    I'll be interested on how this performs side by side with the X2 driver. Taking the recommendation and staying away from the SLDR and this TM driver could be a decent upgrade while retaining some of the characteristics of the SLDR.

    Not exactly the same thing, but as of now I can at least give you some X-hot comparisons since that's my normal gamer. Even have the aftermarket version of the same shaft in my X-Hot(though its a heavier version).

    That'd be great to see XHot vs JetSpeed numbers side by side. Whenever you can, I'll appreciate it.

    This really looks interesting. Does anyone know if the shafts from the RBZ Stage 2 driver will work in the Jet Speed??

    I don't think so. This is the 12-way adapter like the R1 and SLDR have.

    Just for information purposes, I sent an email to Taylormade Tech support and they claim the Stage 2 shafts will fit the SLDR and the new JetSpeed drivers.

    Additionally, they will also interchange with the new Adams drivers, which is very cool to see IMO.

    Whoa, you just blew my mind, so what is the range of adjustability going to be with this driver? 8-12 degree?

    It's 1.5 either way, and then a number of lie angle settings.

    Hawk, has there been an indication that a golfer should go up in loft with this driver a la the SLDR, or does the unique characteristics of the SLDR that make increased loft play the role that it does with the SLDR not translate to the Jetspeed?

    Yes, due to similar weight placement they are recommending that people loft up just like the SLDR. Sort of surprised they sent me a 9.5 because of that, but I can adjust up to 11 if needed.
