Have Fun, Play Faster, Go Further with the Power Play Juggernaut Driver!

The New for 2014 Illegally Long Power Play Juggernaut Driver Has Titanic Power & Accuracy!

Power Play Juggernaut DriverHere is a little fun fact, only 1 out of every 5 golfers maintains a USGA handicap. Yet virtually all equipment companies design golf clubs to abide by the Rules of Golf for what amounts to only a minority of the golfing population.  Well that trend may be changing and Hireko will be offering a new driver that was intentionally designed to be non-conforming.

Now don’t get your tighty-whities in a bunch, this is only a single driver and we have a plethora of other golf club drivers to choose from. Remember, we weren’t the first company to make a non-conforming golf driver and we certainly won’t be the last. Hireko is introducing the Power Play Juggernaut driver for the 80% of golfers who…

  • Don’t maintain a handicap
  • Take a mulligan on the first hole
  • Roll the ball in the fairway
  • A putt is an automatic “gimmie” inside the leather
  • Play for the fun of it!

Power Play Juggernaut DriverLet’s face it golf is hard, even under pristine conditions that you see on TV.  I don’t know about you but I don’t have the luxury of beating balls year round and for hours at a time to play at the highest level.  I happen to play for the fun of it.  There is enough pressure in life that I just want to relax when I am out on the course and enjoy the company and surroundings.  I am sure most of our readers are in the same boat.

The Power Play Juggernaut was designed for the 4 out of 5 golfers that want to play better by driving the ball straighter and further – simple as that.  Every company will boast those claims with any new driver, but can they back it up? Due to all the equipment restrictions by golf’s governing body that is awfully hard to do.  But when you aren’t hamstrung by rules, you can create some pretty cool things.

Power Play Juggernaut DriverFirst, the Juggernaut is 12% larger (515cc) than the maximum allowable volume by the USGA. That is bigger, but not like seeing a watermelon on a stick. If you believe in the philosophy that bigger is better, then you will agree this allows it to be a more forgiving on off-center golf shots resulting into less time looking for errant balls and speeding up the play of the game.  Plus when you have more confidence, you can go after it a bit more and generate a little more distance knowing you have an inkling of an idea of where the ball is going.

Secondly, you will be able to generate a little more ball speed or distance from the tee because the coefficient of restitution (COR) or that spring-like effect of the ball coming off is hotter than allowable by the USGA.  We spared no expense and went to a more explosive beta titanium material for the face. Are you going to be driving the ball 50 yards more? No, as that would defy the laws of physics, but I can tell you that I have hit the longest drives at my home course with it.

Power Play Juggernaut HeadcoverOK, I can hear some of you mumbling “Are you cheating?”  It depends. If you don’t maintain a handicap, then the answer is no.  Mulligans and “gimmie” putts aren’t in the rule book nor are rolling the ball in your own fairway, but look at all of those golfers that do.  For those aging seniors who now play from the forward tees and still can’t reach the Par 4’s in regulation or beginners who need all the help from an accuracy standpoint so they don’t give up and quite the game before they ever get hooked. These are just a few reasons that the Juggernaut driver was intended for.

When you finally get hooked on golf, begin having fun once again or want to play more competitively, you have tons of choices of conforming drivers.  For now, there is an affordable driver available that is not only has a great look, sound and feel, but another option for the amateur golfer who wants to have fun and could give a rat’s behind about abiding by every single rule of golf.

Introducing the New for 2013 Acer XS Titanium Driver – The “Standard”

Acer XS Titanium Driver SoleLightweight Crown For Improved Weight Distribution

What might be the best driver in golf you have yet to hear about? Well today, I would like to introduce to you to the “standard” version of the new Acer XS driver series.  Each year, we strive and learn better and more efficient ways to produce our titanium golf drivers so you end up a product that will provide you or your customer with more performance.  The Acer XS series (short for excess) is no exception as it goes a step beyond our popular Acer XF drivers we have offered for the past two years.

Here’s how we did it.  First, we maintained the 460cc titanium driver volume but made the crown a little taller and the breadth a little wider to give it more of a full-bodied look.  What makes up difference in size comes in is the shorter heel-to-toe dimension allowing the head to rotate more rapidly around the hosel or shaft so it will be easier to square up at impact.

Acer XS Titanium Driver Proportions
You might think that a taller crown would normally raise the center of gravity of the golf clubhead, and you would be right. But we took a page from the Acer XF Leggera and shed all the weight possible from the crown to actually Acer XS Titanium Driver Crownlower the center of gravity.  This is the secret to help optimize launch and spin for even greater distance.  We even altered the face construction to attain a high ball velocity over a wider area of the face too.

The standard version of the Acer XS driver series is geared to fit as wide array of players as well as complementing the various Acer XS irons.  For example, the lowest lofted (9.5º) version is made with a 1º open face to guard against hooking the ball – that same player would most likely select the Acer XS Forged Iron or Acer XS Pro Iron.  The meat and potatoes of the group are the 10.5º and 12º lofts; each having a unique set of specifications to match the standard Acer XS Iron or Acer XS HT Irons (high trajectory) respectively. This is just part of the comprehensive Acer XS line that we will address in the coming weeks ahead.

What really make these shine are the sensory elements – or those you can see and hear.  The color really stands out. The copper-on-black color scheme was patterned off of the dog that my wife and I rescued and Jeff_dogavoided having to be put to sleep.  Its traditional shape will appeal to the most discerning eye, but maybe more importantly will be the muted sound.  All in all, the standard version of the Acer XS Titanium Driver is a well-rounded and affordable driver series that can be custom made and perform just as well as the more expensive brand name drivers.  Experience an Acer XS driver for yourself and I am sure you’ll have something to “woof” about too.

Hireko Wants You To Help Design Our Next Driver From The Ground Up! Part 5

Meet the new Acer XDS Driver

If you have been following on our Blog, you probably have wondered what is the status of the “Hireko Wants You to Help Design Our Next Driver from the Ground Up!” campaign.  This just happens to be one of 17 club head projects I am working on.  Some of which have gone as planned and are on schedule, one might be two years out from every making it to the market and one hit huge snags that it was scrapped and we had to start from ground zero again.  I wasn’t a happy camper that day.

Well this project has an official name – Acer XDS.  It will follow a set of matching super game-improvement irons slated to be available this fall. But at this moment we have our shape compiled from your requests.  The shape is much different from the original drawing, but the concept has remained intact; to provide the average golfer more distance and accuracy using some very sound design and fitting principles.

That shape was rendered into a CAD program so we could be very particular to ensure the weight, centers of gravity and MOI were all what we envisioned.

Once the CAD file was tweaked as much as we could tweak it, we had our rapid prototyping machine mill out an exact replica so we could have head in hand and examine it more closely.  So there is where this project stands today.

Over the next 48 hours our staff can make any decisions to change anything, if at all.  Right now the driver is only a bunch of little zeros and ones on a computer and changes are far less time consuming and cheaper than when we start the next phase creating the tooling and actually manufacturing hittable samples.

But we still need your input on a few more items on our laundry list.  One of which is the loft for the Thriver version – a heavier, more lofted 44” control driver.  Which of the following lofts would you like to see?

  • 13º
  • 13.5º
  • 14º
  • 15º
  • 16º
