As most of u already know. GD is having an OCT sale. I was looking at the Fast12 Driver and Was thinking of buying it. But i need some feedback before i make a decision as i have NEVER tried adams stuff before. So.. Anyone with experience and can give me a rough comparison lets say, versus the R11 or any other driver.. I'd be most grateful Smile

New here Peace

Bro, I have the Fast 12 and I like it quite a bit. If you know me, you'll know that I can't drive to save my life. But, the Fast 12 does wonders. It's quite forgiving and from my perspective, it's quite long off the tee too. I think the length comes from the slightly longer and lighter stock shaft (mine's the Graffaloy Prolaunch Blue).

But, I should caveat this by saying that:

1. My previous driver was the Adams 9064LS which was also really good for me. That had better dispersion but wasn't quite as long.

2. I like Adams equipment. I think they are one of the most underrated clubmakers out there. Very good and solid stuff. So, my opinion may be biased.

3. I have installed the Tour Lock Pro on my driver which (again, for those who know me) has helped keep my ball in play a lot more.

4. Notwithstanding the good stuff above, the driver is loud. It's not as loud as say the Cleveland Monster XLS but it is loud. And, you can tell if you've mishit the ball almost immediately Smile

5. I've only gamed the driver twice but it's done decently well on both occasions.

Hope this helps Smile

Hey, TS. Thank you for the input and feedback. Now i'm a little worried about dispersion when u bring that up.

I have used the Burner 2.0 TP, the shaft was definitely longer than standard length, shaft was too light for me too. I sprayed quite a few shots with that, so i sold it lol.

Guess i might take a step back for more feedback first. Was actually looking at the R11 too. I rmb at one point in time i loved the weight of the R11. or maybe cuz of its overall swing weight.

My current driver (don't get me wrong i still love it alot. Very accurate) is on 60g stiff shaft and i find i love the feel of it when i swing it. Can really feel the club head through impact, maybe a slightly lighter swing weight will benefit me and hopefully SR flex. I only get annoyed that mcgregor does not carry anymore stock for its adapters. if not i rather opt to go for a shaft fitting.

Just bought the v3 too. Seems to cause draw/hooks .
Otherwise, it feels like a solid club and quite easy to launch.
Distance wise, yup just like a 3iron.
Finally can bridge the gap Very Happy
