I have not seen a speed slot on any if the new clubs coming out in 2013? I thought a speed slit was gung to change the world of golf?

Even stranger is that the tour players that are not actually paid by TaylorMade to use their slotted clubs have all opted for gear made by someone else. Why is that?

Well, it's on nearly every fairway wood, and most hybrids. So I'm not sure what you are looking at.

Could be a fad that has come and gone. The speedslot was created awhile back and came back recently thanks to Taylormade and Nike.

We have not seen the rest of TMs line for next year either.  I'm sure they will have slots just like the new irons.

It looks like the new Adam's driver has a slot on it also. I don't think this technology is going away, it definitely has some merit to it.

3 Wood - TBD
5 Wood - Mizuno MX700, PF v2
4-PW - Adams CMB, C-Taper
Wedges - Mizuno T4 52/58, S400

The slot in the fairway woods is what is causing the drag in the grass. Leading edge needs more work. Hopefully they have fixed this.

Twenty years from now, a whole new gen. of WRX'ers are going to be laughing at the clubs we are using right now.

Have you hit any of them?
