Hireko Golf Introduces Iron/Hybrids: The Best of Both Worlds
Hireko Golf, which their well respected and high awarded brand of Irons, Acer, has introduced the new hybrid iron set, the best of both clubs combined to be a straighter, higher flying iron set. The price is right also, and look for a review up coming Golf Magazine, as they make the new product list for 2010:
Take The Top Down And Enjoy The Ride!
For over 8 years, golfers’ world-wide had enjoyed the virtues of the original Acer XDS Wide Sole series iron making them one of Hireko’s best selling and performing irons in company history. Golfers found out first hand what the benefits that a wide sole iron can provide. The Acer XDS Cabriolet takes that same concept and combines it with the modern hybrid. Some hybrids on the market are merely a hollow-bodied iron as a way to move weight further back from the face to create greater forgiveness on off-center shots and the purpose of a wide sole iron is to shift a higher concentration of weight lower to assist in getting the ball up quickly and easily.
The Acer XDS Cabriolet does both by starting out with the chassis of a hybrid but removing the heavy crown and relocating that weight to the extra wide sole creating the best of both worlds; an iron look with hybrid accuracy. The gigantic face will instill confidence for those that need it the most making these the ultimate game improvement iron without the massive offset. Each club in the set required a distinct sole radius to complement the progressive sole width (wider in the longer irons and gradually reducing in size in the scoring irons). This places weight where it is needed most to ensure an ultra-forgiving design that is not only functional, but puts more fun back into the game.
