Product Description

SLDR is built to help you hit longer/straighter drives by promoting a high launch angle, lower spin-rate and faster ball speed. That’s what makes SLDR our longest driver ever.*SLDR’s CG location is both low and forward, due in large part to the large, 20-gram sliding weight on the sole. That promotes a dramatic leap in distance.In addition to the low-forward CG benefits, the SLDR weight also represents a complete reinvention of movable weight, making it more effective and easier to use. Movable weight shifts the clubhead’s CG horizontally toward either the heel, to promote a draw, or toward the toe, to promote a fade. SLDR’s sliding weight allows you to shift the CG far enough to promote a side-to-side trajectory change of up to 30 yards.The SLDR weight slides on the track and never comes loose from the clubhead. To slide the weight to any of the 21 positions on the track, simply loosen the screw, slide the weight, then tighten the screw. It takes as little as ten seconds. And the sole is marked with the words “fade” at the toe-end of the track and “draw” at the heel-end of the track to make it clear where you should position the weight to promote the shot-shape you want.SLDR also incorporates our Loft-sleeve Technology, which allows you to adjust the loft. You can choose from 12 positions within a range of plus-or-minus 1.5 degrees of loft change. SLDR is available in three lofts – 9.5°, 10.5° and HL.Aesthetically, SLDR’s confluence of shape, color and visual accents make it one of the most visually compelling clubs we’ve ever created. Its striking modern-classic shape, charcoal-gray crown and chrome “button-back” all adds up to a remarkably beautiful appearance at address. And the clean design of SLDR’s movable weight mechanism, including the single, blue weight and the track it slides in makes its appearance equally striking.*Driver claim based on robot testing of 9.5 driv

HASH(0x9ad1b9cc) out of 5 stars The Best Driver I've Ever Used 1 Oct. 2013
By LarryMcJ - Published on Amazon.com
I will make this as short and helpful as possible. I'm 67 years old, 7 handicap, 95 M.P.H. swing speed and until I purchased the SLDR, was playing a 9.5 degree Titleist 910 D2 (set to 10.25 degrees with as much draw bias as possible). On a very new and good simulator I hit my driver about 215 carry, with way too much spin, and could never get over 12 degrees of launch. I have a slight over-the-top move (as do most amateurs) but sometimes with my Titleist that produced a big fade that only ran out to only 170-180 yards and could easily get me out of bounds.

Enter the SLDR, set to 11 degrees and two marks of draw bias. On the same simulator I hit it 235 yards carry, vertical launch of 14-14.5 (consistently), but most importantly, really low spin, which meant the ball should roll out a lot further. On our three courses where I live, the fairways are not very hard, so there generally isn't a lot of roll, but I found myself hitting drives that were on average about 15-20 yards further than the old driver. But that is not what impressed me most. With the SLDR, my misses still roll out to over 200 yards and they don't leave the fairway or light rough! I've hit some shots that really should have been out of bounds, but they remained in the fairway or intermediate rough.

To the detriment of our retirement funds, I've played way too many new drivers (and other new clubs) in my life, but this one will be staying my bag for quite some time. Well, at least until the SLDR-2 comes out :-)

HASH(0x9b7cf954) out of 5 stars Best Driver yet 12 Dec. 2013

This club is everything the manufacturer claims. Had the R11 before and this is tons better, longer and more forgiving on off centre hits. Sits well and looks good too. Well done TaylorMade

HASH(0x9ad1f564) out of 5 stars Fantastic Club! 21 May 2014
By Trent M. Sherwood - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This SLDR club is as advertised! If you have a slight natural draw or fade, you can offset the effect through adjusting the setting on the bottom of the club, which is very simple to do. Go to the range with your key in hand and play around with the settings until you are comfortable with the reaction and then hit the course. During practice rounds, you can further tweak the settings. This club is amazing! I am not sure if it is the club or my confidence level but i feel that I am hitting the ball a good 10 yards further with better ball carry as well as much better control. I am a true duffer and this club has me wanting to get out on the course every day!

HASH(0x9ad1bca8) out of 5 stars Not the most forgiving TM driver to date 31 Mar. 2014
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Great driver if you hit it relatively close to the sweet sport. I hit it well at the Taylormade demo days but then I noticed over time it penalizes you quite a bit if you don't hit its narrow sweet spot. It's not a driver you can hit higher on the face or closer to the toe or heel like I can with my R1 and get away with it..sure not great distance but my R1 got better distance than the SLDR on mishits. More of a players driver than a game improvement driver. Probably why the words Forgiveness, MOI or Sweet Spot are not mentioned on the Taylormade website when discussing the SLDR. I returned it and got the Big Bertha which has been a great upgrade as it has more side to side forgiveness I need some days when my swing is not there. Plus long with more consistent distance than the R1 and SLDR. But If you hit all your drives flush, then the SLDR is the driver for you as it does provide crazy distance due to the lower spin if your swing is well above average.

HASH(0x9af3515c) out of 5 stars More accurate than my previous driver... 2 Jan. 2014

Loft: 9.5Flex: StiffShaft Material: carbon-steelHand Orientation: Right
I had been playing with a 6yr old Callaway driver which I liked, but decided to see if the new technology would help my game. I got fit at my club by a pro for an R1 last fall. My pro let me play 18 holes with it, and the R11 definitely was a more accurate club due to the lower spin rate which helps the ball fade and draw less - making the miss-hits less punitive. Afterwards, my pro suggested I wait for the SLDR to become available since it was the end of the season, and the SLDR is supposed to be an improvement over the R1. I waited, and have since played about 10 rounds with the new SLDR and can make an honest assessment.

Having come from a 10 degree loft with a stiff shaft, the pro recommended the 10.5 degree SLDR with a regular shaft. He also cranked up the loft, so I am playing it around 11.5 degrees. My pro explained that since the new drivers are designed to spin the ball less, they require a higher loft to get the ball to the optimal trajectory. I usually drive the ball about 250-275 yards, but he claims the regular shaft is correct for me - supposedly shaft technology has changed, and even some pros play regular flex.

My conclusion after 10 rounds is that I hit the ball about the same distance as my previous 6yr old Callaway, but the SLDR is noticeably straighter. The technology of producing lower spin seems to work. I suspect I will pick up a couple of strokes as there are probably 2 or 3 drives per round that I may have hit along the trees that will stay in the rough, or shots that would have found the rough that stay in the edge of the fairway. My only disappointment is my drives aren't going 20-30 yards further, as some of the promotional YouTube videos might suggest, but that's all marketing BS. My pro told me upfront this driver wouldn't go any longer, but it would be straighter, and he was right. Perhaps people who claim this driver goes further than their old driver could be due to the fact that their old drivers may not have been properly fit for them?
