Idea a7OS Set
Dropping my handicap....yeah!!
I was fitted for this set last season. I went from spraying the ball over the fairway to being much more consistent with all my shots. I had the most trouble controlling the 3,4,5, hybrids but I have worked them alot this Spring and feel much more comfortable with them. I am looking forward to a better season this year.

Bar code stickers
I have not used my new clubs yet. I have spent hours removing the bar code stickers on each club. I should have sent them back to Adams!
IF ANYONE ORDERS CLUBS FROM ADAMS YOU WOULD BE SMART TO MAKE SURE THE STICKERS ARE REMOVED BY ADAMS. I e mailed them for advise to remove the stickers but no response.

Clean, well-balanced and good looking!
I inherited two used sets, worked with them and took instruction from two PGA and LPGA instructors. Found that I needed my own measured set and purchased the a70S full regular set. My game has gone from spotty and out of control to NICE. The clubs are reliable in all aspects of my own game and I like the feel of the rubber grips which will be invaluable in Hawaii and other extremely humid regions. The driver took some practice getting used to and I trade off with another infrequently now. The PW, 7, 3W and driver are my most used. Having a fine set of clubs is the thing.

Everything is good except the driver
The driver is by far the worst driver I have ever used, shank it every time

Easy to hit and a great value, perfect for the beginning golfer who is ready to take it to another level.
I just took up golf seriously four months ago. I made quick progress, my instructor was very impressed, but my 10-year-old set of Ping knock-offs, which I bought for 50 dollars at a garage sale, needed replacement, and my instructor suggested that if I were serious about this game, I should invest in a top-line set of game improvement clubs. He mentioned the usual suspects: Ping, Callaway, Taylor Made.
While visiting a buddy in Arizona (a 6 handicapper), we went to the PGA store to be fit for clubs. The salesmen then brought out the appropriate Pings, the Callaways, the Taylor Made’s, which I suggested, and Adams, which I had never heard of. My buddy said they are famous for their hybrids but he has never swung their irons or woods. The salesman said that he never hears anything but positive comments about Adams clubs. I quickly narrowed the choices down to the Pings (G15's) and the Adams (a4's). When the salesman and my buddy asked me about how each felt, I said, honestly, that I could not tell a discernible difference, but I really liked how the 4 hybrid felt, so I learned toward the Adams. My buddy, being conservative and not wanting me to lose interest this great game because I was unhappy with my club choice, pushed the Pings (he plays Mizuno), but the salesman, to his credit, thought the Adams presented a much better value. I went back to California and thought about it.
To be perfectly honest, because everyone I knew pushed the Pings, from my buddy to my instructor, I would have bought the G15's, but the a7OS complete set represented a much better value.
What an awesome choice. The Speedline Fast10 driver might be a generation behind, but I love that club. My driver was once the most unreliable part of my game. Now it is as consistent (as consistent as a novice golfer can be) as the rest of my game. It is fast, light with a big sweet spot. My drives are consistently 200 to 220 yards.
Mind you, I am still learning, so I am still working on consistency, but I no longer worry too much about the things beginning golfers worry about, like getting the ball in the air, keeping it on the fairway, hitting the green on the fly. True, much of that comes with practice, but much also comes with the confidence I have with these clubs. Sure, I am still a duffer, and every so often I have to scream “fore, right”, but this becomes less and less. Now I can worry about distance and placement and putting.
The feedback and forgiveness are great. Super easy to hit, slight miss-hits are forgiven, and I know on contact where the ball is going and how far. My short game is solid. Putting I have to work on, but now that I am more or less comfortable with rest of my game, and can spend more time working on putting.
I use seven clubs 95% of the time, the Driver, the 4-Hybrid (essentially replaced my fairway woods, I get the ball in the air easier, but I’ll use the 3 wood when I need distance), the 7 hybrid, the 9 iron, sand and pitching wedges and the putter. Again, feedback, forgiveness and distance are excellent. These clubs look great. My only complain the cart bag. It is too light, so it makes for a top-heavy bag.
Before I bought these clubs, my best rounds at decent courses were in the low 90's. Last week I shot a true 87 at Oak Quarry. No mulligans, no conveniently deducting a shot here or there from the scorecard. It was the best time I have ever had on a golf course. Only one month earlier, breaking 90 on a tough course seemed like at least six months to a year away. That I shaved about 6 to 7 stokes off my game in one month without truly understanding how to putt, a huge factor has to be these clubs.
They say that once you find a brand you are comfortable with, you tend to stick with that brand. I love these clubs, and I will probably stick with Adams clubs for a long time.

I'm a once-a-week golfer. This the best set I have ever owned or used! These clubs are very easy to
use and have improved my overall game. I am very pleased with the price, quality & feel of this set. I plan to
use them for the foreseeable future.

I have been playing golf for 25 years. I am a 16.3 handicap, down from an 18.1 earlier this year. I bought them Sunday and played with them that morning. I literally shot my best round in 10 years (a 78). I would have gone lower if I would have known I would add 20-25 yards per club. My PW is normally my 115 yard club, now 135. I drove 20 yards over the green on a 165 yard par 3, with a 6 iron, over a 255 yard par 4 in 1 shot with a 3 hybrid. These clubs have opened up my whole game. My friend bought the same set the same day and shot an 84. We now call ourselves Mr. and Mrs. Adams. Couldn't be more happy!
