Wow I'm still REAL confused on this so I'm hoping somebody can clear up. I purchased a 2017 M1 440 head and, not knowing all this time about the different TM adapters bought this:
https://m.ebay.com/i...zMAAOSwqfNXianf

It adjusts 3 degrees.  I have already prefitted the adapter into the head and yes it appears to fit but can somebody assure me this will work?

Yes - it will work just fine

Also I found this handy little chart for the 4 degree sleeves:

Does somebody have this for the 3 degree sleeve?

Do a google search for the SLDR tuning guide - that uses a +/- 1.5* adapter and should be close enough.

It's really the same except the loft/lie increments are 0.5* instead of 2/3*.

I think this has been answered, but....2017, 9.5 M1 Head and R1 shaft. If shaft is set on 10*, would that be 9.5 as stated on clubhead?

Quick question. Have an r9 driver but looking to upgrade the shaft with a SLDR tip. I assume it won't work? Can I swap the tip adaptor from my r9 and SLDR shafts? How much will that set me back?

I'd be going from a Fuji Motore Stiff pretty sure it's a 60 g altho the TM PDF online says 65g to a Fuji Motore Tour Spec 7.3 X-stiff 77 g looks like the tip goes from .350 on the stock r9 stiff motore to a .335 on the SLDR tour spec shaft. Am I getting myself into a shaft that just isn't going to work for this driver?

You're correct that it wont work.  Do you really want/need to use the m1 shaft in the r9?  

If you swap the adapters, you'll likely need to buy new ferrules - only about $3-5 depending on the source.   The rest of the cost depends on what your local builder charges for pulling/installing.   Most would just buy a new adapter for the one shaft you want to use in the m1.    About $15-25 for a new adapter depending on where you get it and then the cost of a single pull/install (instead of 2).

Thanks for the info! I really just need the xstiff shaft. This one was pulled from a SLDR [my mistake] buddy is selling it online. I even have an old r5 I could pull the adapter for. I just wasn't sure if the fitment was going to sacrifice performance or be doing something oddball as I don't really know equipment comparability enough. The shaft would be costing me 50 bux and assuming I could reuse/shim the existing stock r9 TM adapter I figured it would be the cheapest way for me to get an x-stiff driver without buying a new one. Just wanted to make sure there was nothing funny or that the labour costs were gonna make it a minor difference to buying a new boomstick. What do you think?

FYI I noticed you mentioned using the m1 I needed to specify this shaft i'm buying is already pulled from an existing club so he just sold the head and is now selling the shaft/adapter from the club. I know my current r9 [driver i use now] needs an xstiff shaft so I was hoping to use his xstiff in my r9 just wanted to know the compatibility/cost outside of the purchase of the shaft to do so.
