Ever since the Acer XF Leggera became available to the public and we got an immediate indication it was going to be a huge seller. That’s when we began working on an affordable, super lightweight shaft that could be matched with it. The name is a mouthful, but states exactly what the shaft is. Leggera translated from Italian to English means “light” so we are talking about a shaft in the super lightweight category (50g) and the kicker is this shaft will be in the sub-$20 category.
You might be skeptical that a shaft this inexpensive will be any good, but remember house brand shafts can’t demand anywhere near the retail prices as the branded shafts because there is no advertising budget to justify it. Secondly, you cannot make a shaft this light without using higher modulus or specialized materials in order to achieve the strength and durability so you are getting a quality product.
The Acer Superleggera Shaft is available in four flexes (L, A, R and S) and the colors were picked to match the Acer Leggera driver head. But the neutral black/pearl white/black color scheme could be used for any driver. The raw length is 45” long and the beauty of this length is that it may not require any trimming at all to achieve a super light (270g) / super long (47”) driver for maximum speed and distance.
Here is a matrix to show you approximately what the swingweight and overall weight will be at various lengths using standard weight and Winn Lite grips as well as standard weight (200g) and the Acer Leggera (190g) driver heads. Please note that Hireko’s recommended length for the Acer XF Leggera driver is 46” with a mid 60g shaft and with a standard weight head (200g) is 45” allowing shafts this light to be assembled as much as 1” longer than standard and maintain normal swingweights.
The DSFI ranges are as follows:
The Acer Superleggera is mid launching shaft with a stable tip section. It joins the growing number of products in the ultra lightweight category that Hireko carries from the likes of Aldila, Apollo, Grafalloy, Graphite Design, SK Fiber and UST. If your goal is more speed and distance, the Acer Superleggera is yet another option to choose from.
