Cut-Thru Slot Drives New Adams XTD Clubs

The folks from Adams Golf make their XTD line for better golfers, and this fall the equipment maker is releasing a new series of offerings under that appellation. Justin Honea, senior director of research and development at Adams, says the series sets new benchmarks for forgiveness and ball-speed generation. Start with the XTD driver. Honea says that Adams redeined the manufacturing process for this product by testing each head four times to ensure the hottest permissible face within regulatory limits, and the tightest tolerances.
In addition, he explains, these XTDs feature Cut-Thru Slot technology, which increases face lex and expands the sweet spot to produce greater ball speeds on off- and on-center hits. As for the XTD Ti fairways and hybrids, they utilize titanium faces and crowns as well as Cut-Thru Slot technology and progressive face thickness to redistribute mass and provide greater face speeds as well. The center of gravity in these clubs is optimally low, Honea says, so players ind it easier to get their shots airborne. The XTD Ti fairways and hybrids also boast a sleeve for face-angle adjustability, from 11⁄2 inches open to 11⁄2 inches closed.
