SLDR fairways woods and Rescue clubs combine two of TaylorMade's most recent innovations: Speed Pocket technology and an exceptionally low-and-forward center of gravity (CG) location. Smaller is better. The new Speed Pocket is smaller (introduced in the RocketBallz fairways and Rescues), which actually makes it more efficient at increasing how fast the face flexes at impact, promoting faster initial ball speed across a wider portion of the face, which helps you get consistently long distance on every swing. The new Speed Pocket design also gave TaylorMade engineers room to move the club head's CG lower and farther forward, to a place that promotes faster ball speed and a lower spin-rate. We learned with the SLDR driver that a low-forward CG location allows many players to increase their loft to achieve the right combination of high-launch/low-spin that promotes maximum distance. The same thing goes for SLDR fairway and Rescues, which is where our Loft Sleeve technology serves such an important purpose, by allowing you to adjust the loft 1.5Degree up or down to dial in their optimal launch conditions. Visually, SLDR fairways and Rescues incorporate the same rich, charcoal-gray crown and traditional shaping as the SLDR driver. The dark crown-color contrasts beautifully with the silver-colored clubface to make it easy to align the face accurately at address.

I found I could hit it 190-200 yards and pretty straight most every time
Bought the 4 hybrid to fill the gap between the SpeedBlade 4 iron and the SLDR 5 wood. Turns out, it’s almost as long as my 5 wood, especially when I had it delofted to 20 degrees. My first round with it was on a tight beach links course and I ended up using this off the tee far more often that round than a fairway wood or driver. First shot with it was almost 200 yards down the middle. Over the course of the round, I found I could hit it 190-200 yards and pretty straight most every time. It was only slightly shorter off the ground but not more difficult to hit. Still, I got it to fill a gap so I changed it to 22 degrees and it’s about 10 yards shorter now. Gap is filled now. Still, I’m giving thought to swap the SLDR 5 wood with a SLDR 3 hybrid. I think I may be able it hit it further and more consistently than the 5 wood, which is still easier to hit than my old 5 wood. All in all, I’m pretty happy with it!
185 Yards Out? No problem…
I finally dumped my 4 iron and replaced it with the SLDR 4 hybrid…and I’m glad I did! For years I dreaded my 4 iron, I’m 180-190 yards out and I’m always saying to myself, “crap, I have to use my 4 iron”. Great swing thought. Now I say, “perfect! I get to use my 4 hybrid, let’s do this.” It builds confidence, what more do you want? I’ve also tinkered with the loft adjustment on the range, amazing, it really works. Fore!
Fantastic Club! Great Price…as Advertised, Shipped well!
Taylormade is just qualiT!! Played nicely, great condition, shipped fast and packaged well. Want to get all Taylormade clubs now…I’m hooked!
Solid golf club…
I bought a 2 and a 4 SLDR hybrids. As far as length goes, they fly as far as advertised – easily. However, since the heads are made out of titanium, the heads don’t have nearly as much mass in the head as some of the older TaylorMade rescue clubs. The older steel headed clubs had more mass and made it a LOT easier to hit it out of bad lies, buried lies, sand, etc. If you have a good lie or are hitting it off of a tee, then the SLDR’s perform great! However, if you have to dig it out of rough or out of a bad lie, I’d go with perhaps a Callaway, Adams or Ping which have a greater amount of mass concentrated in the head.
Just use it like a 5 iron and it will go farther and straighter than you expect
Straight and long
I ordered this #4 hybrid after I got the #3 hybrid for Christmas. I retired my 3 and 4 iron and my 3 works so well that my #3 wood has been put in a permanent time out. I don’t dread the long iron shots anymore.
Great golf club!
A Super Buy. Great Distance, very forgiving.
Its a fab rescue, you can get super Distance from it, Hit a 270yds tee off ( with a good roll) which is crazy for a 18 handicappers like me. Very forgiving.
Very good addition to my set.
