Not really. Hitting up just reduces the spin loft on a driver, and increases the launch angle. So, for the SLDR, its just something to be conscious off. Meaning you'll probably need more loft if you hit, because you will see a significant drop in spin rate.
So lets say you hit down on the driver, you use a 10.5 degree driver. Lets say you launch it at about 9.5 degrees with 3500 rpm. Now if you just swing up, you'll probably end up launching at 11 with much less spin. Now lets say you pick up a SLDR and hit up. You'll probably launch the same loft, but your spin rate will drop even more. So now you need to go to maybe a 12 degree driver. This way you can get some more spin to gain your optimal carry distance, and you'll probably end up launching it around at 13-15 degrees.
Not exact numbers, just tossing them out as reference.
