I obviously cannot say for sure it is because of the Velocity Slots, but the face is hot. The sole of the club and the face are black with silver and blue accents, the crown is silver. Again derived from the dimples of a golf ball, Speed Coat is a roughened coating on the exterior of the shaft.

We take a look at one of the hottest fairway woods on the market. The deep face actually made the club plenty easy from tall grass, but the shaft is simply too big and contact was too unpredictable. It plays, if anything, slightly stiffer than I expected it to, but that fits the profile of this club. That changed adwms year.

These both took a bit of time to get used adxms, but they effectively offset each other. But if you need something to hit the ball mammoth distances, a club to replace your driver on a day when your swing is a little wonky, and a club that gets the ball in the air, look no further.

The shaft is very long, and the head is sizable. The head cover is a breeze to take off but the structured upper section makes putting it back on a bit trickier. If you are looking to keep the ball under the wind and bend it like Bubba, again, this might not be the club for you. Nike was the first major company to introduce something like this, when their Compression Channel was introduced a few years back, but Adams was the initial OEM to put this technology on both the sole and the crown of the clubhead.


Design and Technology When Adams introduced the Speedline series of woods a few years ago, they promised increased distance through improved aerodynamics.

Tee it high and let it fly. They have feature after feature designed specifically to give golfers the most distance, not only on-center strikes but on off-center hits as well. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

I can only imagine what it would have been like with a livelier shaft. Performance Like many of the new generation of fairway metals on the market, the Speedline Fast 12 is made for the tee box.

With features such as second-generation Velocity Slot Technology which includes a slot within a slotSpeed Coat design of the shaft, and Speedline aerodynamic design, Adams is not short on innovation. Again derived from the dimples of a golf ball, Speed Coat is a roughened coating on the exterior of the shaft. Adams has built a fairway wood that is very stable through the shot, one that rockets the ball off the face, and one that retails for a very fair price.

I love the jet black, lacquered look of clubs like the Titleist F, but the matte finish makes this look like a boring grey. I was initially worried about reflections off the bright crown, but the matte finish quashes that worry.

It makes the club look like spesdline mid-iron, and for a club with a large head and a long shaft, that inspired a lot of confidence. Conclusion Though golf clubs are usually categorized by the character profile they fit low- mid- or high-handicapperthe Adams Speedline Fast 12 fairway woods do not fit that description. I rarely play a fairway wood from the rough instead opting for my 2-hybridbut for the sake of science I spedline the bullet and tried a few with the Fast It remains to be seen if their sale to TaylorMade-Adidas helps or hurts the company, but in recent years Adams has been putting out some of the best woods in golf, and this year seems to be no different.

The long shaft and large head are perfectly suited to shape the ball all over the place from the tee, but I found it troublesome to work the ball from the fairway, and workability was nonexistent from the rough. Notify me of new posts by email.

The long shaft makes it a bit tougher to hit square, the large face makes off-center hits come off a bit more fast. The ProLaunch Blue is a very stable shaft, just begging for you do go after it. Though the face does indeed have bounce and roll, the black finish makes it look very angular, and you get the allusion of increased loft.
