PLANO, TEXAS, June 17, 2009 – Marking the next generation of breakthrough aerodynamic design, Adams Golf (NasdaqCM:ADGF) is pleased to announce their newest groundbreaking lineup of products: Speedline 9032LS drivers and Speedline 9032Ti fairway woods. The drivers, now with 10 percent lower spin, are designed to create less drag and airflow turbulence, thereby increasing club head speed and distance. The hybrid-fairway woods continue to redefine the category by using titanium construction to guarantee 10 more yards in distance.
As in the original Speedline series, the patent-pending aerodynamic shaping of the next-generation Speedline 9032LS driver creates less drag and airflow turbulence, resulting in an impressive three to four M.P.H. faster club head speed and three to nine yards more distance. Design improvements to the 9032LS include a 17.3 percent larger face area for more forgiveness and heel and toe scoops that are one and a half times bigger than the original Speedline driver for better airflow attachment. The new features optimize launch conditions with 10 percent lower spin off the club face, thereby generating even more distance. Coinciding with the launch of the 9032LS driver, the new Aldila VooDoo NV graphite shafts with Score Technology will make their first appearance in the retail market with the Adams Golf Speedline 9032 series.
“Consumers and tour pros alike told us over and over how impressed they were with the aerodynamic technology of the original Speedline driver,” said Chip Brewer, President and CEO. “Now that we have advanced the ground-breaking design even further to deliver less spin, the 9032LS is poised to take their games to the next level.”
Speedline drivers have collected six tour wins since their introduction and the 9032LS model is already in the bags of several tour players, including Adams Golf staff members Aaron Baddeley and Gary Woodland, currently ranked second in driving distance on the PGA Tour.
Speedline Hybrid-Fairway Woods
The exceptional design features of the Speedline 9032Ti hybrid-fairway woods have resulted in the longest-hitting fairway wood ever developed by Adams Golf. These new woods have a center of gravity that is 22 percent lower, a crown that is 25 percent thinner and a titanium body that is 40 percent lighter than conventional fairway woods. This advanced weighting system is highlighted by two 40 gram tungsten sole inserts and a weight port that makes the Speedline 9032Ti extremely long off the tee and easy-to-hit from the fairway. In addition, these fairway woods are designed with an extremely high CT face to deliver the fastest ball speed of any fairway wood designed by Adams Golf. The unparalleled technology of the Speedline 9032Ti woods is so advanced that they come with a guarantee of an additional ten yards over conventional fairway woods for every golfer.
“This advanced fairway wood design came about after months of testing with the Tour pros,” says Tim Reed, Vice President of Research and Development. “There was no disputing the faster ball speed and increased distance they saw when they put it into play. With the launch of the Speedline 9032Ti, everyday golfers will now be able to experience the longest and most versatile fairway wood we have ever designed.”
