If I have you cut the shaft by an inch, do you adjust the swing weight or is that something that I should do on my own?

Question by: Mark on Mar 27, 2015, 2:57 PM

We don't adjust the swingweight automatically. For an inch shorter I would advise getting the optional 12g screw and replacing the stock screw (7g) that comes with the head.

If I have a 1/2 long stiff shaft should I stay with 7g screw or should I replace with 2g screw for maximum length off tee
Question by: Fred on Apr 10, 2015, 6:53 PM

Most likely all your other clubs are standard weight and 1/2" longer resulting into a higher swingweight. I would probably opt for the stock 7g weight, but you could always order a spare 2g weight to see whether or not that could increase performance.

I have a usual clubhead speed of 105 and a high of 110 when I go after it, I'm just wondering what shaft in this driver would you recommend?
Question by: Trent on Aug 12, 2015, 7:21 AM

Sometimes shaft fitting has more to do with your tempo and speed alone. The first question I would have is what shaft and flex are you currently using now? Secondly, how do you hit it or where do your misses go? Lastly, does that shaft feel too light, too heavy, too stiff or too flexible or does it seem to be fine?

I'm getting older and have lost some distance with my driver. How does the new XV compare to the XS titanium as to face hotness and regaining some distance.
Question by: James M on Aug 21, 2015, 2:24 PM

Both are equally hot as far as the COR measured in the center of the face. The difference would be the XV would produce better result when struck low on the face, plus it is slightly more forgiving than the XS. If you are losing distance and all of the sudden you are hitting the ball lower than your playing partners, you might consider more loft. That is only if you notice the ball going lower.

My son is 5'4 and he's using a junior driver. I think a senior flex would work for him, but having it 44 inches would be too long. What length would you recommend and how would I select that option on the site?
Question by: Tom on Sep 7, 2015, 6:23 PM

At 5' 4", you might consider 43.5" for length. To order that length on-line, select ladies minus 1/2 inch.

I have a XS thriver 14* will the XV driver get me more distance....I am 74 years old...around 75 to 80 swing speed....what shaft would you recommend...Frank
Question by: Frank on Jan 25, 2016, 7:53 AM

The Thriver was never designed as a distance club - more so of a control club off of the tee. Since the Acer XV is lighter and allows for a longer assembly length, this should help you to generate a little more club head speed. If so and you are able to make the same solid contact as the shorter Thriver, it should produce more distance assuming same loft, If you are seeing no roll, dropping down in loft may also help.

My current driver has a Prolaunch Blue 65R shaft in it. Would I want the Acer Velocity shaft in regular flex or stiff?
Question by: Billy on Feb 4, 2016, 1:49 PM

You may want to consider the S-flex to come closer to the frequency of the PL 65 R-flex.

Right now i am playing a XS thriver 14*.....with standard shaft....I like to buy the XV driver....also 14*...I am 74 years old...swing speed around 75....which shaft would you recommend for the new XV....I am accurate with the thriver...looking for more distance...
Question by: Frank on Feb 5, 2016, 6:11 PM

The purpose of the Thriver was one of accuracy. The Acer XV driver will be lighter and 1" longer (standard length) that may help increase your speed and potentially distance. You could use the standard stock shaft since you are hitting it well in the Thriver. However, if you would like an upgrade, we certainly have many. It all depends upon if you have a certain price range or brand preference.

One other item I might mention is the loft. Even though the Thriver is 14 degrees, it tends to hit the ball lower than the loft suggests. If you tend to hit the Thriver a tad high, drop to the 12 degree in the XV.

right I am hitting a XS thriver.....I am looking for more will the XV 14* help me....should I stick with the # 7 screw or go to the #12....and what shaft will be the best
Question by: Frank Mauro on Jul 1, 2016, 7:26 PM

In order to hit the ball further, you need to do 3 things.

1. Maintain solidness of contact

2. Increase swing speed. This can be accomplished by a lighter club and/or longer club. If you are reasonably accurate with the Thriver, then I would not go shorter and add the 12 gram weight.

3. Optimize trajectory. If you are not getting much roll with the Thriver, then go with 12 degrees.

As far as best shaft, I would need to know what you are using now (and flex) and what direction the ball is going (right, left, high, low, etc.).
