Taylormade Sldr Motor: Editor Review
TaylorMade’s SLDR driver has a higher center of gravitation and more forward trajectory than any other TaylorMade model. Golfers can launch their ball higher with less spin. This is key for longer drivers. You also get a slightly higher ball speed and more forgiveness for shots that are low to the face. It has a handsome grey metallic crown instead of the usual white. The SLDR reminds us much of TaylorMade’s 300 Series driver from years past. You can tune it much better with its 20-gram sliding weight. This is in addition to being faster and more accurate than TaylorMade’s adjustable weight systems.
Cons: The SLDR doesn’t have a “face angle adjuster” like previous drivers from TaylorMade, which will force some golfers to manipulate the face angle to their desired position at address. There is no “one-size-fits-all” driver. This is both good and bad. The SLDR drivers offer three-degree adjustability (1.25 degrees higher or lower) that is one degree less than the R1. The four heads offer lofts ranging from 6.5 to 13.5 degrees, three degrees more than the R1. TaylorMade’s glossy gray crowns will appeal to those who like TaylorMade’s matte white crowns and the R1’s cool racing stripe.

Golfwrx Spotlight: Tour Edge Exotics C721 Driver
Tour Edge has been a leader in high-end hybrid and fairway wood performance for many years with its Exotics collection of golf clubs. It has been producing high-quality products for years, and the Chicago-based company is gaining a lot of attention from golfers. The new line of C721 drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids take yet another big leap forward from last year’s EXS line.
C721 takes technology from the 2020 EXS range and improves it. I know it is a little cliche when companies say every model is their best ever, but Tour Edge is 100 percent right this time.
Unboxing the C721 brought back memories of the Tour Edge driver. I noticed the biggest difference in my eyes is the extra bulge that gives it a smoother and more rounder topline.
C721’s overall form is slightly stretched front to back. This gives it a slight triangular appearance. Two carbon-fiber wings and a titanium spine are part of the Ridgeback. They add stability to the head and provide forgiveness. However, they can be combined and used as an additional aiming device.
Review: Ping’S G400 And G400 Lst Drivers
Ping’s G30 driver was the first time I saw it. That was July 2014. I was in Phoenix at Ping’s headquarters. The era was dominated by super-low spin drivers. Their forward center of gravity helped golfers achieve launch conditions that were beyond their wildest expectations. I was one of them, as well as many others in my business. We spent many launch monitoring sessions trying to find out the best way to increase distance with these heavy knuckleballs. Bad news: Forward-CG drivers are by design very difficult to control. Bad shots were really short and crooked.
Before I knew the G30 was a big deal, Marty Jertson , Ping’s Director of Product Development, explained to me his vision for the perfect driver inside a conference room at Ping Headquarters. In his eyes, the perfect driver didn’t have the low, forward center of gravity (CG) that was being touted at the time. Its CG was located as low and as rearward in the driver head as possible, which he said would offer the best of both worlds: optimized launch conditions on good shots, as well as the best possible forgiveness on bad shots.
While it took a while to find the right driver (and is still a lot of work), Jertson was happy that Ping was finally able to bring the G30 to life. It was an impressive testament to Jertson’s vision. Because of its rear-CG design, it provided great distance for both good and bad shots. Additionally, the driver was extremely straight. The G30 sold incredibly well and, as a result, the industry mostly shifted away from forward-CG drivers.
Ping recently released yet another contraintuitive driver. The company shrunk the size of its new G400 drivers in a climate where full-size drivers have become the norm. Although the actual volume is 15 cubic meters smaller, this difference can be seen at street address. Comparable to their Ping G replacements (which were replaced by the G30), it looks as if the G400’s cut carbs.

Taylormade Sldr Driver Review: How Low is the Spin?
Paul Club Reviews and Golf Product Reviews 6 comments This review covers the 460cc TaylorMade SLDR driver.
High-spinners, as well other golfers, will appreciate the larger clubhead of the 460SLDR driver.
What does it feel like?
I debated heavily whether or not I should mention the Taylor. The “First Impressions” section reflected the feelings of the SLDR driver. Not necessarily from an “impact” perspective, but more because of its “presence.” What the hell am I talking about? The SLDR was very heavy. I remember thinking that when I got it, it would be a big deal. A hammer is a good example of this. The balance will be affected by how you adjust the sliding weight. It’s crucial to set the weighting correctly. A few players add an additional weight to the track for greater precision.
In addition to its usual sensations, the SLDR provides a very solid feeling at impact. In terms of energy transfer, a ball placed in the centre of the face is like a steel wall winning the fight of resistance.
The Best Place to Buy an Online Driver
Amazon currently has limited availability, so I wouldn’t recommend it. You can also find lower prices elsewhere. Amazon isn’t as reliable as it used to be for purchasing golf clubs.
Although the SLDR model may be quite outdated, it is still available in a few places online. These two sites offer great deals on driver purchase.
The first is e. Bay , which is a fantastic source for new and used SLDR drivers.
Global Golf, the second company is available. They offer many discounts and policy options (check out their current coupons codes) that will make your purchase process easy. Their stock could soon run out.
