TaylorMade SLDR Irons
FANTASTIC SLDR became a brand name more than a descriptive name when the SLDR fairways and SLDR hybrids were launched without sliding anything apart from the money from your wallet.TaylorMade’s SLDR irons are a completely new product from the company, with a size that’s smaller than the SpeedBlade irons but not as small as TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred iron line. TaylorMade designed the new SLDR irons with “classic shaping” and thin toplines and soles that make them playable for both high-handicap golfers as well as professionals — a big statement about the forgiveness of the irons.
The SLDR iron is a classic example of this thanks to the new Speed Pocket. The SLDR irons showcase TaylorMade’s ThruSlot Technology, an updated version of the company’s 2 mm-wide slot in the soles of the 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 irons that cuts through the iron heads to offer increased ball speeds, a higher launch angle and more consistency across the face for better distance control. According to TaylorMade, the Speed Pocket in the TaylorMade SLDR Irons has been engineered to promote “a higher ball flight, longer carry distances and more consistent gapping between irons than the older versions of the Speed Pocket.”
The new SLDR irons come stock with KBS’s new Tour C-Taper 90 steel shafts or a Fujikura graphite option. Either shaft option, you'll be set with the latest TaylorMade technology and design sure to give your game better distance-control and consistency along with premium TaylorMade playability.
“Golfers want to hit their irons far, which has put us on a path to engineer iron sets that have driver-like face speed,” said Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s director of product creation for irons, putters and wedges. “To find that speed, we created ultra-thin faces, introduced Inverted Cone Technology and now an enhanced Speed Pocket with ThruSlot Technology. The ThruSlot extends all the way through the bottom cavity, and works in conjunction with the ultra-thin clubface and deep undercut to promote tremendous face-flex at impact.”
