Adams Golf debuts ghost slot technology

2014 09 Tight Lies Ti Fwy Sole


Adams Golf has, today, announced its new Tight Lies fairway woods and hybrid featuring the company’s fifth generation of its award-winning slot technology, ghost slot.


In contrast to previous models which were designed with both a sole slot and a crown slot, the new releases contain ghost slot technology. This attempts to masks the crown slot to create a clean look at address.

The new ghost slot crown is nearly invisible and features a ‘barbell’ cut-thru slot design that reduces stress on the face while creating faster ball speeds and a higher launch.

As well as ghost slot technology, the new Tight Lies releases upside down head shape and tri-sole, which help separate it from other fairway woods. These hallmark features have been used to create the first ever Tight Lies hybrid.

The upside down shaping and low-profile design which produce a lower CG and higher launch, used in a Tight Lies fairway wood, are now being put to use in a hybrid. The hybrid has been created to try and create a club which is playable from all lies without sacrificing the classic look.

The new Tight Lies Titanium has been created for golfers of all abilities, including PGA Tour stars. It tries to provide a club that’s easy to hit while remaining uncompromising on distance, for a blend of playability and performance.

Another new addition to the Tight Lies family is the titanium fairway wood, featuring a titanium face and crown with a stainless steel sole. The new release also boasts the lowest CG ever in an Adams fairway wood.

By using a titanium construction and the new ghost slot technology, Adams has created a fairway wood that reaches the USGA’s limit on spring-like effect. The results are a fairway wood with the playability of Tight Lies, with the power to rival other woods on the market.

The Tight Lies fairway wood is available in lofts of 14°, 16°, 19° and 22°. There will not be a left-handed 22° model.

Tight Lies titanium are to be made available in lofts of 13.5°, 15° and 18°, with the 13.5° model being the left-handed exception.

Available in lofts 17°, 19°, 22°, 25° and 28, the Tight Lies hybrid won’t contain 17°, 25° or 28° hybrids in left-handed models.
