Our newest clubhead arrivals will be the exciting Acer XK drivers, fairways and hybrids to complement the already popular XK irons that debuted in September. The Acer XK series will be our most versatile line to date allowing true custom fitting. The driver series has many game improvement features to provide not only maximum distance, but accuracy and trajectory control.
The first thing you will notice will be the triangular shape producing a unique appearance at address which is by design. The triangular shape pushes center of gravity deeper or further rearward and will be our broadest driver (117mm) to date. This promotes a higher moment of inertia than a traditional shaped driver for increased stability to help you find more fairways off of the tee. Golfers will have had no problems with the appearance at address.
The Acer XK series is available in a multitude of lofts to fit high ball hitters, low ball hitters and everything in-between. We could have easily named the drivers like the irons, but we didn’t. While the 9.5° may be better suited to the player using the Acer XK Pro iron or the 10.5° for the standard XK iron, 12° driver for the HT iron and 14° for the ladies HT iron, select the loft one requires based upon on their individual trajectory. Don’t always assume that a player with a high clubhead speed will hit a high ball or someone with a slower swing possesses a low ball flight. This is the reason why this is such a versatile line – it is your choice.
But it is the things you can’t see, which are the added benefits in this driver series. We focused on the face technology by offering a variable face thickness, cup-face design. What you say? Instead of a consistently thick face plate used in most conventional titanium drivers today, we went the more expensive and exotic route.
First, the cup-face moves the welds away from the corners of the head to provide a thinner, more active face to maximize ball speed on the off-center shots. Next, the variable face thickness further reduces the wall thickness around the perimeter of the impact area so the entire club face becomes one gigantic sweet spot. Now on off-center or miss hits the ball will be sent directly down the fairway like you perfectly struck the ball in the center of the face.
If you are serious about your game, the Acer XK driver series may be the answer to lower scores. Plus, this is only the half of it and you will see more Acer XK options in the near future.
