TaylorMade’s Limited Edition SLDR White Driver: Bringing Back the White Crown
The number one driver on tour, the TaylorMade SLDR, is now available in a white finish. This limited edition driver features the same modern clubhead shape as the SLDR except it has a different color scheme; a white finish on the crown with a black button-back graphic for easy clubface alignment. Brian Bazzel, the senior director of metalwood product creation, gives a simple explanation as to why TaylorMade felt the need to release a white headed driver:
“The white crown with black button-back delivers a remarkable appearance at address. Many golfers fell in love with white when it came out in 2011, and now we are delivering a limited edition white SLDR with low and forward CG for more distance when you loft up.”
The SLDR features a low and forward center of gravity promoting higher launch angles with low spin rates. These two combinations create a lethal, long distance producing driver. The 20 gram sliding weight positioned towards the face of the club helps with the low center of gravity but brings additional support as well. The moveable weight is simple and easy to use; sliding back and forth and snapping into place with a twist of the tool. The different positions will create up to 30 yards of shot shape adjustability. The limited edition driver also comes equipped with TaylorMade’s loft sleeve, allowing you to increase or reduce loft up to 1.5 degrees with 12 different positions to fine tune and find optimal trajectory.
The Limited Edition SLDR White driver is available in 9.5, 10.5, 12, and 14 degrees of loft. The shaft on the driver is the Fujikura Speeder shaft with a length of 45.5 inches which will deliver consistency and promote faster ball speeds.
