Acer XV Titanium Driver - Custom Assembled
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.
Please note this requires an extra 5-10 business days of custom assembly time before shipping.

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.
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.
At 5' 4", you might consider 43.5" for length. To order that length on-line, select ladies minus 1/2 inch.
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.
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?
You may want to consider the S-flex to come closer to the frequency of the PL 65 R-flex.
The soleplate on a modern driver is only 1.2mm which is very thin. You will have very little material to tap any threads.
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.
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.).
It is 460cc.
