Acer XF Leggera Driver

Grade: B
Teacher’s Comments: Another solid value

If you’re in the market for a very reasonably priced, solidly performing driver, the Acer Leggera XF just might be the ticket. Designed for a length of at least 46 inches, the Acer XF Leggera Driver is longer than the driver standard. That should translate into more clubhead speed, and thus more distance. Unfortunately—ceteris paribus—lengthening a club also increases the swingweight, potentially making the driver feel heavy and upsetting a player’s balance and rhythm. So to offset this, Acer designed this stick with a lighter clubhead and shaft.

Does it work? Yes. I did get considerable distance out of the Leggera. But that length also comes with another price: decreasing accuracy. Again, all things being equal, the longer the club, the less accurate it is. I wasnt’t spraying this one all over the course, but it’s not as straight as my Nike MachSpeed or my TaylorMade R7.  But it’s also not a club that better player will likely be able to work, with its 1 degree closed face angle.

On the other hand, Hireko did do the job on the swing weight. The Acer XF Leggera swings as smoothly as any club in my bag.

From address, the club is very nice looking, with the white crown that these days is all the rage.

Build quallity on the Acer XF Leggera is very good. The seams on the driver head are smooth, and the ferrules and grip properly installed.

As with all the Hireko products, the Acer XF Leggera is a bargain for what you get: a 460cc titanium driver built to custom specs for just over $100.

Listed below is a brief description of my putter and you may visit my website, www.divotrepairputter.com to get all the pertinent information. I would be interested in discussing the idea of your company carrying my putters along with your golf products or discussion any proposal if you wish to present one.

The putter comes both right and left handed, with head cover and has been submitted to the USGA for evaluation and was deem to conform to The Rules of Golf. The putter also comes in a belly putter with shaft lengths of 40” to 43” ( assembled on order) and they also conform to the USGA Rules of Golf.
    .The Double Duty divot repair putter was submitted to Golftest USA and received an 8.5 rating for its putting ability on a scale of 1 to 10 which earned it a 3 star rating and a seal of excellence.
