Adams XTD 13 deg Fairway
September 9, 2012
laser-like trajectory! i bought the 13 deg wood with stiff shaft. it has a stock fubuki shaft that is amazing. head design and feel is glorious on perfect strikes. perfect for off the fairway or on a tee. even feel confident hitting these in the rough when missing the fairways on long par 5s; seems to interact with turf well much like the hybrid xtd models. this is a no-brainer buy and worth every penny. adams has a very strong reputation with hybrids that translate well into the fairway wood category.
Pros:head design not overly large like many of today's wood designs
driver alternative, especially in wind
design and cosmetics very appealing to eye
real fubuki shaft
feeling of disgust of play partners when comparing result of my adams wood vs their rbz, titleist 910, and r11s
Cons:as with many of the adams models adapting the black colors on club, the paint tends to wear quickly. these do not affect performance at all though. be warned that after one season of at least biweekly play, alot of black paint will be gone.
