When Adams first introduced their Redline Series of Irons critics found them to be a bit gimmicky looking. But there are critics for everything and these were probably the people who hadn’t tested the irons out yet. A few notes first about the Redline Irons Set is it’s a combo set of long hitting irons and hybrids. Designed with distance as the primary goal, golfers can design the set to suit their skills choosing from various hybrids and irons. Definitely a game improving set made with the intention to hit the ball longer. This 8 club set comes with Adams winning hybrids added for no extra charge.
In testing they hit great and definitely have the ability to be bit long if you hit them well. Forgiveness was definitely a big factor with these clubs. You get great results if you hit them in the center of even those off-center hits still go straight. Not too far off center but enough to call them a forgiving iron. The distance is still there though which I found to be extremely impressive. Overall good distance gains and a great set of clubs if you want the ability to customize your order with irons and hybrids for an extremely reasonable price.
Adams Golf is already world renowned for their hybrids but they just got even better with the roll out of their Idea Pro a12 hybrids and forged iron sets. Designed specifically for the skilled player looking for Tour performance golf clubs. Creating them to be up to par with Tour standards meant creating better launch conditions, enhanced playability and they topped that off in a stealth black finish to reduce glare.
The pro a12 hybrids were designed with a more compact clubhead to help for better shot making. A thin steel face allows for better ball speeds and height. Weight has been placed in the sole to help reduce turf interaction. With your choice of 5 different lofts you can easily integrate the hybrids into your bag wherever you need them.
How did all these new design elements help with the overall performance? We enjoyed the touch of a black finish to help with glaring effects of the clubhead. The overall playability of the club was definitely up to par with the Adams name. Great for distance gains and had incredible accuracy from what we found. Starting at $199.99 an extremely reasonable price for Adams Hyrbids you can buy yours at GolfClubs.com today.
Cleveland’s Mashie Hybrid is one blast from the past, think of these days these were still called utility clubs. Let’s start off with it’s looks, this retro cool club is as versatile as it’s shape looks. Not your typical hybrid looking club complete with Cleveland’s “Retro-Raw” finish which gives it that greyish look. The two rails on the side make it really stand out as far as first looks go.
Down to it’s workability. The Mashie is a joy to swing, lightweight and makes great contact. The versatility on this club was something we were hoping for but not expecting how great it was. Easy to hit from the fairway or medium rough it was able to get the ball out and fast. Finished off with a stock Miyazaki C. Kua 59 gram shaft, delivers that lightweight feeling you certainly aren’t going to find in other hybrids.
Definitely a contender to be the #1 hybrid on the market. Love or hate the headcover it’s definitely a head turner in the bag. You can find this golf clubs for around $150 at online stores.
