Adams A3 Irons Review

A3 Irons

Adams Idea a3 Irons

Maybe it’s time to embrace technology instead of resisting it?  Golf is all about hitting the club on the sweet spot with finesse AND power.  Although it helps to have a good swing, golf club technology can be your best friend – especially if your swing is a little lacking.

That’s where Adams Idea a3 irons come in.  This “combo set” of hybrids and irons puts technology to work for you.  The standard set includes 3-, 4- and 5-hybrids, transitional hollow-back 6- and 7-irons, and a cavity-back 8-iron, 9-iron and pitching wedge.  Here’s a little more detail about the three types of clubs in a set of Adams Idea a3 irons:

  • The three hybrids (3, 4 and 5) have a distinctive “boxer” design that delivers forgiveness without skimping on performance.  They’re extremely easy to hit and resistant to twisting on miss-hits, but they’re also long and accurate.
  • The set’s two hollow-back mid-irons (the 6 and 7) ensure that there’s a smooth transition between the hybrids and scoring clubs. They’re also easy to hit and have predictable distance gapping.
  • The three cavity-back short irons (8, 9 and PW) are designed to be forgiving but their shape appeals to golfers of all skill levels – even better players.

Average golfers appreciate these irons because they’re forgiving and easy to hit.  But better players like them too – they have game-improvement features but they also allow shot-shaping.

The soles of Adams Idea a3 irons are contoured for versatility:  their width and shape make it easier to hit the clubs from just about any type of lie.  A progressive offset helps keep your shots straight no matter which club in the set you’re hitting.

When I played them, I was impressed by their distance, accuracy and control.  A lot of golfers think Adams makes the best hybrids out there, and I expected that the hybrids in this set would be long and easy to hit.  They didn’t let me down.  The irons are what surprised me a little about the Adams Idea a3 irons.  I was expecting garden variety, traditional game-improvement irons, but they played more like “players irons” and let me work the ball.  They were very long (Adams strengthened the lofts, but a lot of club makers do that now) but very controllable and the distance gapping was consistent.

Recommended for average weekend players, but possibly not for beginners because of how the set’s traditional irons play.  Adams Idea a3 OS irons might be better for higher-handicap players.
