For Immediate Release
Adams Golf Launches Speedline Fast 12 Fairway Wood.
New Aerodynamic Shaping Produces the Fastest, Longest and Most Forgiving Speedline Driver Ever.
PLANO, TEXAS, December 27, 2011 – Adams Golf (NasdaqCM:ADGF) introduces the Speedline Fast 12 fairway wood featuring the second generation of Velocity Slot Technology (VST). The second generation includes a slot within a slot on both the crown and sole of the club for even more ball speed, unparalleled forgiveness and better launch conditions.
Kenny Perry, PGA Tour professional, became a believer in VST when during his initial test his carry distance increased from 254 yards using his previous 3-wood to 289 yards. “This is the hottest 3-wood I have ever hit,” Perry said. “This thing is a rocket. I gained 35 yards, which definitely made me feel young again.”
Second Generation Velocity Slot Technology
The Fast 12 fairway wood features Second Generation Velocity Slot Technology (VST). Second Generation VST – a slot within a slot – has helped engineers build upon the benefits found in the first generation of VST producing an 11% increase in CT over the Speedline Fast 11, and a 22% increase over fairway woods without a slot. This is because the new slot design in the Fast 12 fairway wood allows the clubface to compress more thus delivering higher ball speed + higher launch angle for dramatically longer carry distance and total distance.
“By placing a slot within the slot, we were able to create a thinner and more flexible structure,” said Tim Reed, VP of Research and Development for Adams Golf. “This creates an even hotter face than we had in the first generation of VST. We also have been able to improve launch conditions even more by designing the top slot to flex more than the sole to increase launch angle without increasing spin.”
Velocity Slot Technology
Adams Golf pioneered the use of Velocity Slot Technology, which first debuted in the Speedline Fast 11 fairway woods and is the only manufacturer to incorporate slots in both the crown and the sole, thereby giving Adams Golf a technical advantage over other designs. In addition to the ball speed benefits of Velocity Slot Technology, engineers have found the technology dramatically improves the launch conditions and expands the “sweet spot” on the face.
“With the improved slot design, the Fast 12 fairway wood delivers unsurpassed forgiveness,” said Reed. “It’s a superior fairway wood with unmatched performance.”

The Fast 12 fairway wood will also feature a satin silver crown. It will come standard with the Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue featuring Speed Coat Technology. The Speedline Fast 12 Fairway Woods will be available online and in stores on January 26th and have an MSRP of $249.99.
