Hireko Golf Announces New for 2013 Acer XS Iron Series

From beginner to professional and everything in-between, the Acer XS Iron Series provides game improvement where it is needed most

City of Industry, California - Hireko Golf, one of the golf industry's most complete sources for golf clubs, components, clubmaking tools, supplies, and technical knowledge announced today the arrival of their new for 2013 Acer XS Iron Series. The Acer XS Irons are engineered to provide a specific model offering varying degrees of forgiveness for golfers of any skill level with a stylish design and yet an affordable price.

Acer XS HT (High Trajectory) Irons
The Acer XS HT Irons are targeted more for mid to higher handicappers, slower swing players and those that have more of a sweeping-type swing. A 20% wider sole than our standard Acer XS model, additional measures from a lower profile, increased loft and deeper center of gravity enables the ball to get up in the air quickly from virtually any lie with maximum forgiveness. The loft on the Acer XS HT Irons are 1º weaker (or higher lofted). By itself, that will not help much to increase the ball flight. However, the HT club is shallower to lower the center of gravity. The Acer XS HT Irons are also 20% wider sole than the 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 the Hireko product line. The Acer XS HT Irons can be purchased online for $24.95 each at

Acer XS Standard Irons
The Acer XS Standard Iron was created to fit the widest range of players from mid to higher handicappers. From the non-glare topline to the moderate offset, the Acer XS Standard Irons allow players to hit both solid and straighter shots for the ultimate confidence in their game. Since this model is all about forgiveness, Hireko 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. The sole width is narrow for an iron in the game-improvement category. This enables it to be hit from a variety of lies one 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. The Acer XS Standard Irons can be purchased online for $24.95 each at

Acer XS Pro Irons
The Acer XS Pro model strikes a balance between some workability while still retaining game-improvement qualities. The Acer XS Pro Irons features a reduced offset, more compact blade length, narrow sole and thinner topline. 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, the Acer XS Pro Irons allow for 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. The Acer XS Pro Irons can be purchased online for $24.95 each at
