Terrific.  Is that a m5tour or just m5?
M5 460. I usually play the smaller head but I am testing the 460 it looks and feels good in the few shots I have hit.  Hopefully more today depending on weather.

I would like to know if you think you are seeing higher ball flight with low spin.  Most reviews I have seen show 15 -16* launch with 2000 spin area.
If it is too wet in Napa send it up to me in Eureka....bone dry and 75*…. :D

As many have said previously, the M3 and the M5 adapters are interchangeable and I don't believe anything changed from the M1 to M3 so you should be fine.

Is it me or does this shape differ from M3 by being longer heel to toe and less deep front to back?

No. I tried taking a picture of it next to the M3 440, but I can't get a good shot of it. I have seen some pics of it including mine and it is not narrow. Shape is similar to the M3 440 but a little bigger. The M5 is approx.4 5/8" across and 5" toe to heel (a club cannot legally be wider than it is long even though some may look it especially putters). The M3 440 is approx. 4.5 across by 4 7/8 toe to heel From the bottom with no wrap around. I like the shape a lot. I usually prefer the shape of the TMs over others which many appear to me to be more "bulbus".

I don't have the M5 Tour (435) yet just the 460. I hit some shots on course late today. Actually went on the course and never hit an iron or a putter just drivers a couple of 3wds and a few Hi Toe lobs. Very windy and wet ground. I actually took 7 driver shafts out there more to eliminate a few to better focus and narrow the selections. Next step to find the best set ups with each shaft in the weight adjustments and hosel sets. Then compare to select the best for the most consistency and best performance for both distance and dispersion. Don't know if I will be able to get all of that done before heading to Orlando next Friday. Games Sat, Sun, and Monday before Demo day and the SHOW. We'll see how it goes.  I will take the M3 440 with me but I really plan on gaming the M5 at least after Saturday.
Initial NOTES Trajectory is clearly higher without any ballooning even while using different balls for testing. I forgot to take the new '19 TP5X ball out there.
Big difference from the M3 440 is in the sound and feel. The M5 is much more "solid" at impact thus some might consider it more "muted" in feel. It has more of an actual wood sense to it. Therefore less vibration. I really like that part of it. The Twist face seemed to work even better (especially on heeled shots) than the M3 440 which I was happy with last season. Looking forward to really working it out for more than an hour or so.  
Much more work to do!

This seems to be the finding of the several reviews out currently.....Higher trajectory with low spin.  Thanks for verifying this.
Here is the Rick Shiels results.

I find Ricks review slightly flawed as he didn't hit his gamer at all, just stated his "usual speeds" and then said it was slower than his gamer...even though in testing vs last years product it was faster...

Me too a little. At first I liked the idea of his optimal performance chart or whatever he calls it, but now it seems like he just finds a couple stats to point out that either make it a great driver or a lousy driver. Since that's started, his reviews seem to be focused to much on numbers and having a nice looking video. He says he's going out to the course, then shows some cinematic shots for a couple minutes with music over it. That doesn't help me at all. I think he was his best back when he and Pete both got the studio and when they moved into this one. I'm still a fan of Rick's, but get back to talking about how you like the clubs feel and sound. His reviews for the TM drivers the past couple years haven't made me think any more or less or them.

His reviews aren't very good anymore. Neither are crossfield's. Except for the fact that he hits it a mile, Alex from Golfbox gives the best reviews now.

Rick basically stopped doing reviews of fairways and hybrids...

Wonder why all the equipment reviewers are british? (Yes, I know Alex is an aussie)

since it looks like the standard shafts that big box stores will be getting are Tensei Orange and Hrzdus Smoke, are they doing anything different with these two to get the same D4 swingweight advertised?  Different length shafts maybe?  I though since the Orange is counterbalanced it would come in a few points lower then the smoke if it was the same length and head weight.

I don't think the non pro orange is anywhere as counterbalanced as the pro orange which is 3 swt points.

That would seem to go again the marketing claim. But, I don't know what their target CT is for retail and tour heads. If they put too much goo in a head, do they just send it through? I would doubt they'd fail it. Maybe they can't get it out easily once it's in.

I'm no expert, just relaying what I have seen in the past, but that towel was definitely in pictures of reported to be counterfeit heads.  I could wrong for sure, just passing along info.
