Acer XV Ultimate Thriver - Custom Assembled
The Acer XV Ultimate Thriver is a full 10 to 20 grams heavier than a normal driver to allow from anywhere between 1 to 2 inches shorter for a more controllable playing length that now has the proper amount of weight in their hands. The addition of the weight produces even greater forgiveness making this the ultimate in control off the tee. Plus with more weight in the head will transfer more momentum to the ball and establish a better swing tempo. The Acer XV Ultimate Thriver comes with 3 different weights (2, 7 and 12 grams) giving customers options for length and swingweight not possible with any other driver on the market.
Please note this requires an extra 5-10 business days of custom assembly time before shipping.

The Ultimate Thriver also features the same Power Chamber and Gravity Port as the matching driver for improved performance and versatility.

This club is already designed to be 1-2" shorter than standard depending the weight that is used. That in itself might be enough to keep you on the straight and narrow. For 44", I might start out with a 2 gram and also try the 7g screw. At 43.5", start out with the 7g screw and play around with both the 2g and 12g to see which you hit best. Lastly, at 43", start out with the 12g weight and also try the 7g screw.
When golfers say they hit the ball "high" often times it is still not high enough or a factor of pushing, fading or slicing the ball. The key is to look at your straight shots. If you are not getting any roll, then the loft is likely an issue aside from technique.
FWIW, I have used a Hireko driver before; I had a Power Play Caiman, also shortened for control, that I hammered and hit fairly straight. Alas, it came apart at the seams, but I loved the feel and am hoping for something similar or better with this newer and higher tech driver. Your thoughts?
You want to be careful about getting a shaft that is labeled "low launch" because often they are stiffer tipped products which may in turn may make your push (or sometimes slice) even worse. Since you hit the Caiman well, I would use possibly the same shaft or one similar to it. If I knew what you had, I might also be able to suggest other possibilities.
A short list would be Aldila's NVS 65, Aerotech Powercoil 65 and UST 65 Gold.
I would like to order this club: what is it's standard length? Does it come with all the back weights? Thank you.
Standard length for men is 43.5" and it does come with all 3 weights.
This driver is more for control or for those who wish or need a shorter than normal driver. If you are looking at higher launch angle off the tee, you should look for more loft. The Acer XV has 14º loft and designed for standard assembly length. The Acer XS Thriver is similar to the Ultimate Thriver (heavier and shorter) also have 14º loft compared to 12º for the Ultimate. There is also the iBella Obsession driver at 13º.
The Grafally ProLaunch Blue 45 would be the lightest shaft available if speed and distance are at center stage as well.
We would need more information about your swing (speed and tempo) as well as other shafts you have hit well to be able to determine what might be a good candidate. We tip trim the shaft as if it were a 3-wood to offset the additional head weight.
Headweight, length, swingweight and flex are all interrelated. By making a standard head shorter, the swingweight will be much lighter and the frequency will increase (become stiffer) by at least 1/2 of a flex with adjusting tip trimming. This will lead to a lower ball flight and possibly make it harder to control as you may not know where the head is during the swing.
