Adams Golf has introduced its XTD irons with a cross-cavity design combined with Cut-Thru velocity slots, which the company claims, creates distance through technology instead of strengthened lofts. The XTD series has the company’s thinnest cast-iron face to date, promoting maximum deflection and ball speed. Designed for players of all skill levels, XTD irons have a centre of gravity moved off the face to generate gear effect similar to a hybrid resulting in corrective spin to straighten off-centre hits.
Justin Honea, senior director of research and development said, “As opposed to the standard practice of strengthening irons lofts, we’re providing distance while retaining optimal ball flight. By integrating thinner faces and Cut-Thru Slot technology into irons, we’re making it much easier for players to produce higher, longer, straighter and more consistent shots.”
