Bets are on it being more in line with the RBZ series than the R1, without variable weight plugs, and ASP., the sliding weight would only shift weight, not add it/remove it. No loft listed maybe positioned as a high lofted driver/"frankenwood"?

oh my god.. Mizuno Fast Track. [b]Might as well added a vertical slider slot too for front back CG adjustment.[/b]

Shhh - that's the SLDR2 which will be released about 3 months after the SLDR.

But don't tell anyone, it hasn't been developed yet :secret:

Yeesh.... my first impression is that this SLDR is an uglier version of technology that came out several years ago.

 

My prediction - mayhem and a nasty reception on WRX. Yet Taylormade's marketing division will earn their paychecks once again and most on here will eventually want one.

This doesn't look like a top level driver for them. Maybe one of the discount Dick's lines. I mean unless they combined the sliding weight with the benefits of the RBZ slot

Looks like loft adjustable from the hosel writing also.

I actually like it and would definitely give it a chance. I think the big appeal would be the simplicity of it. Instead of having to look in a manual to figure out what combo of weight position/sole angle/face this/loft that, all you need to do is slide the bar to move right to left.

I may be in the minority but I think it will be a fun one to try out!

Yeesh, thanks for that flashback, JBN. And by thanks, I mean thanks for nothing! :scare2::cheesy:

As far as this club goes...I hope its something for the Asian market, but somehow I doubt it.

Not bashing TM but first they copied Adams with the RBZ, then Odyssey with the Spider Blade and now Mizuno with the SLDR. I guess imitation is the greatest form of flattery...
[/quote]

how did TM copy Odyssey with Spider Blade? i assume you're referring to the versa line but TM launched the Spider S with white/black contrast in the fall. Also, TM pre-lined the daddy long legs and the spider blade to all their retail accounts last september long before Versa was even talked about.

I believe he meant the counter weighting, not necessarily copying really.
