Eh, dun ah. 

Not many tour players can handle it.

Unless you are on some tour I do not know about.

Ahhhhh.....So that explains it.

No wonder you are distracted and coming up short....those hooters on tour more than you can handle?!

I am surprised under 100mph swing speed is also won by SLDR

MGS tends to be independent IMHO, they say it as they see it, not bias by advertising dollars
I recall they were critical about TM at one time until relationship between TMag and MGS came to a head.... 

So they are not afraid to stand up against big corporate golf companies 
That's why you see Powerbilt also ranks highly for a not so major brand. It's all down to merit

the worst thing about playing shitty golf isn't losing money, it's not even the frustration of not being able to score what you think you're capable of shooting...it's bragging rights.....and right now, i have none after getting my ass kicked......so Mr Asahi, i shall go back to the hooters tour, humbly eat my buffalo wings and continue to wonder whether the hooters outlet in SG is being ironic given the lack of owls and the abundance of kleenex.....

Oh boy, you poor thing! 

I am more than willing to offer my wings to you to eat.

JCC soon?

p.s Heard that other than Kleenex, Durex also features prominently in local hooters.

Yup. Surprised me too. But if you look closely, there's not much difference between #1 and#15..... A handful of yards really.....

I would say golf digest's hotlist is crap where it's very obvious they're desperately trying to find something nice to say about every club for fear of offending anyone. 

Golf magazine's club test is much better but not enough data is given.....

Mygolfspy is the best by far......golfwrx is now owned by golf digest so a bit suspect now

Turbo, titleist chose not to participate in this.....

the SLDR is indeed impressive.

Played wif a friend using it recently.
Although my driving is much better and his carry is almost 20m shorter den mine,
the SLDR's roll is crazy. in the end, I can be out driven by 5m+

Thanks Francis for the informative read.. agree on the golf digest part  Very Happy  will tell the editor next time I see him that I'm not alone in this thinking.. hahaha..

Just wondering about how these drivers will match up to the JDM ones.. Understand Miura didn't wish to take part, how about the Crazy, Ryoma, Katana, XXIO, Romaro etc... 

Getting old, couldn't find the list of 23 drivers they tested..

 cheers

Bro,  I went to their demo in OCC a couple of weeks back.  Before I can even test it, the guy told me that he needs to change the slider as it is spoiled.  I asked the rep whether it is common and was met with a silent stare and a change of topic...

A buddy of mine, a solid 3 h'capper, just told me that he switched to the SLDR and moved from 8.5* in his old club to a 12* head as the club is really low launching.....i think justin rose is also using a 12* head......

Yes.  when i using the lower loft, it was like putting.

He was trying to get me touse the higher lofted head but looking how how the slider can be easily damaged... I decided to go lim kopi instead.  But then, that is my personal take...

It was mentioned that the test was done based on distance alone with no or minimal consideration to accuracy etc etc.
