    The standard AeroBurner sets up a bit closed, has a long shallow face and a flattened head compared to D shaped Taylormades like the SLDR, R15, etc. It's a long and easy to hit driver, but the head is really light which is combined with a too long 45.75" shaft. They come in both a 12° and a HL version, I'd checked them both out and cut the shaft down a bit. Lots of these around, so a definite first choice.



    The JetSpeed aesthetics did not click for many and was a huge bust for TM after the highly successful RBZ campaign. Besides, the new SLDR looked awesome and no one wanted a half-baked looking Jetspeed. It was an OK driver, but I'd take a pass on this one.



    The SLDR C has little to do with the original SLDR driver, it's an entirely different clubhead. The C looks like a blown up SLDR S Mini with the Cs sole plate coming directly off the Mini. The 12° might work out perfect for you, it launches the ball easy and high. Not sure why we keep discussing these as the production was limited and and they are not easy to find. You're better off with the more recent price point offerings like the AeroBurner Black and the RBZ Black. The RBZ Black looks to have a modified SLDR C Sole plate and could be an SLDR C in all black guise.




    You are correct that finding a (2015) SLDR-C Driver in 'new or mint condition'' is difficult now, but IMO, it's easily the best of the drivers mentioned by the OP, (especially those with 9.5* Loft and a Stiff Flex shaft).



    However, that said, you can still find these in 'used condition' on ebay, but 'Buyer Beware', for any of those that were previously 'demo clubs'.

    How do you know the 9.5 stiff ones are the 'best'ones?

    Bobcat, I see the demo club thing a lot on ebay and have wondered if it's always true, or if it's maybe just used to justify seeking below the manufacturer's restrictions on price...is it also sign of counterfeit goods or something?

    A 'demo club' is by no means synonymous with a 'counterfeit club', it simply means that many people of various skill levels have probably tested it inside a golf facility, and in the case of a driver or a fairway wood, it's unlikely that a headcover was ever placed on it when it was not in use. Such clubs are more likely to have sky marks, sole damage, and other blemishes as a result of being used as a demo club. Sometimes clubs are 'stamped' as a demo club, by the manufacturer, but usually not.



    You may also run across brand new clubs on ebay that have been stamped 'no warranty', and those clubs may be perfectly fine. TM does sends such clubs to ebay frequently. It simply means that the club was once at a Retail Outlet before, and for some reason, got returned to TM. It could just be 'unsold or merchandise' or merchandise reclaimed by TM for non-payment by the Retailer. These clubs probably won't be in the original packaging. Items stamped 'no warranty' by TM simply indicates that that club was returned to TM by one of their Authorized Retailers and TM does not send that merchandise out to Authorized Retailers as 2nd time. However, TM often sends this kind merchandise to certain ebay Sellers. As a result, you can often pick up a bargain on a brand new club simply because it has the 'no warranty' stamp. The ebay Sellers TM uses are required to indicate the club has the 'no warranty' stamp when listing the item on ebay...
