Tour Issue B Stamp SLDR Driver? Need Advice Please!

Johnny GolfballJohnny Golfball Members Posts: 151 ✭✭
Becoming a big fan of scouting my local golf shops for exotic shafts and tour issue heads. Came across this SLDR the other day and wanted some feedback.



Appears to have all the "Tour Issue" markings you would expect for the SLDR (Port ****, + COR testing sign and B Stamp). Would love some clarity on where the "B" should be on the serial number as well if "B Stamping" is different than their old "T Stamping."



I've included as best photos as I can get on my iphone.



Any help is much appreciated. Thanks WRX nation!

    Has the "+" stamp and a toe **** 100% tour issue, not sure about the B stamp, looks as if that was the batch. I have also seen Tour issue SLDRs ending a C serial number.

    Part of the serial batch number...not a designation like the "b" stamps of old.

    Real, as the "+" on the hosel indicates that it was COR tested.



    As regards the serial number containing a B I think you are a little confused. Early tour issue SLDR's contained the T serial (TDCxxx for 9.5 deg drivers) and (TDBxxx for 10.5 deg drivers) and did not have a toe ****.

    However, this practice was abandoned and later Tour issue SLDR's have retail serials with the "+" and the toe **** (post C Howell III disq at the Wyndham champ)



    There are some that exist with a B stamp but it is on the hosel next to the COR stamp

    I have two other SLDR heads that aren't tour issue and haven't noticed a huge difference in launch numbers but more so in sound and feel. Was this your experience as well?

    I noticed a difference in the sound but I wasn't sure whether to contribute that to the rogue or not. Haha
