It depends if you need a little more spin, or need to knock spin off.

SLDR driver is better for me but JetSpeed FW / Hybrids are better for me.

It would be interesting to see you hit a 10.5* SLDR, set to 9.75*, w/a similar shaft to the one you're now using.

The Speeder 6.3 TS, which is the standard TP shaft is close, think it could work?  OR is it that much different than the 7.2 TS?

I would think you would want to stay with a 7.2 TS for less spin. The  .3 Speeder have a bit more spin.

Beatiful combo right there, tipped?  But spins too much?

Discuss....

If you are looking to drop spin and don't need the latest and greatest give the R1 a shot. I have heard the white head is lower spin than the black. Don't know if their is any merit behind that but I dropped 500 rpm off my drives when I'm went from the 913d3 to the r1. I personally didn't care the the sldr at all. I was very inconsistent with the sldr.

I think you could save some money with the r1. Possibly even find one of the v2 heads for a steal now.

The Jetspeed and SLDR actually have comparable spin rates.
