TaylorMade has been dominant in the driver market for the last couple of years and the new SLDR ladies driver looks set to help that trend continue.
It is built to help you hit longer and straighter drives by promoting a high launch angle, lower spin-rate and faster ball speed. This comes thanks to the SLDR’s centre of gravity location - low and forward, due in large part to the large, 20-gram sliding weight on the sole. It also has movable weights that allow you to customise your shot shape and trajectory through 12 positions.
W&G says: "The simplicity of the movable weight in this driver, a single blue weight and sliding track, means that you don't need to be a technology-whizz to figure out how to set it up. The sole is marked with the words “fade” at the toe-end and “draw” at the heel-end to make it clear where you should position the weight to promote the shot-shape you want. This driver does deliver explosive power that you can see working, however, don't pin your hopes on this club turning a boomerang shot into one that flies miraculously straight."
