First Look: Adams XTD Forged irons
The XTD Forged, a hybrid-iron set for low handicappers, has a flexible, lively face in the 5-iron through PW thanks to a “Cut-Thru” slot in the sole. Its thin, forged maraging steel face increases ball speed and generates higher launch.
Adams claims it’s the fastest face of any forged players’ model because of the slot and full cavity behind the face. Additionally, foam between the face and cavity softens feel.
At the “long” end of the set, two Super DHy driving irons (21° and 24°) replace standard 3- and 4-irons. Set of eight: $1,099, steel. Available on December 1.
