Hireko Golf's 2013 Acer XS Titanium and Stainless Fairway Woods

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 new for 2013 Acer XS Titanium Fairway and Acer XS Stainless Fairway Woods.

Acer XS Titanium Fairway Woods
Golf Tips Magazine gave the Acer XS Titanium Fairway Woods a "Best Buy" award in their 2013 Annual Buyer's Guide. Golf Tips said "Wow Factor: Again, a stellar price, especially considering the club is all titanium." Instead of replacing a stainless steel face with a thin sheet of lightweight titanium, Hireko created the whole clubhead 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 weighs only a mere 130g or 80g lighter than a standard model. Therefore it required an addition of 80g of weight secured onto the sole to bring the club back up to weight or in essence concentrating an amazing 71% of the entire head's weight just into the sole plate. Compare that to a standard stainless steel fairway sole which may only be 25% of the total head weight. 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. Therefore the lofts were strengthened to normalize trajectory and still get the ball airborne easily.

Hireko Golf's Technical Director Jeff Summitt states "Don't forget why we use titanium for drivers - distance! The Acer XS Titanium Fairways Woods are easily our longest. While the stronger lofts help, it is the ultrathin high rebound face that makes the ball come off of the face just as hot and explosive as a driver. Hit the ball higher, hit the ball straighter and hit the ball further with no additional effort with the Acer XS Titanium Fairway Woods."

Golf Tips Magazine gave the Acer XS Fairway Woods a "Best Buy" award in their 2013 Annual Buyer's Guide. Golf Tips said "Wow Factor: As usual, these woods are value-minded, but that doesn't mean they skimp on performance. They're both really long and forgiving."

Technical Director Jeff Summitt states "Far from ordinary, the Acer XS Fairway Wood 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."

The Acer XS Titanium Fairway Woods can be purchased online for $79.95 each (comes with a free headcover) and the Acer XS Stainless Fairway Woods for $54.95 each (free headcover) at
