Like the silver. But what's with hammer head tech ?  Really ?  Better swing swingweight at d9 and sound like a forged face goddess to claim being " the hammer ".

Silver really looks cheap, hope they go with the white.  I said it in the other thread, this club has some serious BMW influence.

They definitely were not shy about their BMW M inspiration. A corporate lawyer in Munich is probably drafting a document as we speak.

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.

There is no such thing as side spin on a golf ball.

Looks quite awful....the bottom that is. I would have to judge the silver crown in person. Maybe the people at TMAG saw all of the people in the Continental Golf thread that changed the white part of the crown to SLDR gray. I hated the color scheme on the 17 M2 as well (which is why I completely blacked out the sole), but it performs.

Center of gravity looks to be moved up. Looks like that weight and the sole in general have the cog up and back rather than down and back. Wonder if this means they've been able to drop spin on the m2 while maintaining or increasing forgiveness...

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

Silver - I think it would be Great White...

See what I did there ��

Like the silver. But what's with hammer head tech ?  Really ?  Better swing swingweight at d9 and sound like a forged face goddess to claim being " the hammer ".
I don't think it will swing D9... That's kind of silly. Odds are they used even more carbon fiber to lower the weight, then used titanium for the "Hammerhead" tech to add rigidity. I already feel like M1/M2 from '17 sounded fairly mute, so I do wonder how this would sound and feel.

Definitely not into the silver.... Makes it look like it's made from metal  (steel specifically) which is kind of the opposite look of what people are wanting these days. I still don't think anything is going to out do my M2 from 2016.
