|Our Review: On one of our outings, we dragged this wedge along for the round in a 54 degree configuration. We just thought it looked like many other wedges that we have seen. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find that it is a very noteworthy performer.We passed it around our foursome and tried it in many different conditions and situations. I think we all agreed that it performed best for flop shots near the green.The look and feel of the club was excellent and our conclusion was that we would all play this wedge on a regular basis.PROs: Available in 8 right hand lofts.CONs: Only 4 left hand lofts.|

|Manufacturers Description: The Acer XB combines the tradition, beauty and elegance of the past you would only expect with a blade style wedge. Starting with a classic teardrop shape, tapered hosel, very minimal offset, thin top line and narrow sole, no attention to detail is left out.The four-way cambered sole and moderate bounce angles allow for maximum playability from a variety of situations you may encounter on the course. The versatility of the D-grind sole allows for the face to be opened when needed and is good from any lie to produce creative face angle positions for shots like “bump and run” and “the flop” around the green.Perhaps the greatest attribute is that no other set of wedges are as complete and versatile as the Acer XB wedges. There are as many as 8 different lofts to choose from providing you with total short-game management. Many golfers are content with the standard 52, 56 and 60 degree set up, which we have you covered. We also have the harder, if not impossible to find higher lofted wedges (lob wedge) like the 64 and the 68 degree (satin finish only) for the high little delicate shots when you need to have the ball land softly.With so many pitching wedges being manufactured with 46º of loft, for many golfers it makes more sense to carry 50, 54 and 58 degree lofts instead. This way they have the nice separation in distance without gaps from their game-improvement irons and still cover the majority of shots they will encounter on the course.The appearance is equally as superb as its performance. The Acer XB Wedges are precision cast in four different finishes: lustrous pearl chrome, an elegant non-glare matte black, brilliant high polish and maintenance-free satin.|
The Acer XB Satin Wedge by Hireko is available in a lob wedge.
