Adams XTD Ti , Price: $299 MSRP with a graphite shaft.
Adams says its hottest hybrid face ever produces ball speeds similar to a driver. The key ingredients are "velocity slots" on the sole and crown that produce an enhanced trampoline effect at impact (67 percent more than traditional designs). The XTD Ti is constructed with a titanium crown and face, plus a steel sole. Its low center of gravity generates higher launch angles, while variable face thicknesses improve performance on mis-hits. Lastly, the adjustable hosel enables you to alter loft by +/- 1.5 degrees.
The Adams XTD Ti Hybrid is the first hybrid from Adams with progressive face thickness for up to 29% more speed on off-center hits, resulting in the most complete, hottest face hybrid ever created by Adams and faster ball speeds across the entire face. The new Cut-Thru slots and titanium brazing make these club face so fast, Adams needed to slow them down to conform to USGA regulations.
"The XTD product line is made from the best performing materials, utilize the most technology available regardless of costs, and are subject to the tightest manufacturing processes. In short, these are the best clubs we've ever made."
