Adams Golf's New XTD Cross Cavity Irons

XTD Cross Cavity Irons- Distance without sacrificing launch!
Adams Golf – known for its game-changing innovation and easy-to-hit equipment – introduces XTD irons with the industry’s first-ever cross-cavity design, combined with Cut-Thru velocity slots, to create distance through technology instead of strengthened lofts.
The XTD series houses the company’s thinnest cast-iron face to date, promoting maximum deflection and ball speed. Adams remains committed to finding greater distance through technical advances, while retaining proven design characteristics, such as a 28° loft on a 6-iron. Club engineering promotes ideal launch angles throughout the set, with explosive height off of the face, penetrating ball flight and more preferable descent in attacking the pin.
“As opposed to the standard practice of strengthening irons lofts, we’re providing distance while retaining optimal ball flight,” said Justin Honea, Senior Director of Research and Development. “By integrating thinner faces and Cut-Thru Slot technology into irons, we’re making it much easier for players to produce higher, longer, straighter and more consistent shots.”
An industry-first cross-cavity technology help keep errant-struck shots on their proper path. Constructed for
players of all skill levels, XTD irons boast a centre of gravity (CG) moved off the face to generate gear effect similar to a hybrid.
The result is corrective spin to straighten off-centre hits.
A priority for Adams’ engineering team was to redistribute mass from the face to the rear. Shifting CG to a more ideal location helps get the ball in the air faster and stabilizes the club at impact, especially on off-centre strikes, adding to overall consistency throughout a round.
Players will immediately take note of the improved alignment on XTD irons.
Framed score lines include a polished finish to set the club on its correct line at address. After contact, a pressure piston dramatically decreases vibration. Direct pressure on the back of the face produces the crisp sound of a forged iron, while competitors use a simple badge. This also encourages players to drive through the shot.
Key Features and Benefits:
- Cut- Thru Slot technology removes material behind the club face to increase deflection and
trampoline effect for more distance
- Cross Cavity design delivers gear effect similar to a driver for increased stability helping keep errant
struck shots on their proper path
- Pressure Piston- applies pressure directly to the back of the clubface to soften vibration and sound for
- Precision Alignment- multi finished face frames leading to a contrasting face design frames the ball for
- RH regular and stiff steel
- KBS Tour C- Taper 90
