Adams Golf is best known for the superb game-improvement clubs it has long produced for higher handicap golfers. But the Plano, Tex., company also knows how to make high-performance products for tour professionals as well as for elite amateurs and better recreational golfers. Such as its recently released Idea Pro Black CB1 and Idea Black CB2 irons, both of which are made of forged 8620 carbon steel with nickel-chrome plating and a dark, PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finish.
The CB1 is truly a player’s club, with a thin top-line and beveled trailing edge designed to reduce turf interaction. It also boasts a constant offset throughout the entire set for superior control and workability. Each head in this line has a precision milled cavity and a precisely located center of gravity for longer, more consistent distance with improved accuracy.
“Originally developed for our professional staff players like Tom Watson, the CB1s engendered such overwhelmingly positive comments from the tours about their feel and performance that we decided to make them an integral part of the successful Idea family of irons,” says Chip Brewer, president and CEO of Adams Golf. “This stealth-looking set had already received high marks from golf enthusiasts plugged into the online community, and we wanted to bring CB1s to low-handicap golfers everywhere.”
The CB1 offers right-handed sets in 4-GW. The stock shafts are Rifle Project X Flighted steel or Mitsubishi Rayon Javln FX i95 graphite, available in regular, stiff and extra-stiff flexes.
As for the CB2 irons, they are geared for the aspiring player who wants a bit more forgiveness.
“The CB2s have a progressive offset that enhances distance through the line and helps the clubs launch a bit higher,” says Michael Vrska, director of product development for Adams. “They also feature a vibration-absorbing cavity design for optimal feel and sound and dual perimeter weighting that lowers the center of gravity for greater forgiveness. The result is a very versatile club that will appeal to lower handicap players as well as those up into the mid-teens.”
Available for both right-handed and left-handed players, the CB2s come in 4-GW set configurations with steel (KBS Tour 90 stock) or graphite (Matrix Studio 84) shafts.
