So these just popped up on the USGA conforming list.

Listed is a 430 (same colour scheme as regular SLDR 460) and a SLDR 430 TP (they got rid of the badge! and it also has a blacker colour scheme similar to SF TP 1.0)

So i was just wondering the differences between these two since they are both adjustable? Same stock shaft offerings as SLDR 460?

The listed lofts are also curious... 430 comes in 9, 10.5, 12 whilst 430 TP is 10 and 11

SLDR drivers actually look really nice. I think this is Taylormade's best looking and hopefully performing driver yet. I will look for one used in 6 months when the prices get to about 150.

I'll take the black one, please. Good grief, that's going to make three (3) different SLDR drivers in the rotation.

Calling it right now, SLDR 430 (Silver bottom) will be $399 with a "Ehh" shaft and the 430 "TP" will be $499 with a pretty good shaft, better looks and a higher tour presence. Because of all of that, everyone will buy the TP model when they probably belong in the regular 430 version or even the 460.

I am happy to see them making a 430 version, I just didn't know they were going to bring out 2. Unless I'm completely wrong and that "Tour Preferred/All Black" is the V2 example. In that case $499 just went to $999.

Also likely that they only offer 10 & 11 because lowering the loft opens the face, which I would suspect is the preference of 95% of the guys on tour.

Correct. Also, the tp version is extremely low spin so noone would need a loft less than 8.5

I sure hope not, all in all the blacked out head is sick but I mean the badge NEEDS TO BE ON THE SIDE OF THESE CLUBS! Why doesnt TMag get it through their thick heads?!

Can't wait to hit this head with an Oban White. And not a silly TMAG paint Oban that they are charging an arm and a leg for.

I really hope TMAG steps up their custom shaft offerings this year to go with these heads.

They're trying to really bring back the Tour Preferred line, and gain more respect in the "better players" market.  They believe they were getting too casual with the use of the "TP" with their recent releases, so they're trying to differentiate the new products from the lackluster TP releases of late.  As for the "I hit it 225 with a 40 yard cut," there are plenty of TM offerings in game improvement drivers.  That really isn't what they're trying to do; quite the opposite actually.  So is the badge going to be on the side?  Nope.  But is the driver going to perform well and help regain Taylormade's share of the low-handicap market?  Most likely.

Lol.  Only on WRX.  Justin Rose did fine without a TP badge at the US Open....I'm sure he would've set a scoring record had there been a TP badge on his clubs.....I don't see what the obsession with the "badge" If it's "Tour Preferred" or "Tour" that isn't sufficient?

I know this is slightly off topic but I saw today that TMaG is also releasing a 14* SLDR (non TP 460cc model) because people need a 14* driver now apparently.

The Black one is the Japanese TP Version.

I bet the other one is the US Version.

IMO the Black is the best looking head TM has produced since the SuperDeep.

No, that is not sufficient.  As you yourself have admitted, you don't get it, which is fine.  I care about the badge.   You apparently don't.  Either way is fine, just don't see the point of this post.
