TaylorMade SLDR Driver [$399.99] 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 TaylorMade’s 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. TaylorMade says that they found that this is not the best way to generate the most distance. In addition, the SLDR weight is 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.
