SLDR is built to help you hit longer/straighter drives by promoting a high launch angle, lower spin-rate and faster ball speed. That's what makes SLDR our longest driver ever.*

SLDR's CG location is both low and forward, due in large part to the large, 20-gram sliding weight on the sole. That promotes a dramatic leap in distance.

Moving the CG forward in a driver is a monumental shift in metalwood thinking. For years it's been accepted that low and back was the ideal CG location for a driver. We've found this is not the best way to generate the most distance.

Long distance comes from combining of fast ball speed, high launch-angle and low spin-rate. We've discovered that moving the CG forward promotes more ball speed and less spin. To launch the ball on a high enough angle to maximize distance, we've discovered that most golfers benefit from increasing their loft, some by as much two or three degrees.

In addition to the low-forward CG benefits, the SLDR weight also represents a complete reinvention of movable weight, making it more effective and easier to use. Movable weight shifts the clubhead's CG horizontally toward either the heel, to promote a draw, or toward the toe, to promote a fade. SLDR's sliding weight allows you to shift the CG far enough to promote a side-to-side trajectory change of up to 30 yards.

The SLDR weight slides on the track and never comes loose from the clubhead. To slide the weight to any of the 21 positions on the track, simply loosen the screw, slide the weight, then tighten the screw. It takes as little as ten seconds. And the sole is marked with the words "fade" at the toe-end of the track and "draw" at the heel-end of the track to make it clear where you should position the weight to promote the shot-shape you want.

SLDR also incorporates our Loft-sleeve Technology, which allows you to adjust the loft. You can choose from 12 positions within a range of plus-or-minus 1.5 degrees of loft change. SLDR is available in three lofts - 9.5, 10.5 and HL.

Aesthetically, SLDR's confluence of shape, color and visual accents make it one of the most visually compelling clubs we've ever created. Its striking modern-classic shape, charcoal-gray crown and chrome "button-back" all adds up to a remarkably beautiful appearance at address. And the clean design of SLDR's movable weight mechanism, including the single, blue weight and the track it slides in makes its appearance equally striking.

*Driver claim based on robot testing of 9.5 drivers in neutral setting at approximately 150 mph ball speed.

    This club is great, I would highly recommend this club for all golfers because it is very well designed, durable, consistent, very long, and overall fun to have in your hands. The feel off the club head is really solid all around but not to hard like you are hitting a rock but still somewhat soft. Some people may complain about this club because they don't hit it straight or it is not very long, if I were you I would disregard all of those comments because the stock shaft in the SLDR is not meant for everybody. Getting fitted for the shaft is the best way to go. In my opinion this club is the best one out there it very well deserves 20/20 in the golf digest hot list.

    review for SLDR driver

    I thought it was hard to hit consistently. The technology sounds good but it did not work for me. PGA fitter got me into another Taylor driver that I am hitting much better.

      Comments about TaylorMade Mens SLDR Driver:

      I started with a Nike driver. I never felt confident with my drive. I decided to put money into a driver. So I selected this TaylorMade. I was hitting my drives with much more consistency. I am not saying this corrects bad habits but when you connect it feels great. My last driver even on good balls it never felt clean. If you are looking for a new driver I suggest at least adding this club to your list to test out.

              I have never felt comfortable with the goofy shaped newer drivers and colors. This one has a very pleasant traditional shape, sets up beautifully, and is very pleasant looking.

              I can finally put my 2005 driver in the basement!

              Comments about TaylorMade Mens SLDR Driver:

              I bought this driver about a month ago. The slidable draw-fade system is an interesting concept as it adds a lot of flexibility to the club. I recommend taking it to a driving range to play around with the weight in different spots. I've had to lower my swing arc / club trajectory to make ideal contact at impact and to reduce backspin to maximize distance. It's definitely a very quality club, but one that you'll need to spend some time tweaking to achieve the best results. I recommend hitting with it at the Superstore before purchasing it. The pro at the store recommended a stiff shaft for me, which also takes some getting used to. All in all--a very good product if you're looking to take your game to the next level.
