Good stuff.  Wish I hit my M2 higher because I like everything else about it.  

First time Iíve seen someone accused of bias in their witb thread, and on top of that itís someone whoís job is to provide oems unbiased reviews.  Good on you for even responding.

Everyone is biased to a degree I suppose, however it's my own personal bag thread so of course I'm playing the things I like, and that suit me perfectly. Haha. During product analysis, we stick to just the facts to keep it unbiased, but in my own bag thread I try to point out the good and the bad and why I liked or didn't like something, no matter how minimal the issue. However I think the main point is that I would never trash a product because of an opinion, however I will point out it's factual shortcomings based on what my personal game needs.

I picked up a T3 M2 Deep face based on your recommendation above - can't wait to try it out!

I can't imagine anyone not being happy with that head and Tensei Pro White combo. I've had literally five other players hit my 3 wood and replicate the exact same set up.

I had a t3 m2 df with a Tensei Pro Blue 90tx and it was alright but I ended up going back to my TI 16 m1. I probably should of tried the pro white like I wanted to but with playing blueboard 103x for a long time I thought the PB 90 would give me that same holy grail I was looking for but it didnít. I probably should of kept it considering when I tested it my elbow was so far gone I couldnít swing the club exactly how I wanted to before surgery.

As long as you have something you like now, that's all that matters. And I suppose some people may not find the M2 DF very forgiving but I really don't find it punishing at all. I'm a good ball striker but I'm no Tour player, and I can't remember a single instance on the course that this club didn't do exactly what I expected. I also know a lot of guys are afraid of Pro White as a fairway shaft but the 80tx does not hit low. The flight is low spin and the apex is flat, but it's not low launch. I'm getting 12.5/2800 or so off the deck with this thing at near driver ball speeds.

There are a few on the BST right now, otherwise ebay is your best bet. I got my head for $150 which seems to be around the going rate for these.

At this point, eBay. Should set you back just under $200 for the head.

I'm actually waiting on my custom mallet to show up. I'd like to do a little review on it once I get it, but it's been awhile now.

Looking forward to your review on the Bloodline putter. So assuming you’ve rolled them, what are your initials impressions and what stood out to you most? I’m interested but haven’t seen any reviews on them.

You've got to get used to the grip which is basically round and the fact that all the weight is in the head. It's different but the ability to be able to perfectly align yourself quickly over rides any initial discomfort.

Sounds intriguing.  I don't think I will have any problem with round grips but with all the weight in the head, distance control isn't an issue?  Look forward to your review JT.

There is no question it takes some getting used to. Putting is the strongest part of my game and I even realized I was a couple degrees misaligned at 20 feet. It's very helpful as a putter and a learning tool as well.

Iím only a round and a range session in and this thing is exactly as you describe - very small, somewhat intimidating looking head, but launches plenty highe off the deck and feels amazing. My only concern is that it might go too far for what I need, maybe should have picked up a 3hl!

It really is like having a second driver that you can hit off the deck. We test all the new 3 woods every year and nothing even makes me consider switching.

I took a clue from here and have found the Mizuno GT180 to be a really great driver shafted with a Graphite Design Tour AD IZ 5 X.

The open face and 10.5* are just what the Dr. ordered for me - I have a lot of face turn down thru impact.

Easily and immediately displaced my Epic.

It's outstanding. I loved it in testing except the fact that I don't like a super open face and need a super low loft. Basically completely contradictory to the one loft thing all they companies seem to do these days.

Minor switch but went to gripmaster kangaroo midsize in all my woods. By far the best grip in hot humid environments. The wetter it gets, the tackier it becomes. I can't say enough good things about it.
