Acer XS Thriver 3 Wood Plus Driver Fairway Finder

If you need help finding the fairways, then this is the club for you. It gives you the accuracy and consistency of a 3 wood off the tee, but with head and face size of a driver for more distance and added forgiveness. The result is a club that is as accurate as your 3 wood while being nearly as long as your driver (distance will typically be half way between your regular driver and 3 wood distance).
Competitor's Price $119.99
Our Price $99.99


If you already have a head cover, it needs to be able to fit a larger 500cc+ driver for it to work with the Juggernaut or Felon drivers.

Description Technical Specs
While the Acer XS Leggera might be one of longest drivers on the market, and the Acer XS Draw one of the best at correcting a slice, the Acer XS Thriver is definitely one of the straightest and most consistent drivers you will ever hit. For those who have a hard time controlling their driver - whether you're fighting a hook, a slice, or worse, both - finding the fairway (and your ball!) is a welcome relief. The Thriver delivers with a club that you can hit off the tee with the confidence and accuracy of your 3 wood, but with the larger more forgiving head of a driver. By making the Thriver the same length and weight as a 3 wood, while lowering the loft 1 degree and making the head out of titanium rather than the typical steel of a 3 wood, you end up with a club that is both more forgiving and longer hitting than your 3 wood but just as accurate. The feedback on this club from our customers has been nothing short of spectacular, and for some it has completely revolutionized their game by allowing them to finally feel comfortable hitting a "driver" off the tee again.

5 of 5 Fairway Finder!! October 4, 2015
Reviewer: James  
I came on here to write a review of this head after playing with it today, but first I thought I'd glance at some other reviews to see what everyone else said, and I laughed when I read Christoper's review from 7/18/15 because it is almost VERBATIM what I was going to write! I too just finished my first full round with my Thriver. I had previously hit only hit maybe 20-30 balls with it at the range before, and occasionally on the course when it was a tight fairway or short hole. But today I decided to play the entire round with the Thriver because - like Christopher - my other driver has been misbehaving quite a bit lately. I can poke a drive 280-300 yards on a good hit, but I'm usually only good for around 40-50% fairways hit. Well today, guess what? I hit every single fairway except one!! Not only did I hit almost all the fairways, but nearly every shot was DEAD STRAIGHT UP THE MIDDLE and about 250-260 yards. And the one fairway I missed was only a few yards into the rough. Plus, there was about a 20-30mph wind which would push everyone's drives all over the place if they had even the slightest fade or draw on them. But I didn't have a problem, because every single one of my drives was perfectly straight right where I was aiming. I was afraid the Thriver wouldn't be as long as I needed it to be, but I was keeping up with (and sometimes outdriving) all the other guys in my group who were playing regular drivers. Hell, it almost got boring by the end of the round just having everything go straight up the middle every time! :) I paired mine up with an SK FIber Tour Trac 90 shaft, stiff flex, 43.5" Length, and I can't say enough good things about that setup. If you have a fast swing and smooth tempo like me (mine is 105mph with driver, and about a 1.25 sec tempo) then I'd grab one of those shafts for $20 while they last! It is an insanely good shaft for the money. The radial CPM of those shafts is +/- 1 CPM in any direction, so they are very consistent and the quality control of SK Fiber is second to none. If you have heard of these Thrivers but just haven't pulled the trigger on one yet, or if you haven't heard of them and you're reading about them here for the first time, I wouldn't waste one more minute debating whether or not to buy one. JUST DO IT. As long as you get the right shaft for your swing, I can pretty much guarantee you will improve your scores by hitting a lot more fairways.

5 of 5 fantastic July 8, 2015
Reviewer: Christopher  
i've been struggling with my driver for a couple years, i bought a jetspeed taylor made about 6 months ago. i've had mixed results with this, some corking long drives over 300 yards, but mostly i'm left right etc. i miss too many fairways! i just finished my first 18 with the xs thriver, 14 degree, with the acer velocity white shaft, cut to stiff, at 44 inches. i repeatedly hit the center of the club face, and hit just about all the fairways! my misses (if you could call them that) were minimal and did not put me in any danger. i cannot believe that i just had 75% genuine fairways. 2 of my drives were between 251 and 260, 6 of my drives were between 240 and 250, and the others were mixed but all over 220. the game is so much easier playing from the fairway! I'll be playing again tomorrow and will report on any differences. i'm kind of in shell shock at what just happened!

5 of 5 SWEET! April 13, 2015
Reviewer: James  
Unbelievable fit and finish to this 14 degree custom-designed club. Solid feel to contact, very repeatable. Not one true slice! glad I spent less than $150 on a really nice driver! OEM makers of clubs should be ashamed to charge $400 - $500 for their stuff. Thanks!

3 of 5 Disappointed. Not what I had hoped. December 2, 2014
Reviewer: Wilber  
Since I was having trouble keeping my drives in the fairway, I thought I'd give the Thriver a try. I also have the Power Play Caiman Raw Power #3 metal (old model), so I thought that with the Thriver having 1 degree less loft and two inches longer shaft, I'd get more distance than with the Caiman *and* hit more fairways than with my driver. I've used the Thriver for eight rounds, and it is leaving my bag. True, I hit more fairways than with my old driver, but, to my surprise I was losing 5-8 yards on drives compared to the #3 Caiman. Go figure! Plus, I can't really use the Thriver as a fairway wood as I can with the Caiman.
