Dec. 17, 2012 - For the first time, Adams Golf is introducing a new family of golf clubs - driver, fairway woods, hybrids and irons - under one name, simultaneously. That "family" is called Super S. At the same time, Adams' Super LS models are also arriving, although the Super LS includes woods and hybrids only at launch (no irons). Both families arrive at retail in late January 2013.

The difference? Aside from the fact that Super S includes irons and LS does not, the Super S clubs are more "mainstream" with lower costs. The Super LS woods and hybrids offer more tech in their multi-material construction and are a bit pricier. (Also note that Adams uses an all-caps - SUPER S and SUPER LS - spelling.) More info about all the Super S and Super LS clubs can be found at adamsgolf.com.

Adams Speedline Super S Driver

The Speedline Super S driver uses Adams' "Velocity Slot Technology" with a slot in the sole. It is cut deeper in the heel and toe areas, which, Adams says, enlarges the sweet spot and helps with distance and forgiveness. And the driver head includes aerodynamic refinements designed to boost distance performance through better swing speed.

The big talking point, however, is that the Speedline Super S driver removes loft from the buying decisions: They come standard - they are not offered in multiple lofts. That's because the driver's adjustability allows each clubhead to be adjusted by the golfer from 9.5 degrees to 11.5 degrees.

The stock shaft is the Matrix Radix S. Men's and women's models will be offered in both right- and left-handed, and the MSRP is $349.99.

Adams Speedline Super LS Driver

The Super LS driver also has the VST slot in the sole. But the LS driver does come in multiple lofts - 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 degrees for righties and 9.5 and 10.5 degrees for lefties. In addition, Adams' Fast Fit system makes the Super LS adjustable for face angle, length and swingweight.

The stock shaft is the Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage, and the MSRP is $449.99.
