INTRODUCING SLDR 430

 

Better players who like to bend the ball to the right or left off the tee will love SLDR 430, with its slightly smaller head size of 430cc that makes it easier to impart shot-shaping sidespin. Like the original, full-size SLDR driver, SLDR 430 is engineered with a low-forward CG location.

 

Positioning the CG low and forward dramatically changes the way a TaylorMade driver behaves at impact by promoting faster ball speed and a lower spin-rate – two of the three key ingredients that generate more distance. The third ingredient is an appropriately high launch angle. You can achieve that by increasing your loft (we call it “lofting up”) using SLDR 430’s Loft-Sleeve technology. The need to “loft up” with a low-forward CG is so essential that we’re offering SLDR 430 not only in 9.5° and 10.5°, but also 12°. If that sounds crazy, consider that numerous Tour pros are playing 12° SLDR drivers for one reason – they’re getting big boosts in distance.

 

SLDR 430 also incorporates the same innovative sliding weight mechanism TaylorMade introduced with the SLDR 460. A blue 20-gram weight slides on a track located on the front of the sole. This sliding weight shifts the clubhead’s CG horizontally toward either the heel, to promote a draw, or toward the toe, to promote a fade. SLDR movable weight technology delivers six millimeters of CG movement – that’s 50% more than the R1 driver – promoting a  side-to-side trajectory change of up to 30 yards. The SLDR weight slides on a 21-point track system and never comes loose from the clubhead, and repositioning it is a quick and simple process.

I have been playing a R1 VS 440 head for some time. It sets up at 3 degrees open with 9 degrees of loft. I never thought it would go to the closet until I played this driver. My favorite TM driver was the 510 TP. I prefer drivers with smaller heads. Hit the 460 and 430 on trackman, and my contact was better with 430, and dispertion was better. Got the 9 degree SLDR and my first 4 drives were dead left on the course. Face looked closed. Opened the face all the way, and from there on out it was hammer time. Did not miss another fairway and hit some of the longest/straightest drives I can recall. Did not adjust the weight on the sole at all. It has been a while since I have had a driver that I get excited about hitting, but TM did it again. Thanks!

Got the SLDR 430 today and took it out on the range. First impression was good as the head is not that big! I love that Taylormade has "gone back to basics" with this driver, starting with the colour. No more funny weights and gadgets, just plain driver with a great colour scheme. The adjustable loft is a real user this time because of the driver spinning so low. I normally use 9.5" of loft but because of the low spinning performance I had to up the loft to 10.5". My mistakes were reduced "this must sound funny" but it has because the ball does not spin that much any more, thus reducing side spin as well when hitting a "bad" shot. The flight was penetrating and when the ball hit the ground it releases giving good forward roll for more distance. The sound is well tuned, really great on the ear and the weight allowed me to fine tune the flight ! The driver is well build and finished including a cool looking head cover ! Well done Taylormade, keep up the good work.
