The flagship SLDR franchise at TaylorMade, which has grown steadily since its introduction, is about to undergo a massive expansion. On Monday, the company showed off its forthcoming Taylormade SLDR TP driver, fairway woods and rescue clubs along with the first edition of SLDR irons.
The TaylorMade SLDR Irons, like the new SLDR S woods, are designed for golfers of all skill levels. The 3- through 7-irons include the Speed Pocket, a narrow slot cut in the sole intended to generate more face flex, that is also found in other recent TaylorMade irons like the RocketBladez, while the 8- and 9-irons feature a solid sole.
The Speed Pocket permits the face to rebound farther and more easily upon impact, particularly when a golfer hits the ball low on the face. The improved flex, says TaylorMade, promotes increased Coefficient of Restitution – or springiness – and can help most golfers add several yards per shot. The Speed Pocket also helps to lower the Center of Gravity, promoting a higher launch angle, higher peak trajectory and a steep, quick-stopping descent.
That, TaylorMade says, increases ball speed and elevates the launch angle to boost distance, and provides more control because shots land on a steep angle. In addition, TaylorMade lowered the taylormade speedblade irons center of gravity to further increase the launch angle and to put more power behind shots hit low on the clubface – which the company says happens almost three-quarters of the time.
The SpeedBlade continues the TaylorMade trend of cutting Speed Pockets into their clubheads, as found in such clubs as the Taylormade RocketBladez irons and RocketBallz woods. The Speed Pocket is a deep slot that runs from heel to toe on the sole just behind the clubface that allows the face to flex and rebound faster.
