The XV Thriver Mini is a whole new classification of club. Not exactly a driver and not exactly a 3 wood, but can be used to replace either!
This is a special shallow-face control club to hit off of a shorter tee, or a great club to use in the fairway when you need the maximum distance possible. This head has a very large profile that makes it much more forgiving than a typical 3-wood. Compare it to the TaylorMade SLDR S Mini Driver. It's an all-titanium head, and the lighter weight of titanium allows Acer to distribute the weight in the ultimate locations to help you get the ball airborn quicker. It will give you a higher trajectory than the loft would indicate.
Even more importantly, the thinner, hotter, "high C.O.R." titanium face will help give you more distance. This club offers the features of the XV driver, such as the "Power Chamber" (speed pocket) sole which enhances energy transfer to the ball creating higher ball speeds even when you don't hit the "sweet spot" in exactly the right place.
It also has the "gravity port" which allows you to tweak the weight if desired. Weight screws are sold separately here. The stock weight screw is 7 grams and all you need to change it is a common 4mm allen wrench.
