Looks like Ernie Els has put some new irons into the bag again, this time, the ADAMS XTD irons (tour version). Not really surprised with Ernie going with a bag with these cavity backed irons, just shows even the pros need some help sometimes!

Ever since TM took over Adams, Adams seems to be producing TM-like clubs. I hope it's not going to be a case of form over function.

I still love the classic Adams CB3, Pro A12 and CMB irons.

The XTD - bleurgh!

There s no leadg direction fr Adams after. Neutral 
TM buy over purely fr the market shares thingy n they ll n must continued to produce the best fr their main line n tats only TM. Adams can only copy n paste method. Sad! Crying or Very sad 

Agreed w Techno bro. Wink

haha, fair enough! have to agree that it's getting harder to differentiate Adams clubs and TMAG clubs these days.

Got a team member here still playing some older boxer A4 hybrids and loves them!

Here is an interview on TM Chief Technical Officer on how TM would position TM and Adams Golf ... I remember at one time, TM mentioned that Adams Golf will design more user-friendly/GI clubs for the masses whilst TM clubs will be more for the players in the long run ... Looking at Els' latest irons, Adams is really heading towards this direction ...

We were at the Vancouver Golf Show today and hit the normal XTD Cross Cavity irons... even though they look chunky, they are actually not so bad when you address the ball!

also had the chance to hit the XTD Forged irons and much prefer the look and feel of those.... two extremes for Adams, players irons and super game improvements... no middle ground lol
