The #1 Driver on Tour Now Has Company
SLDR fairways woods and Rescue clubs combine two of TaylorMade’s most recent innovations: Speed Pocket technology and an exceptionally low-and-forward center of gravity (CG) location.
Smaller is better. The new Speed Pocket is smaller (introduced in the RocketBallz fairways and Rescues), which actually makes it more efficient at increasing how fast the face flexes at impact, promoting faster initial ball speed across a wider portion of the face, which helps you get consistently long distance on every swing.
The new Speed Pocket design also gave TaylorMade engineers room to move the clubhead’s CG lower and farther forward, to a place that promotes faster ball speed and a lower spin-rate.
We learned with the SLDR driver that a low-forward CG location allows many players to increase their loft to achieve the right combination of high-launch / low-spin that promotes maximum distance. The same thing goes for SLDR fairway and Rescues, which is where our Loft Sleeve technology serves such an important purpose, by allowing you to adjust the loft 1.5° up or down to dial in their optimal launch conditions.
Visually, SLDR fairways and Rescues incorporate the same rich, charcoal-gray crown and traditional shaping as the SLDR driver. The dark crown-color contrasts beautifully with the silver-colored clubface to make it easy to align the face accurately at address .

- Easy to hit
- Off the deck
- Off The Tee
I've tried just about every fairway wood on the market over the last two seasons (Ping, Taylormade, Cobra, Nike, etc). While these clubs all felt good, they all provided me with the same problem, great off the tee, tough to hit off the deck, and very difficult to hit out of the rough. So I tried the Adams Tight Lies, and while this club was much easier to hit from any lie, I lost on average 20 to 30 yards. I picked up the Taylormade SLDR this morning, and it is by far the best fairway wood I have ever swung. It's compact head feels more traditional than most of the oversized fairway woods on the market, and it made it much easier to hit off the deck and out of the rough. It was easy to work either way and still be accurate, or just bomb it dead center, which gives me a lot of confidence. And best of all, this club is a beast! I have an average swing speed at best after multiple shoulder injuries, averaging about 230-250 yards with my old fairway woods. This club has added at least 25 yards to that and it's so easy to hit I'm not trying to kill the ball anymore, resulting in fewer bad swings. Great club.
