may help to post a video of your swing to see what you are doing wrong in your swing that causes the slice.

I just started my swing thread too and it's not that hard at all.  You need a youtube account or something like it, but from there, it's quite simple.

I use to slice like a high dollar knife,so I feel yer pain. here's three things I learned and put to use:

1: hold shoulders closed as much as possible on the down swing. don't spin 'em.. this means hold the same shoulder rotation as in top of backswing. it helps promote inside to out plane....it'll take som practice...

2: make sure left wrist isn't hinged at top...flat wrist is essential.

3: flare front foot out slightly, not a lot, just enough to allow hips  to get outta the way on downswing.

these cured my slice/pushes/mis-hits....hopefully one or all these tips will help ya...

You need to rotate the shouldes correctly. The hips shift and rotate to the left while the right soulder moves down and out and the left shoulder moves up an in.

Look at these images of Anthony Kim's down swing.

Try pausing at the top which helps to slow things down.Golf swing is about tempo.The end of the grip/club will be pointing down to the golf ball as you start the backswing.Keep it pointing to the golf ball as long as possible during the downswing and your distance and contact will be so much better.Its easier said than done.I still struggle with it but making some good strides.

Well the weather here in Maryland gave us a chance to play golf yesterday and I got to use my new clubs on the course finally. Surprisingly it went better than I thought compared to what was happening on the driving range except one thing and that was the dreaded slice with the driver, I just can't get a handle on it and it's driving me crazy, it just makes for a rough day on the course.

Going to golf galaxy to to look for a new driver,any suggestions on a driver that might help curve the slice a little and make the learning process a little easier?

I'd recommend staying away from anything marketed as a draw or anti-slice driver. IMO they actually make the learning process significantly harder. Use a 3 wood or hybrid and work your way up to the driver. In my experience, the driver is all about getting your hips forward enough so you don't throw the clubhead outside. At least that is what works for me. YMMV.

EDIT* what kind of driver are you using now?

Yeah, and what kind of slice do you have?  Does it start left and curve back to the fairway, start straight and curve right, or start right and curve more right?

Then I think you are definitely best off by getting lessons and fixing your swing path.  Your swing path is out to in and no specialty driver can cure that.  Only lessons and practice.

EDIT:  So as far as drivers are concerned ... take Ernest's advice and stay away from any drivers advertising "Draw" or "anti-slice" because they won't help you. Just get what you're comfortable with.
