hybrid irons are built with ultra thin faces, perimeter weighting and low center
of gravity's throughout the set. Adams is the only manufacturer to combine three different technologies in a set of hybrid/irons. They hold the patent. Hybrids. Hybrid/Irons. Irons. Ideal for those seeking more consistency and forgiveness.
In fact, it's the low center of gravity, particularly in the pure hybrid design of the #4, #5 and #6 that makes these clubs more effective than conventional irons at getting the ball up and out of the rough.
The leading edge of a hybrid is just like an iron and just as effective at cutting through the rough while the wider sole allows for a lower center of gravity further from the face. The combination produces a higher launch than a conventional iron. Without the mass of a hybrid, in higher grass the hosel of a conventional iron is more likely to turn over at impact, resulting in a lower and off line or less accurate shot (unless swung by a skillful and powerful hand.)
