4 out of 5 rating - foregiving yes, but hybrids arent
19 July 2010
Summary: I've owned these clubs for almost 2 years now. When I bought them new i was told they are the most forgiving clubs on tour and great for beginner golfers.
After almost 2 years, I have to say i agree somewhat with this. If i strike the ball good, these clubs are excellent and i sometimes even get spin on my shots without trying. Where i disagree is with the 3, 4, and 5 irons. I can't, for the life of me, hit these clubs off the fairway.
Summary: These irons do exactly what I want them to do, shoot lower scores, hit it straight, repeatable predictable trajectory. Got em for a good price too, I recommend to everyone. 3H goes 225 everytime, PW goes 130, 6iron 165..
Summary: I had a very difficult time keeping the ball out of the right rough. After getting these clubs, I found I hit the irons straight where I would aim. I did notice a slight distance decrease, however it was worth the straightness. I had a difficult time getting used to the hybrid irons until I realized they were irons in a different shape. Hitting them like a 3 iron cured my difficulty. I am quite excited about the os-3 clubs. I play at a 14 handicap , 62 yrs old.
Adams Golf Expands IDEA Lineup With Easy-To-Hit IDEA A3OS Hybrid Irons
23 April 2009
Excerpt: With the goal of creating the easiest-to-hit set of irons in golf, Adams Golf engineers integrated six hybrids with two cavity-back short irons to achieve results that the maximum-game improvement category has never seen. Built with Boxer Technology, the latest breakthrough in hybrid shaping and performance, the Idea a3OS set delivers a category-leading MOI that translates into extreme forgiveness, increased ball speed for greater distance, and more spin resulting in a...
Conclusion: IDEA a3 Boxer Adams Hybrids sind die Nr.1 auf der US PGA, LPGA, Champions und Nationwide Tour. Die IDEA a3 Boxer Hybrids haben eine längliche Schlagfläche und eine relativ kästchenartige Form, was den Verdrehungswiderstand bei schlecht getroffenen Schlägen deutlich erhöht. Sie besitzen einen um 30 – 70% höheren MOI, als andere Hybrids. Mit diesem hohen MOI von 3350 lassen sich die Hybrids vor allem leichter treffen und mit weniger Aufwand spielen.
