PostSubject: Adams Speedline Fast 12   Tue Aug 28, 2012 9:34 am

Has anyone tried the Adams Speedline Fast 12? Would appreciate your thoughts on this especially if you've played the 9064LS before. A comparison between the 2 would be appreciated Smile

Thanks,
TS

I have the LS version... Too difficult for me to use.
It's super low spin.

TS I recommend the newer speed line tech driver. RAVE REVIEWS.


BTW Adams CMB is sweeeeeeeeeet


But that's just the adams slut in me talking

No, you're right. I've been out of touch. Too busy with work to keep up with things.

The SLT is really nice looking but it costs about US$250 on the low end but I'm tempted!

Yup, I have the Fast12LS and love it!

My 910D2 was great and still miss it a bit ... traditional look, and a more cultured feel ... seemed I could feel the ball compressing against the clubface at impact. A bit too much spin though, resulting in distance loss into the wind

Enter Fast12LS ... nothing traditional in terms of looks ... ball canons off the face at impact, almost like a trampoline effect ... and comes into its own in adverse wind conditions ... its like having a tour issue driver at a retail price! Comes with an aftermarket fubuki alpha or a matrix 6m3 shaft.

Bottom line: I would recommend the Fast12LS to anyone and everyone who has a high swing speed and struggles with excessive spin

Thanks, TourSwing! Great feedback. I struggle with excessive spin so a driver which helps to cut those wayward shots down would be nice Smile

High spin or side spin? If both, shorthitter & Tendy has the right driver for you...

think Tourswing meant he struggles with ballooning drives due to high spin rate

"sidespin" is just backspin at a tilt or an axis...ball can not back spin and side spin at the same time.

so spin axis is determined by difference between face angle at impact and our club path (swing path).

but can an LS driver help reduce how much we slice and hook? I dun know.

Side spin. I'm playing much better with my 9064LS now but as always, the itch beckons.

That's a good point. Perhaps the best thing to do is to go back and play golf on my PS3 instead. Always straight there.

so spin axis is determined by difference between face angle at impact and our club path (swing path).

but can an LS driver help reduce how much we slice and hook? I dun know.

PS, general consensus continues to be that a higher spinning driver is more accurate than a lower spinning one. The higher spinning driver (despite the increased spin) keeps the axis tilt more vertical compared to the alternative.

As for me, I prefer the outcome of my shot to be in my own hands ... and dont mind being penalized for a bad swing. However, if external factors like the wind influence the outcome, that pisses me off!

A lower spinning, more penetrating, ball flight works for me!

makes sense. to further illustrate

It's harder to hook or slice using a sand wedge

It's easier to hook or slice with a driver

I used to have an Adams 9064 LS and I slice and hook with that driver a lot! Suppose I stay with hack friendly drivers Laughing
