The Acer XV Ultimate Thriver provides golfers with the best of both worlds by generating driver distance with the control of a fairway wood off of the tee. Year after year, one of our Thrivers has been one, if not, our highest selling and rated tee club.  The XV is the 4th generation model and improves upon several features that have made these fairway-finding demons.

• Thin, reactive face for high COR right up to the legal limit for more distance
• Shorter, more control length for solidness of contact
• Adjustable weighting to provide more fitting options
• Heavier weight head maximizes MOI and increases momentum into the ball
• Large, confidence building volume (460cc) and face height
• Slightly lower loft than previous versions to increase roll and overall distance

What makes most golfers miss a fairway off of the tee?  There are two reasons; one is the length is too long and the other it is too lightweight.  Drivers today are all increasingly longer in length and lighter weight than even a few years ago.  Why?  So one can potentially swing the club faster and have more leverage to hit the ball further.  But that is only achievable is the ball is struck solidly in the center of the face that is square to the target. This is fine for a robot or a touring pro with a repeatable swing. For the average golfer it is a recipe for yet another missed fairway.

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.

One change to this Thriver is reduced loft (12º) which produces approximately the same launch angle as a standard weight 10.5º driver which will have more roll out and total distance.

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.  Suggested Men's Lengths: 44" with 2 gram screw, 43.5" with 7 gram screw and 43" with 12 gram screw.

    Questions on Acer XV Ultimate Thriver - Custom Assembled

    • From Robert Floyd at 1/5/2017 8:51 AM
      • Hello. While I hit most of my clubs reasonably straight, I still push (and sometimes slice) my driver. My instructor says I need more loft and a shorter club length to help me get square. Since I already hit a high ball, I want a club that will provide a more boring ball flight and more roll. My question is, if I cut another inch of length (men's std -1") what shaft would you recommend to get the ball flight I want? Also which weight would you use? Any thoughts on whether my plan even makes sense? Thanks!
      • Robert,

        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.

      • Thanks for the prompt reply. Ok, shortening the club further may be overkill, so let's say I retain the std length (43.5"). In that case, I still have a question regarding the proper shaft. I hate to take a wild guess out of all the choices available. Can you tell me which shaft or type of shaft would best tend towards a lower/more roll type of scenario?

        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?

      • Bob,

        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.

      • The Caiman had an Aldila Gamer R shaft. What do you think would be a comparable shaft from the current selection? Thanks, again, for your help.
      • Robert,

        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.
      • Ron,

        Standard length for men is 43.5" and it does come with all 3 weights.
