Acer X-series irons of the past years have been all about providing a specific model offering varying degrees of forgiveness for golfers of any skill level with a stylish design and yet an affordable price.  This year we have taken it up a notch by providing four distinctive irons in the all-new Acer XS iron series. If you are asking what makes these different from the popular Acer XF irons we currently offer, the answer is plenty.  Without further ado, let’s examine each of the four models and see who each is intended for.

 

Acer XS Standard Iron
Let’s start out with what will be the most popular of the four models. The Acer XS Standard Iron was created to fit the widest range of players from mid to higher handicappers.  First of all, the XS irons have a revamped face profile (not just a facelift) giving it a fresh new look compared to the previous Acer XF version.

Since this model is all about forgiveness, we concentrated a greater amount of weight toward the low, toe region of the cavity to create a high moment of inertia iron for maximum performance and a more solid feel at impact.

Acer XS Standard Iron Cutaway

The sole width is narrow for an iron in the game-improvement category. This enables it to be hit from a variety of lies you might encounter on the course.  It has a good amount of offset to help the average golfer square the face at impact, but not so much that it makes it hard to align at address.  This is just a great all-around club for the average player who is uncertain of what iron they need.

Acer XS Pro Iron
The XS Pro Iron model is a modified version of the standard model as the weighting principles are the same, but how we went about it varies slightly.  The blade length is shorter as a better player is less likely to miss as far out on the heel or toe as a less accomplished player. Therefore, it allows for a little more workability, but still far more forgiving than a muscle or forged cavity back that the “Pro” designation may allude to.

The Acer XS Pro’s could be used by some mid handicapped players too.  The reduced offset iron (45% compared to the XS standard) is preferred by better players who generally don’t need the assistance of added offset to help square the face at impact.  However, there are a number of average golfers who still need a forgiving head without the excessive offset found in most game-improvement heads.  Those of you who fall in that category will really appreciate the Acer XS Pro irons.

These also feature the narrow sole, but with a thinner topline and progressive center of gravity (become higher the more loft) to control ball flight.

Acer XS HT IronsAcer XS HT Irons
The Acer HT Irons or high trajectory irons are targeted more for mid to higher handicappers, slower swing players and those that have more of a sweeping-type swing or really anyone wanting an extremely forgiving head that will get the ball up in the air.

There are three things we did differently to the Acer XS HT irons versus the standard version even though they share the exact same blade length and offset.  For starters, the loft is 1º weaker (or higher lofted). By itself, that will not help much to increase the ball flight.  However, if you look at the toe profile diagram, you can see that the HT club is shallower to lower the center of gravity. Lastly, this model has 20% wider sole than our standard Acer XS model to shift the center of gravity back further, which also assists making the shaft bend more forward upon impact and create additional loft.  All these parameters work in harmony to make this one of (if not) the easiest to hit iron in our entire line product line. The perfect irons for those that struggle to get the ball up in the air!

Acer XS Forged Iron

Acer XS Forged Irons
The Acer XS Forged iron was designed for a smaller segment of the golfing population – the better ball strikers.  This is why I describe it as a player’s cavity.  These forged cavity back irons offer some game-improvement over a traditional muscleback or blade iron, but not nearly as forgiving as the XS Pro.

The Acer XS Forged iron is precision forged from soft carbon steel and then the entire back is CNC milled into the cavity shape you see including an additional step to create an undercut cavity. This is very similar the best forged iron of ours in recent history – the Dynacraft Prophet Tour CNC iron, but with a fuller cavity.
