SPOTTED: A “TaylorMade M3” driver pops up on Instagram

Published

on

In November, two photos of a “TaylorMade M4″ driver were posted Instagram, and one of the photos indicated something called “Hammerhead” technology in the sole. Today, a TaylorMade “M3” driver was posted on Instagram from user “bryangolf,” who associates with PGA National Resort & Spa in his profile.

Based on the photo, it appears TaylorMade is using a different-looking weight track compared to its previous CG-adjustable M1 driver. The M1 drivers of 2016 and 2017 both used dual-weighted T-tracks to help displace weight toward the heel and the toe, and from back to front. It appears that this TaylorMade “M3” driver has a y-shaped track, also housing two weights. It also appears that TaylorMade is using carbon fiber in this “M3” driver, and it also displays the same “Hammerhead” technology in the sole as seen in the photo of the “M4.”

As the photos indicate, with the “M3” being weight-adjustable, and the “M4” having no CG adjustability, it could mean that the M3 is a replacement for the adjustable M1, and the M4 is a replacement for the non-adjustable M2.

What do you think about the photo of this new TaylorMade “M3” driver?

    To the guy that says he bought a M1 M2 and an M4. How did you buy an M4 when it’s not even out? Until they show us the top of the driver I’ll hold my evaluation on my opinion till then.

    Wait until all the info on the new M3 and M4 gets out there. Their approach with these drivers is a completely different than all others. Than you guys will really have something to debate about.

    Those weight tracks in the back going to the sides will do absolutely nothing.

    Does this one have white with the black top line like the previous models? Love the white and black way more than the grey and black.

    Trying to get your Taylor Made sales rep fired? Posting a picture of a club not released yet is the surest way to do that. But hey you Golfwrx used you Instagram account.

      He actually got in a little bit of trouble but not from TM. He doesn’t actually work for PGA National but he works for the LOFT Golf trailer on the PGA National property. He had to take down the post for liability issues with PGA National.

Spotted: Fujikura Ventus shafts

Published

on

fujikura-ventus-shafts

Photos of a new shaft offering from Fujikura have appeared in the GolfWRX Forums. We first spotted the Fujikura Ventus on Tour at the Safeway Open last year, and it went into two players’ bags that week.

Since then, the shaft has been showing up on Tour more frequently, and it is expected to come to retail some time early this year.

The Ventus is a Tour inspired design — meaning low torque and a stiff tip section. This profile creates a mid-launching shaft that also offers low spin.

The use of extremely stiff 70-ton pitch fiber throughout the full length of the shaft, creates more center face contact by reducing twisting at impact. The 70-ton fiber is laid at 45 degrees in the bias layer for tighter dispersion and consistency.

Fujikura itself tweeted the following evidence of continued player testing of the shaft.

Spotted: Project X HZRDUS Yellow Smoke shafts

Published

on

project-x-hzrdus-yellow-smoke

A Project X HZRDUS Yellow Smoke shaft has surfaced in the GolfWRX Forums.

To expand its popular HZRDUS line, it looks like Project X is testing the new Smoke series to include the Yellow Profile. If you recall, the Yellow was the second profile added to the original HZRDUS line which has the key features of

  • Higher balance point to allow for both longer lengths, or heads with a higher than standard mass.
  • Slightly softened profile for smoother tempo players, and increased feel

The pictures also show off a new “Small Batch” logo that seems to be a play on the very popular original Hand Crafted. This would appear related to the moving of the Hand Crafted production line out of the U.S. manufacturing facility in San Diego owing to the growing demand in the market for the shafts in both the aftermarket and with OEMs. These “Small Batch” shafts could mean a return to the U.S. production facility for Project X.

Bringing the Yellow Profile into the Smoke line would add a softer higher balance point (counter balanced) profile to a line up already designed to have increased feel. From a fitting standpoint, this could be another win-win shaft, perfect for the slightly less aggressive players looking to play a longer driver without sacrificing feel.

Forum Thread of the Day: “2019 Accra TZ5 & TZ6 shafts”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases the 2019 Accra TZ5 & TZ6 shafts. The shafts have been met with resounding approval from our members on our forum, who almost to a man find them a thing of beauty, and are eager to find out just when they will hit the shelves.

For more photos, make sure to check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, and you can join the discussion at the link below.

  • Ziggy16: “Yessssss love it. I had the chance to hit Accra shafts for the first time in 2018. I think they are some of the best feeling shafts I’ve ever swung. It’s between them and VA Composites, although I just saw Oban is now back in the game. Still, after all these years, the HB is still making a mark in my bag.”
  • KMo23: “Have the TZP Proto in the Driver, can’t wait to find a weight and launch profile for a fairway wood. Lots of tour guys switching to this!”
  • Oaks: “It’s the best feeling Shaft I can remember in a while.  Reminds me of the old ACCRA feel that they were known for.”
  • rpmspooner: “I had a chance to chat with Reid at Accra yesterday. They are extremely excited about the Tz5 and Tz6. I think they think this one is a home run. “Smoother mid section” was the response. If that is true, I don’t know who is going to compete with ACCRA this year. They already owned the smooth space in golf shafts.”
