Earlier this month, TaylorMade announced the introduction of the iron to the SLDR series (which previously only consisted of drivers, hybrids, and fairway woods). The SLDR will be made available starting June 6th (you can pre-order from TaylorMade). The SLDR iron combines the looks and responsiveness of a classic shaped iron with modern performance technology. The SLDR has the look of a classic player’s iron, but is appealing and playable to a wide range of golfing abilities – from tour pros to amateurs.
The TaylorMade SLDR utilizes ThruSlot Speed Pocket technology, which should help golfers launch the ball with more speed and with a higher launch angle than was capable with past player’s iron. The high flight will promote a steep descent angle for quick stops on the green. TayorMade also utilizes a discreetly placed badge on the back that will absorb and dampen unkind club vibration.
