TaylorMade SLDR S Driver and SLDR Irons Up Close pics and specs

11 posts in this topic

SLDR S is replacing the JetSpeed line. It's very similar to the standard SLDR driver with the a slightly more shallow face, deeper footprint, crown is matte silver and it's non-adjustable. Price will be $329, fairways, $229 and Rescues $179.

SLDR irons are replacing the R11 irons. Speed pocket in the 3-7 iron. Basically a progression set, wider soles in the long irons, more "player" look in the short irons. Irons will retail for $899 for an eight piece set.

I don't like the look of those irons at all. I guess the Jetspeed line didn't do that great.

I love my Speed Blade irons, however, when it comes to the driver I couldn't get the Xhot out of my bag.  It seemed like no matter what I tried, the Xhot was farther and more accurate.  I am actually quite excited about this latest TaylorMade driver.  That being said I don't understand why TaylorMade keeps creating golf clubs so quickly...it really feels to me like I am getting ripped off.

before I forget...$329...is that really the going price for the driver?

Yes, since it isn't adjustable they can sell it for less.

Have to say i really like the look of those fairways. Altough i hope the release of these will lower the price of the jetspeed fairways enough for me to consider one in a few months. Haven't actually hit the jetspeeds but have had a look at my friend's and with an inch cut from the shaft it feel and looked really good

I bought the SLDR S Driver in a 14 degree and the other day at the driving range. The guy next to me had a SLDR and when we compared them - the head of my driver seemed smaller than the original SLDR he had. Would this be the silver finish making it look like that or would mine (or his) possibly be fake? He had a 10.5 degree driver and my face on my 14 is much more closed

If anything the silver would make it look a little bigger. I think the fact that you can see more of the face is what is throwing your perception off.

I'm stupid. I really should have taken the pic of them. I can't find any online of both models. It looked "physically" smaller.

They are both 460cc driver heads. I believe the they have very similar crown shapes. The one thing I do see from the images on Taylormade's website is the SLDR S has more of the pain covering some of the face compared to the normal SLDR. So this might make it look a bit smaller I think. They should be very close to identical in size.

I'm skeptical because I bought mine on ebay. It wasn't from an authorized company but the guy had 100% positive feedback and almost 300 transactions. I took a chance. I registered it with the serial number on the hosel and got no errors. I wouldn't suspect anything had I not seen it with my own eyes. It looked like a 430 head next to a 460

    • do we really need fancy putters
      Yes feet, thank you for correcting that oversight or typo on my part.
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      That's the problem with getting clubs fitted. The amount you shell out to get fitted clubs leaves you with little or no money for other things. That's why I shop ebay and avoid the high overhead which the major sporting good stores and pro shops charge you.

      Lol Riverdale does most others no. Big reason I don't go out until after 3PM. I have to avoid the herds of golf zombies.
    • 2016 U.S. Open Prediction Contest with Sun Mountain
      Predict the Winner of the 2016 U.S. Open
      with The Sand Trap and Sun Mountain!   WHO do you think will WIN the U.S. Open in 2016 at Oakmont and what SCORE will they shoot? PLEASE READ the rules thoroughly. Each contest people are disqualified for simple mistakes. To enter, post your answer right here in this thread along with the text "I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain!" Note that you are NOT predicting who will finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd; you are picking three players to win and the score(s) they will shoot. The first choice carries tremendous weight (see the rules below for more), while the second and third choices exist simply in case we don't have a winner selected by anyone's first selection. The Prizes First Place One first-place winner will win a Sun Mountain Reflex golf push cart and a Sync golf bag (the color of which is up to you!): https://shop.sunmountain.com/best-product-reflex.html
      https://shop.sunmountain.com/sync-bag-18750-detail.html Reflex golf push carts from Sun Mountain fold and open easier, have a smaller folded footprint and weigh less than other golf carts. With a new, innovative folding process, Reflex is arguably the easiest cart on the market to fold and unfold. And, the Sync golf bag has a bottom molded specifically to sync with Sun Mountain carts. Second Place The second-place winner will win one of either a Three 5 golf carry bag or C-130 golf cart bag https://shop.sunmountain.com/best-product-c130.html
      https://shop.sunmountain.com/2015-superlite-3-5-17919-detail.html The Rules - All qualifying entries must be received no later than Wednesday, June 15, 2016 at Midnight eastern time zone (New York City).
      - Winners will be notified within 24 hours of the completion of The 2016 U.S. Open and will have 48 hours to claim their prize.
      - You must have a shipping address within the 50 United States of America or Canada.
      - You must be a registered member of The Sand Trap in good standing.
      - You must be aged eighteen (18) or older as of the date of entry.
      - Your answer must include the visible and bold text "I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain!", the FULL NAME (first and last, for the purposes of proper and unique identification) and the score in relation to par (+2, -4, E, etc.) of the player you are predicting to win the 2016 U.S. Open, as well as your 2nd and 3rd choices (same rules apply - full name, score in relation to par).
      - The Winner will be selected as the first person in the contest to correctly pick both the winner and the score. The runner up will be the second person to correctly pick the winner and score or be the first person to pick closest to the winner/score.
      - One entry per person and per household. Any additional entries or modifications invalidate all entries.
      - If we suspect fraud of any kind - suspicious multiple entries, for example - we reserve the right to award the prize to the next valid entry in the order established above. Details regarding the green, underlined rule: - It's very simple. The winner is the first person (who satisfies the other rules) to choose the correct winner and score with their first choice. If nobody picks the correct score, the winner is the first person to have the closest score for the correct winner. If nobody chooses the correct winner with their first choice, we repeat the process for everyone's second choice, and then the third. - In other words, if someone chooses Joe Smith for their first choice - at any score - and you choose him for your second choice, you've wasted your second choice. - Think of your picks like draft picks. Your second and third choices should be someone you don't think will be chosen in the first "round." Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize after being notified.. Again, please read the details about how to go about entering the contest and picking players. Don't pick top ten players for your 2nd and 3rd picks. Example for this contest would look like this: I am Staying Ahead of the Game with Sun Mountain! 1) Old Tom Morris -3
      2) Francis Ouimet +2
      3) Gene Sarazen -5
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      I was just curious, I know length is one of the larger factors in the difficulty of a course, but I wasn't sure if there's a rating that would be considered standard for a normal difficulty course.
