TaylorMade introduces new sliding-weight driver, SLDR

In the last few years, TaylorMade has been known as much for the paint color on top of their drivers as the parts that make them. That's likely to change with a new driver the company is testing out on the world's tours this week.

TaylorMade is testing a new driver, called SLDR, that has an adjustable weight on the sole of the club. Move the weight to the heel to promote a draw, the other way for a fade. Altogether, the 460cc club has 16 different positions to move the weight. It's an adjustable club as well, with the ability to change the loft.

The technology conjures up images of Mizuno's Fast Track technology from 2009-10, which allowed a player to move a weight around the outer perimeter of the driver's sole.

The company is putting the prototypes in the hands of their staffers this week at the John Deere Classic on the PGA Tour and the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open on the European Tour.

It is unclear if the SLDR will eventually make it to market.
