With its newest adjustable driver, the Speedline Tech, Adams Golf is promising significantly greater distance as well as significantly improved accuracy.

"We used advanced construction methods and made refinements to driver technologies that we've developed over time to make this our most customizable and best performing driver for golfers of all skill levels," said Vice President of Research and Development Tim Reed. "It's easy for the golfer to make adjustments and find their perfect ball flight while achieving even higher swing speeds and more distance through our aerodynamic shaping."

FASTfit Adjustability is Adams' solution for quick and easy club customization. The Speedline Tech driver can be tuned by unscrewing the hosel and rotating the head to fit any golfer's swing type and preferred ball flight. FASTfit allows the club to be set open or closed by up to 1 degree, thereby adjusting the loft +/- 1 degree as well. The clubhead also can be adjusted 2 degrees upright.

Through their research, Adams engineers found that golfers hit the ball high on the toe area of the clubface and low on the heel area as much or more than they hit it dead center. Taking this into account, they designed the Speedline Tech's clubface to provide optimal spin and launch in all three of those hitting areas. As a result, they say, the Speedline Tech produces drives up to 11 yards longer and 54 percent more accurate than golfers are used to hitting.

The new driver features such lightweight materials as titanium and carbon fiber to make it easier to swing, and the sixth generation of Adams’ aerodynamic shaping of slopes and curves help the club cut through the air faster for even more clubhead speed and distance.

The Speedline Tech driver comes in 8.5-, 9.5-, 10.5- and 12.5-degree right-handed models and 9.5- and 10.5-degree left-handed models. It is available now with a suggested retail price of $449.99.
