NCG's test team review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the Adams Idea a12 hybrid...
WHAT WE THOUGHTJaW: Very good ball speed and a nice head shape – the slot definitely works. Good off the deck and off the tee. Not much more you can ask for.
DM: Lower lofted head looks brilliant – plenty of size and confidence that comes with it. The higher loft does not look amazing, but is easy to launch high.
MT: Really nice, particularly the 17˚. Very forgiving and a superb standard shaft.
JoW: This is excellent. I love the 17˚, which is a powerhouse and amazing off the tee. The higher lofts do their jobs well, too. The 24˚ in particular is superb off the deck and especially from a fluffy lie where it’s easy to dig the ball out.
