|Adams V3 Hybrid Review|
|Fairways/hybrids - Adams|
Thanks for taking the time to read my reviews, as I hope I can give you some insight and assistance on you future possible purchase of these clubs. Just for some background information so that you know what kind of golfer is testing these, here is my profile- I am 6 feet tall, 250 lbs; I have a 110 MPH club speed, and I have a steep downswing towards impact. I play blades for my own personal set, and I am a 5 handicap. I play standard loft, lie and length, with x-stiff shafts in all of my clubs. I am now using a Levitee Glove, and if you haven’t tried one of these then you re literally leaving easy strokes and consistency out of your game. So without further adieu, here are my thoughts on the Adams V3 Hybrid.
Looks- When I first bought this club, I loved everything about it. The matte black finish with gold accents on the sole is awesome, and the slick black crown is an appealing club to look at. For a hybrid, I felt that the head on the Adams V3 was a bit large, but it wasn’t large enough to deter me from buying the club. The squared toe was something I wasn’t used to, but it seemed different so I wanted to try it. Overall, I would give the looks of the Adams V3 Hybrid a 8/10 rating for looks.
Feel/Playability- After swinging a few times in the hitting bay, The Adams V3 hybrid had to come home with me. I went out and tested it on the range and found that Adams had put everything I could ask for into this club. The V3 was so easy to hit, I honestly felt like it should have been illegal. The only part I did not like about the club was the Mitsubishi Bassara shaft that was in it. I felt like it was a bit unstable for my game. I was able to hit solid shots on either side of the face, and still get a good enough shot that I could be happy with. I would rate the feel and playability of the Adams V3 Hybrid at an 8/10/
Performance- When I buy hybrids, I need them to be long, and I need the option of hitting shaped shots. With the Adams V3 Hybrid, I got both of my wishes granted. It was long enough that it replaced my 3 wood! The squared toe seemed to help keep shots on line when I would have a mishit which worked out perfectly for me. The head has a nice weighting in it and hitting out of long grass, off the tee, and off the deck all seemed to come easy with the V3 hybrid. I would rate the performance of this club at a 9/10.
Overall final Grade- After bagging the Adams V3 Hybrid, It earned a spot in my bag for quite some time. I was getting excellent distance with it, and the forgiveness on off the face shot was also great. I would recommend this hybrid to any handicap out there, as Adams hybrids are super easy to hit. The only reason that I am not currently bagging the V3 is because I jumped into the A12 Pro for a smaller club head. Overall, I would rate the Adams V3 Hybrid at an A-.
