Adams XTD Irons Review
Xtra Distance, Xtra Forgiving & Xtra Easy
I’ve been using the full set of Adams XTD Irons for a while now.
I have over 10 years of experience in reviewing different types of golf clubs.
These are my thoughts on these irons and how they performed for m!
How did Adams add 20 yards to every club? Slot technology and the XTD piston paired with the super thin face seem to get the job done. Center of the face hits just launch up into the sky and go forever. I appreciated that it was a consistent 2 clubs longer across the board. I was hitting my 4-iron almost as long as my hybrid. I felt really strong hitting a 9-iron 160 yards. It feels good and gives your ego a boost. The downside is my set only went to a pitching wedge which means I ran out of yardage at 140 yards. I didn’t have a 120 yard club anymore. My wedges don’t hit that far. I believe getting the GW and even the SW might be required to keep this set playable in those shorter distances to make sure all the yardage gaps are filled.What about off center hits? Well first off they don’t feel the best. Most clubs don’t but these have a harsh hollow feel to them. The flip side is that you don’t lose much distance, nor accuracy. Thin shots just hop because of the slot technology and shots outside of the sweet spot are corrected by the X frame technology. If you don’t have a solid iron game, these could really save your scores.
What is the bottom line on the Adams XTD irons? They are long, accurate and easy. While some feel they aren’t the best looking irons, these irons will make you feel really good about your game. Everyone likes to hit it longer, more accurately and do it with ease. If you want to own the second shot in your game, the XTD irons are impressive. They are simply xtra long, xtra forgiving and xtra easy.
