    Who the heck is Acer?

    Via my scouring of eBay to try and find a cheap 3/4 iron to experiment with, I stumbled across this item:

    Never heard of them though. Anyone know? Are they any good or is it junk?

    Junk
    And not cheap junk either.
    Search 4 iron on eBay
    There's loads of decent 2nd hand ones at half the price of that.

    I have been doing that. I guess I find it difficult to take a stab on something I haven't tried, hence why I'm on here asking advice every 5 minutes.

    Pretty much anything from Callaway or Ping from 2005 onwards is going to be worth a punt.
    X16/18/20, G10/15/20 are the ones to look for.
    If your shafts are regular then a regular in the 4 iron won't be too far off.

    Re: Who the heck is Acer?

    I don't have a four iron spare but I do have spare 3 irons - a Big Bertha, Ping G2 & I think a Callaway X20.

    If it helps you can borrow one and see if you like it, if you do it will cost you a donation to H4h via Richards just giving page, if not just post it back to me.


    PM me if interested

    This one is older but might be worth a pop?

    Acer has been around for donkey's years.

    I have just bought an Acer 29 degree hybrid head off them and am very happy with it.

    I did fit a known brand of shaft.

    I take it that you have played them to be so certain.

    After all it couldn't just be brand snobbery, could it?

    Re: Who the heck is Acer?

    In addition to the wgc offer, I have a G2 hl and Callaway fusion 4i in the shed from when I was on a similar quest. Am in Hertford. £25 for either or £40 the pair...both regular.

    The fusion is the highest ranking in the maltby playability index iirc.

    I ended up getting a ping g10 hybrid, which I found (still find) does more things well in that part of the bag
