A revolution in movable-weight technology, the TAYLORMADE® men's SLDR driver allows a side-to-side trajectory change of up to 30 yards with one simple adjustment. The large, 20-gram sliding weight also moves the CG location low and forward for high launch, lower spin rate, and faster ball speed, making the SLDR the longest TAYLORMADE® driver yet. Loft-sleeve technology lets you adjust the loft up to 1.5 degrees in either direction.

Taylormade has been making movable weight technology for a long time so I was a bit skeptical at first when another one came out. This club is great. The face and clubhead are appealing at address; looks more traditional, not bulky. I moved the weight slightly toward "draw". The actual heel to toe balance wasn't all that noticeable, but the ball trajectory and spin were. It felt like a much more forgiving cousin to my favorite TM driver, the R9 Superdeep. I'd love to hit the TP with an RIP NV 65 but the stock is more than sufficient.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
