Will this be in white only or is a black model available also?

Looks nice and a good progression from the R11S. I don't know wtf happened with the R1 and SLDR color schemes and designs. :D

Honestly, the first TM driver in awhile that doesn't look "premium." Looks cheap to me. I hope it performs because I'm not interested based off looks alone.

Maybe I'll change my tune if I see it in person.

The 430 is only available in white.
[/quote] I can make an exception for the 430 head if it performs half as good at the SLDR

You want it to be half as good as the sldr? Interesting

I don't get it. Why bring back the white, I thought everyone just agreed we were past that. And I just do t see this being a great driver. If it's just another SLDR then I can understand the minor improvements, but the new name makes me wonder why there's no real inovation. And God, are the burner models and ugly mess of technical compromises that is just shaming the burner history. I mean with cobra releasing some awesome clubs with some real inovation and titliest offering some real distance, I don't see why you'd get this

I agree. Especially the hybrid. It looks like a knock-off Adams hybrid

I think the first few responses in this thread show how polarizing the white club head is. I personally am a fan of darker club heads as they appear smaller at address, at least to my eye.
