SLDR Mini D.......thoroughly impressed
Well I took the plunge, had my club guy put it together, cut it to 43.5” and slapped a grip on it. I didn’t get a chance to go to the range during the week, prior to my round on Sunday, so it was either gonna work or it would be terrible and a waste of time. I was able to hit a few balls right before tee off and I must say that the club met and exceeded all of my expectations.
One member said something about the MOI etc wasn’t as high as the 3w of today and i wouldn’t be getting anything that I wasn’t already getting from my current 3w set up (Epic SZ). One thing I did notice right off the bat was the height I was able to get. I’m normally a low-mid launch player on all of my clubs, so my 3w would be no exception. Yes this translated into a good amount of roll which is great. But holy crap. This thing launched like you see the pros launch a 3w. And they weren’t ballooning balls either. They went high and kept going.
One of the flags was 255 out towards the end of the range and I was carrying it there, with range balls. Now don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t a “fire and forget” kind of club, I still had to put a good swing on it, but it truly felt like I was further and more consistent than with my current 3w.
I’ve got some time between now and my next tournament so I’m going to put it through the ringer and make sure it’s something i want to commit to, but as of now it’s definitelt a winner in my book. But like I said, I can completely understand why a lot of people disliked it.
