Speedline 9088 UL Driver
Best Driver I ever owned
I usually take a new club to a driving range before I try it on the course. This time I went straight to #1 tee and proceeded to play 18 holes and only missed one fairway. The next day I played another 18 hole and only missed two fairways. Both were due to poor swings.
12.5° senior flex draw driver.

Perfect driver for those with a swing speed under 100mph.
I picked this club and a 5 wood up on ebay for 250 bucks.
It is the stock set up.
I demoed this driver at GS and was hitting it great so when I took it to the range I confimed that It was a good driver for me.
5 to 10 yards futher than my previous driver.
It is a fairway finder that is for sure.
A smooth even tempo works best for this driver.
This one will stay in my bag for a long time.

For the "normal" Golfer, the 9088UL is Excellent
Let me preface this "review" by saying my 9088UL has a "real" Fuji Blur 55 Shaft at 45 inches and the 12.5 degree head as opposed to the stock setup with the Radix shaft. The stock setup for me is too long in shaft length and the feel is not as pleasing as my setup.
My club maker had the Blur setup at this shop and I took to it well. The ball comes off the face as feeling "very soft."
What I loved about this driver was that it was getting me 7 mph more in swing speed over a TM Superfast 2.0 driver.
I guess the Adams aerodynamics work.
Aesthetically, the 3 notches on the face have no effect on me at address, especially with the black color. You know Adams placed them there to help.
My ball flight gets up and flatten out. The relatively high kick point of the Blur with the high lofted head is a great combo.
Forgiveness - if you leave the club face open, it still goes right. lol. But square it up, and my bad strikes are still fairway bound with decent length. Good strikes are high, long, and straight and for me, arrive with a slight draw. As long as with other drivers when I had more swing speed. At least from the feedback, I receive from my normal playing partners. I've reduced my speed in recent years due to surgery and a swing change. So a real 90 mph swing speed is something I aspire to achieve again after being 100 a few years ago.
If you are a normal Joe and the head works for you - dabble with a shaft. I buy a driver once every 2-3 years, so I don't mind getting it fit right and enjoying it.

Best Driver I have ever hit. Easy to swing, I turn it over like a 3 wood. Took a little getting use to because of the shallow face, so I just teed it up a little lower and found the sweet spot.

This is the fourth Adams driver I have had and I cannot believe each one has performed better than the last.
the 9088 is a great driver for playing a course like mine that has narrow tree lined fairways. For the first time in forty years of playing golf I can deliberately play a draw with a driver. The combination of the Matrix shaft and light head are definitely a winner.

Great new product. Feels terrific when driving.
Only negative is the black colour. Not durable. The face marked during my first round.

Ease to view at address
I have owned the Taylor Made R 11 and Callaway Razor Tour and neither compare to this driver. YOu are supposed to lose a little distance during colder weather but this with this club, I have not lost any at all and look to gain during warming weather days. Great setup and easy to hit.

4 mph swing speed + 4 mph ball speed increase!
See is believing...on the launch monitor. At 1 handicap and thinking I maxed out my distance, I hit the Adams UL skeptically. When I saw the numbers I thought, "no way". Then went to my club and hit three drives out of 14 the longest I had ever been on the course. With 12/14 fairways hit, I knew I found the perfect driver for me. Don't let the weight scare you, this is very easy to control. I love this DRIVER!
My only dislike is the color. I have had two other all black clubs and after a month, they look like junk! They look cool on the rack, but guys, please...
