delish.......... love a mini driver!
have a cpl  of  oldies that have not been  betterd  anytime recently, this cud give them a run  by the looks  of it  tho.
they are not that far off distance wise with  much  more consistent  accuracy.
on short  , or tricky  thin fairway tracks I don't bother with a driver any more.

I've had a TM Mini driver in my bag for quite a few years now (the HO in me wanted me to point out it has not the same one that whole time obviously).  On off driving days it's versatility off the tee cannot be replaced and I've never had too much trouble hitting it off the deck.  The latest gamer was an Aeroburner Tour Issue 14* so I basically just replicated the specs with this club.  It's only 10cc smaller but is even better off the deck in testing so far than the TM.  Launch conditions on the monitor off the tee are very good.  Also TM always misspelled her name on their clubs and that always irritated me so I was happy to be able to right that wrong.  Will get it on the course for the first time tomorrow.

That's awesome. I guess I never picked up the Mini/Minnie before. That weight port though. It's intriguing. It looks similar to my RC CV Pro head, but much closer to the hosel. Did you request it that way?

That looks great. Let us know how she plays. Personally, I would have had the loft between 11-13 for a mini driver. Any reason for the 14? To use off the fairway I guess.

14* loft because I wanted it to be more playable from the fairway.  I pretty much copied the specs of my TM Mini Driver.  So far so good it's a little higher trajectory and better off the deck than the TM.  Only complaint it's a little too loud.

Maybe add some cotton balls?

I believe the head has compressed air inside (from the Pneumatic stamping). OP can confirm. If that’s the case, head is factory sealed.

I asked for it foamed from the factory which they said they did and I can't seem to get into the head from any of the weight ports etc.

Plus Minnie has always taken the louder acting roles anyways she never really has been one to play the quiet, meek roles so maybe it's fitting.
