Adams Idea a3
$499, steel; $599, graphite; adamsgolf.comWe tested: 3-5 in Grafalloy ProLaunch Red graphite shaft; 6-PW in True Temper Players Lite steel shaft. Shaft Length/loft (6-iron): 37.875"/29°
Company line: "Our hybrid iron set has breakthrough shaping and category-leading MOI, as much as 70 percent higher than other leading hybrids. The set transitions to hollow-back middle irons and cavity-back short irons."
Our Test Panel Says:PROS: Three different head designs provide a club to get you out of any kind of trouble; hybrids are clearly longer than standard long irons; innovative concept blends three head types into one set with relatively traditional-looking lines; small, rounded heads on short irons offer reliable control.
CONS: Strong feedback could be too much when you miss the sweet spot; steel-shafted irons don't always seem to match graphite hybrids; surprisingly, off-center hits with irons lose noticeable distance.
