Just saw this on Instagram this morning.  Digging the old school vibes with it, has that infomercial feel to it, anyone hit it yet or seen it in person?

It actually looks really easy to hit, and chances are they’ll sell a ton of these with the original infomercial sales method.    Adams died off years ago because all you people who are dumping

What's the point of even bringing the brand back is this is the crap that your are going to release? What a waste.

This isn’t worthy of a WRX discussion...they don’t offer an extra stiff shaft upon checkout.

Got excited when TM was teasing bringing Adams back.  This is not what I was expecting, more than a little disappointing.  "The Sole of Versatility," is brilliant marketing.

Bittersweet seeing that "Velocity Slot" prominently on there.  That tech was pretty much the sole (hah!) reason for TM buying Adams which led to Adams' demise (until now).  Source of both death and rebirth.

The informercial feel is a bit off-putting? But it makes sense that they don't want to cannibalize their own products, so this is priced to directly compete against other DTC products (Sub70, Hogan, etc). Will be interested to see the success of this club.

Such a bummer.  Adams made some unreal sticks that have more than stood the test of time still to today.

I'm guessing it's more of a play to the DTC / casual player crowd, not necessarily designed for the more savvy golf equipment person.  Probably have to be careful not to cannibalize from the TM side of things

Agreed. I was excited when I saw Adams fire up the IG machine. But this is quite the let down. I'd assume that most golfers that are still nostalgic about Adams would be looking for a product that wouldnt feel at home on an infomercial.

 

That being said, I totally understand that TM doesnt need to be competing with itself. They have been cranking out awesome fairway woods and decent hybrids for years. No need to muddy the market.

Yep, I still hold a bit of a grudge against TM for what they did to Adams.  As a brand, their target audience always seemed poorly defined.  Most of their irons were really for better players (blades and players cavity backs), but their hybrids and fairways were marketed mostly as "forgiving" clubs, not "players" clubs.  

 

That said, I bet that new Tight Lies fairway is probably a pretty good club for its intended audience.  I have a previous generation Tight Lies (with the velocity slot that is hidden from the top).  Even at 14*, it is really easy to hit high.  In fact, I struggled keeping it down, which is why it didn't last long in my bag.

 

So perhaps there is a place for a brand the produces forgiving clubs, and unashamedly markets to those players looking to make the game "easier," not to players who hope new clubs will make them "better."   Its a subtle distinction, but I think there a lot of weekend warriors that don't really don't think they are ever going to get better, and don't necessarily care.  But they still hope for a couple less terrible shots per round, and to win an occasional skin.  Hopefully, Adams ends up a little more respectable than the "as seen on TV" clubs.

HAHAHA! Exactly! All the people that constantly root through each others bags to see what you're gaming!

 

I love my Adams clubs. I have a backup bag with the CMBs, a Proto Gold, and an XTD Ti.

Ahhhhh haha, I was SO excited when I saw this thread title. The last iteration of Tight Lies fairways are still fantastic clubs. I'm not sure you can find an easier to launch 3-wood than those. 

 

But then I clicked the link. I'm not sure it's possible to look any cheesier than that. I feel like they decided to aim this thing squarely at the "bad at the internet old man" crowd. Holy crap.

Nobody knows. Well except for the geniuses here that will completely judge a piece of golf equipment (club, shaft, balls, etc.) without ever seeing it in person, actually trying it or only makes an assumption simply based on a stock picture. We should all be so blessed. :classic_wacko:

Other than the infomercial feel (and they about nailed that... really, 4 easy payments? Look if you're financing a $180 golf club you may want to reconsider...)

 

Anyway it looks like an Adams golf tight-lies golf club. I would almost be willing to try one because it just might work, and there's nothing wrong with that. I think it's a decent looking homage to the original clubs and if it is, in fact, a high launching, forgiving fairway wood, would it really be so bad?

Disappointing for sure but quite understandable from a business perspective. Targeting a different demographic. Its like lexus and toyota to some extent.

 

Based on website marketing, more like Lexus and Vespa?
