I tightened the weight again and it seems to be fine now. Scared the living daylights out of me because I didn't notice it until mid downswing and I thought the head had come off. It makes a clanking noise when moving around.

I bought one a month ago. Hit 4 drives over 330 today. Old r9 was 30 yards shorter. Doesn't feel as crisp but ball explodes off of face when you hit it near the center.

Tried one at Golfsmith. Just on pure numbers,
 
Ball speed = slightly faster than my Titliest 910D2
Spin = about 1000 rpm less. I actually hit one at 1600 RPM, it was a 9.5 X-stiff
Feel = Middle of the road, very clunky sound, not soft. 
Look = got to get use to the grey finish, it does line up very very well though
Forgiveness = great, the numbers didn't fluctuate much. Shots lower on the clubface do have much lower spin and go farther. 
 
Verdict, It fits me very well. 
 
I have to agree with that this driver is for an experienced golfer. If you are someone with slower swing speed, and need more carry. You'll have to be very careful selecting the driver shaft to get your launch angle higher and to give you a bit more spin. For a higher swing speeds, this driver is great because it is extremely low spin. 
 
Seriously considering investing in this driver. I am a person tends to have higher spin numbers and launches higher. So something like this would benefit me more.

I bought the 430 at 10.5* a couple weeks ago but have only had the chance to play on the course with it once, it took some adjustments right from the start like increased loft to 11.5* and slid weight over to fade about 4 clicks and the weight came loose with me also but I don't think I had it seated correctly in one of the adjustments. Okay this club is long and not very difficult to hit however I noticed teeing the ball lower seems to find the sweet spot more consistently or the hot spot as I like to call it. I think I may want to go up to even 12* with a bit more fade but a shaft change is definitely in the cards because once that happens this baby is going to be money, I probably would have liked the speeder 57 over the 65 because of the heavier head but was thinking how much I liked my cobra x speed with a 65 gram shaft but it had a lighter head only thing was I didn't like guys getting by me by 20 yards with the same swing speed even though I was accurate as hell with that club.

Is it lofting up if you turn 10.5 down to 9.0?

It is when I use to play a 910D2 turned down to a 8.75 degrees, and even that was too high for me. So I probably went up effectively 2 degrees.

I'll give one also once I change the shaft, I want to know the full potential first.

Does that mean you're looking to sell a Titleist 910D? My current driver, as you know, is around 30* closed at address.:-O

Just out of curiosity, what kind of value did they give you on the trade in. Seems like you're better of selling it via craigslist or something. They offered my $30 for mine when I inquired last year and it was damn near mint.

Around $48 dollars

You didn't test the waters selling it yourself? Surely it would have fetched more than that!

I could have, but I wanted the SLDR before my golf trip in mid April. I don't know how long it would have took me to sell the Titleist.

Well my SLDR 430 tp 10.5 is a work in progress. I did the Aldila Beta rip'd 70 stiff, still on neutral setting, hits a nice draw, which I need but is 30 yds shorter than my Titleist 910D3  which hits a nice fade, hopefully I can tweek it mechanically and not have to get an X-stiff shaft. keep ya posted..
