Adams Golf have announced the arrival of the new Blue line of products, a uniquely designed set of clubs which includes a driver, fairway wood, hybrid and combination iron set. Each piece in the Adams Blue set the American company claims was created to help golfers get the ball in the air more easily and more consistently.
All in, they say Blue delivers an aesthetically-pleasing and confidence-inspiring lineup of clubs, with each product in the line featuring Adams’ new, proprietary Easy Launch SystemTM.
Three key performance features
Adams’ Easy Launch System is comprised of three key performance features that work together to give golfers more air. Combine these features with an internal draw bias and a pleasing, inviting shape at address and the result is Blue: a line of clubs that work for the golfer to make the game more fun and less intimidating.
The first feature of the Easy Launch System, which derives its heritage from previous Adams models, is the Velocity Slot Technology on the soles of the clubs, which delivers more flex from the clubface and produces more consistent ball speed at impact. This leads to improved distance and accuracy, resulting in increased enjoyment for a wide range of golfers who will realize the performance benefits of Blue.
The Easy Launch System also implements low/back CG, which can be found in all metalwoods and irons throughout the Blue lineup. By keeping the centre of gravity low and as far back as possible, it allows for higher launch, more spin, and ultimately more air time on all shots. When the ball stays in the air, it flies further. Blue’s CG placement will help many swing speeds and swing styles achieve optimal launch conditions.
Engineered for higher, straighter shots
In addition to the Velocity Slot Technology and low/back center of gravity, new Adams SlimTechTM shafts have been integrated into Blue, utilizing narrower shaft tip diameters to promote lower kick points and high launch conditions from any lie on the course.
- Driver & Fairway – .320mm tip (vs .350 in most standard products)
- Hybrids & Irons – .350mm tip (vs .370 in most standard products)
“Quite simply, Adams Blue is engineered to help golfers hit higher, straighter shots more consistently,” said Brian Bazzel, Senior Director, Product Creation. “Through a sophisticated, simple design, Blue matches an aesthetically-pleasing look with proven performance technologies to make the game more fun for more golfers.”
