Our Review of the Adams a12 OS Hybrid/Iron Combo Set


Has Adams Golf created another winner with its Adams Idea a12 OS irons? They’re the most recent generation of the IDEA series, which has long been known for its revolutionary designs and reasonable pricing. Should you think you could be keen on the newest hybrid/iron combo set by a business that has been in the forefront from the “hybrid revolution,” you should continue to read our review of these Adams irons.

For quite a few years now, Adams has been a steadfast proponent of replacing long irons with easier-to-hit hybrids. Long irons are notoriously difficult to hit consistantly. Hybrids not only are simpler to hit but fly farther and higher than long irons. Even the pros are replacing their long irons with hybrids.

Like earlier Adams IDEA hybrid/iron combo sets, Adams Idea a12 OS irons are made to ensure that the hybrids “flow” seamlessly into the set’s mid-irons, generating the transition from 1 club to the next natural and unforced. That seamless transition is one reason the clubs won Golf Digest “Hot List” Gold Medals for 2012 within the Super Game Improvement and Innovation categories. I tested a set of these irons lately to view if they live as much as these awards.

Before I share my on-course experiences with all the irons, here’s a short description of their design features.

The standard set of Adams Idea a12 OS irons contains three hybrids (4-, 5- and 6-hybrid), 2 “transitional” hybrid irons (7 and 8) plus a standard cavity-back 9-iron, pitching wedge and gap wedge (AW). The stock steel shaft is the Adams True Temper Performance 85; the stock graphite shaft is the Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue (weight varies with the flex you select).

The set makeup is perfect for most starting golfers and others with handicaps above 15 or so. Everybody struggles with long irons, but the 4-, 5- and 6-hybrids inside the set removes that challenge altogether. Golfers with slower swing speeds will almost certainly get some yardage gain from these clubs since they all have an ultra-thin face, perimeter weighting plus a low center of gravity to promote high, hot launches and increased distance.

Adams’revolutionary “Velocity Slot Technology” is also built into these clubs. This certain function improves rebound across the club’s entire face, raising the launch angle and ball speed without increasing spin. Furthermore, it considerably enhances forgiveness. The Adams a12 OS hybrid are the very first hybrids to employ this technology. TaylorMade, which purchased Adams earlier this year, then came out with a similar technology in their RocketBallz line that they call "Speed Pocket" which is essentially the same thing.

As you’d expect from their name, the set’s two “transitional hybrids” (7 and 8 ) bridge the gap between the classic hybrids and the cavity-back, Adams Idea a12 OS irons (the 9, PW and AW). Their “Truss Back” style provides considerable perimeter weighting and lowers the center of gravity making them very forgiving on off-center hits.

Okay, what do these style functions mean when you are out on the course? Here’s what I learned when I tested a set of Adams Idea a12 OS irons.

They’re desirable for a super game-improvement set of clubs targeted at newbies, occasional golfers and players with handicaps of 15 or higher. Keep in mind that a few of their game-improvement characteristics are visible, and that may possibly make their looks unappealing to better players. For example, the quantity of offset isn't huge, but it’s definitely noticeable. The top line is thick. Plus the cavities of the cavity-back irons are deep and the soles are very large. All welcoming characteristics for a higher handicap player but not to a better player.

Speaking on the offset, these clubs are intended to assist the golfer in hitting the ball high, straight and long. But if you are like me and also have a natural draw, the offset within the Adams Idea a12 OS irons can be a killer mainly because you’ll pull everything left. Obviously, most golfers that will be excited about these clubs haven’t however developed a draw-promoting swing so the offset will not bother them. In truth, they’ll almost certainly be pleased to view it due to the fact it is going to enable them avoid slices! For those who have a tendency to slice the ball, the offset built into the Adams Idea a12 OS irons can be a genuine game-changer.

The Adams a12 OS IDEA hybrid/iron combo set is highly recommended for golfers looking for a "game improvement" iron set. Whatever set you are coming from we are confident that you will definitely notice an improvement in performance of these clubs which will in turn, improve your game and make golf a lot more fun to play.
