Speedline F11 Drivers
The distance of aerodynamics meets easy-to-hit in the new, larger foot print of the fifth generation Speedline F11 driver. The addition of Velocity Slot Technology (three visible channels precisely located on the sole and crown to keep the airflow attached to the club head even longer) creates 35 percent less drag and increases club head speed, making the Speedline F11 driver faster than ever. The result is over six more yards of carry distance, confidence-inspiring shaping of an expanded hitting area and a higher moment of inertia (MOI) that creates higher ball speed and forgiveness, even on off-center hits. Other design improvements include a lower and deeper center of gravity that produces a higher launch angle with a lower spin rate.

“As the leader in aerodynamic technology in driver design, we are pleased to offer golfers of all abilities a club that delivers more distance yet remains extremely easy-to-hit,” said Chip Brewer, President and CEO of Adams Golf. “The addition of the Velocity Slot Technology to Speedline F11 has definitely created the fastest, longest and most forgiving driver on the market today.”

Speedline drivers have collected 20 tour wins since their introduction in January 2009.

Speedline F11 Fairway Woods
Innovation is taken to the next level with the application of Velocity Slot Technology to the Speedline F11 fairway woods, making them the highest performing and most forgiving fairway woods available. Offered in both stainless steel and titanium models, the Speedline F11 fairway woods feature a deep, visible channel on both the crown and sole that acts as a leaf spring to increase deflection and reduce stress on the face, thereby expanding the coefficient of restitution (COR) or spring-like effect for on-center and off-center shots. The result is a dramatically easy-to-hit fairway wood with a 21 percent improvement in forgiveness across the entire face, better ball speeds and up to 12 yards of increased distance. The unparalleled technology of the Speedline F11 fairway woods has already impressed several Adams Golf staff members, including Tom Watson and Ryan Moore, who immediately placed the club in their bags.

“Historically, fairway woods had relatively low COR values due to the fact that their head and face sizes had to remain smaller for playability purposes,” says Scott Burnett, Director of Advance Product Development for Adams Golf. “By applying Velocity Slot Technology to our Speedline F11 fairway woods, we’ve been able to expand the COR across the entire face without adversely impacting size or durability, thereby setting a new standard for performance and forgiveness in the category. This improvement is directly proportional to the impressive COR improvements that occurred in drivers in the mid-2000s as their head size increased.”

Models, Pricing and Shipping
The entire lineup of Speedline F11 products will ship to golf shops beginning February 1, 2011.

    I’ve never spent much time with Adams drivers and fariways. I have to say that I’m not a huge fan of the looks of these with the new VST. It just looks funny to me. But they always say never judge a book by it’s cover.

  2. JNolan says:

    Jeez what is there new Adams products every two weeks now? I’m all for new products but the Speedline 9064 just came out in 3 versions (adjustable, regular and lite) and now these.

    The 9064 claimed to add 15yds now these claim to add 6yds, is that 6yds longer than the Fast10 or 6yds on top of the 9064’s 15yds for a total of 21yds father than something? (what I don’t know)

    At some point too many new products from one manufacturer in one season starts to cause product/consumer confusion no?

    i just bought th 2011 f11 driver and like it very much who needs all those ajustable heads remember the phrase keep it simple stupid.

  5. Dan says:

    Bought the driver and 3 wood when they hit the stores a few weeks ago. The driver is loger and straighter than the Fast 10 I used to play and I have never hit a 3 wood so long and straight in my life!
    I play the “draw” version in both driver and 3 wood. the offset is not that noticeable but really works.
    Both are worth a try.

    Just bought the F11 Fwy at a demo day yesterday. Played with it today and going to kick my wife out of bed and sleep with it tonight. This is the best fwy wood I have every hit. I have been searching for a couple of years to find a 3 wood that I can hit high and straight. Guess what found it. Thank you Adams Golf.

    Love this new F11 product!
    Adams is becoming a major player in the golf industry. They have a tour staff that is continually winning, and product that is more innovative than most companies in the biz.
    I love THP but it’s disappointing that there isn’t more about Adams Golf.
    As Will Ferrell in anchorman would say: ” they are kinda a big deal”.
