Idea Tech V4 Hybrids
A demo day surprise...
Was looking at hybrids at a May demo day, and I was a bit concerned about the ball ballooning. Then, someone suggested I try the V4.
I ended up getting the 22* 4H. The Bassara R-flex shaft has a low, hot launch, but reaches good height at peak... holds well into wind - this helps off tee on tight par 4s. Can get slight draw, or softer fade for longer approach clubs. Has become "go to" club for scary shots.
Fills gap between 7W and 4i. Also, I got V4 3H to sub for 7W on windy days.

The clubs are the answer for the high handicapper who struggles with irons. From the 4 - 7 the feel and the contact is the best I've ever had. The 8, 9 and wedges while not hybrids are close and provide the same forgiving contact. I ordered a second set for a vacation home and was disappointed that the 7 is no longer available in the hybrid. That seems to be my go-to club so I'll have to settle for the same style as the 8 and 9. That's a small price to pay for my new found confidence from the fairway.

These clubs improved my game significantly
Although I'm a new golfer I quickly discovered my starter set was holding me back. I tried all the major club manufacturers and found the Adams V4 Hybrids the only ones that fit my swing. I was looking for the right balance of club head weight and the Adams felt smooth as butter. I quickly adapted to their feel and am getting 15% more yardage from every club, with fewer out of bounds. These clubs are very useful under any conditions and lie, something important to a relative beginner. Thanks.

When they say "hotter", they mean it!
I'm a 53 year-old high handicapper, didn't take up the game until my mid-40s. It's mostly my short game that kills me, but we'd all like more distance, right? I realize that a lot of companies say their clubs add more distance each year, and if that were true, I'd be hitting a pitching wedge about 200 yards by now! After going through a couple of starter sets, I settled on the Cleveland HB-3 hybrid irons, which worked for a player of my level. After carrying an Adams XTD hybrid and loving it, I switched my HB-3s to the Adams A12OS a couple of years ago. I found them much easier to hit, while gaining about 10 yards for each club.
I heard and read about the new Adams Tech V4 hybrids and stopped by the local golf shop for a closer look. The fitter put me on the launch monitor so I could compare them against my A12s, and let me switch back and forth. I hit the #4 and #5 hybrids, and all I can say is the cut-through technology on the V4 hybrids is EVERYTHING ADAMS SAYS IT IS! I was consistently 15 yards longer than my A12 hybrids, with no loss in accuracy. SOLD!
I hit the Tech V4 7-iron, which has no velocity slot. I gained a consistent 5 yards over the A12OS 7-iron. Not bad, but I was hoping for gains similar to the hybrids. Then we switched from steel to the lighter graphite shaft. I had a slightly larger spray pattern, as expected, but still tight enough to keep me on the green if I aim for the center. Meanwhile, it added a consistent 9 - 11 yards over my current 7-iron. SOLD!
If you're a mid-high handicapper looking for improved distance and accuracy, I would highly recommend you check out the new Tech V4 hybrid irons!

The best hybrids, I have ever hit
Felt great in my hands and felt even better hitting them. Improved my distance by 15 yrds. Very forgiving.

The Idea Tech V4 is a dud
Having bought a set of Adams clubs 2 years ago which I enjoy playing as a second set while on holiday I recently purchased the Idea Tech V 4 hybrids to replace some aging Cobra utilities namely 3,4,5 & 6 and unfortunately I had to rely on the Adams web site and the odd review as they are not available in my country.
I spent several hours on the driving range today hitting over 100 balls and comparing them to my Cobra's which by the way have served me well for over 5 years. The Idea Tech V4's can be simply summed up as duds. I am lucky if I get the same distance out of them and it is with a lower ball flight, albeit straight, in addition they sound dead with no definite ping of a good hit. After 2 hours of use the black faces are showing scuff marks plus wear and it would appear that they are not very durable.
I would consider these the worst clubs I have bought. Don't get me wrong Adam's usually build great clubs and in fact I bought my wife a full ladies set of the V4's and she loves them but the design and style of them is totally different to the men's.
A final comment is that it took a full 5 weeks to get them through Golfsmith.

These hybrids are well made and easy to use.
I had a chance to play one round of golf with these hybrid clubs. There was no opportunity to try them out on the driving range. During the entire round I only had one shot where I used one of the hybrid clubs. I used a No. 5 hybrid for a 175 yard approach shot. After a few practice swings, I hit the ball straight at the green. My shot was a little long and the ball rolled off the green a few yards. Not the club's fault for sure. Wish I had a chance to play another round with these hybrids.

I have always had steel shafts. I was amazed at how easy it was for me to keep the same swing and hit the ball so well.
I have had Callaway cavity back irons with steel shafts for 9 years. I was amazed at how easy it was for me to keep the same swing and hit the ball even further than I usually do. I plan to look into fareway woods and drivers from Adams now.
