You must have done something to really piss someone off Chris! Why is this club not selling? Its a great club from what I hear, god if it was a lower loft I'd buy it myself just to end the mans misery!

This club is awesome, I have the 3 and the 5. I was a 'hybrid hater' and now I love them...the 4 would be perfect for a 1,2,3 iron replacement...seriously can someone just buy it so they can see how good these clubs are? BUY IT

So Live4 it would be a good option instead of a fairway wood?

definitely Walrus...probably a 5 wood replacement, in fact you could probably toss out the 5 wood and 2 or 3 iron and this club would do the job...easy to hit 100% and 75% or 50%

For f&*k sake - why has noone bought this club? It is probably the best hybrid ever made and for those right handers out there, this is a great "go to club". I have Adams Pro hybrids (1 (16), 3 (20), and 4 (23)) and they are the only clubs I have ever hit that actually make you gasp in amazement when you hit them well. I am guessing that a lot of players only want one hybrid and would prefer a stronger loft, but the 4 (23) is very useful out of shitty lies or when you are laying up becuase you're scared you'll pull or cut a longer one. There are a couple of holes on my course that have jinxed my off the tee and I am hitting my Adams Pro 23 off the deck from the tee and it's working a treat. Put poor Chris out of his misery and do yourself a favour. (No - I am not emplyed by AdamsGolf but cannot speak highly enough about these hybrids. Why do you think they are the number 1 hybrid on tour?) Good enough for Furyk, Kim etc, good enough for you and me.

Walrus, even you will be converted when you hit one of these. ;-)

LOL.....I'm no opposed to hybrids, just didnt enjoy the ones I had....I'm meant to be weighing up my options over the next few months for 'a club' to fill the gap from driver to 3 iron....my 3 iron is 21 deg and 4 iron is 24 deg, so if it was a bit lower I might go for it.

Yeah....but the 4 hybrid is really more like a 3 iron distance wise. You have played Shorty haven't you? I hit my Adams 4 hybrid onto the 15th green twice in a row last week. And that is a 3 wood for most guys and a 3 or 4 iron for longer hitters. You know the fairway bunkers on the 8th? Off the deck I knocked it just short of those the other day - there is no way I could do that with a 4 iron.

Yes I've played Shorty a few times and can recall the 15th So if I'm looking for a wood or hybrid to fill the gap you would say this would be a good option?

The way I see it, that gap can be pretty big if you can't hit fairway woods or long irons consistently. And--very few weekend players can. The Admas Pro 4 hybrid is a club that you will use anywhere from 170 metres out to over 200 if you are a reasonable ball striker, depending on wind. If you are going through a rough patch with the driver, you can use it off the tee as long as you don't have a headwind because it will balloon - that's why it's good to have a lower lofted one or. I think my 16 degree (1 iron) one goes as far as a 3 wood.

I hit my 4i very well, consistently. But the 3i is far less gauranteed. I want to master it and then see what club I need to fill the gap from driver to 3i! I guess this hybrid is an easier option than struggling with the 3i!
