It appears as though the 2014 golf season is going to be the year of sliders, SLDR or tracks. Whatever you want to call it, three major OEM’s have launched drivers with a movable weight that can effectively help you change the location of the center of gravity on your club as well as affect the way the face reacts coming into impact. First to this new technology is actually the Mizuno MP630 driver, which didn’t make too much noise last season. Then Taylormade launched their SLDR driver, last just about a month ago. Now, we’ve seen Callaway also has their hand in the slider department, with a recent spy pic of a Callaway prototype that has just surfaced online.
With all this hoopla, its no wonder the trademark office has seen a frenzy of trademarks being filed for any word remotely ‘slider-like’. And while Callaway and Taylormade like to fight it out, it’s funny that Mizuno in fact can say – “I did it first”. Looks like this is a new trend in the industry, so lets hold on to our hats for 2014. Enjoy the spy pic below from GolfWRX.
