The SLDR Mini driver precisely blends the characteristics needed to achieve accuracy and distance off the tee. The head size of the SLDR Mini driver measures 260cc, which lands right between the SLDR driver (460cc) and the SLDR fairway wood (160cc). Its smaller head size, compared to the SLDR driver, allows for more control and accuracy off the tee. Its larger head size, compared to the SLDR fairway, allows the Mini driver to maintain driving distance. Without a doubt the SLDR mini driver is the best of both worlds: accuracy and distance.
TaylorMade is sticking with its successful technology of the past, and using it in the SLDR mini driver. The thick-thin crown technology varies the depth of the crown, allowing weight to be saved. The weight that’s been saved has been strategically repositioned to create a low and forward center of gravity (CG). The cut-through speed pocket enhances the low and forward CG by promoting fast ball speed and low spin. The inverted cone technology expands the forgiveness of the clubface, allowing mishit golf shots to maintain fast ball speeds.
The SLDR Mini driver is available in 12, 14, and 16 degrees of loft. The shaft in the SLDR Mini driver is the Fujikura Speeder Shaft with a length of 43.5 inches which will promote excellent control. For those seeking the TP version, the shaft is a Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft. This shaft will be heavier, closer to the weight used in a fairway wood.
