The 2010 Hot List: Driver

Thank you Golf Digest for this review:


LOFTS: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12.5;
Draw: 9.5, 10.5

TECH TALK: Making a driver aerodynamically efficient and forgiving would seem like a difficult challenge. But that's the intent of the Fast 10. Adams engineers studied computational fluid dynamics and used wind-tunnel testing to reshape the curves along the undercarriage for improved airflow. They also pushed the center of gravity (CG) low and deep to improve forgiveness and to help average golfers launch the ball higher.

(H) "Easy to swing, and the ball took off with an aggressive sound."
(M) "The trajectory might be a little higher than some people want, but it's a high-launching bomber."
(L) "Traditional round, deep face. The top is very classic, but the bottom is not. Looks like a 9-wood going out there; it's that high. Feels solid with just enough noise."

HOT: Adams improved aerodynamics before anyone, and the company continues to innovate in this area.
NOT: Adams still trails others in terms of maximizing a driver's moment of inertia (MOI).
