While Adams has consistently been crushing it lately with their all-around lineup of clubs, for the past few years they’ve been well-known as the undisputed champion of hybrids. While the Adams marketing engine certainly hypes the hybrids, it’s for good reason – the hybrids are also being used extensively by players around the world and on all of the tours. All of the other manufacturers have a hard time standing up to Adams when it comes to matching hybrid performance.
The Super S hybrids are the new mass-market hybrids from Adams. They’ve introduced the Super S at an attractive price point and well within the reach of the the everyday golfer.
These new hybrids are offered with the signature Super S matte white crown and head graphics and they are all-around great looking hybrids. The Super S hybrid is not adjustable, but is offered in a variety of loft combinations including 15, 17, 19, 22, 25, and 28 degrees. The version tested for this review was the 3 Hybrid in a 19 degree loft.
Look & Feel
The Super S hybrid is a great looking hybrid. The matte white finish, Super S crown graphics, black face, and hints of red combine for a great looking club. While many golfers initially have an unsure reaction about the crown graphics, the questioning of the graphics has started to sizzle out.
For me, I think the crown graphics look great and although they serve as little more than decoration, they have been a welcome addition.
When it comes to the feel of the hybrid, there wasn’t a whole lot that felt worthy of pointing out. The feel was really good overall, but nothing stood out as either exceptional or lacking. Solid hits feel great, mis-hits feel a bit dead, and the club generally feels like you would expect a hybrid to feel.
When it comes to hybrids, chances are that given a choice of putting in manufacturer’s club in the bag – I’d go with Adams 9 out of 10 times. For the past few years I’ve noticed that I can simply trust the Adams hybrids and the Super S is no different.
I didn’t see any performance increase in either distance or dispersion than what I’ve seen from the Adams hybrids in my bag from last year. The look and feel is noticeably different while the performance is nearly identical to the Super hybrids (the steel version) from last year.
The Super S hybrids come stock with the Matrix Kujoh shaft which is a very nice default pairing and an great default shaft.
The introduction of the Super S gives Adams an updated look and feel to their mass-market hybrid options.
The updated look and consistent performance that everyone has come to expect from Adams makes the Super S a contender for the majority of golfers out there.
