If you are shopping for a hybrid with exceptional forgiveness, want a model that is not draw biased or one that might be shank-proof then you have been seeking the all-new Acer XDS React hybrids. These fun-to-hit hybrids are available individually or as a complete full set all the way to a sand wedge for both right and left handed players. Now we got your attention, let’s tell you a little bit more about them.
Consistent set up at address
To help understand how to breed consistency into your game, the Acer XDS React boasts a constant face progression throughout the set. Face progression is simply a term for the distance between the centerline axis of the shaft and the leading edge of the head. This short video will go over it along with some of the other features.
In brief, the XDS React is a whole new design concept to encourage consistency. With most clubs on the market, you need to position the ball differently in the stance. For example, on a lower lofted club like #3 or 4 hybrids, the ball may be positioned closer to your front foot. As the loft increases, the ball position shifts begins to shift farther back until it is closer to the center of your stance at least for the wedges. For the vast majority of golfers who aren’t able to hone their swing from continuous practice remembering the correct ball placement is very hard to duplicate from one day to the next let alone one shot to the next.
By having a constant face progression throughout the set, even into the matching fairway woods, it is easier to establish a single ball position that makes it easier to set up to the ball at address.
Shank you very little
As you can see from the diagram as well, the leading edge of the head is forward of the leading edge of the hosel (part of club where shaft enters). This means that the head has onset or the opposition of offset like you would see in an iron. This positions the hosel back away from the face making it virtually impossible to (sorry to even say this) shank the ball. Another byproduct of the hosel being out of the way is this increases your effective hitting as you have the whole face to use. For those with a tendency to sh*&k the ball, you will be thanking the XDS React hybrids very much instead of cursing it.
No gimmicks here, rails really do work to help minimize surface contact with the ground which can cause decreased acceleration into the ball. In addition, the railed sole has a very high concentration of weight to make getting the ball airborne a snap.
Sized to please
When you need more forgiveness the Acer XDS React delivers. The #3 hybrid is larger like a 7 wood which it would replace distance-wise. Gradually the size from front-to-back decreases as the loft increases so they not only look the right size but give the proper amount of for forgiveness.
I have found that no one hybrid will satisfy every golfer because some golfers prefer certain sizes or appearance at address or they need a certain amount of offset to prevent pushing or fading the ball. The Acer XDS is truly a unique model with no peers in the golf industry. It is designed with forgiveness in mind due to their size and weight distribution, lack of any offset so it is not prone to pulling or hooking the ball plus offers a larger effective hitting area for added confidence. If you struggle with irons and the hybrids you have hit in the past just don’t seem to cut the mustard, try out at least one of the XDS React hybrids to see if they will improve that part of your game.
