Taylor Made SLDR - Page 3

I have had the SLDR 460 for two weeks. Since I began using it, I have had more birdies than in the previous weeks that make up this golf season. I credit that to the additional distance off the tee that puts me closer to the green. I am sure that is due partially to all the reasons TM tells us but since I no longer slice the drive, the yardage I lost from the ball rolling perpendicular to the fairway is now down the fairway. I admit the first time I looked down at the club head, it was much different that what I was accustomed and the trajectory of the ball made me think I had popped it up. But when I got to the ball, I was a good 20 yards further than what I was accustomed to. I struggle with how high to set the ball on the tee but with trial and error, I am figuring that out. I am becoming more comfortable with teeing the ball up. (I would like to hear from others on that topic as well as the adjustments that can be made in general such as the slide) It comes with the slide set one notch toward Draw and that seems to be right for me. It has been a score changer for me. Hope that helps.
Do you know what the swing weight is now? I've read that a problem with shortening it is the swing weight gets thrown off and the only way to resolve it without losing the benefit of the adjustable weight, is to add another weight to the head in the neutral position.
I was at Golfsmith today and hit the SLDR driver. Felt really nice with decent distance but I pushed them to the right. I then hit the Ping G30, same distance but to the right as well. I had brought my cobra Amp Cell in for a regrip and hit that on the launch monitor as well, hit the amp cell straighter and farther, by about 10 yards on average. Maybe it is because I am use to my amp cell driver but it performed the best. If you haven't hit the cobra woods I suggest you give them a try. their fairway woods are killer as well, I play their 3 wood and hybrids as well. Having said that I do have the TM 5 wood which I really like, as you can see I am not hung up an a particular maker. I guess the bottom line is try as many clubs as you can and don't get fooled by all the hype. Go with what works for you.
Really? I didn't know that as did the guy who sold me the shorter shaft obviously, I have lost all confidence in his abilities when it comes to working on clubs especially mine that is. Anyway I got rid of the SLDR a couple months ago because I just couldn't get dialed into this club though I did correct a swing flaw shortly after that that would have helped I still think I made the right move. I really would like to get a Titleist 913D3 with a good quality matching shaft or spend the bucks on the 915 just depends but I have tried the 913d3 from a friend of mine and I just love the sound and feel that club gives just inspires confidence.
I bought a 460s SDLRs nearly 2 weeks ago, but my golf game is in a tailspin right now and I don't think I can give a review. I hit it terrible, but I blame myself. My previous driver was an R9 Super-tri that I hit great for a few years, but my swing has devolved into producing a duck hook. I do the same with the SDLR...
I decided to try to play a fade with every club in the bag, and now I can't hit anything. LOL
My golf game is in a bad place right now.........me trying to give a review would be pointless.
