From the category leader in hybrid iron sets, Adams Golf introduces the best performing, easiest to hit hybrid iron set ever. The Idea a12 OS hybrid irons are built with ultra-thin faces for a hotter ball flight, perimeter weighting for more forgiveness, and CG's for higher launch throughout the set. This set of game improvement irons features improved transitional hybrids (patented) as well as hybrids that feature Velocity Slot Technology. Velocity Slot Technology provides substantially more forgiveness and more distance.

Game improvement clubs are never going to set the world alight in terms of appearance but the Adams Idea a12 OS are attractive for their category.

As expected, the clubs are chunky and incorporate a big cavity. However, I’m a fan of the graphics on the back of the club and the Adams stamp on the sole also tickled my fancy. It also sits nicely behind the ball which is always important for me.

These irons are accurate and extremely forgiving to the point where I found it hard to miss a shot. In the hands of a high handicapper I think they could easily take a couple of shots off their round straight away purely through forgiveness.

While they offer minimal feel and workability, the distance on offer is fantastic for a game improvement iron. I was regularly hitting what I would expect to hit with my own player irons which impressed me.
