This driver achieved almost legendary status on WRX.  But many people seem to have switched from it.  Is this just classic ho'ing or did something legitimately knock it out of your bag?

G400 lst for me.  It just came in yesterday.  But it beat out my m2 at the fitting (I was fit for both) with non stock shafts

Nothing yet because I'm not a scratch level golfer who needs 4 extra yards or whatever it is that another club would get me. G400 and Epic both got me maybe 2mph more ball speed...Not worth my money.

I've yet to hit any of the new releases but I doubt they'd do much more for me either. I'm pretty sure at most I'd see the same 2 or 3 mph ballspeed increase... maybe they're more forgiving but that's pretty hard to evaluate during a demo bay trial.

For me it's all about dispersion and consistency, which is almost 100% on me and not a club head. I'm long enough where if I'm in the fairway, I'll do well. If I'm in some trees... who cares if my ball speeds were up 3mph... I'll be even further in trouble.

Nothing. Still gaming it, and, because I cracked the face back in October, it's brand new. Doubt I move in from it. In fact, I'm probably going to invest in a 2016 backup so I can continue to play it for a while.

Still gaming mine! Iím interested in the new M3/M4 technology but will wait to see how the reviews turn out about it. Excited to hear what the WRXers currently on the TM trip have to say about it in the coming days. My Ď16 has been so good though that the new one will have to be phenomenal in all areas to justify spending the $$.

Still gaming mine but the M1 440 has me VERY intrigued and it's going to contend for a spot in the bag next season.  Have had some huge hits with the M2 and generally happy with off-center performance, but could use some additional spin reduction.  We'll see, '16 M2 will be very tough to beat.

I bag a TI Adams Fast 12 LS glued Hosel for a long time, nothing beat it until i tried the TI 2016 M2. I try the newest drivers but nothing beat my 2016 M2 including the 2017 M2.

Maybe the 2018 M3 and M4, but will see. :)

What made it better than the 2016 M1? Curious as both models are being cleared out. I like the adjustability of the M1 but if the M2 is that much better......

M1 is lower spinning that was really the only difference for me. M2 may be alittle more forgiving.

Ball-speed across the face is almost unrivaled with the 16' M2.  I don't think there is much of a difference on center hits between the two.  Many found the M2 to out perform the M1 in the most forgiving setting.

A crack on the crown. Taylormade replaced with with the 2017 version. The shaft was a poor fit initially so Iíve had more success with the 2017, but itís not apples to apples.

I traded it for a Cobra F7+

Nothing really 'kicked' it out of my bag other than the fact I like trying new clubs and experimenting with new combos.

It was very long for me. I enjoyed the 16' M2 quite a bit.

Mine is still in the bag...its been a love hate relationship with drivers in general until I got the 2016 M2 in the bag. I am going for a fitting next month but its to try different shafts in this version M2.

Started with the 2016 m2. Got curious and went through a 2016 m1 460, tour issue m2, 2017 m1 460, 2017 m1 440 which is great. Finally just got a good deal on here for a tour issue 2016 m2 head. Iíll be keeping that unless the 440 wins.
