Golf Tips Magazine honors Hireko Golf with four golf club awards

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. -- Hireko Golf, one of the golf industry's most complete sources for golf clubs, components, clubmaking tools, supplies, and technical knowledge was granted four golf club awards by Golf Tips Magazine in their 2013 Annual Equipment Buyers Guide. The awards highlight the commitment to advanced technologies that the new 2013 Hireko product line exemplifies.

The Power Play Warp Speed Iron was given an "Editor's Pick" award and Golf Tips stated " A crazy low price for a set of irons as good as more, ahem, expensive irons we've tried." The Warp Speed irons were specially designed to propel the ball faster and further than ever before, featuring a high C.O.R. face for the ultimate in distance. The super thin specialty face insert is devised to flex the face like a titanium driver to maximize ball speed and distance. The undercut channel further moves weight back away from the face as well as low for added stability.

The Acer XS CNC Forged Irons were granted a "Forgiveness Supreme" pick and comments were "These are silky smooth and nicely balanced." Combing tradition with modern game improvement technology, each Acer XS Forged iron is precision forged from soft carbon steel for unmatched feel. A computer numerically controlled (CNC) program precisely mills the entire back of the blade into the exact cavity shape you see including an additional step to create an undercut cavity to allow for a deeper weight distribution found only in cast designs.

The Acer XS Fairway Woods were given a "Best Buy" and Golf Tips stated "As usual, these woods are value-minded, but that doesn't mean they skimp on performance. They're both really long and forgiving." Far from ordinary, the Acer XS is a high-performance series of fairway woods featuring a forged body coupled with a very thin, high-strength forged face for explosive distance, sound and feel at impact. This midsized design is highly functional off of the ground or the tee as the forging process allow freedom in reducing thickness in the crown so we can maintain a lower center of gravity without sacrificing face height.

And finally the new Hireko Acer XS Titanium Fairway Woods also had a "Best Buy" with the comments "Again, a stellar price, especially considering the club is all titanium." These titanium fairway woods are made entirely out of titanium to experience the same benefits of a modern titanium driver. Titanium is used for weight savings for large heads and fairways aren't exactly large to begin with. In fact, the shell of the Acer XS Titanium 3 wood head weighed only a mere 130g or 80g lighter than a standard model. Imagine all this much weight in such a confined space as it will assuredly create a fairway wood with an ultra-low center of gravity.
