Looking for a New Set of Irons?

 Thanks to Golf Digest's hot list, I have spotted a great value to be had in a new Iron set. Please read below, and notice the price, especially when you compare it to other 700.00+ irons.


STREET PRICE: $500 (set of eight, steel)
LOFTS: 6-iron: 29 degrees, PW: 45 degrees

TECH TALK: The set starts with a pair of hybrids in the 3- and 4-iron slots, followed by a hollow, flat-faced 5-iron and cavity-back middle and short irons. Designers increased the sole camber on the hybrids from front to back and heel to toe to enhance playability from various lies.

(L) "A crisp sound. The thin topline makes you feel as if you're looking at a players club."
(M) "I was shocked to see they were game-improvement clubs. Everything is hidden. There aren't any wild angles."

HOT: When it comes to the integrated iron set, few companies do it better than Adams. The sole camber on the hybrids shows that the designers understand hybrids were meant to be easy-to-hit iron replacements. And a movement away from the box shape demonstrates that they "get" what resonates with golfers.
NOT: The company has been around since 1987 yet hasn't implemented a serious fitting program.
