TaylorMade has launched the SLDR S, a non-adjustable, cheaper version of the number one driver on tour, the SLDR.

While the SLDR S no longer features the adjustable hosel, it still includes the intuitive sliding weight track that promotes up to 30 yards of shot shape adjustment.

It also still features TaylorMade’s low and forward CG position that delivers a low spin ball flight for exceptional distance.

Talking about the new SLDR S, Benoit Vincent, vice president research and development at TaylorMade, told GM: “It’s no secret that high launch and low spin maximise driver distance, but some players think that only tour pros can benefit from lofting up. This is simply not true.

“By lofting up, you can generate serious distance gains regardless of swing speed with SLDR S, which has low and forward CG properties, along with a sliding weight that assists shot shape.”

The 460cc SLDR S comes in a new satin silver crown and black face for easy alignment. The £249 driver, which is £100 cheaper than the standard SLDR, has a Fujikura speeder 57 shaft.
