TaylorMade SLDR Irons 4-9PAS come stock with KBS’s new Tour C-Taper 90 steel shafts
The SLDR irons showcase TaylorMade’s ThruSlot Technology, an updated version of the company’s 2 mm-wide slot in the soles of the 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 irons that cuts through the iron heads to offer increased ball speeds, a higher launch angle and more consistency across the face for better distance control. According to TaylorMade, the Speed Pocket in the TaylorMade SLDR Irons has been engineered to promote “a higher ball flight, longer carry distances and more consistent gapping between irons than the older versions of the Speed Pocket.”
“Golfers want to hit their irons far, which has put us on a path to engineer iron sets that have driver-like face speed,” said Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s director of product creation for irons, putters and wedges. “To find that speed, we created ultra-thin faces, introduced Inverted Cone Technology and now an enhanced Speed Pocket with ThruSlot Technology.
