correct me if i'm wrong, but i think low spin drivers mainly help to reduce back spin, but will not have any significant effect on reducing side spin

i think the type of ball will have a greater effect on side spin.

TourSwing, any reason why you picked the LS version instead of the non-LS version?

PS: Tourswing plays the fast12. He loves it.

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

Dude, I am VERY interested in your driver setup. Need to find a time to meet up at the range or for a game.

I loved my 910d2 but against the wind I was losing out on a lot of distance ... the ball was ending up close to its pitchmarks ... Clearly a sign of too much spin. I changed my shafts to one of the stiffest around, and changed my driver swing to get an upwards angle of attack .. All this helped, but trackman contd to tell me there was a distance loss due to spin. When there is too much spin the ball baloons and then lands at a steep angle: resulting in less carry and less roll!

Thats when I read up on low spinning driver heads and the Adams Fast 12 LS was getting rave reviews on THE golf forum in the US. To be honest, I never considered the standard Fast 12, as my objective was always to lower spin.

Adams drivers, fwy woods, hybrids are all bombers ... and if distance is your primary goal you cant go wrong with their equipment. You can get incredibly cheap deals on ebay ... and therefore theres not much resale value.

Thanks, TourSwing.

I've tried my fair share of drivers and love Adams. They produce great drivers. My 9064 is a good club. Just wanted to try the Fast 12 because of its shape. Looked unique especially with those "wi-fi" wavy lines at the back Smile

I am definitely swinging this club faster, but thats partly due to stepping down to a 60+ shaft from a 70+

So, you didn't use the stock Graffaloy ProLaunch shaft?

Three stock options to cater to different players:

Matrix: low launch, low spin
Fubuki: mid
Grafalloy: higher than fubuki

My violent swing warrants low launch, low spin Very Happy
