It's not adjustable which frustrates me. I don't like the m1 fairways. Is it possible they will come out with a 13 or 14 degree version or is it even possible to have a non adjustable hosel club to be taken down a degree or 2? I almost pulled the trigger on a m2 last year but I just didn't like that they aren't adjustable.

Yes it is possible. I was playing a M1 3 wood, then switched to the tour issue M2 head. Had one made for me, 15* head that was bent to 14, which also opened the face a little and a little hot melt. Just find a good club fitter who is capable of doing it and knows what they are doing.

The current M2 tour issue fairways are absolutely sick.  I'm not sure if TM could really improve upon it to make it worth purchasing.  I too have a 15* head bent to 14.2 as well as a 16.5HL deep face bent to 16.2.  I also have a tour issue M2 5 wood.  They are absolute beasts - easy to hit, deep, workable.  Combined with the project x Hzrdus shaft and it doesn't get much better in my opinion.  

Hoping the new release will drop prices for existing stock so maybe I can find a 5 HL deep face tour issue or back up driver head for cheap.

LOVE IT! 4* flatter lie angle than the standard model. Done deal.
YES!!!
With such a flat lie angle it will be anti- left.
I was fitted last week for the m2 tour 3hl with hzrdus yellow75 but release date is soo far away!!
It sounds much nicer then the current M2 and the 2017 m2.
What did they give you for a release date?

These look great and love the specs except I would love to see a 13 degree version. I hope the Yellow HZRDUS is offered.

It will be hard to knock out my RBZ 13 degree, but my 16.5 HL 2016 M1 has been on and off. Really sensitive to shaft selections it seems. Tried 3  different shafts and only one seemed to work and that shaft should have never worked....GO figure.

Yes, hands down the best 3wood I have ever played. For a long time I was hesitant to bring whatever 3 wood I had at the time out of the bag, but with this I'm just looking for reasons to hit it. I have a Tensei Pro Blue in mine.

How does this head compare to the deep faced tour issue m2 that guys are loving? Also saw that the m1 2017 has 6 score lines , would that be similar to the deep faced m2 tour issue?

Looks like it's bigger and not as deep as the M2 DF which I play.

At 156cc, thats rather small for a 3 wood. I just hope it has a deeper face than the current version. If so its as good as in the bag for me!

Im upset with this. Will be a bunch of tour issue release (5) versions that cost double...

Also strange they wouldn't release a strong 3 (13.5), again will probably be tour issue

These are really solid, but they could have offered more

Thats the same CC as the 2016 M2 3w according to TM website. 17' M2 3w has ballooned to 175cc and 177cc in the 3HL while tour is 156cc. I really hope it is more deep faced but not getting my hopes up. Would expect it to be similar dimensions to 16' M2 with flatter lie/open face angle but you never know TM could surprise us

Thanks for that, just checked em out. No comparison to the 16' M2 but to my eye the 17' M2 & M2 Tour look to have the same face size albeit with 5 and 6 scoring lines respectively. The M2 tour looks more compact but doesn't seem have a deeper face to my eye, could be wrong though. Also not sure how it compares to this years M2, for all we know 17's could be deeper faced.

The '17 M2 tour looks nothing like the '16, more circular than the pear shape of its predecessor. Honestly it looks identical to the stage 2 RBZ tour (albeit with carbon fiber), which maybe was intentional as it's still popular on tour.

I think the new M2Tour is going to end up being very similar to the 2016 M2 Tour Issued.

Anyone have any compare pics now between the '16 Tour Issue and '17 Tour?  

For the ones wanting a 13 degree, I'm not sure if you hit the '16 version of the M2, but it was a very low launching fairway wood.  It launches like the old 13 degree RBZ's did.  I get some may still need 13, but just wanted to make sure everyone knew that.  

I used to play 12 and 13 degree 3 woods until the last year or two.  They've made them launch lower at 15 degrees where I actually needed the 16.5 in the M2.

Does anyone know if the weight will be interchangeable?  The flatter lie angle sounds great as that's the reason by current tour issue M2 FW is benched right now for a tour issue Jetspeed Proto.

Little disappointing that TM listed the M2 Tour as being available left handed then when the page became live yesterday for pre-orders, it flipped, and now they state it will not be offered.  Horrible tease :(

It'll be interesting to see if TM offers Tour Only variants of the "tour" fairway woods they are offering now.... if they'll do shallow face or deep face variants like in the past.  Hoping some options come out, even if tour only.  The DF M2 3 wood is one of the best fairway woods in my opinion.

Little disappointing that TM listed the M2 Tour as being available left handed then when the page became live yesterday for pre-orders, it flipped, and now they state it will not be offered.  Horrible tease :(

Yes, I mentioned that issue on another thread only yesterday. Huge disappointment for Lefties. However, as I also said at the time, TM's loss is Callaways gain. Looks like a SZ Fairway will be heading my way instead, so the disappointment is taken away pretty quickly! :taunt:

Hah good call!  I agree with you there.  Just so disheartening :swoon2: , I got all excited to get in there for a pre-order then had the rug pulled out from under me.  Although I'm sure my wallet and wife would applaud TM's decision.

There, there! Seriously though, there's some great stuff out there, and if you're in the market for a good Fairway for 2017, I reckon there will be a plethora of options to get excited about as a lefty. Mizunos' JPX 900 is another strong candidate as well as the Callaway Epics, and Cobra F7's, and Srixon Z F65's. And remember that the TM M1 is still a great Club to try too. I truly believe that when you've had the chance to go out and try a few of the other offerings, you'll be equally excited about ordering, as you were about the TM M2 Tour.

I've ordered one of these in 3HL with Hazrdus but I don't even know when the release date is? I've heard it's later than the standard M1/M2 stuff which is released on 27th??

Anyone know more?

Does anyone know if the weight will be interchangeable?  The flatter lie angle sounds great as that's the reason by current tour issue M2 FW is benched right now for a tour issue Jetspeed Proto.

I don't know for certain but I can almost guarantee you there will be aftermarket weights available for the M2 Driver & M2 Tour Fairways.

When will these manufacturers get it? Only 1 80g+ shaft offering and it's a poor fwy shaft in the Black Tie. Why can't these companies offer more options in the 80-90g range? Guess I'm sticking with Cobra.

my honest suggestion?

find a fairway shaft that you love -- buy 3 of them. go out and test new heads on sims at your local fitter when they come out - and put your tried and true shaft in it. buy them for the heads, not the shafts.
