    Well, the club building itch has hit me again. Between boredom and ready to play some new/different clubs on a very limited budget, I'm thinking about building a few clubs. I made the mistake or smart move, (haven't decided yet), of ordering a new Hireko Catalog. Has anyone had any experiences good or bad with Acer componets?

    They are making a new driver called the Acer XF Leggera that falls into the new superlight group of drivers out on the market today I'm curious about. And they have a line of fairway woods and hybrids called the XDS React's, that have me intriqued.

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone on here had dealt with Acer componets and their satisfaction level with them?

    Duh, guess I should have used the search feature first before making this post. I see quite a few of y'all have tried Acer and were pleased with them. Dayum, I even suggested them in one thread, double duhhhhhhh, lol.

    Oh well, what can I say? Long day couped up inside watching the rain pour down. :)

    I have looked at and given thought to building a set of their irons a few times, just have never pulled the trigger.

    Was just looking at their website, any thoughts on the Apollo shafts? I have heard of them and know they have been around awhile, but never had any experience with them!

    Thanks guys, the more I look at the Acer XF Leggera Driver the more I want. Once I get a few things taken care of I am going to build one of them. Its kind of a cross between a TM R-11 and the new Cleveland ultralight line I'm so interested in.

    So that is were I'll begin.

    Built a set of Acer irons for a friend, they were top notch fit and finish. I haven't hit them, but he really like them.

    Just found out that Hireko now ship to Australia. Dangerous!!!

    They used to have a distributor here but he was frickin' hopeless, impossible to contact and when you could get him he'd never have the stuff you wanted and struggled to get it in.
