Lightweight Crown For Improved Weight Distribution
Each year Hireko Golf strives to create the finest titanium golf drivers so you end up a product that will provide you or your customer with more performance. The Acer XS Driver series (short for excess) is no exception as it goes a step beyond Hireko's popular Acer XF drivers 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.
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. 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.

- I have bought a few clubs so far and have been extremely pleased. I am a lefty who does not have a problem getting the ball in the air with a driver and have been looking for a driver with a stronger loft (8.5-9.5). Are there any plans to make LH drivers with 9.5d lofts, or do you take special orders at all to have one specifically made?
Unfortunately we cannot make special models and only make one or even a handful as tooling is required and there is a certain minimum order to make it worthwhile for the foundry to even want to start production. That is why we are relatively conservative on LH products nowadays. One thing to understand about our lofts on our drivers; they are the stated loft. Compare that to many name brand drivers that are stamped or engraved with a 9.5 degree on the head, which are probably closer to 10.5 or even higher and no wonder many golfer think they hit the ball too high with a particular loft.
