Saw this on Instagram anybody have any info on tmags new driver?

It's not just throwing carbon at a head. 1st off you will notice the weights are not recessed in tracks/channels in this version pictured, and the face is clearly taller than the sole plate area. If those are in fact carbon inserts - which I believe they are - then I would guess that they have centralized mass into the sliding weights and the assemblies they move in. It also would give the face a slight channel affect ala Adams technology. I don't think this is evidence of lowering CG but rather a centralization and maximization of CG affect. This all being done to a head that was damn good to begin with. Just my guess.

I have contacted TMAG and requested a version to scaled down for we the feathered friends of golf. I will post should i get an answer.

This thing looks awesome, love the use of carbon fiber.  I was a big Callaway fan for their use but made the switch back to TM with the launch of the M series.  I absolutely love my M1 Tour issue driver and M2 Tour issue fairways.... so excited to see what they come out with next.  Better build the bankroll so I can purchase the Tour Issue versions when they come out!

Is it me, or are those adjustment weights exposed?  On the M1 Driver, the weights are recessed into the head, these would be digging into the turf from what I can see.  That only would lead me to believe it's not legit.   Though I dig the look!

odd that the weights are not recessed at all, I can see them getting ripped off the head in multiple scenarios.

So, are they going to stagger the release of the M2 later this time as well, or will the M1 and M2 be coming out at the same date this time?

I noticed the same thing. I'm thinking the track isn't as deep thus freeing up mass, but still odd they're exposed.

Weights not regressed definitely looks weird. Unless it's fake it might be a first prototype?

The other site mentioned a new adapter. Wonder what the changes will be and will the new head still be backwards compatible. Have to imagine the M2 replacement will use whatever tech is in the M1 part deux minus the weights.

The heel part of the sole sits lower than the toe section. Unless the weight is shaped differently or something. Weird

The weights are still recessed on one side. The bottom of the club face in front of the weight slot and the large part of the sole that says M1 are higher than the carbon toe section. Kind of an illusion

looks like a carbon copy of the original with more carbon. The weight placement does look suspect at best, durability could be an issue.
