New Adams Speedline drivers offer a wealth of improvements
January 11, 2012

Adams Golf will launch two new drivers in March. The Speedline Fast 12 offers improved aerodynamics and greater forgiveness for the mid- to high-handicapper, while for the more advanced player the Speedline Fast 12 LS produces lower-spin combined with extensive adjustability.

The Speedline Fast 12 Driver

Adams say this is the fastest, longest and most forgiving Speedline driver they have ever developed. Incorporating a new Airfoil Design has enabled the use of a 460cc head with 14% less drag, giving an increase of up to 3 mph in club head speed, while at the same time allowing an almost 10% increase in forgiveness.

Adams Speedline Fast 12 Driver“The Speedline Fast 12 driver is a significant technological step forward in the quest for large footprint and high MOI driver that also provides the speed of modern aerodynamic designs,” said Scott Burnett, Director of Advanced Product Development for Adams Golf.

Adams Golf led the industry into the aerodynamic revolution with the original Speedline in 2009 and continue to make refinements for better airflow attachment. The Airfoil Design of the Fast 12 driver incorporates crown elements such as the trip steps seen in its predecessor, the Fast 11, along with new design elements on the sole and skirt of the club that provide maximum aerodynamic benefits throughout the entire swing path. The result is 14% less drag and up to 3 mph more club head speed.

The Airfoil design in the new Fast 12 driver provides forgiveness never seen before in a aerodynamically designed driver, with an increase of nearly 10%. It has the MOI equivalent of the square drivers of the past, which were extremely forgiving, but had such high drag that they slowed down swing speeds, with loss of distance. In addition to its technical enhancements, the Fast 12 features a satin silver crown color to inspire confidence at address.

Loft options for the standard version are 8.5°, 9.5° and 10.5° in right-handed, and 9.5° and 10.5° for left-handed. The Speedline Fast 12 Draw Driver will be offered in 10.5° in right-handed, while the Women’s Speedline Fast 12 Driver wil come in 12° and HL in right-handed.

The Speedline Fast 12 Driver comes as standard with the Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue shaft, featuring Speed Coat Technology, and will be available in stores from March 1 at a MRRP of £249.

The Speedline Fast 12 LS Driver

The highly adjustable Adams Speedline Fast12 LS DriverFor the more advanced golfer, the new Speedline Fast 12 LS (Low Spin) driver – combines Adams’ industry leading aerodynamic technology with adjustability. The Fast 12 LS driver is Adams Golf’s lowest spinning aerodynamic driver ever, and the only driver in the industry currently offering length adjustability.

“In the Speedline Fast 12 LS, we developed a low spinning, adjustable and aerodynamic driver that appeals to the better player,” said Justin Honea, Director of Product Development for Adams Golf. “Combining all of the performance characteristics with adjustability was the best way to do this. Giving players the option of changing lengths as well as loft and lie gives us a competitive advantage over the rest of the industry.”

The Fast 12 LS' extensive adjustability comes via a very discreet hosel design. Golfers can adjust loft and face angle, lie, and length:
• Loft can be adjusted up to +/- 1°
• Lie can be adjusted upright to +2°
• Standard length of the Fast 12 LS is 45", but can be adjusted to 45.5".

A removable weight in the back of the club head allows the golfer to lighten the club when it is lengthened in order to maintain the same swingweight. Adding a half inch in length provides increased ball speed, increased launch angle, and additional carry distance.

The Speedline Fast 12 LS driver’s standard shaft will be the Tour spec Fubuki Alpha with MD Technology, which is designed for the player who wants a more stable, lower spinning shaft.

Loft options are 8.5°, 9.5° and 10.5° in right-handed, 9.5° and 10.5° for left-handed.

The Speedline Fast 12 LS Driver will be available in stores from March 1 at a suggested retail price (MRRP) of £349.
