Idea MB2 Iron
Adams MB2 ( Awesome )
I actually just bought the new CMB Adams and really liked the look and feel, only problem is the KBS Tour CTaper were to heavy at 120 grams. I found a set of the MB2 with a set of the MATRIX OZIK PROGRAM 95 Grams shafts $720 shaft upgrade and boy are these things awesome, traded the CMBs in for the MB2 that day.

Best irons on the market!!!!
I recently decided to get new irons and honestly, was not thinking of getting adams. I was looking at the top brands, such as TM, Callaway, Titleist, Nike etc. Then I started looking into adams and wanted to try the adams pro a12 and the mb2. I hit both and they were both great. However for where my game is at, the mb2's are better fitting for my game. These irons are great. The feel is unbelievable. You could hit the ball with your eyes closed, and know where its going. Also for a blade, the forgiveness is pretty great. These wer the most accurat irons I hit, and only lost a small amount of distance on mis-hits. Anoher thin thats great is the features of this club. They come standard with KBS stiff tour shafts, and golf pride grips. Also (this may turn some people away from the club) The raw finish is super sexy. This eventually leads to rust, which is also prtty cool looking. The raw finish provides deeper groove volume, and better feel, which is very easy to see. Overall these irons are amazing, and I believe that these are the best irons sold today. Your are doing a disservice to your golf game if you don't at least try them.

best irons ever!
as a assistant pro at a golf course im always able to get ahold of the latesr and greatest. i was playing with a set of srixon forged irons and when the adams rep came to my course with the mb2's i was hooked instantly. i have worked with the kbs tour shafts before so i already knew what i needed with those. i orderd a custom set as soon as possible. kbs tour x shaft, 1 inch loner than standard length. blades have always been easy to hit for me and these just make it so much easier it feels like i barely have to swing to get the maximum from these clubs. i would recomend these clubs to a player of any skill level.

Best Irons I have ever had
Adams MB2 Irons-
Pros: Forged, Feel and Forgiveness with a smaller head and top line, stock KBS tour shafts and multi compound grips, color, Price, equal weighting throughout the set.
Cons: They gouge really easy. My very first hit with these looked as if I took a chisel to the face. (It just striped the outer coating off but felt rough/sharp to the touch)
Bottom Line: If you like a blade iron with the forgiveness of a cavity back these are for you.
"The Idea MB2 Irons are specifically designed with better players in mind. This set of tour-proven muscle-back irons features a raw finish that allows for maximum groove volume and better feel. The MB2 Irons feature brass weight plugs in the sole area that lowers the center of gravity (CG) for precise shot shaping and control." ADAMS WEB SITE
Looks: First look out of the box was Man I like these. The raw color of the head says I'm meant to be used. That coupled with the color of the shaft and grip, they just go together. It goes with My bag, all dark clubs. I like the look of the 5 brass inserts and the etching detail along the top line, kind of gives the irons their own personality. These are far from shovels, for me the smallest iron head I have ever used. The thing I like about these most is that they rust. This gives them the cool patina look that they have been around the block a couple times.
I had a guy ask me how long I have had them, Did your Pop give those to you. I laughed and said, I have only had them for 2 months and no they were not used.
Performance/playability: Performance wise, it took me a couple days to get use to. AT first I was thinking too much. Oh these are blade I can't hit these, man these shafts feel weird compared to the PX 6.0s etc. After they warmed up to me, Boy was I wrong. These are really easy to hit. I hit these higher and longer than any previous set I have owned. I'm able to fade these, slice the ball when need with the longer irons. I draw the ball normally and with these, that will continue to happen. They cut through the turf like a hot knife in butter. I also get enough spin to suit my game. As for the 3 and 4 irons, I have never hit one before because I learned to play with hybrids. Well with these irons, it's no issue. I use them on the tee, in the rough and fairways. I have no issue get them up (so to speak) or keeping the ball down into the wind. I do think I have lost any distance, if I have it is not that noticeable.
Feel: After I got use to the irons, they fell amazing. The shaft and head combo is really smooth which allows me to feel everything. I can feel the ball across the whole club face, although the hosel hits can fell really harsh everything else is tolerable. When hit on the sweat spot, it feels like I'm hitting a marsh mellow. These are better feeling iron then my Pro Golds hands down, and will go out on a limb and say better the MX23s I had.
Overall bottom line: I love these iron. Once you get use to them they will do anything you need them to do. You will get the play ability of a blade and the feel and forgiveness of a cavity back or game improvement iron. The price line is great for this caliber of iron. I think it will be hard to find anything out there that is better IMHO. If you are looking for an iron that gives off the look that they have been played hard and put up wet, these are the irons for you. These irons where made for the Pro's/ Low handicap player but can be used by anyone hence me the 14 handicap player.

I once asked a sales' rep back when I was a club pro, "When is somebody going to come out with a "raw" iron finish?" Adams has finally done it in a "player's" grind. I finally bought a set this AM and so excited about playing with them, I'll probably bail from work after lunch.

Best round ever First time out.
I am a 10 and have been struggling lately 88 89 last two rounds using Adams a12 pro which I really liked, however on my first round with the mb2 I shot a 74.
Ball just explodes off the club face and get excellent accuracy from the clubs. Not mention how sweet these things look.

I have been playing blades for a good bit now. Mizuno's, Wilson, Cleveland's, and now Adams. Feel wise these are top notch. I have the same length +/- a couple yards, and workability now as with the others, but the feel is probably best with these. I hit the ball a lot lower with these even with the same shafts I have in others but still carry the ball roughly the same yardage. Now please keep in mind, off center hits, sting..... good thing about that is you learn really quick to not do it again.

MB2's are for you
I'm am considered a beginning golfer, however my first set of clubs was my fathers Greg Norman blades by Cobra, great clubs but boy did they give me a hard time while I was learning my swing late in high school. Subsequently I put the game away as I went off to college and picked it back up here in my early 30's as my friends and colleagues found a interest in it. But you know how first go, I never got out of my head the look of those classic blades.
My most recent set was the Adam's Idea A4 forged irons with hybrid set and I have nothing but positives to say about those clubs, my only issue is that I hit the ball high, it's not high and short but just higher than most because of my swing. I typically hit my 7-iron 180, 8-iron 160, etc, but the high ball flight was something I wanted to remedy. Well lo' and behold, out comes Adams with what I think are some of the best looking clubs I've ever seen, coupled with a classic blade shape that I never stopped liking and a shaft that compliments my style and well wahlah! their in my bag with no looking back.
My first day out on the course with my new sticks and I had random people asking me about the clubs and complimenting the looks. Are they accurate? yes, as long as your swing is on. are they long? yes as long as your swing speed is up there, are they good looking, absolutely even when your swing is off.. Would I recommend them, resounding yes. And heres why--
The good looks make you want to hit them well and may cause you to consider lessons if your swing is wanting. You'll do this just so you can use them to the benefit of all watching these gorgeous sticks in action. I was out a par-3 the other day, 185 to center of green the gps doohickey was telling me, so I thought I'd tee it a bit close to the grass and give it a solid whack with my new MB2 7-iron. I didn't know what would happen with my new sticks but the Idea A4's would put the ball out there no problem so I figured I'd give it a go, ball landed softly stopped on green and moved to it's left 12-inches toward the cup for what was a pin-high shot that carried the full 185yd, I'm not a long hitter with my other clubs but my iron play is long. either way I am impressed and will tell the world about my new sticks.
So there you have it, a club that not only looks good but makes you a better player by forcing you to improve, what more can you ask for? Hey Adam, do you make putters that make you better?
