Summary: I recently broke my Cleveland hi-bore driver, a friend loaned me the adams insight xtd, aldila stiff, 55gram shaft. I am a 10 hadicapp, hit the driver about the same distance as I did the Cleveland 230 or so. my age is 73, so don't depend on longer drives, but I chip and putt with the big boys !
Summary: i bought a new driver first drive and the head fell off took it back the shop they lent me a demo while they ordered me a new 1 and on the 10th hole the head come off that one in exactly the same place so there must be a design fault.
Summary: mine broke TWICE ended up having an extention put on grip . Stiffer at head now. I think we should all demand a recall Adams should do something about this. If they care about their customers.I have an Adams bag and set of Tight lies clubs .
Summary: I have read all the posts...I have a sad tale as well. I bought the first Adams a3 (9.5) about 7-8 months ago. It was the bomb! Very forgiving, very accurate, and very far...for the first half hour at the range. Then the head snapped at the hozel. I was stationed in Boston, MA, and it was cold.
Summary: Even with all the new equipment out there I have been losing distance. Having just turned 58 I find it hard to play from the back tees with young guys and even though I chip and put better than in my youth I rather hit an I iron into a green than hybrid or 5 wood.
Summary: My first XTD broke during a round only after hitting about 40-50+ balls down in the hozel. The second almost broke in the same place. I think it is the last batch of the model and Adams is throwing them together just to get rid of them.
Summary: Club is great! Was on a Cleveland Hi Bore XL previously but wasn't as accurate. The XTD is really easy to to make good contact. Just good tempo and the same setup and it goes straight and far. Not as long as the Hi Bore but much more consistent. Shaft is light however, only 55 grams.
Summary: I'm fairly new to the sport of golf and borrowed this a short while ago for a trial. I was dubious at first because Adams isn't a well known name in Europe. The sudden confidence it gave me on the fairway though was immense.
Summary: This is a square driver that sets up beautifully (no closed face); the somewhat rounded edges make it look less radically different from traditional drivers than other square models I have tried.
