Acer XV Titanium Driver - Clubhead
The Acer XV is a versatile and technologically enhanced driver series available in a variety of lofts to suit players of all skill levels. The classic appearance has a lot of functionality from the addition of the Power Chamber sole, Gravity Port and CNC milled crown. The Power Chamber sole enhances energy transfer to the ball while the Gravity Port allows for fine-tuning of swingweight for different shaft weights and balance points and custom assembly lengths. The Acer XV drivers feature our lightest all-titanium crown ever. It goes through a CNC milling process to remove excessive reduce weight than can be repositioned strategically within the head for optimal performance. Stock screw is 7 grams and requires 4mm Allen wrench

LIGHT AS A FEATHER
The Acer XV drivers feature our lightest all-titanium crown ever. It goes through a CNC milling process to remove excessive reduce weight than can be repositioned strategically within the head for optimal performance.
Most drivers are set at 1 degree closed due to it's size to enable it to square up at impact. The exceptions would be ones designed for stronger golfers (lower lofts) and any head with internal weighting in the heel (like the XDS Insider or React) to help close the head more rapidly.
In most cases for a driver there is no tip trimming so you won't be able to take less to accommodate the lighter option. With the 12g weight, you are at the weight of a 2-wood. In this situation you can trim more to offset the additional weight. But if you didn't, generally that amount is 1/4" to at most 1/2" which would make the frequency 1-3 cpm less. For most golfers, this small amount would not be able to be felt. However, being more flexible could increase the launch angle and spin ever so slightly.
For your last question about spin, that is a tricky answer because it will depend upon where you make impact on the clubface. If you make contact higher than the center of percussion, then you could see a decrease in spin where as low on the face would cause more spin.
Not really. Hitting above the center of the face on a club is usually optimum anyway as the ball will be at or above the center of percussion of the clubhead. Where distance is lost is lower on the face and that is where the Power Chamber can aid in getting back some of that lost distance. Remember, tee it high, let it fly!
There is no comparison - the Acer XV is a better all-around driver in all phases from performance to sound.
Both are very good drivers. The Acer XV is the newer of the two and allows for customization of weight / length due to the gravity port. The XV is also available in a 14º loft if you are looking for an even higher loft and not the XS Thriver which is a specialty control driver that is designed heavier.
First, our tolerances for loft, lie and face angle on this product is +/- 1º, while weight is +/-3 grams. However, we don't have the resources to hand-pick for certain specifications and still get all the orders out on a timely basis so we don't offer that service.
It is a 6-4 face. There was no need to resort to beta titanium as the COR/CT is at the USGA limit.
Since you went to a shorter length, you could opt for the 12g screw rather than the stock 7g screw that came with the head. This would increase the swingweight by 3 points and make the club slightly more flexible. Ball flight might be a little higher as well.
They are on the water now so they should be arriving in about 2 weeks.
