My 2p worth


...although I'm not near 100%

I love it ... I love it.... I LOVE It!!

This club is just Fantastic, Granted the FEEL isn't the worlds Best, or the Finish.. But it Flat out Perfoms...

The 2 "sliding Weights" really do work, Noticeably the Spin Track....

I've got mine fitted with the KuroKage Tini shaft

Distance....
As long as anything I've Hit and like I have Said, I'm only on steady Eddie swing....

Not been on the Monitors but I know my Track and its up there with the Best...

Very consistent in Distance and very Point and Shoot!!

 
If your not part of the Solution , then your part of the Problem!!

Rest in Peace “Mi Amigo”

Without a case
But I can't get that even tanned look on my face

Glad it's working for you big D. I've had really good luck with this club as well. Very flat low spin flight. I rather like the feel with the Fuji pro shaft when hit on the screws. TM love them or hate them makes really good drivers.

Wow Justin Rose is really striping this driver miles in the HK Open !!! :)
I got to find a head for my Veylix Arcane shaft and this one is top of the list!

Based on that logic, I hope your swing is like Justin's and you should use the same shaft as him... ;D

I would follow Rose tomorrow after my morning round (another course) and see how far he can hit the M1.  I had one hit last week and the result wasn't good since the shaft was too stiff for me.

I hit this a couple times today.  It goes pretty good.  Not a fan of much besides the distance and forgiveness though but those are 2 pretty important things....

And it's a BARGAIN at $500 (can get them for $400ish) compared to JDM, and it also comes with a shaft! Haha...I'm still toying with mine. This next week should give me a good idea if it's staying or going.

Usdm is never gonna stay permenent...but...they do make some good performing toys....it's kinda like the difference between an awesome fast food restaurant vs a fine meal at a 5 star restaurant...or the diff btw a 20$ bottle of wine versus a 100$ bottle of wine...the Callaway big Bertha Alpha is a great club, they all know how to make clubs that perform...they just have a shorterroduct lifecycle...

I hit my Callaway BBB Alpha as long as anything, but eventually got $150 for it after 6 months! Bah ! Don't regret it as I got to have so much more fun with my JDM clubs subsequently. So saying, I am waiting for an M1 head to come up at a price that would make it fun to try. I know it would look so good with the pearly white Veylix Arcane shaft.

It's really about getting the right shaft for the combination of both your swing and the head...if that is accomplished, a lot of the heads produced can perform well...

From there it's all about tuning the feel and the sound so the strikes are pleasing.

Many Epon heads can be long w the right shaft and loft for certain golf swings...my 153 and 904d are as long as any or longer now that I have the shafts dialed in...the m1 is just as long as these for me w a draw bias.  I do like the adjustability because the swing changes sometimes and u can tune your ball flight....

Man the M1 is a MONSTER.

I'm getting back into the swing of things having had a winter off so I took my trusty gamers to the local golf shop for a swing off. I had to pretend I was interested in buying a driver so I picked up a M1 9.5* with a Kuro Kage Silver Tini 70 X and smashed it.

I haven't bought anything off the shelf since I started playing, opting initially for the Tour Issue stuff before I found the JDM world.

It was close but the aforementioned M1 beat my Crazy 435ii and Basileus AAA 2015 70 X, not to mention my Jbeam 425 and Tour Issue Aldila Rogue 125 MSI Tour X.

You can't argue that the M1 from an adjustability perspective is king. The only downside is the feel, it didn't feel as good as even as the Jbeams I play, which is saying something.

Go out and try it, you will be pleasantly surprised

Nice one MPUK!!
I too hit the M1 a mile. But at the end stuck with my trusty old Ryoma and Emillid.
I actually have an M1 430 cc head which I was planning on listing. Excellent condition of course. .....and in the spirit of hoing would so much prefer to trade than sell it outright :) Perhaps if someone has a 23* FW.....
Ash also uses the M1 as his gamer this season I believe.
..says something about this TM club.
