Home Adams has a new family!

Adams Golf has introduced the XTD family of clubs. The XTD fairway woods and hybrids include a combination of technologies never seen before, according to the company, and Adams believes it has created the most advanced forged irons ever, featuring a hollow design and the category's only Cut-Thru slot. "Quite frankly, these XTD products are the best we make thanks to a spare-no-expense mindset to create game-changing technology," said Justin Honea, Senior Director of Research and Development. "We ignored convention, built with premium materials and pushed the limits to deliver jaw-dropping ball speed increases off the face for every club in the bag."

The XTD Driver is made like no other. Adams said it redefined the driver manufacturing process by testing each head four times to ensure the hottest permissible face within USGA rules and the tightest tolerance in golf. Today's current competitive standard is measuring only a small percentage of the total production, Adams said. In addition, XTD is the only driver to feature Cut-Thru Slot technology, which the company has been touting in previous products such as hybrids and fairway woods. This provides face flexion and expands the sweet spot to promote maximum ball speed on off-center and on-center shots, according to the company. "We're touting that it's the hottest face in golf by using the strictest manufacturing tolerances," said Honea. "Every feature we've built into the XTD family is distinctive, and we've adamsforgedmerged them all together into the ultimate driver."

Adams' engineers combined titanium brazing with its patented Cut-Thru Slot technology, and developed progressive face thickness to re-distribute mass and provide 29 percent more face speed on off-center hits compared to Adams SUPER LS fairway wood, which was debuted back in January. "We've consistently led the way in hybrid innovation and these have taken it to an entirely new level," added Honea. "We made sure XTD included every element to give golfers all they need when facing a long approach or looking to advance the ball toward the hole."

The XTD line extends to a multi-piece iron forging that features the category's first-ever Cut-Thru Slot technology. A floating face and hollow design delivers a consistently faster face, according to Adams. Tungsten weights are found in the sole to optimize the CG location. "We created a forged iron that's caught up to our legendary hybrid technology, breaking the mold of what's been around for 80 years," said Honea. "Most blades sacrifice distance for workability but we're giving extra yards and improvement on off-center shots!" The full eight-piece set includes a 3- and 4- DHy, currently the top hybrid model on the PGA Tour, according to the company.

XTD drivers ship to pro shops and specialty golf retailers on December 15, 2013 with an MSRP of $399.99. The Ti fairway woods and hybrids will be available for purchase on November 15, each with an MSRP of $299.99 per club. All include a Matrix Red Tie shaft and Iomic Black Armor Sticky Evolution grip.
