Adams XTD Irons 4-pw Steel Shaft R
February 3, 2015
Always fast delivery from Rock Bottom. They're not the prettiest club on the market I must admit. They have replaced my Adams A4R irons that have served me well for the last 2+ years. The lofts are stronger by 1degree over that set. So I am getting greater distance from these clubs. My old 8 iron would be my 148yd club. With the XTD's I'm hitting my 9 iron 147. My PW 125yds is now 137. It's when you get into 4/5/6 irons that things get crazy in a good way. This is where the slots kick it up two notches. Distance is nice, but forgives is what I need. This set has that big time. For feel players, there is none. Every shot feels like you hit it in the center of the club face. Even fat shots that you say oh boy I missed that one, come off pretty darn good.
Pros:It's not just the jacked lofts. These clubs with this shaft will give you greater distance and be more forgiving. About lofts, the A4R 4 hybrid is 22degrees on my old set. The XTD 4 iron is 22 degrees also. Hybrid 195yds for me, 4 iron XTD 209. Do I believe in the slots....ummm yes! Rock Bottom always has the best prices, everyone else was selling these for a much higher price.
Cons:Not the prettiest club on the market. Not many reviews on these clubs on the internet, but what you do find they're surprised by them.
