What's the difference between the 3 and 4?

I'm in the market, it feels like the sliding weights are the kicker.

M3 moveable weights. Two head sizes. Less forgiving.

M4 more forgiving, no changeable weights, available in a draw version as well as standard version.

Still in the bag (M4 with Billy Bobs 10gram rear weight) and nothing has been able to knock it out.  All thought I am pretty sure its almost gone with the new Mizuno ST190 on deck for a fitting.

Love my M3 440. I may go for a Club Champion fitting to see if there is a better combo.

A little off-topic, but got an M4 3 FW, stock Atmos shaft last Fall, and man that thing is down the middle and L O N G. I seem to hit it center-face most times, and the confidence it gave me lets me give it a rip. Used it for my driving club all Fall.

I played the M3 all of last season, really didn’t like it at first because I really couldn’t remember the settings from my fitting session. The first few rounds on the course were terrible, hitting way too high, missing both ways, spent another afternoon on the range and I took the 9.5 head down to 7.5, one weight all the way forward and the other weight in the middle, since making that change it has been the best club in my bag in a very long time.

Never thought I’d kick my m3 out of the bag. Then gained 11yds with my 8.5 ts3

Why do think that is?   Higher ball speed?  Lower spin?  Can you provide any data?

Here’s my thoughts... 10+ yards just changing clubs means that you weren’t properly fit before.  Drivers are all too close in performance nowadays.

Ping, titleist and callaway have more offset in the driver ie. the face looks closed at address than M3/4, even more than m2. Some ppl need that much offset to hit straight or draw.

I have an M3 will be trying it out against the new F9 identical specs

I bought a 9.5 M3 last year and tried it with the weights forwarded just never liked it ended up selling it

Then in the fall bought a 8.5 clicked it one low and have the weights set Koepka style and I ended up keeping it and being pretty Happy

Moral of the story need to really mess around or get fit with the M3 to find the right combo for you. Once you do its a monster
