Hireko Golf Unveils New Acer XK Hybrids
Featuring Variable Face Thickness For Increased Trampoline Effect
CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA - February 10, 2009 - Hireko Golf announced today the arrival of its newest scoring weapon the Acer XK Hybrid. The Acer XK Hybrids are based on Hireko’s most popular hybrid platform but with new design elements to further improve performance.
“First, we incorporated a variable face thickness to reduce the perimeter area of the impact area so the entire club face could be more active,” states Technical Director Jeff Summitt. This is where the wall thickness around the perimeter of the face is much thinner than the center to create a more re-active face. The variable face thickness increases the area of forgiveness over a larger portion of the face. It also produces a very crisp sound at impact that may only be experienced in higher end products on the market.
“Secondly, the crowns were constructed with our exclusive VCT (variable crown technology) that measure as little as 0.5mm thick. All the unwanted weight normally reserved for the crown was repositioned deep within the head for added stability, feel and added trajectory to hold greens better.”
The length and lofts of the new Acer XK Hybrids were selected to be exact replacements for the same numbered long irons in terms of yardage.
The Acer XK hybrids are available in both right and left-handed in #3 (19°), #4 (22°) and #5 (25°) options. They come with free contour hybrid headcovers and are available custom assembled for $44.95 each at HirekoGolf.com.
