The New Shape of Hybrid Technology Arrives Mid-February
Most hybrid profiles continue the same profile throughout the set. To gain maximum effectiveness, however, the long irons should be wider soled for maximum forgiveness, and the short irons should be scalloped for effective shortgame play.
Part hollow-bodied iron, part hybrid, the Dynacraft Avatar XMOI is our first hybrid set to take on a truly progressive appearance throughout the set. For the weekend warrior who wants to improve their game this set perfectly integrates all the necessary tools to help them achieve that goal.
The #3 and 4 irons have a wider footprint sporting an increased breadth and shallow face. This positions the center of gravity much lower and more rearward within the design to give less skilled players added confidence and the ability to easily get the ball airborne and also increase solidness of contact.
The mid-irons progressively become narrower (as less game improvement is required) and bridge the gap between a conventional iron appearance. The scoring clubs starting with the #8 look traditional at address. The additionalloft beautifully hides the hollow-body but still helps to increase the moment of inertia. The rounded toplines provide plenty of face area and raise the center of gravity enough to control the trajectory. The inclusion of three wedges provide for better course management by eliminating distance gaps.

The Acer XK series will be our most versatile line to date allowing true customfitting.
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 hybrids are based on most popular hybrid platform in our line, but we added a few new design elements to further improve upon the performance.
There are two hidden elements which enhance the design so you play better. The Acer XK hybrids feature our exclusive Variable Crown Technology (VCT). The crowns are cast as little as 0.5mm thick (that’s equivalent to 5 sheets of paper) allowing all the unwanted weight to be repositioned deep within the head.
Next, a variable face thickness was selected. This is where the wall thickness around the perimeter of the face is much thinner than the center to create a more re-active face. This helps to provide a very crisp sound at impact that may only be experienced in higher end products on the market.
Assembly lengths were selected to be direct replacements for the same numbered and lofted long irons to provide easy to predict yardages. These clubs can be matched with hybrid-specific shafts or any 0.370” parallel tip iron shaft. Combining the internal weighting, wider base and high moment of inertia will make these by far more forgiving than a traditional iron.
The Acer XK hybrids will be available in both right and left-handed in #3 (19°), #4 (22°) and #5 (25°) options. If you are serious about your game, then these can be a vital step in helping you lower your score and achieve your goals for the golfing season.
As a new year starts, I predict plenty of change for the following year and I am not just talking about the political landscape. I am sure a lot of people would like to put a fork in 2008 as few would have predicted the severity and swiftness of the economic meltdown toward the latter part of the year. But don’t worry! People will continue to play golf. Albeit they might play less golf (rounds) or take more trips to their local driving range to appease their golfing fix until things get better.
Love him or hate him, fellow golfers, golf publications and golf analysts on TV will be once again happy to see a healthy Tiger roaming the course again (maybe not his caddy though if your last name is Mickelson). Between stimulating the economy, commanding two wars and shooting hoops on the hard court, our newly elected president might play more golf in office (and left-handed to boot) than the one getting ready to Continue reading “2009 Golf Predictions: A Birdie or Bogey?” »
