I've watched way too many videos on the new Cobra, Callaway and TM driver offerings for 2019 than I care to admit.  One thing I am consistently seeing is that a lot of the distance gains are actually coming from reduced spin numbers from prior generations.  Is this going to be any good for those kids that have sub 100 mph swing speeds that might need the additional spin to keep the ball in the air?

less spin is not always good especially for juniors.  I agree that most need spin to help them get the ball in the air more. It be nice is some of these OEM made tiger lofts than just 12.  Create a driver that has 14 problem is with that is most Men would never touch it and the amount of junior sells wouldn't justify them producing a driver like that. I know some juniors at age 8 that use a 10.5 when clearly the need a lot more loft.

Cant wait to see how it works. My son is happy with his US kids tour 54. But I will probably buy one soon. Just need to figure out how to not let the wife find out. 500 for a set of wedges sent her to the edge. Honestly wouldn't take but a dozen balls and a pack of tees to topple her on over 😁.

My son received an M2 last year as a birthday gift.  I've convinced him he won't ever need another driver until he can afford to buy his own.  Beauty of shaft adaptors..

But to address your question, at least at my son's age he doesn't hit the ball hard enough or far enough where I think spin is mattering much yet.  The higher he can launch it with the little spin he can put on it the further it seems to fly.  The rollout is where things can change drastically.  We can get anywhere from 10-40yards of roll out depending on how high we set the loft, which can make more of a difference on the overall driver shot.  Lower loft makes for more rollout, but less air time.  Just depends what we want for the course we're playing.
