Adams Golf on Oct. 1 will unveil the fifth generation of its Slot Technology in its new Tight Lies fairway woods and hybrids. In contrast to previous models designed with a sole slot and a crown slot for maximum performance, the company said these 2015 products are enhanced by a new Ghost Slot Technology that which masks the crown slot to create a clean look at address.

The Ghost Slot Technology, according to Adams Golf, is a new crown slot that is nearly invisible and features a refined “barbell” cut-thru slot design, which reduces stress on the face while creating even faster ball speeds and higher launch than previous slot iterations.
The new Tight Lies fairway woods retain Adams Golf’s signature “upside-down head shape” and tri-sole. , which help separate it from other fairway woods. The features are being used to create the first ever Tight Lies hybrid. Adams Golf said the upside down shaping and the low-profile design produces a lower center of gravity (CG) and higher launch.
