..............sight unseen and untested!!!!!!! I've never even held one in my hands before or seen one in person. LOL
I strongly believe buying a driver without testing in front of launch monitors is a foolish idea. At the very least, testing on the range is a must. I don't even think this is enough.............without seeing the data, it still may not be a good fit depending on the launch data and ball RPMs. The ball flight may look good in the air at the range, but you could be losing 10-20yds distance without even knowing it!!!! I've owned several TM drivers over the years that tested well in the past, so at least I have that going for me. LOL
With that said............
I just snapped my SW so I went online to buy a new one because I knew what kind I wanted. Wedges are different I see no problem ordering them online. It's all about the look, loft, bounce, and feel...etc, etc...
My current driver is a Taylor Made R9 Super TRI and it's getting long in the tooth. While ordering my wedge, impulse struck and I clicked "order now" on a new SDLR too. I've read a lot about the club and I've been interested in it since the release. Everything about this club "PREACHES".....use more loft than you are used to get the most out of this club design. I've used a 9-9.5 degree driver for as long as I can remember and the lowest degree available in the SDLR is 10degrees..................that isn't much more than my current driver so I drank the Cool Aid and ordered something way out of my comfort zone.............a 12degree!!! Aaaaargh.....I am so stupid!!....this could be a huge waste of $350.......LOL I've never hit a driver with this must loft in my life, but everything about this club suggests the design of the club requires much more loft than a player is accustomed to get the best results.
We'll see how it goes....LOL
I hope to have it by this weekend!! I can't believe I made this purchase without testing it first!
