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 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.

OP here, I ended up bagging a M2 tour 16.5 with Tensei Pro White CK.  So long and easy to hit.  Sick combo.  Thanks to all for help.  Now to find a gap between a 18 degree Xr Pro hybrid and Bridgestone J15 CB 25 degree Iron.

My M1 HL is so long it is almost borderline stupid.

I have a atmos black 7x in it and it is a low spin cannon.

Hit one 285 into the wind the other day and then last night with no wind and it was right st 300

I hear ya.   I don't play the longest fw but they're consistant enough and fill gaps.   A 3w that goes as far as my driver can be problematic.

Is it true the 2017 M2 Tour 3 woods lie angle is several degrees flatter than the M1?

Even being a "tour" version, I still feel like the M2 is pointed toward my left toe when at address. I have my M1 dialed down 2* and love the way it sits at address. I prefer a much more open looking face than most though. There aren't many 3 woods out there that I don't think sit closed.

OP here, still loving the M2 tour with Tensei CK Pro White 70 stiff.  I have decided to resift my driver.  Just looking for a higher launch better feeling shaft akin to my fairway wood.  My current driver is a m1 460 9.5 with Diamana W60 stiff.  Any recommendations?  I have been thinking the CK Pro White 60 or Graphite Design GP6 shaft.

I was on a 10 year golf hiatus and just swapped out my Titleist 975 3-wood(!!) for a 2017 M1 3HL that I won on eBay.
LOL the difference is night and day. My main choice for M1>M2 was price since I didn't see much difference in performance when I tested both out.
