First Look: TaylorMade SLDR Rescue
TaylorMade's SLDR driver quickly established itself as the most-played driver on the PGA Tour. Now comes the complementary SLDR Rescue. A new “Speed Pocket” slot along the sole is more flexible and closer to the clubface than in the RocketBallz Stage 2 Tour Rescue for more consistent, faster ball speeds low on the face. Additional flexing also occurs around the perimeter of the slot. An adjustable hosel allows you to change loft by +/- 1.5 degrees (12 positions in all) from the stated loft. The club has a medium face depth and a compact look in the playing position. It comes in four lofts -- 17, 19, 21 and 24 degrees -- with a Fujikura Speeder 82H shaft. $219 each, $289 with a TP shaft. The SLDR Rescue (as well as SLDR fairway woods) will be at retail starting November 15.
