Adams Golf Launches Speedline Fast 12 Driver
New Aerodynamic Shaping Produces the Fastest, Longest and Most Forgiving Speedline Driver Ever
PLANO, TEXAS, December 27, 2011 – Adams Golf (NasdaqCM:ADGF) announces the new Speedline Fast 12 driver – the fastest, longest and most forgiving Speedline driver ever developed. The Fast 12 incorporates the new Airfoil Design to produce a 460cc driver with 14% less drag for an increase of up to 3 mph in club head speed and, at the same time, a nearly 10% increase in forgiveness.
“The Speedline Fast 12 driver is a significant technological step forward in the quest for large footprint and high MOI driver that also provides the speed of modern aerodynamic designs,” said Scott Burnett, Director of Advanced Product Development for Adams Golf.
Adams Golf led the industry into the aerodynamic revolution with the original Speedline in 2009 and continues to make refinements for better airflow attachment. The Airfoil Design of the Fast 12 driver incorporates crown elements such as the trip steps seen in its predecessor, the Fast 11, along with new design elements on the sole and skirt of the club that provide maximum aerodynamic benefits throughout the entire swing path. The result is 14% less drag and up to a 3 mph increase in club head speed.
The Airfoil design in the new Fast 12 driver provides forgiveness never seen before in a aerodynamically designed driver, an increases of nearly 10%. It has the MOI equivalent to the square drivers of the past, which were extremely forgiving, but had such high drag that they slowed down swing speeds causing much less distance. In addition to its technical enhancements, the Fast 12 features a satin silver crown color to inspire confidence at address.
