    Super LS is still great in the driver and hybrid lines. I do use an older Adams hybrid head when I use a hybrid for certain courses. I still don't think anyone has made better hybrids than Adams did 10 years ago.

    I play the following: Adams Super 9031 23* hybrid, Adams 19* XTD Super Hybrid, and an Adams Speedline Super LS 3 wood.

    The 19* and the 23* clubs have been in my bag the longest. I just can't find anything that can replace them. They will probably be in my bag until they break, and then I'll have to go online and find the same clubs to replace them.
    Driver: 9.5* M3 Attas Elements MK 7s
    Fairway: Cobra F6 Baffler set to 16* with Nventix Nunchuk
    Hybrids: 19* Adams XTD Super Hybrid Black Tie 95g S / 18.5* RBZ Stage 2 S300, 23* Adams Super 9031 S300
    Irons: 5-PW Fly Z+ DGTI S400
    Wedges: 50*& 54* TM Milled Grind Standard Bounce, 58* Mid RTX 4. All wedges have DGTI S400
    Putter: Kingston KP1 Carbon Oil Can Finish

    XTD Ti 3 hybrid and fairway wood, can be had for a song right now and are amazing off the tee and deck. I've been searching for a Speedline Classic or an Adams Launch Lab driver, but theres like nothing on ebay image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

    9015d just don't like the feel of the new drivers.

    bought a back up head on ebay for $25 lol

    I just built an 18 degree DHY. Bought the head on eBay and put a Tensi CK blue shaft in it. Only one round with it so far, but it's fantastic.

    I'm still playing a 2014 (?) Idea #2 hybrid. These are pretty rare....they didn't make many 2's in that model.

    Also play a 20* Idea Pro Mini.

    They made great stuff.

    Adams Super LS 19* - 3 hybrid with Kuro Kage 80 Stiff. Don't see it going anywhere for a while. Easy to hit, forgiving, and long.

    Still have my Fast12 LS in the bag

    That's the one Adams driver the last five or six years I have never hit. It's a shame because people seem to swear by it.

    Yeah, I have to agree with that statement. One of my biggest equipment regrets to this day was never getting the Fast 12 LS driver.

    Jumped on the MB2 train this year. I had read many great reviews on them over the years and I finally found out for myself. Pretty sweet set. Everyday set probably not but they will surprise you into thinking they could be.

    So you have four sets...?

    Just bought driver, 3 wood, 5 wood & 4 hybrids (already had one) Speedline/Super S, secondhand. Going to have them reshafted as they are all different.

    Not all will end up in the bag once I've had it done.
