The new SLDR S line of TaylorMade metalwoods all feature the same low and forward CG as the original SLDR line, which is aimed at producing faster ball speeds, higher launch angles, lower spin rates, and more distance. Unlike the original SLDR, the SLDR S metalwoods do not feature adjustable hosel technology, but with a wide variety of lofts available they can be fitted to just about any player. SLDR S metalwoods also feature shallower clubfaces and slightly more low-profile clubheads to make them more playable for players with non-Tour swing speeds. However, like the original SLDR line, the new clubs provide added benefits when played with higher lofts.
“It’s no secret that high launch and low spin maximize driver distance, but some players think that only Tour pros can benefit from lofting up with low forward CG,” said TaylorMade Chief Technical Officer, Benoit Vincent. “This is simply not true. By lofting up, you can generate serious distance regardless of swing speed with SLDR S, which has low and forward CG properties, along with a sliding weight that assists shot shape.”
