Adams A3OS Review Hybrid Golf Set This new hybrid set from Adams Golf -- the A3OS -- is an updated version of the old A2OS. With some updated engineering, Adams has tried to make this their "easiest-to-hit" iron set, yet. The set starts out with the hybrids in numbers 3, 4, and 5 with the "Boxer" head design (as pictured below). This Boxer technology is essentially a shaping that creates a very high Moment-Of-Inertia or MOI. (In simple terms, MOI is a clubs resistance to twisting on off-center hits. The higher the MOI number, the more resistance.) From there, the set carries on with hollow-back irons for the 6, 7, and 8 irons. The set of eight total irons rounds out with a cavity back offering in the 9 iron and pitching wedge.

Targeted at the high handicapper, a mixed set of hybrids and irons is a great idea and there are several options now available on the market. In this set from Adams, the long irons are replaced with an easier-to-hit hybrid, and the shorter scoring clubs utilize available technology for optimum ease of use -- and ultimately greater pleasure in playing the game. Part of this technology is the progressive offset found in the 6, 7 and 8 irons, which translate to higher launch angles (and softer approaches). The 9 iron and PW are a bit more traditionally shaped and would appeal to most any player.

This set is available in right hand only but has two shaft options: either the Graffaloy ProLaunch Red 80-gram or the True Temper Players Lite Steel. Both are excellent choices, and this would simply be a personal preference of feel and confidence. Both shaft options are also available in your choice of Regular or Stiff flex.
