From what I understand these are pretty similar in terms of size/distance.

The m2 tour is a little deeper.

The M1 is more adjustable/removable shafts.

I've heard the M1 is a tad more forgiving.

On tour both get a lot of play.

I'd buy the one that is cheaper, M1. You can buy a brand new head for $150 on eBay.

I personally didn't get along with the 2016 M2. The lie angle promoted hooks for me. The 2017 M1, on the other hand, is a hand cannon. I play it with the Speeder Evo 757 and it is long, straight and pretty easy to hit. The head is smaller than the G30' it replaced, but that hasn't been an issue for me.

M2 Tour. Point and shoot.

You don't wanna be stuck questioning if you had your loft setting or weight adjustment in the right spot for you. Fairway woods should be simple, powerful, and accurate.

Feels super solid too.

I can personally vouch that the 2017 M2 Tour w/ Tensei Pro White is among the greatest combinations ever assembled.

I can also attest to the deadly combo of the Tensei Pro White and the M2 fairway.  I even have the non-tour model, and it's just incredible.  (Here comes the worst phrase ever but it applies)  "It's almost too long".  

Control is outstanding.  Feel/sound is ok, but definitely better than the 16 model.  Only possible gripe is it does have a tendency for some ridiculous flyers due to the low spin rate.  It's not a drop-and-stop fairway, at least not for me.  But since I use it mainly from the tee this isn't a big concern.  Great club.

I am putting a adapter on it and realizer the M2 tour isn't adjustable.  So it appears its the M1, the question becomes which loft setup will be best with it.  15 or 16.5 deg?

I play a 5w/2 hybrid so I put the 15 deg 3 wood in my bag. I never have trouble launching fairways off the deck.

I haven't hit the m2 tour but have heard great things about it which made me think about getting one but decided not to. I have tour issue 16 m1 3&5 woods and love them. They are solid solid solid. I'm swapping in different shafts in both of them to a low spin shaft but even with mid spin shafts in them they are rockets.
