Pls la...the reason for buying on pre-order promo is the free golf. 

The other reason  maybe is for die hard TM fans who die die must play it before EVERYBODY else does. but for them, they dont need feedback mah. Any new club from TM is a must buy.

But if you really need to know how this club plays...wait till u can test it yourself on demo days. Skip forumer reviews, as if everyone swings the same or have same taste.

Hope it helps.

In a nutshell, it seems there are distance gains with the SLDR technology for the high handicapper all the way up through to pro level.

At the launch yesterday, saw a prominent local pro, who's known to be a long hitter, pound one 325 yards on the simulator. His regular driver gives him 305 yards.

Quite a few golfers of varying handicaps also said they hit it further and that the club had a solid stable hit.

The explanation was that the the lower forward CG makes the clubhead more stable, and it also moved the sweet spot lower down the face towards the sole, making the club more forgiving. So for those that top the ball, the ball now goes further.

If you're keen to try it out, there's a 'pre-order special' demo day at MBGC tomorrow Sat 17th, bays 50 and 51, from 10am to 4pm

Knowing me, however, this driver might as well be SLCR.

Now I know..... geek
