A new Adams Idea a12 hybrid appears at the Barclays

EDISON, N.J. – Adams Golf tour reps made a new, 17° Idea a12 hybrid for James Driscoll on Monday at Plainfield Country Club. Like the Adams Idea Pro a12 and Idea Pro Black hybrids, there is a place in the sole for a weighted screw to be added to lower the club's center of gravity, but gearheads will notice in the photos below that unlike other hybrids, this one features a channel in both the sole and the crown. Adams has only featured channels like these in the Speedline F11 and Speedline LP fairway woods.



Adams calls these channels duel velocity slots, and according to Christen Cervantes, an Adams tour rep, they allow a larger area of the face to flex back as the club hits the ball. "That expands the hot spot farther across the face," Cervantes says.

Does the technology actually work? During GOLF Magazine's most recent ClubTest, golfers who tried the Speedline F11 fairway woods said the clubs, "sacrificed little in terms of direction or distance on off-center hits."

Plenty of golfers would like to say that about their hybrids, too. As we learn more about the club, we'll be sure to let you know.
