From the digging I have done, I'm told the face height is fractionally taller and the CG placement was adjusted. The factory hotmelt placement was also changed.

ive hotmelted both non k and k. Both weighed around 194-195 grams stock.

When I pulled out the weight screw on the k type it had hotmelt already there right where the hole was making it difficult to add more.

After I got them both to 200 grams I hit them to compare any performance difference and there wasn't any difference is sound or performance. Honestly not really sure there's a difference in shape either when I kept trying to split hairs between the 2

I have hit both the "K" and "non-K"  retail heads and did not notice any difference in my hands.. Sound, numbers, and address look seemed the same to me.  Until TMAG confirms difference I do not believe a different head.  Just MHO.

The "K" has a flux capacitor.

once you swing 88mph, you can go anywhere you like

I had a chat my club fitter that deals with TM for Tour heads.  He asked his TI source that works for TM what is the difference with K serial numbers?  He was told that shortly after the 2017 M2 was released TM moved manufacturing from one factory to another one but was not certain if the new factory's production started with K serial numbered heads.  Apparently, just to be safe since these heads could end up on Tour, TM submitted a run of lofts to the USGA for testing/approval.  The heads are exactly the same in every way except TM called the heads produced by the new factory Version 2.

That's the most logical explanation I've heard so far.

Wow, a new manufacturing facility?! That sounds like a major major move. I make two trips just to move my crap from the familyroom to the bedroom at night. I'd love to hear more details on this.

Maybe K = North Korea. I heard on the news last night that trade between North Korea and China is higher this year than previous years. Watch out, these K heads may go nuclear...

I have both K and non-K tour heads in 10.5*.  Removed the weight screw on the K version and it said "V1" in white lettering underneath the washer.  I don't see a lot of obvious differences but planning to hit both tomorrow.

Complete fail on my part!  I have no excuse.  I knew it was 1.21 but typed the wrong thing. Trying to do too many things at once.  I suck at multi-tasking.  Thanks for the correction.

Just got mine yesterday and played it today. Can't compare to a non-K head but it's point & shoot with not-too-loud sound. Not muted but not Ping G loud either.

I would imagine a K head hitting K-Sig balls would be epic...
