The Adams Pro Hybrid does exactly what better players want their hybrids to do. First, it’s more forgiving than a long iron. While it’s far from the most forgiving hybrid on the market, you have much more leeway with this than you would with a 3-iron. Second, the Pro hybrid flights the ball slightly higher than a long iron. You will not be hitting moon balls with this club, the flight is medium-low, but it launches higher and more easily than comparably-lofted irons. Finally, it goes a little longer and is a little more consistent than a long iron. Most better players are not looking for their hybrid to replace their driver, they want consistent, repeatable distance. That’s exactly what the Adams Pro hybrid delivers. I found that it was about half a club longer than an iron of equal loft, but the big issue was the consistency: the Pro hybrid was always plus or minus 5 yards and never had the big 20-yards-short miss.
