Found the one thing the m4 doesn't have over the 16 m2....off the deck

Off the deck, my 9.5 16 m2 was easy to hit. My 8.5 m4 is...a no go. Can't even elevate it.

With all due respect, that's what 3 woods are for. Haha.

Well, ya...but, 260-270, into the wind, I could bust that m2 and get there. It was also a really handy shot to play on par 4 holes that were 400-420 and into the wind. Line up down the left side and just bust it.

I think you just need a deep faced 3 wood like M6 Tour or M2 2016 deep face. Spin rates off the deck for me are only about 400 higher than my driver off the tee.

It's all good. My 3wood is plenty long enough. That off the deck driver shot doesn't come up that often. I can tee the par 4 shot up to 3wood height and hit the same shot.

My 3wood is called stenson. It isn't going anywhere..

Once you find a 3 wood you trust, even if it's replaced at some point, never sell it. I've made that blunder a couple of times only to severely regret it for year. It's why every wood head I play, I have at least 1-2 backups on hand in case anything was to happen to it.

Yep. I have a backup head of my stenson that's never been hit. At some point I'll likely pick up a backup m4 driver head.

I know most people use 460 heads for obvious reasons. For some reason, I get along better with 440 heads, whether it was the Titleist d4 driver from a few years back or recent offerings. Have you done any testing with the 2016 m1 430 vs 2017 m1 440 vs m3 440? I loathed the 2016 m1 430 and for some reason, the 2017 m1 440 was a much hotter face for me than the m3 440.

Yes we test them all every year. I wanted to include them in this test but I could not locate a 2016 head with the specs I needed for valid comparison. Everything we had in house was just too far off the specs of the 17' and M5 heads and we didn't want to put up a baseless comparison.

Are you able to comment on what you thought of the smaller M5 head? Is the forgiveness loss enough for you to not consider it given your swing speed?

The 460 head spins so little that I'd see no reason to go smaller this year.

As long as I can get launch and spin where I want them, I'll always go with the more forgiving head.

I do not wish make a commitment on that just yet. haha. I've got to see what the M5 does on the course first, but there's a chance I may change over, and I'll explain why when I decide. I'll be in Arizona to visit friends for a 3 day weekend here in the next few weeks and I'm taking both along to get some serious course time with.

Thats fair enough. Im on the fence about it myself. The m4 has been amazing but the m5 really has my attention to try out. Are you guys going to have m5/6 tour heads like you did with m3/4? Oh and enjoy Arizona, here in VA al I can do is think about golf and not play. Ha

Well I'm stuck here in snow at the moment and can't wait to get back to the warm weather. To answer your question, yes in about 4-5 weeks we will have a nice stock of M5 and M6 Tour issue product. I'll be doing a related data thread along with the arrival of that product.
