These are the ones Ernie is gaming in the Adams commercial....."cant believe an 8-iron goes 175 yards".....something like that.

I'm sorry but these irons are just plain UGLY!

Almost as ugly as these:

Had heard that a version of the one-off proto set of XTD irons that were made for Els were going to be brought to retail this fall. This must be what was being talked about.

Who gives a rats a** what they look like in the cavity. They look great at address and if they perform that's all that matters.

Couldn't care less about the cavity- I certainly wouldn't have to look at it while addressing a ball. I love the topline... but is it just me, or does the sole look abnormally thick for such a thin topline? It might just be the angles, but it appears that this iron might be shaped like a triangle if looked at from the profile. Especially the last picture. And, I really can't get this photo out of my head-

[attachment=2302205:IMG_5365.jpg]

If someone had only posted that photo and labeled it "Brand X's New Player's Cavity", this place would go bonkers for it.

I know this isn't an official product but I'm surprised they went with Tour vs. Pro since they have historical gone with the latter. Even their post TMaG acquisition lines (see 3 current hybrids/utility) use the Pro theme.

Either way these are fantastic. People need to realize it's ok to come out with something new AND different. The market has a place for a couple of these, with plenty of other traditional players clubs to choose from. Heck you could even get the CMBs if these are too different for you (only looks wise not at address). Not to mention when Adams comes out with something different it actually performs.

I'm looking for a new set. Would be interested if you could customize them and order a specific set: 5I-PW. In their last set, everything was either 3-PW or 4-PW.

I'm a huge fan of their hybrids and have a couple in the bag. Here's hoping that they perform like their hybrids.

I loved the performance of the normal XTDs but just couldn't get used to the dark finish and the thicker soles. These will definitely be getting a shot at beating out my DPCs. Plus I like the fact that they will have KBS Tours stock.

I thought Greg said he wasn't even sure if these were a one off or may come to retail at some point? Unless you're referring to the current XTD's, which come with some strange KBS Tour C-Taper Lite (or something like that). I'm sure that shaft has been discussed, but when I first saw it, it just came off like a made for Adams shaft that tried to fit every KBS brand on the label... just so more would find something familiar on an otherwise unique iron.

Spoke with the local rep last month and he said these are the same as what were made for Ernie. He said they were not forged, which is ok in my book as long as they look great and perform. Rep indicated a fall release. He says that the Adams staff has high expectations for this offering. Being an Adams fan, I'm excited to demo this club.

I actually asked Adams about the stock shafts directly during the Adams Q and A on Golfwrx a couple months back and got this reply in quotes below...Ernie was currently gaming the KBS Tour in his irons, so I assumed this to be the stock shaft in these.

[b]"Adams Golf (Justin Honea): [/b][color=#000000][size=4]Your welcome and thanks for the great feedback. We love hearing all the positive feedback. Without giving it away the XTD Tour iron will have the same shaft as what Ernie is gaming (opps, just gave it away) and the graphite option will be the Program Q 95 (blue color) aftermarket shaft.[/size][/color]
