Taylormade has been releasing their new line of Drivers, Hybrids, and Fairway Woods under the name "SLDR". Now Taylormade has designed a new iron under the same name. Lets take a look at these new irons that Taylormade has claimed.
The Taylormade SLDR irons combined the classic and compact shape that better players want with cutting-edge performance-enhancing technologies that make this iron long and forgiving. The Speed Pocket features the same 'handlebar' shape on the sole as recent models, offering more forgiveness in the toe and heel, but this time around the slot goes entirely through the club thanks to TaylorMade's latest ThruSlot Technology.
SLDR irons are replacing the taylormade burner 2.0 irons. Speed pocket in the 3-7 iron. Basically a progression set, wider soles in the long irons, more "player" look in the short irons. With a deep, undercut cavity behind the thin face and the ThruSlot cutting entirely through the clubhead, TaylorMade believe the SLDR irons create even more flex and speed at impact.
The entire G30 series benefits from new face technologies and materials, including the introduction of T9S titanium in the drivers, which results in thinner faces and weight savings that help position the CG low and back. The fairway woods utilize a high-strength Carpenter 475 steel in the face, and the hybrids are heat treated with an H900 process. Both result in hotter, more forgiving faces. The G30 iron face is thinner for higher ball speeds while being stabilized by a new custom tuning port design for predictable distance control.
The Ping G30 driver option is engineered for players whose shots typically end up right of the intended target. In player testing, the G30 SF Tec driver, which features weight closer to the heel and lighter swingweights, improved shot bend by 12 yards when compared to the G30 standard driver.
PING has also increased the range of adjustability to five loft positions in the driver and fairway woods while maintaining the same mass and outer diameter as the company’s fixed hosels, providing the benefits of adjustability with no sacrifice in performance. The lightweight hosel allows golfers to increase or decrease loft 6/10 of a degree or 1 full degree to optimize launch conditions.
