Hireko Golf Rolls Out New Acer Mantara Hybrids Uniquely Designed for Accuracy and Forgiveness

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA, September 26, 2007 – Hireko Golf announced today the launch of its new Mantara Hybrids, an advanced stainless steel design that incorporates design elements from its best selling Acer Mantara XL and Acer XP Drivers.

The square profile moves the center of gravity rearward and creates a higher MOI. The increased perimeter weighting and high MOI yields greater stability and better trajectory control. Designed to replace traditional #3, 4 and 5-irons, these are large volume clubs for maximum forgiveness on off-center shots. The Acer Mantara hybrids will set up much like a fairway wood with a face forward feature and will have a neutral to straight ball flight, rather than many draw biased designs offered today.

“The new Acer Mantara Hybrids represent a design evolution for Hireko Golf,” states Rob Altomonte, VP of Marketing for Hireko. “The square profile, unique perimeter weighting and high MOI all combine for increased ball speed
off the face for greater distance and accuracy.”

The new Mantara Hybrids are available in right and left hand models: #3H (20 degrees), #4H (23 degrees) and #5H (26 degrees). Golfers can custom build a Acer Mantara Hybrid online starting at $30.19 each or purchase the component clubhead for $11.95 each at www.hirekogolf.com or by calling 800-367-8912.
