It Doesn’t Get Better Than This

The sizzling new Acer XF Irons bring the latest in technology to every type of player.

Available Friday, December 17, 2010!

The Acer XF iron represents our newest generation of game improvement irons to fit the mass majority of golfers today. I am going to boldly state that the Acer XF takes over where the current Acer XK iron left off. You are probably asking why change what was Golf Digest’s 2009 Best Value Iron in 2009? To be honest, my bosses were thinking the same thing.


Well a funny thing happened on the way to the drawing board – the USGA changed the rule about the shape of the groove that you might have heard a thing or two about. The easy thing would have been to retool the Acer XK model with new grooves and some sort of engraving or a different medallion to distinguish the new from the old version (yes, the USGA requires that). Well we just decided to take the more adventurous route and create a better version.

As the name implies, the XF stands for extra forgiving and here is the reason. We were actually able carve out a little more weight and reposition it lower and further back away from the face to make the penalty for miss-hitting the ball a thing of the past. We also did a few things to the appearance to make it more appealing. One was to bevel the topline so it was less chunky looking at address. Plus we made the rear flange a little manlier looking.

What didn’t change though were all the things that made the Acer XK our most popular iron including the versatility or comprehensive line that was able to fit golfers of all skill levels and regardless if they were right or left handed.

This week the standard RH version will be available with the reduced offset Pro and the HT (High Trajectory) models following soon along with maybe a hidden surprise that will come at a later time.

Acer XF Standard Irons

The standard XF is designed to fit the broadest range of golfers with ample offset to help the player square up the face at impact enabling the player to hit both straight and solid shots as well as instill confidence in their game. The non-glare topline has been beveled to provide a less chunky appearance at address.

Acer XF Pro Irons

The XF Pro is a more compact, reduced offset version for players who don’t struggle with pushing or fading the ball, but want some added forgiveness but not so much that can’t work the ball when the shot is called for.

Acer XF HT Irons

Lastly there is a higher launching, wider soled XF HT version with the same amount of offset and extra forgiveness as the standard model.

    i’d like to know the groove configuration [ shape ,depth, etc. ] on your new xf ht irons

  2. Dywane says:

    What is the difference between these and the Acer XK Ti-Ceptional Irons. I have had the Ti Irons and love them much better than the fusions I gave away.

  3. Jeff Summitt says:

    Terry:

    They are semi-U groove designed to meet all the 2010 USGA groove requirements.

  4. Jeff Summitt says:

    Dywane:

    The XK Ti-Ceptional irons incorporate a secondary lighter material (titanium) in the face for maximum perimeter weighting. The Acer XF is an all-stainless steel design with exceptional perimeter weighting, but not quite as much as the Ti-Ceptionals.

  5. Andrew says:

    Really (and I mean really) like the look of the Ti’s and the XF. I’ve been playing an set of XK Pros for the last couple of seasons and got my handicap down to 7 with them, so no complaints.

    Looking to change to a more forgiving set of irons. No point fighting technology is my view.

    Demoed the Ping G15’s which I really like – but not so keen on the price-tags.

    Between the Ti’s and the XF, which comes closer to the G15?

    Thanks

  6. Ray F. says:

    I play all my iron sets with 2-3 degrees upright lie. Is this new stainless steel XF Pro model going to have a cast version or would they need to be bent? Stainless cast can be hard to bend and if not done right can tend to make a right hander pull the shot a little left. Thanks for your time.

  7. Jeff Summitt says:

    Andrew:

    The G15’s are an-all stainless steel game-improvement irons with ample offset. The standard XF would fall into that same classification.

  8. Jeff Summitt says:

    Ray:

    The XF Pro’s will be cast, but they will be able to be bent safely 2 degrees upright from their stated specifications.

  9. Erich says:

    What is the offset data and blade length for the new XFs? Is it the same as the XKs?

  10. Andrew says:

    Jeff

    Many thanks. I kind of figured the XF’s would be the way to go (on specs alone that is). I’ve been on my best behavior all year so maybe Santa will have some goodies for me…

    A set of standard XF’s with the new Apollo Stepless in Red and some Karakal red/black grips would, I think, be just what the Doctor ordered.

    Assuming the Red will play to the same specs as the standard Stepless. Is that correct?

    Thanks

  11. Jeff Summitt says:

    Erich:

    Most of the specs can be found here: http://info.hirekogolf.com/acer/xf/xf-irons/. The blade length with be within a mm of the XK.

  12. Jeff Summitt says:

    Andrew:

    The new colored steel shafts will be nearly the same specs as the Stepless except the weight will be @ 3g heavier due to the finish and the S-flex tip trimming has been altered to make it play like a stiff flex rather than a firm.

  13. Andrew says:

    Jeff

    Many thanks.
    Looks like a plan to me.

  14. Dick says:

    when do you expect the ef pro’s to hit the web site?

  15. Jeff Summitt says:

    Dick:

    Probably not until after the 1st of the year. The RH version won’t be in stock until the middle of January at the earliest.

  16. David Mac says:

    HI, Jeff,

    I’m already lusting after a set of XF Pros. Would you acre to drop a hint about the special surprise that may or may not coming- I’d have to miss out

  17. Jeff Summitt says:

    David:

    I can’t quite let the cat out of the bag yet as it may be three months away before reality.

  18. bret says:

    Anyy chance of getting photos of the XF Pros in the address position?

  19. Frank R says:

    In the past I bought PC3 irons because I wanted to build an upright set of clubs (5 degrees). In looking at my girlfriend’s dimensions, I think she could really use flat clubs (-3.5 degrees). In the past you have said you did not want to make irons at +-3 degrees because you would need three molds. It occurred to me that you could handle the entire range from +5 to -3.5 by making two heads, one at +3 and one at -1.5, with +-2 degrees bend potential. These heads could then be bent for anything in the range except between +.5 and +1 degrees, only a half degree apart,

  20. Jeff Summitt says:

    Frank:

    The problem is the majority of clubs are sold as “standard”. In your case, anyone who wanted standard lie would be forced to pay additionally charge just to have a normal specification. It would doom the sales for the iron from the start.
