    Description

    The TaylorMade SLDR Driver has the innovative SLDR sliding weight technology coupled with a modern-classic, charcoal-gray crown head design. The easy and intuitive SLDR sliding weight allows for 21 different weight positions and promotes up to 30 yards of shot shape adjustment. The strategically placed Low-forward CG position in the SLDR head promotes a faster ball speed, high launch and low spin for extraordinary distance. This driver also features a 12-position loft-sleeve to add or subtract 1.5° to each of the available standard lofts and a silver button-back located on the trail edge of the crown which works with the subtle crown markings for stress-free clubface alignment. The easy adjusting SLDR driver has a 460cc head and can be tuned to fit tour pros and amateurs alike.

    Q
    What's the difference between stiff and regular?
    asked by Adam P. on 11/6/2015
    A
    Stiff and regular refer to the flex of the shaft. A regular flex would typically suit players with swing speeds between 82-93 mph and an average distance between 210-240. A stiff shaft would work best for golfers with swing speeds between 93-105 mph and an average distance of 240-280.

    Q
    What is the difference between the 2 shafts?
    asked by Lyle D. on 11/27/2015
    A
    There is a Speeder 57 shaft that is lighter in weight and will promote a slightly higher ball flight. The Speeder 65 will be about 8-10 grams heavier (depending on flex) and have a slightly higher balance point for a slightly lower ball flight and less spin.

    Q
    Will I need a Torque Tool to make adjustments to this club?
    asked by Barry B. on 1/19/2016
    A
    Yes, the torque wrench is needed in order to adjust the loft of the club and to move the sliding weight on the sole of the club.

    Q
    Can I adjust the degree to 10.5?
    asked by John B. on 4/21/2016
    A
    The SLDR Driver can be adjusted 1.5 degrees in each direction that the driver is listed as having. For example, if the driver is listed at 10.5 degrees, the driver can be adjusted down to a 9 degree in half degree increments, or up to a 12 degree in half degree increments.

    Q
    what does the S in SLDR S mean as opposed to simply an SLDR designation
    asked by Morley C. on 4/16/2017
    A
    The S refers to the fact that the model features a bonded hosel and does not have the ability to make loft and lie adjustments. The loft and lie are fixed. The standard model shown here features the TaylorMade Loft sleeve allowing for adjustments to loft and lie via the hosel.

    Love the sldr

    Handicap: 21+  Plays Golf: I play monthly  Dexterity: Right Hand

    I couldn't find the fairway to save my life with my old driver. I switched to the sldr 12 deg and now I rarely miss. I didn't like the distance I was getting at 12 dogs and overtime I cranked it down to 10.5 which gives me plenty of distance and control. If you're looking to find more fairways then you can't go wrong with the sldr.

    Handicap: 0-5  Plays Golf: I play more than once a week  Dexterity: Left Hand

    This driver will perform excellently if you truly loft up! I typically play a driver at around 8.5 degrees, and I'm up to around 10 with SLDR. Spin is super low and drives are long and accurate!

    SOLID DRIVER

    Handicap: 0-5  Plays Golf: I play more than once a week  Dexterity: Right Hand

    THE CLUBS IS VERY SOLID OFF THE FACE. FEELS A LOT LIKE THE CALLAWAY RAZR FIT OFF THE FACE. THE TRAJECTORY OF MY SHOTS ARE LOWER THAT MY R11. THE DISTANCE IS ABOUT THE SAME, MAYBE A FEW YARDS EXTRA. THE LOOK IS DIFFERENT. I PERSONALLY LIKE THE WHITE BETTER. I SLIDE THE 20G PIECE TO A COUPLE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AND STILL GOT ABOUT THE SAME BALL FLIGHT. I BELIEVE IF YOU HAVE A STRONG SLICE OR HOOK, FIXING YOUR SWING WILL BE THE FIRST STEP. BUT IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE CUT OR SLIGHT DRAW YOU WANT TO STRAIGHTEN, IT WILL DO THE TRICK. OVERALL, ANOTHER GOOD DRIVER TAYLORMADE HAS MADE. BY FAR, BEST WOOD PRODUCERS IN GOLF.

    Wow distance

    Handicap: 11-15  Plays Golf: I play more than once a week  Dexterity: Right Hand

    I could not decide whether to try the R1 or the SLDR but chose the latter and was I surprised. I normally use a 9.5 driver but this demo club was 10.5 and the elevation and distance were incredible. It is also so easy to use that it builds confidence straight from the bag. Taylor Made you've done it again.

    The club was in very good condition but I was extremely surprised a month later to receive an invoice from Fedex for over 30 pounds. The original order included 19.99 USD shipping and said taxes may be due. I think this was insufficient and misleading. Has not ever happened on any other item I have bought on line. Had I known this I would not have bought the club

    Wanted to compare SLDR with M1. Still the great club for the price. Just less yardage with SLDR.

    Technology / Specs

    The TaylorMade SLDR driver is a successful blend of art and science, culminating in a driver for everyone with a sleek and clean appearance. TaylorMade's research and design technicians spent many hours reinventing their industry standard of Moveable Weight Technology with the creation of the SLDR driver. They have found ways to become more efficient at energy transfer, and have found a creative way to move the center of gravity. Let's reveal in deeper detail why this distance generating driver is turning heads.

    Wild and innovative clubhead designs have become the norm with many golf manufacturers. TaylorMade is going in a different direction: back to its roots. They are taking a step back from the white color scheme of past drivers and introducing a dark grey color for the entire crown of the club. They have added silver graphics to the clubhead to help with alignment purposes. The appearance of the SLDR driver is one of a traditional club, with a rounder clubhead and dark graphics making it appear smaller.

    TaylorMade has created a sliding track for a single twenty gram weight which can lock into twenty-one different positions. The middle notch on the track is painted in blue to indicate a neutral setting. The sliding weight is now easier than ever to adjust, sliding back and forth, from heel-to-toe. Modifying the weight from one extreme to the other can help fine tune your shot dispersion. The weight technology used in previous TaylorMade drivers consisted of one gram and ten gram weights. Those weights could be interchanged only with each other, which limited the fine tuning capability. The new revolutionary single weight shifts the center of gravity in the SLDR driver, placing it closer to the sole and face of the driver. This lower center of gravity creates a higher initial launch, and a forward center of gravity creates faster ball speeds. Combined higher launch and faster ball speeds help produce longer drives.

    The Loft-Sleeve on the shaft is a fine tuning feature of the golf club, which enhances the launch angle. It can be altered into a variety of twelve different positions to effectively change the loft of the driver ± 1.5 degrees from the standard loft setting. The SLDR is available in 8, 9.5, 10.5, and 12 degrees of loft. The left hander has the option of 9.5 and 10.5 degrees of loft.

    The shaft in the SLDR driver is the Fujikura Speeder Shaft. This shaft has a length of 45.5 inches and weighs 57 grams. It is available in medium, regular, and stiff flexes. There is a ladies' flex available that weighs 47 grams. For those seeking the TP version, the shaft is a Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft, with a length of 45.5 inches and weighing 65 grams. All colors and graphics of the shafts match that of the clubhead: grey, silver, and blue. These shafts work in concert with the clubhead in order to generate more speed and produce a great feel.

    The enhancements of weight technology and the adjustment of the center of gravity brought to life in the TaylorMade SLDR driver will benefit all golfers. The design of this driver has blended the power and gracefulness that is necessary to breed confidence. Go ahead and take a look at the best performing driver TaylorMade has every created and see if you agree.
