Stuart Pollock says:

That headcover would be in the bin so fast haha. Not a fan of the white and
just got my SLDR recently so no need for anything for a while.

Dunter85 says:

With there being more forgiving settings, would this suit mid-high

JAG sixtyfive says:

I know it’s not been fit properly yet, but only 1 shot out of the 5 is on
the fairway Rick!! It’s ok hitting it consistently over 300, but if you’re
hitting your second shots from behind trees or out of thick rough 80% of
the time, it’s no fun, and perhaps not so good after all. As I said,
perhaps a shaft change to dial things in a touch may help, but 20% of
fairways hit is nothing to shout about. 10 yards extra? But in the trees?
or 10 yards less but down the middle? Phone a friend?? The total obsession
with distance nowadays without looking at the whole package of consistency
of ball flight, dispersion etc etc, is a little frustrating and misleading
for the consumer???? Fairways and Greens. But if you can dial the
dispersion in a good deal, it could be very good for you.

Michael Rolton says:

Thanks for another great video. The headcover might not look too sharp but
it looks easier easier to get on and off, especially in the rain. 

Matthew Collins says:

The Kylie shaft is good, but the Jason one is super. Danni is rubbish

Sgt Pepper says:

Just stick a 2nd weight in your Sldr..

David Bozaan says:

Rick, looks like for you this beats the Nike Vapor Pro, yes?

Christoph Kautz says:

nice review! if i understood it right you changed the shaft on the 430
model but used the stock shaft in your 460 review? so you can’t really
compare those numbers, right?

gbvoul says:

Rick sounds like a ShopAtHome/QVC host in this vid.

louie says:

JAG sixtyfive, lets see your launch monitor videos.

Josh Lee says:

Hey Rick, been watching your vids for about a month now and really digging
all the reviews, tips, etc. Not sure whether you’ve ever done this, but
it’d be very helpful if you could go over the significance of each measured
variable. For example, with your swing speed, you may be reaching for
“low” spin rate, but that’s not necessarily the case for slower swing
speeds. Keep up the great work!

daleswede says:

So i currently use the 430 SLDR, with the TP Stiff shaft, and I love it.
I’m a generally ‘strong’ driver of the ball, and when the SLDR is on form,
I cannot fault it. My Trackman stats are:
– Club head speed (109mph)
– Ball speed (158mph)
– 2,220 rpm
My real question: Is the forgiveness on ‘off centre’ hits for the R15
enough of a difference to consider a change from the SLDR?

Great review !!

Martyn Murfitt-Wrather says:

Hi Rick – how about getting an extra weight for your current SLDR (they are
available) and then tune that and set it up against the new R15 – that way
you will get to see a true comparison of the two and the
progress/improvements ? For my money the Titleist 915 is a better
performing/looking club & I have already put it on the list for Santa!

michael zhang says:

Guys chill out about Rick’s draw, Zach Johnson hits a draw, up to 10 yards,
but yet he is one of the most accurate players on tour. All Rick has to do
on the course is just aim 10 yards right of the middle of the fairway,just
like what Zach Johnson does.

Jaellan Cruz says:

Nice review Rick! I currently use a SLDR with the adjustable loft on the
hosel as well. From this video it looks like I’ll be able to use the same
shaft and pop on the R15 on my SLDR shaft. Is that correct? 

Won Ton says:

Rick, if you like the SLDR, why not just put another sliding weight on it
and have the same forgiveness as the R15?
For us regular people who has to spend 400-500 quids on a new driver,
wouldn’t this solution be much cheaper?
Honestly, I can’t keep up with all of these TM drivers.

Cace Smith says:

Great review Rick! That 430 is a bomber for you. Once you get it dialed
in…wow. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of TM, as I just can’t get
along with their equipment. But this could be huge for fans of their brand
and those who hit the SLDR well.

Nicholas Ramos says:

Bio cell + with all the numbers you are doing now please. 

Ronald Kuntoro says:

Hi Rick, nice review. What do you think about the forgiveness of R15 430
compared to SLDR 430? Also do you still need to loft up with R15? You
said it’s slightly higher launching. 

Lui Craddock says:

Couldn’t agree more. I wanted to like the SLDR a lot, but couldn’t get
consistent numbers out of it. If this is as good and forgiving as it is
supposed to be… I might be sacrificing people on my Christmas list this
year to afford this!

eddie brown says:

He hit them all left….we have no idea if moving the weights would have
corrected that because he didn’t do it during the test. Once again, what
does it matter HOW far it goes, if it’s out of play.

M Hendon says:

Rick you rave about the Titleist 915D3 and now this Taylor made R15 but
what about the Srixon Z 545. That’s the only driver I’ve seen you hit ball
speeds above 170 with. I’d like to see you do a side by side with it versus
the Titleist and the Taylormade

oskarfahlstrom says:

Not to keen on this white/black colour scheme. But bring it out in black
with silver face and I’m sold!

Solid numbers Rick! Will we see this or the 915 D3 in the bag for the
Turkey trip? 

Clinton van Zyl says:

Hi Rick, great video as usual. Watching you hit this and then hitting the
915 D3 I notice your clubhead speed is significantly faster with this. Any
reason or were you just swinging better this day? Cheers. 

Muscat Vin says:

Rick, I have recently added the Ping Rapture 3W to my bag as a backup
driver. It is about 260cc and 13 degrees. It is super long and accurate.
It would be interesting to see how it compare to the new drivers. 

Justin Scheve says:

Awesome numbers! I game the SLDR 430 as well and I can’t wait to try this

Anders Pedersen says:

Where’s the new Cobras ??? 😀 cant wait to bring them into the mix… atm,
my monies on the Titleist, WOW they’re awesome, considering one in allblack

Michael J. Malloy says:

Rick,have you tried the Aldila Rogue shaft in the R15 that you have in the
SLDR 430 yet?

Derek Johnson says:

Like the club reviews!!! Also when you do the head to head club
competition’s. Do you plan on doing a competition with hybrid clubs. If so
maybe include your adams dhy club with others. Maybe review for a game
improvement aspect. Keep up the great work!!!

Brian Brooks says:

Compare Callaway alpha 430 with your shaft used in R15 430.

Danny Worsdale says:

Very impressive taylormade! Great review rick love the enthusiasm, keep it
up. When’s the aero burner review coming? 

Andrew Alderson says:

Wow you enjoyed smashing those 5 balls. Another good find by the boys at TM
– we shall see 

Brass Pipe says:

Hello Rick,
Thank you for the video, I really like the 430 heads


Stick another weight in your sldr, 2 12.5 see if that adds any forgiveness

Jack Bowers says:

great review great content defo the best golf youtubers you keep it fresh
and new keep up the good work and have to say driver looks amazing love
your review format 

melvyn crabtree says:

Hi Rick hope that you are well mate, regards to the R15 driver, what’s the
cost and would it suit my swing speak soon cheers 

David Eaton says:

Get review can you get your hands on the 3 wood I believe it has a sliding

Ben Chang says:

Thanks for the review rick! Will this driver be in your bag now lol.

JAG sixtyfive says:

And no LH availability for the 460 TP R15, and no LH availabilty for the
R15 430 at all. Surprising that Lefties are left out in the cold to such a
degree. Just for info for any Lefties out there.

Chris Milton says:

Great video, would love to see the Vs video against 915 asap. Which one
would you say was the more forgiving?

R00dBoiGaming says:

Hope you play on some wide courses lol average 23 yards off line

westonp80 says:

Rick Shiels couldn’t hit 316y in his dreams, dude has his launch monitor

Dan Channer says:

Just goes to show that you don’t need 460cc to hit long!

Nicholas Topley says:

can we have a shaft comparison please, lots on the market but not much
advice! One driver several types of shaft to show the effects


When will you be doing a review of he AeroBurner series of drivers and

TheChenza05 says:

giving the people what they want, giving the people what they need!!! cant
wait for the head to head comparisons with the other big boys!
