The TaylorMade SLDR Rescue features a stainless steel head with new cut-through Speed Pocket design that flexes with more efficiency and allows for a forward, low center of gravity, resulting in lower spin and increased ball speeds across the entire face. The TaylorMade loft-sleeve technology allows for 12 different loft settings +/- 1.5 degrees.
With the new cut-through speed pocket, the SLDR Hybrid flexes with more efficiency and promotes substantially increased ball speeds and lower spin characteristics. TaylorMade's engineers designed the speed pocket on the new SLDR Hybrid smaller, allowing them to save weight and move the CG lower and more forward for a win-win in performance and playability according to their product creation Senior Director Tom Olsavsky.
A shallow face combined with the new speed pocket technology also provides golfers with easier launch and playability with superior sustained speed off the face of the SLDR Hybrid. TaylorMade's loft-sleeve technology and adjustable hosel with twelve loft settings is also featured in the SLDR Hybrid that allows plus/minus 1.5 degrees of loft change to more easily dial in the launch angle of the SLDR and maximize your distance.
Visually, SLDR Hybrid incorporates the same rich, charcoal-gray crown and traditional shaping as the SLDR driver and fairway. The dark crown-colour contrasts beautifully with the silver-coloured clubface to make it easy to align the face accurately at address.
