than the F11, I didn’t hit them. Now Adams Golf is coming with the Speedline Fast 12 fairway wood featuring the second generation of Velocity Slot Technology (VST).  The second generation, the company says, includes a ‘slot within a slot’ on the crown and sole of the club for even more ball speed and better launch conditions.

The slot within a slot, according to Adams Golf, allows the clubface to compress more, thus delivering higher ball speed plus higher launch angle for longer carry distance and total distance.

“By placing a slot within the slot, we were able to create a thinner and more flexible structure,” said Tim Reed, Vice President of Research and Development for Adams Golf.  “This creates an even hotter face than we had in the first generation of VST.  We also have been able to improve launch conditions even more by designing the top slot to flex more than the sole to increase launch angle without increasing spin.”

Adams Golf is the only manufacturer to incorporate slots in the crown and the sole. The F12 fairway woods will be available Jan. 26 and carry a suggested retail price of $249.99 each.
