybrids on the PGA Tour since 2008, cementing its reputation as the go-to brand for the pros in regards to rescue clubs.

But most of us are not pros, and we shouldn’t be using the same kit as they do. So can Adams produce a hybrid for the masses? That’s what the Blue set out to do.

The brand’s loyal supporters will be familiar with the square, almost boxy-looking profile when looking down at an Adams hybrid, and the blue continues this tradition, but with a more plump, tearshaped design.This will appeal to the higher handicappers, as straight away you feel there will be more help on off-centre hits.

The blue crown contrasts beautifully with the silver face, and the design on the bottom is classy – a word which aptly describes the overall appearance.

In the forgiveness stakes, the Adams Blue excels. Whether you strike it on the toe, heel, high or low on the face, you’ll be impressed by the amount of help on offer. It’s one of the most forgiving rescue clubs on the market.

Off the face it has a lively, soft feel. Distance-wise it’s around middle of the pack.The Velocity Slot Technology in the sole of the club allows the face to flex at impact for increased ball speeds.

Adams utilises the Easy Launch System in all of its products and this combines with a low/back centre of gravity and Slim Tech Shaft for a high launching ball. For attacking greens, this is a superb club as players can hoist it up there, and it will come down soft.

One issue we had with the club is that it makes a tinny sound at impact which may deter some players.

Verdict

A superb hybrid for mid to high handicappers, proving Adams can produce rescue clubs for the pros and the everyday golfer.

There’s heaps of forgiveness on offer, it looks great, and it provides decent distance. The Blue hyrbid is naturally high launching, and offers an appealing feel. The only con is the tinny sound at impact.
