The SLDR iron is an iron for all players who are seeking the best of both worlds: advanced technology and top-level performance. The iron has a modern and traditional shape, with a slim-looking topline and a thin sole making for a visually appealing golf club. It’s packed with TaylorMade’s cutting-edge performance enhancing-technologies: ThruSlot Technology, a deep undercutting Speed Pocket, and an Ultra-Thin face. All of these work together to enhance the launch angle, forgiveness, and distance of shots, achieving ultimate playability in an iron.
TaylorMade is implementing a new and improved Speed Pocket with ThruSlot Technology to promote lightning-fast ball speeds with towering trajectory across the entire face of the iron delivering extreme forgiveness. The Ultra-Thin face flexes on contact with the golf ball for a trampoline effect, achieving the USGA limit on ball speeds. The SLDR irons also feature a complex vibration-dampening system that delivers the sound and feel that Tour professionals demand.
The SLDR iron has consistent loft gapping for precision and ultimate distance control throughout the entire set. The iron sets will be manufactured with the KBS Tour C-Taper 90 shaft. This shaft produces a high trajectory with spin-stopping control you can trust when attacking those tucked pin locations. This shaft adds a piece to the all-consuming quest for more distance.
