What is second-generation VST? A slot within the slot. In the Fast 12 fairway woods, Adams uses slot-within-a-slot VST in both the crown and sole (just behind the clubface, as visible in the images above), and, the company says, this configuration leads to even more face compression than with the original VST.
The slot on the crown is also designed to flex more than the slot on the sole, which Adams says leads to a higher launch angle without any increase in spin.
The Adams Speedline Fast 12 fairway woods reach retail outlets on Jan. 26, 2012, with MSRPs of $249.99 per club. They have satin silver crowns with the Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue featuring Speed Coat Technology graphite shaft standard.
The woods come in 3+, 3 and 5 for right-handers and 3- and 5-woods for lefties. A draw-bias model - the Speedline Speedline Fast 12 Draw - is offered in 3 and 5 (RH/LH) plus 7 (RH only); and Women’s Speedline Fast 12 Fairway Woods come in 3 and 5 (RH/LH) plus 7-wood (RH only). adamsgolf.com
