Looks really different than what Taylormade has been offering lately. I like the blue and it'll be even better if it has a black crown.

 

 

 

It looks different because this is a driver that Adams has been working on for over a year. It was such a great idea, and Taylor Made is out of new ideas...so Mark King picked up the phone and had them hand it over.

 

True story...I can't even make this $h(T up..

I've been thinking about this "stolen" idea. That Mizuno had it first. It's like RocketBladez and the Speed Pocket that turned out be from a Wilson iron from 1649. A concept done wrong in the past shouldn't prevent anyone from trying to do it right in the future.

 

 

Actually, Mizuno didn't have the idea first. Callaway has the first patent, TMag next and Mizzy's is the last of the 3.

Back to the slot on the rocketbladz I recall when Wilson had slot line irons in the 70's.

 

I do agree with Furu there's nothing wrong with taking a technology and improving on it - so long as no laws are being broken. We have courts for that.

 

I constantly am reading that driver technology has been maxed out for about three years or so - based on PGA driving distance stats that would seem to be correct - but we'll see I suppose.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Was at the Club yesterday working on my short game and the TMaG was there doing a Demo right next to the short game practice area. He walks over and asks "Would you like to Hit the new Taylormade SLDR Driver?" "why the Hell not" I reply....

 

Hit a few 6 irons to loosen up before hitting the SLDR. He asks me for the settings on my Nike Covert performance (10.5, right), Hands me a 10.5, 1 "Slide" to Fade. One thing that I notice immediately, the feel. 10 times better feeling at impact than the R1. Ball Flight a little high, so he hands me a 9.5 with the same Fade Bias setting. PIPE, PIPE, PIPE. Great feeling driver.

 

As far as numbers are concerned, Very similar to my Covert but but the Spin was at avg 500 RPM lower with the Red Bomb, probably due to the Fuel Shaft in the Covert.

I will say I looked at the SLDR last night as I was browsing the local PGA Tour store. I like the headshape and the color on the crown, except for the little silver plate near the rear of the head. Didn't hit the club because I was on limited time, but I'm sure I'll eventually try it out.
