    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 Speeder 757 Speeder Evolution Tour Spec Stiff Flex
    Fairway: Cobra F6 Baffler set to 17.5* with Motore Speeder 8.3 Stiff/Aldila Tour Blue 85s set to 16.5*
    Hybrids: 19* Adams XTD Super Hybrid VTS 100s, 23* Adams Super 9031 S300
    Irons: 4 (Recoil 125 F4), 5-PW Ben Hoga PTx Pro DGTI S400
    Wedges: 48* bent to 49* Hogan TK wedge, RTX 4 52* bent to 53* Mid, and Mizuon S18 56* bent to 58*. All wedges have DGTI S400
    Putter: Odyssey O Works #7 or Kingston KP1 Carbon Oil Can Finish

    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...?

    According to Orwell, two plus two equals five.

    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.
