The Acer XV Thriver provides golfers with the best of both worlds by generating near-driver distance with the control of a 5 wood off of the tee. The Acer XV Thriver head is a full 20 grams heavier than a normal driver head, at 220g it is the same weight as a typical 5 wood. The standard length is 42" which is the same length as a 5 wood as well. The result is a club which feels and swings just like a 5 wood, which most golfers hit considerably straighter than their driver, but the larger head size gives you the forgiveness of a driver and nearly the same distance! Some golfers may see a slight loss of 10-15 yards on their best drives, but most will see an increase in average distance and a higher percentage of fairways hit because they are hitting the center of the face more often! The Acer XV Thriver is designed with one thing in mind - finding fairways, and it does that at a rate of 2-3x more frequently than a regular driver for most golfers. 

This club only comes in a 12º loft, which at the 42" length produces approximately the same trajectory as a standard length 10.5º driver. Year after year, the Acer Thriver has been one our best selling and highest rated clubs, and this XV is the latest version with some minor improvements to the design.

First Driver-Acer XV Thriver

I started playing golf about 8 months ago and this is my first driver. I've used it on the driving range about 7 or 8 times now and on Par 4 holes on the back-nine at the local course.

With an 85mph clubhead speed I'm hitting range balls right at 200 yards, measured by a launch monitor, and generally fairly straight flight paths. On the course I'm getting around 220-230 yards. I'm striving for accuracy and not trying to 'kill' the ball.

The Acer XV is a great compliment to my Pinhawk single length iron set and 3W. I'm sure my drive lengths will increase as my swing improves over time.

As with my previous orders to SingleLength.com the club arrived when they said it would, to spec, and well packed.

I'll start by tipping my hat to the excellent support from "Single Length" in answering my questions and keeping me posted on my expected delivery (the club was on back order but they were sure to keep me in the loop).

As far as the club is concerned - wow! I've never been a very "long" hitter so I was concerned at sacrificing any more length by going to a shorter shaft. However, after first going on the range, then playing a round, that concern immediately went to the wayside.

In a nutshell, this club is incredibly easy to hit and bottom line, it goes straight. It only took a few swings on the range to find the right ball position (for me, it's just on the inside of my lead foot) and the right grip. After that, it was bombs away straight down the line with very little dispersion (only about 10 yards typically on either side of my target line which makes it easy to hit fairways and control misses).

When struck well, my old driver would carry about 10 - 15 yards further. Unfortunately, 75% of the time, I had no idea where it'd go and often, it was a wounded duck, a banana slice, or horrible hook. With the Thriver, I was able to step up confidently and strike the ball consistently missing only one fairway the entire round. In short, I'm happy to give up those 15 yards on the one or two holes that I might have done well with the old driver compared with hitting more than a dozen fairways instead.

If you've switched over to the single length philosophy with your irons, and unless you already love your current driver, this is a no-brainer. Bonus points that it doesn't set you back financially any where near the cost of a new "traditional" driver.

Tremendous…

This product performs as advertised. Special thanks to the staff for working with us to help in choosing the right shaft to use on this and other clubs! Finally, it might be just me, but I love the sound of this club when you hit one correctly. VERY satisfying!!! A+!

Perfect driver for my game.

This driver has replaced my Ping G400 SFT. I can consistently hit it over 200yds and keep it in the fairway. It also fits in well with my single length fairway woods - All at 42".

15 out of 15 fairways hit

I've had my standard drive (SD) for over 4 years now and like most, lost faith in it a few times over that span. While getting new irons here on Singlelength.com, I found this Thriver. Thus, I got one to see if it would help improve fairways hit.
After I got my Thriver, I took it crouse with my SD (to compare). While on the range for a 20 min warm-up, I did notice the ball fight was shorter than my standard drive, but with the roll-out, I was only 4-5 yards shorter (Thriver: 298 SD: 303). Thus took it to the course for the real test.
Hitting two drives from the tee box, Thriver and SD, the Thriver I hit all 15 fairways, and with SD I hit 9 of 15. I only noticed at most was a 12-yard difference on a miss-hit drive with the Thriver.
In the end, there is no reason this Thriver should work...but it does and does very well. Make sure you know swing speed and get the right shaft and then start hitting those fairways.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • I am using a driver with 2 degree draw how would this compare for for me to use the xv

    This driver has a 1° closed (draw) face, so it would be very close to what you're using now.

  • Can you give some guidelines in choosing a shaft flex? For instance, if you have a swing speed of 90 mph, shaft "X" would be a good fit. Thank you.

    The general guidelines for shaft flex is 80-90mph = reg flex, 90-100mph = stiff, 100+= X-stiff, 70-80, mph=senior, and <70mph=ladies. But those are very general guidelines, the swing speed ratings can vary depending on the shaft model.

  • general. I am concerned about a 3" difference between a standard driver and the ACER XV - If I order the driver as a 44" will that impact your specs for the lie angle and weight you have the head set for 42"? I am trying to understand if increasing the shaft will defeat the purpose of your standard recommendation. My concern is losing distance with the loft and shorter shaft combination. thanks for the info..

    I would not recommend ordering this driver at +2" (44") unless that's the length you need to fit your height (if you're 6'6" or taller), since as you mentioned that would entirely defeat the purpose of this club - which is to feel and swing just like a 5 wood for better accuracy. This single length driver isn't meant to hit the ball as far as possible, it is meant to make your drives as consistent as possible. What you'll typically experience with the the shorter driver is that you may lose around 15 yards on your longest drives, but you'll likely find that your bad swings easily go 15-20 yards farther and much straighter. So your overall average distance may actually increase, depending on how inconsistent you are with a longer driver. And we've had many customers tell us that their longest drives have actually increased as well, because they are able to swing harder since they have more confidence in their swing because they are hitting it straighter. Bottom line, I would recommend ordering the length that fits you based on your height and just trust in the club to do what it's supposed to do - hit the ball straight. :)

  • Are the irons, the fairway woods and the drivers the same length ?

    The driver and fairway woods are the same length as each other, however they are longer than the irons. The woods are all based on a 5-wood length (42") as the standard length, while the irons are based on 7-iron (37") length. So if you get a full set with the Driver, fairway woods, and irons, you'd end up having all your woods at one length and all your irons (or hybirds & irons if you get a combo set) at another length. That means you'll only need to use two different swings - one for the woods, one for the irons - to hit every club in your bag! It's an incredibly easy setup to master.

  • Hi, I'm about to buy a whole left handed set of clubs from you guys but I'm left handed. I see you have irons for left handed people but no woods, is that right ? Is there any other ptions you recommend ?

    Unfortunately none of the single length woods come in left-handed. However, what we've done in the past for lefties is taken a set of traditional driver and fairway woods and modified them to be made at the same length. The biggest factor in making sure the woods perform correctly when made all at the same length as each other is the head weight. Typically a driver head weighs around 195-200g, a 3 wood head is about 210g, and a 5 wood is around 220g, but the single length driver and fairway woods are all 220g. So we can take a set of woods that has a screw weight port and used what's called a "hot melt" gun to inject additional weight into the heads, bringing them all up to 220g, and then they can all be made at the same length and will all swing and feel exactly the same.

    It looks like we have the Acer XV Driver (the same one the Thriver is based on) available in LH in a 10.5 loft, which would play like a 9.5 loft at the shorter 5-wood length, and then we also have the matching Acer XV 3 & 5 fairway woods. So we would add 15-20g to the driver head, 10g to the 3-wood head, and the 5-wood remains unaltered. The pricing on that set would be the same as the Acer Thriver and a set of the Pinhawk fairway woods, so if you'd like to order that set you can place an order online for the RH Acer Thriver and Pinhawk woods, and then in the Notes section on the shopping cart page just mention that you need the woods in left-handed. Once we get the order we'll update it on our end and get those built for you.

  • how many cc's of volume in the head?

    This is a 4600cc driver head

  • Do you offer the Acer XV Titanium Thriver Mini driver?

    We do carry the Acer XV Thriver Mini, but it's not listed on the website at the moment. The price for that club is $20 less than the Thriver, so if you would like to order one you can just make a note on the checkout page that you you would prefer the Mini instead. When we receive the order we will refund you $20 and send you the Mini version instead.

  • what kind of shaft should i select for left handed 50 year old man just starting to play golf?

    Unfortunately this driver is only available in right handed. The only left-handed clubs we have are the Pinhawk irons, none of the drivers or fairway woods are available in left-handed at the moment.

  • If I make an order for Acer XV Thriver Single Length Driver today, when will you be able to ship out the driver?

    We don't have an exact date yet, but they will be here by the end of this month. And we should be able to get all the back orders shipped out within a couple of days of when they arrive.

  • What weight screw come standard in this driver ?

    The head comes from the factory weighing 210g, but then we add 10g of weight which makes it 220g to match our fairway woods and be built at a 42" standard length.
