Bought a few clubs from Golf Deals and Steals, so I get their morning emails for the daily "deal". Today they have 2016 M1 and M2 drivers that are listed as Preowned/ARP, which is not an unusual deal for them, but I noticed something interesting today... One of the options is for an M2 in 8.5 degrees. As far as I know, the 2016 M2s were Tour Issue only in 8.5 degrees. Anyone know what might be going on here?

FWIW, I'm in need of a driver so I went ahead and got one.

I got this email as well so I started looking because I'd like to try out a 460 8.5 deg M1. I came across the M1 Tour driver and I didn't think there was such a thing. The first thing that comes up on a Google search is a WRX article about the M1 Tour driver coming from the Vault at $800 each and very limited quantities. They can't be selling that for $200, can they???

Did yours still have the spec sticker on the wrapper? If so, what was the actual loft? Don't want a 7 degree driver but its going to be a crapshoot anyway.

The M1 Tour they're selling for $200 is in fact the $800 driver head from the vault. It has the plus engraved like the WRX article mentioned.

It did not have the original loft sticker on it though so I don't know how sure my 8.5 is to 8.5

I snagged on last night with the Speed Rulz shaft. Its interesting that they are selling Tour Issue heads on eBay for $299 but this is like a stealth sale on their website. They must have some serious stock they need to move,

For you folks that have ordered from them before, how quickly do they ship and what method do they use?

These are great finds.  Haven't had a TM driver that I liked since the original R11, but have not tried the M series.  I do really like my m2 3 wood (super long) so i have hope yet for the driver.  I must say I sincerely hate how long TM drivers come stock.

When I placed my order I emailed Golf Steals and Deals about the head. I asked for a head that is as close to the stated loft as possible and for them to leave the spec sticker on the head. I figured I would never hear back but it was worth a shot. They emailed back this morning and said they would hand pick my head for me and leave the plastic and sticker on. I was surprised by the reply and good customer service. I will be ordering again. Also, the Speed Rulz shaft is one I have been wanting to try. This is a sleeper of a deal all around.

So if it is an 8.5 it must be tour issue or was 8.5 retail as well?

Google kind of answered my question but only 10 were released. But I am still not %100 sure.

"TaylorMade will make 10 of the 8.5-degree M2 Tour heads available to the public through the company's Vault on July 21. Along with having the 8.5 stamped on the head, you can differentiate the retail from the Tour head by the "+" symbol that's engraved on the hosel, which confirms it has been tested in TaylorMade's Tour department."
