The move was no doubt in reaction to strong customer demand, seeing how TaylorMade pumped out many white woods (the R11, R11S, RBZ, R1, and RBZ stage 2). And while white ‘may’ be on the way out, the demand is still there.
White TaylorMade SLDR drivers will retail for $399 and come in lofts of 9.5, 10.5, 12 and 14 degrees. Stock shaft is the Fujikura Speeder 57 (in your choice of senior, regular, still and x-stiff). The pre-order is on now, but look for them on store shelves May 2, 2014.
