Why isn't this is tour and pre-release? But also it looks pretty good, just hope it's more forgiving than the 2017 M1/M2.

Great, right after I ordered my M2 3 wood and completed my set. Was finally starting to gel with these woods! I'll hit them against mine though and see if there's any crazy improvements.

The M4's sole looks to be made of plastic,, and that makes me wonder about durability.  Never been a fan of black soles, as they tend to ' scuff up' much easier than silver metal soles.. :beee:

Apparently TM wants to continue the 2-tone look for the M-Series , but I would have loved to have seen it all black, rather than another 2-tone model.  I understand why they do this however.   It's all about maintaining instant brand recognition.

Of course, such 'cosmetics' criticisms mean little to nothing when it comes to performance.  I expect it will be another good performer from TM.  

These are just my initial 'cosmetic' impressions based on the first pics... :rolleyes:

I'll grant you the bottom isn't the prettiest however the true test is when the club is in the playing position.  From the pics I have seen the M4's shape isn't that dramatically different from the 2017 M2.

Thanks for the photos! Is the top of the crown white (as before) or silver? In the photo it looks silver but maybe itís just my eyes!

I believe it will remain white, though I could be wrong. EDIT: Source says it is a silver crown.

Silver crown mmmmmmm....... not sure I will be a fan.

Agree!! Like the white!

I understand why the go with the two tone crown, but Ping and Callaway sold a whole bunch of Drivers and Woods this year that don't "pop"on TV.

I wonder how obvious the face technology is? I was told the face is actually twisted in a way to correct side spin and not the traditional bulge and roll.

That silver on the crown looks terrible; i feel the demographic for that is the ďi grew up in the 80sĒ bunch. No offense. It reminds me of Robocop. The white looks so much better.

Donít care what a sole looks like unless it looks like Mizunoís 2017 driver, then Iíd even pass on that.

Any idea of the head size? it looks compact to me but that could be the angle of the picture. Hopefully there is a sub-460cc option.
