Allegedly, the head was slightly redesigned to look more like the old M2.  I'm not sure if that is true or not.  From, the pictures I have seen it looks like a '17 M2.  I suspect the internals were changed in some way or another.

Correct from what I was told they weren't getting the feedback they wanted out of the 2017 M2 so they redid them.  Not exactly sure what changes they made to them but correct definitely something with the internals.  Ill try to find out some more info this week.

I wish i had more information for you guys, but one of the guys i play with is on staff with TM. He has been experimenting with new drivers recently and the m2 he received from TM sounds significantly different than the 17 m2 I purchased. It sounds hotmelted, but havnt had a chance to take a closer look. It most certainly is much quieter off the face than mine

Just an FYI, they have hit retail shelves as well.  Saw them at a Dicks in Cleveland last Tuesday.

xxKxxx in the Serial & the actual painting of the serial is noticeably different.  Didn't have time to hit one to see if it has really changed.

without a doubt hotmelting a head to SW changes the acoustics significantly.  i have a few tour heads in my collection - one 2017 K serial - one non K.  both sound look and perform very well...  i prefer the shape of the 2017 m2 to the 2016 (currently have both).

I went to GG today and picked out a k serial along with non k serial and confirmed they do sound different.

Too close to tell for sure but it also looked like the "K-type" has a deeper face also. (Non k looked more shallow comparing them side by side)

I gave the manager both and asked if he noticed any difference before I told him the story and he immediately said, "this one has a deeper face." (referring to the k serial)

That's pretty interesting.  Any way you(or someone else) could put up some pics?

Yes, it was interesting but sorry I didn't take any pics. The sound was the noticeably louder with the non k type.

FYI I have a non k type and hated the sound until I hotmelted it to 200grams. Now it's a cannon and I honestly can't decide to game that or my M1440.

The lack of solid info leaves me feeling like we're chasing a unicorn here. Maybe the K serial number heads were just a bit hotter faced. Maybe the K serial number denote the beginning of the M2 Version 2 Tour heads that are on the USGA site. Rory not playing a K isn't a surprise. I would think he got the pick of the 8.5° newly minted litter. Rory signing with TM is probably why a 8.5° head got made. Could the head(s) Rory plays be a K head, sure but then that makes identifying these heads by serial number futile.

I don't have anything but guesses at this point but I'd love to know if there is any difference.

No, one is not hotter than the other based on the fact that ball speeds were similar when I compared them. And I used the same loft in each with the same shaft. Only difference is the non k serial is louder and what shape of head you prefer.

This is just my opinion and honestly the shape is ever so slightly different this probably won't make that much difference at all BUT... Since the non k serial version is flatter (maybe longer face) it could give you more forgiveness on toe/heel shots while the k serial being deeper face (maybe not as long heel to toe) could give you better misses high and low off the face. So if you're the type that misses more lateral (heel/toe) the non k serial could benefit you more and vice versa.

I think for tour players who can tell if something is just a hair off, it makes a difference for them.... but for us mortals if this thread was never brought up we would never even notice they came out with a different head.

Edit:
Now that I think about it they could've waited and came out with a "M2 Tour" like they did with the fairway for the new design. But maybe they decided it was best to not have so many models out there to confuse people.

As much as I trust what is being said about a deeper face model, I'd still love to hear from TM exactly what the differences are.

As much as I trust what is being said about a deeper face model, I'd still love to hear from TM exactly what the differences are.

Tiger will get 18 majors before that happens

Q: does it matter where the K is positioned in the serial?

Was in PGATSS today. All 9.5 and 10.5 models had the K in the middle of the serial. All 12 and D-Types had no K. I tried to compare a 10.5 to a 12 but frankly I don't think it's fair because of the different molds for the loft. They were definitely different for what it's worth.

Closely reviewed the xxxkxxxx vs non k , paint break is slightly different, biggest diff is the lower sole of the face, where the old version is shorter / more rounded

Hitting the two side by side , id say there is a slight difference in feel with the same shaft; added 6g hot melt to the xxxkxxxx head, feel is awesome ~ d3.5 sw
