Callaway Golf likes to talk about their number one position in the iron’s segment of golf equipment business with pride and well they should. The company has had many more winners in its iron lines than non-winners and for 2010 is introducing the Diablo Edge game improvement model and the Diablo Forged model for better players, both good possibilities to add to Callaway’s top spot.
Golf and the technology of global positioning or GPS have had a beneficial marriage for awhile and as in most marriages the relationship changes over time. The service giving yardages to the green, hazards and even exact hole locations has become much less expensive and is therefore gaining in popularity.
SeeMore putters received a lot of press coverage back in 1999 when Payne Stewart used one on his way to winning the U.S. Open at Pinehurst where in the final round, head to head with Phil Mickelson, he seemed to make everything.
In spite of that publicity the company could not make a go of it so in 2006 two industry veterans, Jim Grundberg and Jason Pouliot both formerly with market-dominant Odyssey Putter, bought SeeMore. The duo engineered a re-launch of SeeMore and right away they hit pay dirt.
Adams Golf is getting a small jump on the rest of the golf equipment makers by announcing their newest line of drivers and fairways prior to the PGA Merchandise Show which kicks off Jan. 28th in Orlando, Fla. Actually this isn’t a big deal since the next 30 days will see all the companies beating the drum about why their latest is greatest.
The big news about the new Tour Edge Exotics XCG-3 irons is not the technology but that the company again is providing golfers with clubs of the best quality and latest technology at the price of lesser brands…i.e. well below the “name brand” irons.
Equipment Reviews: New England Golf Monthly Adams a70S Hybrids 7 Hybrids & Hybrid Irons
In August of 2009 Adams golf introduced its new a70S set of clubs to the market.

The set consisted of Three Hybrids (3,4,5,), Two Mid Hybrid Irons (6,7,)and three Short Irons (8,9, and Pitching Wedge) The shafts on the set were Grafalloy Pro Launch Graphite / Stiff.
Over a 6-week period the clubs were hit on range conditions. Many different levels of players had the opportunity to hit the full range of clubs both off range mats and grass at the facility. During the testing period full range of low, mid and high Handicap level players had the opportunity to play a full 18 hole round of golf with the Adams a70S Clubs and provided our staff with feedback on the overall playability of the clubs and forgiveness and feel. Here are the Results by Handicap Level.
