Hireko Golf's new 2013 Acer XS Titanium Standard and Draw Drivers

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 announced today the arrival of their Acer XS Titanium Standard and Draw Drivers.

Acer XS Titanium Standard Driver
Golf Tips Magazine gave The Acer XS Standard Titanium Driver a "Best Buy" Award in their 2013 Annual Buyer's Guide. Golf Tips said "Wow factor: Awesome price point and solid performance."

The standard version of the Acer XS Driver series is geared to fit as wide array of players as well as complementing the various Acer XS irons. For example, the lowest lofted (9.5º) version is made with a 1º open face to guard against hooking the ball - that same player would most likely select the Acer XS Forged Iron or Acer XS Pro Iron. The best sellers of the group are the 10.5º and 12º lofts; each having a unique set of specifications to match the standard Acer XS Iron or Acer XS HT Irons (high trajectory) respectively.

Hireko Golf's Technical Director Jeff Summitt states "We started with a 460cc titanium driver volume but made the crown a little taller and the breadth a little wider to give it more of a full-bodied look. What makes up difference in size comes in is the shorter heel-to-toe dimension allowing the head to rotate more rapidly around the hosel or shaft so it will be easier to square up at impact."

What really make the Acer XS Titanium Drivers shine are the sensory elements. Its traditional shape will appeal to the most discerning eye, but maybe more importantly will be the muted sound.

Acer XS Titanium Draw Driver
Incorporating the same cutting edge technology as the new Acer XS Titanium Driver, with one major difference; the addition of a generous offset hosel. This helps to further assist squaring up the clubface without having to resort to a severely closed face angle. The Acer XS Titanium Draw-enhancing attributes produce a more powerful, penetrating ball flight for those that typically push, fade or slice the ball off of the tee.

The Acer XS Titanium Standard Driver can be purchased online for $109.95 each and the Acer XS Titanium Draw Driver for $109.95 each (both come with a free headcover) at www.hirekogolf.com.
