    Pretty much stock nothing. They have been thru a few "adjustments"

    Stock RIP Tour 115 in regular flex wasn't the best fit. Pulled and

    soft stepped once, better ... but that was abut the same time that

    The Recoil 95 Prototype was released to the public .Much better.

    Also took the time to do a blue print build. Adjusting head weights

    and doing a "Poor man's moi" ascending Swingweight, 1/2" overlength, loft/lie - stronger/more upright....etc....etc.



    Edit: Nothing in any of my.bags is stock. Rarely does a stock club

    last more than 3 swings before I tear.it down, and rebuild , trying

    to make it better....Golf, the never ending pursuit of perfection..

    I have a set with R-flex KBS Tour shafts and they are great feeling irons. I don't have them in my bag at the moment but they are in the backup rotation.

    I play with a guy who bought his when they first came out and he just changed them so he must have had them for 4 years or so. Personally my favorite Adams iron was the CMB. Super solid, great looking. I found the XTD to be a little clicky. But they are still very solid.

    Okay oh Prophetic One!!!!! Played with the Adams XTD FORGED.......as stated above, I've been really close in my scoring .....Iron play has been the Achilles heel to my game. Scores have inflated to 79-83 range rather than the 72-77 on normal courses.



    Without a warm-up due to mats(HATE MATS) we were on the course and I promptly missed my 1st green......rut row......8 holes like later , I finished front nine one under hitting the final 8 greens!!!



    Not as good on back but 3 over with 5 greens and one bad drive costing me double but much happier with 73 2 over !!



    And yes Chris, you turned me on to these fine machines.....all credit due!!!

    Late to the party but I purchased a set today. XTD Forged 3-PW. They have KBS C-Taper but no shaft bands so I have no clue what flex they are. From waggle test and hitting on the range, I believe they are stiff. Anyway to confirm this? Etching under one of the grips???



    I got to hit them at the range, flex feels similar to my z785 with modus 120s.



    I really like these and loving the long irons. Look great at address and look like they have a really nice ball flight (dark so hard to judge). Couldnt see where they landed. Looking forward to playing them Saturday if weather is nice.



    They dont feel as nice as my z785 but when you hit sweet spot, they have a good forged feel. No complaints. Might be a contender and knock z785 out of my bag lol

    Bought my tour issue set in the last 3 weeks with Recoil Prototype 125 F5. I think these are fantastic. I know what you mean about the feel, but it's really really close to a one piece forged. Distance is good considering the lofts. I thought something was wrong when the Adams 7i couldn't compete with my previous 7i, but then realised that my previous 7i was 1* weaker than the Adams 6i!

    Played 12 today and playing 18 tomorrow. So far so good.
