Golf gear: TaylorMade launches SLDR irons

After the success of the SLDR Driver and fairway woods, it’s probably not a surprise to see that TaylorMade have launched their SLDR iron series.

 The SLDR irons feature the infamous ‘Speed Pocket’ – a small slot behind the clubface – allowing the face to flex, rebound and send the ball on its way much faster. From the launch press release”

The SLDR iron’s remarkable sound and feel come from an advanced vibration-dampening system that includes the polymer that fills the Speed Pocket and a shock-absorbing badge positioned in the back cavity. The Speed Pocket is found in the soles of the SLDR 3-7 irons.

SLDR irons are available in 8-piece sets (4-PW, SW being the most popular) in a choice of KBS’s new Tour C-Taper 90 steel shaft (Regular or Stiff flex), which is engineered to promote high launch and spin control, and Fujikura graphite in three weights and flexes:, 77-grams (Stiff), 67 grams (Regular), and 57 grams (Senior). The irons feature a hand-polished chrome finish.

SLDR irons will become available at retail beginning June 15th for a recommended retail price of AUD$1,080/NZD$1,160 in steel and Graphite AUD$1,200/NZD$1,240.
