Club:Adams Golf Blue Shaft Irons:True Temper Dynalite SlimTech 85g Shaft Hybrids:Aldila SlimTech 55g Flex: Both Stiff
When you first take hold of the Adams Blue Irons you get a feel for how Adams have tried to combine all their know-how from years of research and development into making these game improving irons one of the best on the market. But what I liked was the fact this wasn’t to the detriment of the design, of course with the wider sole and thick top line they are never going to compete with the beauty of a blade, but they are far from clumsy looking and in fact have their own classic lines.
So I was looking forward to putting the blues through their paces over several courses in the Catalunya region of Spain, culminating in a tough test over the PGA Cataluya Stadium course which is the showpiece of Spain’s Ryder Cup 2022 bid.
The foundation of the Blue Irons is the Easy Launch system that is a combination of three different technologies. Firstly you have the Velocity Slot, the club gives more flex and speed when the ball makes impact with the face and with the center of gravity being lower and further back it helps give the irons a great launch angle.
The last of the three technologies that is used in the Adams Blue is the SlimTech Shaft which has a lower kick point – the shaft flexes nearer the head – again helping you to get the ball on a nice high trajectory.
The irons have a slight draw biased and all the above mentioned technology and the wide sole for perfect turf interaction gives the Adams Blue irons plenty of forgiveness.
If this is your first big investment after just taking up the game or you are looking for a new game improving iron, I would highly recommend you put the Adams Blue Irons on your testing list. As a low handicap golfer I can really see the benefits of what Adams are trying to achieve with the technology they have used.
One thing I do have to say is I loved the distances I was achieving with these, I normally hit my 7-iron between 150-160 yards, I was hitting the Adams Blue 7-iron 170-180 yards, giving me more control of the ball from further out, which set me up for a fair few birdie chances over the PGA Cataluya course, if only my putter was as hot!!
